It’s all about swim wear this week on Guys’ Underwear Blog.
Today I had the pleasure of trying out two more excellent pairs of men’s swim wear; the Mensuas Boy 08 Swim Bikini by Tulio and the ES Collection 1011 Rocky Boxer swim trunk.
Here’s the vital info as well as my evaluation of the two.
Mensuas Boy 08 Swim Bikini by Tulio
The Mensuas Boy 08 Swim bikini is a true (low-rise) swim bikini brief cut, in that it is slightly more skimpy in terms of backside coverage than average brief cuts like the Aussiebum’s classic wonderjock or ES Collection’s Racing Stripes Swim brief.
Many guys like the sexy and attention-grabbing look that a bikini cut will give you. If you’re a proud bikini brief man, you’ll be quite happy wearing the Mensuas Boy 08.
Key features of the swim brief include
- Lined front pouch
- Comfortable elastic waistband
- 3 Inch Sides
- Mensuas Boy bogo in blue/white
Productionwise it’s quality all the way, and the fabric is an excellent 85% Poliamyde and 15% Elastane blend – lightweight and fast-drying, perfect for wearing to the beach or the pool.
I wore a size M for a 32/33″ waist, and the fit was just right, providing a proper combination of support and stretch.
Of the two styles under inspection today, the Mensuas swim bikini brief is definitely the economical choice, just US $36 from Mensuas.com.
ES Collection 1011 Rocky Boxer swim trunk
I’m a big fan of ES Collection, and I have actually introduced a couple of their swim brief styles back in May.
As I headed off to spend my holiday in Thailand I decided to acquire a pair of their swim trunks to see if this style also would live up to my high expectations.
I chose the Rocky Boxer swim trunk (style 1011). The main feature of the Rocky Boxer swim trunks is the subtle, cup-formed padding that’s been sewn into the pouch. The padding is very discrete and gives your bulge an enhanced, yet naturally-looking, profile.
The best thing is that it doesn’t really look like you’re being helped achieve a more impressive bulge. And the discrete padding was quite successful in preventing those “cold water” moments :)
If you want, you can remove the padding. Although, why would you??
Fit, production quality, look – all is just the way I like. One thing in particular that I like about this style was the slit in the legs. It’s the detail in men’s swim wear at the moment. Aussiebum’s latest surf short range is cut the same way.
Do notice, for ES Collection I get a size L. I find that for my 32-33″ waist, this size provides the best fit. Not too tight, but not too loose, either.
Made from 80% Polyamide and 20% Spandex, the Rocky Boxer swim trunk (style No 1011) is quite a premium-priced product. It will set you back US$ 80. That’s expensive, let’s not deny that, but I have to say it’s worth every dime. If for nothing else, then simply for its amazing enhancement system.
The swim trunk is available in numerous color variations and can be purchased from ES Collection’s own web shop.
