Thanks Tnline!  How stretchy is the material?  Does the stuffit bikini enhance the bulge much?  And is it seethrough at all?  Just wondering if I should order it for swimming laps or if it's too much for a public pool!

ethan85 - the stuffit is not really intended to  "enhance" the bulge much.  I think the name comes from the fact that it is is a smaller cut overall than a standard pouch.  "See through" would depend on the fabric color and pattern that you choose.  I have a few Skinz pics in my profile.

 I  just got a few new Skinz suits including a M25P-7403 thong.  The PEP lining is comfortable and gives some enhancement but not too crazy compared to designs by other companies.  Also pleased with my new M58U-6503 - cool pattern in ThinSkinz fabric and very low volume pouch.   Returned a M74U-4106 - did not like the fabric and it has more rear coverage than I like in a bikini.

After one year my black standard material Skinz M1R2U adjustable g-string had stretched beyond stand alone swimming. Wearing them under my AussieBums or Waveline for lap swimming got me another year, but the Skinz has now pretty much had it, even for sunning. Had a look on the website and find they now classify this basic product as a "Special Order" and charge $40. Add on the most expensive postage I have ever encountered and it's up to $US67, which is nearly $A90. Ridiculous.

Does anyone know of an equivalent product?

greatname; Not sure if you're replying to me, but BeachDance don't appear to make anything like the Skinz product. They're not g-strings, their brief styles are the unwanted push-out type, and despite this they cover more than a minimised M1R2U.

When I lived in Tampa, I used to buy from the Skinz store in Clearwater. I now live in Texas and order online. I have purchased Joe Snyder and CoverMale but without a doubt my favorite is now the semi-custom suites from BeachnDance.com. Super selection, prices, and fit.

 I bought one of the "cheekini" styles, it looks really flattering good on both the front and the rear. Beware though that the mint color is a tiny bit see through when wet (maybe this is obvious).
Also got a Y back g-string (M31). The back strap is wider than the styles with the ring in the back, meaning its probably legal to wear in places where thongs are but the "string" back g-strings are not. The front is also a good bit more modest than the stuffit g-strings as well. 
Has anyone tried the tan through fabrics?

I have been buying Skinzwear for years and like their product . All of the male styles work at beachtown . Even the micro gstring is completely legal and I have never had an issue. In fact , skinz is conservative compared to some of the European gstrings or koala or even the new joe synder sock it thong or gstring styles . I wear lots of the Arroyman bulge thongs at east beach in either mesh or sheer fabrics

Sign up for their newsletter or maybe that just goes out to previous customers.   They do sometimes send out discount offers, but very rarely.   I've read on this board that their prices are much, much cheaper in their store in Clearwater, Florida.   Well, I don't think I'll be shopping in there myself.

Got some new Skinz!
Started out with low rise and regular trunks. Honestly the regular cut seems more comfortable to me. The low cut seems to contour to my body more in the rear, giving me great definition, but is kinda uncomfortable in how it handles the junk in the front. The normal cut I could definitely wear around conservative family members on vacation without any problems. 
I also picked up a thinskinz stuffit g-string. While its very small and sexy and makes my ass look fantastic, I actually don't find the stuffit pouch to be all that flattering being cut so low. It also feels a bit on the small side for containing my package. It left an imprint on my butt where the ornament connector was, which is kinda annoying. I think I prefer the Y-string from skinz due to the more roomy and higher cut front pouch and lack of the connector ornament in back. Although the back on that suit is more like a thong.
The final thing I picked up was one of the tan thru suits with the normal rio cut and it fits great and is fairly comfortable. Was worried that it would be too see through but you really can't tell what is under it even right after coming out of the water. The fabric is a bit more abrasive than the other fabrics, but not so much so that its uncomfortable for a couple hours. Wouldn't wear it all day though.

 Sadly Skinz Stuffit suits are designed to accommodate the package size of a 3 year year old boy with undecended testicles.  If you have been blessed with any notable size don't waste your money on a Stuffit suit unless you want to look like Katlyin Jenner... Muscleskins has it right as does Jovana, Dore,  TangaLand, DuBio, Tendenze, to name a few.  Of course the femimized or asexual look continues to gain traction...

 I thought the Stuffit g-string  was way too small when I first got it, but after wearing it several times, it stretched out a bit, and I got the knack of putting it on (the name is the clue), I find it fits fine, if a little wider than I might like. I am of average size.

 Hi guys - looking into my first Skinz order and wanted to tap into the wisdom of the group here.
 I know there’s been a lot of questions about sizing, which i’ve been reading about. This made me realize that i’d really like some  objective measirements. I think that would help a lot of people, not just me.  
As far as pouch width and height, if any owner could share the measurements of the pouch when it’s folded in half like this picture (scroll to picture #5 to see what I mean) : https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183085287194

This way, we can compare that to what we already own folded the same way. Please share the height also, which is not shown in the picture example above. To be consistent, let’s say we measure from the top of the pouch vertically down to (=perpendicular to the top line, not towards) the point where the pouch meets the rear string. In other words, the width and height measurements are perpendicular to each other. 

