Silly swimming question

Why do we wear skin tight swim suites that hide nothing, while men just wear a suite that closely resembles (and sometimes is) their everyday pair of shorts??

  • LOL because we women have no external way to show when we're *ahem* excited. Guys need those baggy suits to hide certain things. LOL

  • LOL because we care more about a tan? Not sure. I just love how it "looks bad" for an overweight woman to be in a bikini but a large man can flaunt his stuff shirtless!! LOL I wish I had that kind of confidence!

  • Its also because a bathing suit is meant to cover privates. A bikini does the job. Just as some men (usually foreign) will wear a small speedo to cover theirs lol

  • lol, because they are heavy and un comfortable and most swinwear offers tummy tuckers, lifts, etc.
