What’s Up With Underwear Under Swim Shorts?
I see this way too much on the beach and I don’t quite get this one. Why wear underwear under your swim trunks or board shorts? I understand the mesh lining isn’t very supportive, but why wear underwear? First it just looks tacky with your waistband hanging out the top of your trunks advertising your preferred brand. Secondly is wet underwear even comfortable? Maybe a certain fabric that dries quick or made of a swimsuit type material. My guess is mostly they’re wearing underwear made of cotton or a cotton blend, which just doesn’t sound comfortable to me wet. Even worse are the ones that just wear boxers under their suits. Anyone find showing off your underwear under your swimsuit to be fashionable?
Personally when I wear swim trunks I do like more support, so I wear a swim brief under them. To me this at least makes more sense. You get the support, a fabric that is made for water, and gives you the opportunity to remove the trunks if you feel comfortable enough.
I know the best option is to wear just a swim brief and no trunks, but I’m still not ready to be the only one in a swim brief all the time at the beach I go to.
