Tight swimming trunks, including those made by Speedo, have been rated as the UK’s most hated piece of clothing.
The male swimwear – often simply referred to as Speedos or budgie-smugglers – is essentially a waterproof pair of briefs which are very fitted.
In a YouGov survey, more than two thirds of Britons said they disliked the trunks, while 74% of women shared an unfavourable view of them.
Only 13% of the 3,277 people asked said they liked them.
Out of the 25 pieces listed, leather trousers were voted the second worst item while Crocs – the popular rubber shoe – came third.
