Are one-piece or two-piece swim suits better, or does it matter?

Stick with the Norm

Train and race in a one-piece swim suit. If you are wearing more than one suit anyway, there is no point in having a two-piece swim suit. The bottoms will create problems. They sit low on the hip and create the wrong kind of drag, as they are likely to come down when diving or pushing off.

Two-piece athletic swim suits are useful when teaching swim lessons or working at an ocean or lake as an instructor, lifeguard, or coach.
