LEVEL OF PRACTICE
You are learning to surf or surf only a few times a year, during your holidays or a surf trip. You stay where you can touch the bottom, in tiny waves or broken waves. You surf for the pleasure of being in the water and for the feeling you get from it. During your sessions, you often fall but you fall in waves that are not very powerful. We have designed a wide range of swimwear for you, to suit your occasional practice and your body shape.
Tie side briefs, along with the sliding triangle top, make up the two essential elements of a bikini! They are a summer wardrobe must-have. Thanks to the high-cut leg at the tops of the thighs, they make your legs look longer. Contrary to popular belief, all women can wear them, provided you are comfortable with your body and particularly your stomach, because they are rather low-rise bikini bottoms. The side ties can be tightened and they ensure the briefs stay in place in the water.
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves. To test them, we use a panel of female surfers with different body shapes who will follow a test protocol in a pool at our design offices in Hendaye. This protocol aims to reproduce the sensations experienced by surfers when being thrown around by a wave. If this test is conclusive, we go surfing in the sea to test our swimwear in real conditions.
These bikini briefs are fully lined, making the swimsuit less see-through when wet.
You can easily adjust the briefs to fit using the knotted side ties.
To ensure a perfect fit in the water, it is important to choose the right size while you are dry because once they are in the water, swimsuits become looser. We therefore recommend you buy the correct size. The swimsuit needs to fit snugly against your body in the fitting room: you should feel supported. The elastane contained in certain components used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators.An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit:http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
Is the size or style not suitable for you? Would you like to exchange it at your Decathlon store? No problem, just be sure not to cut off the label of the swimsuit in case you want to exchange it.
Based in Hendaye, in South West France, OLAIAN is Decathlon's new surfing and bodyboarding brand. In our offices at the water's edge, we can design a swimsuit and then on the same day test it directly in the sea to check it stays in place in the waves.
This product has been tested in use in Hendaye and has been subjected to numerous laboratory tests to guarantee the quality of use for which it was designed: tests on the fabric's elasticity and strength, colour fastness when rubbed, washed, exposed to sea water, chlorinated water and light, and tests on the product's overall performance after repeated washing.
