UNB Ryan recommendation: The Skinzwear Adjustable Pouch G-String was one of the first minimal suits I ever wore, and my wife actually bought me one to wear on our honeymoon many years ago. This one, in particular, was a custom design I had made and have been more than happy with. Skinzwear makes a quality suit that can be worn by anyone, almost anywhere (at least anywhere that they aren’t against the law!)
Today I am reviewing a suit that I had custom made by Skinzwear-the suit is their tiniest G-Sting available, the adjustable pouch G-String (M1R2U.) I am a long time customer of the Skinzwear brand. The first pair I bought was in my early 20s and my wife even bought me a Skinzwear G-String that I wore on our honeymoon in Jamaica. I’ve always loved the fit and construction from Skinzwear, and every time I order a new pair I am amazed at the endless customization options available. The pair I am reviewing was right up my alley, tiny and vibrant!
I have worn this suit out on the beaches of NC, and several times while on outings in our boat. The suit is made of a fabric that isn’t quite as stretchy as I am used to, and as such it is better suited for tanning than more active undertakings. The fabric feels wonderful against the skin and leaves very little to the imagination. The Thinskinz fabric hugs super close to your skin, and shows off your package, especially when wet! I have also worn this suit on a few occasions under my clothes while in transit to the beach, so I can also attest that they would work as underwear if you like!
Skinzwear has also offered exceptional quality in both the durability and style departments. I have never had any problems with the suits I have ordered from them, and I have a few pairs that are 10+ years old that still look brand new. The fabrics show minimal signs of fading or wear, even after using for multiple seasons. The pouch is tiny on this suit, and also is adjustable for tanning. I love that Skinzwear offers almost endless customization options on their website. You can combine elements from one style to another, chose multiple fabric/color options, and they will even recreate an older style for you if you send a suit in to them, even if they didn’t make it for you.
As far as sizing goes, Skinzwear is a little bit on the larger side for me. I normally wear a small, but in Skinzwear I could probably get into an extra small. Also, many of their cuts are a little higher than the styles I am accustomed to wearing, so that could be why they don’t feel as familiar to me in the larger cuts. Skinzwear does offer a larger range of sizes than about any designer that I’ve seen, ranging from an XXS-XXXL.
To recap, Skinzwear has something for everyone, even for the ladies. You can have so much fun with their customization options, make matching or contrasting suits for you and your partner, and experiment with fabrics and colors that you won’t find anywhere else. I encourage you to try one of their thong or G-String styles, especially if you are new to wearing minimal swimwear in public. You will be able to find something in a cut you are comfortable in, even if you have never worn anything other than a pair of shorts on the beach before!
