Taking on Swimathon: Kit suggestions

Swimathon, the world's largest fundraising swim, really is suitable for all. With individual distances ranging from 400 metres up to the new triple 5k and team distances of 1.5k or 5k, there's something for everyone. What's more by entering Swimathon, you can fundraise for two charities close to the nation's hearts - Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie.

If you're not able to swim during Swimathon weekend (29th to 31st March), you can join My Swimathon. My Swimathon enables you to take on your own challenge (from 22nd March to 7th April) at a pool that suits you. This can be an individual or team swim and you can still be a fundraiser. With Swimathon 2019 just over a couple of months away, we've pulled together a few of those kit essentials from swimwear to goggles and equipment.

Our women's fitness swimwear is typically available in sizes 6 to 24, depending on style, with D to H cup size options also available. We offer a range of back styles and leg heights with an array of features available including front lined, bust lined and tummy control. That way you can focus on what's important - your swimming! This Horizon Piped Sprintback for example not only features a sporty open sprintback for freedom of movement but a full front lining and high leg. Made in our sustainable Ecolast™ fabric, it's quick drying, durable and chlorine resistant. Browse women's swimwear here.

Our men's swimwear comes in a range of sizes (S to XXXL or 28" to 40") and styles. Designed for durability, comfort and optimum performance whether you select hip racer, jammer or racer swim shorts. Our higher leg hip racers are great for unrestricted leg movement with longer jammers preventing chaffing. These Arizona Jett Jammers not only look the part but mould to your body for minimum drag and maximum speed. Browse men's swimwear here.


Children can make a splash with our Kids (up to 6 years) and Junior (size 6-14) collections. Our swimwear includes swimsuits and tankinis for girls with shorts, jammers and trunks for boys. The Junior Wunderlust Rowleeback with its floral design has narrow straps for enhanced freedom of movement in the water. Made from our ultra-soft and chlorine resistant Hydrolife™ fabric, children won't want to get out of the pool. Or why not become a superhero in the Junior Boys Aquaman Jammer Zoggs. These jammers mould to the contours of the body to significantly reduce drag for ultimate performance.
