Speedos Are Making a Comeback

Speedos — Turn On or Turn Off?

Designers at Milan's men's Fashion Week dove headfirst into the Speedo trend this week. It would be easy to dismiss these appearances as nothing new for Europe, but the skimpy suits have made an unusual comeback off the continent in Britain too. Much like the boxers, briefs, or boxer briefs debate, women have an opinion on male swimwear. Would you be into seeing the itty-bitty briefs on the beach this Summer stateside?

I hope so I wear mine all the time I am going to wear my new green and teal 1 inch speedo that I bought this year to the lake and beach and pool. I can't wait. http://www.amazon.com/Speedo-Fashion-Lycra-Solid-Swimsuit/dp/B000YT5UPW/ref=pd_sbs_a_6

I voted turn off, only because it's not fashionable in the US for a guy to wear one and I like my guys fashionable.

I honestly depends on the guy. He if he has a great figure, it's a turn on. Also, most of the guys that I know wear speedos are on the swim and/or water polo teams.

Yyyeah I'm not really into a guy wearing underwear that looks like my own... A girl wearing her guy's clothes can be sexy, but the day my man comes home in my bikini bottoms.. we've got a problem.

As much of a turn on as 200lb women who wear bikinis. Seriously, wear whatever you want on the beach. Almost none of it looks flattering on anybody anyway.

This might sound weird, but I think gay guys are the only ones that can pull off the speedo. On a straight guy, it looks silly. Even if he's got a great body. It looks too... I don't know... high maintenance or something?

On young, cut and hot guys yes. Anyone else NO!

I actually like those speedos. I really like those guys in the speedos! But every time I've seen a guy wear one, he's old, fat, and grossly hairy. Plus it's kind of revealing on everybody. So I'd say speedos for private pools/beaches/what have you, but in public, definitely stick to board shorts.**But not too long or baggy. Right above the knee, please!

I think it's hard enough for these guys to pull it off. On the beach? a real, every day beach? you have the guys that look nothing like that but think they do and the guys that really don't care what they look like. I'm afraid of what would happen if both those groups tried to get away with a speedo........ Let's just leave well enough alone lol.

On these guys, they're a turn on. On normal guys. Heck nah!

I wouldn't mind seeing a guy like that wearing a Speedo from time to time... why is it that only fat and hairy old men insist on wearing them?

Ryan Lochte aside, I don't think that most men can pull off the banana hammock look. A little more to the imagination, please!

I second that, I don't normally care what men wear to the beach, but when I see my man in his tiny little speedo ... mmmm...... delicious.
