Penekini Male Bathing Suit Leaves Little To The Imagination

June 16, 2014 - By Jan Rainey

It what seems like a joke, the marketing slogan for the new male “penekini” swimsuit is “fashion that fits you”. However a cursory glance suggests that while it may fit quite well, it only fits one specific area!

The modest design leaves little to the imagination, though it is intended to be worn in public on the beach or by the pool. It was created by Colombian fashion designer Alfredo Barraza, who wanted to spice things up a little, instead of sticking to the same old shorts or speedo male bathing suits that we’re all used to seeing.

It is essentially half a thong that is only supported by one leg. It covers the penis and testicles, but that is literally all.

Although the campaign promotes the penekini’s convenience and simplicity, it’s controversy that will no doubt lead to the most publicity and sales.

Unless you are particularly fit and flamboyant man, who has undergone the gambit of grooming techniques, you’re unlikely to want to wear one nor get the desired response from onlookers.

On sale for around 130 Lempiras, the penekini has already been spotted on beaches in Brazil and across Latin America, and has been featured in news coverage all around the world.

It is also available in multiple colours, though the “simple” design only comes in one variety … revealing.

Would you consider wearing the penekini? Is it just a gimmick, or is it about to take the world by storm?
