If you know me, you know that I love trying new brands and styles of underwear. I am pretty open minded and will always try something at least once. When I found out that I was getting a pair of Nukleus briefs to review (furnished by Underwear Concept) I was ecstatic. Nukleus is one of the companies that are not out to make a quick buck or get famous from producing undies. They pride themselves on one simple though. “To create everyday solutions for amazing people – our customers.” When I read this on their website, I though, WOW here is a company that really gets their customers. On top of having a great branding strategy (sorry the marketing major got the best of me their) they also create undies “Using innovative and sustainable production methods. we make underwear and basics from eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, Lenzing Tencel and organic bamboo.” Which I find very awesome! Undies for the betterment of the planet, sign me up!
I had the opportunity to review the Nukleus Nicobar Minis R brief, in a size medium. These undies look amazing and are super comfortable. The green color scheme is very earthy and I think is a great representation of their brand. These undies are made from 95% organic bamboo and 5% spandex. If you have never worn anything made with bamboo fiber you are missing out. This fabric is amazing. It is very light weight but durable and the spandex makes it very stretchy so these undies move with you all day. The construction is very traditional when it comes to a brief. The legs are not cut to high and the pouch is very roomy with and they have plenty of coverage around the back. I wear a 32 inch waist and the mediums fit perfect.
I really like the waistband as well. It is a two-tone elastic logo waistband with a very soft feel to the inside. I love wearing these for just about any occasion. I have worn them to work as well as to the gym and have never had any issue with them. The bamboo offers a nice organic anti-microbial element which makes these a great pair of gym undies.
