UNB Ryan’s recommendation: I love thongs and jump at any chance to check out a new style or designer. The way that this pair is constructed is unique in that it incorporates a see-through mesh front panel. I wasn’t sure about the see-through aspect at first (I know I’ll wear a thong on the beach in front of anybody but see-through underwear???) but ended up liking it just fine. The mesh used for the see-through feature is really soft, unlike some mesh features I have worn in the past. It may cause me to branch out a bit more in my fabric selections in the future.
I have not previously worn anything from Daddy Underwear, not for any particular reason but simply because there are so many different brands and styles out there. It’s hard to pick a new brand or style (hopefully the reason you are reading this article). The pair I am reviewing today is the Daddy Underwear Thong and was provided for review by Mensuas. I usually stray away from anything with a mesh design because I don’t like the way it feels against my skin, but these are surprisingly comfy. This suit was a tiny bit outside of my comfort zone for two reasons. First, the mesh panel is not something that I would typically like. Next, the front pouch is a more traditional, wider pouch that I am accustomed to it is not a bulge pouch that is my go-to pouch style. The cut, however, is very well suited for long-term wear, and is very comfortable! The mesh fabric insert also feels very soft which was a surprise for me as I have had some mesh styles in the past that were very uncomfortable.
As the Mid-Atlantic has been faced with the threat of Hurricane Florence over the past week, I have had the opportunity to wear this pair around the house while lounging, binge watching Ozark on Netflix, and I may have snuck outside for a few minutes in them to grill some burgers. The pouch design on this pair is pretty traditional, with the exception of the mesh panel insert. The pouch is a flat front design with a small forward dart, so they have plenty of room for all day wear with minimal adjustment. Another design feature is the two-tone pattern which features brightly colored solids paired with a mesh insert of the same color, with a contrasting color band. The waistband is 3/4’” and constructed of the same Nylon/Spandex blend as the rest of the underwear. The final design feature is a black panel insert on the front which does a nice job of transitioning into the mesh pouch and highlighting your package.
As far as I can tell, Daddy Underwear has done an outstanding job in the construction of this pair. If I had to point out one thing that I disliked about this pair I would say the same thing that I do with all thongs-smaller tags! I have thoroughly enjoyed wearing this pair over the last week, and will continue to keep it in my rotation. The cut of this pair is conservative, and could be worn under a pair of dress slacks without any concern of drawing additional attention, that is until you get undressed and want more attention. The see through detail on this pair will surely incite attention wherever you choose to show them off!
I don’t have any experience with the Daddy brand of underwear to compare this style and size too. Mensuas provided this pair in a size medium, which isn’t my typical size, but I’ll say that they are probably pretty true to size based on my experience with other brands and styles in the industry. If I were to buy another pair, I would definitely size down to my normal size.
In conclusion, I have been pleasantly surprised with this pair and will look more into Daddy Underwear and their new offerings. I would love to see more color options, and maybe see a bulge style pouch introduced, but overall the brand is delivering a sold product at a very low price point that should be affordable for everyone. Give Daddy Underwear a try and let us know in the comments below what you think. You can also send me a message or question directly on Instagram or Twitter @unb_ryan . I look forward to hearing from you soon!
