Shopping for a swimsuit can be daunting, especially when it comes to activewear. When you order a suit for the beach, in most cases, you can mess around with a bikini’s ties to adjust it to your body’s shape. With a one-piece swimsuit, you don’t have the option. If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t fit. You’ll have to return it. And if you try to wear your recreational suit while doing laps, you might find that it doesn’t stay where it’s supposed to, which is a frustrating experience that’ll leave you on edge. You don’t want to have to worry about a rogue bikini top when you’re focusing on your form and breathing patterns.
We found the best active swimwear that fits properly and can stay up and on when you’re working out. These swimsuits are flattering and fashionable, so you can feel confident diving headfirst into the water.
Before you scroll down and click “add to cart” though, there’s something you need to do. You need to pull out a measuring tape and take down your measurements. If you go with the logic that you’re a medium in regular clothes, so you should be a medium in a swimsuit, you might find yourself with an item that doesn’t remotely fit. You should measure the fullest part of your bust, the narrowest part of your waist, the widest part of your hips and the length of your torso. After you’ve written down your numbers, consult the swimwear company’s sizing guide and then you can order.
