Default Arena Japan on ebay

I was looking for a swim brief with some specific characteristics. I wanted a low rise cut with narrow side (less than 2 inches), comfortable and family friend to be worn in public pools. And as it was for lap swimming it had to be tight enough. I bought a Neptune Scepter but I found it not conservative enough. Finally here is what I found and now makes the job :
https://m.ebay.com/itm/Arena-AST14103-Low-Rise-Swimwear-Narrow-Sides-Light-Metallic-Colors/192510448047?hash=item2cd28451af:m:maYhPfOHFaJAPMJ ygayWTFw
It is from Arena Japan. Very good quality, 3 cm side, very comfortable to swim. The funny side : the logo Arena on the front is visible only when wet...
It is true to size, as I have taken size 32. I have more space at the front than in my Desmiit. It is now my choice for outdoor swimming. The seller has other cool stuff, and I will probably come back on his store

Default New suit from ebay

Frog, Great looking suit you posted from ebay and glad you find that it has everything you want in a suit. Surprised it is more conservative than your Neptune Scepter, as being an Asian style it rides lower and has a smalled side width. Enjoy it and sure it looks good on you. Hope you post a few photo of you wearing both of them.

Iíve bought a fair few suits off his eBay store. Iíve got that exact suit and I love it. Super comfortable, small sides but still somewhat conservative.

They arnt Japanese suits though. They are standard Asian cut available in Singapore. Japanese suits are a whole different level of tight and small.

Yes you're right the store is in Singapore. So it is not japanese... Perhaps fake Arena but good quality.
And yes I find it more conservative than Neptune Scepter at the front. It doesn't make a big visible bulge, to be clear
No problem at all in a public pool. I will try to post some photos.

They arnt fake arenas. They make different cuts and styles for different markets. Iíve been to the actual ARENA store fronts in Singapore and seen these exact suits. The guy on eBay is just a reseller
