For my third review, I wore the Clever Custok Latin Brief in blue. I own a thong by Clever that I love so I was optimistic going into this review from the start. The pair comes in three colors (Blue, Gray & Green) and retails for $28.48 on the Clever website.
The mesh-like fabric felt sporty and sexy so I wore these on a long day that would really test them. When I put them on that morning the first thing I noticed was the great color(s). While mainly blue, there is a gray pouch. The red waistband with yellow/gold lettering and fun, contrast stitching. After a long work day at the office, I ran some errands around town and even went for a jog. These briefs really got a workout and held up great! I forgot I was wearing them for the most part, which for me is a sign you’re wearing a great pair of underwear.
When it comes to sizing, these do run a bit small as their own sizing chart indicates. So there shouldn’t be any surprises. The medium fits a 30-32 waist and being a 31-32, they worked for me but certainly didn’t leave much extra room. If you’re on the larger end of your size spectrum, you might go up one size.
The fabric is 73% nylon and 27% spandex. Which gives this pair great stretch. With a cut that definitely shows you off the perfect amount and offers great support. The seam going up the back defines your butt which is a blessing for those of us that can use all the help we can get! The bright colors were in an unusual combination that made me love them even more. Definitely not your typical briefs.
