How Do Regular People Try On Competitive Swimsuits?

The answer is….

Not very well.

Leave it to the pros may be the best advice.

Thanks to buzzfeed for producing the video and (a SwimSwam partner) for providing the competitive swimsuits for this fun little narrative.

We know it hurts to see regular people — aka non-swimmers — actually cut-up these high-end racing suits to get them on, but it makes a great point. These suits are for serious swimmers with special skill and knowledge in the ways of putting-on-the-skins.

NOTE: BuzzFeed’s next video should be Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps  providing pro pointers on how to shimmy into these suits and race with them on.

This video is cringeworthy.

This video is more insulting to competitive swimmers than funny…
