Men’s swimwear : a matter of style

Home 9 Man 9 Men’s swimwear : a matter of style

And no gentlemen, it’s not only for the ladies that choosing a swimsuit has become a real headache ! At the beach or at the pool, it will undoubtedly be the garment that you will wear the most this summer. It is therefore essential to choose it with care. Today, the models of swimsuits for men are no longer limited to the simple swim trunks or the long Bermuda shorts Billabong, a multitude of options is offered to you. Here’s a quick overview…

A swimsuit that fits your body type

Gentlemen, the choice of your swimsuit will not be made according to your weight but according to your measurements. Ditch the surfer shorts you wore when you were 16 (unless you’re a real surfer and have a whole range of stylish swimsuits!) or the swim trunks reserved for competitive swimmers, and opt for a swimsuit with a real snug fit.
That was for the width. As for the length, it will differ depending on your body type:

For muscular men, the short mid-thigh, boxer style swimsuit will show off your work. If you have a V-shaped figure, then there is no question: everything suits you!
For men with a slim figure, a swimsuit that reaches 2/3 of the way up the thigh will work for you because it will help you overcome the fact that you don’t go to the gym or that you have a long/thin body;
For those who like to live life to the fullest, an above-the-knee swimsuit, boardshort style, will be the right solution, but not below! This could cause your figure to shrink.

That’s how to choose a swimsuit according to your physique. Now let’s see how to choose one based on your style.

A practical swimsuit that looks like you

A swimsuit should reflect your personality and reveal your body at its best. Stop saying that they all look pretty much the same and don’t choose its color randomly. You can choose a classic color like navy, khaki or burgundy, which is both elegant and discreet if you don’t like to draw attention to yourself. A pastel colored swimsuit, which reflects the softness of the sunny days, can also be an honorable choice: if you tan quickly, adopt yellow or orange, but pink and sky blue (contrary to popular belief), are also soft and fun colors! Finally, you can choose a swimsuit with a print whose originality will undoubtedly cause a sensation during your beach-volleyball or beach-soccer games.
Don’t neglect the practical aspect of your swimsuit either: it’s best to choose one with pockets that are neither too deep nor too shallow and that close, preferably. Avoid snaps that could give you bad surprises with the pressure of the waves and prefer velcro. If you are a surfer and you spend your life in a swimsuit, I advise you to go and have a look here: it could be useful if any irritation comes to disturb your summer!
Don’t forget to choose your flip-flops for the summer!

If you take into account all these little tips, you are destined to have a beautiful summer but above all don’t forget to be yourself!
