Can you wear a regular bathing suit while pregnant?

If you aren’t that concerned about the softer belly (and seriously — you are pregnant, yay!), then just wear a normal bikini. Be sure to actually try on your old tops before dashing off for a weekend in the sun – there’s a good chance that you’ll need a larger cup size or a more supportive style.

How tight should a lap swimsuit be?

Bunching at the seams or tightness and pulling at the straps and openings usually indicates an incorrect size. You should be able to move freely without causing the neck or leg openings of the suit to stretch.

Do bathing suits stretch over time?

Yes, that bikini was super cute in the days of yore, but I’ve got news for you: Swimsuits are made of elastic, and elastic stretches out over time, with multiple wears. If you have a go-to piece you’re always sporting, it may be time to say goodbye to it and hello to something new.

How many laps should I swim as a beginner?

20 to 30 laps

Do I need a swim cap to swim laps?

Yes! The Swimtastic Squad strongly suggest using a swim cap at any age, kids through adults. It not only helps your swimmer, but it also helps keep the pool drains, filters, and pumps clear of hair. Plus, they look cool, and helps make your swimmer look and feel like an official competitive swimmer.
