Intymen's Embossment Boxer - A Review

Today I'd like to introduce you to a new brand of underwear with a little review.  This brand is called Intymen.  Intymen is quite new and currently does not have its own e-commerce site, but you can get their stuff at many different online stores, including: International Jock, Skivvies, Wyzman, and more.  Intymen is known for their super sexy underwear.  I like their stuff because while it is quite sexy, it is never vulgar.  Today I'd like to start by giving you a little review of their Embossment Boxer in black.  I included this piece in my holiday buying guide, so I figured I should tell you what I think of it.   

The fit of these boxers is like a trunk.  They are fairly low-rise, with enough fabric to cover all the essential bits in the front and the back.  The legs are a little higher than the pouch.  There are limited seams on these with one on either side of the contour pouch and a third seam in the center of the butt.  This makes for a very streamlined and clean-looking fit.  The front pouch is lightly padded for extra comfort and shape as well as to make the semi-sheer fabric opaque.  

This trunk is surprisingly comfortable, especially considering that the fabric is 87% polyamide and 13% spandex.  This makes for a very light-weight fabric that feels great against the skin.  The fabric moves well with you and doesn't bunch up or get out of place due to the smart placement of the seams.  Usually I'm suspect of center rear seams as they often just make you feel like you're wearing an overly tight thong.  But this center seam works well and doesn't ride too tight.  I'm also usually not a fan of padded pouches as I feel they generally look fake and feel stiff.  But this pouch is actually surprisingly comfortable and only enhances slightly making your bulge look its best but still look believable. 

The style of these undies is refined and subtle.  The fabric has a very subtle pattern of stripes and flowers that are semi-sheer.  But the tone on tone design only shows when the light hits it right or when it is super stretched out (say if you bend over or something).  The design of the fabric is a nice, luxurious touch.  They feel super sexy without showing it all.  And as I explained, the lightly padded contour pouch ensures that your front assets will remain covered no matter how much they stretch things out.  The waistband is also very subtle with a tone-on-tone "Intymen" logo repeating around the top.  The only real flashy thing about these is a small foil Intymen logo on the left hip.  In addition to black, these undies also come in white and grey.  

These trunks from Intymen are excellent quality.  Often lightweight fabric like this can get "pilly" or gross looking after a number of washings.  But these undies hold their own in the washer.  Make sure you line dry them though.  These undies are super sexy without being vulgar and you can get them at a price that won't break the bank.  My only real complaint about these undies is that the padded pouch prevents them from being folded easily for storage.  Their suggested retail price is $25, but they are sold at a number of places for less.  But at $25 for the pair, they are definitely a worthwhile investment as they'll last you well.  Intymen does not actually have an online store at this time so you have to rely on other retailers to get their goods.  Wyzman sells the Embossment Boxer for $24.99.  Skivvies is currently offering the best deal with 25% off making these undies only $18.75. 

MY RATING:
Overall, I give the Intymen Embossment Boxer a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9 (out of 10) - Sexy and small.  Minimal coverage while still being a boxer. 
COMFORT -- 9 (out of 10) - Lightweight fabric that moves with you.  Well-placed seams for comfort.  Padded pouch. 
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10) - Sexy but subtle - refined. 
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10) - Good quality.  Will last well. 
VALUE -- 9 (out of 10) - Good price for sexy underwear.

Pitty it's padded. I refuse to wear padded underwear.
They would otherwise have been a great buy!

Jay, I usually feel that way too. I was skeptical at first. But this thing is very slightly padded. You really don't even notice it. If you have the spare money I'd give it a try and see what you think.

I found these on sale at Untied-U.com. They had free shipping available and rewards points.

Thanks for the tip. I've actually never heard of this site before. Did you buy them from them? How was your experience?
