I think of the two options (trunks vs. board shorts) that the trunks look better. But I don't even like the standard trunks I see today, which--in my area--tend to baggier and bigger than pictured in the first photos of this thread.

I think my first swim suit (1970s) was smaller and tighter fitting (although not tight) than the standard today. I have to assume it was more or less standard style--my mother probably bought it someplace like KMart. I didn't have a swim suit until I was in my 20s (1990s), and I remember noting that it looked like they'd changed a lot. Locally, one saw board shorts at the pool--and I have a sense that board shorts became increasingly common.

I remember my father got a swim suit in the 80s. It was his first swim suit since probably at least the 1970s if not the 1960s. I'm sure he got a standard swim suit, and he commented at how revealing swim suits had become. Thinness of material was his comment, IIRC. I think he was a bit appalled--odd, because in many ways I don't think he'd have been bothered (I doubt, for example, he'd have been the guy changing into a swim suit in a toilet stall).

As for Speedos...I sometimes like the look, sometimes don't. I love the look of a sleek swimmer, wearing a Speedo with good cut and fit. On the other hand, it's not so nice seeing a huge, fat slob wearing a poorly fitting Speedo. But if he's happy with the Speedo, I'm happy he's happy.

So far, most of us have the same preference for tight beach boxers. Very frankly speaking, I find colorful board shorts or loose boxers the cutest option, but, on the other hand, I do not want men to look unmanly, childish, shy etc.
