Doctors and Tan Lines. Has you doctor ever noticed or commented on your tan line? I got a pronounced speedo tan this summer. Earlier this week, I went to my dermatologist for my annual skin exam. The assistant that took me back gave me the usual instructions, everything off and put the drape on my lap.
We understand that going Speedo for competitive swimmers is a choice driven by performance. However, the average straight American man is conditioned to fear those itty-bitty pieces of spandex that fit snugly against his jewels and leave nothing to the imagination. Do they have bigger balls than us figuratively speaking, of course? Even if you have all the self-confidence in the world, have a little consideration for the people around you.

All rights reserved. Freestyle swimmer, Nathan Adrian, is used to showing a lot of skin in front of large crowds, so perhaps it's no surprise that he agreed to pose for this year's Body Issue. Here's more from his shoot. Shooting underwater required plenty of extra equipment for Lippman and his assistants. I'm not quite as flexible as a ballerina, but there are some swimmers who are pretty darn close to that. For someone as tall as I am, I have hypermobile joints. I have this long torso, I have super flat feet, I have pretty flexible shoulders.

If you have never worn Speedos, ask yourself if it is because you' ae overly self-conscious about your body, or if your social conditioning makes you question whether real men wear bikini-cut swimwear. They do - just about everywhere except the U. If you have been neglecting your health to the point that you do not have the endurance to do laps, your waist size is as big or bigger than your chest, then maybe you should see your doctor and think about changing your diet and start moderate exercise before putting any style of swimsuit on. Otherwise, if you like them, if they feel great, then does it matter what anyone else thinks?
