    I am new to scuba diving and just got my wetsuit and was wondering what do other guys wear underneath? My regular swim suit just seems way too bulky.

    I am afraid the answer will be a speedo. :shocked2:

    Not that there is anything wrong with that, I just hate them.

    I normally wear compression shorts, like under armor.

    I wore a speedo type thing for years in the 70's, 80's, and even into the 90's.
    But, the things got to be of poor quality, and they started revising the fit to a point that I no longer found them comfortable.
    I wear a Reel Legends surfer style/board shorts bathing suit now.
    It is set up like a pair of cargo shorts with pockets.

    Regular swimming trunks, board shorts. Nothing special.

    Nothing... Same thing with my drysuit.

    If I can not change for whatever reason, I generally just stuff my board shorts down into my wetsuit the best I can.

    I do wear a pair of shorts with pockets over the outside of my wetsuit though.

    I wear a cheap pair of compression shorts under mine. When I get out of the suit, I generally just leave them on, pull on a pair of board shorts or nylon hiking shorts.

    I wear full length compression pants. Helps the wetsuit slide on & off easily.
