About This Project

How can a swimsuit positively influence swimming performance? Should it be close-fitting, offer the least possible drag, or have a high float capacity?


To give the Dutch coaches and support staff something to hold on to in the sea of different swimsuits currently available, TU Delft, VU Amsterdam, the Royal Dutch Swimming Federation (KNZB) and InnoSportNL put their heads together and initiated a research trajectory.


With this they hope to be able to support the sports federations in selecting the right materials. This is an important factor, which is why new materials are constantly being introduced.
