Do exactly that. If yours offends others, then you can just as easily be offended by theirs.

Re:Thong at the gym pool

Date Posted:06/10/2017 02:59:54

 Today at my gym seen a young tall couple, they both looked slim like swimmers or volleyball players. The female was wearing loose black short shorts she seen me on the gym floor as they both were passing by. The female had smirk on her face trying to keep from laughing knew my outfit wasn't what she seen a guy wear before and probably silly for her senses. 
Later i was showering on the pool deck wearing my desmit swim briefs. While walking along the pool deck i noticed the same couple in the sauna. As i made my way to the whirlpool the couple walked out of the sauna. To my delightful surprise she was wearing a black cheeky thong bikini. The boyfriend had on dork shorts and tank top. She came out to cool off but went immediately back in the sauna by herself while the boyfriend stood guard outside on the pool deck bench. 

Fellow member showed up as i was sitting alone in the whirlpool nodding to him with my head to look over to the couple. The girl was showering on the pool deck cooling off from the sauna. My fellow gym member smiles said, she is quite cheeky seen her before.  As the couple departed the pool i started to think what double standard.
About year or more ago i was wearing a thong swimsuit to the gym pool during summer months maybe dozen times. Than i got a talking too from the female gym manager asking me to wear more using the pool. While i never questioned her motioning with her hands along hips of the word MORE means, i decided thonging isn't something i can do swimming in the indoor gym pool. Being it has a panoramic bay windows for anyone to observe while members heading to the change rooms and aerobic studio  exiting and entering. 

So my beef is she gets away wearing her thong cheeky bikini black bottom while i'm asked to cover-up. Although she came at a quite hour not much traffic and far as i know never used the pool, only hidden in the sauna while wrapping herself in a towel leaving.Suppose if she was regular and came while there was aqua class session as i did or same during peak busy hours not hiding the fact i'm wearing a thong to anyone observing outside the pool windows or pool deck. It maybe different story and someone might ask her to not wear a thong as i heard second hand one female trying to do but asked to change before using the dry sauna even though she was wearing a towel as coverup.
Never spoke to the couple or female in the thong only because of them leaving while i was in the whirlpool. Would of found it a perfect time to ask why she is wearing a thong and i get reprimanded for wearing exact coverage backside. What surprised me most is she didn't have a great buttocks wearing the thong in fact we probably look identical. 

So i'm working on getting a better tan backside. then i will try to attire a thong again seeing the female manager left the gym.  Will see what happens, but this time i will try to avoid the busy hours when more people can see me. Yet that sort of spoils some fun wearing a thong in the first place....

I had the same experience at my conservative gym. They removed the no thongs allowed sign about 10 years ago.

I have worn thongs at the gym pool for about 10 years.

I tried out a thong maybe 7 to 10 years ago in Alabama and had no problems with staff. I wear thongs for laps now about half of the time and briefs the rest.

 Heading to the gym now, and taking my red, white & blue flag print thong.  I've never pushed it here, but have worn other thongs a few times in the hot tub when few are around.  We'll see what mid-day Friday is like!

 The last time I posted on this topic was six years ago and I am still going to the same gym swimming laps 3 to 4 times a week wearing a Skinz G-string. I have never heard a negative comment. This morning a women in the next lane was trying to swim at my same pace and I noticed she had a suit malfunction. One of her boobs was exposed. I stopped for a water break and she also stopped. I pointed to her top and she looked down and made an adjustment. She just smiled and went on swimming.

 A few years ago I was going to a gym that had an indoor pool, and one day there was a guy who went to the gym management to complain about me wearing a thong in the pool while wear camo denim shorts. But when the gym manager came to the pool he made the other guy leave the pool because he didn't have propper swimwear on

Any Canadians here? I don't know what it's like in the States, but in Canada, there are public pools that are free. Everyone can pretty much go in and swim. Since it's free, a lot of kids use the pool. My question is, is it appropriate to swim in a thong when there are kids around? Some pools have 'adult only' time slots, so maybe it's okay for me to thong then.

