John Howard "strongest and most attractive muscles on both male and female anatomies, so penalised by being hidden under fabric especially when swimming and sunbaking."

I agree with you to some degree, but most folks consider it taboo in a way of sexual amusement for others. You can argue that's false statement i'm making but it is true for most non thong wearers.

I swim in a bikini 1" side and 3/4 back indoors at my gym pool. Would i prefer wearing a thong at my indoor pool, not really. I find that a thong would bring to much amusement and lot more looks at me then i already get when wearing my bikini at the pool Swimming indoors i will not get any tan lines from wearing a bikini then a thong but would prefer a thong if i were outside for sure.

Many woman who turn there heads to stare at me wearing a red bikini smiling with a little laughter and comments to there friends when i walk out on the pool deck.
I for one don't fret because i know i attract attention to myself looking the way i do be it in a bikini or dork shorts.
 So when folks look at me be it my smooth toned shaven body or dark complection they will look regardless of what swimwear i put on.  With many woman covering there bodies with towels and large swimwear fabric i'm the only one wearing minimal swimwear at the pool to go any less covered would look to them as being obscene or a total show off.
When i walk out onto the pool deck wearing my bikini with confidence whatever you may think of me i'm happy they way i look and not afraid to show it off. Today at the pool two woman were in conversation in the pool as i came out from dry sauna walking towards the changing room she said to her friend " i was pretty confident wearing woman like bikini briefs showing off my bulge", giggling ensued.
What i notice from most woman that i see who make comments about me when i use the deck pool shower to rinse off they usually stare at me when my back is turned towards them. When i face towards them they are less likely or shy to look at me or laugh. I noticed today at the pool when i showered on the deck pool i had a wedgie in my brand new red tight bikini bottoms the contours of my glutes were evident. So to these ladies they were definitely like to watch even if they were embarrassed to be seen caught looking. While other guys few as they are who wear similar swimwear as i do run to the changing room in fear trying to cover up with there towel as if they were nude or feeling they just robbed a bank.

I do my laps in a community pool's morning adult swim in Seattle about 50/50 men and women.  I wear a Speedo Solar.  I noticed when I started swimming laps last Fall, I was the "briefest" of all mens suits.  Now it seems a lot of the male swimmers are getting brave and opting to wear smaller and smaller suits.  No more dork shorts, a couple of jammers, and the rest are Speedos.  To me this shows how a trend can begin at a pool or beach... someone sees someone else go brief then it opens the door for them to wear less, kind of contagious.

I have seen a couple women wearing VERY tiny bikinis for laps so hopefully it will only be a matter of time before more will appear.  I have packed my old Speedo thong in my swim bag just in case some day I arrive and the timing and crowds would be right to wear it for the morning adult laps session.  I hope so.

A person definitely needs to respect the pool rules, but in a adult only swim situation it is more acceptable to go brief or wear a thong.  Not a sexual thing and adults don't really care or should snicker at others.  They are all there to do laps, not gawk.  As for amusement of others, the old folks doing water arobics would probably appreciate seeing a little skin on younger swimmers.

 drid123..lucky!!..here in San Jose, CA at Club One Almaden..it's just the opposite .I noticed the  trend changing a few years back..Methinks  in any group situation there are always some members who believe everyone else in the group must conform to what ever it is they believe..Methinks some club members went to the management and complained ..The only thongs I've seen at this place are during the summer when members invite their European friends and family members ..Ever since this club began the kddies/adult swim lessons to bring in extra money a few years back..things  tightened up.

When doing laps in a thong its is best to refrain from family swim times swim lessons etc.  It hurts the vibe of things even if you wear knee lengh shorts the kids will stil be loud undisiplined and annoying.  I remember waearing a square cut speedo suit at the YMCA pool wich was a daycare for mostparts of the day and all the kids just starying at me. Must have been my six pack. Its sucks but its really better to swim laps in a thong in a croud of educated adults.

I know this is a thong forum, and I do wear thongs and nothing at all, but my kiniki micro bikinis are smaller in front than the Speedo thong and cover the butt which is a concern when swimming at my Y.  I order a size smaller than my waist size indicates and it just covers above my shaft.  There is no doubt that I'm shaved smooth, yet, I'm covered for an indoor Y pool.  I just wouldn't push this issue at my Y.  Kiniki suits do last a long time in chlorinated pools, too.  I order them in quantity when they have sales.

 just wore my thong and did 10 laps the other day at pool :D, surprisingly it's after 6pm and no one came to the pool.

I had to turn my head once in a while to see if anyone walking to the pool when I swim opposite direction. Also wondering if any office unit people looking down at me. :P First time ever to do 10 laps openly in broad day light.

thong still ok, at least front cutting still looks like swimming trunk. If i was wearing my g-string, I'll be more worried as it looks as if I'm naked in the pool and if anyone comes, I'll be a panicking since it's string all over. :D

For my first time ever, I wore a Muscleskins 1 inch Classic Lean brief in the pool last night for lap training.

