What to look for in a bathing suitIf you think that shopping for a bathing suit is like shopping for any other item of apparel, think again.
There are many things to consider when looking for a new swimsuit. The first thing to think about is the style of the shorts. Boardshorts, as their name suggests, were intended to be used by surfers who wanted to have full control over their movements on their boards. You can use them for suring, but they also are a good option for swimming, offering high UV protection.
Swim trunks are boxier and shorter than board shorts. They are the most leisurely of the swimming apparel choices and best suited for a day at the beach or pool. Swim trunks can be loose or tightly fitting.
Another option is a swim brief. Swim briefs are the standard piece of apparel for competitive divers and water polo athletes. They reduce the amount that water drags on an athlete.
