AussieBum Classic 1.5 Swim Brief

AussieBum Classic 1.5 Swim BriefI’ve been wanting to get my hands on a pair of AussieBum Classic 1.5 swim brief for some time now. I bite the bullet during their one sale at the end of the year and now it is time to review it. I did order up a size from what I normally do based on recommendations and it was a good thing I did otherwise it probably wouldn’t have fit. The swim brief is made out of 100% nylon, so it doesn’t have a lot of stretch to it. Ordering it in the size large was right for me, since it is a nice snug fit like they should be. The other thing to watch with the nylon is that lighter colors are going to have a sheer factor with the nylon being a light fabric. The swim bikini is pretty much full frontal and back cover, but with 1 1/2″ sides. It has a flat front wide V pouch, which is two layers of nylon and the back is just one layer. The brief features a flat drawstring for added security. It has an AussieBum tag logo on the left hip seam. You can get the logo on the back if you like, but I chose not to. AussieBum is made in Australia hence the name. They are to be cold rinse after use and can be gentle machine/hand wash in cold water and hung to dry.

I love the feel of these on. The nylon kind of gives them a silky satin feel. They are lightweight and breathable, so will help keep you cooler on a hot summer day. These sit a little lower than a typical swim brief, but not too low like I think some of the jammers that pro swimmers wear. I think these will be a great all day beach bikini swim brief. Only concern I have is how well nylon holds up as a swimsuit. Seems to be pretty durable in the underwear I have, so hoping the same will be the case with these AussieBum Classic 1.5 swim brief. Also I think the price for a pair is pretty reasonable.

    I have many of these in various colours. They are very durable as pairs I have had for a few years are still going strong. The lighter colours can get pretty sheer when wet. Even the Red gets a bit sheer in the rear when wet. The Light Blue and White get sheer in the front when wet. I find this very sexy, but have only worn the Light Blue pair once on a public beach in France. The Red is safe to wear to the pool.

    I have the Black one, but I save it for the more conservative scenes, or as a back up swimsuit, if the one I want to wear is unacceptable.

    How sheer does the black one get? Will there be problems about modesty if worn in public pools for lap swimming? Thanks.

      The black one doesn’t get sheer when wet, so should be fine at a public pool. It’s the lighter colors that can have sheerness when wet. They use to have a sheer rating in their descriptions. Haven’t checked in awhile. The pouches are a double layer of the fabric. Can always test out the sheerness of a pair in the shower before wearing if trying a different color.

      The black one is not sheer at all. I suggest go for it.
