The Battle of the Ages – One Piece v Bikini which is better?

Zealous Bikinis and One Pieces 2016

There are so many option out there when it comes to swimwear that is suitable for training. If you are torn between a sports bikini and a one piece, we have got you covered! Whether you are a pool newbie or are just looking to mix things up, it is easy to find the perfect suit once you know what you are looking for.

When you are searching for a swimsuit that is suitable for sports, you are going to a find a million and one different sports bikinis and one piece options. Deciding which one is right for you takes some planning. Here are a few things to be on the lookout for when you start browsing.

When it comes to one piece swimsuits, a lot of women are in love with racer back swimsuits. Ultimately, it has a lot to do with personal preference but you’ll generally find that racer back suits allow a great freedom of movement and you don’t have to mess around with falling straps.  If you don’t like the feel of the racer back, check out anything with a relatively high back and neckline. Lower necklines and back cuts just aren’t supportive enough to be suitable for training.

While it might not be as sexy, a lower leg cut is usually your best bet too. You don’t want anything so high or tight that you can’t focus on getting laps in! Ultimately, it is still preference though. If you prefer a slightly higher cut, go for it. Just make sure you don’t have to tug at it.

As far as sports bikinis go, the fit will depend on what you are doing. While they can be suitable for training, not all two pieces are created equally. A wide open centre allows you to flaunt your abs and will let you go faster in the water. Longer tankini styles are great for relaxing at the beach but will definitely create lag in the pool.

Another thing to think about is bust support. While all of us have different needs in that department, some support is essential for everyone. You want to focus on keep everything where is should be and having enough support so that you can move easily and without feeling like you are about to pop out of your suit!

Front lining is always important for both bust support and overall comfort. It’ll make your suit last longer and fit better. Make sure it is  chlorine resistant fabric too or it’ll never hold up. In general, you should make sure that you have good coverage. Whether you go with a sports bikini or one piece suit, you need to make sure that you have enough coverage on the top and bottom. Swimming is a full body sport and you need to make sure your swimsuit is going to stay in place. Don’t be afraid to get crazy when you are trying on suits! If you are a total newbie, you might need to try a few suits before you know exactly what works for you.

While there are some seriously gorgeous sports bikini and one pieces out there, there are some major differences between fashion swimsuits and gear that is suitable for training. Before you buy, check for technical info. Look for fabric that is chlorine resistant and cuts that are suitable for training.

Ready? Let’s get shopping, ladies!