Depending how you look in the thong. Sometimes you maybe asked to change only because lifeguards find you appear lude or not attractive enough.  Whenever there are kids around you always have one mom being a prude. If she complains about your thong only recourse from the pool staff is to ask if you wear more coverage.  If you decide to ignore their suggestion then the police show up to remove you from the pool. Even though there maybe another female in cheeky bikini bottom.  If you show up alone to the pool then the staff may decide to pick on you being easy target rather being in a group.  

This is international rules that apply worldwide because in majority cases thongs are shunned upon. Only females with skinny bodies can get away with thonging almost anywhere.  
When i went to outdoor public pool in the evening wearing bikini brief had too many shocked stares from female lifeguards. Only could imagine wearing my Dore bulge thong to the pool. At my gym pool i wore the thong and not too long after 8 or so visits the female manager told me to wear more coverage.  Although do know most outdoor public pools allow thong swimwear but many families with kids can misinterpret my thonging as stripper wear. Seeing a fit bronzed lean male in a thong often has stigma and assumption he is a dancer- stripper... Having larger then average bulge only exasperates the stereotype. Then mom's begin to complain asking for family oriented atmosphere not adult entertainment which many females do enjoy without a complaint.
So if your like minded as myself and have too or need to be noticed your asking for trouble at public family pool atmosphere. In my case if i'm not welcomed to location such as public pool what i enjoy to wear then i stay clear. What's the point wearing a thong if none is noticing me or complaining. You may say getting better tan lines but always being prepared to wear a thong and have already bronzed tan appearance.

My gym puts out a monthly newsletter. The most recent had a summer style guide written by the staff. I was pleasantly surprised by the swimwear recommendations. Of course, they had a board short for guys and conservative one piece for women, but that wasn't all.

One of the male trainers wrote a recommendation for a Nike swim brief. The female aquatics director wrote one for a Body Glove thong. The captions were cute.

"Don't let board shorts drag you down. This brief by Nike feels great in and out of the water. "

"Suns out buns out. This thong by Body Glove is the perfect suit for tanning stays put when you decide to go for a swim."

 Boy don't I wish!  That is clear endorsement of thongs by the gym.  I still wear mine generally when there is little to no one else in the pool area, just to be safe.

 I recently started wearing thongs to the pool and hot tub. I’ve been wearing them almost daily and have not heard any complaints. And that’s during all times of the day.   I usually wear my Jor Ipanema or Desmit thong.  Sometimes my Jor sport thong. They are all lined. I know some folks on here like to go as minimal as possible, but I think that’s where they might shoot themselves in the foot.  If folks wear something that clearly shows off genitals, I could see how some people may be uncomfortable ( I wouldn’t be, but I’m way liberal).  Sometimes I’ll wrap a towel around me and other times I’ll walk in just the thong. I think it also helps to be in shape and toned.

 Just to get a feel, where are you folks at as you're describing these situations?  I'm in Iowa.  I really like this gym, and have always worn short shorts & a thong (or not) in the gym part, and either the shorts or a thong in the pool, hot tub & sauna sections.  I'd love to wear just a thong more often in the hot tub, but if anyone is around, I'll usually opt for the shorts instead.  I'll work on that slowly this year.  I don't want to push to the point that someone complains, but hopefully, no one will!

 Modelnude, I go to LA fitness and always wear either a very brief single layer suit or a cheeky during normal busy hours. On Saturdays in the afternoon, there are usually only one or two people in th pool. If that is the case, I will walk right from the locker room to the pool only wearing a thong and swim laps then enjoy the hot tub. I just received a few thongs from AliExpress that are 90% nylon and very comfortable. They really offer only about two inches of triangle in the rear. Saturday I decided what the heck and wore it to the pool for about 10 laps then the hot tub. No problem or even funny looks but only a few people in the pool area. I think although I have not seen any other male or female wear a thong to the pool, no one seems to care or comment. I think a lot of the anxiety that is in our minds come from us. I would not do the same if there were kiddy’s around or if the pool was packed with people because it is probably a number game that someone could complain. LA fitness does not have a dress code spelled out.

 Saturday afternoon is our slowest time as well, so a favorite time of mine to go!  I went today, and wore shorts to the hottub, but stripped to a thong to actually get in.  A couple folks walked by, but pretty slow today too.

