For my second review here at UNB, I received the hip brief from the British Puddings line from Bum-Chums. This line has several cuts (hip brief, trunk, jock and what they call a slingshot). They also have a few different color choices – mine were Berry Cumpote. I had never tried Bum-Chums . I have heard of them through a few different websites and always like to try something new. They retail for around $25 when you convert the price from British Pounds.
I wore these to work on a VERY hot Monday. Driving around town, sitting at my desk, taking a walk at lunch and then a haircut on my way home. This was before going to dinner gave these a real test drive! The briefs were very comfortable and stayed in place throughout the day. They would definitely be in my regular rotation – even for activewear since the material is suited for that. (92% Polyamide and 8% Elastane)
Sizing is a bit off for me because their website says a medium covers 32-34. I am a 31-32 waist these mediums fit just right. If I followed their guide, I would have ordered a small and I think they would have been too tight. So I recommend going a size up.
I loved the style of these briefs! The color was a bit louder than I usually choose but that made them more fun. They are a hip brief so they have small-ish sides without being tiny. The pouch gave a good amount of room up front and held things in place. Despite their name, I didn’t notice any change in how my bum looked in these briefs, but they felt great! One element that guys might not love is that the elastic around the legs. While very fun in contrasting color, is a bit too wide. This didn’t cause any discomfort during the day. It feels a little heavy – especially where the seams are. My last little complaint is the silly name. I’m not a huge fan of underwear brands with cheeky names, especially when it’s written all over the waistband. I realize I’m a bit of a dud for saying this, but there it is.
