Should I wear a swim brief or jammer?
Swimmers who want a more modest suit should opt for jammers or consider layering a drag suit over a regular brief. Swimmers looking for a suit that can be worn for practice and competition should buy tight-fitting briefs or jammers.
Are jammers comfortable?
Jammers are comfortable and a more modest option compared to regular “Speedos”—aka swim briefs. The look of the suit is similar to bicycle shorts, the fit is designed to be snug on your thighs and groin, and they provide the most coverage when it comes to training and lap swimming suits for men.
Should I wear jammers to the beach?
If you’re swimming laps, you’ll move more efficiently through the water in Speedo-style “jammers,” or briefs, says Jonathan Skow, the designer for Mr Turk. But yes, they’re a bit daring for some beaches or public pools, so wear them only if you’re confident that you can pull them off.
Do you wear undies under board shorts?
The choice of what to wear, or not to wear, under your boardshorts is, in the end, entirely up to you. But as a general rule of thumb, if your boardshorts have a mesh liner, you can skip the underwear.
Are jammers revealing?
They are form-fitting, create little drag and there is little rubbing and chafing. However, they are very revealing, which to some is a problem. Also, since they are usually nylon they can react poorly to chlorine over time, making the suit almost see-through.
Are jammers better than swim trunks?
Jammers offer more coverage than trunks and provide a competitive option for performance athletes thanks to their close-fitting design and low-friction material; this is why you’ll see most athletes in either briefs or jammers as opposed to trunks.
How long do swim jammers last?
The Speedo Endurance+ jammers last forever, but they don’t fit quite as nicely as they are not stretchy. The nicer-fitting, stretchy jammers last maybe six months.
