Review #4 was the Manview Calor brief in blue. This was a new brand for me so I had no expectations going in. When I first opened the package, I liked the colors and style immediately so I was excited to give these a shot. From what I can find online. These are also available in a green/gray combination.
Lots of driving and some projects that were outside made these VERY sweaty and gave them a run for their money. I liked the soft fabric and fun styling the minute I pulled these briefs on. But might not choose them for a really hot, active day or for the gym. Because it seems the material isn’t made for that and doesn’t dry quickly and I’m not a huge fan of a damp crotch all day!
The sizing online says they run small so buy accordingly. I am a 31-32 and this medium fit just right. The 6% spandex provides a good amount of stretch and the 94% cotton makes them soft.
The cut is that of a modern brief. With the front and back panels connected to side panels in contrasting white fabric. which makes them just a little different and allows the bright, red piping to really show. The waistband is larger than usual with MANVIEW written in large lettering. Which was fine for me, but might bother those who like less elastic around their waist. The back of these briefs was full but did ride up just a little throughout the day. Not enough to be annoying but I found myself adjusting them every so often.
Overall these are a pair I would recommend. I will continue to wear – just not on overly active days when I want a pair to stay in place without any fuss. The multiple colors were great and make them stand out in my drawer of over 200 pairs, which is a huge bonus.
