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.
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!
