Best Swim Briefs for Men: History, Benefits and Style Tips

The Ultimate Guide to Men’s Swim Briefs - Learn Why & How to Rock Them

You know what’s better than swim trunks? Swim briefs. Yes, you heard me right. They are comfortable, sexy and super fun. Whether you are hitting the beach, the pool or the lake, you will turn heads and make waves with swim briefs.

Do you want to feel confident and comfortable in your swimwear? If you answered yes, then you need to keep reading and I’ll make a convert out of you with some amazing facts and tips!

I designed these swim briefs because I wanted to share my love for this style of swimwear that I had since I was a toddler. I remember wearing speedos and feeling free and comfortable at the beach, without worrying about what others thought. As an adult, I found it hard to find swim briefs that fit me well, so I decided to create my own. I don’t think swim briefs are too revealing or inappropriate, and I don’t agree with the masculine stigmas that discourage men from wearing them. I think these stigmas are based on outdated and insecure notions of what it means to be a man, and they limit our choices and freedom. Why settle for bulky wet shorts that take forever to dry when a smart swim brief can solve those problems.

I think swim briefs are a great way to express yourself and enjoy the water, and I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

But before I tell you why these swim briefs are the best, let me take you on a journey through the history of swim briefs. You might be surprised to learn how they have evolved over time and become a fashion statement for many men.

The History of Swim Briefs

  • Swim briefs are a variation of briefs, which were first sold in 1935 by Coopers, Inc. (now known as Jockey International), in Chicago, Illinois.
  • Swim briefs became popular in competitive swimming, diving and water polo, especially after the Australian brand Speedo introduced them in 1960.
  • Swim briefs were also worn by recreational swimmers and celebrities, such as Sean Connery in the James Bond films and David Beckham in his underwear ads.
  • Swim briefs have been making a comeback in recent years, as more men embrace their body confidence and style.

  • Choose the right size and fit. Your swim briefs should fit snugly but not too tightly. You should be able to move comfortably without feeling restricted or uncomfortable. Avoid sagging or bulging.
  • Choose the right color and print. Your swim briefs should match your skin tone and personality. You can go for solid colors or funky prints depending on your mood and occasion. Avoid clashing or boring colors. Remember, a tan goes a long way!
  • Choose the right accessories. Your swim briefs should be complemented by other items that enhance your look. Add sunglasses, hats, flip-flops, watches, bracelets, etc. Avoid overdoing or underdoing it.
