Choosing a swimsuit should be based on two criteria: your level of practice and the swimming benefits you are looking for. First step is to define the type of swimmer you are, meaning your level and the frequency at which you go swimming.
At Nabaiji we identify 3 segments:

Beginner

You are a beginner swimmer if you’re just beginning to swim and have just started learning swimming techniques for 1 or 2 strokes.

A beginner swimmer's first priority is to be comfortable in his or her practice.

Intermediate

You are an intermediate swimmer if you are already comfortable in the water and have learnt 2 to 4 strokes.

An experienced swimmer swims for muscle development and/or to improve his/her technique.

Advanced

You are an advanced swimmer if you are well familiar with the aquatic world and masters the 4 strokes.

An expert swimmer performs swimming sessions designed to improve his/her physical condition and performance.

Depending on how often you swim, the fabric of the swimsuit will be different.

The fabric of our swimsuits for beginners swimmers are made of elastane yarn and guarantee up to 100 hours of practice without loss of elasticity.

The fabric of our swimsuits for intermediate and advanced swimmers are made of polyester or elastolefin yarns. They guarantee you up to 200 hours of practice without loss of elasticity. To find those swimsuits, look out for products labelled with AQUARESIST certification. They are tested under repeated cyclical loading in a pool of chlorinated water for at least 200 hours. No deterioration of elastic strength was observed throughout the test. Unlike a standard swimming product, the product retains its shape. They are guaranteed against the damaging effects of chlorine for their lifetime and will keep their elasticity.
