The Baywatch Hawaii Yellow Lifeguard Swimsuit, also known as the Baywatch Yellow Bathing Suit is an article of clothing worn by the female lifeguards of Baywatch Hawaii when they are on beach duty.

This particular suit was used during the two seasons of Baywatch based in Hawaii (known as Seasons 10 and 11 of the original series and Seasons 1 and 2 of the Hawaiian-themed series itself).

The creation of the swimsuit[]

The swimsuit was manufactured by TYR and had the same design as the original red swimsuit, except with a Baywatch Hawaii Lifeguard patch. It was used by the producers to be a reliable suit that would work in the surf.

The yellow swimsuit was used to denote being a member of the elite Baywatch Hawaiian lifeguard training centre team, while the North Shore lifeguards remained in the traditional red swimsuits.

It was first seen in the first episode of Season 10, being given to new recruits as both Mitch Buchannon and Sean Monroe were recruiting members to join their new Baywatch Hawaii Lifeguard team.

Australian lifeguard Allie Reese was sent one by mail to see how comfortable she would feel in it.




Other wearers of the swimsuit[]


  • Like its predecessor, the design changed with the shoulder straps and leg space being different to accommodate the individual actresses.
  • During Season 10 (Baywatch Hawaii Season 1) the most common style was the thicker strapped open back swimsuit. However, in Season 11 (Baywatch Hawaii Season 2) the most common type changed to the thin strapped variation of the open back swimsuit.
  • Brande Roderick wore both designs of the swimsuit during her stint on the show.
  • Actress and model Barbara Moore, who guest starred as lifeguard Sandy in an episode of Baywatch Nights, also wore the first design of the swimsuit during a photoshoot and at an event celebrating Baywatch's 10th Anniversary in 1999, around the same time the first Hawaiian based series of Baywatch began.
