I think that totally depends on the man now. Last yr. on disney Wonder we had an older man with a huge beer beely wearing swim trunks too small that would not stay up over the belly. H e had a good 6 inches of butt crack showing. I believe I would have preferred speedos on him.
I notice some say go for it but personally I say take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Speedos are not attractive on over weight middle aged men just like g- string bikinis are not a good look for any women over a size 6.
I don't mind if a person looks "hot" so much but I absloutely hate seeing someone make a fool of him or herself. Lets face it people -very few of us can pull off the look.
Now I am a woman well into middle age-but I would not have worn a string bikini in my 20's- back when I was a size 3/4 and 100 pounds. even though I was small back then, I still had figure flaws and because of my own self respect-there was no way I would have done that-but yet many a time I see women much older and much less attractive looking like fools. Ditto for men.
So as I repeat myself-take a long look in the mirror and then decide if you can get away with it.