Basically, if one just gets on with one's business, the Muscleskins 1 inch Classic Lean does not draw too much attention but looks a lot more flattering on me than the bulky Speedo suit. I had no problems with the suit slipping down.

I'm glad I've finally crossed over to the Muscleskins now.

Aspirationally, the JS Thong may come out at 2100 on Monday in the once a week late adult swim, however I'm not sure yet. I don't want to ruffle feathers right now.

I feel on principle that I should wear my thongs in the pool because I'd appreciate it if more women wore skimpy outfits. If I can, they can.

At the end of the day, what will the proverbial "they" do to you? Ask you not to cover up? Yes, that would be the civilized thing.  If you are confortable enough, do it. A thong is a bikini without a rear panel.  In my experience, it is faster and really - lap swimming is about exercise. I love swimming in a thong, sunning in a thong and generally just chilling in a thong.

I do sometimes swim "laps" in a lake cove wearing a thong here in east TN.  The key is having a private spot from which to enter.  Once I'm swimming, I am actually getting sun, but people can't really see if I'm wearing a thong, or nothing unless they standing high above and looking down on me.  So I stay away from docks.

I have been doing laps in a thong at my condominium pool for several years. I usually swim a half hour, fifteen minutes at a time. Then I will read at poolside or lounge on my float. During this time I have never had a problem with objections to my thong. Well, there was one letter I received from the manager of the condominium asking me to wear more conservative swimwear. So I bought a new thong. The old one was quite old, unlined and had become almost transparent, and it was a g-string that can be gathered up in front to give minimal coverage. The new one was an unlined g-string, but it was not transparent, and I started wearing it with more coverage in front. This seemed to solve the problem.
I have found that if you are not pushy but casually friendly, people are more tolerant of skimpy swimwear. It also helps to be somewhat discreet and avoid children if possible. I disagree that it is harmful to kids, but I am aware that some people hold that opinion. And it also helps if you are active in your condominium association. I have been on our condominium board of directors a couple of years, and I am president during this current year. And as I said, I have very little problem with wearing a thong at the condominium pool.

I usually do laps in swim briefs.

I called up the pool that I wanted to use and just asked the question, "Do the rules prohibit g-strings?" The woman who answered paused, and then said, no. I've been wearing my g-string (Skinz M55) there ever since. I don't abuse the privilege. I don't hang around. I get in and swim and when I'm done, I wrap a towel and go home.

I used to and I miss it.  This was more than 10 years ago in the pool at the apartment complex.  I got pretty serious about it, and usually had a pull buoy and kickboard with me.  The pool was highly underused, and most nights I had it all to myself, especially in cold weather months and at night.  There was frequently a high school girl that came by to watch over the pool.  I'm not really sure what her job was, but it was some kind of official capacity (i.e. not just hanging out.)  I never thought she was a lifeguard, since the hours were odd and there was rarely anybody in the pool.  Being that I was fairly discrete, I don't know that she ever saw my thongs though.  There was one time we went there with a couple we were friends with (now divorced) and I wore one of my Speedo thongs, but never got a chance to do that again before we bought a house.... a pool-less house. :(

I've done laps in my club pool in my thong for over five years. The first time I asked the health club manager if it was ok to wear thong style swimmers and he said it was fine. Since it is fairly private club in the city, there are some days when there are only a couple of others there on the weekend and so I can walk from the change room to the pool in the thong, towels are provided so pick one up at reception on the way through. No comments at any of it.  A couple of times I've worn HOM g-string swimmers, but not when there have been others in the pool - more a spare of the moment thing.

How's this for interesting..?

The swimwear policy (displayed on a 'Rules and Regulations' board out the front) at my local pool has changed to read as such...

'Swimmers must at all times wear recoginsable swimwear while using the pool'.  Yep, that's it. Word for word.

The term 'Appropriate Swimwear' has been removed. This, I think, confirms my interpretation of the rule to mean you can't wear something like dirty work clothes or something silly like motorbike boots in the pool. It's not about determining the style you choose to wear. This is re-enforced by the change of wording more than anything.

Well, at least I know I can choose a thong if I want to...

Would be interesting to know why they made the change.  Have you seen folks wearing 'not recognizable swimwear'?  Last I checked, years ago, my health club pool said 'appropriate swimwear', too.  I'd better recheck it, because if it now says 'recognizable', then my thongs should do just as well as my bikinis, and will be so much more fun.  Glad you posted!

Are you sure recongnizable means you can wear a thong?  I'm thinking if your fat, and your thong string gets buried in a fold of fat, that would make it non-recognizable.  So you might want to rethink your swimwear choice, if indeed they changed thier terminology to "recognisable"...  Why not take a pic of the sign and post it. I think a few of us would be interested in the change so we could show it to our local pools.

