Swimwear Sunday


Today, I have been racking my brains to find the final pair to round out the Swimwear Sunday feature. Everything I wanted to profile has been sold, has no pictures, or is on clearance. I don’t have an issue with being on clearance, but if I direct people to the pair, I want them to be able to buy it. This made me think I should tell my journey in swim briefs. This will build on the recent group show on the Brief Talk Podcast.

The Early Years

I grew up in the 80’s, and this was a time for men to wear swim briefs. They were more common than they are now. It was the Summer of 84, and I noticed the swimmers and divers rocking the swim briefs. I knew I had to get one of these fantastic swimsuits. At the time, I wore bikinis every day, but I thought it would be incredible if I could feel like bikini briefs in swimwear.

Once at the mall, I said I was going to the bookstore but went to the sporting goods store there. I had been there a few times with the parents and knew they had “Speedos,” the real deal, the same I had seen swimmers and divers wearing. I walked in all nervous, flipped through the bright, solid colors, found my size, and ran to the dressing room. I quickly took my pants off and slid them on. I was not ready for the feeling of the super tight spandex. I was in love; these were better than I even imagined. I took them off, left them in the dressing room, and quickly left. I knew I had no money to buy them, so I had to wait.

We took a family vacation to Virginia Beach about a year after this. Sitting on our balcony, I noticed two guys lying on the beach in speedos. Two guys were wearing what I wanted to wear. So when I went to one of those tourist stores, I noticed they had Speedos and bought a purple Speedo on clearance. I didn’t see the size as a 36; at the time, I was a 31/32. It was a little too big, and I didn’t get the same feeling as the one I tried on, but it didn’t matter; I had an honest to-go “Speedo.” I even have a pic of a young me in this Speedo; the problem is I don’t know what box it’s in. (Sorry guys, this was way before camera phones).

I Became a Man in a Swim Brief.

After graduating High School and attending college in downtown Atlanta, I started to discover places like the Boy Next Door and where guys would go lay out. Boys would go to Piedmont Park (back then, not now) and lay on the “hill” at Monroe and 10th St. It was usually covered in guys in swim briefs laying out every Summer. I went to the Boy Next Door, bought swim briefs, and laid on the hill.

I would do this because I was always in town for school or work. It reached the point that I would plan on tanning time, even if it were only 20 mins. I would always wear swim briefs under my clothes and have a blanket in the trunk to lay out. I would park in the gravel lot, walk out to the hill, put my blanket down, and strip to my Speedo. As you can imagine, everyone nearby would watch the newcomer strip down, and I was always curious about what guys wear. I rarely talked to anyone, being introverted and shy. I just laid out and enjoyed the camaraderie of other swim brief guys.

I also started wearing them to “gay” events, such as friends’ pools, beach trips, and more. I remember going to the beach, and I was the only one on the beach in one, and I didn’t care. One of the biggest fights I got into with an ex (who was an ex at the time, and we were on a break, like friends) was if I was going to wear my flag swim brief on the beach in Panama City. First, I know the city is not a gay-friendly mecca, and second, it was planned before the break. I relented and didn’t pull my shorts off to reveal the patriotic swimsuit. To this day, I wish I would have said fuck it and done it and not worried about his thoughts.

Right after this, I joined the gay masters swim team. I loved this not only cause I could and it’s encouraged to wear “Speedos,” but I had so many of them that I never wore the same one twice. It would go noticed that me and one other guy never wore the same one twice. My collection grew and grew.

At the time, I was a 32-waisted at most and didn’t care. I was what you consider a tall twink with a great bulge. This was about to change.

Body Image Issues

After I stopped swimming, I began to gain weight; nothing major at first, but my waist started to grow from 33-34, then to 36 and more. Over the next ten years, I would range from a 36-42 inch waist. This made me cut back on my swim brief wearing. I wouldn’t say I liked my appearance and would no longer feel comfortable wearing them in gay situations. I reserved them to spaces where no one would mind a beefy guy in a speedo.

This would continue even to this day. I hear many of you saying, but Tim, you have Stevie, Ryan, Will, and Wayne on the podcast, all sexy, beefy men wearing swim briefs and not caring about it. You are correct. Each of these guys is a true inspiration to me. If I went to LA and hung out with Ryan and Will, I would wear something to match their swim briefs. I feel safe in numbers rather than being the only guy on the beach rocking a swim brief. Isn’t it strange that in our younger days, we are carefree and say fuck it but the older we get, the more we worry about others and censor ourselves?

