Sizing Question...

I normally wear a Large in Calvin Klein, Papi, etc...thongs and undies...Looking at Skinz sizing it seems they are a "bit smaller" than L

Large = 33" - 35"
XL = 36" - 40"

I am thinking the large, but I don't want the strings to be too small...I am looking at:

Men's Adj Micro G String (M1R2)
and one other
Maybe a Stuffit, or a Bravura or Roman Thong

Any recommendations?

 Most people who are larger do not have very firm bodies.  Therefore thongs with more width in the side straps rather than very narrow strings spread the load better and don't cut in.  I find that of all the brands I own, Skinzwear and Manstore have the least stretch in the side strings of their g-string or string side suits. Very little give at all.  So when the side stings get narrow you may want to size up or you will end up with the string digging into your skin which emphasizes any sub surface fat you may have.

I have quite a few suits from Skinz and think their suits fit pretty true to size. If you are a "L" in Calvin's, you should get a "L" in Skinz. I would be more concerned about the pouch size. I bought one M1R2, but was not able to fit into comfortably. In fairness the website and customer service person that I spoke to  warned me that the suit was skimpy, but there really is not breathing room.  I think you should get an M1R or Brauva. Just my 2 cents.

I have one skinz suit and it is awesome.  It is a half back bravura.  It is perfect for hotel pools and other more conservative beaches where a thong is not going to cut it. I love the pouch on the suit, and overall, it is very well made.  The only thing i dont like about it is that the front does not line up with my muscleskins MP's, so my tan line would get messed up if I wore it alot

I received my Spartan G String and it is TINY although with allot of effort and adjustments, I was able to fit into the pouch. It is very sexy but probably not appropriate for most public beaches since the tear drop cut really accentuates to male form. However, this will be a fun suit for private pool parties and other non public venues.

I did not buy my spartan thong for private pools or privat beaches. I think this swimsuit is wonderful sexy.
I bought it to wear and to show it at public beaches and public pools too.

I just received a new Bravura thong from Skinz and I love the look. The pouch is perhaps the narrowest I have ever worn but it does cover all that needs to be covered (barely). For some reason the 3/4" side and back straps make this suit seem fairly conservative and I plan to wear it proudly to the beach. Thoughts on this thong?

Skinz suits are the only ones I wear. I just placed and order for 6 more yesterday. Thier customer service is great. Yesterday afternoon I got a phone call from Eric at skinz informing me of a fabric they do not have on stock...I just placed this order....on a Saturday morning.....and already they are on the game plan. Great company.

I ordered these styles...M46, M31, M57, M27 styles, all unlined. In the future I would like to see the side straps even thinner.

The only non-muscleskins thong that I own is a Skinz Bravura.  They are totally awesome.  I love the cut of the back.  The pouch does what Joe Snyder fails to do...it is super narrow and skimpy BUT it covers you completely so you dont spill out the sides.  It is one awesome suit!!!

In my 30 years of thonging the Bravura has beomce my hands down favorite for sunning. Like stanpuppy, I could never fit into the Joe Snyder Narrow Pouch Thong. I think that I might have to buy one in every color and fabric!

Re:SkinzWear.com - Skinz Wear - Florida

I tried a Joe Snyder narrow thong, and it simply doesn't fit.

But-I completely agree with the comments about the Bravura!  For me, it is the best fitting thong off the shelf.  It has a sleek cut and manages to keep everything covered.  It's practicality goes beyond sunning...I played tackle beach football with some friends wearing an orange tiger mesh Bravura, and it stayed in place the entire time.  I didn't even have to think about it.  Although it was mesh, you couldn't tell, and I even got some sun through the mesh.  My only complaint is the tanline isn't a small as I'd like.

The only thong I have that fits better is custom made.

 I also have a Bravura. It's wet look black and it's one of my favourites. The fit and quality are great! In my opinion it would be very nice if the front height would be a little lower. Lets say the same as on the Skinz Sunseeker Rio.

Does anyone know if Skinz have sorted out their 'fit' problem. I've only made one purchase, and I had to get them altered to make them fit properly. To much material under the crotch, and baggy rear. I noticed the latest catalogue mentioned a better fit in these areas. They've also been offereing a make to your pattern service. Maybe they're trying to get a better idea of fit and patterns !!!!

I just can't say enough good things about the fit of the Skinz Bravura thong. It is just like wearing a second skin and the support is great. I wore one of my new Bravuras in wet look black to a friend's pool party this past Saturday. I was, of course, the only guy in a thong but the fit of the Bravura drew several compliments from my friends. One of my women friends even commented that she would like to order the exact same thong for her husband who was, at least, in a nice speedo style suit. I would love this thong in every color they offer!

