    How are these sized?

    I have been busy buidling and toning my body for the last 6 months, and have a beach holiday planned.

    Want to buy some tight speedos to maximise the tan, and show by body to its advantage.

    I'm a 31 waist, and 34 hips.... which size speedos are best?

    I'm not sure how fitted or tight they are.

    Cheers.

    Go to a store that will let you try them on, and many dressing rooms will have a full-length mirror so you can see their fit without needing to step outside the booth. Start with one closest to your measured waist size, then try the next smaller and larger for comparison. Bring a friend along, too. If the brand only has sizes marked S, M, L, XL, then for your waist try the S & M (no pun). I don't think you'd be an XS (extra small), more a boys size, even in the less rotund UK, as compared to the porky US.

    A problem with smaller is that, while the fabric is elasticized and will stretch, the tighter waistband will compress your skin, and give the illusion you are overweight at the stomach. Watch for that effect when you try them on. Smaller will also cause more definition of your dick to show through the fabric, or as we used to say: "So tight you can tell his religion." Whether you want that obvious appearance or not is of course your call.

    If you were planning to buy online then I'd look to see if they have a sizing guide, and follow that. Even if you do try suits in a store, but buy online, different brands and models will vary in their fit, unless you're getting exactly the same suit you tried on. The Speedo brand, however, is fairly consistent in sizing, provided you stay within type, like a tank bikini or a square-cut.

    Ha ha... cheers for the reply.

    Are shops likely to just let you try a load on?

    I was going to buy over the internet, as much cheaper.... just not sure which size would be best.... or where Speedo take their actual measurements from - its like jeans sizes - a 30" waist varies widly dependent on manufacturer.

    I'm guessing Speedo aree going to be on the snug side..... and although I want to show my body, I'm not sure about announcing my religeon.

    Are there any guys who are 31 waist, and 34 hips....
    what size Speedos do you have?

    If you want to buy a competition suit, like a brand name Speedo, go for a size below your pants size (if you're a 32, buy a 30).

    If you want something more like what you'd get in an Undergear Catalogue that's for showing off your goods more than fitness, best try it on first.

    Mikey, try on a Medium and then a large...depends on if you are endowed like me or not...need a large because I am big down there and that holds it in place instead of tight and possible coming out if turned on...also depends on brand....have a good one and hope to see pics of you in them...

    Speedos in general are sized WAY too small, don't buy them in the same size that you buy a pair of underwear briefs. I have a size 31 waist and I buy a size 34 Speedo and it fits perfectly. A smaller size of Speedo and it's way too tight on me. I have never bought anything else in a size 34 except Speedos.
    I'm glad that a hot guy like you will show his body off in Speedos. Those fuckin long surfer shorts have been in style for 25 years, bring back the Speedo!

    I always go a size up with snug swimwear. That seems to work on most brands, even competition suits from Speedo.

    Don't forget a good sunscreen, unless you want wrinkles and possibly skin cancer!

    Post a pic with your speedo on when you get one.

    For competitive swimming, where you're trying to minimize drag etc, the rule of thumb is to go a size smaller than your waist size as suggested above. This works for most competitive swimwear (Speedo, Nike, Tyr, Arena, etc) where the fabric is mostly lycra and has a good deal of stretch to it. This will also maximize the use of the suit, as chlorine and salt will wear the lycra down over time, and the stretchiness will decline, resulting in a looser fit.

    For more fashionable swimwear, the suits are typically made of fabrics like nylon and polyester, which have significantly less stretch (polyester has almost no stretch at all). The sizing will vary from brand to brand, and fabric to fabric, so it's really hit or miss depending on what you choose. You'll need to try these on to determine the size that works best for you. And some guys prefer a tighter fit which tends to show off the contents, while others prefer a looser fit, which leaves a lot more to the imagination.

    And one important suggestion would be to make sure you rinse and wash your suits after EVERY use. Speedo and other manufacturers sell special detergents that are specifically formulated to remove the chlorine and salt which will very quickly deteriorate and ruin a suit if not removed each and every time. I thought it was a total gimmick at first, but after making it part of my routine after every swim workout (rinse, soak and hang dry), I did notice that a suit could last up to twice as long before it degraded to a point where it did not fit well and the lycra basically disintegrated.

    As a guy who has worn them all my life (competitive swimming and H20-polo games) I can tell you that if you don't get them to fit you tightly - they can come off or down in the water, in rough plays or in sprint swimming. This is not the time to get suits that are loose. Important that you try them on at first - so you know your size. Never buy them through the mail or Internet. This is def. a "try-on" situation at first.

    That is why most of them have tie strings.. As long as you tie the string they wont come off..
