There are all kinds of reasons why guys love form-fitting swimwear as opposed to big, baggy shorts. Some reasons are practical and some are aesthetic; all are valid. Form-fitting suits prevent drag when swimming, encourage a full range of motion, and dry more quickly. And, come on, they make you look super hot.

Here are a few in our collection that are blissfully short on length but big on admiration:

2eros Bondi Shorts: this is especially gorgeous in emerald, featuring a reinforced waistband with bar tabs, and a convenient back zip pocket. It’s quick drying, so you’re not sopping wet when making that all-important transition from sea to “be seen.”

Rufskin Maltese Swim Trunk: this square-cut garment is crafted from premium nylon-spandex. It features contrast front tabs, logo eyelets and an eye-catching rope tie, which harkens back to the days of classic board shorts. It’s fully lined, and spotlights metallic gold piping at the leg openings. Also awesome: a faux fly.

Code 22 Contrast Waistband: square cut and made of quick dry fabric, featuring intriguing front pockets. Its anatomical lining makes for a perfect fit.

Marcuse League Shorts: the lightweight fabric and partial mesh lining makes swimming a breeze. Color options include white, orange, charcoal, indigo, and even camel. It’s 100% polyester, so it will last a good, long while.
