HOW TO CHOOSE THE MATERIAL OF YOUR SWIM CAP
Made of a fabric similar to swimsuits, easy to put on, without pulling at your hair. Finishing seams around the head to ensure that the cap remains in place.
A comfortable mesh cap. It is coated with a layer of silicone that reduces water ingress, limits elasticity and ensures a close fit.
Silicone is less comfortable but highly elastic to guarantee a close fit and prevent water from leaking into the cap.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER TYPES OF SWIM CAPS?
There are several alternatives to standard swim caps that meet everyone's needs:
- brush caps: made of very stretchy mesh.
- waffle stitch caps: made of latex, can be put on without pulling at your hair.
- volume or extra volume caps: the shape of these silicone caps allows more room for voluminous hair.
- moulded or shell swim caps: these silicone caps are made for competitive swimming.
- neoprene caps: perfect for open-water swimming!
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE OF SWIM CAP
S, M, L, one size… which is the right size for me?
The choice is quite simple: fabric and coated mesh caps are available in different sizes (S, M, L), while silicone caps are available in only one size, because they are very stretchy.
To choose the right size, follow our short guide to head sizes:
- XS: 50-52 cm. (available in the range for babies)
- S: 53-56 cm.
- M: 56-59 cm.
- L: 59-62 cm.
- One size: 53 to 62 cm.
HOW TO PUT YOUR SWIM CAP ON
Did you know? Swim caps must be worn the right way round!
Swim caps have a central band from the front to the rear. The line of the fold of silicone caps (visible when the cap is flat) follows the same direction as the preceding caps.
Then join your hands and put them inside the cap. Stretch out your hands and fingers to create enough space to put the cap on.
At the front, the cap must about one finger above your eye brows.
WHY WEAR A SWIM CAP?
For two reasons.
First, wearing a swim cap protects the place where you are swimming. By retaining your hair, the cap protects the quality of the water and equipment, by protecting the hygiene of the pool or water course.
Second, caps also protect you! Caps protect your hair against the harm caused by water, chlorine (or other treatments) and salt (or other pollutants).
