Missy Franklin to Release a Swimwear Collection with Speedo


Because being a five-time Olympic medalist and the holder of two individual world records at just 20 years old wasn't enough, Missy Franklin has earned herself yet another bragging right: The USA National Team swimmer has just announced her own high-performance swimwear collection for women and girls, designed in collaboration with Speedo. (She signed an endorsement deal with the brand last summer.)

The "Missy Franklin Signature Series" will include 18 pieces—one-piece practice suits as well as mix-and-match separates—"designed to make women and girls feel comfortable and confident in and out of the water," according to the press release. While we've yet to see photos, the collection will reportedly contain "three vibrant color stories" with shapes, cuts, and fits based on Franklin's own experience in the pool.

And best of all, the line touts Olympic-level quality—the pieces features durable, chlorine-resistant fabric both for added support and to better maintain color and shape year after year. Franklin shares that she tested the suits herself during her 'rigorous training sessions'. (Feeling inspired to hit the water? Here's a fun swim workout for a full-body burn.)

The line also includes a healthy dose of #fitspo with the addition of one of Franklin's favorite mottos, "with strength and dignity...," printed on the leg openings of the one-pieces and the underside of the bands on the two-piece tops.

You'll have to wait until the fall to get your hands on the collection through Speedo's website, but in the meantime, you can shop sporty-chic sweat-proof swimwear for all your summer workouts.
