These size charts have been provided to us from each brand and should be used as a guide to help you select the perfect fitting swimwear or equipment.
When it comes to purchasing swimwear, it's important to keep in mind that sizing can vary widely between different brands and styles. Unlike everyday clothing, swimwear is often made with stretchy materials that can be more forgiving in terms of fit. However, even with this stretchiness, the right size can make a big difference in how your swimwear looks and feels.
To ensure that you get the best possible fit, it's important to take a close look at the size chart for the brand and style you're interested in. Each brand may have its own unique sizing system, with different measurements for waist, hips, and bust. Additionally, different styles may fit differently depending on the cut and design of the garment. For example, a one-piece swimsuit may fit differently than a bikini, and a high-waisted style may have different measurements than a low-rise one.
By taking the time to carefully review the size chart for your chosen brand and style, you can avoid the frustration of ordering swimwear that doesn't fit properly. Keep in mind that the right size can not only enhance the look of your swimwear, but can also ensure that you feel comfortable and confident while wearing it. So if you're in the market for new swimwear, be sure to take a close look at the size chart and consider trying on multiple sizes to find your perfect fit.
As a general rule training swimwear should fit comfortably whereas racing swimwear should be a firm fit and take longer to put on.
Chest: Measure under your arm, around the fullest part of your chest and around your back to the starting point under your arm.
Waist: Bend to one side to find the crease of your waist. Stand straight.
For female suits, measure around your waist allowing one finger between your body and the tape.
For male suits, measure 2.5cm below waist or just above the hip bone (where you would normally wear your swimsuit).
Hips: Stand straight, find the top of your hip bone. Measure around your hips, keeping the tape on the top of your hip bone.
Torso / Body Loop: Run tape measure over the fullest portion of your bust, down between your legs and up your back to your shoulder.
