Love this swim suit! I'll have to admit that being a conservative kind of guy I was intimidated walking out of the locker room in this suit the first time, but after swimming in it I'm ready to buy more in different colors. It is amazingly comfortable and gives my legs total freedom. If there weren't such a stupid stigma in our society about wearing them for everyday swimming/at the beach, I'd throw out all my long swimming trunks. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to do that;)

I wear briefs for swim training, not hanging out at the pool or beach. These fit great, have good seat coverage, and great range of leg motion. However, I have stopped wearing them to train except for very short swim sessions (20 mins or less). The fabric is single lined except for the crotch. This design coupled with the front and back seam makes the suit stretch out too much and too quickly during training. I have reverted to the Core for almost all my workouts. The Core stays more comfortable in the water, and after a few hundred the suit stretches enough to give the leg fine range of motion.

I would not recommend for training.

Comments about SPEEDO Solar 1"" Brief:

The Solar brief bikini has evolved from what it was a 1" bikini to somewhat 1.5". The first one that I ever bought was model #730150 (discontinued from some time now). It was truly a 1" brief bikini. Now, the new Solar, even though they share the same name, the style changed to #7300120 and also is not 1" anymore. Lycra makes it to run smaller than any other regular garment. I have a 30" waist and had to pick my brief bikini a size 32 to fit appropriately. Whit this details in mind, I still recommend it and enjoy one of Speedo's classics in a long run.

      I wear this mainly for casual swimming but I think it would also be great for the beach. It's very comfortable and flattering. my fiancé says it looks real sexy.(Can't say I disagree) very durable. I wore my first one constantly for 2 years before it wore out and I ordered another one. I like the additional colors. I have one in navy blue.

        I bought more colors in this solar 1'' brief style since my last purchase in size 34. it took me a few times to get the right fit before since this style runs smaller than your actual waist size. I do wish they had colors green, orange, yellow or even purple available from this style. the fitness solar 1'' brief in hot orange runs bigger in size then this style

          This suit is designed with your masculinity in mind! Finally, a lap suit that fits well and doesn't crush your anatomy! This suit is perfect for swimming laps or getting maximum sun exposure. I wear a 32 waist in jeans, and the Speedo 32 fits perfectly. It will look great if you are in shape but not so great if you are overweight. I am a conservative guy, but I refuse to wear board shorts to swim laps. (Board shorts are for surfing!) What other people think really doesn't matter. If you want to buy a great suit, this is it!

            Comments about SPEEDO Solar 1"" Brief:

            I live in Texas and own a pool (as does everyone else in my neighborhood) to beat the summertime heat, or go to the lake for the weekend and go water skiing. Where ever the place, I always have my speedos along. I have been cautioned by my friends not to wear such a suit in public, but am very comfortable in it. I was a Country Club Swim Team member and swam in High School, too, so wearing them is almost second nature. But I take my friends advice and use them underneath swim suits (or Boardshorts), to hold my medical patch in place (probably not a top ten use, but a real helpful remedy for me) and tanning in the privacy of my fenced in back yard, or when I go in the water to cool off.

            But I don't think this cut of suit was not around when I was growing up in the 70's. None the less, the suits were brief and you always had to adjust your suit when coming out of the water, particularly in front and in the back they creeped up. Not these slick new ones...they hold their shape and give you more confidence to wear out in the public, even the Solar 1"er. But I have never seen this suit out in public and it is the most popular suit Speedo makes...?

            Never thought I'd be wearing a speedo ever in my life, but after trying these on I am totally convinced whether for training or tanning at the beach these are it. Super comfortable, don't diss it till you try it.

                      Just received a new order today in the mail. Use these for sunning at home and beach. Swam in high school and college and still do to this day on Masters swimming.

                      Two teenage sons also swimmers got new ones for them also. They love them for the size for same reasons and for less tan lines.

                          i purchased the solar 1'' brief scuba blue in size 34. my waist is 32 but i suggest wearing a 34 because these suits run a size smaller than your actual waist size and have a snug tight fit. they are attractive and sexy to wear. you must be in good shape because your love hands will show. well made fabric seems it will last a long time. i will wear these for sunbathing, swimming and excercise. i will be buying more colors in near future. i wish they carried the colors orange and green.

