Low waist swimwear
What is a low waist?
A Low Waist, also called 14 cm briefs, is a swimsuit model that sits between a swim slip and a boxer. The Low waist gives the freedom of movement of a swim slip and the comfort of a swim boxer. You can see this well in for example this swimsuit. The Low waists are perfect for swimming training, but you can of course also swim during a recreational day or put on a nice beach day.
What is the difference with other swimwear models?
Low waist says it all; low waist. The sides of a Low waist are considerably wider than with normal swim briefs. The Low waist therefore gives a bit more coverage than a swim slip, but because the lowwaist has a leg cut in the groin, your legs have the freedom of movement that you are used to from a swim slip. You can see that well at this low waist from Speedo.
What are the advantages
- Optimal freedom of movement
- Flexible fabric
- Slightly more compression on the hips because there is more dust
What are the disadvantages
- The sizes often go up to size D5 (Medium)
