Re:Doing laps in a thong

In most cases that I have seen girls usually take a snap shot then later show there girlfriends what the day at the beach was about.  Some girls react to the photo like its a stripper at the beach or some crazy gay guy, nonetheless they chuckle and go on with there boring day to the mall or starbucks for mocha.

The difference seeing a hot chick in a g-string is we men think less is best for women and women think more is better for a man to wear. That's life, i didn't make the the rules only comment how it is.

Better way to explain this is,  when i go to the beach women are stunned at how tanned i get, some say to me sarcastically, "you wear a lot of sun block"? I for one don't care what the florescent light skinned women think of me. The women only laugh or smerk or are stunned at my body color, while i do look dark tanned i get compliments indirectly from some women and men. Some comments from men are; i wish i had a body like his, or when i use to tan, i had a tan ten times darker then him, from women  they open there jaw stunned while i pass bye one comments to the other he has a nice ass.  It maybe some women have a predigious on darker skinned men they either like them or wouldn't consider dating one. Believe it or not some women are racist towards the type of men they are with, surprise! So think at as if women have a predigous towards men not conforming to proper attire in there mind. So wearing anything unusual will not fit in there stereotype to men should wear.

For me i love swimming in low rise skimpy bikini's at the pool but i get shocked looks but love the way i feel in the the water. So i live with the ridicule and live with the tension it brings to them sharing the water with me. Plus now it seems to have scared all the women away at the pool so i can use it almost by myself.

I swim to train for competition - road races, Triathlons, etc. I find smaller suits go faster and I look good in them to boot.  The gym pool has no policy, but I typically wear Speedo Solar or the really fast/small JS Capri.  This is mostly because the American male is prone to wearing a pair of pants to swim in and is baffled when he is nearly naked at the other end after doing a lap (defeating the modesty gains of said pants).    A thong - I have a Speedo thong (yes, possibly the last) - is really fast in the water. 

Where allowed, a thong gives you the edge and a great tan.

At the end of the day, it is not a show or a statement, but you being comfortable with who you are. 

Did anyone notice the Internation Swimming Federation ban on the shark suits after the Olympics?  Yep - the bikini is back.   One never knows, the shark suit approximated a naked body - maybe the thong will be back!!

I swam in my black speedo thong at my golds gym in eau claire wi i swim there all the time sometimes in a solor bikini but i like to thong to. Management has final say on appopiate attire but I have never had a problem with simming in my thong.

I swam today for half hour with this onther lady thats a amazing simmer who is in there all the time.
She has wearing a nike racer top and really small rio string bottoms.  Maybe I should suggest she wear thong bottoms for laps since shes one step away. It was great swam did nome sauna felt great.

Today was at a local college pool where their rules are that the buttocks must be completely covered. Well mine weren't because I was wearing a Joe Snyder Rio Bikini, which was basically a half bottom on the back, I might as well had been wearing a thong, the lifeguards didn't seem to notice and a couple times I slipped my bikini between my cheeks to make a thong and it felt great.

Question - Most thongs do not have drawstrings, how are all of you swimming laps in a thong without a drawstring?  How do you keep it from falling off from one end of the pool to the other?  Being a swimmer who wore regular speedos, I always had to tie the drawstring tight, and I still had a problem with the suit slipping down slightly with each lap.  I can only imagine what would happen if I swam real laps with a suit without a drawstring...

Maybe your thongs are a size too big?   I have never had the courage to wear a thong swimming laps at my local swimming pool, even though it was my new year's resolution. 
But I wear 1/2 inch Andreas Cahling posing suits, and 2/3 back  Athelete Muscleskins, and none of them has a drawstring.  And I never had any problems with the suit falling off. 
Ok, it's also true I'm not a big swimmer, only swim a few laps once a week, but my suits they always stay on.  Or better said, as I stop every one or two laps, I have the chance to fixing up my suit.
The only times I have this problem is when I swim at a surf beach, after a big wave sometimes my suit falls off badly.

 I think the problem with speedo slippage is the water flow over that much fabric acts like gravity would when standing up, and then you add twisting of the trunk like you were trying to wriggle out of them.  Thongs, if fitting well, stay on by themselves because there is less fabric for the water surface to grab. 

