These picks are built for playing hard all summer.
If your workout plans involve water, you’re going to need a sport swimsuit that stays in place and allows you to move freely. Since different water sports (SUP, surfing, snorkeling, or logging serious laps) have unique challenges, choosing the right swimsuit can be difficult. While surfers may want extra coverage to protect from UV rays, for example, someone doing SUP may require a suit that lets them move their arms freely for perfect form. Here, the best sport swimsuits for the water workout of your choice.
