Female swim suits are available in two sizing styles. The most popular style involves a range from 18-40, in even numbers. You will also find that technical suits are available in even and odd numbered sizes, for a more exact fit. We also offer suits available in traditional dress sizes, ranging from 4-22 in even numbers.
A well-fitted suit should not have any wrinkles in the fabric, but should not be so tight that it is uncomfortable. One good rule of thumb is the straps should not be able to be pulled to your ears. Please keep in mind that suits will become slightly looser in the water, as the suit absorbs water.
Male swim suits are available in two styles, jammers and briefs. The jammer-style suit features fabric on the legs, while the brief-style does not. All male suits are sized by waist size, similar to regular pants ranging from 22-40, in even numbers.
A well-fitted suit should not have any wrinkles in the fabric, but should not be so fit that it is uncomfortable. Unlike traditional board shorts or trunks, jammers are tight fitting to reduce drag. All male suits will feature a drawstring in the waist to keep the suit in place.
Swim Gear carries several different swim suit brands. Each brand will fit a little differently than another, and so we advise various suits are tried on so that the perfect fit can be found.