I’m in a chicago suburb. The gym is open 24/7, but I usually go either late afternoon or late evening, and mornings usually on weekends.  I really don’t think it’s that big of a deal. Probably more in your head than anything else. Unless you’re wearing something transparent or a micro g-string. All the thongs I swim in look pretty much like briefs from the front. So unless your pool has an explicit policy, I say go for it. To your surprise, you might see others become more willing to wear thongs. Like yesterday, I was doing laps and a couple of young girls may be in early 20s came to the pool. They weren’t wearing thongs but very cheeky bikinis. I’m certain I  had nothing to do with their choice of swimwear. But seeing me openly swim and go to hot tub in a thong probably gave them extra confidence in their choice of swimwear.

At the gym today, going to the locker room from a workout, and getting ready to get in the hot tub.  I always check out the hot tub/pool/sauna area before changing, it helps me decide what to wear.  On the way by, I noticed 2 or 3 guys in the pool, and a couple folks in the sauna, 1 male, 1 female.  22 also in the hot tub: an older male, regular & a drop dead gorgeous ~20 year old female.  I could only see a bit, but she had on a tiny black bikini top.  Since the guy was in there, I didn't go for a thong, but of course, I probably should have.  I went with Soffee teeny tinys instead. 
When I came out, there was another guy there too, and within a couple minutes, another young guy, who sat next to the girl, apparently a boyfriend.  We all chatted and soaked for a while, then the couple decided to get out & go to the sauna.  She had on the tiniest little cheeky bottom, I'd be right on the edge of calling it a thong, but it was a bit bigger than my suits.  They left their towels by the hot tub, so I knew they'd be back. 
I got out and got some more water, and then back to the hot tub.  Gradually the other guys left, and I was alone.  A bit later, she came back out, alone, and got her towel.  I said "I just wanted to tell you that is the second smallest swim suit I've seen around here, and you wear it very well!"  She said, "Oh, thank you!, that's good to know"  "But, only second smallest?"  I said "Yes, buy not by much", and stood up, pulled down the back of my shorts a ways, so she could see the thong tan lines.  "These are from the smallest one, but I don't often wear them here."  She said, "You should, I doubt anyone would care."  With that, she gathered here stuff, said "Thanks again, have a great day!" and headed to the locker room.
Such a great interaction, and I hope to see more of her in the pool area!

 Modelnude4u, you should’ve totally worn a thong. I don’t really think people care. May be they’ll take a second look, but that’s it. I don’t know for sure, but I think that since I started wearing thong swimsuits to swim laps and go into hot tub, it feels like others have been wearing smaller swimsuits as well. Both male and female.

 After seeing hers today, it really made me think again about wearing a thong more often.  I always want to anyway, so I just need to take the plunge again.  I've worn one several times, but usually only when I'm convinced that there will be little to no traffic.
Comfythong1 #70

Re:Thong at the gym pool

Date Posted:01/21/2018 04:05:43

I wear one even during peak hours. The only way to follow through is to wear one and not change your mind last minute.  You’ll get used to wearing it to the point where it feels more natural than any other swimsuit. I think the key is not to have crazy exposure in the front.

Re:Thong at the gym pool

 Wore a thong to the hot tub/pool area today, without covering it up on the way, or the way back.  There was a 40 something attractive lady sitting in one of the chairs by the hot tub when I came out of the locker room.  The button to start the jets was about 5 ft from her, and I pushed it in only a thong, got in and soaked, and she never said a word, or left.  When the timer was done, she asked if I wanted her to restart it for me, but I said it was probably a sign I should go.  I climbed out slowly and walked back to the locker room, and again, she didn't say a word, but certainly at least noticed.  Maybe we make too big a deal out of such things!

 Called the gym and asked if I could swim in a thong swimsuit. The guy on the phone said there are no rules against thongs, but a speedo would be the 'bare minimum'. I dont know if that was pun intended.

Re:Thong at the gym pool

Date Posted:05/30/2018 03:00:16

that's why its better not to ask;   just wear a thong with a towel wrapped on top when you walk around;  people will see you are wearing a thong when swimming, but that you have the 'etiquette' to wrap yourself up with a towel when outside of the pool.
I reckon that after a few times of following this you will gain credibility as not being a creep or exhibitionist, and you could casually drop  the towel a few metres away from the pool  and walk around in a casual way wearing only the thong.

