Great fit and materials
This is a great brief for both swimming and lounging; though the sides aren't truly 1" (more like 1.5"). I purchased this in 3 colors and use them primarily for paddle boarding and outdoor/open water swimming. The material is very soft, yet thick and durable feeling; the front is lined well and I did not experience transparency with the white version, even when wet. The sewing appears to be very well executed and sizing is spot on; I am 6ft #160 and my waist/hips measure 32-1/4". The medium was properly snug to stay on during diving and my feeble attempts at flip turns. Buy a size up if you like them looser for lounging...

Attractive banana hammock
It's a good swimsuit built for tucking 10lbs of sugar in a 5lb sack. It doesn't fall off and stays where it should. Makes Neighbors close their blinds.

It's a Speedo....enough said!!!!
Alright, I'm one of those guys who should NOT wear a speedo. I bought this more as a joke so I can't say I'm the best reviewer. I have a 38" waist with love handles and this thing gave meaning to the phrase muffin top. Besides the feeling of having my man jewels squeezed into my throat I was pleasantly surprised at how I glided through the water on my recent trip to Virginia Beach. Yes, I embarrassed my wife....but that was the whole point!!!! Lol

The Speedo Solar's are the best they make
The Speedo Solar's are the best they make. Great for laps. And I love the new heather grey color. Fits as expected. I have 8 of these suits. They are by far my favorites for the pool and sunning in the yard.

White is thicker than black
Bought same size in black; the black ones fit like I expected, but the white-ones have a double-thickness liner in them (which is very similar to a woman's bikini-top liner). I'm assuming that liner is to "hide" better, but they should make them oversized to fit properly. No, I don't wear these bikinis alone, I use them under un-lined swim shorts to keep everything hidden and supported... so making white ones thicker to "hide" isn't important to me.

Classic choice, good durability
I have recently taken up swimming as an alternative to running because it has started to bother my knees.
I purchased these swim briefs to streamline my packing. The are small, so if I hit the pool after work, I don't end up with too much wet fabric I have to deal with. They seem to be constructed of a good material too. It has held up surprisingly well. I swim in a community pool that is highly chlorinated and I've so far been impressed with the longevity compared to another pair of speedo briefs I had before this one, although I forget the model.
Navy briefs, white swim cap is a classic look, although red is also pretty tempting.

Great for lap swimming.
If you swim laps you will notice a difference with these. I swim almost every day. Yeah, they're revealing but most of the men see me nude in the showers afterward so who cares?
I probably wouldn't wander around the beach in them but for lap swimming, they're great.

White stains so easily.
With the high quality material and good reviews I would of expected that the dirt would be able to easily wash out of the white. Even simple things like beach sand and someone bumping me and rubbing off spray tan have stained the Speedo’s. I am so disappointed! I loved these but the fact that normal use stains them and even washing them with oxy clean and everything good STILL doesn’t get it out makes me so disappointed. Especially since the bright white looks so great against my tan skin tone

Love the heather-grey color!
Love this suit! Have been on the lookout for a grey-colored swim brief, and this was just a notch about that... it's heather grey! Fits just like a classic swim brief with about 2-inch sides. The drawstrings are flat and located inside; the front is also fully lined. In regards to sizing, I'm about a 28-29 inch waist kind of guy, and the 30 was perfect--so keep in mind sizes for how you want your brief to fit when buying. Will definitely be bringing this out for sunnier days!
