Where can I buy a swimsuit? Specifically a speedo or tight

Hi, in Playa on Vacation right now. Yesterday went running and paddleboarding and my boardshorts chafed the hell out of me. Looking to go grab a speedo or some of those tight square cut shorts to wear under my boardshorts.

Can anyone recommend where to go to get something like this? I had read about a place called JOCKS on ave 15 howeve saw a thread about them having a going out of business sale. WOuld prefer a cheaper place but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Also on a side note at at El Fogon last night, awesome so thanks to you guys for that recommendation.

Buy some Gold Bond medicated powder. Just make sure you're dry before applying or you'll make biscuits on your tackle.

Try Mega or even Walmart. They both carry swimsuits.

Also buy anti-chafing ointment/cream. it is usually with the other topical first aid supplies. We don't go to MX without it!!!

Try the sportwear stores - Marte Sports (?). They usually have a small selection. iAlso, Diesel may have some, not sure if there is a store in Playa, but thought I saw one once.

I mentioned this post to my husband - he said why not just wear tighty-whities underneath?

board shorts or swim trunks I hear ya loud and clear, and with a mesh liner even worse! pick up a pack of low rise or bikini briefs, cotton/spandex or blend will dry quicker too, and half the cost of 1 speedo!
