Ladies Swim Caps
Competition styled caps help streamline the body by reducing the amount of drag the head produces. No matter the length of hair, race day inspired caps can help reduce resistance and allow you to slice through the water with ease. For the best streamlined effect, look for swim caps that lie close to the head. Silicone is a favorite choice among high level athletes. The material is able to stretch over various head sizes and fits without bunching. Silicone is a great choice for swimmers with long or thick hair. The material is able to contain a large amount of hair without pulling, snagging or damaging the delicate locks. Latex and rubber caps are also popular choices for training sessions and race days.
If you want to hold back your hair and keep your head protected, but aren't too overly concerned with a streamlined fit, then there are many recreational women's swim cap styles available for you. Great for a day lounging at the pool or for an aqua aerobics class, lycra caps can help keep hair up and out of your face. While the material is permeable and will get your hair wet, many swimmers love the comfortable, silky material against their scalp. Lycra's comfortable fit won't snag delicate hairs and is able to protect the head from harmful UV rays.
Outdoor & Open Water Caps
Die hard open water enthusiasts need all the help they can get from the water's conditions. Caps made from warm, insulating materials can help you preserve and control your body's precious warmth. If you often swim in chilly waters, look for caps made from thick materials, such as neoprene. This material is able to lock in heat and keep your head temperature regulated in most any environment.
