Any good sporting good store that carries swimwear for swimmers (racing) will have a variety of options that will work well under your suit.

I'm partial to Jammers. (They'll have them)

You should use a dive skin suit where all you need to wear is an underwear under the dive skin. Also it helps you get in and out of the wetsuit more easy too.

See what happens when a man wears pink speedos! :rofl3: The wee wee doesn't like it! :rofl3: :rofl3: What on earth are you doing in that wetsuit to "bang up" your manhood? :confused:

Sorry, man... just had to pick on you and your "pink". ;) I, secretly, think it's fine for a man to wear pink.... real men CAN wear pink and look cool!

I wear Under Armor and it never bunches up. Other people mentioned that WalMart has a general version of Under Armor that cost less.

Speedo also makes something similar call Jammers that people have discussed here on ScubaBoard.

I would definitely prefer either if the items I mentioned to a bikini or a typical Speedo bathing suit.

My daughters couldn't agree more, at least about the bikini part. I threaten 'em that if they don't follow my rules, then out comes the speedo for the 4th July picnic!:D They're still trying to get me to stop wearing my UDTs, but that'll never happen as long as I can still fit in them.:mooner: BTW, Speedo makes a good pair of long swimmer's shorts that might work well under a wetsuit, I've been eying 'em for my lap swims as well as for dive undies.

I would, as a female, strongly advise against the old "banana hammock". I don't think the string waist would provide much staying power when in competition with the suction of a wetsuit. Plus they are really not that attactive, "manhood" all hanging out like that.

On a side note - I did a liveaboard in the Channel Islands for the New Year. Awesome experience but one of the men in the bunk right next to me wore the speedo. It was, almost infallibly, the first thing that I saw each morning when I got up. Not pleasant.

I got some of the Walmart brand: Athletic Works.
They come in tank top, short and long sleeved tops, and I've only found the thigh length shorts. They work pretty good, are cheap, and are available in: white , gray, blue, and black.

This has worked well for me as I have dived all over the world. Always modest and never bunches up.

I had to go back to the boat to get some more weight once and the guy on the boat was wearing loose shorts with the string banana hammock inside. I knelt on the ladder and he squatted to pass me the weight which is when he had a slight wardrobe malfunction and I got more than just the extra weight!

I came up in the fitness age, hiking, outdoors, swimming, diving, competition swimming and triathlons. Now people are into Nintendo, computers, IPods and other stuff. Is the human body really so grotesque or is it just that the X and Y generation has their Xs and Ys mixed up and maybe also could cut back on a few Big Macs.

Function should be primary and form should be secondary in most all things. I watch often in amazement as bloated younger men in swimming bloomers that harken back to the 19th century waddle and waffle their bloated burger bellies through the water, watching it is exhausting. I hate to say it but some of you folks are homophobic and insecure. Once upon a time people worried for food to get themselves through the day--that is something to worry over, seeing a fat guy in a Speedo is not. Oh, and BTW, I really am tired of women with the tatoos on their rearends. I would prefer a fat guy in a Speedo over another butt tatoo in my face, thank you. N

I might now add a new catagory, fat guys in speedos and butt tatoos on women. I think the two go well together and would be a great success and , oh, Andy, I don't know Joe but otherwise you got it .

Oh, I got a funny story, we pulled up to the fuel dock and this woman in a thong with a butt tatoos was the fuel girl I guess, Mac, my dog always had this habit of sticking his nose you know where. Well, she jumped in the boat to assist my fueling efforts and of course Mac stuck his nose you know where, she squeeled like a pig but Mac thought it all in a good days fun, poor thing, he passed on over Christmas, I miss him.

CRAP - guess we can't dive together ever Nemrod. My entire backside is just one big pictoral tattoo - including koy. :eyebrow: Just kidding.

As for the function v. form - I think that there has to be a happy medium. I have seen guys that were very good looking in their speedos. But they were those guys that grew up in the "fitness age, hiking, outdoors, swimming, diving, competition swimming and triathlons." I have also been "fortunate" to witness men that tested the elasticity of the suit (in Hungry and all over Europe). There are just somethings that scream "too much information" - despite their functionality. To those things, I cringe.

PS: It might have something to do with the hair factor and men. We women tend to be a bit more hairless and "tidy" .... please refer to the Borat photo.

... Is the human body really so grotesque ...

I find it a real hassle to wear a swimsuit inside my wetsuit, for the only reason that I can change in public. And not even out in front of everybody, but usually over in a corner behind something. But I don't feel comfortable exposing myself for even a few seconds around here because people are so hung up about it. I've been to a few other places in the world, and it was a real relief to be able to relax about this. Once again, nobody was parading around, but if someone is seen changing into their swimsuit at the beach nobody thinks anything of it. Actually, of course, you could say that I'm the one who's hung up about it. But if I could feel relaxed, I would never wear anything inside my wetsuit.

SkullDeformity
April 14th, 2007, 02:45 AM
It's koi, sarita, geez!

I wear a swimsuit just for ease of changing. I don't much feel like dropping my wetsuit in the middle of Alki beach. And given that it's a 7mil wetsuit, I'd very much like to take it off before driving home. If I need to change into clothes after taking off my wetsuit, the swimsuit drops/allows faster changing time than peeling off my thick wetsuit.

I want to file a protest. Why is a topic of interest to men, like men's bikini, is left in Basic Scuba Diving, and yet, my topic of significant interest in diving science, "Silicone vs. Saline Implant" was unnecessary transfereed to the "HUMOR" section???

When we want to discuss the scientific aspects of prosthetic material in relationship to diving buoyancy, trim, and fit - you MODs considered it to be humorous, and sent it to the trash bin.

