This blog for Bohn Swimwear in the UK is a platform for us to communicate with you our philosophy on swimwear and swimming. In short we are passionate about giving women something else to wear in the water, other than conventional bikinis and one piece swimsuits, that may be too revealing.
Swimming is great exercise for all ages, body types and fitness levels and Bohn Swimwear was created to give women a range of swimwear separates that allows them to pick the coverage they need to make themselves feel confident enough to get in the water. Confident that you are covered for modesty, or protection from the sun. Confident that you can swim with your kids, or train in swimwear designed for the pool and the beach and designed for your shape.
Bohn Swimwear, is designed in the UK by me, Sarah Bohn and sold around the world. In UK Size 8 to 24 the range is manufactured in a swimwear fabric that is chlorine resistant, so will last in the chlorinated pools of the UK. The fabric also has a UPF 50+ protection from the sun, making it ideal for outdoors swimming. Other qualities include quick drying and it absorbs less water than clothing fabrics, so will keep you warmer if you are in and out of the water (like mums and swim teacher so often are).
The reasons that women wear Bohn Swimwear are varied. I wear it as I want to keep my bottom and thighs covered while I enjoy the water with my daughter. Chasing her around the baby pools when she was little, or now she is older we have fun days at the water slide parks on holiday (see pic), I am not worrying about my swimwear, I’m enjoying our time together.
Other women wear it, for sun protection, modesty, coverage, religious reasons, for training, for holidays, for teaching in, for hydrotherapy sessions, to cover scares. The list is almost endless.
