Speedo Chlorine Resistant Women’s Swimwear Often for Less

Speedo is a name many of us have worn at one point in our lives or another. It is a brand we have come to trust and rely on for continued pool swimming and a cut we can trust to be made for motion!

Sometimes it might seem pricey, yet as it turns out we can find great prices on Speedo Swimwear both at Speedo’s site and at Swim Shop.

If you need more bust support in your swimwear, check out our bra sized underwire Speedo and Wire Free Zoggs Swimwear post.

Here is a brief comparison of some Women’s Speedo Swimwear at Two Stores

The Sizing Differences

The main difference between these two stores is Speedo uses swimwear sizes and Swim Shop uses the measurement our busts at their fullest. With this in mind:

Speedo swimwear seems to go up to size 3X, 24 as well as 16L and 18L on their Plus Size Swimwear at Speedo page.

They also have a contouring swimwear line, which you can read about on our Speedo’s New Sculpture Swimwear line post. Their Speedo’s Sculpture Swimwear currently shows sizes up to 22.

If you use this Women’s Speedo at Swim Shop link you can find their swimwear in, your bust at its fullest, measurements of 24” to 44” Now here is a brief price comparison of these two stores!

Speedo Women’s Swimwear Prices at Speedo and Swim Shop

Generally, the full prices at:
  • Speedo on regular tank style women’s swimsuits tend to be around $68 to $88, in the plus size department. They do have sale styles too.
  • At Swim Shop the women’s full priced tank swimwear tend to have been under $50 at full price, 
  • which they never seem to be, and are offered at sale prices quite often under $30 For instance:

Here is one of Speedo’s Sculpture swimsuits, available in sizes 8 to 18 at Speedo for $78.

10/2016 Update: I removed the picture links examples of the comparable Speedo styles available for less at Swim Shop. They still have an excellent selection of full figure women's Speedo Swimwear there. I encourage you to take this Plus Size Speedo Swimwear at Swim Shop link and check them out!

Swim Shop had a Speedo Sculpture Swimsuit of similar Speedo swimsuit for $30 at this original post's date. design currently available at Swim Shop.

Swim Shop uses a different sizing method: Bust measurement at its fullest, in inches: 34”, 36”, 38” and 44”.

Or Speedo’s Watergem in solid black, $78 in sizes 8 to 22. It is $31.20 in blue, but down to size 18

That was $28 at Swim Shop at the date of this original post and available in solid black, in sizes 34” to 44”, you bust measurement at its fullest.

Speedo Swimwear is not always less at Swim Shop, mostly because Speedo has sale styles too!

We can enjoy their Sculpture Crystalshine Solid Contour back in sizes 16 to 22 for just $33.60 in this version pictured below or solid black with a contrast, (looks lilac to me), belt and straps.

This is just a picture of it in its blue/pink version at Speedo. You can find it using Speedo’s Sculpture Swimwear link.

Swim Shop had this in its periwinkle / orange color you can find it for $47, in sizes 34” to 44”.

So Swim Shop is not always the least expensive, but if you are looking for excellent prices on Speedo and other chlorine resistant swimwear, (such as Zoggs, perhaps more!), it is well worth browsing!

Naturally, if you are going to comparison shop Speed Swimwear, you might want to browse Amazon as well. They have plenty!

More on this later…