Like many of you, I’m working on my issues and will wear swim briefs with pride and not care what others think. But, as many of you know, it’s not easy to change our body issues; it’s more than losing weight. It’s about being comfortable as we are and how we look. My goal for next year is to go somewhere out of my comfort zone and wear a swim brief. I would have done it this year, but with some medical issues that affected me, my summer was not the best. Plus, it took a lot of time and money that I would have spent on a nice vacation.

I hope many of you who have gone through something similar, or this will reach out. DM or Email me, and let’s talk and encourage each other to wear what we want!

I learned about Funky Trunks from having Downunder Bri on the Brief Talk Podcast. He told us about some of the brands in Australia, and Funky Trunks was one of them. He told us that they specialize in swimwear for swimming. And thinking about Swimwear Sunday, I have yet to showcase a pair that you can wear to the beach and swim laps in.

The reason I chose the Lashed brief was the print. I love fun prints in swimwear and think you should always go bold with your swimwear. But that’s just my opinion. Here are some things that Funky Trunks said about the pair:

  • I have a drawcord to keep me locked in position and a wide elastic leg opening and waistband for added comfort around your hips and legs.
  • Like you, I am a fine specimen that is exceptionally well made for durability and comfort whenever we’re together.
  • Made from our exclusive C-Infinity fabric, a 100% Italian polyester that is a colourful breakthrough in chlorine-resistant fabric technology! 
  • The superior choice for swimmers, C-Infinity has exceptional strength and can retain its durability far beyond other elastane swimwear fabrics.
  • It is ideal for frequent pool use for recreational and performance-based swimming.

If you are looking for a more performance pair, I thnk Funky Trunks will be perfect for you! The bold colors and fabric will hold up to laps swimming in the pool and ocean. Funky Trunks is reasonably priced at $41.75 (with current exchange rates). also note that you will have international shipping form Australia.

Side Tie swimwear has become a massive trend in the world of men’s swimwear. They are usually thongs but we have seen some bikinis as well. Will the trend stick around, I don’t know but it’s a fun trend in men’s swimwear that I hope sticks around.

Elevate your allure at the pool party, circuit party, or any festive event with Vaux’s newest innovation: the Vaux Blossom Side Tie Swim Thong. Engineered from a top-tier nylon/spandex blend, this swimwear guarantees remarkable elasticity and robustness. The eye-catching design showcases an exclusive digital floral print, harmonized with double-Y back straps and utilitarian side ties. Noteworthy design components encompass the VAUX metal plate logo positioned on the front left pouch, along with the practical tie sides, collectively enhancing the irresistible charm of this extraordinary thong.

The thong comes in two different colors, purple and black. The thong is made out of a Fabric Content: 87% Nylon 13% Spandex. The sizing runs from small – XL (XL runs to 37 inch waist). The Blossom Thong retails for $40 on the Timoteo Site.

If you want to turn some heads on the beach, the Vaux Blossom Side Tie Swim Thong will do just that and more. It is skimpy, small and bright.

It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of Swimwear Sunday. We have a few weeks left, and swimwear season will end before we know it. I was racking my brain in who to profile this weekend; then I saw our Steaks and Cakes boys posting pics from Mexico in these super fun green and pink swim briefs! Ryan and Will looked incredible in these suits. I had to profile them today, plus MCE Creations makes such excellent gear; they are a small brand but never underestimate them. The pair they wore were the Gold Buckle Swim Briefs.

“Soak up the sun in these cute and comfortable swim briefs. This cut and contoured seams work to shape and frame the body. Briefs are a snug fit. If you are at the upper end of the size range and are concerned on the fit, it is recommended to go a size up” This is what MCE says about the briefs, and it spot on!

The first thing to notice about the briefs is their unique colors; Artemis, Hades, Apollo, and Eros are the more death tones. While the Pink, Green, and blue colors are the bold colors. You will stand out and command attention to these three colors.

The next thing is the fit. They are smaller but hug every curve of a man’s body and show it off nicely. When I saw the boys in these, I was like, WOW, you boys are super hot in them. It got me thinking of picking up a pair for myself. Plus, having hardware on swimwear seems to be a big trend in men’s swimwear.

