Is there a difference between a swimsuit for a boy and a swimsuit for a girl? For example in English boys wear swim shorts or swim trunks is there a separate word for that in French? Thanks
Well, maillot de bain would be used to describe a generic swimsuit, a garment that men, women, or children would wear to go swimming.
If you wanted to talk about a speedo I would use -
slip de bain
A boy could wear a boxer/ short de bain also.
Take a look at the following page from a well-known catalogue -
Hope this helps!
