At some point in the past someone’s comment inspired me to make a note about doing a post on my swimwear collection. So I thought I’d go over what’s in my drawer now and where I believe I feel most comfortable wearing them. Right now there are 26 suits remaining in my drawer after recently clearing it out some. Guess I’ll start with conservative and work my way down. Here’s the groups. If I reviewed the pair, I linked them to my review though some are no longer available.
There is still a pair of red swim trunks in the drawer, which I’ll save you from a picture of them. They are above the knees, but shorter above the knees than my last pair. Still could use shorter ones, but at least these are being worn less. Mainly they get worn for parent and child swim class, water parks, and possibly with my kids’ friends and their families. Community pool may go to the swim brief, but the verdict is still out. Don’t think we’ll be going to one this year to find out.
This one I’m not sure where it fits into the swimwear wearing. I got it because I was thinking it would be a stepping stone from trunks to swim briefs, but didn’t go that direction. I guess it can be the whenever I feel like something different one. This is a pair of the Prevail Sport’s Boxcut.
The next ones feature around 3” sides. In this group I have an aussieBum XS swim brief
and probably a knock off one of their swim briefs I got off ebay. These I see are kind of my introduction swim brief options for people. Possible option for community pool break in too. These were two I was considering for the family trip, but decided with the Slugger Classic one. It sort of fits in this group too, but put it in the next group.
This group is what I’m seeing as my regular swim brief wearers. Basically I have 5 pairs of the Speedo 1” solars
, an aussieBum 1.5 Classic
and their Surge swim brief
, and the Sluggers classic swim brief
. These are the ones I’ll typically choose from for the beach and hopefully they will also become for the pool too. Basically all sides are less than 2”. One of each style besides my new Sluggers have made an appearance at the local beach. I’ve been pretty comfortable wearing them in public.
In my next group, we have two Kiniki Rivieras
, a HOM Alize
, and an Adidas swim brief. These ones are on my option list for the local beach. They are a little more revealing than my go to ones for the local beach. I have worn the HOM one at the beach on my Honeymoon. The Adidas and HOM show VPL a little more with their flat fronts. Then with the Rivieras, they have a little less coverage all the way around. I still feel these should all be appropriate for me to wear at my local beaches.
These aussieBum 1.5 loose fit swim briefs
are ones I think will be more for a public sunning options. With them not having elastic in the waistband, I don’t feel comfortable wearing them in the water. I like the color combination on them is why I got them. The red has a bit of sheerness when wet, so not really a good family beach option for getting in the water either.
Now on to some skimpier cuts of bikini. In this group I have my favorite swim brief cut in the HOM micro brief. I also have it in a black and blue pouch with a black back that I wear sunning in the backyard. Then another one I really like the fit of is the Dietz Traxx swim brief
. The light bluish greenish one I got from Undergear is the Tactics Greek swim brief
. The green one is one I got off ebay, which I think is some China brand. I don’t see me wearing these ones to the local beaches here. The HOM and Dietz pair I would like to break out a beach somewhere.
Up next we have my skimpiest bikinis. We have the Tactics Buns string bikini
and the Kiniki’s Cobra half back bikini. These I definitely don’t see being worn at my local beach. May be potential away from the crowds at the right beach away from the hometown.
Finally we have a couple thongs in the drawer. Not legal to wear locally and don’t know if I’ll take the step wearing a thong in public or not. They are at least an option in the swim drawer if an opportunity arises. The thong options I have are a HOM thong and the other is Kiniki’s St. Tropez thong
There might be some others floating around, but those were the ones I actually pulled out of the swimwear drawer. As you can see prints are lacking from my swimwear, which will be what I aim to add to the collection with future purchases.
