 People I talk to mention not wearing thongs around kids.  But I think kids do not care or notice a someone's swimwear.  Kids are mostly in their own world and they just want to play or have their needs met.  Granted they may ask a question about someone's buns showing but I think it can be quickly forgotten especially if the parents give an answer that is not scary or threatening.  I think adults have the greater problem and sometime pass those concerns and issues onto their children.

Couldn't agree more with 32189.

While I've no doubt some adults honestly think thong wearers are a threat to a child's mental well being, many simply use children as an excuse for their own insecurities.

 The kids angle is applied to more conservative suits of various bikini styles as well as thongs.  I agree with Grabeach that many simply use children as an excuse  for either insecurities or their personal attitudes, or whatever.  While I notice kids, especially smaller ones, sometimes looking, I think their are just taking in the world like they do with everything else.  I don't think it warps them or upsets them except top the extent that they have been taught against such things already.  
I swim laps in a public pool, and i never wear a thong.  I'd prefer to wear skimpy bikinis, but the management, who tolerate that themselves, get complaints.  So I have to limit it to skimpy speedo styles.  I try to avoid kids, not to avoid adversely affecting them, which I don't think is a problem, but to avoid the hassle of adults.

Young kids only care about what they are doing, and a radius of about 2 metres around themselves!
As they get a little older, they notice things that are different from the norm, but only from an inquisitive point of view.
Then they start school, and society worms it way into their brains...

After a total of about five hours walking on the beach through some of the most crowded areas Australia has to offer, I've concluded there are only a very small percentage of people with an actual problem about thong wearing. I swam at a crowded swimming complex this week as well, in an Olaf Benz black thong. One pool had around 20 squad members training (including an Australian Olympian) and three coaches, while the next pool where I swam laps had at least 25 people across 10 lanes of varying ages (15-75yo) and four attendants. Yeah sure, a few people had a good look, and maybe commented to someone close by, but nobody commented to me, while a few engaged in the usual 'Hello' or small talk. Just normal stuff. I got no more reaction than when I wear my bright coloured (flouro pink, yellow, green, orange) Waveline 1" briefs. 

The more you do it, the easier it is to feel and act comfortably, and that's when you are accepted more readily. So, do it.

 Well I finally got the courage to do it. I have worn rio cuts to LA Fitness but last week I decided what the heck and proudly put on my thong and walked out of the dressing room to the pool. I rinsed off then jumped into the pool and swam laps for a short while. I then got out and went in the hot tub. It felt pretty good just wearing a thong with two walls of glass to the outside and reception desk. No one said anything to me, not expecting them to, but if you act as though it is normal procedure, most people accept.  Looking forward to doing again. The more people do it, the more accepted.

Poimbeach, you're not home and hosed yet. The times that I have been asked to 'cover up' at a local Olympic pool have usually been on the second visit. I figured it usually takes a bit of time for any complaint to work its way through the system. At the other extreme, at one pool I was once asked to cover up for the first time on my 68th visit. Fortunately this was only for that day.

This is an awesome message board.  At first my gym had a sign posted stating that thongs were not allowed.   However I wore a speedo swim thong and swam laps while a women' water aerobics class was going on.  There were no complaints.  Then I noticed that the signs were changed to say only that cut offs were not allowed and that only swimwear was allowed. (The kind of swimwear was not listed) Also required was a soap shower before swimming.  So I have been able to wear swim thongs now for the last four years for lap swimming.  I think if you are a swimmer and fit, then you should try the swim thong at the local gym.  Does anyone have experience wearing a swim jock for lap swimming?  The swimjock is a new style sold at Cover Male and Joe Snyder and some others that is like a thong since it does not provide any rear coverage.

Over the last four years, I’ve swum laps and sunned 357 times (yes I do keep a diary) at 23 different Sydney and Wollongong outdoor pools. That is the type that you usually pay to enter and have a pool manager and lifeguards. Some of these had gyms, some didn’t. Occasionally I've had the place to myself, sometimes I've had trouble finding room for my towel on the grass. For various reasons I have only been to several of these pools once or twice. About half have been ten or more visits and the most visits to a single pool is 89. For what it’s worth here are my suggestions.

