UNB Ryan’s recommendation: I love thongs, and you can’t get too much closer to wearing one than the cheeky boxer style from Cover Male! I have bought this same suit in the navy and hot pink (my favorite color) variations. These are great for long-term wear, and also for times that you may want to wear a little more than a thong style. I have worn these while doing various activities, and can say without a doubt that they are well suited for anything you want to do in them!
Cover Male is a staple in my underwear drawer. I have several different styles from thongs to boxer briefs, and I love all of them! They offer something for everyone, and I mean everyone. Cover Male provides boxer style underwear for the traditional male mindset, brief styles for the more adventurous, and thong/g-string styles for the wilder side of each of us. This pair of cheeky boxers is much more akin to a thong than a boxer style and is definitely within my comfort zone.
I’ve worn this pair on numerous occasions, from wearing them under my dress slacks at work to wearing them while doing yard work, and they perform each time flawlessly. I don’t find myself feeling to adjust anything or pulling them away from my body but rather forget that I have them on, which is really what should happen when wearing underwear! The fit of this pair is very minimal in that they don’t exaggerate your anatomy in any way, but rather gently accentuate it.
Cover Male’s designs have been very well constructed in my experience. I have never had any issues with seams coming unraveled, elastic stretching out, or fabrics fading or bleeding excessively. All of their designs have adequate elastic to hold everything in place without being so restrictive that they cause discomfort. The leg openings on this pair do not have any elastic, and the feeling you get immediately after pulling them on is evident of the thought that went into the design. You can’t tell they are there at all!
Cover Male’s suits don’t all share the same fit, but these are very true to size. I have found that Cover Male, like many designers, run a little bit on the small side when buying their skimpier suits. The styles that have string sides are typically cut smaller around the waist but will share the same pouch size. The cheeky boxers are pretty safe (in my opinion) to order in your typical preferred size. I haven’t had any issues with these riding up excessively or the leg openings being overly restrictive. I found that the pouch on this pair is very well constructed, and offers generous room and support for your package.
I am certain that I will continue to buy from Cover Male, and in particular, I may take advantage of the sale currently going on and pick these up in a few more colors. I particularly like the camouflage and white colors as my next choices. If I were to make one suggestion to cover male, I would ask them to go back to the fabric care tag found in some of their older styles instead of the screen printed instructions they are using on the newer designs. It’s not so bad on the smaller suits, but for the styles using wider swaths of fabric, they leave an unsightly impression from the outside.