I’m wondering about M55 and M31, size S vs XS vs M, so the measurements of those would be awesome, but I’m sure people can use the info on other models. 

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Here’s a review of the smallest Skinz g-strings. I bought an M52 when it was first available, and I still have this suit and it is wearable 13 years later. It is a teardrop style. The M85 is also a teardrop, was first offered last year, and it differs by being an inch shorter on top and slightly narrower. The M85 is not in the catalogue this year, but still on their web site. The straps on both M52 and M85 come together at the back to make a Y shape at the butt cheeks. I like how the two straps join together and make a 3/4 inch backstrap for more rear crack coverage. Both M52 and M85 fit well for my average size. 

I got an M52 in black powernet fabric and M85 with crimson red powernet. Neither dark fabric when new is see through, even when wet. However, after 5 years of use the black powernet started getting see through, and after seven years was fishnet, so it was for home use only. 

I got the tan through fabric on an M85 and you can read large print through the fine mesh up close but it’s not see through when you’re wearing it because of the print pattern. Kind of silly having such a small suit in tan through, but the thin fabric is light and quick drying. 

The M1R2 can be adjusted so it is narrow but can be wider if you want. It is easier to make it narrower with a thin fabric. The M1R2 side straps join in back to make a Y at a metal fastener, but the backstrap is the same narrow width as the side straps. 

I’ve worn all three styles on beaches and at resort hotel pools with no problems. It’s best to be hairless down there for all three to look good. Skinz products cost more but are well made and last long.

It’s hard to find actual sizing information with dimensions on web sites, so here’s measurements in inches taken from the suits I have. All are size “small”. All have a “Y” profile over the butt cheeks. I measured the length and width of the connecting waist strap from top of pouch to connection to backstrap, the pouch dimensions with length top to bottom at the side and greatest depth from side to center seam, and the backstrap length.

M85: waist strap 3/8 wide and 13 ? long, top of pouch 5/8 to ?, pouch length 6 ?, pouch depth 2 ? to 3, and backstsrap 4 ? to 4 ?.

M52: waist strap 3/8 wide and 13 ? long, top of pouch 7/8 to 1, pouch length 7 to 7 ?, pouch depth 2 ? to 3, and backstsrap 4 ?.

M1R2: waist strap 3/8 wide and 13 long, top of pouch 1 ? narrowest and 2 ? to 3 ? widest depending on fabric, pouch length 8, pouch depth 2 ? to 3, and backstsrap 4 ?.

For comparison, the teardrop ring g-string at Rubbertreelatex.com has the following: waist strap 1/4 wide and 12 long, top of pouch ?, pouch length 7, pouch depth 2 ?, and backstsrap 2 ?. The connecting straps are not covered by fabric.

Skinz suits seem to look larger when you don’t have them on, but are minimal coverage when you have them on. All of them cover me adequately. You have to point down and nothing flops around. 

The rubbertreelatx ring g-string has the smallest profile but still covers. Up close it is obvious I am hairless, from neck down. The top of the pouch is at the base of the shaft for all except the M52, which is an inch higher.

When I was placing my first order I too wanted to get size info for the pouches of several thong and bikini styles.  Here is what I received from customer service which was very helpful in determining my selection of a StuffIt Thong and M63 3/4 back bikini.  I like both of them and do recommend the PEP lining for a little extra lift in front.  Whach out for pricing on that as it might be a special order and end up costing $15.

Here are the measurements you requested for size large of the following suits. (in inches).  Keep in mind that these measurements are off of a digital pattern. They will be slightly smaller when sewn due to seam allowances.Some fabrics stretch more than others.
1st measurement – top of waist to crotch seam
2nd measurement- left side of pouch to right side of pouch. (at widest point)
If front of pouch is 2 pieces (seamed in middle) the measurement will be the amount of fabric and not necessarily the measurement from side to side since the seamed suits fit more of a frontal position.
M73- 7.1, 7.0
M74- 7.79, 7.0
M77- 7.5 ,7.2
M79- 7.4, 7.2
M25- 9.9, 6.8
M29- 9.8, 6.9
M54- 9.0, 6.85
M57- 8.6, 7.6
M63- 9.0, 7.4
M67- 8.18, 7.1

I recently ordered an M77 Stuffit Thong in black, and an M67 Thong in ThinSkinz black.  I love both!
I'm pretty sure the M77 is going to be my standard tanning and beach thong now.  The fit is amazing.
The M67 is great as well, and I'd wear it for the more modest front, but the ThinSkinz is more see through than I had hoped.  The fabric feels amazing though!  If they weren't so expensive, I think they'd make for great underwear.

