I purchased the Joe Snyder Bulge Boxer, which isn’t in line with my normal choice of thong underwear, but I really liked the all day comfort that these offer.

UNB Ryan’s recommendation: I love thong underwear, and until recently I have worn them almost exclusively for the past 15 years or so.  However starting to review underwear over the past few months has given me the opportunity (and encouragement) to try different styles and fabrics.  I have this same suit in the wet look black fabric, and the red fabric feels like a completely different suit due to the difference in fabric.  These are really stretchy, and feel great for all-day wear, whether you’re lounging around the house or following the wife around a shopping mall!

As an underwear reviewer, I shouldn’t be biased to a particular brand, but I LOVE Joe Snyder! They offer styles to appeal to both men and women, which can be used as underwear and swimwear, and they offer cuts from modest to daring.  I love the multitude of fabrics and color choices that Joe Snyder offers, and like that all of their suits accentuate the cheeks.  While I do normally love to wear thongs, I have been branching out recently and have found many trunks and boxer styles offer a cheeky feel reminiscent of a thong or tanga style.  This suit was not entirely out of my comfort zone-I plan to try some brief and jock styles in the future!

I have only worn this pair one day, which was a good test because my wife and I were due to go see a movie and do some shopping afterward.  While watching the movie the pair was very comfortable, and I could hardly even notice them.  They have an almost natural fit that hugs your skin without being overly constrictive.  The pouch holds your package up and is supportive, and is unlined so it keeps you cool all day.  While walking around the mall with my wife these performed the same in that they were hardly even noticeable.  The bulge pouch does add some to your confidence, and depending on how snug your pants are, can even be noticed through a pair of jeans!

This suit was everything I have come to expect from Joe Snyder.  The construction is top-notch, with attention to detail.  All of the elastic is positioned to allow for maximum comfort and doesn’t dig or cut into your skin anywhere.  Also, the leg openings do not have any elastic, so they just follow the contour of your body and are extremely comfortable for long-term wear.  The only thing I don’t care for is the large tag that is present in all of their suits, but it is very easily remedied with a pair of scissors!

Joe Snyder’s line has always had a very consistent fit for me, even between different lines and cuts.  This pair is no exception; in fact, they may even feel a little better than some of the others I have in my collection.  I have this exact same pair in a black “wet look” fabric, and they don’t have near the elasticity that the red fabric has.  These feel great, don’t pull or ride up throughout the day and have just the right amount of give for all-day comfort and support.  This pair has a generously sized pouch that fits your anatomy, and has plenty of room to stretch throughout the day to allow for movement and support.

In conclusion, I was overly satisfied with this review, and will likely continue to wear them.  The quality is nothing short of what Joe Snyder is famous for, and I will continue to support them!  If I had to ask Joe Snyder to change anything about this pair, I would encourage them to design a smaller care tag.  If you like cheeky styles, give these a try, you won’t be disappointed

  1. I’m a big fan of thongs but I’ve never tried a cheeky brief like this. Definitely going to try it out. How’s the support for athletic activity?

      I thought the support was very substantial without being so constricting it was uncomfortable.
