    Who makes swimmable leggings?

    Does anyone know of a tailmaker or company that makes swimmable leggings?

    They don't need to be scaled, but mer themed would be prefered.

    edit 2.20: I decided not to get them because I realized they are the same as some other leggings I got off Amazon from a different seller, just a different color.

    I've found some on Amazon. Since they cost a lot less than others I'm willing to give it a shot:https://www.amazon.com/Cokar-Swimwea.../dp/B00XHQZ71G

    Suntails just released some (I think it's recent), and I'd be interested if anyone's gotten them. They have less of a visible seam than their same-price competitor, Fin Fun. (I too am on a fervent hunt for some).

    The Suntail ones are recent.

    I have a pair of the Suntail leggings which I'm about 80% pleased with. The elastic could be more comfortable though - in the photos it looks like a wide comfy band, but it's very thin elastic in there, and at first it felt like it was kind of cutting into me. I told them and they thanked me fervently for my feedback, so perhaps they'll change it if more people ask.

    I have got used to it though, maybe a bit of stretch and it getting wet has helped.

    I'm not a slender merwoman, at waist 41 inches and hips 46 inches I think I'm probably just at the edge of the largest size, if you're less than that it'll be fine, but if you're more, perhaps not.

    Red face Fin Fun has tons!

    I'm in love with Fin Fun's leggings. They actually look like their mermaid tails, which is great for those of us who are in love with a particular design. I think they even have a sale on them right now. https://www.finfunmermaid.com/mermai...rmaid-leggings

    Can you take a couple shots of the leggings? Mainly the seam and a close up of the scales. Thank you if you do.

    Sure. Have a look here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/LMSjxZZKJnwNoSPX9 What's not clear in the photos is that the leg seams are on the inside, so it's only the waist and central seam down the front that shows, and it's even particularly obvious, and I guess it might be less so with the other colours in the range.

    Those Fin Fun leggings look great! I'm tempted to see if a pair would fit me...

    It's great when you have a skin that matches your leggings. I was wearing my matching skin over my leggings and really spun out some folks, taking the skin off and having the leggings underneath.

    I'd love to have someone compare the Fin Fun and the Suntail leggings

    Those look SOOOO different from their pix online!! I love the color more in your pix than the site.

    All right I got my blue lagoon Suntail leggings today. I went with them because on Amazon Finfun has posted that their leggings are NOT for swimming. Suntail has such a beautiful color and realistic scales that really pop. They are small too which is nice compared to big Finfun or Mertailor scales. They get smaller towards the ankle too which is a nice effect. Will swim in them this weekend.

    Only issue is if I bend my knees or stretch it too much, you can start to see thru it some.

    I confirmed with Finfun that they do NOT recommend their leggings for swimming. RIP

    I used my Suntail leggings yesterday under my Mertailor tail and they were great!!! The pool was super cold so the extra layer helped a lot. The leggings are very slick so the tail slid down a lot more than usual. They get skin tight in water too. So I would recommend Suntail leggings for sure to swim with but not under a tail if you are worried about the tail sliding down.

    Has anyone seen the new Swimtails leggings with the fins! They look so cool! Especially the Beta and Whale Shark themed ones.

    Wellll...they are interesting. Not sure how I feel. Got to see some in person or an actual pic. If I am gping to pay $130 for leggings I may as well just buy a tail. Mostly, I am not buying from Swimtails after all they have done
