You wanna gratify yourself, or make yourself a chic magnet? Two different things. Girls are not crazy about guys in speedos, despite what the hype might say. On the other hand, if that's what you like, then go for it. I bet your personality will overcome any looking out of place while wearing that thing.
Last summer It looked like more men were finally starting to wear skimpier bathing suits,at the beaches along Lake Michigan,rather than the long boardshorts. I know myself that I would rather wear my bikini bottom or my camo swimming skort. They are much cooler, and a lot more fun than my long swimshorts. Besides The tan on all my legs, looks better than just half tanned. Just wear what you like, and are most comfortable to you. may peace be with you all, jenisis21@yahoodotcom
I don't know why it's so bad for guys to dress like that, men's bodies are gorgeous but no. For some reason...
I wish they were acceptable and liked because I hate thinking of my boys swimming with long shorts that hamper their movement in the water. Less is best (safest) when swimming, true? And how can a guy tan when he's all covered up?
No, because i'm going to go read it, therefore it was successful, and by that, not bad for you. Well, unless I leave some disastrously bad comment on your hub or something. But then, you might turn that into something positive. Start a flame war that draws lots of traffic for the spectacle. So yeah, I think you're good with self promotion. You should probably put a link in.
You've got a way with words, Shadesbreath, so I hope if you get to that hub you don't tear it apart, because then I'd probably have to tear down the hub itself, since I doubt I could counter you with anything smart ... enough to survive
Justine linked or else I would have. You don't have to worry about a flame war anyway, it's great. I giggled all the way through. I'm immature, of course, so that might be part of it. But, funny stuff.
I'm not sure which would be worse in my view - a man in speedos who does not have the physique of a Greek God or, the man with the baggy swim shorts that slide down exposing what we in England call 'Builder's bum' every time he is hit by a big wave!
But nakedness is completely allowed! (think Polar Bear swim as it originates in Canada). I promise you won't stay cold for too long (but keep the Speedos at home....better yet, at the store unpurchased).
Yikes...I still have bad memories of being "Speed-o-tized". There we were sitting at a nice boardwalk Pizza Place at the beach. We could only see straight ahead from where we were sitting. There was no looking to the left or the right...so we never had advanced warning. Suddenly...I kid you not...the boardwalk restaruant to the right of the one we were at started screaming. Then...Then...came the reason and it was terrifying: A huge male (of no minimal than 350 lbs.)in a Pink Speedo. That's not the worst of it. The Speedo had been so stretched out...that the only thing holding it up was a couple of well-pinched wrinkles. Shock...overwhelmed me. The restaraunt I was in stayed quiet for a whole minute (everyone also in shock)...and then let out a scream...thereby alerting the next restaraunt down the row.
I know this thread started some days ago and you have probably been wearing your speedos but the fashion writers in the UK are definitely saying it's a no - no. Having watched one of those awful programmes on e-entertainment about the best and worst beach bodies - they had plenty of examples of stars in speedos - believe me - it was not attractive. Don't do it.
i used to run into a guy in a thong, walking the boardwalk at a beach I used to live by...he was always smiling as he walked the boardwalk bordering the beach, it was the 80's...he always had a matching head band too....I loved running into him...had to hold back my laughter everytime until he at least passed me by....i was being as polite as possible whenever i'd run into him....and he had quite a collection of beach thongs....but he was always smilin'! (like this guy)...i just can't get my head around thongs for guys!
According to young turks, a new line of sexy lingerie is being mass produced specifically for men that want to wear them. It's also interesting to note that the company making the undergarments are saying that over 90 percent of their customers are actually STRAIGHT aka they're mostly...
As I get older (grandmother), I am aware that some of my clothes are outdated and do not look age appropriate for me. I still like to look fashionable, but do not want to put people off by wearing things that look like I am trying to turn back the years too far. What do you think?
