Ok...I know I'm setting myself up for a major butt kicking here, and I really feel like a for asking, BUT... I need to know what to ware under my wetsuit. I have less than 24 hours before I leave for Bonaire. All my diving up here has been in a pool, where I don't need one or in a drysuit in open water. I just realized that my board shorts give me that nice "I'm wearing a diaper" look, a speedo is out and going comando... well, I'm not 25 anymore. Please help
Scubapro neoprene freediving shorts, lycra compression shorts or long speedo swimsuits. I think they call them Speedo Jammers or something like that. Target carries Champion compression shorts that work well and are cheap. Be sure to buy the black ones. Haha.
Speedo and others make suits that are "square legged" or even mid-thigh in length. Those work. If you are having a hard time visualizing, think of what a bicycle short looks like. If you are having a hard time finding something, you can check out stores that sell triathlon wear.
(It's always fun to be busy typing and finally post a response only to discover that someone else beat you to it - with the same info too! Gotta type faster.)

BabyDuck... I actually googled "tankini" just now! and then blew coffee out of my nose when I saw one. Funny!!! Thanks to all for your help. Guess I had better get my butt to a sporting goods store. 22.5 hours left! ;')
