Swimsuit Buyers Guide – Men’s Swimwear Styles

Perhaps you need a new swimsuit – check these suggestions out, whether you like the traditional ‘speedo’ variety, or the swim bike pants called ‘jammmers’. The only thing missing is the traditional men’s one piece swim suit, which is great for those guys who don’t have a 6 pack or have scars or burns on their abdomen. I can’t seem to find many men’s one piece swim suits, email me at lycraluva at gmail dot com if you do come across any. Thanks in advance LL.

For all the information you ever wanted to know about wearing tights – great advice – thanks Cupcakes and Totes,

Cupcakes And Totes


The other day I walked into a cute little store and found these wonderful purple tights. After purchasing them, I rushed them home only to discover I had absolutely no idea what to wear them with. After hours on the computer, I finally created an outfit while developing the idea for this post.

Purple Tights:


In order to pull off purple tights, It’s important to not wear too much purple. A splash of colour is fine but too much purple can leave you looking like a beetroot.

The singlet…the modern uniform and arguably the most recognizable aspect of amateur wrestling (folkstyle, freestyle, and greco-roman).  However, the sport may be getting a new look in the coming years, which may not include the iconic one-piece.

Ever since the IOC (International Olympic Committee) announced the removal of wrestling from the 2020 Olympics in February of last year, it sparked a wildfire of wrestlers, fans, and supporters from across the globe.  It also shook up the governing body of FILA ( Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées or International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles), who replaced their president and started to put forth proposals to help “modernize” the sport as well as make it more appealing to the masses.
