Speedo Guard Collection – For the Active Lifeguard

July 10, 2019 - Recreonics

This summer make sure you are prepared for a season of swim lessons and saving lives with Speedo’s lifeguard swim suits and swim gear. Designed for and inspired by the active lifeguard, women’s swim suits in the Speedo Guard Collection are made from Endurance Lite material, which is a blended PBT and Polyester fabric made specifically for performance. With its low water absorbency and great elasticity, Endurance Lite resists sagging and allows for greater range of motion. It is also 10% lighter weight and has a life span 20 times longer than spandex.

Speedo men’s shorts are made from a quick-drying VaporPLUS fabric which repels water and dries in record time. VaporPLUS is a treated polyester that is a more durable and quick-drying alternative to spandex and last 3 times as long. The VaporPLUS treatment also offers UV protection.

Women’s Performance Speedo Lifeguard Swim Suits


Recreonics offers two one-piece lifeguard swim suits from Speedo designed for the active lifeguard—the Guard Super Pro and the Guard Flyback. These suits are built for maximum range of motion and differ only in shoulder straps.

The Super Pro, like all women’s suits from Speedo, is made from the Endurance Lite fabric. The four-way stretch of this fabric gives the suit added comfort and performance. A higher-cut leg and supportive, razor-back design allows for freedom of movement and comfort in the water. This wide strap design is a top-seller and made especially for the active lifeguard.

The Guard Flyback swim suit will add stylish flair to your swimwear uniform collection. Like the Guard Super Pro, it also has the four-way stretch comfort of the Endurance Lite fabric and the higher-cut leg for freedom of motion. The Flyback design is similar to the razor-back Guard Super Pro, but the straps are thin with overlap binding at the back.

Speedo Two-Piece Women’s Lifeguard Suit options

The Guard Tankini swim suit top has a similar razor-back design to the Guard Super Pro with thick straps and lined shelf bra for extra support. The Tankini design provides coverage for the modest lifeguard and protects from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Through Speedo, Recreonics also offers two bra tops. Like the Tankini style, these lifeguard bra tops are lined for maximum comfort and performance.

  • The Sport Bra Guard lifeguard top is a hard-working essential in and out of the water. Lightweight and quick drying, its straps are thicker for added support.
  • The Guard Thin Strap top is designed for the style-conscious lifeguard and is all about performance. Thin straps and a lined shelf bra provide support and all-day comfort and a colorblock finish adds an on-trend flair to your uniform.

Two Speedo lifeguard bottoms options are available to go with the three swim suit tops:

  • The Guard Hipster swim bottom has the same colorblock design as the Thin Strap top. While this hipster does not feature the high-cut leg like the one-piece Super Pro and Flyback lifeguard suits, it does include bar tack reinforcements at hip stress points to support movement.
  • The second Speedo lifeguard swim suit bottom option is the Guard Swim short. This item is perfect for a lifeguard needing durable swimwear that can perform. Providing more coverage of the upper thigh than the hipster design, the Swim Short is very comfortable and will not ride up. There is an interior draw cord that allows you to customize the fit to your body-type, so you can work or lounge with ease.

All Speedo Guard two-piece top options are purchased separately from the bottoms, so you can mix and match as you please.

Men’s Quick-Drying Speedo Lifeguard Swim Shorts


Recreonics offers two men’s lifeguard shorts from Speedo, the Guard 21″ Boardshort and the Guard 19″ Volley short, both made of quick-drying VaporPLUS. The measurements on these designs are for the leg length.

  • The Guard 19″ Volley lifeguard short has the most pocket options with two side seam pockets and one interior key pocket in its mesh liner. It is available in both red and navy, and has an elastic waistband with an inner draw cord for a comfortable and secure fit.
  • Speedo’s Guard 21″ lifeguard Board short has one side pocket with a pull-tab and Velcro closure. The Board Short only comes in red and has an external draw cord.

Recreonics also offers a few lifeguard over-wear options from Speedo. For both men and women, Recreonics offers Speedo’s Graphic Guard t-shirt, which is a 100% cotton tag-less crew-neck that anyone can wear. In addition, there is a second over-wear top option for women – the Guard Graphic tank top is a staple no matter which suit option you decide to purchase. Made from a blended cotton, polyester, and spandex fabric, the womens’s graphic tank top is comfortable and stretchy to fit most body types. Also for women, the Guard Female short with stretch waistband is made from 100% polyester brushed microfiber. This short also has the VaporPlus fabric treatment for quick-drying and UV protection, and the stretch waistband allows the short to be a perfect quick on and off cover up for the active lifeguard.

Speedo’s Guard Collection is the perfect lifeguard uniform update for the busy summer season. Speedo is proud to design a collection for those who save lives. With their specially engineered fabrics, Speedo Guard suits are perfect for all lifeguards.
