          What is a shorty swimsuit?.

          A shorty swimsuit or wetsuit is a more full-coverage option. They can be worn for water sports, extra sun protection or warmth. Meanwhile, shorty neoprene wetsuits provide more mobility in water sports when the water temperature allows it. Polyester swimsuits provide more flexibility.

          Are shorty swimsuits good for swimming and the beach?

          Yes, shorty polyester swimsuits are perfect for swimming and the beach. They provide more coverage and warmth for the upper body. Also, having arms covered during water sports protects the areas that tend to get the most sun damage.

          They’re great for a cruise or tropical vacation where your arms are suddenly bare in the intense sunshine. It’s easier to throw a towel over your legs for a while or park them in the shade. Long sleeves avoid the need to glop on so much 100 SPF sunscreen when you’re trying to have a good time on vacation.

          Where to buy a shorty swimsuit

          Shorty swimsuits aren’t as common in regular swimsuit stores. You can find a better selection of both neoprene and polyester swimsuits for women and shorty suits in surf shops, outdoors stores and online.

          What are Platinum Sun’s shorty swimsuits like?

          Platinum Sun’s shorty swimsuits combine the best features for certain conditions. They’re great to provide extra coverage or to stay warm in slightly cooler temperatures or water. The material is made from the same spandex-polyester blend as a rash guard but is thicker like a wetsuit.

          They range in size from XS to Large. The size chart ensures that customers select correctly the first time. For women, polyester and spandex swimsuits are forgiving because they are thick but stretch.

          Why do women love Platinum Sun’s shorty swimsuits?

          Ladies’ polyester swimsuits are common but achieving the right polyester and spandex blend to make suits feel great and last was our highest aspiration. These shorty swimsuits are fun and functional.

          Clearly, they stand out with their eye-catching designs. Not only are they unique, they provide a good shape on most figures. The fabric stretches four ways but is never see-through. In fact, it’s thicker than our regular rash guards. Full sublimation ensures that the design won’t stretch or fade.

          The features and detailing help our shorty swimsuits stand out for those acquainted with shorties and wetsuits. Meanwhile, those who are new to fuller-coverage suits are delighted with the details. Very long sleeves with thumbholes keep sleeves in place during swimming and watersport paddling.

          Not to mention the extra sun coverage. A rubbery silicone strip on the shorts keeps them in place, so they don’t turn into an uncomfortable bikini. A long and strong zipper offers the option to get as little or as much sun or air as you need. Getting in and out of the suit on the beach is easy and won’t have you become a spectacle.

          On the west coast and cooler areas, thick spandex and polyester swimsuits for women can allow for more beach days in the water with your family. Spandex and polyester swimsuits are the answer when neoprene is too warm or too high maintenance.
