The path to the men’s swimming trunks of today
Looking through history, in the beginning men bathed totally naked and then afterwards completely covered. Around the 1900s, one-piece bathing costumes with short legs made the previously separate bathing establishments superfluous. In the 1920s, bolder men also wore swimwear that was very skimpy – so-called triangular swimming trunks – running the gauntlet of the disapproving gaze of sceptics. In the USA, swimming trunks with belts were very popular in the 1930s, until in the 1950s, very short and tight-fitting styles became popular. Loose and extra long swimming shorts, also known as trunks, originate from surfing culture and have become extremely popular outside this sport too.
How to choose the right swimming trunks
A lot of careful thought should go into choosing the right swimwear, because, especially with swimwear, it’s more a question of figure than of fashion trend. Skin-tight swimming trunks quite simply don’t suit everyone. But the garment of choice shouldn’t be too baggy either. After all, shapeless knee-length shorts could frighten all the girls away! Style-conscious men can play it safe with loose swimming shorts that end in the centre of the thigh. If you want something more modest, a somewhat wider fit or longer leg length is the way to go.
