“No, really, don’t forget, it’s nearly holiday time!” says another holiday company

Too revealing! 98% of women hate partners wearing Speedos on the beach … while 2% of men say girls should cover up in kaftans

Men wanting to top up their tan wearing Speedos this summer should think again.

Some 98 per cent of British women say they would not want their man anywhere near the bulge-bearing swimming gear, according to a new poll by travel agency On The Beach.

Swim shorts were the preferred option for 70 per cent of women polled, with 13 per cent saying opting for a more tight-fitting pair of brief shorts.

It’s holiday season, and don’t the newspapers know it, with no shortage of vacation reminders gracing the pages of the media. Including this one, ostensibly about beachware, but really nothing more than a reminder to check out another specific travel agent for the latest deals – in this case, ‘On The Beach’.

Alistair Daly, Chief Marketing Officer at On the Beach, said: ‘We often see pictures of celebrity men wearing tight-fitting Speedos on holiday but our survey suggests that girls are not keen on their partners doing the same.

‘It is a concern that some people don’t wear any form of sun protection. Whilst we all enjoy relaxing on the beach, trying to get that all important tan, everyone should make sure they are using the correct sun protection.’