If you are looking for a new suit for Labor Day weekend and want something bold, go with the MCE Gold Buckle collection, you won’t be disappointed, and hey, it’s easy to access if you need such a thing. All the colors cost $42 and are reasonable for swimwear. Plus, you will be supporting a small brand.

Swimwear Sunday is the perfect occasion to celebrate the stunning world of swimwear! We’re stepping up our game this year by featuring some amazing smaller brands and brands prioritizing inclusive sizing. Let’s face it; it’s not always easy to find swimwear options for those with waist sizes above 36 inches. But fear not because today’s brand has got you covered with its fantastic selection, including its latest addition, the Verge Bikini Swimwear.

When you hear the name Nasty Pig, you might immediately think of their edgy and enticing fetishwear, but did you know they also offer a fun and sizable swimwear collection? For Swimwear Sunday, I’ve handpicked the Verge Bikini as the star of the show. With its engineered gradient stripe print on both the front and back, this bikini is designed to make a bold statement and capture all the attention. Prepare to turn heads and make waves as you flaunt yourself in this incredibly sexy piece.

The custom-engineered striped print on the front and back of the Verge Bikini is strategically designed to draw attention to your most enticing bulges. Made from a perfect-weight fabric for swimwear, it looks fantastic and dries quickly, allowing you to stay comfortable all day. The bikini features an external drawcord to complete the look, adding another vertical stripe motif that enhances its overall aesthetic. And let’s not forget the Snout Logo on the left leg, adding a touch of contrast color to make your warm weather cruising experience even sexier.

If you’re ready to take your swimwear game to the next level, you can get your hands on this incredible Swimwear Sunday pair directly from the Nasty Pig site. Just visit their online store at The Verge Bikini retails for $59.00, and trust me, it’s worth every penny.

So go ahead, embrace your adventurous side, and rock this remarkable piece of swimwear that will make you the envy of the beach or poolside. Happy Swimwear Sunday!

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.

This past week we released a podcast with the Steaks_n_Cakes boys (Will & Ryan) and Texas Renegade (Wayne), where we talked about being bigger, beefy guys and the issues we have finding good underwear and swimwear. If you know, you know! This Swimwear Sunday, I wanted to profile a pair that most of our guys could wear.

I chose the MCE Creations Palm Dreams to swim brief. The first reason is the super fun print. MCE is no stranger to making swim/underwear from these super unique, bold prints. They will command attention where ever you wear them. I can almost guarantee that when you wear this pair, people will come and ask you where you got the great swim briefs.

MCE Creations tries to include all body types in its sizing. It is excellent to find a brand that purposely includes bigger/beefy guys in their sizing. I love to wear swim briefs and have worn them since I was 18. I feel so comfortable in them; even though I may not have a 32-inch waist, I love the fit and feel of the minimal fabric at the beach or pool whenever possible.

No matter your size MCE has something for you. They create these fantastic prints that range from rainbow to the most outstanding abstracts. If you aren’t a print guy, they also have solids, and if you want to add a bit of sex appeal, they have their infamous buckle swim brief.

Check out this pair and everything MCE Has to offer. You will find many things you love and don’t blame me if you want one of everything.

We kick off our summer feature Swimwear Sunday!!! Swimwear Sunday is where we profile a fantastic pair of swimwear we think you should check out for summer. You will know some of these brands, and others will be new to you. If you are a long-time reader and podcast listener of the podcast, we have had Ikakos on several times! You can hear the last episode of the Brief Talk Podcast, where we talk about this fantastic new

The first pair I chose for Swimwear Sunday is the Jungly Brief! I believe swimwear should be fun, bold, and colorful. Swimwear should make you happy and put a smile on your face when you wear them. Plus, nothing is better than someone approaching you and asking where you got that suit.

The Jungly print is bold, with a colorful jungle print on a black background. This full-cut brief is a high-performance swim brief with eco-friendly features–it’s made of recycled polyester (86% recycled polyester, 14% lycra) with microfiber technology, guaranteeing fast drying and color resistance. Plus, it offers effective UV protection.

The best thing about the new Ikakos line is that the prints come in both swim briefs and shorts. You can buy both and go to the beach and do your Peel & Reveal! I love having matching shorts and briefs. It’s just super fun for me to do that and you will turn some heads when you drop the shorts to a matching swim brief.

You can get the Jungly Swim Brief at the Ikakos site for $54.95.

