Trunk Show

Cruising summer in our top 12 swimsuits for dudes. By Christene Barberich & Piera Gelardi
Let's face it: In the battle of the sexes, guys have a distinct advantage when it comes to swimsuit shopping. Unsightly bulges are easily disguised beneath adjustable waistbands, and a cool pair of board shorts are way more likely to inspire a boost of confidence than say, a skimpy 2-piece that's probably creeping up the bum. Despite the venerable sea of possibilities, though, we've seen way too many bad flower shows and mad plaids to let you go it alone. To steer you right, we've fished out our top trunks for navigating oceans and pools, not to mention, lazy lounging, with major waves of style. Read on for the short and long of it—with nary a speedo in sight.
