25 years ago. I embarked upon an underwear journey that began with discovery and exploration. A discovery of new styles, brands, and cuts, and an exploration of what I feel most comfortable wearing. The journey has been marked with several “aha” moments. That have left me speechless and, at times, baffled. Those moments have come to define my approach in attempting to find the best fitting and stylish underwear on the market.
A few years back, I stumbled upon the anatomical pouch through the purchase of an Andrew Christian Almost Naked Brief. Convinced that the anatomical and natural pouch was the only direction I needed to take in underwear selection. I purged nearly 100 pairs of designer briefs, trunks, and bikinis. Then began my personal quest to collect only underwear that were ergonomically correct in the front and center area. This has been a fun journey full of surprises. To date, I am nearing the 100 pair mark of anatomically correct briefs (my style of choice) in my collection.
This brings me to introduce this mini-series of post that will feature Ergowear and their pouches. The mini-series will consist of four posts. One for each of the Ergowear pouch styles and a bonus post that will deal with a shocker style that I never wear—at least until now! Grab some coffee, dim the lights, and enjoy these next few posts. Hopefully, you will identify with my remarks or be compelled to try out something that is reviewed.
PART I: The Feel Pouch
Daily Fit: 10/10
Daily Performance: 10/10
Pros: Super soft fabric, anatomical pouch
Cons: No cons.
SALVATORE Recommendation: I was excited the day my Ergowear Review package arrived in the mail. I get new underwear quite often. But there is something exhilarating about receiving a brand you’ve never tried before. Ergowear has long been considered the “gold standard” in anatomically or ergonomically correct pouches by most experts. This begs the question. That if I consider myself an underwear expert, how in the world had I never tried Ergowear? I’ve come to realize that sometimes even the most experienced underwear enthusiast misses something incredible.
As I carried the package inside, I went through my normal new underwear routine. I wen to my bathroom, opened the package, and enjoyed a few moments of solace with new arrivals. The first pair I pulled out was the FEEL SUAVE BIKINI.
Because I am a pouch snob, the first thing I did was go directly to the pouch. I was visually disappointed. But kind of expected it because I can typically tell by the pictures online if I am going to love a pouch or not. I did notice that the MINK color was pretty cool and almost completely match my skin tone. Nothing like having a nude pair of underwear to help you feel naked while wearing them. At any rate, I decided I that the FEEL pouch would be the first pair I would wear. So that I could work up to the pouches I was sure I would love. The other two Ergowear pouches are the MAX and X3D. I will talk about those in Part II and Part III of this mini-series.
I was taught early on in life to never judge a book by its cover. I am so glad I determined to wear the FEEL SUAVE BIKINI under jeans for an entire day while traveling. I WAS COMPLETELY SHOCKED when I put on the bikini and discovered that the non-anatomical looking pouch was indeed a natural fit for my boys. The Ergowear Feel Pouch differs from most anatomical pouches because it is not form fitting. It doesn’t hug or envelope the package like most other pouches do. I’m not saying that I prefer this over the snug fitting pouch. I am saying that this is a great alternative and helps to mix it up a little. Because the pouch is what I look for first in a great pair of underwear, this got my review off to a great start.
The construction on the bikini is superior to almost anything I have every worn. The seat offers a slightly less than full coverage back-end and stayed in place all day long (even while in the car for several hour). The pouch felt natural and never left me feeling restricted or bound. Not only did the pouch give me a boost, the butt of the underwear gave me a full and round look (great under jeans). I simply did not want to take them off. I slept in them and worked out in them the next morning. This pair of underwear had everything that I look for in perfection—ergonomical pouch, soft fabric, great elastic, sexy color, and awesome appearance. I don’t know how Ergowear has been around since 2002 and I am just now slipping them on. I FULLY RECOMMEND BUYING THIS PAIR.
