Believe it or not I have never had a pair of Candyman Underwear. I hear you saying “NO WAY” but I could never fit in them before this year. Candyman is known for making very sexy, fun and erotic underwear. This is not the undies you wear to the gym or maybe even every day. But for a date night they would be amazingly fun to wear. The pair I have to review is the Candyman 9695 Brief. The brief is white with a gold waistband and a kind of lace up back.
I decided to take a chance and wear it to work. How many times have we all bought “date night” underwear and they last about 2-3 hours before its time they come off one way or another. My initial impressions were I may not like this pair. But, I was keeping an open mind. I usually like pairs with a more defined pouch and hoped it wouldn’t bind as the day went on. Also the back is a lace up and open and that gave me other room to worry. As the day wore on the material, 93% Polyester, 7% Spandex, held up pretty well. I wish it breathed more through the day but it really didn’t bother me too bad. After I put them on and my jeans over I forgot I was wearing a more “erotic” pair of undies. Granted that said I wouldn’t wear them to the gym or do anything super active, but for every day wear or lounging they would be fine.
Sizing was pretty good. If you follow their sizing chart you should be fine. Note that the XL isn’t a 38 or 40 but size 36. So this is smaller then American sizes we are used too. So make sure you follow the sizing guide, if you don’t you maybe sorry. The XL fit me pretty well for a 36 waist.
Overall I liked the pair and will definitely wear it again. I loved the gold waistband and thought it set the pair off nicely. There is a big trend in men’s underwear to bring in metallic accents. The lace up back I thought would just drive me insane through out the day really wasn’t noticeable. I will say it surprised me and became one of my favorite features. My biggest complaint is I wish the material were a little more breathable. If you are super active this will not be something you will like.
I will say I’m enjoying trying different undies now that I can fit in them. Candyman will be on my list and this will be the first of many pairs I plan to own from them. I mean it bites when you can’t wear undies you want to try. Candyman just has fun with undies and it shows in their designs.
