Friends, I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite things to do after any workout is to go for a swim. Whether I’m in the Pilates studio, going for a run, lifting weights in the gym or dabbling in yoga, I love going from a good sweat to a swim. So I’m always on the hunt for activewear you can swim in.

Luckily for me, activewear labels have finally heard my cries (and answered my prayers) to finally start creating clothing lines that can withstand everything from sweet to salt water. Brands like Nimble, P.E Nation, Rip Curl and more have started to design active wear like sports bras, shorts, leggings and crop tops that you can both swim and work out in.

And, as it turns out, going for a quick cold dip after exercising is actually great for enhancing recovery time. The coldness causes your blood vessels to constrict, which can reduce blood flow to the area and minimise inflammation.

So if you’re like me, I’ve got even better news for you. I’ve created a running list of the best sweat-to-swim activewear you can currently buy in Australia. You’re welcome!

The Best Sweat To Swim Activewear in Australia

Nimble Sweat to Splash Cruiser Bra, Racerback Bra and Bike Short

Nimble Activewear makes some seriously beautiful (and versatile) activewear. In particular, we were excited about their ‘Sweat to Splash’. It was made for those mornings where you wanna work out followed by a dip in the pool or beach, no change room required. Each piece in the range was designed to handle sweat, salt and chlorine, so you can confidently dive in without worrying about ruining your favourite workout ‘fit. The collection currently consists of shorts, sports bras, onesies, and a splash-proof body bag.

You can check out the full collection here.

Active Truth

Okay, so we’ve been a little cheeky here and made our own set from Active Truth’s epic range. Here we have the Adjustable Bikini Top that looks like it would be perfect for low-impact exercises and swims, and the classic Bike Shorts. While the shorts aren’t designated swimwear, they’d still do the job. Just make sure that if you do swim in chlorine or salt water you rinse them thoroughly in fresh water post-dip.

Lorna Jane Sprint to Splash Sports Bra and Shorts
