Welcome to our Swimwear Guide

Can you tell your jammers from your briefs, leggings, swim shirts, stingersuits, and diveskins?

There is much more to swimwear than bikinis and shorts. Today you have a wide choice of swimming clothes with many names and terms for similar garments, depending on their intended use. We hope to clarify this a bit.

The trend is for both men and women to cover up more and stay safe from sunburn and jellyfish stings. Full-body swimsuits or separate sets consisting of leggings, swim shirt, hoodie, and skirt or shorts, are now what sophisticated people wear on the beach and in the pool.

Test Reviews

Our keen swimmers will check out any kit we get our hands on and write a review with links to suppliers.

First Look

When we see interesting new swimwear, we write a brief report for our readers, either as part of an article or on a page of its own. This may be about swim clothes seen at a shop, a trade show, or some other event. First look usually means that we haven't tried them in the water yet.

Full Reviews

Whenever we get our hands on new swimwear we test it under realistic conditions for a detailed full review. These get updated over time after we've used the samples for a while.

First we try the swimwear in the pool to see how it fits and feels in the water, and how comfortable it really is when worn wet over a longer time. This may require several swimming sessions to assess the chlorine resistance and durability.

Splash Sports

Swimsuits, swim shirts and leggings make great aquatic underwear or base layer under waterproof splash clothes. This requires a variety of tests in different combinations. We test how it performs for canoeing, sailing, or surfing, and how good the design is for readers who really enjoy watersports, rather than wear it as a fashion statement.

Manufacturers: Promote !

If you're a swimwear manufacturer, send us products for review. You get publicity on a busy website for the cost of a product sample. Reviews carry a clickable link to the supplier's website so our readers can order the products we've reviewed. If a supplier provides more than one item, they get a dedicated section with a company profile.

Affiliate Partnerships

When we come across really good products, we like to share them with our readers who come here to find the best and most original swimwear. If you run an affiliate program, talk to us.
