You could be quite easily mistaken for a character from Baywatch wearing this eye-catching red number, but don’t let that put you off. This is a good suit at a competitive price, which looks the part and performs well in the water.
However, it might be worth trying it for size before deciding if it’s the one for you because there’s not a great deal of stretch, which will obviously affect how it fits.
What it loses in comfort value there, though, it almost regains with its fully-lined front. It’s one of only two suits on test to be fully lined along the front of the suit, so has a softer feel against the skin.
The strap system is sturdy and well-designed and at no point rubbed or chafed. For those doing a lot of swimming outdoors, this suit could also be a good option because it guarantees excellent protection from UV rays. Furthermore, it has a high chlorine resistance and is quick drying, so picks up points for being long-lasting.
