What are full body or stinger swimsuits?
Stinger Swimsuits are full body long sleeves and long legs swimsuits, used for all swimming activities and/or diving in water temperatures above 25 °C (77 °F). Traditionally these swimsuits were made from swimwear materials such as Spandex or Lycra and provide little thermal protection, but do protect the skin from jellyfish stings, abrasion and sunburn. However the new suits are much more superior in fabric quality and offer more protection features. These kind of stinger swimsuits are also known as 'dive skins'.
Why use a full body stinger swimsuit?
The original stinger swimsuit was created to provide protection against jellyfish stings, hence the name ‘stinger suit’. However with the discovery of the sun UV radiation effect on skin and the damage it can cause, these suits became the corner stone for the campaign to educate people about the danger of sun bathing and how to protect the skin by using sunscreen and wearing sun protection clothing. These swimsuits not only provide protection against jellyfish stingers and sea lice, it can also protect against the sun harmful UVA and UVB radiation which ultimately causes skin cancer. Stingers suits fit like second-skin; they are comfortable to wear, trendy and are used by top surfers worldwide for use in extreme sports due to its durability and ability to withstand sea waters and harsh environment.
