Swimwear Sunday – CARIOCA Rio 2016 Games Sunga


The 2016 games in Rio are about to kick off. There will be plenty of swimming, diving, gymnastics and more for us to binge on. What is a good way to celebrate the games? You could watch them on TV or if you’re lucky enough to attend them in person! If you can’t do the later show your support with swimwear.

Each Games they produce suits for each games. I remember when the games were here in Atlanta. I bought an official US suit with the games logo on it. I wore it a few times and then retired it. I still have it in one of my drawers. The games also inspires other brands to create limited edition suits as well. Its a great time to shop for suits!

What better way to celebrate the games than with this CA-RIO-CA Rio 2016 games suit! The Sunga is a traditional swimwear of Brazil. It’s made similar to a swim brief but a bit bigger. CA-RIO-CA says that Sunga is the Brazilian word for men’s swimwear. Sungas are made from heavier nylon and are cut to form a nearly horizontal band across the body. Take note that there is no built-in pouch. The slouch of the suit will create a pouch.

The Rio 2016 Games suit is inspired by the Rio games logo. It’s a white background with their take on the logo. I really love the design of this suit. It’s definitely one you will remember on the beach. Plus you will be showing your support for the game.
