Summer 2019: More Swim Briefs
Beach season always goes by too fast. It is already time for my summer review, since I’m not foreseeing anymore beach time. It’s a pity I don’t get out enough to wear the many swimsuits I have. Guess the main things is I get to wear some of them.
The biggest news of the summer was on a family vacation with some of my family and my in-laws. I sucked it up and wore a swim brief at the house pool. Wasn’t quite as big of a revel as it may sound. It was at least another step in getting away from trunks You can read my post on it here.
This year we were able to make a couple trips to the beach. For the first trip I went with my new Slugger’s swim brief. With it being a print I’d say it is a bit bolder than my typical solid colors. This trip we arrived around mid afternoon, so the parking lot was mostly full. When we got to the beach there was three lifeguards on duty, which is the most I’ve seen at this particular beach. Also the most people I’ve seen there too. We set up just behind the left most lifeguard chair. In my normal fashion after getting things set up, I removed my sandals, shirt, and shorts just like any women would when wearing a bikini. As in my past trips to the beach I made several trips back and forth between our blanket and the water. Spent the majority of the time standing knee deep or so supervising the kids in the water. Again like the past I didn’t really notice much reaction to my swimwear choice. We spent a good 3 hours at the beach.
The second time we went it was a few days before school would start up. This time we got a little earlier of a start and arrived a little before noon. This time not many cars in the lot and no lifeguards on duty. We had lots of beach to decide where to set up. We ended up setting up a little in front of the middle lifeguard chair. Before I got to stripped down to my Adidas swim brief (one that was in a group of possible local beach wear), I saw two probably teenage boys running down the beach. To my surprise the younger one was in a swim brief. Soon after they made it to the water I was proudly wearing mine too. When I was in the water with the kids, I heard them speaking a foreign language, which as we’ve talked before they are more open to the swim brief. The family stayed less than a half hour and were gone. I learned that most of the beaches didn’t start getting guarded until noon. That is when a couple lifeguards came to the beach and more people arrived in the afternoon. Not as busy as our first trip though. It was about another 3 hour beach day. As things have gone for me in the past, nothing odd to report with my swim brief wearing.
Now there were some things I did notice not related to my swim brief this summer. First I paid attention to the rules on the lifeguard chair. It stated clearly that thong style bathing suits were not permitted. I already knew that, but never noticed it stated in plain English. This year I noticed more females in skimpy swimwear. Last year I felt I was wearing the skimpiest. Off in the distance I saw a couple females wearing what looked like Brazilian cut/half back bikinis. Near us there were some a little on the cheekie side. Then one that probably could have been argued as a thong, since the others were cheekie just a bit at the bottom of the butt, while pretty full the rest of the way.
Probably to me the most interesting of my sightings were either two girls in their late teens or early twenties came walking down to the beach from the parking lot. Both in jean shorts and t-shirts obviously sporting bikinis underneath. They laid down their blanket and the one girl removed her shorts and t-shirt while the other one sat down on the blanket. The one sitting down took her shirt off and then unbutton her shorts and slide them off sitting down. Kind of reminded me of my first trip to the local beach to wear a swim brief though I took mine off and sat down quickly. I never saw her get up before we left. It did appear she was wearing a string bikini bottom. It was kind of enlightening that there are females that want to wear skimpy swimwear that are bashful about it too. Which means there are women that can relate to us guys that are nervous about wearing skimpy swimwear and public. There has to be some women that want to, but don’t have the courage to do so like many guys. Maybe by us wearing swim briefs we can encourage not just other guys, but some of the women too.
To wrap up my 2019 summer post, I have one more accomplishment in swim brief wearing. I finally have some very light, but visible swim brief tan lines. Still have a ways to go to get rid of the dominant short tan lines, but I’ll take what I can get.
