I am very excited to be reviewing my first pair of boxers for UNB. Today’s pair is the Front Mesh Boxer from Clever. This pair is made of 94% cotton and 6% spandex blend for a snug fit. These boxers are available in a black/gray and green/black color combinations and feature a comfortable logo waistband. And as the name suggests, the front panels are made of mesh. I am always a big fan of mesh in undies.
I have worn the Clever Front Mesh Boxer several times since I received them. Personally, I like to put a new pair through the paces and wore this pair both for a relaxing day lounging on the couch and some busy days around town where I spent my time on and off the metro, walking all over the city and taking a couple sit-down meetings for good measure.
With that said I must admit that I’m a bit torn about this pair. The snugness that I previously mentioned is a double-edged sword. The seat felt a little too snug, like I was always on the verge of (and please forgive the crude terminology) a wedgie and they tend to ride up on the legs just a tad and the snugness meant they did not return when I stood up. This was especially noticeable when I was lounging around my house; however, when I wore them on my more active days, I did not notice the wedgie or riding up. Not too say this snugness is all negative because this pair made my ass look amazing – seriously, I received comments.
Another detail that deserves further mention is the mesh front. As usual when mesh is used in undergarments, this promoted great circulation and kept all the equipment cool on the days that I found myself running for the train. The mesh was comfortable like a pair of comfortable basketball shorts, and while it is definitely noticeable, it isn’t so bad that I would avoid wearing them to the gym. Additionally, the construction is also very sturdy which can sometimes be lacking with mesh.
Overall, I still find myself in the middle of this review. They looked amazing but weren’t always the most comfortable which to me is a big factor.
