Before I get into the reasons why I love to wear swim briefs, let me preface this by saying, I’m not a model or look like most guys we feature on the blog. I dare to say a lot of you are “average” or “beefy’ like me. But, we all have the mentality that only super fit, model guys can wear them. NOT TRUE!

I have been wearing swim briefs since I was 18. This means I have a long history with them. At that time, I was tall and thin — my how times change as you get older. But I still wear swim briefs, and I wear them for many reasons.

They fit great

I love the fit of a swim brief. Board shorts and swim shorts, for the most part, have too much fabric. When I wear swim briefs, they are just comfortable to me. It almost feels like I’m wearing nothing at all.

Even if I’m at a place where I have to wear swim shorts, I ALWAYS wear a swim brief under them. I love the support they give me. I don’t see how guys can wear swim shorts with nothing under them (that mesh liner drives me nuts) or regular underwear.

Fast Drying

One of my pet peeves is sitting in wet clothes. I hate it more than anything. Swim briefs were the first clothing item that I went swimming, and when I got out of the pool, they dried almost instantly. There have been times where I spent the entire day in a swim brief. In and out of the water, hanging out, and it never once made me want to change into something else.

They are sexy

I think they are sexy as hell. Not just on models but all guys. It’s not just showing off what you have, which you can do in a swim brief. It’s more the confidence to wear it and wear it proud. When I was younger, I have been in situations where I was the only person in a swim brief on the beach. It never bothered me. I’m sure comments were made, but no one ever made them to me.

There are a few reasons I love to wear swim briefs. I”m curious to know why you guys wear them. I have put together a poll and will publish the results soon!
