Our design team has developed this one-piece swimsuit for young intermediate surfers surfing metre-high waves. The HIMAE one-piece swimsuit has been designed to provide intermediate surfers with a swimsuit with a secure fit in the waves and freedom of movement when paddling.
Carefully designed to stay in place in waves of more than one metre
YOU ARE AN INTERMEDIATE SURFER
Surfing is one of your favourite sports and you surf regularly in warm water. During your sessions, you paddle out to the line-up and either duck dive or turtle roll, depending on whether you are on a shortboard or a longboard. You often wipe out and you are used to being thrown about underwater. You want your swimwear to stay in place with each of your movements and not get in your way when paddling.
We have created the 1-piece RIO shorty for all young female surfers who wish to surf in a swimsuit without the risk of losing it and who want good coverage. The cut is also designed for easy dressing. Fits all body shapes.
GIRLS' SWIMSUIT SIZES
At Decathlon, we design swimsuits for young surfers by taking into account their growth. It is for this reason that we systematically associate the kid's height with the size, as age is not sufficient to guarantee the correct size. Two 10-year-old girls can be of totally different heights, weights and shapes, and have different measurements. We also recommend trying the swimsuits on if possible.
OUR GIRLS' SWIMWEAR SIZES:
Here is the link between age and height on our swimsuit labels: 4/5 years: from 105 to 114 cm 5/6 years: from 115 to 124 cm 7/8 years: from 125 to 132 cm 8/9 years: from 133 to 142 cm 10/11 years: from 143 to 150 cm 12/13 years: from 151 to 160 cm 14/15 years: from 161 to 169 cm
DRY SIZING AND WET SIZING
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, and you should feel supported. The elastane content in certain components used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
STAYS IN PLACE IN THE WAVES: THE TEST
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves. To test them, we use a panel of at least 12 female surfers with different body shapes who follow a test protocol in a pool at our design offices in Hendaye. The protocol is designed 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.
DO YOU WANT TO EXCHANGE YOUR SWIMSUIT?
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.

A score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle 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 has voluntarily opted to apply this environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
