Sluggers Swimwear Fit Guide

Use the chart below as a guide to find the right Sluggers for your body shape. Ultimately the best Sluggers will be the ones you feel most confident in, and if you've never worn swim briefs before we recommend you start with a pair of DEETEES.
 
Classics and Racerbacks don't contain any lycra which makes them incredibly chlorine resistant - they will last years with regular lap swimming - but they need to fit your body shape.
If you're buying Sluggers as a gift we recommend buying DEETEES and using your man's underwear size as a guide.
 
Remember we have a no questions asked return policy, so if you're not sure it's OK to buy a pair in each style and return whatever doesn't work.
 
Use your underwear size as a guide to our waist sizing.
 

DEETEES

DEETEES are an easy wearing cut.
 
The mix of UltraClo lycra and Polyester means they hug softly to any body shape.
 
The 7cm side width is particularly good for taller men who worry that a swim brief may appear 'skimpy'.
 
If you're buying Sluggers to wear at the beach or recreational swimming we recommend DEETEES.
 
We joke that they are great for the pool, beach, gym and mowing the lawn - but they're so comfortable you're going to want to live in them. They are easy wearing, look great and really comfy.

Classics

The Classics have no lycra - they are 100% polyester. This makes them incredibly chlorine resistant, but it also means your body needs to fill them out or they can appear saggy at the back.

The 5cm side width is perfect for lap swimming to reduce any chaff in your hip crease, but it also makes the Classics look really good on a bloke who is 5"10 or under. Our main model, Ben wears Classics.

Classics are built for stocky or 'rugby' builds. If you have a round bum these are the cut for you.

Classics feature our unique 'half bind' lining in the front. The lining only goes down half way to create a comfy pouch for your junk - although we don't do this with the lighter coloured prints as they can be too sheer.

Racerbacks

The Racerbacks also have no lycra - they are 100% polyester. This makes them incredibly chlorine resistant.

We made these particularly for lean, athletic builds. If you're the kind of guy who finds it hard to put on weight or has 'no arse' in jeans - these are the Sluggers for you.

Racerbacks have a 5cm side width perfect for lap swimming to reduce any chaff in your hip crease. They also look great on a bloke who is 5"10 or under as the slimmer sides look great proportionately. We also cut them around 1cm lower than the Classics.

Sunga

Our take on the Brazilian SUNGA style has an 11cm side width and draw string. The SUNGA is a fun style and looks great on taller or heavier blokes. It's not a good option for shorter fellas as the wider sides aren't a good proportionate fit.

Little Sluggers

We based these on the cut of our Racerbacks and suggest buying a size based on your Little Mate's age - or the next number up as a rough guide. So if you have an active 7 year old you should grab him a air of 8's. Our son is a lean 10 year old and he's still wearing his size 8 Sluggers.