Wayne is a company that has burst onto the underwear/swimwear scene and has such a unique point of view. They aren’t afraid to show their take on underwear and Swimwear. I chose the Wayne Bali Buckle Swim Brief for this week’s Swimwear Sunday.

I chose this because of a few reasons. First is the style. It has a buckle on the side. There have been a few buckle pairs on the market, but I think their buckle is new and innovative. The second reason is the design. The mix of the prints and solids is fantastic. The color combo pops and looks impressive; it’s one of my favorite combos in a long time!

This is what Wayne says about the pair:

The Wayne Bali Buckled Speedo is your new essential for Beach season with a pallet of Tropical colors and adorned with accents in pink and white. This speedo is made with our highest quality materials, allowing it to dry as quickly as possible. Featuring a secured sexy buckle on the side, you won’t have to worry about any embarrassing slips when walking on the beach or diving into the pool

Get the Bali Buckle at Wayne Underwear

PAIR: Bali Buckle Speedo – Wayne Underwear
COLOR: As shown
FABRIC: 83% Nylon, 17% Spandex
SIZES: Small – X-Large
PRICE: $36.00

It’s Swimwear Sunday and time for something super sexy. I debated on what to put up today. I wanted something sexy but not a thong because not every guy wants to rock a thong. I wanted something a little more over the top and remembered this amazing pair from Wayne Underwear. The Bali Buckle is perfect for a guy who wants to show skin but not show it all off.

Things that I really love about this pair are:

  • The colors – the tropical main print is awesomely mixed in with the pink and white.
  • The clip – the side clip makes it easy to take on and off – Perfect pair to wear to a nude beach for fun in the sun, get the tan line and take it off before getting in the water.
  • The Cut – It’s a smaller cut swim brief. It’s a little over 1 inch sides.

Here is what Wayne says about the pair:

The Wayne Bali Buckled Speedo is your new essential for Beach season with a pallet of Tropical colors and adorned with accents in pink and white. This speedo is made with our highest quality materials, allowing it to dry as quickly as possible. Featuring a secured sexy buckle on the side, you won’t have to worry about any embarrassing slips when walking on the beach or diving into the pool.

Swimwear season is in high gear; we just had our annual swim party/fundraiser Joining Hearts in Atlanta. Many of you have been to plenty of pool parties and have quite a few more to attend this season. It’s time to refresh the swim drawer. One brand you should consider is Aronik.

A classic black bikini is always a win with most guys. You can’t go wrong with it, and it also looks great on many skin tones. Plus, you don’t have to worry about matching with anything cause black goes with everything. This pair is the Perdition bikini and has a smaller cut than many other pairs offered by Aronik. It’s about a one-inch side and a full back. I think this is a great bikini for many of you brief lovers out here. I know the full-back is a criterion for many guys they don’t want a half or Rio cut back.

Don’t worry if you want something with more coverage Aronik has plenty of other pairs that are equally as fun. But I think this pair will be popular with many of you. However, I must warn you this is part of “luxury swimwear.” The price is $95 for this brief.

Pair: Aronik Perdition Bikini
Color: Black
Fabric: TBA
Sizes: Small – X-Large
Pride: $95.00

It’s Swimwear Sunday! I wanted to pick a really fun pair for today. I turned to MCE Creations because they have one of my favorite pairs from last year. That pair is the Palm Dreams Swim Brief, I love the colors of the print. I checked out this year’s collection and I am blown away by how creative and fun these new swim briefs are. This Sunday I chose the Transcendent swim brief.

This pair has a really amazing print that celebrates Trans Pride (it’s the same color as the Trans pride flag). But I think even without that you guys would love the print. These colors are just a lot of fun and the print is sort of an ink blot that is so much fun! I would love to wear this pair out this summer. I haven’t tried their swimwear yet but really want to!

The second best thing is that MCE Creations go up to larger sizes. Means you don’t have to have a 36 waist or smaller to wear it. They are inclusive to everyone regardless of waist size. I have this issue with a lot of brands out there!

I hope you guys will check out this pair and more from MCE Creations.

PAIR: Transcendent swim brief
COLOR: As Pictured
FABRIC: polyester/spandex blend
SIZES: Small – 2XL
PRICE: $33.00

It’s the 4th of July weekend! It’s time to put on your best red/white and blue swimwear and celebrate. I know the last few weeks have been rough for many communities out there but it’s not the time to give up. Break out your most patriotic swimwear and go enjoy the day because we will prevail!

