Great swimsuit in general. Really like the speedo like inner brief. Those mesh briefs never fit and the elastic always stretches out really fast (might as well have nothing inside at all). The swimsuit (an XL) is a little short in the legs and a bit tighter than a traditional swimsuit, but the inner brief is such an improvement over a traditional suit that I would buy another pair if these got damaged.
Great idea. Great design. Just give us a "relaxed fit" version.
These shorts, with the built in compression brief, are perfect because they provide the necessary support unlike your typical watershort. They are extremely comfortable, unlike those shorts lined with mesh. Took Speedo long enough to create this.
I'm 5'8 and usually wear 28-30 waisted pants. I ordered the small and it fits great. Tight enough around the waist where I won't lose them and they sit just above the knee. I ordered the black and grey pair and I am happy with them both.
I plan to use these mostly for swimming, and so far I like them. The inner brief is a nice improvement over the usual mesh in swimsuits. One thing to keep in mind, the way the draw string is fed through tabs as you can see in the pic, the waist will hit a limit on how tight it can get. According to the size chart, I am borderline between a medium and a large. Since I like a little extra room and like to allow for possible shrinking after being washed a few times, I decided on a large. When I tie the string as tight as it can get, it still leaves some room in the elastic waist. The drawstring also has a slight elasticity to it. These are replacing a swimsuit I have now that relies on an elastic sort of belt that gives too much and is way too loose in the waist. I had a couple close calls where I almost lost them when diving in the water. That is my only concern if the waist isn't tight. I have not used these Speedos yet, but I don't think I will risk loosing them. I am hoping after a few washings things might fit a little more snug though. I am tempted to order a medium to compare, but I really do not think I can go with a smaller size due to the compression inner brief and my big butt. These also seem to have more of a slimmer fit on me. These shorts would be perfect if not for the tabs limiting how tight the waist can get. Also to note, I am 5'10" and these rest just above my knees. They have only the 1 zip pocket you can see in the pic. I am going on vacation in a month and plan to use these a lot. I will update my review if anything changes after some use.
