Depending on your local pool policy or the activity you are doing, a range of other types of clothing may be worn. This can include:

  • Fitted t-shirt or leggings under swimwear

It is also important to make sure pieces of clothing can not get stuck in filters or other parts of a pool, which makes lycra a good material to wear.

Other clothing which shouldn’t be worn includes:

  • Leggings over swimwear
  • Baggy t-shirt and trousers
  • Tracksuits or jogging bottoms
  • Outdoor shorts or trousers
  • Jeans
