A Look Back on Summer 2020
Wasn’t quite as much beach time as I thought may occur this year with all the restrictions in place for other activities we usually try over the summer. We did do slightly better than our 1 to 2 trips in the past. Not by much, but they were a bit different. I’ll go a little more in depth on them in a bit. There was quite a bit of time spent in the kid/family pool this summer too, so I did get a decent amount of swim bikini brief time.
We had some nice weather in May, so we got things started off a little early in the yard. The hose was broken out for some hose water fighting to help beat the humid heat. Soon after that the kids wanted to wash the cars, which came with a little surprise. I started with getting the hose from out back of the house. When I was coming around towards the driveway I heard my son say hi to someone. To my surprise there was the Fedex guy with a package. He handed it to me and said have a good day. Didn’t notice it phasing him seeing me in an aussieBum 1.5 Classic swim brief. I may have seemed more surprised than him. It was the first time someone has come upon me at the house when I was sporting a swim brief. The rest of the summer was uneventful at the house.
Now our first beach trip of the summer was to our normal beach, which is typically less crowded than other lifeguarded beaches. On the day we went it was the busiest it has ever been the times we have gone to it. We weren’t sure if it was due to less places to go because of covid-19 or that it was a couple days before the 4th of July weekend. Either way it was on the busy side. As usual we picked a spot in the guarded section of the beach. Of course we made sure we social distanced though we like to leave plenty of room anyhow. Then I did my normal routine. Set up our area, remove the sandals, shirt, and drop the shorts. This trip I revealed to the beach goers my Speedo Shoreline swim brief in black (pretty much the same as the Speedo Solar). We spent 3 hours or so there. A lot of the time was spent in the water making it hard to get much sun on the needed areas. Though I got enough that it gave slight swim brief tan lines mainly up front and not the rear.
Our second trip didn’t quite go as planned. It started off with a late start. Then we got to our normal beach and it was parked full. So to answer our question from our last trip about busyness, it must be because of the lack of places to go due to the virus. Plus some of the more popular beaches were limiting the numbers in the parking lot. With it parked full we headed to the next beach with facilities and lifeguards, which has more parking. This beach was busier than our normal one, which is typical for this one. It’s also a narrower one, but we were able to find a social distance spot in the guarded area.
Like our normal beach it had similar beach goers. A few more in the teenage and college age, but also had families and a variety of ages of adults. We know I was the only guy in a swim brief, but quite a few young females in Brazilian like to 3/4ish bottoms. There has been a couple times when I seemed to have the smallest suit on the beach in the past. So I’m always happy when there are females joining in on smaller bottoms even if they are the younger ones.
Why am I talking a bit more about swim suit size? I decided not to go with a Speedo Solar this time and kick it up a slight notch. Not a big notch, but to a suit that is probably the skimpiest I’ll wear at the local beach. I went with my Kiniki Riviera swim bikini in royal blue over my black pair. The sides are pretty close to the Speedo solar, but the pouch is a tad bit narrower than the solar. The wife was able to spot the difference with a bit of whiteness from the slight tan from our first trip. The back is where things step up a bit. It is a ¾ back cut though I’d lean it towards a conservative one. Still more cheek showing than the solar. So far this trip was the most people I have introduced to my swim bikini brief wearing. Along with it being the smallest suit I’ve worn locally.
On our third and final trip, I decided to go back to a Speedo solar in black. It’s one from before they went to the lycra xtra life. This trip we got to the beach we typically hit. The parking lot was fairly bare, which we thought it was because we got there a little earlier than our other times. We set up between two lifeguard chairs, but when noon rolled around no lifeguards showed up. Guess that explained the less crowded beach than the last two trips. Other contributions could be some school districts started along with colleges. With no lifeguards it meant no swimming. That worked out fine with the water being rougher than the kids have been there for. They did have a good time playing slightly in the water with the waves. It was also nice we didn’t have to worry much about social distancing. No guessing needed on the smallest suit of the guys. Actually I beat out most of the females the majority of the time on this trip. Wasn’t until closer to the time we left when a group of probably tweens came that were wearing bikinis. Also a little before them showing up, a young lady walked by in a dress cover up. She walked on down the beach past us a ways before removing it. Her reveal was of a red bikini suit that I’ll call a Brazilian back (definitely approaching on a thong), so she won the skimpiest suit for that beach.
Sadly with the amount of time I spent in a swim brief, I didn’t get much sun to darken up the thighs and bikini area much. Really it seems I only got a little color from the sun on my whiter areas on our first beach trip. I did at least introduce a lot more people to a guy in swim bikini briefs than in previous summers. Hopefully, it enlightened some people that guys can wear that type of swimwear. If we’re lucky, even encourage a guy to at least think about it or a woman to suggest giving it a try to their guy. Probably wishful thinking, but that is about all we can do to try and get more guys in them. How did everyone else’s summer work out this year? Did you break out against the norm swimsuit this wear for the first time? Go a bit skimpier with the pair you wore? Move from swim briefs/bikinis to thongs? Let us know.