From my observations and occasional discussions with them, it is apparent that with regard to ‘showing your bum’ swimwear, managers and lifeguards only have a problem if somebody complains. Once that happens you will be asked to ‘cover up’, though some of those I’ve got to know reasonably well will try and talk the complainer around. With the above in mind, it is logical that one does their best to avoid complaints, while still achieving their desired aim. While it may be liberating to wander to and from the change rooms or to the shop in your thong, this will greatly increase the odds of someone complaining. Ditto if you plant yourself near a group of young kids taking swimming lessons. They probably won’t even notice, but their parents will.

So if you like the feeling of actually swimming in a thong, then I’d suggest keeping your shorts on till you’re about to enter the water and do so from the least crowded end of the pool. Wrap a towel around you when walking back to the showers. In my case, I like to lie in the sun in a g-string and read and don’t care what I wear in the pool (board shorts the exception of course). To this end I wear 25mm side swim briefs while swimming my laps and generally keep a low profile while sunning. Depending on the pool this may actually be choosing a popular area where many others are laying out so I blend in. It is rarely near the picnic tables where large family groups congregate. Common sense will usually tell you the best place to sun. If your thing is strutting around so that everybody notices you, I’d recommend you go to a beach instead. At most pools you won’t last very long.

Finally, sometimes even after doing all the right things someone will still complain and a lifeguard will ask you to cover up. They don't get any joy out of having to do this, so don't argue. Be friendly, politely accept their decision and there's a reasonable chance next time you're there you won't have any problems.

 It makes a lot of sense to wrap a towel around when wearing a thong at a public swimming pool while walking around before and after coming from the pool.
If anyone had a negative vibe against men wearing thongs in public, I reckon that the towel around the waist would definitely tone the perception down.   And if anyone wanted to complain,  it would not succeed because the guy is obviously not showing off.
It shows a confident guy who happens to wear a thong and doesn't pretend to be a show off .
I love the idea of walking around wearing just at thong at the public pool, but I prefer to leave that for the beach.  There's something about the beach that makes it so different and more acceptable.   Perhaps it's the perception of more family oriented environment that prevails at swimming pools.

 I think John makes a very valid point. I was recently traveling in China and always stay in hotels with pools. The Westin in Xi;'an has a beautiful big lap pool and I wore a towel to and from the men's locker room. There was some notice, but no big deal. I think it was more related to the brevity of the garment than my backside, since I was sitting on a lounge at the time. China is a pretty conservative place and even though hotels tend to be full of "global" people, I was still careful. Interestingly, the men using the sauna, steam and whirlpool were all nude despite the posted requirement for"swimwear" in the list of "no alcohol", "don't do this if you're pregnant" etc. on the locker room wall.

 I have recently joined a hotel leisure club in our nearby city. I use the facilites 3 times per week. After working out in the gym I use the pool for lap swimming. As it tends to be mornings it is always quiet therefore I wear a g string and triangle top. No one has made a comment so far !  I sometimes wait until the lifeguard is at poolside checking water levels before exiting the pool. Swimming to the shallow end steps, removing my googles then standing up. I then slowly walking up the steps ensuring that I slide my fingers round the sides of my string pulling it high on my hips. I am such a tease. If the pool is very quiet I do enjoy lying in the steam room topless, only once have I had someone else in with me and he did not mind ! !   I do act responsibly if there are children around and wear a high cut Ujena one piece.

Good on ya  Swimbabe... I doubt you would get any negative reactions;  you probably would if you were a male.  It's great that you are contributing to make wearing a thong normal in swimming pools too.
I'm sure the lifeguard has aleady checked you out while you swim;  the shape of the bathers people wear is quite easy to distinguish from outside the pool.But for the part of your exit from the  pool, it  requires to be a bit more refined   I believe there's a split of a second when a male can check her out upside down in detail (and why not a bit of lust), that feels so good.  I do it all the time and must admit have become almost an expert;   the trick is don't let her realise that you have  'absolutely' checked her out.

