    Funny how this thread just popped up because I just got this month's swim schedule for lap swimming. I wear briefs swimsuits when I do lap swim. It all falls on your personal preference.

    Jammers with a pair of trunks, have swam since I was little, nobody just wears jammers when they practice, plus more drag=better workout. Do not take that out of context!

    I find jammers to be very comfortable and I really like how they apply a bit of pressure on the legs... keeps the muscles a bit more stabilized.

    whatever you decide, go with the Nike Hydras. they feel awesome and they look like they're painted on!

    Have gotten more into swimming in briefs lately, but sometimes I prefer jammers, esp if I haven't had time to trim in a while.

    That's a racing brief.... a little too much for just doing laps I think icon_cool.gif

    Briefs. They are hotter plus you get a better tan line if you are swimming outside haha. But if you are racing a jammer would be better.

    guess i'm the only one that prefers jammers, speedos just look so speedo-y to me, i love the way jammers make a guys legs and butt look, they don't look as gay euro trendy as speedos to me

    I can wait until it gets a bit warmer here, although our community lap pool has opened and its heated, so be adding this again to my workout routine.

    I prefer the square cut briefs, the one that looks closer to boxer. This is something like it.

    chaos444 saidi'm a swimmer and i wear a jammer, never a fan of briefs.


    I agree..

    I'm also a swimmer, I use a drag mesh suit to train with but when I compete I more than likely use a jammer.

    Use a jammer because it helps to compress more area than a briefs would which can result in a slightly faster time.

    Be careful when it comes to jammers, if you pick a full body suit, try to stay away from events that last longer than 200 yrd or 200 meters, you run a greater risk of over heating.

    Over all remember to take care of your suite...I had a TYR lazer..it lasted me for 12 meets...remember to wast in cold water...keeps from falling apart.