                              Wear my in the pool at home as well out at the lake and beach! My wife loves the fit on me as well. My 8 year old son and I love the fit feels very well in front as well back I wear normal size 34 but its even better when i buy to 38 still snug fit but not so tight as would be in my size I wear for confort style as well slim sides, my only problem here is they are comming out here with few more colors and I will get them all here,but they still have no YELLOW I have a gold one but want my yellow ! YES I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS AS WELL! Please let my know as soon as you have other colors as well I want the full collection here for us both.
                              I also think here if the Solar suit was made in a soft 100% polyester I think that many others will love the suit as well fit and have no trobles here with it fadding as well loosing its shape,Again Speedo lets keep this style as well colors around for many years to come want my son to grow up with the solar suits.

                                The product is advertised as 1" but the waist line if thicker than that. My only real complaint. Makes me look good and I feel good wearing it. I'm enjoying this product.

                                  This is a winner in form, comfort, durability and fit! My husband orders many at one time (in different colors - black, navy and red - and for different work outs and duffle bags). He particularly loves the drawstring (inside) feature to cinch closer or loosen to his lower waist, when/if desired. He wears the Solar 1" brief beneath his scuba gear and wetsuit when he dives, during pool swims and in fresh and salt water environments. He gets a lot of wear out of this swimming brief and only replaces his suits when they get frayed or damaged from excessive friction from concrete (which you should avoid anyway). It is otherwise, quite rugged. My husband wears his Solar 1" briefs till they are almost thread bare! (He gets many years worth of wear and likes the 1" for its higher leg, which is more flattering to his 5'10" frame!) He buys no other brief than this one.

                                      What's not to like? Well OK, the lack of international shipping here. And the disappearance of warm reds and soft blues from Speedo's palette :(

                                      But having sampled others I keep returning to speedos - just can't beat the quality and fit. Unlike some others, size consistency from pair to pair is excellent. Durable fabrics, snug where it counts - cheeks, legs, pouch - room where you need it - front and centre. Who want's to be distracted by ill-fitting swimwear that detracts from the feeling of wearing nothing at all? Isn't that the whole point; to be unaware of your swimwear with the confidence that nothing will go astray? Highly recommended

                                        I am 60 years old and have been wearing speedos since my high school swimming team days. The quality never varies. I still have some suits that are at least 20 years old and with care, look like I just bought them. My only complaint is that the draw strings are too long and I always end up cutting them or they hang out.

                                          Love the fit, quick drying and narrow 1 inch sides. I never see this style in sporting or swimming stores...have to order it on line. It is the best, so comfortable and sexy too!

                                              It was time to replace my old, trusty Speedo, so I purchased a turquoise and a white Solar 1" brief. The fabric in the Solar is heavier than my old suit and has an inside lining. The Solar does a better job than the old suit of masking what's underneath. The new suit has somewhat less coverage, especially on the legs, but I really like this because now nothing gets in the way of my legs while I'm swimming my laps. The elasticity of the waistband of the Solar is such that I doubt you need the drawstring for normal swimming (it might be needed for diving; I haven't tried that). I have a 36" waist and I purchased the same size suit. The suit is snug, which is fine. I've tried purchasing a size 38 in the past, and it was too loose. My only concern is that the care instructions for Lycra recommend that you rinse in tap water and quickly dry the suit after use. I rinse mine thoroughly and hang it over a towel in my locker, which has modest air holes. It takes about a day to dry out. I usually get 2-3 years of use this way. I like the way I look and feel in this swimsuit!

                                                -bought 2 black pairs,good fit when new. Each faded in the back and became baggy and were un-usable after 18 1/2 to 3/4 hour lap swimming sessions in various pools.Since they become baggy, best to get two sizes below normal pant size. High leg cut doesn't restrict leg movement. Heard about Speedo Endurace + and am now at 50+ laps sessions and no fading, but the material is stiffer.

                                                  lIKE, i SAID ABOVE THE PRODUCT IS SUPERB, BUT THE ONLY THING THAT BOTHERS ME ABOUT THE SPEEDO 1" IS THE FACT THAT TO THE OBSERVING PUBLIC, THE SWIMMERS MALE PRIVATE ANATOMY, ARE SO OBVIOUSLY PORTRAYED

                                                  • Fit:
                                                  • Feels true to size
                                                  • Was this a gift?:
