How you refer to them depends upon where you grew up. Your location also plays a role in what you consider ‘normal’ attire for: the beach, the lake, the pool, running through the sprinkler… When I’m at any of these scenes (excluding front yard sprinklers), I like to check out what the men are wearing.
One of the major things to think about when purchasing a bathing suit is length. I’ve written about the length of guy’s shorts before, but swim suits deserve a separate category.
What will you be doing? i.e. If you are surfing (and aren’t wearing a wet suit), then you’ll probably want a longer pair of trunks, as climbing back on that board can tear up your skin a bit. (especially if you are paddle boarding in the ocean—ahem, Mike (!)) For longer board shorts, I like these. I like anything ombre—hair, clothes, curtains…
Another thing I like? Rainbows. I’m not talking about the brand of sandals, I mean rainbow patterns. Maybe it’s the lack of decision making that I’m attracted too (you are wearing all the colors ‘of the rainbow’). I just love the look of these:
Sundek has SO MANY styles at all different lengths; you will find something you like! And most all shorts have their trademark rainbow, shinning across your ass.
