I’ve not gone in the water yet but I’m happy that I’ll look fine paddle boarding in sunny CO and not have to worry about sunburn.
I have not used the slipins yet. Planning on SUP Waiting for my board. I do not want to use it in pool,I don’t think chlorine will be good for it.
Not only are these suits extra flattering, they’re also extra functional! They’re so easy to get on and off and the fact that they provide modesty (can’t see through them) all the better. They’re cute alone but also fantastic under a scuba wetsuit - which, btw, is a WAY less exhausting feat when you’re donin’ a slipins suit as your base layer. These things also provide UV 50+ protection so the only place I have to worry about applying sunscreen is on my face and neck. Aaand, I’m way less panicky about moon jellies when I’m snorkeling because I know I have a layer of protection. Slipins are also made in the USA! Win Win Win! Oh! And another huge plus is that they’re machine washable and dryable. Yesss! If you’re on the fence about buying one of these, get off it and get into a slipin. You’ll only wish you’d done it sooner!
I LOVE the way it fits. It is exactly what I wanted.
Haven’t used this one yet, but got it to replace my old one. Love the am/footholes-keeps it secure for open water swimming. It is a thin skin, so for me, I need to wear a suit underneath for support.
It fits perfectly and I love the vibrant colour.
I do a lot of open water swimming and these togs offer the best sun protection. They’re a great fit so no drag. I’ve had a lot of comments from my swim group and have no doubt they will start wearing these too. I will definitely purchase again, perhaps try out a new pattern.
At 5'6" & 140 pounds, the medium fits perfectly. I love the fit, feel and especially the pattern. What a great idea to wear swimming in cooler water, snorkeling and scuba diving. I haven't tried it yet with a wetsuit, but hope to soon! Thank you! P.S. I'd also love to see an older woman model.
Like all my other Slipins I love this new Abalone. It is gorgeous and pops on the body. Truly love each of mine and can’t decide which I like most.
Ordered size small. Height 5’3”, weight 116. The suit is a little big; will order an XP’s next time. Great quality fabric, nice foot stirrup that stays put!
