Abstract:

Abstract: Female swimmers wear apparel in practice and competition with minimal coverage, which has the potential to impact body image. During practice, swimmers can choose suits based on individual preferences, such as appearance (e.g., avoiding tan lines) or function (e.g, fit). This study sought to investigate suit preferences and its relationship to body surveillance and confidence. In total, 115 collegiate female swimmers completed an online survey including the State Sport-Confidence Inventory, the Objectified Body Consciousness Scale, and a swimsuit choice measure. Independent t-tests found no significant differences in body surveillance or confidence between two groups: swimmers who chose suits based on function vs. appearance. However, qualitative findings indicated swimmers were cognizant of their appearance and selected suits based on environmental factors. Overall, findings indicate that many swimmers think about appearance when selecting practice apparel, which has the potential to impact body image and performance.
