Whether you're looking for simple swim trunks for performance at the beach, surfing or laps, or something that looks extra sharp at a rooftop pool, now's a great time to upgrade your swimwear
what are we looking for
Fabric: For swimming trunks, you want a material that is lightweight when wet and dries quickly when out of the water. Synthetic materials like recycled polyester, spandex or nylon are great for swim trunks because they're better water repellent and dry faster, Moore said. "You can wear cotton in the water, but it will pull you down," Moore said. If you've ever gotten your jeans wet, you know that cotton can become overweight and restrict your movement, he said. Cotton takes longer to dry, even in the sun. You'll also want to look for stretch in the fabric, "allowing you to do all the movement you need for surfing or adventure," Moore says.
Sizes: We are always looking for garments in all sizes to fit all kinds of people. For swim trunks, one of the most important measurements is inseam length, which can range from a short 3" and 4" inseam showing the largest thigh to a mid-range 5" inseam (average), To longer seven inches or even nine inches inseam will be closer to or even below the knee. Many of the experts we spoke to mentioned that you want to make sure your suitcase isn't too tight or too loose. If they are too tight and fit, they will not allow proper movement in the water. If they're too loose, they could end up slipping off your waist, which no one wants to see.