I love this pair because of the design. Half of the pair is red and white stripes and the other half is blue with white stars. It’s one of my favorite designs for a patriotic swim brief ever. Some of the flag prints are over the top but this one is a new take that just is a lot of fun.

One thing you should know about the brand: ” Banana Briefs run slightly tighter due to the sports cut. We recommend sizing up 1-2 sizes. So if your waist size is a 31in and you have a bigger 🍌 or 🍑 then go with a 34in. For more information check out our Size Guide” Just to make sure you get the right sizing.

PAIR: Banana Wear Freeballer USA
COLORS: Print as seen
FABRIC: PBT/Polyester Blend Fabric with Four-way stretch technology
SIZES: 28-44 inches
PRICE: $49.00

We couldn’t have a Swimwear Sunday without a thong! One brand that most thongers swear by is Skinzwear. I have a pair of Skinzwear, and I will say they make damn good thongs, and this is from a guy who doesn’t wear thongs regularly. I have this same style in black, and it’s one of the best thongs I have ever owned.

I picked the Stuffit Pouch Thong in Super ThinSKINZ Tiger. First, because of the tiger print, it’s sexy and fun! Second, I think this is a true thong style that most guys love to wear. I want to get more of these, so I will be prepared with a few different styles when I go thonging with my thong brothers (Andy, Erik, Stevie, and more).

Here are the features of this pair:

  • Tanning thong for men
  • Low volume (Stuffit) pouch
  • Seamed for a contour fit of the mans package
  • Very Low Front
  • Low back
  • Unlined

One thing that makes this an amazing pair is the sizing. The sizing goes from XXS – XXXL. This pair can be worn by guys of all sizes. This is one thing I love about Skinzwear. So may other companies need to expand their sizing for all guys can wear what they feel sexy in.

PAIR: Skinzwear Stuffit Pouch Thong in Super ThinSKINZ Tiger
COLOR: Tiger Print (others available)
FABRIC: Poly-Spandex
PRICE: $35 (XXS & XXXL $10 extra)

This Swimwear Sunday, I wanted a pair that was a little skimpier and a little more fun. I sorted through many brands before finding the perfect pair, Jack Adams Kai Mana Swim Tanga. It’s got some bright and bold colors, and the design is a little smaller than the previous pairs we have featured. Next week we will feature a. swim thong (I almost came close today to feature one).

Here is what Jack Adams says about the line:

The body defining Kai Mana swim tanga is super comfortable and a sexy minimalistic take on traditional men’s swimsuits. The fabric is soft to the touch and offers a second skin fit to the body as well as UPF 50+ sun protection. It has a low rise, falling below the natural waist, and features a metal O-ring detail at the covered elastic waistband

The four colors of this pair are Lime/Yellow, Grey/Orange, Pink/Yellow, and Yellow/Royal. Each pair features a metal O-ring that show’s off a little more skin! It’s for the guy who wants to show off without showing it all off!

Why did I choose this pair for Swimwear Sunday:

  • I wanted something smaller and a little more fun. I think there is a time and place for a classic cut and a smaller cut.
  • The pink/yellow pair really caught my eye. This is an amazing color combination and I know many of you out there will love it as well. It will draw attention to you on the beach or pool.
  • It’s on the pricy side and I almost didn’t choose it but I think this feature is to show off swimwear and not be limited by price. The retail price is $86.50

PAIR: Jack Adams Kai Mana Swim Tanga.
COLORS: Lime/Yellow, Grey/Orange, Pink/Yellow, and Yellow/Royal
FABRIC: 82% Polyester, 18% Elastane. UV 50+ protective. 
SIZES: Small – X-Large
PRICE: $86.50

It’s SWIMWEAR SUNDAY. We are bringing this feature back after a hiatus due to the pandemic. We are starting to live life again and we definitely need some fun in the sun. Every Sunday we will focus on something fun, hot, and sometimes different. This week I wanted to profile a pair for Pride month by a company local to me in Atlanta, I chose MCE Creations and their Malibu Swim Brief.

I chose the Malibu Brief because first, it’s an amazing pair. I mean the pink and bright colors will make you stand out where ever you are! Next, pink is becoming one of the more popular colors of swimwear. Guys are not afraid to wear super bright pink in public. Which I think is awesome, we have loved pink undies but now we are letting everyone know pink is for everyone.

