I am loving Kiniki underwear. The next pair we have furnished by them to review is the Bandicoot Hipster. It has a funny name but it’s actually a jock boxer. This is my first time ever wearing this style. It may seem odd that I run an underwear blog and never wore a jock boxer before. It took me a while before I finally tried my first jock brief. It’s not that I have an aversion to the pairs but just didn’t have the opportunity to give them a try.
This being a new style for me I wasn’t sure what to expect. I slid it on and noticed you had to use some extra help in the back to pull up the legs. If this is going to be the way I have to deal with this pair all day, it won’t be fun. At least those were my thoughts. But, I had to give it a try! At first I felt kinda of naughty and sexy. Here you are in this trunk but with an open back. I kind of liked this feeling.
I wore this around running errands and working as well. My initial thoughts of the pair didn’t come to pass. It held up quite well. Even being not a huge fan of boxer briefs, the support and fit of these were pretty nice. They fit pretty well and moved with me through out the day. The front gave great support and things didn’t move around through out the day. I was very pleasantly surprised at this. Add in the sexy feel and I really liked them.
If you read the Bandicoot Tanga review from last week, this pair has the same fabric as the that pair. It’s a very comfortable Cotton Lycra blend fabric. It really fits great. Kiniki says this pair has “comfortable and enhancing with an integrated front pouch adding to form and function.” I would totally agree. It’s one of the better pouches on trunk/hipster I have tried. I will say they definitely succeeded on the pouch!
Sizing for me was good. Like the Tanga this pair has a waist band that was almost at the too tight level when putting on. During the day there was no issue. It was only when I was putting on or taking off. Outside of that the XL I was given fit pretty well. As always double check your sizing charts for what size you should get.
