My conquest of 15 new brands for my underwear drawer in 2015 continues with Pump Underwear.
Pump Underwear has been #1 on my list for the past year. I have loved their look, advertising, and style but was always a little concerned that I may not like the mesh underwear. I did not have much experience with mesh underwear and the few that I had worn were not my favorite. That did not stop me from putting them at the top of my list and you can imagine my excitement when I received my first pair to review. I started off with the Raver Brief. I chose this brief because I love the color combination of the neon blue and green and look of the brief. To me, it looks like fashion meets athletic in the perfect combination for a man.
When I first opened the pair, I immediately noticed how soft they were. I expected the mesh to have a rougher feel but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t. I slipped them on and the softness continued. Once again, I did not entirely know what to expect with the mesh but this nylon, cotton, spandex combination is pure heaven. The pair fit great in all aspects. I wear a medium and was forewarned that their sizing is European, something I had not experienced before. The pair fit perfectly and was not too tight at all. I had great room and movement in the front pouch, giving me the support I wanted in a pair of underwear. It covers the back perfectly and feels great all the way around. There is even some added elastic in the leg opening which adds a little extra support, allowing the pair to sit exactly where it needs to, while even giving your butt a little lift and comfort.
As usual, I took this pair on a busy workday to see how it could hold up to a lot of movement. And how did it hold up? Amazingly! I never had to adjust the underwear and not one time did I feel any sort of discomfort. There was no riding up, discomfort, tight waistband, rubbing, or anything negative. I did everything from sitting to standing, walking, and even hitting the gym. It held up to the highest expectation I had for it. This is huge for every guy. The last thing we want is to be at work or out and about, having to adjust ourselves or pick at underwear that is riding or chafing. The Raver Brief allowed for great movement with no negative consequences. In fact, it even has great breathability with its micromesh material. You won’t be hot and sweaty with that added feature. When that happens, you know you found a special pair of underwear. I almost wanted to pinch myself to make sure it wasn’t a dream. Luckily, it was no dream, just a dream pair.
The only negative thing I can say about Pump Underwear is…..why did I wait so long to have you???? If you are looking for a fashionable yet athletic inspired pair of underwear. This is it. If you want comfort with style and finesse. This is it. All in all, this was the pair I was waiting for. To me, it was the perfect pair and one I want to become my go to pair of underwear for maximum comfort and visual appeal. I loved it. I can honestly say this is the best pair of underwear I have worn. Thank you Pump Underwear for making this amazing pair of underwear. I can’t wait to see more of what Pump has to offer.
