Speedo is a swimwear brand and it's also the name synonymous with brief-style swimwear worn by men or boys. Competitive swimmers prefer Speedo-style swimwear because it is designed to adhere to the body and allows for movement. Yet Speedo swimwear is suitable for everyday pool play as well. When fitting a boy for Speedo swimwear, you'll want to consider the size of his everyday clothing and use Speedo's fit guide.

  1. 1

    Check the label on a pair of the boy's trousers to see what size they are. You're looking for a number between 6 and 20. This will give you an idea of what size Speedo he will wear.

  2. 2

    Measure the boy's waist in inches.

  3. 3

    Measure the boy's chest in inches.

  4. 4

    Consult the Speedo size chart to select the size that best corresponds to the boy's measurements. Look under each even-numbered clothing size for the measurements that would fit the boy comfortably. For example, if he wears a size 10 in clothing, but has a 27-inch waist, choose the Large size Speedo instead of the Medium just in case.
