Wearing a Swim Brief in Front of Family
A few weeks back I wrote a post about the opportunity that was coming up to break out the swim brief in front of family for the first time. There was quite a bit of responses to that post of many that have worn against the norm swimwear in front of family members and of course encouragement for me to go for it. Well, that vacation has occurred and guess it is a little bit of a mixed verdict of success.
This vacation wasn’t one that had a lot of time to spend at the house’s pool. Even the planned rest day at the house didn’t leave much pool time. The first chance for me to break out the swim brief was a bit on the late side with it getting dark, but my daughter wanted to go in the pool. So we got her changed first. I didn’t go with the idea of leaving the trunks at home, so I had to make the decision on what to wear. They wife said it was up to me. So I made the logical decision. I pulled out my new swim brief from Sluggers and slipped it on.
That was the easy part. Next was having the confidence to walk from our room to the pool. That required walking through the main living area of the house. By the time we headed that way most everyone else seemed to have headed out of that area besides my mother. Somehow she didn’t seem to notice us walking by or at least didn’t look up from what she was doing to acknowledge us. Once my daughter and I were in the pool she did come out with the camera, so at least heard us go out. It was dark outside, so don’t know how well you could see what I was wearing in the pool. Eventually we were joined in the pool by my dad, aunt, and my son. Then my in-laws came out and sat on the patio. I have no clue if anyone knew I was wearing a swim brief or not. Pictures were taken of us in the pool, but I haven’t seen them. There was no comments made to confirm it or not. Everyone left before I got out, since my son wanted to play longer with not getting in as soon as everyone else.
The following day we had another chance for late pool time again. Basically the same drill as before other than my son joined from the beginning. We got ready in our room and then head out through the main living area. When we headed through the main living area, no one was there nor in the pool area. When in the pool most people made an appearance on the patio, but again no clue if anyone other than my wife and kids knew I had on the swim brief.
The last pool time on our trip was on our rest day at the house, which still ended up being a late swim after dark. Again it was the same drill though this time the kids changed in their room and I changed in my wife’s and mine. When I walked out the door my mother was walking out of the kid’s room directly across from ours. Surprisingly she said nothing and no way she didn’t notice I had a swim brief on. Then when we headed out to the swimming pool, my Mom and brother were sitting in the main living area. They both saw what I was wearing. I heard nothing about it from either of them. Not surprised my brother didn’t say anything. Only other person that joined us in the pool this time besides my wife was my Dad. He must have noticed I was wearing a swim brief too unless his eyes are that bad without his glasses. I was out of the pool to get into the hot tub when he was out there. Again he’s not really one I would think would have said anything about it in the first place.
So everyone at the house had an opportunity to see me in a swim brief. No clue for sure how many actually noticed with me being in the pool besides my mother and brother for sure. So that is why I’m calling it a mix verdict for success. It was a success wearing a swim brief for sure. Guess it was a success of my Mom not commenting on my swimwear choice considering her comment when a box from Speedo came when I was in college. I’m just happy I just went for it and wore the swim brief to enjoy the pool on vacation.