I have a number of skinzwear suits...both bikinis and thongs and love them. Although I haven't ordered any Bravura thongs due to the cut not being what I particularly like on myself, I can say that the skinz suits I have are top quality and made with really sensual stretchy material. I love how tiny the side straps are

I'm also the owner of numerous Skinz suits and thongs and just looking at the cut of the Bravura thong it's clear that it's not intended for the "larger" packaged man.  That is unless you like gapping along the sides of the crotch, which I definately do not.  The thong will likely work for the majority of guys out there and probably make the smaller endowment man look bigger due to the size and width of the pouch.

Ironically, I am very well endowed and, despite the narrow cut of the pouch, I don't spill out of the Bravura like I do with Dore, Joe Snyder and others. It is truly an amazing designed.

I am not particularlly well endowed and even I cant fit into a Joe Snyder.  I have tried Dore, and for whatever reason, they just dont do it for me.  I have no issues with the Bravura however.  I suspect that if I would have discovered them before Muscleskins, I would have nothing but Bravura thongs

I just bought and received a Skinz Men's Stuffit Thong in Phosphorescent Tu (UNLINED) last week. The front pouch is small but fits me fine. The back of the suit is really not a thong, but a g-string. I bought this one because I like the color. Hope this helps.

I had mentioned in another thread that I purchased a stuffit thong and found the pouch to be too small and slightly uncomfortable. I definitely am not overly endowed (darn it), but found that the goodies tended to spill out of the sides and it was difficult to remain fully covered. I really like the style of the stuffit but I was never able to wear the one I bought.

In respect to sizing, although I usually wear a medium from other manufacturers I generally go up a size when ordering from Skinz as I have found, at least for me, that Skinz suits seem to run slightly on the smaller side.

I just received my roman thong from skinz. I love the true Y string back but I dont like the cut/fit of the pouch. I would love to join the front of the muscleskins micro cut narrow pouch with the roman back. Has anyone ever taken two suits to a clothing alterations place to cut and join two suits, is this even possible?

I have never tried it, but I know what you mean g-string.  I used to love the back of the Joe Snyder rio thong but....as per my post above, the pouch just did not cut it for me.  Now I wear exclusively muscleskins because the pouches are absolutely the best.  If I could combine the JS Rio thong back with the muscleskins MP front, it would be my ultimate thong

 Not difficult if the gstring is adjustable width. Just tie the strings together under the sliding hem and sew to the tailstring. I'm now wearing a really micro pouch grafted to a Dore Y back which was originally a missle suit which I didn't like.

From September to December every year Skinz allows you to order custom suits to your spec. (mix sizes, fabrics, styles, make a style from another manufacture, one of your own designs etc...). I ordered 4 suits and just recieved them last week. Great quality and fit. Once you order those suits then the pattern is in your name and you can order that pattern from then on any time you want with no extra pattern fee.. The customer service and product at Skinz is the best in my opinon and I wont buy anything else.

I just had to add my two cents worth about Skinz.  I had a great experience last August when I got to go to their store in Clearwater.  Can you imagine what a thrill it was to walk into a store FILLED with sexy swimwear for men.  A person like me was in "thong heaven".  I got to try on lots and lots of suits.  What fun!  They were so nice there.  The front counter lady even asked if I would like to see the manufacturing area.  She took me back and showed me the fabrics, the sewing rooms, all of it.  I was treated so very nicely.  I asked about where all they shipped (all over the world) and what the ratio was with their sales of men to women.  Would you belive that 80% of their customers are men.  I was surprised....and then, maybe not.  They do make a nice suit and the fabrics are the best.  Love those people at Skinz!

 Likely that is on purpose. The market for small size sexy womens swimsuits is likely small, but Skinz have a good presence in the US. The market for larger size womens swimsuits with more coverage is likely much more dificult to sell into and less profitable. My wife has gone into skinz with me many times but seldom buys anything. She says the womens suits are all too small size, modifications expensive.

The tie-side thong.  Something about it just feels so good.   But I'll have a new favorite sooner or later.
Skinz has a lot of good sale items, especially if you go to the actual store in person.  I'll also say that the staff there is great.  They give you just the amount of help you want and let you try on as many suits as you like.

 I hear ya, I'm the same way. Like a pouch that isn't cut straight up to the wiastband, but on an angle. I oder the Muscleskins thongs with a wider pouch and that seems like  a perfect fit. I only own skinzwear bikinis, so can't comment on their thong cuts but I think I'm going to order some of these:

Well, it seems that is is more of a vertical type pouch, which is not a look I like one me. I'm thinking maybe a little lower cut in the front, I guess.