With a thong there is not a pocket of water inside the suit between the buttocks that is being pumped every kick,  which in a speedo cut suit provides lubrication for the slippage.  Also the fabric on a speedo that runs around the bottom of the bum helps to catch water and pull them down.

With correct fitting thongs you don't need a draw string except maybe sometimes if body surfing in big seas. 

They do make thongs with draw strings.  Some of the German 'Olaf Benz' and 'Manstore' thongs come with drawstrings as standard.

Hi,
I've been swimming laps at a city pool for a couple of years wearing the Skinz "Stuffit" g-string. I like that model because it's about as small as you can go without anything "illegal" showing. 
I'm sure that not everyone is thrilled, but I've never had a negative comment. I'm quite satisfied with tolerance.
This isn't my first public pool experience, so I have some suggestions about public pools that are at: http://proudlybare.blogspot.com/2009/07/public-pools.html
BTW, this is the "Stuffit:" http://www.skinzwearphotography.com/prodMids/M55U-7522.jpg

The Skinz stuffit looks fun, but would lend itself better to tanning.   I have been out in Skinz Skiiny Side Thong and found it a great tan/swim.  However, the Skinny Side Rio is definitely for the beach. 

The gist is - if it is what you are comfortable with - wear it.

Today I took the next step towards doing laps in a thong. I went to the local swimming complex and after showering I put on a black thong and then a pair of Aussiebum squarecuts to hide the thong while doing laps. It felt great swimming while knowing that I was wearing a thong underneath.

But before I entered the shower after my swimming I quickly took off my Aussiebums. Only in my thong I entered the shower room. There was around 6 guys showering, but I tried to act as normal as possible. I stepped under a shower, still wearing my thong, then removed it after 30 secs. Nobody seemed to react. In the locker room I again put on a dry thong, and still no reaction from any body. So maybe, just maybe, it takes more to provoke people - which is really a good thing. Next time I will try to keep my thong on for longer. Actually doing laps in thong I am not so sure about.

I swim laps several times a week for a mile.  It varies some as my schedule and travel complicates getting in at times.  Anyway, I often wear a suit Muscleskins MP with a Rio Back or one like that.  Never more than a Speedo Solar.  Except for the Speedos, none have a draw srring and I have no problem with keeping them on.  The Seepdos are on the tight side and I may be aboe to wear a larger size, but I don't generally tie the drawstring and don't have any problems with then either.

I realize this is an international group, but - in the US - has any one had any issues swimming in a thong at the chain fitness clubs, eg. 24Hour, Ballys, etc?   My local YMCA has it explicit in their regulations "No Thongs" which might be an amusing story anyway.

This post makes me laugh everytime someone posts on it.  All these so called lap swimmers swimming laps in thier suits without drawstrings.  Remember guys this is not the "Thong Fantasy" board as many like to think it is.  It is impossible to seriously do laps in a suit that doesn't have a drawstring.  Even with a drawstring your suit slides down, so to swim in a muscleskins or other type suit without a drawstring is BS, no matter how tight it is, by the end of the second lap your suit would be around your knees...  Just simple aerodynamics guys.

Thongsc,

I would def. disagree.  I am an avid triathlete, I train in "My THong" from koala and "microglove" from Koala and both are great for training and neither have a drawstring.  I also have many other speedos especially box cuts and I will say that the speedos and box cuts def. need a drawstring becasue they have do much material the drag pulls them down, however the gstrings and thongs have so little material that evne pushing off the wall, they don't come down, they somethimes may roll on sprints, but especially for endurance training at lower heartratres and longer distances, they are awesome.

My work outs are about 3k, if that give you an idea. and since Iam a triathlete, I dont't kick much, more pulls, so form that standpoint the thogns stay in place better.  But  overall, again I would disagree with your comments.  I will say I have tried to train in stuffit gstring from skinz, which I wear always to the beach, that will not really stay in place for serious training.

I find the two things that are most likely to rip your suit of is high diving and body surfing.  Body surfing in big waves being the toughest because of the continual rush of high speed water.  The smaller size of thongs makes them least affected by the drag or possible ballooning that you get with speedos. I have worn lots of diffrent thongs when body surfing and have not lost any.  It is true that when emerging from the water I have needed to check and reposition the straps on one or two loose fitting ones but this is uncommon. Most stay in place just fine without a string. 

