The Finals released a new range of chlorine resistant swimwear that features brilliantly coloured prints inspired by Aztec art. The patterns of each one piece has neon geometric designs on a black background that makes for a fierce look for training, swim meets or even just lounging by the pool.
For those of you don’t know about the Aztecs, they were an unstoppable civilization that occupied current day Mexico. If it had not been for small pox and other diseases the Europeans contracted to them, it is likely the civilization would still be around today. The Aztec people were an advanced civilization with education, sports, art and laws, but they were also definitely tough warriors that gave the Spanish conquerors a tough time. Despite a lowered population and primitive weapons, the Aztecs almost beat the Spaniards, but unfortunately they were defeated by the Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés.
Anyone who has ever been to a swim meet can relate to the Aztecs, because no matter how good you are there is always someone who can beat you. In the end only one swimmer can take away a victory from each race. Only by giving it all, like the Aztecs did, can you find out who will be the first to touch out. Unlike the Aztecs, you can work harder to succeed at the next match if you lose.
If you have the determination to give it all, then the Aztec one piece from The Finals is for you. These one pieces are available in womens and girls, so no matter what your age you can let your inner warrior out into the pool. These one pieces come in a variety of shades and colour, so let us tell you about the different options available.
For swimmers looking for swimwear that matches the colour of the water, you’ll enjoy the aqua tones of the Aztec Blue & Green One Piece. The background alternates whimsically between aqua blue and sea green.
For those who want a fiery look, you’ll find a perfect match in the Aztec Black & Orange One Piece. A fiery orange is balanced out with a midnight black that will help you easily access all of the passion you have to do your best in the pool.
If you like a colourful look, we think you’ll enjoy the Aztec Multicolour One Piece. Ruby red, forest green, blue and green make up strips of the background to create a unique look that looks great in the water.
Not into any of these designs or colour? Then make sure to check out the rest of the one pieces The Finals released this October at swimmer.com.au. We especially liked their Funnies Range that features a bunch of sparkly and unique designs.
Who says glitz and glamour don’t belong in the pool? The Finals just released a fabulously blinged out line of one piece swimwear that you are going to just love! These sparkling one pieces are known as Funnies swimwear due to their fun-loving designs. Each one piece has a touch or originality that’ll help you shine in the pool.
Let us introduce you to the range of Funnies Swimwear that ad a bit of much-needed femininity to the water. Who says that you can’t still be a kick butt athlete while you are being girlie anyways? All of these fun prints are available in girls one pieces and womens one pieces, so make sure to check each design out!
Welcome to the Jungle
Only the tough can survive among the animals of the jungle, but we think you are cut out to swing in the vines with Tarzan. The Jungle One Piece takes swirls of animal prints in rainbow colours to create an absolutely wild design. Ever seen a pink tiger? Neither have we, but the stunningly hot pink tiger print looks amazing. Great for girls who have a bit of a wild side they like to let loose in the pool.
Panic at the Disco
Do you just love shiny disco balls? You are going to like the print of the Puzzle One Piece that is made of shards of a disco ball on a black background. The reflection of this blinged out one piece is perfect for girls and women who like to shine at everything they do. When you pass your competitors in the pool they’ll be blinded by the light reflecting off your disco-ball-like one piece. Okay, we may be making that last part up, but you get the idea.
Every Girls is a Princess
Are you in touch with your inner princess? With the Princess One Piece you can let her out with this fabulous print that features every princess’ favourite colours: pink, purple and aqua blue. The colours all make a lovely abstract pattern that is fit for any future queen. This one piece is perfect for girls who like all the good things in life, including cute swimwear for the pool.
For the Ice Queens
Can you just not wait for the chill of winter every year? Then you are going to love the Snowflake One Piece that features a print with snowflakes that are shiny as the most beautiful icicles. All of this is on a chilly blue background that looks stunning in and out of the water. This is a perfect look for girls who want to freeze their competition in place.
College swimming coach and writer Matthew Allan hit the nail on the head when he wrote about swimming:
“In our sport it is natural and necessary to set up goals to inspire us. We all want to achieve the next level, the break-thru performance. What we (all of us) must not forget is that the journey to these goals is the best part. The daily process of obtaining success takes up the majority of our time and effort throughout our lives. Remember to appreciate what you’ve done in the past and what you are doing in the present on your way to higher goals. This will allow you to always strive for something more without missing out on the fact that your path to success is as much a starting point as it is a finish line.”
All swimmers know the importance of finishing. Whether it is finishing the last lap at practice or finishing at a meet, pushing to the end is the most important thing to all swimmers. Sacrificing any finish line, no matter how small, is as good as giving up. Just pushing halfway is just something that swimmers do not do.
So what keeps you going in water? Your family? Your team? Your dreams? The bar of chocolate you get after practice? Or is it your swimwear?
We at swimmer.com.au are obviously a little bias on this point, but we find that swimwear can serve as a symbol of everything that we want to be in and out of the water. The perfect piece of fitness swimwear makes you feel at home in the pool, but also represents something to remind you to give everything you’ve got.
With this reasoning we absolutely love The Finals swimwear. The Finals represents our end goal to be first at the touch out when it comes times to compete, and all of the steps it takes to become a champion. Let us introduce you to our favourite mens jammers from The Finals swimwear that has the potential to transform your performance in the pool if you allow it.