Yes, I do wear a thong, when I swim in the local, indoor pool. But I'm doing back crawl, so it's not really visible except, when I'm turning. I haven't managed to learn "front crawl" - ordinary crawl - until now, and if I would be doing that, I'm not sure I would wear a thong. Probably I would be so concerned if people would look or not look at my butt and the whole thing would ruin my swimming. A bit ridicuously perhaps, but that is how things are.

The ladies we wearing suits that looked a size to small. My mother in law made a comment that tiny swimwear is fine but some guys just cant pull it off.

Competitive swimmers will size down one or two sizes when competing so water doesn't get trapped in the suit. When training they'll either wear a snug suit or a drag suit. You can always spot the triathlete from the competitive swimmer, they're the ones who don't size down and are constantly adjusting their suits.

I tired the same thing at my gym and at a public pool.  I have some swim thongs from International Jock  made by LASC that are very good They have many colors and sizes to choose from.  I started my swim next to a swim group doing water aerobic with about 15 women and one male lap swimmer.  I decided to get in quickly and swim backstroke only.  The manager of the gym walked by and there were no complaints but I was nervous at first.  I just pretended to ignore everyone.  I was a bit nervous at first but I kept on swimming and swimming. 

I have now used a swim suit thong now about 25 times at my gym.  I have only seen one other swimmer (a girl) wearing a thong swim suit. Most guys wear baggy board shorts.  I think there are more wearing a bikini style since I started wearing a swim thong. 

My experience at the Public pool crowded with 150 swimmers was that no one noticed for the first hour it seemed.  All of the life guards liked it when I asked them and said they had seen Speedo thongs and the internet but never saw anyone wear them.  I guess Speedo stopped making swim suit thong.. 

The next time I came to swim, the pool manager, a middle aged female asked me to wear something more conservative.  I went back a year later, with a different lifeguard and manager and swam 120 laps mostly freestyle for 2 hours with 40 other people in the pool and there were no complaints. 

So if you have a thong swim suit and are in reasonable good shape go for it. Wear the thong for lap swimming! 

There will be enough people that like to see it and it will overcome most complaints.
(I live in the ultraconservative state of Alabama so, I think this is a good sign for other parts of the country.)

Hmmm . . . . I'm in very good shape, and look good in my Speedo thongs (even my wife says so).  But here in ultra-liberal Connecticut, it doesn't fly at my town pool and at my health club.

Wore them several times at my town's outdoor pool during adult time late afternoon -- all the kids have to exit at the whistle, and wait a half-hour for their turn again.  After awhile, the head lifeguard pulled me aside and said several mothers had complained about the brevity of my suits, but that they had no rules against it, so it was totally up to me whether I continued, or switched to something more conservative.  I said I'd switch because of course I want to be a good neighbor, though I added that it's the suit I wear at the beach all the time, said to assure them it was my normal swimwear, and perfectly acceptable elsewhere.

After spending all January on the beach in Naples, FL in nothing more that a thong, I came home with strong tan lines and the determination that I'd finally wear my Speedo thongs in the pool at my health club.  After six or eight times, a staffer requested I wear suits with more coverage, there had been complaints.  Heck, folks had seemed very friendly and accepting, many of them my long-term colleagues at work before my recent retirement.  

It takes only a few to spoil things, and an area's liberal politics is no guarantee of tolerance of edgy swimwear.  Though I wonder, what if it had been a female?!

My gym just recently opened a pool. I had been doing laps in my thong, but today was told I had been making other members uncomfortable and that I was violating the dress code. They were polite about it, and I was apologetic. I won't be able to swim in my thong there anymore, and I'm kinda wondering if I have been blacklisted from the pool area altogether. The woman who spoke to me was stammering a bit, and wasn't entirely clear if I just couldn't wear my thong or if I couldn't be there at all. I think I'll give it a couple weeks and try again, but this time in something more conservative. Oh well.

Chithonger, I think you're good to go.  Back into the pool, that is.  A year ago, after returning to New England from a month of thonging on the beach in Naples, FL, I began wearing my Speedo thongs at my health club pool.  After about a month, a staffer notified me others were complaining, would I please wear suits with more coverage.  She was polite; I was polite, too, though not apologetic, and assured her I would comply.  Which I did, immediately, but never stopped hitting the pool.  I was well-known there, a 30 year member at this corporate facility, and though retired now, I see former colleagues all the time.  So naturally I wanted to cooperate.  Probably bad judgment on my part to think others wouldn't care, even as I felt great doing bare-butt laps and sitting in the whirlpool.

 I guess I find it frustrating that other people would care that much. The pool itself is not visible outside the pool area, so no one walking by would see and no one in the lobby area can see. I minded my own business, never loitered, never flaunted. Just swam. That other people thought that was such a huge problem is something I guess we male thongers might never fully get past.
