Obviously Sinuous - A Review

The bikini brief is a great choice for the summer.  Also known as the sports brief or tanga, the bikini brief allows for airflow and movement - perfect for sports and hot summer days.  Today I'm going to review Obviously's version of the bikini brief from their Sinuous collection

These bikini briefs are fitted true to size.  They are an ultra low-rise that is just barely decent.  The trick to these is that there is no fabric sides to the undies, they are just a strip of fabric that stretches from front to back.  The sides are completely open with just a waistband running across.  This means that the pouch makes up the entire front of the undies.  The back is what I would call a three-quarters coverage, it is not quite full coverage but it still covers.  The pouch is what Obviously calls "anatomically correct".  Basically what this means is it is a separate pocket that allows your manhood to hang freely as nature intended.  No pulling it tight against the rest of your body.  On other styles of underwear, like the boxerbrief, I found this pocket to be a little too disconnected and made it a little hard to fit comfortably in some pants.  But since this special pouch makes up most of the front, it still holds you close enough to the body to give support while letting you hang free at the same time.  

The fabric used in the sinuous collection is oh-so-soft and smooth.  It is really comfortable to wear.  It conforms to your body in just the right ways for a snug fit that isn't too tight.  The waistband is very soft, you don't even know it's there.  And the legbands?  Well they are non-existent so there is no discomfort there. The minimal coverage of this underwear and the soft fabric makes these a perfect choice for daily wear, especially in the summer. 

These undies are not for the self-conscious, but they could definitely flatter those with a less-than-perfect body.  The cut is fashion-forward and daring.  There is a stylish screen-print swirl pattern on the butt of the underwear.  They come in three bright colors (lime green, teal, and charcoal) that are not for the faint of heart. They are very flashy and bold, while still remaining modest and covering all your man parts.  If your friends see these, they'll know you have style.  

As for the quality of these undies, I am surprisingly impressed.  My past experience with Obviously (and as many of you have pointed out as well) has been that the quality of the fabric is a little flimsy and doesn't hold up well after multiple washings.  But they seem to have remedied these problems with their latest lines.  Are they worth it?  The Obviously bikini briefs normally retail for around $26, but they are currently on sale for $18.  With the quality and style of these things, I'd say they're a good bargain even at 26 bucks.  But for 18?  You'd be a fool not to pass these up. 

Overall, I give the Obviously Sinuous Bikini Brief a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9 (out of 10) - Low-rise, minimal coverage.  Anatomically correct pouch. 
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10) - Soft fabric.  Minimal coverage makes them perfect summer wear. 
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10) - Screams style. 
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10) - Well made.  Much better than previous versions. 
VALUE -- 9 (out of 10) - Good value, and the sale makes them an even better deal.