Some of the features of this pair are:

  • polyester/spandex blend
  • extra stretch for lift and comfort
  • draw strings to adjust tightness for security and comfort

If you love The Malibu Swim Brief as much as I do, check it out on the MCE Creations site and it’s just $35.

We are bringing back our Swimwear Sunday segment! This is a post where we profile a pair of swimwear you guys should check out. It’s perfect for your next trip to the beach or pool. The first pair we are going to share is the Todd Sanfield Shallow Swim Brief in Discus.

I have tried and LOVED, Todd’s underwear. it’s some of the most well-made and comfy on the market. He really pays attention to small details and how underwear fits on a guy. His swimwear I’m sure is just as amazing as his underwear.

The reason I chose this pair is the print. The Shallow Swim Brief comes in many prints and solids but my eye is drawn to this print! I love the mix of orange and blue, it will stand out in a crowd. The Shallow Swim Brief is a smaller cut brief but still has a full back.

Here are some reasons we chose this pair this week:

  • Comes in amazing prints – including this print pictured here
  • The cut is a full-back but not too small.
  • Made of quick-drying material
  • Todd makes amazing gear that fits incredible

COLOR: Discus
SIZES: X-Small – X-Large

Its the end of swim season in the states. Labor Day weekend marks the end of the season. Most summer vacations are done and you get ready for fall and the holidays. Being this is the last Swimwear Sunday I wanted something super fun for this one. It was not an easy task. I looked through tons of swimwear. I wanted something fun and that would send Swimwear Sunday out with a bang.

One thing I LOVE right now is Flamingos. I love the prints that I have seen in men’s swimwear. One brand that really did the Flamingo print awesome is CaRioCa Wear. They didn’t go over the top but made it more classic. Granted I love both over the top and classic. The Flamingo Rosa bikinis awesome. It is always available in their classic styles as well. You can always get the Sunga if you want a bit more coverage.

Another reason I chose them is their quality. I have a pair of their swim and it’s made out of amazing material. When you take the first pair out of the package, you will immediately feel this is not your normal swimwear. It’s a brand that is worth spending $60-90 a pair. These will last more than one season!

We hope you all wore something great this year and got a few pairs of swimwear. Don’t stop buying them because this feature goes away. We will also cover new swim as it’s released over the next few months. However, this feature will not be back till April of next year. Go shop some awesome swimwear from CARIOCA Wear.

We have just one more Swimwear Sunday this year! The unofficial end of swim season is fast approaching, Labor Day. After the holiday there are less and fewer trips to the beach! It’s time to prepare for fall and winter. That doesn’t mean we won’t cover new swimwear for the rest of the year but it will no longer be a regular feature. Swimwear Sunday will start back up in April of 2019.

This week’s pair is one of the classics of men’s swimwear! The N2N Bodywear University Sport Brief. This line has been in N2N Bodywear for a long time! It’s has included a swim brief, jammer, and thong. All inspired by the University colors! While not a specific school you can adapt it to fit your favorite school.

Some of the features of the pair are:

  • Contour pouch
  • Back branding
  • Outer drawcord
  • Unlined

It’s one of the best selling pairs at N2N. I have no evidence of this but being in the collection for so many years it would follow reason it would be a great seller. There are three colors on this pair that make it a very eye-catching design. The pouch is one of the best, N2N really knows how to make a pouch. Many of my favorite swimwear is from them just because of this reason!

This year’s selection is a little more subtle. In the past, they have been blue, maroon and more. Sometimes you just gotta mix it up! The black is always a great choice for the beach. The little black swim brief is a look you can never go wrong with!

If you need some swimwear before the end of the year, check out the N2N Bodywear University Sport Brief.

Swimwear Sunday is all about swimwear. I love it when I get to tell you about new brands. We have profiled GymSwim a few times but their store is now open. They are based out of Europe. GymSwim was founded by  Dušan Chrástek and David Přikryl and have created this project. “It was created for men who like sports and who search comfortable, functional and sexy clothing. Both of us fell in love with fitness lifestyle more than 10 years ago and practice it on a regular basis.”

The pair I chose was the Cosmic Push Up Brief in orange. The design is definitely a brief, more of a bikini if we are specific. They say this pair is designed for avid swimmers or guys who swim on occasion. But there is more to this pair than meets the eye. There are some things I really love about this pair.