Then a garbage topic like men's bikini with semi-pornographic photos are left here. If my son grows up gay because of these images.... I fault the inconsideration of the scubaboard moderators.

We need to balance woman issues with mens issues..... I vote to transfer "Silicone vs. Saline" back to the area where it can be discussed with seriousness.

This aint open for debate amigo.

Although hard to stuff down a wetsuit leg sometimes, my boardshorts function as the following: scuba undergarment, driving shorts, walking shorts, eating shorts, running shorts, happy hour formal wear, and pajama bottoms. The only thing more important is a good pair of zoris (I always roll with a spare pair just in case).

I have the generic WalMart "under armour". It's okay, but it ain't under armour by any stretch. It's very thin and the waist band is very loose compared to the compression fit of the leg material.

You should use a dive skin suit where all you need to wear is an underwear under the dive skin. Also it helps you get in and out of the wetsuit more easy too.

OK, dopey me, but why would someone wear underwear under a dive skin? So you can peel it off and be standing there in wet underwear?

Another thing that strikes me about this whole thread ... women (some who can, some who shouldn't) wear two piece suits which border on bare-***** naked, and nobody looks aghast at them. Men, by current fashion, are only properly dressed for the water with board shorts, about 3 yds. of material running roughly navel to knee. What's up with that??

Now if divers were all cruisers (as in extended-trip sailing) they'd understand the utility of the Speedo type suit, aka the "Baja tux". And in that context, everybody wears 'em, and no one seems to mind.

Thanks for your well spoken reply.

Since you brought up the subject...what ever happened to all the natural girls?

I see a lot of girls / women at the pool and beach pierce their belly buttons and have crap hanging from it.

They have charms on their shoelaces, charms hanging off their cell phones that seem glued to their ears and a cheap ring on every finger.

If that was not enough, they glue all sorts of things on their fake fingernails from pumpkins to Steeler logos.

Their 'cup cakes' are all plastic as well as their lips.

If they don't silicone their breasts, then they tattoo them or their nipples are pierced.

I have to chuckle at all this breast decoration. Breasts don't need a damn thing to embellish them - they are perfect as is.

The girls / women pierce their genitals, have studs inside their lips, mouths, tongues and noses. Tons of piercings running up and down their ears. And many of them seem to have the sensitivity 'down there' of one that has been vibrating with a belt sander.

Once in a while I see a nice, natural girl, without tons of makeup that exudes inner and outer beauty. Fresh pink skin, clean, plain and nicely groomed hair and dressed neatly. She may have mid length fingernails that are finished in clear coat and the only piercing on her are a couple of inconspicuous earrings.

No, she is not a 'hot babe' if one judges her by current trends, but she exhibits her 'hotness' in a way that seems to be lost nowadays...freshness and wholesomeness.

hey...I think I know him from Vegas, by the pool!

I had the opportunity last year to meet MissyD at a Conch Divers function. I can attest that she can wear this particular swim wear or any kind for that matter! It would be VERY WELL represented!! :eyebrow:

It is more important that you be comfortable for the dive. Make sure you get the proper size and fit, no one needs seams coming apart or anything hanging out that shouldn't be.

Personally, I just don't "look" at those around me, although it seems like a lot of you are! ;)

Over the course of this thread, that has been my thought. While on a boat preparing for a dive, shouldnt everyone be more concerned with their gear and their buddys gear instead of what someone chooses to wear under their wetsuit? Almost sounds like a bunch of high school girls wispering in the corner of a room making fun of what the non popular people are wearing.

I say wear whatever makes you most comfortable durring your dive.

Nope, they are for real. I have 3 pairs that are similar that an ex-girlfriend bought me. I was hesitant to wear them, but then I figured out that everytime I did, they ended up on the floor next to her bed, along with whatever she happened to be wearing at the time! So I figured it was well worth it to wear them anytime business needed to be done with her!

I think most guys are way too uptight about underwear in general, why not have fun with it?

For me it is all about comfort. I really donít care about colors or fashion (much to my wifeís dismay). What I donít like is when everything is not held in or something slips out and I canít stand the seams where they are on Speedos. Under-Armor products are great. Great quality and they do what they are designed to do. Under-Armor gear looks to be about half the price of the Skinzwear Jammers, but I would guess that people would say that the Skinzwear are more stylish. You can get Under-Armor at REI. Here is a link:

I have actually used Under-Armorís long-sleeve shirt as a mock skin suit top when diving in the tropics and kite-boarding or kayaking.

I use the Heat Gear Short sleeve shirt and knee length shorts. Works great.

I wouldn't wear my underwear to the beach, and I'm sort of under the impression that that's what that site wants me to do.

Looks like that site is geared towards chip'n'dales dancers or something...

Yeah, I dont see how much of that would pass for swimwear in the U.S., but it does make good underwear.

Inspired by this thread, on my last dive I used my bike shorts, and they worked a lot better than my usual baggy swim trunks.

Comfort is king, and that means my boys need support. I find that bike shorts by themselves leave me hanging, sometimes left and sometimes right. Okay, but this isn't really meant to be funny. I am glad that I found this thread. I have spent time in stores and on-line looking for something that both provides support, and covers the modesty factor. So lately, I have been diving with a speedo or underwear underneath my bike shorts. I get support and I'm not a 45 yo guy in a bikini. Also, its not too thick, and I get additional thermal protection on cold water dives.

What I really need is the old style swimsuit with a comfortable inner support mesh. I find that the old swimsuit mesh is actually not that comfortable after being compressed by neoprene.

Just my two cents....
