Spilling the Beans on Skimpy Swimwear
In my post “Swimwear Etiquette: Swim Briefs, Bikinis, Thongs, etc,” I mentioned letting people you are going to the beach with know that you wear against the norm swimwear. More so when younger kids would be along, so the parents could be prepared to answer questions if needed. Also I feel it would make me more comfortable if whoever I’m going with already knows I’ll be wearing a swim bikini brief. I want to brainstorm how to go about spilling the beans on wearing skimpy swimwear. I have the urge to just let the cat out of the bag to a friend to see how it goes. My assumption is he would be cool about it, which is how friends should handle it.
The easy way is if you have a partner to let them do it. My wife typically makes the arrangements if we are going somewhere with people, so I’d put the ball in her court. So far we haven’t done any beach trips with my kids friends’ families or anyone for that matter. If the ball is in your court, you have a bit more deciding to do. Probably easiest is to try and work it into a text conversation or plain out state it in one. Guess it really should be brought up in the planning of the beach or pool trip. Hey, by the way I like to wear swim briefs. I’d aim to make it a point that you are not asking if it is okay to wear one, but that you will be.
When I did a little boating with my friend, I tried to work it into a conversation. Maybe not quite work it in, but allude to it. I think it would be odd to just blurt it out of nowhere. There was one time when there were some females in bikinis kayaking nearby. Well, somehow the conversation got to it would be fine to give the ladies some eye candy too. He was referring to me removing my shirt, but I tried to respond in a devilish tone that I do give the women some eye candy at the beach. Of course that was a long shot chance of connecting that I show more of myself than the typical guy beach goer. My goal is to have a better plan of bringing the topic up next time around.
Have you brought up your swimwear choice with someone you know? If so, how did you go about it?