 I'm jealous of you Swimbabe.  In a previous posting in this thread I had said that a 70 year old woman complained about a cheeky suit.  Just in the past 3 weeks there have been women in the same style of cheeky suits at the club.  When the weather gets really nice I'm sure there will be a lot more.  I wonder what the 70 year old prude will be saying about them?   I may wear my JS mini-cheek when there are lot of women wearing them.  I would think that if she says my suit is inappropriate that I'd have to ask her about all of the women with their butt cheeks on display.

On arriving recently at one of my favourite Olympic pools, I realised I didn't have the briefs that I wear when doing laps. I had come by public transport , so returning home to re-equip was not an option. Bit the bullet and did the laps in Lane 1 in my Skinz M1R2 g-string. The lifeguard standing nearby didn't say a thing. A guy in Lane 2 coaching his 10? year old daughter was quite friendly. A regular mega-lap swimmer and local identity who I often chat with was leaving after trying out a new type of long sleeve / long leg sun suit for swimming. We exchanged friendly barbs about the other's attire. A few other people in the vicinity didn't pay any attention.

Not withstanding the successful outcome, I will stick with the more conservative styles for laps. While it didn't happen, it felt like I could slip out of the g at any time. This has happened in choppy harbour / ocean pools on occasions, but one is far less visible there than in a clear Olympic pool. And as I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm sure regularly swimming laps in a g would increase the chance of someone complaining, which may then jeopardise my continued ability to lay out in a g after swimming my laps.

 I’ve been wearing my JOR Ipanema thong at Lifetime Fitness to swim laps and in hot tub. No one has said anything. I do cover up with a towel to walk around the pool usually.  I’ve even worn my JS g-string before and people ha no reaction. This was later in the evening so there were less people and no only adults present. 
When I swim with my kids I wear my Rufskin cheeky swimsuit and no reaction from anyone.

 The past 2 summers I have been able to stay most of the summer at a lake cabin in northern Wisconsin, U.S.A.  I enjoy swimming laps parallel to the shore and most often wear a thong. Only on weekends when there are a lot of boats on the lake, I wear a Speedo type suit.  I know I've been seen by passing boaters, but I'm concentrating on my swimming, so I don't notice.  Frankly I don't care.  It feels great to swim in a thong.

Tonight, i did my usual swim training (3 times each week, 2 miles each time) during the public hours. I wore a cheeky swimsuit. With this cheeky swimsuit, half of my buns are uncovered. During the training, a woman (i must admit i have never noticed her) told me : "Hello, you don't have your usual swim caps, with skulls" It is true i had a swim caps with skulls 6 months ago. I answered immediatly "No, i wear the swim cap of my triathlon team now". It is very funny that this woman notice my swim cap but didn't say a word about my cheeky swimsuit whereas my swimsuit was more noticeable than my swim cap.

I have been swimming laps in either a rio or thong at LA Finess for the last year or so. I will wear a Desmitt thong or I have a new one that is multi colored with lime green beyond the front and rear patch which is see thru. It has a tie string and not a lot of elastic in the waist band so you must tie it or the whirlpool will literally pull it off. I love swimming laps in a thong. I still am a little cautious wearing just a thong in the pool bunever has been an issue. The other day, one of the sales people was showing a new guest the pool when I was swimming laps in my thong. Never had any second look at all. During the week I wear the rio or cheeky suits. I usually pull them up pretty high so they become a thong.li makes more fun that way.

I have found that a Desmitt thong is now my new favorite for doing laps in the pool. I tried a couple other thongs to see how I would like them but they were just a tad too small while swimming with others. I swam in a joe Snyder rio thong and really had to be careful and then I tried my skinz thong which felt great but still on the small side. When I tried the Desmitt thong for laps I was hooked.

