I'm off to a holiday park in Brittany next week and am wondering if I should buy some before I go.. and where from? Who in the name of Mark Spitz wears frigging Speedos these days? Apart from the French?
I can confirm that you CANNOT wear bermuda shorts or its ilk in swimming pools. Paedos rule...what you need to buy is the briefs, kind of short cycling shorts, believe me you feel less naked. Adidas used to do some good ones.(typical french guy on holiday camp = speedos, vest, flip flops - get out Camping on DVD ...)
