Fitness, athletic and recreational swimmers all have different taste in straps. Straps are one of the most integral pieces of a swimsuits design, and that is why there is such a wide variety of options of strap configurations offered by swimwear companies like Speedo. The new line of Speedo swimwear offers a wide variety of unique strap options for girls swimwear, so we decided to write a blog featuring our favourite straps.
1. The V-Strap
The V-Strap option for athletic swimwear offers the comfort of a more casual swimsuit with the support of an athletic swimsuit. This strap option offers a unique v support that goes to a firm binding horizontal strap. As a bonus, the v-straps are adjustable with little plastic clips, so that the straps can be set to match each individual swimmer’s body type. The V-Strap configuration is featured in the Cosmic Giraffe Girls One Piece, but you can find it in other prints of Speedo swimwear as well.
2. Convertible Straps
These types of straps provide two unique settings of being either a trickback or a crossback. A trick back offers two vertical straps over the shoulders that connect to one horizontal strap. The crossback has two straps that cross then connect to one horizontal binding strap. The swimwear comes with extra straps, so that you can alternate to whichever strap configuration suits the swimmers preference that day. You can find the convertible straps in the Tribal Stripes Girls One Piece and the Tribal Stripes Girls Sports Bikini.
3. Non Fixed Straps
The Catalyst Girls One Piece by far offers the most freedom in the arms, back and shoulders with their non fixed straps. These thin straps go over the shoulders then criss-cross across the back to make for a casual fit. Some of us just hate to be strapped in by our swimwear, and the non fixed straps give a comfortable alternative to traditional straps.

At national titles at Brisbane in April 2014, Arena athlete, James Magnussen was shockingly defeated by Cameron McEvoy in the 100 metre freestyle final. In an interview with smh.com.au, Magnussen discussed how his ambitions for beating the world record altered his performance for the worse.
"I've got this mindset where I start chasing that world record and I think to give myself a chance of getting it. I just go out too hard and the rest is history.
... I botched my start and botched my turn and they're pretty simple areas to get right; so I self-destructed a bit but we have plenty of time to (the Commonwealth Games)," Magnussen told smh.com.au.
I think most competitive swimmers can relate to this story. Often it is the things that we practice one million times that we end up messing up at swim competitions, and even the smallest mistake can mean not being first to touch out in the fierce competitive world of swimming.
McEvoy, who took home the victory, claimed to be more competing against himself. McEvoy told smh:
"We were like, alright we can work on this, this and this; try to beat my own time leading up to the Commonwealth Games, that's what swimming, or sport, really, is about. You're always trying to best yourself every time you set out to whatever competition you're doing."
There definitely is a lesson to be learned from this story. Rather than competing against some abstract idea, whether it be to beat world records, shoot for the Olympics or impress that cute girl at the meet, it is always better to just focus on doing our personal best in the pool. In the end, during swim meets it is all about your own personal performance in the pool, so focusing on anything outside of your own body is just a distraction.
Part of being able to focus on doing our best is having high quality swimwear that doesn’t distract us. That is why for mens swimwear and boys swimwear from Arena we really liked the straight forward athletic cut of their new line of swimwear. The design of these athletic jammers feature a snug fit with a no frills print that will let you keep your focus in the water. If simple and high quality swimwear seems to fit the bill for your swimming needs check out the Arena Board Mens Jammers and the Arena Board Boys Jammers.
Ready to go globe trotting? Don’t have the budget for it yet? With the new line of Vorgee Global Silicone Swim Caps you can travel the world’s top destinations every time you hit the water. These new swim caps feature 9 of the world’s most desired travelers’ destinations. In this blog we’ll tell you all of the highlights on each swim cap.

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great!”
Swimming is a sport in which we are forced to constantly encounter competition. Whether we are racing to finish first or to achieve our fitness goals, the challenge is always to push harder to improve our performance in the pool. This requires a great deal of hard work and drive to achieve. With the new Diana Swimwear kneelengths, you can pick out a design that’ll help you channel the best parts of your personality in the pool to help achieve your swimming goals.
Although there are coaches, family, teammates and other competition- ultimately in the swimming world we’ve got to rely on ourselves. Having the best swimwear helps get us there. So let us introduce you to the killer new kneelengths from Diana Swimwear!
Get in touch with your inner big kitty cat with the Diana Roar Kneelength. This competitive swimwear will have you pouncing across the pool with cheetah coloured spots along the body of the swimwear. The black spots are highlighted by the midnight black material that composes the rest of the swimsuit.

The fun sort of spacy design will have you blasting through space, I mean the pool, like you are rocket powered! Diana’s tough chlorine-resistant material will help reduce drag and maintain the integrity of the swimwear, so that you can enjoy this Firefly-themed swimwear long after hopes of the show ever coming back have subsided.
The amount of power flowers actually have is immensely underrated. We’ve all seen examples where the dainty little flower manages to grow through the crack of a sidewalk. Channel this type of perseverance with the Diana Lacy Kneelength that feature blue on light blue floral designs. Intertwining leaves and stems create an intricate patterns that is feminine, but I think all of us here know girly doesn’t mean wimpy!
The bright colours and patterns of the Diana Zig Zag kneelength reminded us of a mixture of button candy and Tetris. This retro-themed kneelength is perfect for swimmers who love to go old school when it comes to their swimwear. So blast some Madonna from your boom box, put on some legwarmers and hop into the pool!
There is just one important question we have to ask you before we start this section: do you like your shiny in blue or pink? With Diana’s new Diana Shiny Pink Kneelength and Diana Shiny Blue Kneelength you can have your shiny whichever way you want. Waves of blue and pink sparkle and shine down the entirety of these kneelength to create a truly inspiring design for training and competing!
