This is Maru’s latest thin strap, aqua sport suit. And, as with the Tyr Hurricane, it hasn’t been designed for those who like subtle colour schemes.
Its bright, funky kaleidoscope pattern might not be to everyone’s liking, but if you love your swimsuits loud, then this is definitely a suit to take a closer look at.
There are two design points on this suit to bear in mind, though: the high-cut leg and the thin straps. If you like your suits high cut, then great; if not, this isn’t the suit for you.
Equally, the thin straps are considered by some to be great for training in because they never impede shoulder movement or chafe the skin.
It’s often down to personal taste but, for this 220 swimmer, the straps were just too thin. Consequently, the suit lacked enough support around the bust, chest and shoulders.
It may be a great suit to be seen in on the poolside, but we don’t think it’s a great choice for putting in the high mileage.
