I'm with you, my friend. For underwear, I go for cotton briefs as well. I can't wear trunks or boxers either, so I go for bikinis or a "Tanga." We do have to be careful at the pool and the beach! ;-)
I think Tanga cut is incredibly sexy in terms of looks. Not sure about physical fit, though. It's a very rare design to see it in shops here ...

If you are looking for comfortable undies, have a look at the Andrew Christian Almost Naked and Trophy Boy series. They offer a very nice location to keep your equipment without feeling like you are strangling it to death.
Thanks. I've heard good things about Andrew Christian Almost Naked range. :P

I really like the Almost Naked range - so comfy but supportive, and no sticking!

Oh man! At first the subject line "Downsizing" meant going skimpier, which I started doing a few years back! :D

I usually downside 1 size but depending on the brand, the male jewels sometimes though get too squeezed. Downsizing is great for lap swimming but I like a looser visit at pool parties, beaches and on cruises.

I am so happy that you downsize for lap swimming. it does make the swimming easier and more comfortable, even though our family jewels might get squeezed! ;-)

squeezing is definitely part of the fun!
I downsize all the time for lap swimming, and I constantly make sure my boys are safe and secure!
they will be "enhanced" and "highlighted," but my downsized swim briefs keep them in place for a great swim. if only I could wear a thong to the pool

Swimmers typically downsize I hear. But, of course, only do it if modesty permits! You don't want half a testicle hanging out of your suit during a race! :lol:
The equipment advice from my son's team's registration.
The most common mistake when buying a suit is getting one that's too large. Many swimmers, especially males, aren't used to wearing more revealing styles and compensate by sizing up.

As a rule of thumb, you should buy a suit that is one size smaller than what it says on the sizing chart.
awesome
