Undergarments are essential when wearing regular pants, but how about swimsuits? Board shorts are forms of casual wear/swimwear that are quick-drying and made from nylon or polyester material. Initially known as surf trunks, they have evolved in the past 50 years into contemporary designs. Although they are popular beachwear, consumer acceptance depends on the competing brands portraying themselves as authentic because of their historical background in surfing and technical authority. These brands may include Nike Swim, speedos and more. Keep reading for more insight into board shorts.
Should I wear Swim shorts with underwear?
Some board shorts, speedos are available with in-built liners that offer a snug fit; thus, you don’t have to clad your underwear.
