Whether you swim for fun or exercise, your swimwear holds the key to your agility and comfort. It also affects your confidence and determines whether you can enjoy your time at the pool or not.
Now let us discuss how to choose the right swimwear for you.
First of all, the types of material are the most overlooked factor when a person decides to buy swimwear. But in reality, when it comes to chlorine resistance, the fabric determines the swimwear durability.
The most common fabric to use as in swimwear is polyester. It is resilient enough to stand against chlorine and will not disintegrate if you wear it in the water for a long time.
Polyester also dries up quickly. It will save you the laundry time. You just need to rinse the swimwear with clean water and hang it.
The fabric does not stretch or shrink even after multiple times of drying and washing. You do not need to be worried about your swimwear getting loose or too tight to wear.
The second material is PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate). It is a better water repellant and much lighter than polyester. PBT swimwear does not get soggy when you submerge into the water.
Both polyester and PBT can resist saltwater, but it might reduce the swimwear lifetime significantly.
Finding the perfect size is essential for your comfort and confidence. Do not opt for a one size swimwear because big chances are they can get loose when you swim.
Try the desired swimwear in the fitting room and make sure it fits perfectly on your hips. Some people have big thighs, and if you are one of them, perhaps nylon swimwear is more suitable for you. Nylon has the best stretching fabric for a swimwear.
There are two types of each female and male swimwear, one piece, and two pieces. One piece suits you if you want to cover your skin from UV light. Two pieces are the best swimwear if you’re going to get tanned. For male swimwear, the one piece swimwear is usually used for swimming at sea. For swimming at a pool, wearing a pair of shorts is enough.
When fitting the swimwear size, comfort must be the number one consideration, and appearance the second.
Quality swimwear is expensive, but they are durable and can last longer than the cheaper one. When you buy a swimsuit, consider it as an investment. It is better to buy from famous brands, such as Speedo, Kiefer, TYR, Arena, and Doffin.
A family binds together by love and sweet memories. It is the place where the kids grow up, and where a couple learns more about responsibility. And finance becomes something that is vital to a family’s wellbeing.
Kid’s education needs money. There are short and long-term family goals that also requires money. Family finance is central to the ability of a family to advance and reach their dreams. And the key to a stable financial condition is a smart management skill.
Read below to learn more about family finance management.
Having separate money to respect each other’s privacy is alright. But there has to be one financial manager, mainly when it deals with family expenditure.
Let us define family expenditure as any expenses which are for the good of all family members, such as daily meal expense, transportation cost, and big expenses that will use up family’s saving. By centralizing the money in one person, and let him/her regulate will make planning much easier and enforce discipline to the rest of the family.
Each member of the family should have the right to write their needs in the form of a wishlist, and then to report it to the family financial manager. Even the manager should have the opportunity for doing this too.
After writing the wishlist, the parents in the family should decide which needs should be prioritized first. For example, you want to have a new travel bag because the existing one is already worn out and you need it fast because you are going to have a business trip soon, but at the same time, your daughter wants to have a bike, and she has never had one before. The financial manager should be trusted to decide such a matter, whose wishlist will get realized first and whose should be postponed.
The main book-keeping should be the job of the financial manager, but the other family members need to report their expense too. It will be a fun and educational project to ask each of the family members to make a weekly, monthly, and yearly financial reports. Kids will learn how to be responsible with money, and adults will have the chance to show their kids how life expense at their stage is.
Make everyone get used to noting detailed expense and appreciate even the smallest change. Give rewards to the most prudent family member.