Having the drawstring to keep it in place was a huge plus and also it looks like a basic speedo in the front and sides. I don’t flaunt around in it ,but I feel better wearing that in front of the other swimmers.

I keep a speedo brief close by the pool with my towel just Incase a situation happens where I don’t want to show people I’m in a thong. Occasionally a younger swim team will be in there and their parents hanging around watching them. That’s when I usually hold off wearing a thong and put a speedo on.

Nothing is better though when you have the whole pool to yourself or if only a couple people are there and you get to swim, walk around in your thong at the pool. When it’s crowded I tend to cover up quicker while getting in and out of the pool but if it’s slow then it’s a great feeling being carefree.

Desmiit has been my go to thong for lap swimming lately too. I’ve mentioned it in other posts, but essentially that’s really been the only swimsuit I’ve been swimming laps in the last few months. It’s the most comfortable for swimming laps. The drawstring really helps and it’s the perfect coverage- not too tiny that I’m afraid it won’t stay on while swimming and not too bulky where there’s too much material.  Where are you guys(and gals) swimming laps?

The gym I go to has an outdoor pool, but it only has 4 lanes. Since it's not a big pool, I wear my swim trunks when there are people around. A few weeks ago, I got a day off, and since it was nice outside, I decided to go to the pool at noon. I got there and there was no one at the pool. Fortunately, I had my Gregg Homme thong swimsuit with me (I'm always prepared), so I quickly went to the changing room and got changed. Before going into the pool, I took a photo to commemorate this moment. I was just so happy to have the whole pool to myself. I got into the pool, and I felt this rush of adrenaline as the water touched my bare cheeks. It was a now or never moment. After an hour of doing laps, I started to see people by the pool. They were all just chilling by the pool, and they didn't mind me at all. I got tired after an hour, so I decided to lay out by the pool. The pool wasn't overcrowded, so I was able to get my own space by the pool. More people showed up after 2, and that meant more people got to see me in a thong. No one said a thing about my thong, but I had this interesting encounter with a chick around my age. Even though the pool wasn't overcrowded, this chick decided to camp next to me. I checked her out before she laid down, and I saw her with full back bikini bottoms on. She had a book and had earplugs on, so I just left her alone and I got some shut-eye. 30 minutes went by and I turned around so that I could tan the other side. The bikini chick was still next to me and she was laying on her stomach. And right there, I was able to see her butt cheeks. Did she change while I was asleep? I looked closely, and I realized that she had bunched up her bikini bottoms so that she could tan her cheeks. I had so many questions for her, but I decided to leave her alone because I didn't want to come off as a creep. She soon left, and I also went inside because it was getting cold. I haven't gone swimming since then because the temperature has been droppping. I'll have to look for an indoor pool, but I don't think I'd have this much freedom at an indoor pool.

Wore my Desmitt thong to the gym pool. Seen two couples in the whirlpool when i entered the pool deck. When i entered the steps whirlpool after hanging my towel, the two couples became very quite when the ladies noticed what i had on eyeballing me closely. After few minutes they all left the pool facilty. When i started my laps in the pool i noticed the one couple stop pausing outside the pool observing me. There reactions upon looking at me was confusion. Maybe the woman wanted to set some label or never seen a male in a thong before. 

Did notice one of the females leaving the pool and whirlpool quickly covered up her bikini bottoms with a towel on the pool deck. While the other female bigger boned and booty had wedgie bottom one piece swimsuit didn't bother covering up. 

Often when i wear a thong at the pool and seen by woman in skimpy swimwear bottoms they become modest covering up there bottoms with a towel when walking back to the change room. Just think is it because they seen me so non calant and confident walking and showering at the pool deck they become self concious.

Another nice Saturday afternoon at the gym. I wanted to go into the wet area to swim laps in my thong as I normally do but all lanes were full. I had to settle on thonging in the hot tub. No one really gives a second look. I guess thong swimwear is becoming more accepted. I have not gone in the middle of the week at peak hours in a thong but have worn very small rio yellow see thru when wet with no problem.