 ShadowT I am wearing an M77U right now as underwear and it indeed is a great thong and one of my favorites. I wore one all day long the first day of Sunsplash last July to maximize my thong tan lines. The wider side straps and sexy thong curve in the rear make for some sexy tan lines. I am going to change it up this year at Sunsplash and go with a different thong for my tan lines. Just doesn't seem right to wear the same suits that I wore last year. I will likely go with thinner side straps and a smaller triangle in the rear.Bryan

If you haven't ordered one of their suits with the "Thin Skinz" material, you're missing out. I ordered two M25s last year I believe. one Red Thin Skinz and the other just standard black. The red one has become a very common choice for everyday wear. 
I've had an M67 in the past and was pleased with it. I currently have an M77 that gets frequent use. I'd honestly prefer to have the 67 over the 77.

Congratulations to Skinzwear for:

- Getting their 2019 catalog out in the first week of 2019, at least the online version.

- Featureing some younger men as models.

- Color selections on thongs that don't look like they were assmebled by the color blind. 


However:  I do understand the online version of the catalog is a conversion form the paper format, but unlike the paper, where one can flick through to find things of intrest, the online is a tad bit dificult to navigate. 

With their "catalog" no only do you need to select the buy button to know how much or what it is made from, but one has to scroll each page up and down or left and right to see everyting on the page. Skinz regular online website is a LOT eayser to navigate.  


Also, anyone else got sticker shock at their $40 price for simple thongs and g-strings?

JM, I love the quality and the fit of Skinzwear thongs and g-strings. I only buy suits from them if they are on sale. I gag at the thought of paying $30 for a suit that barely covers me, especially since the cheapest shipping is $7.95, making one suit $38. Even if a thong or g-string had gold threads in the material, I would never buy one for $40. There are other companies that make great suits for way less.

@JM - the sticker shock is a bit much, but i find skinz quality quite high. The suits I buy from them usually last multiple seasons. I think the oldest skinz suit I have is a yellow gstring that's about 12 years old; I don't wear it much as I like the newer gstring with the tri-ring metal back connector. For the past three years my tanline has been a skinz m77 thong.

I love the fit and quality of Skinzwear suits, but paying $40 for a g-string or thong that is less than 5 or so square inches is insane, especially when the minimum shipping is $7.95 and that will probably go up as the USPS is raising prices this month. I will still buy suits on sale if they are the type I wear in a decent color.

I agree with you Tobias. Skinz' shipping rates are really high, too high. The $7.95 you mention is for USA only. For foreign countries like the Netherlands the minimum shipping is $27.00!! That is more then 3 times the domestic shipping and almost the price of an extra suit. The strange thing is I sent two thongs, to be sold during the Thonger's Weekend, to Luvnmythong in the USA. The shipping cost was only 4 Euro's, which is about $3.50. I really like Skinz' suits; I have two of them. The quality is superb and they last long. But I think I will not add more to my collection!

yes i agree skinzwear is great quality.  My comment was always that i thought they were too high priced and now a price hike. Plus their shipping rate.  Last check they weren't using gold thread.... Sorry Skinz Wear you should have found a way to keep your prices down and maintain quality. It can be done.  Material costs is in my estimation maybe $4.00 a thong.  I won't be paying $40.00 a piece.  Best of luck to you.

I will continue to buy from Skinz wear as they have custom patterns in my name that I order. Just received 7 new thongs and one rio two days ago. Skinz for me, seem to be they only thongs and bikinis for men that I am fully satisfied with. So I am willing to pay the prices. At some point though, they will have to offer the mix of styles custom work again which they no longer do. Last time I asked Tanya said they could not do that anymore because their seamstress retired. I would think it would not be that difficult to hire a seamstress that can do the work. I am going to write them again and ask, and let them know, they are raising prices and losing customers without really offering something tangible in return to justify the prices. As far as their prices go, they are still much cheaper, with more fabric color selections than Wicked Weasel which I buy for my girlfriend. I've spent hundreds of dollars on her Weasels LOL!

I'm a big fan of the Skinz M60. They market it as a stripper/flopper thong, but for those of us with bigger packages it really is great both as underwear and swimwear, and not any more audacious than wearing a "normal" pouch thong at the beach, in my opinion. I think it's actually better than having your parts spill out the sides! Highly recommend it, especially in their nylon/lycra fabric range.

I get the M31 or M25. I'd rather have a smaller thong or g-string and they have a few that are smaller than those... but the smaller suits have that stupid metal piece connecting the strings in the back. First, I would imagine that it might get hot and a good day in Florida... but other than that, the metal piece makes the suits just look so stupid. I refuse to buy one with that metal piece. Even when Skinzwear did a survey asking what "we" wanted, I said that I wanted the small g-strings available without that stupid metal piece... but they sure have not listened. :(

Custom orders 

I have had good luck with custom orders from skins but i’ve Never ordered anything that far out of the ordinary. Since they dropped men’s tie side suits. I’m thinking of ordering a women’s tie side bikini with a male front pouch - the pistol style pouch.


Has anyone ever custom ordered anything like that from skins?

I have purchased many suits for my self and the wife i agree they are a pit pricey especially with there shipping cost. The quality and fit is very good I did have one problem with a g-string suit it took them three tries as the person who was building them was not putting a lock stitch where the string gets to the T but after three times they finally got it right so if you buy a g-string give a slight tug to this area to ensure they don't come apart.