Most of my thongs do not have a drawstring on the waist,  probably the only ones I have that do are some of my Olaf Benz thongs. If you are worried about them slipping down get some with drawstrings. It has never been an issue for me.

 Thongssc I diagree with you about this being a fantasy board and that you have to have a drawstring to swim laps. I swim in a speedo solid thong regurally. Did it today it did not move never does ever why would it slip off if its the right size.  I love to swim laps in a speedo solid thong,  I think saying we are all fantasizing is a little insulting.

Good take it for what you want...  And I still stand by my statement.  Anyone seriously lap swimming, and I'm not talking about doggy paddling across a backyard pool, I'm talking actual mileage in a 25m pool, can't swim in a thong or other thong or suit without a drawstring without it sliding down, unless of course your back fat, gut and luv handles forms a seal on the top of your thong.  And swimming has the same effect of diving into a pool or body surfing as others want to say is the only way a suit will slip, albeit not immediately but by the time you reach the other side of the pool you will have slippage.  Your body is creating resistance in the water and anytime there is any resistance theres going to be pull.  I'm saying that anyone who states they seriosly swim laps in a thong is pretty much full of it...  Like it or not...

You  dont need  a drawsting if your suit is on right it  wont come off. Like if i have s 33 waist and i wear a size 28 speedo to swim in it does not move its form fitting. Its not going anywhere.  Just use your brain

I totally disagree with Thongsc. I have been swimming laps for twenty years 3 to 4 times a week in a thong and have never had one slip. This morning at the gym I did ten 25 meter spints in 30 to 35 seconds each as part of my workout without a problem. I usually swim 20 laps, pull 20 laps, and kick 20 laps as part of my workout. I've never had a problem with slippage. Like JM says, I have had them come down while body surfing in the ocean though.

There is something ironic in being emphatic about something when you have not personally tried it, and arguing with others who say they have done it and continue to do it regularly.   

I don't regularly dive from a high board, or high boat, but I did at one time, regularly, in a past life a was a captain in the Caribbean.  We would do a dead mans dive of the cat heads of the tall ship. I am not sure I would have the guts these days.
I do body surf when there are waves, but again not as often in the rough big stuff because I am older and just a little more afraid of getting hurt when slammed on the bottom or churned. I am no longer challenging the winter storms.

I have never lost a thong when body surfing but I guess it could happen. What does happen is the thong can catch quite a lot of sand. When the waves are real rough in a winter or spring storms it's not nice clear blue or turquoise water but up mixed with a healthy helping of sand as it erodes the beach. This is worse close to shore, between the beach and the first couple of breaking waves in the surf line.
Because of the sand being whipped up I can't see a thing underwater, and I realty don't want to open my eyes but sometimes have to, to see where the light is coming from and find which way is up. Still it's only sand. I like to think I am not as nuts as the surfers who surf around coral or rocks.  But the sand does get everywhere, hair, mouth, eyes and under the thong.

Maybe I should go join the masters group down at the pool. Trouble is I swim rather badly, it's always been the worst part of a tri for me, and my friends in the masters group are rather fast. Very fast.  Very very fast.  Went to nationals and came back with 5 golds type fast. So I think I will stick to running down the beach in my thong while they tare up and down the pool, and just join them later for breakfast.  Less embarrassing.

I personally have mixed experience on this topic. Like thongsc I can't swim laps seriously (and safely!) without having a suit with a drawstring. I have a fair collection of suits and when I've tried using suits without a drawstring, I have serious problems keeping the suit up, especially when pushing off in the turns. Suits with a drawstring fix the problem.
That said, a couple of years back I was lap swimming in a hotel pool while on vacation and wearing a Dore thong without drawstring and I was fine. If I felt I could get away with that at the gym I would... and I see no reason why the gym pool would be different to the hotel pool in terms of the suit staying up or not.
Whether it's the difference between a 'full' suit (Muscleskins Pro Rio/Athlete is my suit of choice for lap swimming at the gym) and a thong I don't know. Maybe different body shapes mean suits sit on each of us differently and are therefore affected differently. Perhaps the issue is that I wear my suits low anyway as compared to others that might wear their suits higher. There's a number of variables here that make straight comparisons nigh on impossible here.
I don't think it's right that any of us accuse others here of lying or fantasizing - we just need to accept that we each have different experiences. Which is exactly why some here are able to enjoy the freedom of swimming their laps in thongs and some of us others aren't.

