We here at UNB have been on the Swim brief wagon for many years. Each year we challenge guys to break out and wear something different. That caused the formation of the Swim Brief & Swim Thong Challenges. This year we didn’t push it as much as we usually do, but we are still big on the style!

A new Instagram account is out that we support their mission. The mission of this account is two-fold. The first mission is that more guys should wear swim briefs. The second is that guys of any shape or size should wear them. So, they are super body positive. The account is the Speedo Movement.

They are “Speedo Activist,” which is “Promoting male body positivity and the worldwide acceptance of swim briefs on all bodies. DIM to share your own speedo story. “

We asked them why they started:

My husband and I started this page to help with the idea that speedos can look great on everybody! Male body positivity is a real thing, and it’s a shame that society limits the idea that only fit, buff men with a six-pack can enjoy time in the sun in a speedo. This page is a way to share a safe space with the world, where no matter your story, you can stand alongside other people who love wearing a swim brief! We try to make sure everyone gets a feature, and providing diversity across all categories is very important to us!

The Speedo Movement hasn’t been on Instagram long, but they are making an impact. SM has been showing guys of all sizes rocking the swim brief. Guys are out in public (pools and beaches) and in private. It’s great to see all these guys.

Speaking as a “bigger” guy, I get self-conscious about being out in public in a swim brief. Yes, even the owner of UNB has these issues. It’s not just you guys.

If you want to be featured, follow them on IG and send them a message.
