The best sports swimwear 2022

.

Looking for sports swimwear, you can rely on? Then you’ve come to the right place.

One of the best things about warmer weather is getting the chance to whip out your costume, take your workout to the nearest outdoor pool and reap some of those numerous swimming benefits. And boy, have things been heating up lately (yes, heatwave, we’re referring to you).

But not all swimwear has been made with performance in mind. So if you’re looking to perfect your strokes or get in those laps, you’ll want to make sure your suit is specifically made with fitness in mind.

Sports swimwear is generally made from a chlorine-resistant fabric that will last many a training session in the pool and has been cut to allow you complete freedom of movement. Most will aim to be as comfortable and supportive as possible so that you can focus on what you’re doing rather than what you’re wearing or who you might be flashing. The best options will feel like a second skin and minimize drag so that you are able to move as quickly and smoothly through the water as possible.

That doesn’t mean your time to and from your lane has to be spent hoping you don’t run into anyone you know, though. These days, a lot of swimming costumes designed for sport are just as good-looking as they are practical. From funky one-pieces to simple yet substantial bikinis, there are plenty of options available.

Suppose you’re not too particular about the sports part of sports swimwear.