The Aztec Blue & Green Jammers and The Aztec Multicolour Jammers both serve as a totem to the strength of the powerful fallen empire of the South American civilization, the Aztecs. Channel the energy of warriors with these jammers. They also just happen to be chlorine resistant jammers that ensure the powerful look these jammers doesn’t fade after the first few visits to the pool.
The Onyx Green Jammers and Onyx Blue Jammers allow you to gather strength from the onyx stone that is forms inside of lava. Only under pressure and heat can you and the onyx stone truly reach your maximum potential for greatness. The sleek curved panel of the print is fired up with a colourful print that looks bad ass in the water.
Do you sometimes get a little too heated at swim matches, so much so that it throws off your game? In ancient times European soldiers used to use the amethyst stone to protect them in the battle field and keep them level headed. You can channel this ancient energy by getting the cooling Amethyst Jammers.
The Finals released a new range of girls and womens one pieces called Onyx. The Onyx print takes the jagged and elaborate design of the onyx gemstone, but adds in splashes of fun colours to make things a little more exciting. The Onyx gemstone itself is just boring old black, so we were happy to see this update to the theme of the design by the creative team of The Finals. The change in colour certainly does not change the symbolic meaning behind Onyx gemstones.
Back in the day before modern medicine “doctors” used to think certain types of gemstones had metaphysical powers. If you had a cold they would go tell you to get a certain type of gem stone. If you wanted a healthy pregnancy, they would recommend another. It all really seems rather silly in a day in age where we have awesome things like antibiotics, prenatal care, etc.
However, modernity does not have to replace the powerful symbolism behind gemstones though. Even though we will not be running to the local quarry next time we aren’t feeling so great, we can still take away the positive meaning behind these stones to give us power. Even if it is a placebo, it can still work.
The Onyx stone had a particular powerful place to help people ward away negativity. As swimmers we all know about the negative voice in our head that gets down for us on losing, not getting the pool enough or any number of bad things. Dwelling on these bad things is terribly unhealthy for us. By ridding ourselves of negativity we boost our confidence and improve our performance. The fact is if you are distracted by negative thoughts you can’t put your focus on actually doing positive things, like swimming for example.
If you need a little extra boost to help you be happier, maybe you’ll find a great match in The Finals Onyx line of One Pieces. Let us introduce you to the different colours of the Onyx One Pieces.
The Onyx Green One Piece features a rainbow of shades of green. The neon shades of green on this one piece remind us of science fiction movies, like Star Trek. This is the perfect one piece for ladies who want to live long and prosper.
The Onyx Blue One Piece features icy tones of blue that will have you dreaming of a winter wonderland. Haven’t gotten enough of winter yet? Well you can revisit the snow, ice and cold with this one piece.
Are you a wild child? Then you will fall in love with the night life colours featured in the Onyx Purple One Piece. Access the part of you that wants to dance all night long, but make sure you still have the energy to swim all day.
Is one colour just not enough for you? Then check out the colourful Onyx Blue & Green One Piece. All of the shades of blue and green morph together to create an intricate design that is perfect for ladies who like a little bit of variety in their swimwear.
Have you introduced your daughter to the Addams Family Movie yet? Maybe she is still a little too small still, because this movie is rated PG-13 after all. Or maybe you are a more liberal spirited family that lets the kids watch what they want for the most part. Either way you can have fun with Rivals new girls toddlers swimwear that set out to honour everyone’s favourite little Addams, Wednesday.
Wednesday’s character was known for her memorable role as the young daughter with a dark attitude like you can see in this scene from the Family Values where Wednesday pretends to not to be able to swim in order to not save her fellow camp mate. Wednesday knew how to bring the clouds out on any sunny day to make us all laugh at our own optimistic trifles.
The Wednesday Girls Tutu Cute One Piece captures some of the characters inner darkness with midnight black and hot pink. The cut of this one piece include a cute little skirt that compliments the striped-edgy look of this swimwear. Ruching on the chest of the swimwear gives the pattern a little extra fun texture. It is a perfect spooky look for little girls who love to twirl while working on their evillest laugh for Halloween.
For a cover up there is the Wednesday Girls Rash Shirt that features the same cute and black and pink colours of the one piece. A skull and bone decal with a girlie bow gives this look a frighteningly cute touch. To put a bit of punk rock style in it there are black and pink ruffle details on the long sleeves. Great for girls who love there scary things to come in pink!
If you and your little girl wished Halloween was more than once a year she is just going to love this creepy twist on swimwear. Who says a bit of Halloween Celebration can go on in the pool anyways? Happy Halloween from swimmer.com.au!
Halloween, Chick Flicks, Margaritas and Tropical Paradise All Packed in One Fabulous Piece of Swimwear
“Midnight Margaritas!!!” Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman screech together in bed in the famous scene from the chick flick Practical Magic. For those of you haven’t seen the movie it is about two witch sisters who are cursed to fall in love with men that die shortly afterwards. It is the perfect flick to get your prepared for Halloween which will be coming up before you know it. One memorable scene from Practical Magic is when the girls and their aunts dance to “The Lime and the Coconut” song while enjoying their “midnight margaritas”.
Rival’s Lime in the Coconut reminded us of that fun scene. There is so much more to this fitness swimwear from Rival than the reference to the great song! The print reminded us of all sorts of good things.