I am not a lap swimmer, in fact, I am not much of a swimmer at all,  I am however, an avid wearer of muscleskins suits.  While I tend to belive the general theory, that it would be damn hard to do any kind of serious swimming in a suit without a drawstring, I can concieve of a situation where the physics of the male anatomy might allow some leeway in this area.  When I put on a musclekins suit, particularly the MPX, is so straddles my "unit" such that it would be difficult to come off simply because of the design.  Between my butt cheeks clinching the back strap, and my unit holding the front, I could see where a suit of this design might not come off very easily.   Personally, if I was a serious swimmer, i would get a suit with a string since it just seems like it would do a better job.

Thongsc, trying wearing a smaller size, I wear small no matter what, its skimpier, sexier, and more importantly tighter, so doesn't slide down.  Althoug as I said, pushing off the wall the triangle part of the thong or gstring part can catch some water, so push off cannot be aggressive.  But as I said before, 2500 to 3000 workouts 4 times a week.  And as you can see form my profile, I am far form FAT, so check yourself please.
nadathing #134

Re:Doing laps in a thong

I also must disagree with Thongsc.  I swim laps several time a week.  Some weeks it's every day.  I swim a mile in a 25 yd pool (not 25 m), and I do the mile in about 45 min. with a fraction of the laps at a faster rate than the others.  I consider myself a serious lap swimmer, and I consider my speed to be moderate.  Lots of people swim faster laps and lots are a lot slower.  But just because my speed may not be as fast as Thongsc's, doesn't mean I'm not serious.

I don't wear a thong because it wouldn't be accepted at the public pool I visit.  Most suits I wear have a rio back, though I do wear a Speedo Solar a small persentage of the time.  Those have a full back and are the only ones with a drawstring, but I do not usually tie the drawstring. 

I do have one suit similar to a Speedo Solar made by Muscleskins and I have to tie the drawstring because it simply does not have any elastic in the waist and would not even stay on even walking around unless I did.

But the vast majority of the time, the suit I'm wearing either has no drawstring or it's not tied.

I would think that the rio back would be more prone to slipping down than a thong, but there are probably several factors involved.  Obviously how snug the fit is going to be an important one.  The Speedos I have are snug.  I probably could wear a size larger and maybe I will try that, if and when I buy any more.  The rios are fairly snug too, but I don't feel that they are too small in thew waist, at least most of them.  And to be technical, it's hydrodynamics - not aerodynamics.

Now Thongsc should either try it or accept the testimonies of the numerous people who say here that they do.  Is he saying we are all lying?

 I have several thong swimsuits.
I try each one by swimming in the lake (i didn't try to thong in public pool).


Most of them don't have drawstring.

Without drawstring, i have no big problems. Some of them slip a little bit, but it is not a big problem. The best is the speedo thong... the elastic is very good quality and the thong don't slip at all.

The big problem without drawstring is that the elastic can damage and after several years, it is not efficient... so you have to change your thong...

With a drawstring, you can tight as you want... and no matter how old is the elastic...

I think the real question is not : "without a drawstring, does it slip or not ?" but the real question is "how much tight do you want to be in your swimwear (thong or speedo)" ?

I you have had bad experience in your child (swimsuit lost by jumping in water), you are afraid and want absolutely a good drawstring...
but if you are confident in yourself and in the elastic, no problem without drawstring !

Women don't have drawstring in their bikini and some women are good swimmers....

I was just entering the pool when a younger gal walks in. This is a private gym with weights and everything. I chose to swim in a roped off lane. The rest of the pool is open for classes. She gets in the next lane to me. Wall on one side her on the other.I don't think she saw my He Swimwear thong I was wearing (yellow in color). I did a lap as she did also. Next thing I know is she moves over to the far side next to the other wall. I said nothing to her except hello. She was a young 30ish. Wasm she afraid she was going to be attacked? It was just the 2 of us in the pool. Was she fearfull of getting some disease? What was she thinking? I would like comments  from both men and women.  I was not there to do anything but swim my daily 1/2 mile.There have been older grandma types(70's) there also and they say nothing. They do their workout and I do mine. We small chat once in a while. The actions and reasons of this younger gal are not clear.