Beeing stalked at the pool whirlpool. 

Wearing my thong to the pool many have noticed looking in from the big bay wall windows from outside, walking back to the changing room from the gym floor. Seen a lot of smiles from woman and young males alike noticing me swim laps on my back. Suppose many conclude i'm wearing a thong without exposing my backside in the water swimming. Desmiit thong isn't all that small, compared to a  beach muscleskins string.

I've been swimming consistently for many weeks in my various coloured Desmiit thongs. Before i begin to swim i walk overlooking into the whirlpool after my gym workout from outside. Seen couple young attractive woman in the whirlpool when looking in the pool facility from outside before i get changed from my gym outfit. Takes me about 30 minutes to use the steam sauna, shower, change, shave, and fuel up for my swim. 

Long and behold i walked onto the pool deck from the change room and seen the same cute young woman sitting along the whirlpool edge. Felt like these attractive young woman were waiting for something or someone or just enjoying the whirlpool for very long time. I was hanging my towel up on the pool deck exposing my entire thong backside to them and everyone in the pool facility, turning around slowly inching down the whirlpool steps observing peoples faces.

 Cutting across from these cute young females trying to find a spot to sit while other side of the tub was full along the jets. Could see a smirk on one of the female faces.Probably wanting to finally to see, something they rarely or never seen before man in a black thong. Each woman were facing the other one leg in the water while other on the deck of the whirlpool. Walked passing them both finding spot vacated by another gym member just across from them. Had my back entirely towards facing could hear some giggling from them both yet they hid their intentions quietly what they came to observe a male in a thong. While i stood in the whirlpool showing off my whale tail backside peeking out of the bubbling water. Could tell by peripheral vision they kept focusing upon my body.  Soon they began tired and began to leave walking from the water up the steps onto the pool deck to there hanging towels. They kept looking over to see if i would acknowledge there beautiful bodies or what they had on, printed modest one piece swimwear. As they held onto there towels kept walking very slowly to the change room along the entire side of length of the pool deck. Noticed one paranoid woman adjusting her full back bottom not trying showing any butt cheek. While the other had full bottoms as well but deciding to leave it exposing her cheeky butt somewhat fairly modest not obvious. Enjoyed observing there backsides both looking great imagining how they both would look great in a thong.   Amusing to observe some young curious lean half breed cute asian ladies 20 something looking at a male in a thong at the gym pool facility. They all seemed intrigued yet amused to see a male so comfortable walking along in a thong as me. 

Then it occured to me what these young woman think. Why am i wearing a thong for? Is it to get attention reactions from others? Is it to feel sexy showing off my telling body and cheeks, bulge? Is a woman going to be more interested in me wearing it? All these thoughts come to mind pondering wearing my thong as those sexy woman walked away. Thinking to myself what if they were wearing thongs rather full one piece swimsuit bottoms. Surely they had the bodies tand butt to wear such exposing cheeky thongs.  Then i began to think comparing myself to woman, doubting that i look decent in a thong, versus any woman like them. What am i proving, wearing it? Is it the thrill of being seen? Exhibitionism that nobody dares to wear themselves at that pool?. 

The thrill is gone having no anxiety wearing a thong whats so ever. Use to be afraid who seen me, do i leave the whirlpool having everyone look at my backside or wait for them to leave? Now i don't care it seems routine wearing a thong talking to other gym members on the deck of the pool uncovered while others stare at my backside. 

Feel some woman are bit shocked seeing me wear a thong to the gym pool or afraid of me. Recent visit gym buddy chatted as he was about to leave the pool change room doorway i stood in my Desmiit thong on the middle of the pool deck holding only my swimcap. Seen a young female open and enter the pool deck change room door while i had my profile facing her she looked intially shocked upon me while entering the dry sauna. I didn't flinch but i could observe it startled, even may have  uncomfortable seeing someone appearing in a state of undress like me while she was attired in total gym outfit and shoes. Only encouraging thoughts come to my mind is; showing my body in a thong makes some woman self conscious, about there bodies, observing them  afterwards adjusting there backsides, for more coverage either wrapping a towel around there hips or pulling the materail for more coverage on there tush. Only gives me some sense of bearings that i have decent backside compared to general poplulous. Rarely do i get a compliment at the gym pool from any ladies. Although some i know find it most appealing telling me i'm last person to be complaining about to have to wear more at the pool. Maybe that is some reason none from management comes by telling me to wear more when i visit the pool area.

