I know I’m known as one of the thong guys on UNB. When it comes to underwear, there are really three main styles I wear: thongs, jockstraps and briefs. I never know day to day which style I am going to be in the mood for, so I like to have a wide assortment of all kinds. That’s why even as a verified thong lover, I was happy to order a new pair of briefs from a brand I adore: AussieBum. It’s been a long time since I wore one of their classic original styles. The light pink classic original briefs were one of the first pairs of underwear I really enjoyed wearing on a daily basis.  At least when I first started realizing how much I truly enjoyed underwear. Needless to say, the pink briefs are no longer with us, so I was happy to order a new pair, this time in purple.

Classic Purple

I often complain there aren’t enough brands making underwear in purple. It’s my favorite color. One that I think I look best in. Sometimes purple is more slimming and sexy than black! And these AussieBum classic original briefs aren’t just any purple. They are a very deep royal purple. Truly the kind of purple you’d want your underwear to be. Just opening the package made me excited to wear them.

I am generally a medium in most brands, so I ordered medium in these briefs. They are a perfect fit for me. Sometimes depending on the style or fabric, AussieBum sizes don’t always run true.  For the most part, they are fairly spot-on. I wore them around on Christmas Eve, so there was actually a lot of movement and travel to get a good feel for them. Throughout the day, everything was kept in place, and the briefs were very comfortable to have on. Anymore, I prefer a pouch that bulges in all the right places.  These briefs are a standard pouch, so you don’t get any lift. That doesn’t really matter when it comes to AussieBum classic original briefs.  They are just comfortable and a good every day pair. They are sexy, too. The cut is low rise and features a flap on the pouch, but it’s not really a functional pouch – it’s more for looks. The briefs also hug around the back. If you like showing off your backside, these will do it very well. A comfortable option without wearing something that’s really going to dig into you while it lifts.

The briefs are ribbed, so if that’s aesthetically pleasing to you. It’s a definite positive because they are a really good rib. If purple isn’t for you, there are many other colors to choose from. All of them are vibrant and strongly dyed, so you are getting a true color. It’s one of the cases where the colors you see online aren’t photoshopped that much. You are ordering what you see.
