Are you wanting to take the Swim Brief Challenge? But you don’t want something too skimpy. You just want to dip your toe in the swim brief water. One of the best pairs to get is the Speedo Core Solid Brief. This is one of the first swim briefs I ever wore. It’s a classic in the world of swimwear. One that many guys out there wore on at swim team practice.

The Core Solid Brief is a solid. Shocking news i know! It’s in four colors, Navy, Red, Blue and Black. They are pretty basic in the world of swimwear. I think the first pair of these I bought were the black. You really can’t go wrong with the black. This pair is what I call a competition cut. It has wider sides, roughly about 3 inches. It will give you ample coverage but still have a brief form.

Why is this a beginners pair? As mentioned above you won’t be showing off all the goods. It’s a bigger cut but is flattering on many body types. The front is flat with no pouch. This mean’s you won’t be bulging to the extreme. Also, the pair fits great. I remember the first time I tried one on and I was like “OMG this feels amazing.” The brief will give you the support you need without constricting.

This is the pair that introduced me into wearing Speedos (I can say that since I’m talking about a Speedo brand swim brief) on the beach and in the pool. After a while I ventured into other brands and smaller pairs. I guess you could call this the gateway pair. It allowed me to feel comfortable and then move on to other pairs.

Lastly the pair is made from 74% Nylon / 26% LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber. Their Xtra Life Lycra is supposed to give 5-10X more wear. I can’t vouch for that seeing I haven’t bought one of these in the last few years. This pair is available for $39.00 from the Speedo site or you can find them at any big sporting goods retailer.