Even after these woman left and i finished my laps in the pool ready to climb out using the ladder. From the reflection of the windows in front of me i noticed a mid age woman in one piece swimming laps next to me. Give a pause looking upon my backside as i climbed out of the pool. Certainly she knew i had on a thong swimming on my back turning around at every lap being in the next lane. Why the stare, but no discernable reaction from her, she just kept on swimming as normal. Later i got out of the dry sauna and started to walk to get my towel going into the change room. Seen the lady swimmer get out of the pool same time as me, walking along the pool deck towards the shower getting her boxed water left nearby and towel. Uneventfully seemed like i had on normal swimwear from her reaction to me wearing a thong. Either she found me horrifying to wear a thong, or couldn't believe man could dare wear it. She was outfitted in standard  full bottom navy one piece swimsuit and swimcap, googles.

Always thought any woman wearing modest swimwear have no regard for anyone wearing a thong be it woman least a man. If i see a woman in cheeky swimsuit is often telling they want to uncover there backsides and accept others more wearing less such as a thong. 

When i seen those two asian half breed young woman i felt they had nice bodies and glutes but have learned behaviour to wear modest swimwear in public. Even though i could tell the other showing more butt cheek then the other probably would enjoy wearing less but afraid to thong in public. While the other mid age lean swimwear lady showed no attention to ever show off her backside eve,r and probably beleives others like myself should follow suit, just a hunch...

My health plan pays for a membership at the "Y". I avoided the pool for years because of the high chlorine which messes up my eyes and the fact there always were tons and tons of kids there. The kids would run around, screem, play in the swimming lanes, etc. It was this bad behavior that I hated -- not the fact they were kids or might have issues with a guy wearing a thong. Last summer two things happened which made the pool more likeable. First, they got a new chemical system and the amount of chlorine is unnoticable. Perhaps they are using a different chemical process. Second, they have a new manager who has put his foot down on wild kids during family swim times, which used to be whenever there were not any classes in progress. Not only are problem children and their parents told to clean up their act, but there area also established adult swim times where 14 and older can swim without any children being present. I decided to check the pool out better. I had one of my thongs in the car, and brought it in for show-and-tell with the manager. I ask if my swimsuit was okay and he said it was. I pointed out that it was a thong, and he said as long as it was not underwear, it would be okay. He did say that they "prefered" that thong wearers not wear G-string type swimsuits during the family hours, but thongs were okay then too. That was the end of the thong conversation. I put my thong on in the locker room, grabbed my towel on the way out (they don't supply towels but make you bring your own), and proceeded to one of the showers at the end of the pool to wash off a bit. Nobody said anything. I then went to the hot tub and then the pool when a swim lane opened up. Again, no comments, but I know there were a few people looking. When I went back to the shower, a 20 something women came by and said she liked my swimsuit. She was wearing only a T-shirt which was about as long as a mini skirt and was showing quite a bit when wet. I said I liked her shirt and she said she was glad that the rules had been relaxed "a bit" and that she liked seeing guys in thongs. I said I was surprised that she could wear just a t-shirt, and she admitted that she didn't know what the policy was, but so far had not gotten into any trouble wearing one. I have been back a few times now. I have not had any issues with wearing a thong, but have not seen the young lady again, so I don't know if she has had any issues or not. I have seen one other guy -- a kid about 17 or 18 in a thong, and several women.

