Speedo is a global leader in swimwear. Regardless of age, gender or swimming skills, Speedo provides appropriate swim apparel designed to improve performance.

Speedo was founded in 1928 but it started under a different brand name (‘Fortitude’) in 1914. A young Scot named Alexander MacRae started the company and in the 1920s, as the market grew and swimming became more widely accepted, he introduced a new design called the ‘Racerback.’ This allowed wearers to swim faster. A staff member coined the slogan ‘Speed on in your Speedos’ and the rest is history.

Over the years, Speedo has continued to lead the way in swimwear innovation. In 2004, they launched FASTSKIN® FSII which was worn by Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps when he made history as the first swimmer to win eight medals. In 2008, 92% of all the medals at the Beijing Olympics were won by athletes wearing Speedo’s LZR Racer. Since then, Speedo has added and improved upon the features of this renowned product line.

You don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to experience the benefits of wearing Speedo swimwear. Even for amateur swimmers, Speedo’s leg compression and muscle support design can help you correct your body’s position in water.

They are also known to be durable and more resistant to fading than other swimwear brands. Speedo’s Endurance+ fabric is chlorine-resistant, so it won’t become baggy and create drag even after repeated use. The stretchable, breathable, quick-drying and lightweight fabric also makes it a great choice for performance underwear.

And they’re not just functional, they can be fashionable too. They look good and are great for holiday trips to the beach. Speedo’s Sculpture range of swimwear for women features body shaping technology that allows for confidence-boosting visual detailing like bust support and tummy control.