It could be anything.   She could be shy, she could have a jealous boyfriend who was about to come, she could prefer to swim alone, etc.
Or, maybe she didn't like what she saw, I mean you swimming wearing a thong.
And that's fine.
Men wearing thongs is something quite controversial.  The people who like it, really like it.  But the ones who don't, they hate it.t!!
We should accept this reality, and the same happens in any other aspect of life.
There will always be people who dislike us, whatever we do, say or wear.
Therefore if I were you, I would just ignore it. 
You did the right thing, you were friendly and said hello to her.
It takes practice to accept this reality, but once you master it, it will never bother you again.
the other day, two yobboes at the beach called me 'faaaaaag', because they saw me wearing a thong.
It didn't bother me, I'm not gay,  but even if I was, it made me laugh how can some people judge a person just for what he is wearing.
I guess that because I'm in my forties, I have become more confident than ever.  If this happened in my twenties, I would probably have reacted or become upset.
The bottom line:  don't let anyone else be your ultimate judge.
If you like swimming laps wearing a thong, good on ya, keep doing it, and enjoy it!!

I did an experiment the other day while doing my afternoon routine.   I swam laps in my Solar and in my Thong.   For what it is worth, the laps in the thong were faster.    I am not hydraulic engineer, but it would seem that the design of the Speed suits used in the Olympics enhanced the performance of the athlete by changing the flow of water to more closely match a shark.   Under the new regulations, those suits are now banned.  Thus, the less-is-more concept might be the next direction competitive swimming takes.  One never knows - there may be acceptance for the thong yet because it allows the water to move with less drag across the body.

...just an observation.

This weekend I swam in my thong at my pool.
I had a women say hello to me today in french ...bonjour caught me off guard she said she saw me swimmig previous sundays in my thong had not seen me and a couple weekends and was complimenting me on my choice of swimwear and courage to wear it.

Does anyone know if 24Hour Fitness will allow thongs as a part of their "appropriate" definition?

If they designate "appropriate" in their definition of acceptable....i seriously doubt it. Although....I have seen many places (like my country club for example) where it is specifically stated "thong swimsuits are prohibited".   I tried to convince my wife to wear one of her g-strings (it is technically not a "thong"), but she wont go for it...LoL

 I have never had a problem swimming laps in a G-string or thong, as long as you are actually swimming laps most people will not even notice. If you are just relaxing around a pool more people may say something.  I have had a few people approach me after my workout and inquire about me doing laps in a thong and once you tell them that the small swimsuit cuts down on the drag on the swimsuit they understand.

Stan,  Thanks we love it and we love the privacy we have in the pool area. You never know you may decide to get rid of the thong tan line all together like we have

actually....I went the other way.  I was way into nude beaches and tanning nude until i met my wife.  She loooooooves me in thongs, and my tanlines, so i really do it for her.   She is kind enough to reciprocate, since her g-string line is about the biggest turn on for me that i can imagine.  I am actually more comfortable naked than in a thong, but she loves my little lines.  I do it for her, and she makes it worth my while to do so....LoL

 I had another excellent swim in thong this morning at my favorite pool. 3 women swimming one regular some girl in a two piece speedo racer that was nice  It just great how accepting peolpe can be of this swimwear. Just feels very normal. Swim in your thong it cant be beat.

I was in Lincoln Nebraska the weekend before Christmas and stayed at a hotel that had exercise privilages at the "Y" on P street near 10th.  My friend and I went there to do some lap swimming and were supprised to see a young college age man doing laps in a thong.  There were other men in speedo's but no other thongers.  He didn't try to hide this fact he was wearing a thong when he got out of the water to get a drink, or when he wandered to the change room at the end of his exercising, flopping his towel over his shoulder.  We later ask about this and were told that since summer a few men had worn thongs swimming and that the current policy was don't do anything unless someone complained -- nobody had complained so far.  I was surprised since earlier on this board in the news section, there were reports of arrests of men in thongs.

 A number of years ago - in the 60's - when I was in high school we used to swim naked at the Y in Lincoln. It was all men - and nude or jock straps were the order of the day.
