Jockey String Bikini Review

A few weeks ago I got a few new Jockey brand underwear so I'll be doing a few reviews in the coming weeks. My first review is for Jockey's Elance String Bikinis.

These undies are great from the start, not only are they affordable but they come in a great two pack which gives you even more bang for the buck. I'll admit for several years I haven't been a big fan of the string bikini/sport brief style underwear. The fabric on the butt seems to always ride up on the other brands I've tried. But the Jockey's were different, these never moved nor came out of place, instead staying perfectly in line. I have found that I like string bikinis for running and other activities when you're feeling a little more coverage than a jock. This style allows full leg movement, yet keeps everything in its proper place.

Speaking of staying in line, lets talk a bit about the construction of the strings. The strings start with a wide waist band that rides below the waist. The fabric that the strings are made of is a thick but breathable cotton, which has stood up great to repeated washings. They feature a lined front and a single layer back. The strings have a great construction that will last no matter what you do in them.

The overall look of the undies is superior to other brands I've had in the past. I like that these are thicker than others and have a very clean look to them. While string bikinis may not be as sexy as a nice g-string or jock, they certainly offer their fair share of sexiness. I would recommend these to athletic people, and really anyone who likes briefs but likes to spice it up a bit.

Overall, I give the Jockey Elance string bikinis a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:

FIT -- 9 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 9 (out of 10) states:
Comfort meets modern design for a masterpiece combination worth trying. As soft as your favorite bed sheets, this string bikini feels irresistibly smooth against your skin. Minimum coverage front with full coverage back. Made for the daring man with the ultimate sense of style, this string bikini is sure to fit like a glove.

Guest Review: S Brief

Please join me in welcoming our new guest reviewer Alex B.  Here's a bit about him in his own words.
I am a 22 year old college student, majoring in non-profit administration, who lives in Olympia, WA. I am at my last year of school and can't wait to be done. I also work for a non-profit so I don't have much time left but when I do I like to road bike and hang out. My favorite underwear is the aussieBum Cool Jock.

Today he will be reviewing the S-brief from Jameswinston.  I personally disagree with him on a few points, so look for my upcoming review of the S-brief for some point and counterpoint.  Here's Alex's review:
The timing for this review isn’t great, now that Jameswinston is telling us they are selling out, but I guess it will give you some insight into what you are missing out on, or a reminder for you to get a pair before it’s too late.

The S-brief, a new design in underwear, is super soft and looks wonderful while being worn, but lack my support in a few areas.

I’ll give you the good news first, when I first pulled these bad boys on the first thing I noticed was they didn’t hug or feel snug-- they felt almost loose, but they weren’t. They are very well fit and have a great fabric (rib 92% elastance 8%); however, they also lack elastic anywhere except the waistband. The next thing I noticed was how sexy they look on. They cover a little more then a normal brief but aren’t quite a trunk or boxerbrief. The s-brief is a whole new style and a great one at that. The red piping on mine added to it’s hotness factor. The S-brief with its plain waistband, except for an offset logo on the front and the Jameswinston Co. logo on the back, makes them look good under jeans too. These briefs are comfy and hot, but in reality they don’t last a day in my book.

Because they didn’t hug the body or have elastic around the legs, the s-brief doesn’t do much in the way of keeping your package in place. If I tried to run, skateboard, or really move at more then a walking pace I found that I would soon be “hanging out” the leg of these briefs. Trying to get your boys back in your undies without be noticed is not an easy task. The general lack of support from these is my biggest complaint. They are so soft and light that they would make a great workout brief and I wish I could wear them to the gym, but I don’t want to be readjusting every five minutes.

All in all, the S-brief is comfy and a great pair of undies for lounging around in, or great if you have a desk job. For an active lifestyle they just don’t fit the bill (or bulge). If you want something to sleep in or lay around in on Sunday mornings while still looking sexy hurry up and pick these guys up before they are all gone. 

Overall, I give the Jameswinston Co. S-brief a total score of 8.5 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 7 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 9 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10)

********** 8.5

And be on the lookout for my review of the Jameswinston S-Brief. And for those of you who are wondering, yes that is Alex B in the photos.

S-brief running low

I just wanted to pass on some news from the folks at Jameswinston Co.  The S-brief is close to selling out!!  If you have not yet tried them and want to, this may be your last chance to get them.  The S-brief was made in limited quantities and may never be made again.  So don't miss out.  If you're at all interested head over to Jameswinston and buy.  Even though I have not yet done an official review on these things, I've got to tell you they are worth buying!  I love them!
