Today in our UNB Reder Survey Results, We go over swimwear. Here I am, though; I’m in the home stretch. I had all the tabulations done (of if I did, I lost the file), and All I have to do is make the slides. NOPE, I didn’t finish things and had more tabulations. UGH, But I managed to bang out the swimwear slides to get out to you guys

What are you guys going to wear this year? The swim brief still reigns supreme. More than half of you guys plan to wear them. The surprise to me was just a little more preferred the swim shorts over the swim Trunk Thongs became a strong third with almost 25% of you guys going to suns out buns out on the beach.

Speaking of swim thongs! We asked if you have worn thongs; if you haven’t, would you wear them? Over 35%have worn the thong. Another 30% would be willing to wear thongs, and just under 30% have no desire to wear them. That makes the majority of you guys want to wear thongs.

Compare this to what you guys are wearing. Again most guys will be wearing a swim brief. But they were tied in trunks and Thongs for second place, with swim shorts coming in a close fourth—this question allowed for more than one answer per person.

We were curious how many pairs of swimwear you guys buy each year. The first thing you notice is that no one is planning to buy one pair, which is surprising. You guys buy 2-6 new pairs a year. I want to know w ho buys 11+ pairs!

Next, we asked how much you spend on swimwear. You guys spend a lot more than I do! Most of you spend $51-65 on a pair of swim. The next group is in my price range of $35-50 . Some guys splurge at 80+.

One thing to notice in these slides series is whether it’s a public or private space. If it’s more public, you guys wear more coverage, such as swim shots. You guys break out the swim briefs and thongs if it’s a private place. However, across most of these, the swim briefs are pretty strong. I think we will constantly see them grow over the next few years.
