Benefits of One-Piece Swimwear with Sleeves

No matter what time of year it is, a long-sleeve one-piece swimsuit is a staple wardrobe item to have on hand for all your indoor and outdoor aquatic activities. Whether you’re heading to the ocean or the pool at your local gym, here are a few of the reasons why more and more women are opting for long-sleeve swimwear in Australia:

  • They’re highly convenient. A long-sleeve swimsuit is a piece of clothing that protects your arms from the sun, so you won’t have to worry about keeping up with extra cover-ups while you’re outside. It doesn’t have fiddly straps or clasps to fuss over, and you won’t have to worry about applying sunscreen to your arms, back, or tummy. Your long-sleeve swimsuit is the simplest kind of swimwear that you can buy, and it’s guaranteed to make your life a little easier.
  • They’re ideal for water sports. If you love water activities, such as kayaking and snorkelling, then you need a long-sleeve swimsuit. During these activities, you’ll likely spend long periods in direct sunlight (and surrounded by reflective water, making your UV exposure even worse). It’s difficult to reapply sunscreen as often as you should, especially when you’re constantly in the water. Eliminate the sunburn with long-sleeve one-piece swimwear.
  • They look great. A long-sleeve or cap-sleeve swimsuit has a fun, stylish appearance. If you prefer more coverage but still want a fashionable look, a colourful swimsuit with sleeves is the way to go. These suits come in all colours and in styles to suit everyone, regardless of age or personal style. Enjoy sporting your surfer girl look, whether or not you’ll be hitting the waves.

Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Regular or Long-Sleeve Swimwear

Whether you’re shopping for a bikini, a long-sleeve one-piece, or something in between, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure that you find the perfect swimsuit. Shopping for swimwear is notoriously stressful, but you can remove the stress and find your perfect suit by avoiding these common mistakes:

  • Choosing the wrong size. It’s vital that your swimsuit fits correctly–you don’t want to put up with a suit that is too large or too small. One of the most common mistakes that people make is purchasing swimwear in the size that they want to be rather than the size that they are. Remember that different brands have different size ranges, so it doesn’t matter which size is listed on the label. Check your measurements with the size chart provided, and use this information to choose a size. Keep in mind that not everyone is the same size on the top and bottom, so consider these components two separate pieces when deciding which sizes to order.
  • Not considering your body type. Of course, you can and should wear any swimsuit that makes you feel good. However, if you want to look your best on the beach, then you can choose a swimsuit that flatters the body you have. Consider how to showcase your best features and conceal others, and think about which colours will suit you best. For example, if you have a larger top, then you might want to steer clear of white. On the other hand, if you want to give your bust a boost, keep in mind that black may minimise it even more. You can also consider your skin tone and eye colour to choose a colour that will highlight your best features.
  • Choosing swimwear based on price. Your budget matters and likely factors into all the purchases that you make. However, try not to make the mistake of purchasing a swimsuit just because it’s cheap. A high-quality swimsuit will last longer and perform better, season after season and wash after wash. Look for a well-designed and well-made piece that features quality fabrics–bonus points for eco-friendly and sun-protective materials.
