I was looking for a pair of swimming briefs like the Speedo I had 20+ years ago when we lived in Hawaii. This fits that bill. I wanted something that would give me exposure (for tanning), yet modest and practical for my age and body type. It is very smooth and flattering (at least I think so). I had read the comments about the suits being tighter than expected, so ordered my size accordingly (next size up). It is still snug (probably more of a design feature to make sure they stay on when wet and in the surf), but very comfortable and smooth. The one complaint is that the drawstring is excessively long, and so I had to cut off several inches, then re-melt the ends with a lighter.

          I'm 5'11, 185, so I chose a 32, as I do for my pants all the time.
          The brief is more of a small than a large.
          The reason I kept it is because people say it losens up with time, but it is not a 32 as I know it.

            This is a very comfortable, good fitting suit, but I was really hoping to order it in the color "sapphire" as I had previously, but there were no longer any available in size 40. Please give more selections in this size! Fitness swimming is a lifetime activity, and there must be plenty of swimmers in this size who still feel most comfortable swimming laps in a swim brief as I do. Anyway, thanks for a great product.

              I swim laps 3-4 times per week about a mile each time. The Core Solid Brief is great for my swims. It has a snug fit with little drag. It has good coverage and the color is just stylish enough to look good but not too flashy.

                Comments about Speedo Core Solid Brief:

                I went with the Speedo size chart this time and glad I did because, though it's a tighter fit - the fit is a lot better. I like the regular black much better than the new black. I also like the Sapphire (best) and the Red/Navy (compared to True Red) also. The quality is good but over time I suspect to see some stretching, fading and wear like other similar products I have purchased in the past. I generally consider this to be expected rather than a loss of quality.

                  Great suit! Looks good on me and fits well. I ended up using the Speedo size chart this time and glad I did. While the size I normally bought works - the size chart had me go down a size that fits a lot tighter but at the same time fits better and looks better, including less sagging of material - dry and wet. I especially like the Sapphire but also the Black and Navy/Red (Real Red doesn't look quite as good - maybe just my preference).

                    This swim brief is a little bit snug but fits great. I had a 30" waist but I needed a 32. very comfortable in the pool or spending the day on the beach. I like how the material hugs my body just right (allowing me to move easier) and dries quick when I get out of the water.

                          Recently I wore this swimsuit on the beach and afterwards to the pool. It was the most comfortable swimsuit I've ever worn. it dried quickly and gave me good support. I love how the material hugged my body and it looked really good since I'm in good shape. I didn't think it would make a difference on how I moved but I did seem to be able to move through the water a lot faster and easier than when I wear trunks.

                            I bought this suit one size larger than my waist size (36 v. 34) and it's a bit snug, though still good for swimming workouts. Next time I'd get a 38 waist.

                            Comments about Speedo Core Solid Brief:

                            I was looking for a pair of swimming briefs like the Speedo I had 20+ years ago when we lived in Hawaii. This fits that bill. I wanted something that would give me exposure (for tanning), yet modest and practical for my age and body type. It is very smooth and flattering (at least I think so). I had read the comments about the suits being tighter than expected, so ordered my size accordingly (next size up). It is still snug (probably more of a design feature to make sure they stay on when wet and in the surf), but very comfortable and smooth. The one complaint is that the drawstring is excessively long, and so I had to cut off several inches, then re-melt the ends with a lighter.

                            Could offer larger sizes for us guys destined to gain.
                            38" waist is barely large enough to fit below my new paunch!

                              I'm glad that I made this choice. It seemed a little tight at first but after a few swims it was fine. I've worn ths suit for an entire season and am pleasantly suprised by its high quality. After a full season of pool and open water swimming it still fits very well.

                                  As an 80 year old senior committed to staying fit, I find the Speedo swimsuit to be much more practical than the current fad of male swimsuits that look more like knee-length shorts. I like the feeling of not having too much resistance when swimming.

                                    I have other suits in the same size, but this one feels much smaller than the others. You may consider going up a size when ordering this one. Outside of that, it's a great suit.

                                      I use this as my suit for my regular swim workout. It feels only slightly too small (yes, I am normally a 32), but not enough to be unsightly or unusable. Would purchase again, but might try on the next larger size.

                                        I swim 3-4 times a week and this suit wears well, is durable and comfortable. I've tried other brands and now only buy this suit. I love the royal blue (aqua) color, which is sometimes hard to find in stores, but always available online. Fast delivery from Speedo.

                                          I like it, it's tighter than my older suit the same size though. After 10+ years my old one may have stretched. It has a full liner across the front, I was hoping for a partial liner like my old suit has. It's still a comfortable suit though.

                                                • Q:

                                                  What us the difference between the True Red and the Red and Navy? I have the Red and Navy. The Navy in the Red and Navy is liner in the suit. Does the True Red have a liner?

                                                  I prefer the Style RN 54934. This style has a liner in the very front and not the entire suit.

                                                    Hunter: The only difference is the logo placement, left side vs. right side.
