In case you’re not familiar with the brand, Swing Control is a Canadian company that specializes in women’s golf apparel, specifically bottoms in the form of skorts, capris, pants and shorts. They have a special relationship with San Soleil, another Canadian sportswear company that specializes in women’s tops. Keep following The Golfin’ Guy to learn more on San Soleil in a separate article.
The inspiration for the company came from a love of both golf and fashion. Their skilled team of designers spent years turning “active wear” into “anytime” wear. This is golf wear that can be worn anywhere on anybody and looks as good in the office as it does on the putting green!
Two features set Swing Control’s bottoms apart from the rest of the field. The first is the slimming tummy control waistbands, which are available in two models: Basic and Masters. The major difference between the two is the width; the Basic is 2 ¾” wide, the Masters waistband is 4 ¼” wide. The Masters also adds an extra layer of tummy control the entire way around the waistband. Both are sewn from a polyester/spandex blend fabric with moisture-wicking to keep you cool and dry.
The Masters styles seem to have a little more detail to them. For example, while the legs on the Basic garments will have slits on the legs, the Masters models have eyelets and lacing. The front pockets are cut at a different angle as well.
The second differentiator of this clothing line is the colors and prints, there’s nothing like it available on the market today. The colors and prints are bright and vivid, without being over-the-top and obnoxious. Soft Florals and brilliant solids are what their spring collection for 2018 is all about. Their designs have style and class, something every gal would be happy to wear on the course. No matter the style or pattern you choose, you’ll find them all available in sizes 0 – 16. There’s always a Swing Control logo above the front left pocket.
The Skort: Now you can have it both ways: sporty and chic. This easy to pull-on design is made from a stretchy fabric that moves with you and won’t pinch or bind. There’s plenty of pockets with two in the front and two back pockets as well. Swing Control’s skorts are made with built-in shorts, giving you freedom of movement, as well as an extra dose of confidence; they’re also lightweight and breathable. Swing Control Skorts are available with both a Basic or Masters waistband for as much tummy control as you need. The Basic Collection is available in 4 solid colors and 1 print while there are 8 solid colors and 7 different prints available in the Masters Collection including a couple of knit skorts. This may very well be the most comfortable skort you ever put on.
The Shorts: Swing Control’s Shorts feature a 13 ½” inseam, 9 ¼” front rise and a 9” leg opening. These are true Bermuda shorts that fall to just above the knee. The Lycra fabric adds two-way stretch for freedom of movement and comfort and is quick drying; wicking moisture away from your body quickly for quick evaporation. The comfort of these shorts is second to none. These shorts are available in either a Basic or Masters waistband; each in 4 solid colors and 2 prints.
The Ankle: These sporty pants feature a 28” Inseam, 9 ¼” front rise and a 4” leg opening. The polyester/spandex blended fabric is moisture wicking and moves with you as you move through your golf swing. Two front and two back welt pockets provide ample room for all a gal’s on-course essentials. With an attention to detail, this popular garment is a popular length to fit any size body; Swing Control’s Ankle Pants could easily become your favorite “go to” pants. They are available in 3 solid colors and two prints in the Basic Collection and 5 solids and 6 prints in the Masters Collection.
The Crop/Capri: Soft, sleek and stretchy, these pants are just the thing to add some pizzazz and style to your golf wardrobe. They feature a 24” inseam, 9 ¼ front rise and 7” leg opening. The legs are designed to fall mid-calf. The polyester blend fabric has plenty of stretch, breathability and moisture-wicking.
