Swimming in cold water can be a daunting task, especially during cold weather. But with the right gear, you and your little ones can enjoy the benefits of swimming without freezing up. One such essential is the fleece-lined thermal swimwear.
Fleece-lined thermal swimwear is a type of swimsuit designed to keep the wearer warm in cold water. The suit has a fleece lining that provides extra insulation and warmth. The fleece lining works by trapping a layer of warm air between the skin and the swimsuit. This layer of warm air acts as an insulator, keeping body heat trapped and preventing it from escaping into the surrounding water.
The fleece lining also wicks away moisture from the body, which helps to regulate core body temperature. When swimming in cold water, the body can quickly lose heat due to the evaporative cooling effect of the water. For babies and young children, this happens quickly due to their small body size. The fleece lining helps to keep little ones dry, minimising the loss of body heat.
In addition to the fleece lining, thermal swimwear often have other features that help to keep us warm. For example, some suits have a high neck collar to protect the neck from cold water. Others have long sleeves and legs to provide extra coverage for the limbs.
In conclusion, fleece-lined thermal swimwear works by providing a layer of insulation between your skin and the cold water. The fleece lining traps a layer of warm air and wicks away moisture, helping to regulate body temperature and keep the wearer warm.
