Bum-Chums is quite adorable in their approach to underwear shopping (even their little tushy logo is cute). I was sent a pair of Bum-chums to review, and low and behold, this hilarious pair of undies came into my life.
At first glance, it looks like a space suit turned into a trunk. After reading that the pair was Bum-chums’ “Moon Pants” hipster, I realized they lived up to the name perfectly. Without further ado, I slipped the hipster on.
I was surprised at how soft the inside felt compared to the shiny metallic layer on the outside of the nylon/lycra fabric. The hipster (aka trunk) fit very nicely in my allocated size, and hugged my butt firmly (the Brand knows what it’s doing), and had a nice amount of room in the front, I might even say verging on a little baggy.
As I said for a metallic underwear, they are very comfy to wear, but the Bum-chums site states that the Celestial (metallic) collection should be considered “Occasional” wear, because with too much heavy wear, the metallic finish might “tarnish” (read: rub off), and they won’t look as Moon-y.
The waistband was very nicely sewn onto the metallic fabric, leaving no uncomfortable metallic edged seam to rub against your hips. The cut on the undies has a seam up the back for more contouring on the “bum”, while the front has an inset two-panel pouch. The waistband also has a branding label sewn to the outside of the Left front hip. It’s a nice idea putting the uncomfortable tag on the outside, but it’s visually a little uncalled for.
Price-wise, for roughly 20$ USD, it’s not a bad price for such a cute pair.
- Super fun metallic look.
- Really comfortable.
- Well cut in the bum area.
- Not as great fit in the front pouch area.
- Not great for daily use (mind you, wearing silver undies daily might be a bit much anyway).
*OUT OF 5*
*because of the inability for daily wear
