UNB Ryan’s recommendation: If you like tiny, almost not there bikini underwear, this is the pair for you. The Brazilian Back String Bikini from Daniel Alexander feels great against the skin, doesn’t over-accentuate your package by lifting it out in the front, and feels rather sexy hugging your butt all day. I love the way it features a tiny Brazilian back with tiny ¼” string sides that would almost be more at home on the beach than under a pair of dress slacks!
I haven’t worn Daniel Alexander in the past, so I decided to give them a try with the Brazilian Back String Bikini. I am normally a thong wearer, but allow myself to try other things from time to time, and this skimpy bikini sounded like it would fit the bill. If I’m not going to wear a thong, I typically want to wear the slinkiest pair of underwear that I can find. This style from Daniel Alexander was definitely tiny! I looked forward to wearing this pair after placing my order, and planned to wear them first on a normal workday as I do most of my new styles.
I have worn these underwear numerous times to work, out shopping with the wife, and lounging around the house. For leisurely activities, these work great, but they are pretty tiny and don’t really offer much support, so I don’t think they’d be very well suited for wearing to workout or on a run. These feel great against the skin, and gently hug your package and butt. The only downfall to the style is the material used for the waistband isn’t very stretchy, so they don’t fit as tightly as I like.
These underwear are constructed very well-after numerous outings in them I haven’t noticed any stretching or stitching coming unraveled. The fabric used is a polyamide/spandex blend that feels nice against the skin, and doesn’t require any special care. The pouch on this pair is a flat front design, so you can feel free to wear these under any type of pants without the fear of them showing off too much. The pouch holds your package in a downward position and is not a push out design. The rear of the suit is a Brazilian design and doesn’t cover very much. They feature a flat coverage back and are not gathered or bunched in the rear. I like the fact that they are as skimpy as they are-it’s exactly what I was looking for in a Brazilian cut.
I bought these in a size small, as I do all of my underwear. I normally wear a size 31-32 in dress pants and have found that for most styles a small fits me well. This style is an exception-they fit well everywhere other than the waist. I think it is due to the material used for the waistband not being very stretchy. If I had to make any suggestions to Daniel Alexander concerning this style I would recommend that they replace the waistband with a different style or fabric.
In the past, I wouldn’t of really been too excited about a simple bikini style like this one. However, after reviewing a couple of pairs, I am a Brazilian bikini fan! If you like small bikinis, don’t let this one pass you by. The only downfalls to this pair of underwear are the straps not being very stretchy and the sizing being off. If you wear a larger size, give this pair a try and perhaps size down when ordering. Drop me a line in the comments if you try a pair!
