    I purchased a couple pair of Aussiebum swimwear recently, but I'm not sure about the fit. To be a small framed guy the xs are kinda snug. I'm a size 29 in the waist, which is the size of an xs. Should I return them for a size up, or will they stretch a little? I have posted some photos so I may get your opinion. They would be appreciated.

    You had to make the name specific enough for advertisement?

    I don't like that brand.

    Go with some Cin2 or Rufskin instead. You are right about the sizing - it's usually one size down from underwear.

    They are the right fit. They are suppose to look gay.

    Yep, the next size up would be too baggy. They're made to be skimpy and show everything.

    AussieBum runs small.

    Honestly, you need more bum in your AussieBums. SQUATS!

    You're a slim guy, anything larger will be too big.

    I know usually I need a large in a swimsuit (occasionally a medium). If I'm ordering from a company in China, it could even be an XL... you always need to ask.

    We do need to see pics..but in the end, how it feels makes all the difference in the world.

    i have a couple of pairs and with time they eventually stretched slightly. you look good in yours so i would keep them unless they are too binding that you can't swim in them right away. icon_biggrin.gif

    Dude / just don't put 'em in the dryer. And yeah, when buying stuff made in China or certain other countries where sizing is different / get a bigger size. Air dry 'em too or you'll end up giving them away when they shrink too much.

    I hate fake profiles who ADVERTISE for cheap companies who can't afford real commercial advertisements.

    Sentence: Boycott this brand. And kill OP.

    The size is proper for your weight, and waist size.

    You probably want to spend a bit more time on food and exercise. While each have our tastes, of course, but, you'll look a lot more like a guy if you workout, and eat, a bit more.

    Sometimes, a bit more is better. It's what makes you a man, and not a boy, or woman.