The first thing is the pouch. It’s designed to push up and show off all your manhood. Some of you out there this is not something you want, but I bet as many who don’t want it, we have guys who love these suits. They say the.. “The front pouch is unlined with a push-up effect. As a bonus in the back of the swimsuit is a practical strap to hang them.” Ok, what was that about the back? They have a strap to hang them on? GENUIS. How many times have you had swim briefs and just put them over the shower rod or hung them from the cold/hot water lever?

As you can tell by the pics it’s going to give you support. Their site says your assets will never touch your legs. That’s some support! I’m glad they came on the market and are making amazing swimwear! See more gear including swim thongs at their site.

Every year we get questions about where people can find a Tanga in the States. The style is very similar to a string bikini. A tanga has no fabric on the sides other than the waistband. I would say, currently this style is not huge in the US, but it has it’s hardcore fans. aussieBum is also, no stranger to making sexy swimwear.

The Tanga swim bikini is for the true exhibitionist. Made from a fine nylon elastane blend, this new shape fits like a dream and shows off every asset in just the way you want. Experience it now in five bold colours.

As aussieBum says this is for the guy who wants to show off. It leaves very little to the imagination. Let’s be serious, if you’re going to be rocking this pair, you want to be seen and be the center of attention. It comes in four colors, blue, red, black, and white. White is for the really bold guy because white has a tendency to show off a lot more when wet. I’m not sure if this is lined or not.

One of the surprises of the pair is the cost, it’s about $25. Which is very reasonable for swimwear. I think this is in the sweet spot for many guys that have been seeking this style. Plus, being from aussieBum, they are a name you can trust for quality and construction.

If you have been after this pair, get one or a few now!

Pair: aussieBum Tanga
Color: Black, Blue/Navy, Red, and White
Fabric: nylon elastane blend

Swimwear season here is slowly coming to an end, but for Aussie brand Tribe, it’s about to start up. Some of you guys have requested that Swimwear Sunday not always show briefs. This is a trunk and a pretty impressive one as well. The Saint Tropez is a suit that looks classic from the front but has something interesting in the back.

The back is a white background with stripes. However, the stripes just aren’t random, they line up in a chevron pattern. It’s set at a 45-degree angle. Which is very hard to do in manufacturing, but Tribe pulls it off amazingly. I really love the back and they did an amazing job designing and producing this pair!

It comes in three different colors. The colors are black, red and navy. It’s hard to pick the one I like the most. The one we are showing is the Navy. Made 80% Nylon & 20% Elastane fabric and the front is fully lined as well. You won’t be disappointed with this pair on the beach or at the pool.

This is a great pair for those of you who still want to show off a little but not totally go in on a swim brief. It could be your comfort level or the situation. Any of the colors would be great to wear on the beach. Plus, if you’re uneasy about rocking the brief to start, this is a great step between the shorts and briefs. It gives you the look of a short but the fit of a brief.

Check out all the amazing pairs at Tribe. I don’t think many guys out there know of the brad. They are an amazing brand more US guys need to know about!

Pair: Tribe Saint Tropez

Las Vegas is one of my favorite cities on the planet. It’s a city that is always on the go and never stays the same. Come back six months after your visit and things are different. One thing that stays the same is the most iconic things in Las Vegas is the Welcome to Las Vegas sign! When you mix Las Vegas and swimwear, I consider it a total win.

A new company to UNB is Medinna. It’s a brand out of Columbia that I discovered on Instagram. I”m telling you, if you love gear and you’re not on Instagram you are missing out! Their designs have always been amazing but when I saw this one, I was blown away. Just like Vegas, this pair is over the top. I mean, the bright colors and prints behind the Las Vegas sign are fully to be expected!

This is a full cut swim brief. Meaning that it’s about 2-3 inches on the side. The back is a fullback and not the “Rio” cut. I mean with this print you don’t need to show off any more skin. A ton of eyes will be on you at the pool/beach. But it you wear this pair you’re not looking to be low key! It’s over the top, bright and just fun!

We can’t always go middle of the road on swimwear. We need to blow it out sometimes. Show you guys something super fun! Swimwear should always be fun and make you feel super sexy. If I wore this on the beach I would hope it would gain attention! If Las Vegas isn’t your town they also have swim briefs for New York, Hollywood and Miami! But be warned they are just as fun as this pair!