Re:Doing laps in a thong

I’ve had a good few weeks swimming laps in my thongs. I typically wear a thong under my  briefs/speedo/bikini regardless to swim laps and usually there high school swim teams practicing with their coach by the pool. I usually just keep it conservative and just swim with the speedo cover up when they are around.. don’t want any complaints just in case even though there are no rules anywhere about what kind of swimwear to use. I go early in the morning and there are the same 4-5 folks swimming their laps besides the swim teams. We all are pretty much use to each other and even swim in our same lanes each time. Lately the swim teams haven’t been around much so I figured this is the best time to go for swimming in my thong next to those same people. It’s been great and no problems what so ever. I’ve gradually gotten braver and braver to get out of the pool with no towel to wrap myself up quickly. I’m also trying to make it known that I’m wearing a thong but not flaunting or parading around. I just get myself out of the pool and turn my backside toward them as I’m walking to the bench with my bag and towels. I dry off not really trying to cover up. I think now they are getting use to me wearing that and not really thinking of it. That’s exactly what I want.. to be just another swimmer but just wearing a thong. 

One day a guy in a 3 inch speedo was swimming with a lady and they were training together. They picked the lane right next to me and I had already been swimming for 10 min in my thong. Being that he is in a Speedo helps me out because at least another guy is wear a brief of some sort. They were very into their laps timing etc and I was next to them in my thong and they didn’t even notice or care. I was finishing up and they had just done a few laps and were resting at the edge of the pool. They were waiting for the clock to get their next set of laps in and were just talking. I just went for it and got out instead of waiting for them to start swimming again. I got out they both looked up at me and I turned and walked to the bench to dry off giving them a full thong view and not hiding it. I wanted to see their reaction so as I got my towel I turned and looked and they acted like nothing happened and were just taking about when they will go again. It was kind of a great feeling to see it didn’t bother them or they were laughing or giggling. 

2 days later the same guy had just finished his laps and was drying off by the bench I usually put my stuff at. I walked up and put my stuff down at the other end of the bench and gave a kinda hello nod. Again I just acted casual and started to strip to my swim gear under my pants. I kinda hesitated about going all the way to the thong just feet from him but just went what the hell.. the other times I’m usually in a Desmiit thong but this time I was in a slightly smaller brave person thong. I just did it and walked to the pool in the thong and it didn’t seem to faze him at all. Another lady was in her lane as well and saw my thong as I got in and again.. it was all good! I think the key is they are just getting use to me and what I wear and aren’t thinking much of it. Feels good to try this and get to swim more freely. I’ve come a long way.. I use to be nervous about wearing a speedo in front of anyone at this pool. Now it’s the norm for me and I don’t think about it.

its much easier swimming in a thong or speedo type bathing suit then shorts, alot less fabric to weigh you down to, i do alot of water tubing and stuff like that in the summer, its nice to have a bathing thats practical and functional. can't wait to get out on the water this summer, again, its so much fun.

if you are swimming laps in a thong they have already seen your thong swimsuit and it doesnt matter when you get out.  The water is not hiding the fact you are swimming in a thong unless you are swimming on your back the entire time.  Even still it would probably get noticed when you stop at the walls.  Good for you and swimming in one.  I've done that in the past and there was nothing like it.  So wish I could swim in one when doing laps.

@vega1210. You are right, the water hides nothing. But, curiously, i notice that a lot of people are convinced otherwise. Maybe because they don't have swim goggles, so they don't see under the water ? I don't know. When i do my swim laps, i see better what happens under the water that what happens around the pool because my head and my eyes are under the water.

When using hotel pools I will wear whatever - often a Gemali  g string with tiny trianagle back (and what a shame this promising UK manufacturer disappeared without trace).

For my regular lap sessions at my local council run leisure centre pool I feel the need to be more circumspect, with many different people around - other swimmers, pool attendants, swim teachers etc, & of course children during holidays.

So far a J Snyder Kini is the briefest I have worn. Never had any comment but no point in pushing one's luck methinks.

I have been thonging at my local gym pool for some time now. It seems like no one really cares. The most noticeable reaction I have received so far is a double take.
