How To Choose A Technical Swimsuit

What is a Technical Suit?

Technical suits are currently categorized primarily by the type of seam they are constructed with. The removal of traditional seams makes these suits more like a second skin, less likely to have bumps and threads that would create resistance in the water.  Bonded seams are fused by heat and pressure; they are lighter weight and provide a smoother surface.

Fabric type also influences tiers of tech suits, affecting primarily price. Knit fabrics have tiny loops like a braid and have superior stretch than woven fabrics because they are made from one continuous thread. Woven fabrics are made up of microscopic criss crosses that you could see with a magnifying glass. Woven fabrics will also stretch but only in one direction.
