Why are there special wetsuits for swimming?

Swimming is of course an official sport, but it is not only practiced in swimming pools. For example, we also see more and more people going swimming in open water. One disadvantage, however, is that the water is cold. That is why there are special wetsuits developed for swimming that keep your body at the right temperature.

In addition, these types of swimsuits can also benefit performance, as some suits allow you to be more streamlined. Furthermore, there are a few things to consider when choosing a suitable swimming wetsuit. We would like to tell you more about them below.

What should you consider when choosing a wetsuit for swimming?

Would you like to swim in a wetsuit? Then it is important to consider a number of factors. This is because not all wetsuits are the same, which is why it is useful to know what to look for. After all, this way you can be sure to find a suitable swimming wetsuit for your swimming adventures.


A wetsuit, no matter what you plan to use it for, should always fit your body properly. After all, is this not the case? Then you will be less streamlined in the water, as some parts will be loose.

In addition, you may not feel completely comfortable in the suit, which already makes you feel less comfortable going into the water. This can all affect your performance in the water. Therefore, always swim in a wetsuit that fits well and in which you feel comfortable.


Usually you use a wetsuit for swimming in open water. The temperature of the water outside is usually not very warm and pleasant. Hence, it is wise to put on a wetsuit in such cases.

However, it is important that the wetsuit actually protects you from the low temperatures of the water. For this, the thickness of the wetsuit must be considered. So the thickness of a wetsuit depends on the temperature of the water. But which thickness fits which temperature? We have prepared a general list for you:

Between 10 and 17°C: 4/2 mm

Between 17 and 20°C: 2/2 mm

Between 20 and 25°C: wetsuit not necessarily needed

Are you going to swim in a wetsuit? Then always consider the temperature of the water. In addition, it is also important that you do not wear a wetsuit that is too thick, as this can impair freedom of movement.


Swimming in a wetsuit should, of course, be comfortable. Hence, it is also smart to look at the material of the swimsuit. All swimming wetsuits are made of neoprene. However, there are some models that are made of an improved neoprene, namely the glide skin neoprene.

This fabric feels softer to the body, making you a little more comfortable in your suit. In addition, the fabric creates less resistance in the water, allowing you to glide more smoothly through the water. In addition to the fabric of the wetsuit, you also have to deal with the seams. The seams can be applied in two different ways, stitched or glued.

A stitched seam is more visible on the suit and is not completely waterproof. In addition, glued ones are virtually invisible and are also completely waterproof. So a wetsuit with glued seams is ideal for when you want to swim long distances.


The size of a wetsuit should be right to ensure that it fits well and is comfortable. However, it can ever be difficult to determine which size is the right one. Sometimes you may just need a size larger or smaller than you are normally used to. So keep this in mind.

In addition, different sizes are available for women, men and children. For example, men need a different model than women. For example, women's wetsuits are a little wider at the chest and hips and narrower at the waist, and those for men are a little wider at the shoulders and narrower at the hips.


When choosing a wetsuit for swimming, price also plays a big role. For example, you may not want to spend a lot of money on a wetsuit because you only use it a few times a year anyway. Or on the contrary, you need an expensive wetsuit because you are going to swim competitions, for example.

Whatever your needs and budget, at Watersports4fun you will find your new wetsuit for swimming. Because swimming in a wetsuit is not only good for your body, but also for your performance.

Swimming safely in a wetsuit

A wetsuit is used mainly when you swim in open water. It is therefore important that you do so safely. Therefore, there are a things to consider when swimming in open water.

Before you go swimming anywhere in open water, it is advisable to check the bathing water quality. This is because in the summer it is common to find (bad) bacteria in a certain area. A negative swimming advice is therefore given on these laths.

Water outdoors is often colder than in a pool. To properly protect yourself from the cold, a wetsuit is essential. This way you maintain body temperature and prevent hypothermia and cramping. It is also advisable to go with several people, since there is no supervision in the form of a lifeguard.

Swimming in a wetsuit does offer another big advantage, namely the extra buoyancy. Thanks to the use of neoprene, you stay afloat better, so you also experience less resistance from the water.
