If you are like me you’re on the constant lookout for bikinis. Which, luckily, the style is becoming easier and easier to find. More brands are starting to produce the style. One of those brands is Candyman. They have always had smaller cuts like bikinis and thongs. And sometimes even more briefer cuts! The first collection of Candyman for 2018 is out!

There are a few really great styles but there are six new bikinis that I think need special attention! Looking at the style you can see it’s a low cut, no-fly, smaller waistband and fullback. Our friend Bikinisnthongs I think would approve of us calling these bikinis. If you have been a long time reader of UNB, you know that Candyman is all about fun. These are no regular bikinis they have some great prints!

The Candyman Frosting Bikini – has a floral print. It made me do a double take to see if it was swimwear. From what I gather it’s underwear. The print is awesome and fun. The blue background makes this my favorite of the six. Underwear should be fun and this would make me happy to wear!

Candyman Cheetah Bikini – If you are a fan of animal prints you ay love the cheetah bikini. This has a solid black front with a cheetah face on the back. It’s kind of a surprise! But still is a lot of fun.

Candyman Pineapple Bikini – If the Frosting Bikini is a little much but you love floral prints. The Pineapple Bikini could be a big hit for you. It’s a pineapple print on a solid black background.

Candyman Hands Bikini – This is the most fun pair of the new collection. The hand’s bikini is a black bikini with two handprints on the back. It’s like someone had paint on their hands and grabbed your butt. I could see me wearing this on a date night and asking, hey did you put your hands there!

Candyman Lion Bikini – Just like the Cheetah bikini this is a black front with a lion face on the back! It’s definitely not your regular bikini print.

Candyman Kitty Bikini – Lastly is the Kitty Bikini. If you are a cat fan you can have underwear with a cat face on the back. Not a big game cat but a regular cat!

If you love these and want to see more Candyman go to Candyman Fashions. 

Have you tried Nylon underwear or are you a big fan that can’t find it? Back in the 80’s there were plenty of brands making nylon underwear. Bikinis and briefs were easy to find. Mix the fabric with bright colors and it was a winning combination. Then we moved into the 90’s and we entered the world of black, white, or grey. On top of that was the introduction of the boxer brief. Most mainstream undies moved in this direction. This made many of the nylon underwear companies without a market. They either changed their business model or went out of business.

Over the last 10 years or so I have seen more companies producing the old standard nylon undies. They have a sub “fetish” group under men’s undies that love these styles. I hate to call it a fetish, I should say preference. Before you run out and get some nylon undies there are some things you need to know. If you’ve never worn them, first thing is they aren’t stretchy. If you’re used to spandex and such, these don’t have that much give. Also, they aren’t super body hugging. Which is not always a bad thing. I prefer the brief or bikini cut in Nylon. It sorta creates a pouch out of the fabric that gives you support.

One company that has been around since 1994 is still making these undies. That company is JG2. This is how they describe themselves. They “address a market segment that most designers and manufacturers of men’s underwear routinely ignored, treated as a fashion fetish, or relegated to novelty status. That market segment is: men’s nylon underwear”

They currently offer bikinis, thongs, and boxer (well boxer briefs). The colors are more on the pastel side but I think it really works with the pairs they offer. The pricing is around $15 a pair. I am going to reach out to the brand and find out more info about them. I just wanted to pass this along to you guys who love nylon undies and can’t find them! Shop JG2.