Each cube is stamped with black bold letters and numbers giving this look an extra bold feel. The photographs of the Lime in the Coconut swimwear all take a little snapshot of paradise.

Love is a powerful force that can give us motivation in the pool. Whether it is love of swimming, family, friends, significant other or pet gold fish does not matter. Everyone’s famous Beattle and strong endorser of love John Lennon had a thing or two to say about love, but the following is one of our favourite quotes from the musician on the subject.
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance.” John Lennon
When passion, excitement and acceptance fuel our swimming, it makes us better swimmers. Every swimmer faces a moment in their training that requires them to put aside negativity and push harder or just even get into the water.
Love is our favourite emotion, and it is too bad that Valentine’s Day only rolls around once a year. There is never a bad time to celebrate love in the world, (even if it is just the long-term relationship you have with the pool). You do not have to wait around until February for Cupid to prick you with one of his arrows thanks to Rival Swimwear, because you can fall in love with their athletic swimwear without first dates, love letters or any of that junk. This fall Rival Swimwear released a little bit of love for everyone to enjoy with their new range of fitness swimwear available in womens swimwear and girls swimwear.
Rival’s Cupid fitness swimwear takes all the good things about Valentine’s Day then puts them on a cute fashionable print featuring bright purple and chalk white hearts. The hearts cascade down the print up and down, occasionally overlapping. The crazy pattern of the hearts is just about as crazy as love can be. The only thing is missing is the chocolate.
In womens sizes you can embrace the Cupids Womens One Piece or the Cupid Womens Sports Bikini. The Cupid womens style is trimmed a dark purple that compliments the colours of the hearts. With 100% polyester, full front lining and thin straps the Cupid One Piece and Cupid Sports Bikini are perfect for those who want a bit of cutesy look for when they are putting in time at the pool.
For girls, there is the Cupid Girls Sports Bikini and Cupid Girls One Piece. The one piece features a trim that matches the rest of the print, so the swimwear actually appears to have no trim to make for an extremely unique look. The sports bikini is trimmed with a light purple that compliments the white and purple hearts of the print. Both of these are cuts for girl athletes who love the smell of chlorine in the morning, but wouldn’t mind adding something a little touch of girlieness to their kick butt style in the pool.
Rival just introduced a new range of swimwear this spring that’ll have your eyes popping from its bodacious colours here at swimmer.com.au.

Freddy Bondi Blue is inspired by the Australian beachside lifestyle that Rival Swimwear makers have experienced firsthand since their business is run right out of our own backyard here in Australia. The Bondi Blue is available in womens swimwear, mens swimwear and boys swimwear. Let us tell you a little more about each gender specific design of the Freddy Bondi Blue swimwear line.

This is perfect for women who love to work hard in the pool, so that they can play hard as a reward.

The Speedo logo is printed in bold pastel, frosted letters. Two small ice cream cones rest on the hip.
To keep the sun off your little ones shoulders, the Ice Dream Toddler Girls Sun Top is a perfect choice. If you are taking a tropical vacation with your little girl this winter season, you’ll still need to make sure you have the summer gear to protect her delicate skin.
