Still your vote is in and boardies are definitely closing the gap! That being said, in their place, boardies can be as stylish and comfy as hell. Actually quite comfortable. Equally good in fresh water and the sea. Nothing better than a groovy pair of boardies in the surf, in my book, but, for goodness sakes, how silly do blokes look swimming laps at the Olympic pool in knee length baggies!
Sluggos versus boardshorts – The definitive swimwear “road-test”
Designed with the stylish Light-Dropback, which has thin adjustable straps that offer high levels of comfort and give you freedom of movement in the water.
Not as good a fit for my body shape as the Gallery but clearly this is a good all round thin-strap cossie. That one respondent later pulled out… no reason given. Made from recycled fishing nets, these generously cut swim shorts are available in blue or black with contrast stitching and draw-cord. Eight foot!
