Low-rise Excites (Xzytes) - A Review

I've mentioned Xzytes a couple times in the past as being a great place to get cheap, fun underwear.  While today I want to review one of their own styles, their low-rise boxerbrief.

As far as the fit of this thing goes, it's decidedly very skimpy - no question about it.  You are definitely going to want to size up on these (if you normally wear a small get a medium) because they are super small and tight.  I normally wear a small and I can barely fit all my junk into the medium.  Consult their size chart for information, although I'm a 28 inch waist and I'm pretty sure that this medium would not fit someone with a 33 inch waist.  So size accordingly. These undies are super small and low-rise, they are not nearly large enough to be considered a boxerbrief.  They barely cover my ass-crack and some of my cheeks hang out the bottom.  Guys with bubble butts beware, these are not going to cover you in the least.  They also have a tendency to conform to your body and the center seam in the back rides right up your butt.  The front is super tiny with barely any extra room in the pouch - try not to get hard because there's no room.  The cut is super sexy and when they say super-low-rise, they mean it.  

As far as the comfort of these things goes it's a little varied.  The nylon/lycra blend is surprisingly smooth and not itchy as you might expect.  It is very light-weight and quick-drying - perfect for a hot summer day or a hot night in the club.  The fit, however, hinders the comfort.  While I feel adequately supported, at times I almost feel squashed - especially when you first put these things on.  The center seam, however, often makes it feel like you're wearing a thong even though you're not.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's worth pointing out.  After a little getting used to them though they feel a little better.  But I find myself wanting to pull them up to cover my crack.  But if you pull them up your cheeks hang out, and when you pull them down your crack hangs out.  So it's hard to win.  But if that's what you're going for these are perfect for you. 

That being said, the style of these SCREAMS go-go boy and would be the perfect skimpy pair to wear in the club.  They're really about showing off, but without looking like you're trying too hard.  Their skimpy coverage looks sexy, but not vulgar.  And the subtle sheen of the fabric would look great under the disco ball.  Bring on the dancing!  But for everyday wear, these probably aren't the thing.  

These undies are currently on sale at Xzytes for only $10 (originally $20).  That's definitely a steal - you can get two for the price of one!  The quality of these is quite exceptional and will certainly hold up to a lot of bumping and grinding.  

Overall, I give the Xyztes Boxerbrief a total score of 7 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 8 (out of 10) - Super skimpy, not really a boxerbrief  Does not cover it all at once - you have to choose between your crack and your cheeks.  Runs small - make sure to size-up from your normal size. 
COMFORT -- 7 (out of 10) - Fabric is surprisingly soft.  Don't feel covered due to the fit.  Requires adjusting.  No room to grow. 
STYLE -- 5 (out of 10) as underwear; 9 (out of 10) as clubwear - Sexy and hot.  Feels more like clubwear than underwear though. 
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10) - Well made. Holds up well. 
VALUE -- 10 (out of 10) - Great deal for $10.  Great for summer fun.

I would like to make a comment about these Xyztes low boxers. From my point of view I find them to be extremely comfortable. The back seam snuggles comfortably between my arse crack, without any discomfort. The depth of them means that although they are low cut, they do not slip down so low that they tend to slide off! The front has a small pouch effect, which is certainly able to accomodate me, and I am sure would accomodate the average endowned person. Overall, I would give them a 9 out of 10.
I hope that some find this helpful.
