While you can use any city-approved swimsuit, it is easier to swim in form-fitting swimsuits that have less drag.
For modesty, you may wear a shirt to cover your swimsuit if you wish. Short sleeve, tight-fitting shirts are easier to swim in than loose long sleeve shirts. Any shirt should be a synthetic material NOT cotton which gets very heavy in the water.
No swim gear will be allowed that can cover the mouth or nose, or is excessively loose, or heavy that may not allow for air.
