Are Swim Thongs the Next Big Thing in Men’s Swimwear?
Over the last two years, the popularity of thongs has grown. It also shows no signs of slowing down. Across all guys (gay, straight or bi) seem to be wearing them for underwear. However, will this carry over to the world of swimwear? I’m not saying that every guy will be sporting a thong but the popularity will increase.
Swim thongs have been very popular among a small set of men. They are very passionate about the style and have had meet ups in Palm Springs and other areas. While it was mainly gay guys, the style is growing among all men. We are starting to see new thong swimwear from JOR and new company Cockpit Undies (More on them soon!).
Unlike swim briefs, thongs leave a bit less to the imagination. Your assets are on display for all to see. Some guys this is a benefit, while other see this as a deal breaker. I have worn them years ago but I don’t have much in the asset department. When I did wear them, they were a lot of fun to wear. I never wore them at a pool party or beach. It was pretty much at a private pool.
The benefits of a swim thong, yes there are benefits! Thongs have less material than swim briefs and shorts. It allows for a much greater freedom of movement. Many of you guys talk about how you hate shorts in water. They never dry and feel like you’re swimming with rocks. With a thong, you have neither of these issues. Also, you get a more all over tan. This is good if you hate tan lines. Lastly, it’s as bare as you can dare on many beaches.
Would I wear them now? Honestly, it’s a maybe. It would have to be in a thong friendly environment. It wouldn’t be a local pool or beach. It would have other men of all shapes and sizes wearing them. As more thongs come out for swimwear, we will let you guys know!
Would you wear a swim thong?
