Singlets have been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. I have written many times about my love of them. Now they have hit mainstream and a lot of companies are making them. Some are for more work out activities and others are more erotic in nature. While I wouldn’t say the LA Pop Singlet is an “erotic” singlet it is super sexy.
When I got to pick what I wanted UNB to review, this was top of the list. And luckily they sent us one to review. When I was in Vegas and met with them about the new collection. Their wholesale guy said there was one singlet I was going to love. I was curious as to which it is. The USA singlet had been released and it was awesome. When the model came out in this I was hooked. I had to have it. The print is amazing and fun.
Its always difficult to review a singlet to me. I mean I’m not going to find someone and best of 5 pins wins. Its not something you want to wear to work, because it’s not practical to wear under work clothes. So how do you review it? I wore it one night while I was watching TV and to sleep in. I figured that if it was super comfy to sleep in, any activity would be good in it.
The first thing I noticed was the great fit. Sometimes singlets can have really tight straps that were hard to put on. That is, some singlets you put on through the neck, through the side. Others can be just annoying when you can’t stretch the material to get it on. This singlet I put on through the arm opening. The shoulder straps went over my head without issues and fit snug in the shoulder.
The LA Pop singlet is made out of 83% nylon 17% spandex fabric. A singlet you want in thicker material, especially if you want to have it on during any athletic activity. The fabric is bright made out of blues, yellows, oranges and purples. It’s a more abstract print. The fabric is off set by black trim that frames it nicely. The neck, arm and neck openings are all black. Most singlets tent to be solids or color blocks. This is a breath of fresh air in the world of singlets.
I found this singlet super comfy to sleep in. I have slept in many singlets over the years. Sometimes the shoulder straps dig in or they loose their shape. This one did not do either. If felt amazing to wear all night. When I woke up I didn’t’ want to take it off. The pouch is great too. Its not defined like the Performance X singlets I have but its supportive and holds your goods nicely.
Sizing for singlets can be tricky. It’s not like underwear. You have to take in your height, waist size and build. If you are a medium in underwear but yet over 6’2” you will need to get a larger size. If you’re a more muscular or beefy guy you def need to look at a larger size. The singlet I received was an XL. The reason is I’m 6’4”, stocky and there is no way I would be in a large. Even when I was in better shape XL for my height always fit. This is true for a spandex material.
