TIPS FOR ALL BODY TYPES
The Right Swimwear For Your Body
What makes a swimsuit/swimwear right for you? Honestly, there isn’t one perfect swimsuit for every man. We’re all different, different sizes, different bodies and have different needs. In this video I’ll go through what to consider for your body type.
When choosing the right beachwear it’s important to feel confident. What ever you end up choosing make sure you rock it. Here are a few things to consider when buying a new swimsuit so you stand out for the right reasons.
Tall Skinny Guys
Tall skinny guys tend to worry about swimwear not looking proportional to their body. We recommend shorts. Shorts are suitable for a wide range of people, especially for tall guys as it help balance the ratio of leg to torso. Try a pair of shorts that sit above your knee and about half way down your thigh, this balance you better.
LONGER LOOKING LEGS
You want to add some height while you’re confidently rocking our favourite swimmers. Avoid long shorts, instead opt for shorts that sit higher on your thigh or simply, just go for swim briefs. Not only will these make your legs look longer and more proportional but it will give you the illusion of added height.
CONFIDENCE IS KEY
Confidence and comfort is key! Try knitted fabrics that are stretchy and unrestrictive and will offer the flexibility and freedom that you need to rock your swim briefs or shorts. Also try opting for dark colours and prints. This will create a subtle but noticeable visual balance and will overall streamline your silhouette.
ADD SOME BULK
For shorts we'd suggest to go for woven fabric as they will not hug your frame and will add some bulk to your look. Choose swimwear or shorts that actually fit and not a loose fitting. Loose fitting swimwear will make you look slimmer than you feel. Excess, baggy and loose fabric is the biggest faux pas. If you’re going to rock swim briefs, don’t be afraid to go for that form fitting, body hugging swim brief.
And Most Importantly...
Guys wear swim briefs that are too tight, too small, too big and baggy and the list goes on. The right swimsuit for you is, one that is form fitting to your body, enhances your best attributes but most importantly, one that fits you right! The difference you feel when you’re rocking a perfectly fitting swimsuit compared to one where you are constantly adjusting and being conscious of, is the worst! Swimwear is all about confidence and if you’re conformable in what ever you’re wearing you will rock it!
