From OpenwaterpediaSpeedo (established 1928) brand racing swimsuit has led to the use of its name to refer to any racing or swim brief regardless of the manufacturer. Swim briefs are made of fast-drying, form-fitting nylon and spandex (Lycra), polyester or other materials and are cut similar to underwear briefs.
Swim briefs are worn for various reasons including ease of movement in water, reduction of drag as compared to Board shorts, skin exposure, style, quick drying time, minimization of friction and water retention, and the ability to be worn under pants or shorts.
