Just as important it is to choose the perfect swim trunk as knowing how to wear it. And definitely some celebrities have inspired us to learn how we should avoid being seen in our trunks. For example, Paolo Maldini, with a good choice of bright yellow tones which would have been perfect if had he not shown his slips underneath. Or Sete Gibernau rolling his swimsuit to maximize his bronzed legs.
