These days you're more likely to find Lycra blends such as "Xtra Life Lycra" which will stand up to the harmful effects of chlorine much better than pure Lycra swimsuits. All Lycra swimwear on our website is Xtra Life Lycra or some derivative of that. The benefits of Xtra Life Lycra are that it is soft and luxurious, by far the most comfortable swimwear fabric. Generally, it will be cheaper too. A great choice for leisure swimmers and those who like an occasional dip.
