A swimming vest can help make sure you’re seen

Some ocean swim events may require the wearing of a lycra swimming vest for safety or sponsorship purposes.

Wearing a swim vest for the first time may feel restrictive, and you might feel a little more resistance when you swim.

Choosing and fitting a swimming vest

  • When choosing a vest size always ask for a size or two smaller than you would usually wear so it fits nice a snug.
  • If you still need to tighten it try gathering the loose material together and tying a knot in the back.