I've done it many times and it always worked.
Comfythong1 #74

Re:Thong at the gym pool

Date Posted:06/07/2018 04:54:12

 That’s a good rule to follow. If I’m in an indoor pool, I’ll wrap myself with a towel. Outside pool or on the beach it shouldn’t really matter as everyone is in swimyaround you anyway.

Re:Thong at the gym pool

Date Posted:06/07/2018 05:01:36

 Besides, if your swimming laps, it’s probably not super noticeable unless people take the time to look closely. Btw, I’ve never asked if thongs are ok. Just put one on and went about my business. And no one has mentioned my swimsuit at all. Neither other members nor employees. I’d like to think I even motivated others to don smaller swimsuits.

Honestly Forgot my swim briefs, always keep a backup thong in my gym bag. Had no choice but to wear my modest camo lined T-back thong 3/4" sides. First went into the sauna but kept a small towel to sit down. After leaving i decided to use the whirlpool carrying my big, small towels and toiletry pouch. Once on the pool deck i walked a short way hanging my towels leaving my stuff flip flops etc, as i turned around entering the the whirlpool steps. 

Seen the usual four asian males and one older female often come to the pool. They ignored me pretty much but knew i was wearing something different then my usual swim briefs. One young latina in cheeky bikini was sitting by the railing noticing me walking down the the whirlpool steps. Feeling very comfortable  with myself i didn't care what others thought. Once i positioned myself turning around facing everyone i looked up towards open bay window overlooking the pool/whirlpool. Seen a female staring down towards me, then her boyfriend met up with her, she was grinning saying something to him then he looked back towards me. She patted him on the back, giggling probably noticing me wearing a thong in the whirlpool was to much for him to observe.  While one young bikini clad latina woman was making her way out of the whirlpool little later on, sipping some water from a bottle standing on the pool deck, with her cheeky backside towards everyone to watch. She paced back and fourth then undecided to leave but walked back towards the woman's change room. Don't know if she was trying to be seen by everyone or judging any reactions onto her swim bikini.

After few minutes she exited the change room began to walk along the pool deck and back into the whirlpool facing me this time. As the timer ran out in a few minutes being only us two in the whirlpool, i made my way towards the steps. Asked her if she wanted me to turn on the the jets for her in the whirlpool. She got up saying, she was leaving also... As she stood pausing waiting for me to walk up the steps first, out of the whirlpool following me very closely. She definitely got close up view of my thonging butt cheeks, felt her face was as close to my backside as i ever seen before. So I grabbed my hanging towel on the pool deck and flip flops walking towards the men's change room. Only seen the Latina watch me closely from the back and i turned my head rather looking into the pool beside the whirlpool. While leaving watched a older female in swim cap doing serious lap after lap when i was in the whirlpool no stop.  She decided to stop, pausing at the edge of the pool deck observing me intrigued for whatever reason as i walked into the change room. 

Don't know if wearing a thong at the gym whirlpool was surprising or intriguing to any of the  woman seeing me but nobody complained, nor said a word. Yet my instincts tell me the LATINA walking back from the change room second time going into the whirlpool was unusual for anyone to do in my experience. Thought the Latina noticed my thong when i walked down the whirlpool steps from a profile view. Then she decided to see more waiting for me to walk out following from behind, felt it was bit obvious what she did. Then lingering on the pool deck as i got my towel and flip flops to leave.   Nothing was said nor reactions i picked up on. Only thought told me they might of sort of liked it a tiny bit. So i will leave it to that.
Very satisfying that tables are turned seeing a latina wearing a cheeky bikini while i had on a thong. Often we thonging males cry about being afraid to wear a thong wearing more at certain venue, then seeing a latina females wearing g-strings or thongs without them blinking an eye. Suppose the latina who was in the whirlpool with me probably wanted to be wearing a thong herself seeing how boldly i did. Maybe next time showing her i wasn't afraid why shouldn't she do the same. Watch and wait...

 To update what's been going on at my pool in Scotts Valley, CA.   Last year after inquiring why women could wear thongs but I couldn't wear a string bikini and was told the rules are "to wear what is gender appropriate" and that they were going to talk to the women about wearing thongs.  

