So for those of you who swim for fitness and/or performance, what type of bathing suit do you swim with ?

Board shorts. They are great all purpose clothing items as well. Last summer I wore them almost exclusively.

those are the really long swim trunks...right ?

does the 'drag' provide for an extra hard swimming work out ?

Agreed. Boardshorts are nice.

BTW, there should be a license requirement to wear thong/speedo/bikini.

Performance: Aquablade briefs, atleast I think that's their official name.
While practicing I wear a larger suit, a couple sizes larger and baggier, but still briefs.

For fun I wear whatever I have handy. Sometimes it's briefs at the beach, sometimes its trunks, sometimes it run into water with whatever I've got on.
