10-6-14 : Monday was the date for the swimming competition of the 2014 Tampa Senior Games.
I competed in (4) of the (5) events : 50 Free, 50 Fly, 50 Back and 100 IM. The swimsuit I race in the the SKINZ Speedo style M64. This year my suit was a custom swimsuit made by SKINZ and was made in the Flag Collage fabric 3121. This competition suit by SKINZ has a drawstring so it stays in in all aspects of the race including the dive start.
Bodysuits are no longer made just for women. They are not just for super hero costumes. Now men wear them to the gym, dance class, and underlayment for ski and snowboard attire and to ward off the harmful effects of the sun and jellyfish while playing in the ocean.
SKINZ makes bodysuits for men with male comfort in mind. Bodysuits provide a nice shape and silhouette. Men wear them for practical reasons too. Military men, fire men, police officers, athletes, and construction men all wear our bodysuits for compression and support.
Of course they make great costume foundations too. Are you are looking for fantasy unitards and Zentai style body suits? You can order yours in ANY fabric SKINZ has in inventory. Spiderman ? Silver Surfer ? Batman ? Is there a super hero in you ? Check out out all of our Men’s Bodysuits – Click Here
John B. of Pinole, CA recently purchased two mens bikini swimsuits by SKINZ. One of the suits is the Super Low Half Back Bikini for men in a Tiger poly/spandex print. This fabric is made with what is called a paper print process. The print is on paper and a heat process similar to heat transfer printing marries the print to the tricot/poly/spandex base cloth. The result is a stunning razor sharp print in High Definition. Tricot fabric have true 4-way stretch.

SKINZ has been making rash guards for men and women since it’s days as a supplier of lycra windsurfing shorts. If you are not familiar with what a rash guard is : Rash Guards were first developed by surfers to eliminate the chafing (caused by wetsuits) under the arms and around the neck. Coincidentally they do provide extra thermal warmth by reducing the flow of water inside the wetsuit (stabilizing warm water). The “Original” design is also used for use as an summer shield against the harmful effects of too much sun and abrasions from your surfboard. Reversed seams for smoothness and dolman sleeves for freedom of movement are components of a quality rash guard.
The use of nylon and lycra creates a garment that is lightweight, quick drying, flexible, durable, naturally antibacterial and water wicking. SKINZ produces several styles of rash guards. The original fits more loosely for above water watersports like windsurfing, kiteboarding, kayaking, wakeboarding and stand up paddle boarding. The slimmer and more snug fitting versions are for surfing, swimming, body surfing and diving. SKINZ is also making microfiber versions to wear as a base layer under snow boarding and skiing wear.
OK. I admit it. Making underwear was my idea. I like the support and feel on lycra shorts under cargo shorts and so I had a few pairs of our original lycra shorts (SH5) made in cotton/lycra. They felt great. Eventually, one of our designers (Angelique) developed a pattern for a seamless front, mens lycra short. We began calling it the (NFS). NO FRONT CENTER SEAM. Finally, comfortable bike length underwear for men. The most comfortable underwear you will ever wear. No center seam to divide your package. Smooth and seamless front. That style code is the M50. We have since expanded the underwear line to include a boxer (A17) and a really low cut boxer (M61). We now offer all three styles in value 3-packs.
Ever wonder what swimsuits are so much more $ than underwear ? The cost is in the quality and fabrication. Swimsuits have to stand up to saltwater, sunshine, Chlorine and suntan oils, all of which work to destroy the swimsuit. Swimsuits are small and the fabric is slippery, which makes sewing them a challenge.
Each swimsuit requires at least (3) different machines : the serger, the straight stitch and the zig-zag. Some require a 4th machine, the double needle top stitch. Tricot nylon/lycra fabric, silicone protected rubber, special stretch thread and lining are also required for each suit. Options include ornaments, rhinestone connectors and plated tri-rings. Our suits are sewn in Clearwater, Florida. We are proud to say we are made in the USA!
