Gay Swimwear Brands to Inspire Your Next Purchase

Out in the summer sun, what would us gay men do without our fun and sexy gay swimwear? After all, the right fit and style can really be a confidence boost—and is a big part of how we express ourselves!

sexy gay swimwear

Whether you’ll be heading to the gay beach or jumping into a jacuzzi at a gay ski week, stylish gay swimwear is a must. And I can guarantee this list of brands will inspire you.

You’ve probably heard of a few of the brands below. But there are lots of new ones to discover too, with styles ranging from elegant and conservative to flashy and revealing.

I’ll start with the most popular gay swimwear brands, followed by some new and boutique brands.

2(X)IST

2(X)IST is among the original and most trusted gay swimwear brands. They’ve been around since the early 90s and consistently make swimsuits that guys love.

2(x)ist gay swimwear

Swim briefs by 2(X)IST are their most classic cut. They come in a range of colors and patterns, which tend to be fun and playful, but not overly flashy.

I love how 2(X)IST’s briefs, trunks, and swim shorts are all typically available in the same colors/patterns. If you like gay swimwear that doubles as a pair of shorts, don’t miss their modern-looking Ibiza Shorts

You can also find 2(X)IST swimsuits on Amazon. They’re usually different styles, some of which are past season’s patterns (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing!) and are almost always cheaper.

Aussiebum

Aussiebum is one of the world’s most iconic gay swimwear brands. Their sporty, playful, and sexy designs scream fun in the sun down under.

Popular collections include the revealing Classic Club Original, the 100% nylon Competition Crew, and the Swish line, made from fine Italian fabric.

While the brand has expanded immensely, every garment is designed in Sydney by founder Sean Ashby himself.

Speedo

Speedo continues to be a favorite among gay men, as well as a household name! I can’t even count the number of Speedos I own.

If you picture plain and boring solid colors when you think of Speedo, then you haven’t seen how the brand has expanded its designs! Speedo briefs now come in plenty of interesting patterns and colors, which they’ve continued refining for gay guys to love.

While their briefs will always be classic, Speedo’s Aquashorts line is a sleek and sporty alternative for a bit more coverage.

There are also a bunch of Speedo swimsuits on Amazon available in a wide selection of prints.

Taddlee

Taddlee is one of my favorite inexpensive gay swimwear brands. I’ll never forget how perfectly the first Taddlee swim briefs I bought from them fit me. They have the high coverage around the hips that guys with big thighs or butts look great in.

Aside from swim briefs, Taddlee sells a bunch of unique trunk-style swimsuits. They provide a lot of coverage but are still form-fitting and flexible. I like wearing these in places where you need to wear shorts but want to wear a swimsuit.

In between these fits are Taddlee’s sexy men’s boxer swim trunks, which have a pronounced front pouch to show off the goods!

Garçon Official

Swimsuits made by Garçon are all about sex appeal. The brand’s flashy, bright-colored, and in-your-face prints always turn the party.

popular gay swimwear brand

Garçon is a gay swimwear and underwear brand that’s been around for a while, and for good reason. They know exactly how to find the perfect balance of sexiness and elegance in every design.

Charlie

The king of cleanly branded gay swimsuits Charlie by Matthew Zink products have perfectly inconspicuous logos. They’re really chic. 

And given these swimsuits come with a luxury price point, the joke goes: “Where’d you get your swimsuit?” …” Oh, it’s Charlie.”

Charlie gay swimwear

Choose among styles including square-cut briefs, low-cut lifeguard briefs, swim thongs, and a range of trunks. Most Charlie swimsuits are solid in color, but there are a few styles with color blocking and stripes.

COOFANDY

COOFANDY sells some of the most popular gay swimwear styles on Amazon. One of their top-rated products is the square-leg swim brief, which you can get in almost any color

If you need to match these with different outfits, they’re cheap enough that you can buy a few!

gay men's swimwear

They also make fantastic quick-dry swim trunks that have convenient pockets and are made of a form-fitting blend of spandex and polyester. I love how comfortable these are as they hug your waist without any liner beneath.

JJ Malibu

JJ Malibu has taken the gay men’s fashion market by storm, rapidly growing in popularity for bathing suits, circuit party gear, and their collections of gay underwear and jockstraps. Their swimsuits are particularly well-fitting for guys who are a little extra curvy.

JJ Malibu swimwear

All of JJ Malibu’s products have a casual and fun look. There are so many variations of colors, patterns, and cuts, you’ll just have to browse their shop!

Mizok

Mizok sells some of the sexiest gay men’s swimwear. They’ve also hugely expanded the range of prints and fits in the past couple of years.

Their metallic thong bikini is awesome, featuring a fun buckle around the waist and foam padding to support you in all the right places.

All Mizok’s swimsuits are designed around functionality and are made of quick-dry microfiber material. I think their solid-color drawstring swim briefs are pretty chic. They also have all kinds of printed boxer brief swimsuits and drawstring briefs.

Gary Majdell Sport

Gary Majdell Sport is an Amazon retailer that sells bold, sexy, and eye-catching swimwear for gay men.

The brand is noteworthy for shiny metallic bikinis as well as its collection of sexy stars and stripes thong swimsuits. If any Americans need something to wear on the 4th of July, get one of these!

Todd Sanfield

Todd Sanfield continues to climb the ranks of popular gay swimwear brands. Every design by Todd Sanfield is elegant, stylish, and well-made. It’s easy to tell that this brand takes care in creating high-quality swimsuits.

