If you want to do more than just lie on the beach this summer, we’ve this is the active-swimwear edit for you.
Want to stay cool while you work up a sweat? Swimming might be the exercise for you. Low-impact but high-intensity, it’s a full body workout that’s guaranteed to give you toned limbs and also get your heart pumping. There are also some great charity swims you can sign up to – like the upcoming Can Too ocean swims, which will help you find your swim-tribe and help raise money for this very worthy cause.
The only downside? Finding a sporty swimsuit that stays put when you’re perfecting your backstroke, but looks good too. Oh, and that’s before you even delve into the eternal joy that is shopping for a cossie that makes you feel fab. So to help, we’ve rounded up five of the freshest active swim styles that balance sporty with style in equal measure.
What: P.E Nation x Speedo Tetra onepiece ($125 at P.E Nation)
Why: Not only does this catsuit look good but Speedo’s exclusive Eco Endurance+ fabric is made of 100% recycled yarn made from PET bottles, and it’s also breathable, UV protective, chlorine and sweat resistant.
What: Duskii Ocean Action Top ($109, at Duskii) and Ocean brief ($79, at Duskii)
Why: Made from 80% neoprene, this sleek bikini was designed with action in mind. The crop-top shape won’t budge when you’re catching those waves, either.
What: Dion Lee Perf bodysuit ($249, at Dion Lee)
Why: The Australian designer has recently teamed up with retailer Carbon38 for his first foray into activewear, and we’re thoroughly impressed with the results. His signature laser-cut netting rakes this simple maillot from simple to something that’s sure to turn heads at the pool.
What: Vaara Vaughn two-piece ($280, at Stylerunner)
Why: The high-waisted briefs hold it all in, but look good doing so. Plus, red goes faster – right?
What: Lululemon Swell-Seeker paddlesuit ($139, at lululemon)
Why: The long back-sip makes this a cinch to get in (and out) of, and the perforated panels adds extra ventilation for when you’re working up a sweat – on sea, or on a SUP.
