I could easily swim a mile in any one of these except maybe the blue one.

Re: Suitable Swim Dresses

I go to the pool at least twice a week & can't imagine ever getting in the water wearing one of those. I would get stared at!!

They look most impractical & I feel they would billow out when I was swimming.

They are pretty though.

Absolutely Ruthio.....They might be alright for sitting round the pool with a G&T in your hand, but you need a pair of these for a serious swim.....

Re: Suitable Swim Dresses

Most of my swimming is done in the wild. While I do swim at the pool at the gym, the chlorine irritates my hair and skin so lake and river swimming is my preference

Re: Suitable Swim Dresses

I like them .... does it mean it's okay to go swimming in shorts and strappy t-shirts now then? A boob tube? Or vest top?

It's just another con to part women from their money and call it swim wear.

Re: Suitable Swim Dresses

For myself, these are the type of swim suites that are perfect for covering up areas that you donít particularly like being exposed. If they arenít your style, then by all means pass on them. Iím not selling them so donít particularly care either way. Lol
