Summer 2021: Swim Brief Style – Part 1

Summer 2021 swim brief part 1

With it being the unofficial end of summer, I figured it is a good time to start my summer roundup. 2021 turned out to be a good swim bikini brief year for me. It became the most public swim brief wearing I have done so far. Hence why I decided to break it up into two posts.

Our beach trips do not start until really July, since the kids enjoy playing in the water. The water doesn’t typically get warm enough until July here. That makes it not a very long window for beach trips. Besides the kiddie/family pool I was able to sneak some swim brief time in before our actual beach trips.

This year we decided we needed to take a mini trip (3 days, 2 nights). So we picked a location that allowed us some outdoor activities along with a hotel with an indoor pool. So late June we loaded up and hit the road. The kids were all about the pool. The first evening we had the pool to ourselves. Only had some people peek in to check out the pool and a hotel person check to make sure the hot tub was working for my wife. Not 100% sure that was her real reason for the pop in.

The following evening was a different story. When we got there there were 3 adults (a guy and 2 women) sitting at one of the tables and 4 kids in the pool. I stripped down to my swim brief and then my daughter wanted me to get something from the room. I put my shorts and shirt back on (not quite the guts that rlange has to sport my suit from pool to room) and got what she wanted. Back again with family already in the pool I did my “cover-up” removal and walked the steps into the pool to join them. As usually no clue of any reaction since it would be odd for me to stare at them as I enter the pool. They at least didn’t take their kids and run.

Maybe a half hour in the 3 adults left with 2 of the kids. Then a father and son came in to enjoy the pool. A little after that a daughter joined them and a mother just came to sit in the pool area. My wife requested a towel to dry off her face and as I was getting out of the pool a couple of what I’ll call retirement age ladies were coming in the door, which is by the pool steps. So I was in full view of the other pool users. A couple more kids joined the family. The ladies left after using the hot tub, but the other group was still there when we left. So I probably did some swim brief introductions that evening.

We snuck one more pool trip in the following day before we had to check out. Again we had the pool to ourselves, which is really more enjoyable. Can kind of swim around and move more. I stuck with my Adidas swim bikini brief for the whole stay. Having the hotel pool made the trip even that more enjoyable.

Besides the introductions in the pool to my swim brief, one other person was introduced. We had our swim suits hanging up on the shower rod one morning. When we returned from our activities, my swim brief was still hanging up there but moved. So the cleaning person probably knocked if off and rehung it when cleaning. I remember someone else stating something similar with having their folded nicely for them. Makes one wonder how often something like it occurs.

This trip made a great start for swim bikini brief wearing for 2021 for me. Hard to beat quality family time with swim brief wearing. Stay tuned for more swim brief time local beach style in my next post.

    It’s awesome you had some brief time to spend with your family, also I always think, people feel more confortable when they see a man wearing bikini brief/ bikinis and having good time with his family, I hope you tried something smaller. Can’t wait for the next part.

      Makes it more comfortable for me with the family. I’m more anxious and picky on the place when I go by myself, which isn’t very often and usually when school is back in session. I can’t really read how other people view it. They can’t use kids as a reason I shouldn’t be wearing a swim brief with my family along. I do feel people are tolerant of my choice. Haven’t overheard any one talking about it, but I’m sure there is some.

    When I was in high school, I once left my bikini inside out drying on the shower rod. The cleaning lady (who was also a family friend) turned it right-side out and folded it and left it on the towel rack. I really liked that this happened.

    I know I feel a lot more comfortable wearing the skimpy styles in public when with my partner, even though she wears one-pieces now. Any thoughts that someone might have that I must be gay to be wearing such styles are dispelled with a similar aged woman with me.

    It’s unique to hear from your prospective being that you have children, which I think is great, accompany you on your trips. I have been wearing swim briefs for 11 years but it’s always only been my wife and I almost exclusively at adults-only resorts. We do swim locally back home and I have interacted with other people including kids in that setting although my wife’s mostly thong selection usually garners more attention and probably anger from conservative swimmers/spectators. Anyway, I just returned from Antigua on my 6th year wedding anniversary and was able to wear a Greg Homme swim thong both at the islands only nude beach and at the resort. I did feel really nervous but maybe being that I ultimately would end up nude and most everybody else already was, I just dropped my shorts and felt really exhilarated. Reading your blogs is really good insight into how other men deal with something that seems trivial to most but really is something of interest for a small sub group. It’s really awesome that you’ve normalized the swim brief around your family interestingly my parents are still part of a really small group of people I still haven’t worn my speedo solar around. The blogs are really cool bro.

      I stuck with only wearing them on trips too until about 5 years ago when I decided I had to break them out locally before my kids got any older. Wanted them to see it as a normal option for me. Nice that your wife’s thong helps draw some attention away from you. Sounds like a nice trip. Mostly my swim briefs are normal around my wife and kids. Really only my brother and mother has seen me in them when I walked from our bedroom on a family trip to the pool. most of the time I was in the pool when others were out there and it was night time. So not sure how well they were noticed while in the water. There are a couple pictures in a photobook of me in a swim brief I know my in-laws and parents have looked through. So, there is some awareness of my swim briefs in the family. In general it is still a small group of people that know about them.