Todd Sanfield swimwear

The Challenger Trunk swimsuits have a unique and eye-catching fit. The Ultradeep Swim Brief is another favorite for such awesome and funky patterns.

Addicted

One of the most famous gay brands, Addicted swimsuits are worn by men around the world. From circuit festivals to pool parties, you’ll find guys in Addicted’s strongly branded swimwear.

Addicted is one of the few brands that make briefs that can be used as both underwear as well as a swimsuit. They call these “Swimderwear” briefs. I own a pair of these and they’re super comfortable. They last forever, too.

The Neon Swim Bikini Brief and the athletic Stripes Basic Brief are two other sexy and popular swimsuits by Addicted.

Addicted Fetish

Addicted Fetish is another gay men’s swimwear brand collection with functional products. But, their designs are sexier than most.

Not much can compare to their side zipper swim briefs, crafted to be able to come off in a jiffy.

The fetish gripper bikini is another sexy option. It has a low cut and includes a molded pad in the front pouch so you can maintain a fuller look.

Andrew Christian

Andrew Christian may be known for underwear, but they’re also well-established in the world of gay swimwear. Their styles are among the most playful you can find, like the chic Ring Bikini and the vintage Retro Bikini Briefs.

Other styles I love and want to mention are the zigzag-patterned Alexander Trunks, the elegant Mykonos Swim Shorts, and the vertically color-blocked Horizon Bikini.

Modus Vivendi

Modus Vivendi is a hugely popular Greece-based gay swimwear, activewear, underwear, and activewear brand with a vision to deliver a new experience in gay men’s fashion.

Their swimwear is made using high-quality polyamide and elastane blends, which are both soft and quick-drying. 

Modus Vivendi has a total of 15 different gay swimwear lines too, ranging from risqué thong swimsuits and bodybuilder briefs to elegant earthy-colored trunks.

Bang! Miami expands upon the traditional prints and patterns offered by other gay swimwear brands. The disco jungle and pop art designs are two of Bang’s signature collections.

Other awesome collections include 8-Bit Leopard, Splash, and Matrix, which all come in briefs, flex shorts, or leg-bearing show shorts. If you don’t know which to choose, see the brand’s line comparison guide.

Bang products ship in only one business day too, so you’ll get them fast!

Barcode Berlin

Looking for loud, fun, and in-your-face gay swimwear? Barcode Berlin is your brand. I chuckle just looking at their pink briefs with “Daddy” written in script on the back!

daddy swim briefs

Barcode Berlin also sells a lot of swimsuits with fruit prints on them, perfect for guys who love peach or eggplant innuendos. Their fetish rubber duck swim briefs are also cute.

UXH

I want to mention UXH specifically for their awesome pop art swim briefs. I love the soft colors and clarity of the print on these.

padded gay swimwear

Another awesome UXH product is the padded push-up briefs, which not only offer added pouch support, but have a sleek slightly see-through mesh on the sides that shows off just the slightest bit of skin underneath.

TOF PARIS

TOF PARIS swimsuit styles are bold and sexy while keeping it classy. They make every fit possible, too—bikinis, briefs, trunks, sungas, shorts, and even swim skirts!

TOF Paris gay swimwear

I love how many of their swimwear collections include matching tanks and crop tops. No other brand makes finding a complete gay swimwear look this easy.

Nasty Pig

You probably know Nasty Pig as an erotic, sexy gay brand for men’s underwear and jocks, but they also have a sizable gay swimwear collection.

Most of the swimsuits they make are bright-colored with playful prints, ranging from board shorts to bikinis.

DESMIIT

DESMIIT gay swimwear is sexy, sporty, and super affordable. A few of their designs have some unique and fun color blocking, like the skimpy low-rise drawstring briefs, and the match brief bikini.

While DESMIIT swimsuits might take a little longer than others to ship, you honestly can’t beat their prices.

New & Boutique Gay Swimwear Brands

Ron Dorff

Ron Dorff has been around in Europe for over a decade, but the brand is relatively new in the North American market. Ron Dorff is more of a luxury and boutique gay swimwear brand, crafting beautifully elegant designs.

Ron Dorff gay swimsuit

Their striped swim briefs are my absolute favorite. And if you’re looking to elongate your body to look taller, grab the pair with vertical stripes.

Nero New York

Nero is a new and fast-growing swimwear company catering to gay men. Many of Nero’s swim brief designs have an edgy look, like their Rhinestone Flame briefs and Acid Spray briefs.

They also sell products in bright colors and with funny phrases like the “dump him” briefs. With these unique designs and reasonable prices, Nero is certainly a brand to try!

Rounderbum is an incredibly unique brand that makes body-enhancing men’s swimwear and underwear. All of Rounderbum’s swimwear is padded, either in the front, the back, or both.

I have more pairs of Intimissimi swim trunks than I know what to do with. This Italian brand is spectacular and quite popular among gay men for its playful, fashion-forward, and elegant prints.

Longer Swim Shorts Brands for Gay Men

If you’re looking for more coverage or a more conservative swimsuit, I’ve got a few more suggestions for you.

Bjorn Borg men's swim shorts

Swim shorts by Bjorn Borg are super chic. Their swim shorts with large-letter branding, stretch swim shorts, and elegant printed swim shorts are all wonderful.

For a thicker, more sturdy fabric, try a pair of elastic swim shorts from Sundek. They’re tough, long-lasting, and built for performance. Sundek also sells men’s swim shorts made from a blend of polyester and eco-friendly recycled PET.
