Your neckline should be flush with your skin to prevent excess water from entering the mucus, but do not rub or force your neck too much. They are claiming low-waist lines on the market , as they feel more natural. The only way to know if your neckline rubbing is to bathe with the muff, because the position and the movement of your head is so decisive.
Once worn, try to pull the muff away from the skin: ideally it should act as a vacuum, or suck the muff to you if you just released it. If there are obvious creases, these are the points where water can over-stagnate once you are swimming.
Flexible arm materials are widespread as they provide greater comfort and a better feeling of water, but the negative aspect, if the fit is not sufficiently adherent, is that the wristband can be stretched / widened by allowing the water to flow, While swimming (resulting in increased strength effect). Wrist holdings have been designed to ward off this effect.
If the mucus is too tight on the chest, you can work hard to completely swell the lungs with the effect of having the short breath. If it is too large, too much water enters the mud. If your arms and legs are too tight, pull out the mud at the end of the bath becomes a business and you can also get cold and numb hands and feet. Even in this case too wide a limb in the limbs allows too much water to enter the mud. If the length of the trunk is too short it will increase the pressure on the shoulders and arms. In that case, the mute can detach itself from your lower back and you feel as though the muta was pulling you back.
Ideally, the arm and leg length should match exactly, but if so, there is the possibility of cutting and removing the excess length to make the mud easier to remove. However, it should be remembered that the limbs are tapered and, if the lining is too short, the lining can then be wider around the limbs.

- If necessary, apply non-petroleum based lubricants (such as MOTUS) to the wrist, neck and ankles.
- The jumper of the suit goes to the back.
