What to wear for water sports this summer In Austria.

May 20, 2020

We’ve been talking a lot about summer in Austria and dreamy lakes lately, which brings us to our quest of what to wear for water sports this summer.

Because there is more to summer than just lying in the sun, and once at the Austrian lakes, you will surely feel like sailing, windsurfing, water skiing or stand up paddling. So you don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions, right? You will need to find swimsuits that are not only stylish but also comfortable and safe. With the right swimwear, you are able to concentrate on your sport and not to be distracting if everything is ok with your bikini top or if the bikini bottom is still there.

You need to be free to move and focus on your performance. Luckily, there are plenty of fabulous options to wear this summer. In fact, we found such beautiful swimwear for water sports that you will want to wear them even if you’re planning on just sunbathing all summer!

One-piece swimsuits

Go for bold neon swimwear. Otherwise, pastel colours are also on-trend. One-piece swimsuits, for obvious reasons, are definitely what you should wear for water sports. And they’re also flattering, for every body-type. 

Retro bikinis

If you prefer two-piece swimwear, choose the ones that have bikini bottoms with high rise silhouettes and sporty tops. Small string bikinis won’t do it for water sports. As for patterns, florals and animal prints are going to be big this summer.

Fashionable wetsuits

For high-speed sports like waterski and wakeboard, wear Cynthia Rowley wetsuits. The American surf-leisure brand makes chic wetsuits with geometrical patterns and beautiful colour combinations. Additionally, Rowley’s wetsuits are sustainable, made in recycled materials and with green technology. Still thinking about what to wear this summer at the lake?

What to wear this summer when on a boat

If you’re spending the day on a sailing boat, make sure to bring along two swimwear, and a kaftan or a t-shirt with long sleeves and a hat to help protect your skin against overexposure to the sun.
