Choosing a men's swimsuit: Men's swimsuits come in a variety of styles, including briefs, drag suits, leggings, jammers and square leg suits. Professional swimmers and serious athletes often wear briefs because the minimal amount of material decreases the amount of drag you experience in the pool while you're swimming laps. This is what increases your speed. On the other hand, drag suits increase drag, slowing you down and forcing you to work harder. They make for great training and strengthening tools. If you're not comfortable with the coverage briefs provide, consider trying jammers, which cover most of your thigh. They're longer, sort of like boxer briefs, but they still resist drag and help you glide faster in the water. Swim leggings are even longer and may cover your leg down to the shin or ankle, but they're also good for reducing drag. Square leg suits are longer than briefs but shorter than jammers, and they're better for training rather than racing.
Choosing a women's swimsuit: Women may actually have fewer options in terms of overall style and cut when it comes to swimsuits for athletic activity, but you do still have some choices to make. Of course, the most common suit used during practice, training and racing is the one-piece. They come in a variety of styles, but the more snug the fit is, the better the suit is. for reducing drag and improving your speed and ability to glide through the water. Two-piece suits are available in both bikini and tankini styles. While two-piece swimsuits weren't traditionally used for training or athletic activities, many manufacturers are making them more secure so that they stay in place better while you swim or work out. Many men and women opt to wear rashguards while swimming or working out in the water, particularly when they're outdoors. These fit like long-sleeve shirts and protect you from the sun.
Choosing a swim cap: Swim caps can come in handy for both men and women. If you have long hair, they can keep it out of your face while you swim, but they also help reduce drag and improve your speed. And while not all of them can keep your hair completely dry, they can help protect it from chlorine, which is particularly important if you color your hair. If you're planning to swim laps or you swim on a team, look for a cap made from a smooth material, like latex or silicone. Silicone typically lasts longer and doesn't pull or tug at your hair. It also forms better to fit around your hair, so it's typically recommended for men and women with longer hair. Latex is best for people with short or closely cropped hair. Of course, you can also choose your favorite colors, patterns and designs when shopping for swim caps.
Choosing goggles for swimming: Goggles protect your eyes and help you see underwater when you swim. The most important factor that should go into the pair you choose is how well they fit. You don't want them so tight that they squeeze your head and make you feel uncomfortable, but you don't want them so loose that water seeps in while you swim. Competition goggles can help reduce drag and increase speed, though they aren't always comfortable for practice. For this reason, you may want to choose a pair of high-quality practice goggles. They're more comfortable than competition style, but compared to recreational swim goggles, they're well-made and are less likely to allow water into your eyes. If you swim outdoors, consider purchasing goggles with metallic lenses to help protect your eyes from the sun. If you swim indoors or during dark hours, clear lenses should be just fine.
Choosing ear plugs for swimming: While ear plugs aren't a necessity for swimming, many athletes choose to wear them, especially if they're prone to swimmer's ear. Foam ear plugs are inexpensive, but they don't always keep water out of your ears. Silicone ear plugs are reusable, so you get more for your dollar, but not all of them stay in place when you're swimming laps. For this reason, consider silicone putty ear plugs that you can mold to fit your ears. This helps them stay in place better while creating a tighter seal in your ear."
