Baleaf Men's Fashion Gradient Color SwimwearIt’s summertime again and it is time to catch up on the latest styles of men’s swimwear.  When looking for swimwear it is key that you find something that you will feel comfortable in wearing and hanging out in.  You don’t need a six-pack to feel good outdoors in the sun hanging out with friends.  If you are having an underwear crisis we recommend you first read out best men’s underwear guide here.  Before we dive into the latest we feel we should talk about some of the styles that you will see on today’s market.

If you are in competitive water sports or love to swim for long periods of time we recommend getting swim briefs (something like a speedo or racing briefs).  These are high cut and won’t create much drag in the water while you are swimming.  Being aerodynamic is important and you can find many pairs on the market.  Next, you will find trunks or boardshorts that hang down to your mid thigh or even lower.  These are comfortable to wear and are loose fitting.

The next swimwear for men we will focus on is the square leg suit.  This has a similar cut to the boxer brief and has become more and more popular recently.  Very stylish and also form fitting.  Next, you will find Jammer swimwear which looks like compression shorts.  Jammers are usually form fitting and made from a spandex or lycra material.  If you are going scuba diving this summer or maybe just snorkeling, we recommend you look at some of the latest bodyskin’s on the market.  The only drawback may be cost.  Let’s dive in shall we?

Your Best Men’s Summer Swimwear

Some Of The Best Swimwear For Men On The Market

Square Leg Men’s Swimwear:

Our first choice of swimwear for men is the Speedo Men’s Endurance Square leg swimsuit.  Speedo has done a fantastic job making a product that will last over the years.  Chlorine is very harsh on clothing and the Endurance+ fabric used is 100 percent chlorine resistant.  Being made TYR Sport Men's Alliance Durafast Splice Square Leg Swim Suitof 50% polyester and 50% PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) you might wonder how these feel.  Rest assured these are comfortable to have on all day long and your swimsuit will be the last thing on your mind.

We like the cut/style of this swimsuit as well being a square leg silhouette which gives you more coverage than the brief.  These come with a drawstring waistband so you can make sure you get a secure fit.  This style has an added benefit of muscle compression to make you a more efficient swimmer.

Another square leg style swimsuit we have grown to love is the TYR Sport Men’s Alliance Durafast.   Made of similar material you can find with the Speedo like chlorine resistance and sun resistance technology.  What we like the most is the Darafast stretch technology that gives an excellent fit in any position.  The only drawback that we have found is that the swimsuit only comes in red and black.

Bikini Men’s Swimwear:

Mens Solid Contour Pouch Bikini Swimsuit By Gary Majdell SportIf you are looking for a men’s bikini swimsuit look no further than the Gary Majdell Sport.  This bikini underwear comes in many different bright colors and will attract some attention at the beach or even your local pool party.  Made from 80 percent nylon and 20 percent spandex, these have a nice stretch to them and are perfect for supporting your manhood.

The front of the swimsuit has a full front lining and a 1-inch waistband for extra comfort.  We love the cut and the fit of this bikini and so do the many others that are satisfied with this product.  Gary Majdell offers a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee with their products.  If you are looking for an affordable bikini you are in the right place.

Briefs Men’s Swimwear:

Zehui® Men's Swimming Swim Trunks Briefs Underwear Swimwear ShortsWe have found a few different types of men’s briefs swimsuits that we love on the market.  If you are looking for a quality swimsuit that is under 10 dollars we highly recommend the Zehui men’s swim trunk briefs.  We love the fit and style of this swimsuit and the size fits as expected.  These briefs are very lightweight and are constructed from nylon and lycra.  Coming in black, gray, blue, light blue and red you will be hard pressed to find a reason not to pick these up.  We love the price and the price and the quality of this product.  Two thumbs up for Zehui!

Next up is the Speedo Men’s Shoreline Xtra life swimsuit.  Just like the swimwear reviewed above this also has the same technology that offers longer life to your swimsuit.  This swimsuit is constructed of 74 percent nylon and 26 percent lycra.  Using these two materials gives you a water repellant that limits absorption so your suit dries quickly.  This bikini brief resists some of the struggles many underwear faces like sagging, chlorine, and suntan lotion.  We can see why speedo is the world’s number one swim brand, because their products back it up.

Jammer Men’s Swimwear:

Speedo Men's Rapid Splice Xtra Life Lycra Jammer SwimsuitIf you are getting ready for training, then it’s time to pick up a new jammer swimsuit.  We recommend TYR and Speedo for this department.  The TYR Sport men’s solid durafast jammer offers some of the strongest durability on the market and offers its 20 times longer lasting Durafast technology.  You won’t have a problem with these ripping or tearing while you are training.  Giving you an excellent fit and chlorine/sun resistance we can’t find a reason not to pick up a pair.

Our other selection is the Speedo men’s rapid splice jammer.  The Speedo jammer is constructed from nylon and lycra to offer you a longer lasting swimsuit.  The Rapid Splice uses a 9 thread flatlock stitch which not only gives you a great fit but is smooth against the skin reducing irritation.  Like the other Speedo styles/cuts, these are resistant to sagging, chlorine, suntan lotion, skin oils, and bagging.  You shouldn’t have to worry about your swimsuit while you are training.

Body/Sport Skins Men’s Swimwear:

NeoSport Wetsuits Full Body Sports SkinsWe have found two reasonably priced skins that will give you UV protection and defense against biological irritants (sea lice, jellies) while diving or snorkeling.  The first sports skin that we have found is the NeoSport wetsuit and is one of the best deals on the market right now.  The NeoSport is form fitting and provides full body coverage.  Easy to get in and out off, the sport skin offers a long front zip so you won’t have to struggle.  At the bottom of the suit, you will see stirrups so you don’t have the suit riding up your legs.  This is a well-designed skin that the manufacturer stands by offering a limited one year warranty.  We are very impressed with the NeoSport wetsuit.

The O’Neill Reactor full suit is another one of our top picks and is one of the most feature rich wetsuits on the market.  The suit uses FluidFlex design in the sleeves and shoulder areas for a better range of motion.  This wetsuit fits like a glove and is comfortable to wear with it’s flat–stitch construction.  Just like the NeoSport, O’Neill offers a limited one year manufacturer’s warranty.  Both are quality skins and will keep you safe for your underwater adventures this summer.
