Daily Fit: 10/10
Daily Performance: 10/10
Pros: Nice soft fabric
Cons: No real cons, but only available in 4 colors
The Bottom Drawer Recommendation: Overall this is a solid bikini brief that would be great for everyday wear and probably be fine for active activities like sports.
This is the sister or maybe brother of the DC5 Slik G I reviewed a little bit back. I’m going to start with the slight modifications I’d make to the DC6 Slik Bikini, which are only personal preference. I’d like the front pouch to be a little narrower and a little less back coverage. With that being said these are super comfortable and a great bikini.
As I said with the G review, I was concerned about the pouch of these after my first experience with a pair of N2N. I am pleased with the fit of the pouch and the amount of support they give. N2N calls the pouch seamless, which is the look that it gives you of a smooth pouch with no seams. The pouch does have some stitching at the base of the pouch to give it some contouring. This contouring helps cradle the boys.
The fabric of the bikini brief I received actually feels softer to me than the thong version and feels great on. Both are made out of a blend of 92% polyester and 8% spandex fabric. I’m not a fan of the elastic waistbands that carry the brand name on them, so these are right up my alley there. They do have a small N2N logo tag on the right hip, which is subtle and how I think it should be. Another criteria that this pair of underwear met of mine are narrow sides. These come in at around one inch.
The two modifications I mentioned early do not detract from this being an excellent bikini brief. I would considering adding another pair of these to the collection. They are a little bit more than I would like to pay for a pair of underwear, but they are made in the USA. I do really like the mocha color (called brown on their website) I received. It is actually a color I don’t have in my underwear drawer, so it is a nice addition.
