We love heading to the best gay beaches in the world or best gay circuit parties and showing off one of the many gay swimwear brands we love.
It should come as no surprise that our suitcases have ended up well stocked with all of our favourite a gay swimwear brands because most of the time that’s all we seem to wear!
We appreciate the fact that these gay swimwear brands actually exist – they did not when we were younger!
Whilst all of these gay swimwear labels can be worn by everyone and everyone (not exclusively gay), it is clear that they specifically cater to the gay male market in ways that most high street retailers simply don’t.
We also like the fact that if you spot someone else wearing one of these gay swimwear brands then you can be 99% certain they are also gay – we always notice the other gay passengers on cruises (not gay cruises) by spotting who is wearing what!
If you are looking for more than just gay mens swimwear, check out these gay clothing brands for full outfit inspiration. If you are looking for something even less, head to our underwear guide.
As ever, it is always good to support gay owned or gay friendly businesses so if you needed an excuse to treat yourself, now you have one! [no_toc]
The 10 Hottest Gay Swimwear Brands
Let’s get started with some of the best gay mens swimwear brands.
This is one of our favourite gay swimwear brands which you will see all over our Instagram account (@theglobetrotterguys).
Addicted is based out of Spain and offers some of the best high quality swimwear available.
We love the range of styles they offer, from sleek and naughty to fun/tongue in cheek pieces (the back of the ones below say ‘slap this’).
If you start with one gay swimwear brand, make sure it is this one, they will always have you ready for your next vacation or circuit party!
For more head to addicted.es.
This has to be joint first with Addicted, we love this gay swimwear brand and have been wearing Garcon on our most recent trips.
Garcon Model are about performance, comfort, sustainable practises (big tick from us) and bringing some high-end fashion to gay men’s swimwear. We really like the style and fit of the ‘graffiti’ swimwear we are wearing below.
They have also started bringing out additional accessories with some stand out elasticated shoulder harnesses that you can not miss. See more on their website.
ES Collection and Addicted are sister companies. ES tends to provide cleaner, simple, premium styles of gay swimwear.
Both ES Collection and Addicted are manufactured in Spain to keep quality high (which we can attest to!). As a result, prices are higher than some other gay brands listed below but you get what you pay for.
The original creations by TOF Paris are made in France with quality fabrics. You can choose between men’s swim briefs, trunks or shorts and wear them with pride, as you are, gay or not, straight or queer!
This gay swimwear brand often incorporates enhancing technology systems. For example, internal pouch padding that gives a rounder and fuller pouch appearance which we are sure will always be well recieved at the beach!
