Male Power is a designer of sexy underwear for the modern man.  We find from their company website that they were created in 1974.  I never would have thought they had been around for that long.  It was only a few months ago that I first saw a pair in a catalog.  They have been shown in various publications during their company lifespan.  Out of their vast collection, I was given the Tattoo Mini Short to review.

This was the first pair made by them that I have worn.  Immediately after putting them on, I realized that sizing was an issue.  I normally wear smalls and that’s what I was supplied.  If you are on the upper end of their size ranges, get the next size up.  Male Power smalls are 28-30.  There were other issues that would have been present other than the size.  Even though they were a little snug, they were fine to wear in the beginning of the day.  I chose to carry on with my review and hope for the best.

As you can tell by the picture, the waistband is almost non-existent.  The waistband measures .86 in (2.22 cm).  I, personally, am used to a wider waistband because of the cut-in issue.  The same material is used in the leg openings.  I, like many of our readers, have thick thighs and need more forgiving material in that area.  Over the period of time I wore this pair, the piping material began to cut into my thighs.  I can’t deal with this on any underwear and so I took them off halfway through a work shift.

The material used to make the mini short was a great choice.  I loved the feel against my skin.  The material is made of 85% nylon and 15% spandex.  This combination allows for a bit of stretch.  There is a pouch design incorporated into the front of the short.  Whether that allows for enough room is per the individual.  It was OK with me.  I’m not really a fan of the print, but that is totally up to the wearer.  Some of the seams should be looked at when producing the product as there were some spots where the stitching was questionable as to how long it would hold out in daily wear.

As long as the size works with the wearer, I don’t see any problems with daily wear.  The material is comfortable and it gives a fair amount under normal circumstances.  The care instructions advise to wash in cool water (no bleach) and tumble dry cool.  It would probably be better to simply hang them to dry.  I don’t know of anyone that drys anything cool.
