I haven't got anything to add to this discussion but just wanted to observe that sometimes we can't half produce a fantastic deluge of words!  I last visited on the 14th, and here we are 3 days later with a wonderful melee of discussion logged on about 10 topics and numerous whole pages of content.  What a great bunch we are! Long may it continue.

I roll up the hems on my shorts, but this is not the fashion of today. Shorts should reach the knee, or lower.  ~Safebare


A couple of months ago I was waiting for my wife to arrive at the airport.  Standing there watching passengers come down the ramp i counted 12 women wearing very short shorts.   Just long enough to cover their buns in back and wide enough to cover their crotches underneath.  Little or no leg covered at all.  They had no hose, tights, or stockings either, just bare legs.   There were so many that I started counting.  Some older and some younger women.

I guess the fashion must be way different for women.

In the same way that on the beach, women can wear the skimpiest of bikinis (although not topless) while men wear board shorts. The equivalent speedos are even banned in some places eg Alton Towers and I believe more widely in the US.

Of course, having to wear anything on the beach is a imposition.
Tread lightly upon the earth!

I hate the modern fashion for swim shorts and board shorts.  Speedo style swimming trunks - brief and figure hugging have all but disappeared and seem to be the preserve of the unfashionable old man (into which category I guess I fall!).
When you dive in, Swim shorts get full of air and when you climb out they are saturated, never dry, drip everywhere and make you cold.  When you are swimming they are a drag and all in all lack comfort.  Swim trunks are no trouble like that, hold no air or water and dry off quickly.  Why is my wife against them?  She will not get her way on our upcoming holiday.
Whilst I entirely side with the observation that nothing at all is the very best swimwear, where you are forced to be textile, at least allow people to wear what they want, you fashionistas and stock them in stores.  I shall pay no attention to the dictates of fashion and endeavour to wear the garment that to me is the least worst when swimming.

When I go to the gym to swim, I wear my old threadbare Speedo. It is still fashionable to wear one for competition and preparations for that.

At the club, at textile friends with granddaughter, I have a pair of tan through trunks that are more porous. They are short, remember Sean Conroy in early Bond, James Bond, movies? Not as tight. They are a tad tight between the legs and my junk will slide out when sitting, if I'm not careful, but...

...I think that the shorter leg swimming shorts are still fashion correct, if you get them from a tan through, tan-thru, business.

The tan-thru, by the way means that you must wear sunscreen to compensate for the slighter tan that you get from the swimwear. The straps, seams and bands don't tan through. It doesn't feel natural or practical, either, if your wife tries to use one as an excuse to ban your genitalia from the nude beach.

Much to do about silliness.

Kitting myself up for holiday I managed to find a couple of pairs of the short leg (but not briefs) spandex style speedo type trunks which are a good compromise -when forced to wear swim trunks- between something brief but proprietous and reasonably in fashion but avoiding the wet, flappy, air or water-retaining horribleness of swim shorts.  Why the hell those are so universally fashionable beats me (as I think I already said!).
