Speedo Brand Give Credibility?
I got an email recently with a new swimsuit line from Speedo, which got me reminiscing some. It wasn’t the men’s suit that caught my eye on this email, but the women’s. I guess when I think of Speedo I think competition or training swimsuits for swimmers mostly. For guys a couple suits kind of strayed from what I relate to swimmers, but I never noticed the women’s selection really straying. Well, this email brought the straying to my attention for the women’s selection.
I have noticed that Speedo offered bikinis in the past, but they were what I considered more athletic ones. Ok, maybe I’ve been under a rock, but it’s new to me they are offering skimpper back bikinis and even one pieces. Checkout my Pinterest board below. They’re offering back styles that I started seeing more often last summer by a lot of brands. Some look like they will be sliding to become a thong look. Still no thong offering for the women at Speedo. Still surprises me that the guys got the option and not the ladies.
With all that said, does the Speedo brand name give the more revealing style swimsuits class and credibility? When Speedo came out with the men’s thong, I decided I needed one. If I ever wore it and got questioned, I could say it’s a Speedo. I never wore it, so didn’t get to try it out to see what the response would be. However I do have several of their 1″ Solar Speedos, which I have worn in public. In my mind and for me, I do feel the Speedo brand name does give some class and credibility to a swimsuit. Guess their producing a thong for guys didn’t make things take off for us. At least swim briefs seem to have tolerance out there from my experience and Speedo has a somewhat of a close to a conservative bikini cut for us guys.
People see them as a reputable brand for swimwear. Though I do think people think of them more for lap and competition swimming over beach wear. Probably not going to be seeing the women’s skimpy back styles on lap swimmers. I do wonder if they’ll grab any of the swimmers attention and be a popular beach choice for them. Or will they not think like me that the Speedo brand name gives class and credibility to a swimsuit. Like I said the brand has probably more credibility for in the pool than on the beach though.
