According to Left On Friday founders, Shannon Savage and Laura Low Ah Kee, there are a few key factors to keep an eye out for. It’s important to pay attention to the top’s capacity to ensure that you’re not spilling over the cups but that they are not gaping either. In essence, the suit should lay flat without digging into skin much, though since it’s a swimsuit and not rigged denim, it can still have the ability to stretch to cover.
You also want to make sure that the ribcage band is snug enough to feel supportive without being too tight. One way to test this is to put two fingers under the band for proper fit. And lastly, you want to make sure that the straps are comfortable and thick enough to not cause any undue back strain. Wider straps allow for a more secure hold and won’t dig into your shoulders the way a string bikini might. Whether you have a pre-swim hike or beach volleyball on the horizon, it’s important to know that you are wearing a versatile swim-ready top that can do it all. Scroll down for 10 that we love.
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.
