We’re gay, so summer doesn’t end at the stroke of midnight the morning after Labor Day. Summer is a state of mind, after all.
We’ve worked hard on our bodies and even harder not being seen in the same swimsuit twice. So it wouldn’t be crazy to catch us clinging to a noodle, floating in our pool in the middle of October just for one last chance to be seen in our favorite squarecut.
Underwear and swimsuit whores that we are, we’re constantly seeking out the greatest of each category. And this long holiday weekend will be one you’ll never forget if you stroll the beach or troll the pool in one of the knockout suits from LASC. People will be buying you drinks for a change.
Our only four criteria for a sexy swimsuit is that it: 1) fits well; 2) is flattering; 3) features eye-catching fabrics; and, 4) is worn by Ricky Martin. Doesn’t sound too hard, but you’d be surprised how many suits we’ve tried on that accentuate all the wrong things, embrace that Tommy Bahama look a little too freely, or stretch out after the first use.
Nothing’s more embarrassing than diving into a pool and having your swimsuit float to the surface because it no longer forms to your body. After dark, maybe that would be a welcome turn of events depending on the guest list, but during the day when the eyes of the world are upon us, we prefer not to come up nekkid.
The two best styles at LASC are the squarecuts and the trunks. Board shorts are so bulky when wet and show so little skin, we might as well be wearing our burkini. But the squarecuts are so immensely flattering that we just can’t help but love them.
If you want to go a little more Mad Men old-school, check out the trunks. They’re short, but not tight. So you can show a lot more leg, less franks and beans.
The patterns on all their products are fun, fresh and stylish. Because if we’re attacked by piranhas and Elisabeth Shue can’t save us, by god we’re end up a pile of meat with a kick-ass swimsuit. That’s our dying wish.