First off the "older woman swim coach hasn't been there in the afternoon since January.  Not sure if she's found some other place to coach or what.  I do know that a lot of swimmers, male and female, didn't get along with her.  She was the one who was totally against my bikinis.
Now with the cheeky swimwear being popular with women there is a lot more butt cheek being shown around the pool.  One of the lifeguards  has a red one piece that gets tucked up pretty far between her cheeks she might as well have a thong on. 

A couple of months ago I started wearing the Koala Pumped Up suit which is pretty much a Rio with a narrow front.   I swim in it a couple of days a week and haven't gotten any comments on it being inappropriate.

 Went to my usual gym pool which has whirlpool, sauna, steam room. Used them all wearing my moderate camo thong. Seen few people but most didn't say a word just stared aware of me. Once i got to the pool deck seen the gym receptionist working the mixing kit for the water quality. She looked me over as i put my towel on the hook and walked into the whirlpool. Later noticed few woman pausing looking into from the exterior pool windows observing me in the whirlpool. While i lifting my thigh out of the bubbling water showing i had on very little to nothing on. The bubbles and foam in the water disguised what i was wearing. They looked intrigued only my belly button was exposed from top up maybe they liked looking at my upper body or just curious if i was wearing any clothes seeing my quad lift out of the water exposing a lot of skin. Yet the fold of my leg and water obscured the side strap of my thong  which was 1/2 inch and water bubbles.

 Didn't hear anything, rules state everyone must  have proper swimwear, no underwear or nudity. As i stood in the shallow end of the pool seen few gym members passing by overlooking from the exterior window of the aqua facilities. Noticed a very attractive bodied Dreadlock blonde stripper that visits the gym. She came from the change room making her way onto the gym floor. So before she passed the window overlooking the pool directly where i was i decided to do something. I stood noticing her so i pushed off with my feet from the side of the pool and swam underwater half the length of the pool. The initial torque pulled down my thong from the water pressure, although wanted the stripper to see my thong T-back as she looked over the pool. Only me and another woman in the next lane of the pool were there.  Couldn't figure out what the reaction was but i felt i failed to keep my thong from slipping was funny to watch.

Re:Thong at the gym pool

I joined a gym strictly for the olympic size pool earlier this year. I’m a brief guy while doing laps at a pool anytime I go but have hesitated to wear thongs at a gym pool just because of the awkwardness of people looking etc. Well this gym I joined has a pool separate from the rest of the gym so no other gym members could see the swimmers at all which is why I like this pool.

When I joined I always wore my speedos, bikini style suits and never have an issue or anyone staring which is great. I really believe that it’s like that because there is a swim team there almost everyday. They are all college students usually and the guys all wear speedos and the ladies wear one pieces but their one pieces are so narrow on the back. Most times they get out they pretty much look like one piece thongs. 

Even with all that said.. I didn’t feel like it was a good time to wear my thong in front of all those people. Most of the other folks swimming are in swim shorts or maybe a squarecut. I’m the only non swim team guy in a brief usually but never really get any looks or care. 

Recently I have been going on days when the swim team is off and the pool is usually very empty. If there is a time to try wearing a thong to the gym pool, this is the time. I walked out the first time and only 4 people were there and I got to my lane. I took my shorts off and I had my Gregg Homme thong on which is the most conservative thong I have. I got in and really didn’t see anybody staring or anything so I just started swimming laps. I felt so good swimming in a thong doing laps and not worrying about people. An Asian lady then came in and got the lane right next to me. At first I was somewhat nervous but I just had to tell myself just keep swimming and not worry. She definitely saw I was wearing a thong but didn’t care one bit. She was just focused on her laps. 

It was just us two left at the pool and it was time for me to get out and I was getting braver and braver. Instead of putting the towel around me, I walked in front of her as she rested on rail looking right at me basically and returned the float stuff back in the bin. When I walked back to grab my clothes and towel she just kinda nodded with a smile. 

That first experience made it my next few times easier. I then wore a desmitt thong the next time and the same lady as well as another Asian lady were at the pool with me. I felt real comfortable swimming laps in the thong and getting in and out walking around felt totally fine. They clearly know what I’m wearing and don’t care. I’m hoping I can wear my thong On a regular basis around the people I’m always swimming with. It seems like the same group but every now and then a group of random people will come in and I’ll put my briefs back on. Really depends on who is around.
