Before I get into this fantastic new brand, Alfons Dovana, I want to say that I am looking for brands for Swimwear Sunday that have sizing that can fit most guys who read UNB. I have found many fantastic pairs, but the sizing goes up to 34 or 36. That leaves out a significant portion of the population. All guys should wear what they feel sexy in, regardless of size.

I stumbled across Alfons Dovana on Instagram. They ran an ad, and it caught my eye. Here is this muscle bear in something super skimpy. I went to their site and loved what I saw. They have whole collections of prints that come in several cuts, including kaftans. The line I chose is the Stars due to the 4th of July Holiday here in the States. The Stars doesn’t have a kaftan but has a brief, thong, and bodysuit.

I don’t usually pick three pairs for Swimwear Sunday, but these go so well together that I had to profile all three. The bodysuit or one-piece swimwear is taking off with guys this year. It started to grow last year, but it’s gaining more traction this year. The USA bodysuit has two red panels with piping to give it more of a contoured fit. The best thing about the brand is they give you sizing advice. “The model is 6’2 and wearing an XL. This bodysuit fits true to size; if you have a broad chest and are taller than 6′, consider sizing one size up.” This bodysuit retails for $115.

Next, the USA Brief. I will admit that I love a full-cut swim brief because it takes me back to when I would buy official “Speedo” swim briefs. I think the cut looks great on all body types, not just a muscle guy. This is a “classic fit that will never go out of style.” The model is 6’0 and wears an XL. The USA Brief retails for $85.

Lastly is the USA Thong. I think swim thongs are now a pretty standard style that most bands need to carry in their lineup. This thong appears to be a more significant cut but has a nice back that should be comfy from the day. I don’t have the size on this, but I assume it’s the same as the brief since it looks like the same model. The thong retails for $75.

If you want to share your patriotism this 4th of July, check out this line, get one or all three, and do some wardrobe changes. Start in the bodysuit and work your way down to the thong. They have many other prints if you aren’t a fan of the patriotic motif.
