Different occasions call for different clothes. We know this is true for ordinary clothes, but it applies to swimwear as well. You need to wear the right outfit for the right situation, and sometimes one style doesn’t suit all occasions. Sometimes, some swimwear is downright inappropriate for certain situations.
Let’s take the public swimming pool as one common place that most people wear swimwear to. For some people, it’s the only place they go swimming. What’s appropriate swimwear to wear at the swimming pool?
At the public swimming pool, you can get away with sexy outfits (plunging necklines in a one-piece or skimpy string bikinis), but they need a lot of confidence and a touch of chutzpah to wear in this situation. Most of us would probably prefer something with a lot more coverage – one piece swimsuits, tankinis and the sturdier designs of bikini usually fit the bill. These are appropriate wear for those who go to the swimming pool to play with the children, relax and have fun with friends or even (if your local pool is like the one in my neighbourhood) soak in a hot Jacuzzi.
tankini bottoms with boyleg cuts or even cover-up shorts to be worn over your regular swim suit.
Local swimming pools are often the training grounds for those who swim as a competitive sport. Members of a competitive swimming club are best to choose one-piece styles with racerback cuts, preferably in a plain colour. This is one situation where you don’t want to stand out from the crowd: you’re part of a team and your swimsuit is your team uniform. Plain black is always popular (maybe with a touch of detailing here and there or a few “go faster stripes”), but navy blue or even maroon might suit your club’s logo better.
