It is a common misconception that there is hardly any variety in men's swimwear. Men's swimwear styles run the gamut from trunks, board shorts and jammers (providing coverage from mid-waist to above the knee) to the classic Speedo-style (ie, minuscule) form-fitting briefs. The more daring guys can opt for the Brazilian sunga, which is popularly referred to as the men's version of a bikini; the shape of the sunga is similar to the bikini but the side is about an inch thicker.
The most popular trend last summer was the surfer-style board shorts, which flatter almost any type of figure, be it bulky or lean. Board shorts are normally longer than the basic trunks or Speedo styles and sometimes give a loose, baggy effect. Those who prefer to lounge by the poolside can ideally opt for a pair of board shorts that come with cargo pockets so that they have access to their keys, wallet and mobile phone, even by the pool.
Of course, the Speedo swimsuit remains a classic. Young men, who swear that wearing one of these skimpy little bathing suits gets them undivided female attention, prefer Speedo styles. For those men who are not quite ready for the bare-all Speedo style and yet do not like the bulkiness of the board short or jammers, there is always the basic pair of short swimming trunks, which are not quite as revealing as Speedo but have a similar support system. Boxer swimming trunks are quite popular with the older or conservative set.
Judging by the diversity of prints available in swimwear, designers predict that it is going to be a 'print year' again next season. There is no particular print that is in vogue, though, as patterns are ranging from the Brazilian and Polynesian to the Retro, Floral and Pop Art look.
