If you want to talk about making the most out of flat chests, long torsos, and short legs in lap swimming, ask me anything.
This one’s for the shortscapes of swim.
Now, I’m no professional swimmer. But as a regular lap swimmer, an aerodynamic one piece is a must. However, looking for this simple piece of garment has been one of the most troublesome hunts I’ve been on considering most American girls have a chest and a two out of three leg to torso body proportion. So after numerous runs around the city from shop to shop, informative complaints to every swimwear sales associate encountered, and email blasts to all swimwear companies that came to mind, I got to the bottom of it. So you don’t have to. All it takes is a sleek one piece with bra pads to oomph the bust, high leg height to elongate the leg length, and a nice simple body without any of that tacky pattern or frilly nonsense attached to give it a long lean look and you're good to go. And for all those reasons, this color blocked swimsuit by none other than Speedo (who apparently seemed to be the only ones to hear my dilemma from afar) takes home the trophy, as they provided me with exactly what I needed. This swimsuit, along with all options below feature a built in or removable hydro bra paired with either a "contemporary" or "racer" leg height that gives the legs more exposure provided its higher cut. In addition, color blocking, when done right, has the power to distract the eye from assessing the start and end of an object, ie. the torso in this case.
And now you can look and feel good even during your casual lap swim sessions alone. Problem? So solved.
