Underfit Microfiber Boxer Briefs Review

Underfit Microfiber Boxer Briefs Review

Buy it on Amazon: Underfit Microfiber Boxer Briefs [Affiliate Link]

Takeaway: Silky smooth, lightweight, comfy, quick drying and breathable; nice for workouts and sports.

The boxer briefs are made of 87.8% Tactel and 12.2% lycra, similar to athletic and activewear like yoga pants and biking shorts. It is a soft, silky, almost slippery material in feel and also super stretchy but sheer when stretched. Inside the crotch pouch is a second privacy layer made of soft, opaque cotton. The back of the boxers is flat with no contours and the waist band is a narrow 3/4” band that’s a bit stiff and rubbery like a big rubber band but it is thin. The same elastic is found at the cuff of each leg.

I ordered the S size and found that it fits fine on my 28” waist. They look very much like cycling shorts in style but are cut a bit shorter and the material is thinner. As such they are pretty form fitting. The legs cutoff an inch below the crotch and are snug against the thigh. The waist band is comfortable and feels barely there because it is so narrow. There are no rough edges or scratchy seams anywhere on the garment. The material is soft, lightweight, and smooth against the skin with very little friction and heat generated during physical activity like working out. They also stay cool and dry more quickly than cotton boxers. However, because it is nylon based, you can’t tumble dry, bleach or iron them. Overall, I like these briefs for their comfort, fit, and material properties.

Okany Cotton Striped Boxer Briefs Review

Okany Cotton Striped Boxer Briefs Review

Buy it on Amazon: Okany Cotton Striped Boxer Briefs [Affiliate Link]

Takeaway: Soft, comfortable, & breathable, nice style/colors, conservative fit, has pass-thru fly.

In the assorted stripe pack you’ll receive a red/black, black/yellow, blue/white, and a black/white pair. The material is a 95/5% cotton-spandex blend that is not only soft but also a bit stretchy. The 1” elastic band on top is firm but has a good amount of elasticity. Around each leg cuff is a band with a little bit of elastic as well. The boxers have a pass-through fly and the opening is accented with contrasting fabric. One the pairs with the thinner stripes, the contrast material is slightly thinner and more breathable. That same fabric is used between the back and front panels for better airflow for that area which tends to get sweaty. The back of the boxers is plain without any contouring. The pairs with the wider stripes don’t have the thin fabric at the fly, but do use it between the front and back panels. Instead the fly is accented and contrasted with the thinner stripe fabrics. One pair did have a small tear in the fabric it out of the packaging, but when I let the seller know they sent out an undamaged replacement immediately.

I ordered the size large and it fits my 28” waist fine. It’s not snug nor loose at all. While not as form fitting as other boxer briefs I’ve worn it is still comfortable. The look is conservative, revealing little and in terms of leg length reaches about halfway down my thighs. The front pouch is roomy and the fly opening was easy to use. The elastic is comfortable at the waist and the legs held well at the cuffs as well. The contrast patch in the fly adds a pop of color and visual interest as does the strip of fabric at the inner thighs, so while you're not showing a lot of skin, you can still show off your cool underwear. Overall these boxers briefs feel soft against the skin, are comfortable to wear, and nicely constructed.

It's been 6 weeks since my last update and I took a short 2 week break from the helmet when I went on vacation because I didn't feel comfortable packing the helmet in my luggage. However, I continued to use the supp, serum, and shampoo during my trip. I'm starting to see fine/short hairs growing in along my hairline which weren't there before I started using the helmet and other products. They're about 1/2" long now and I'll keep an eye on them to see if they fill in more over time. My hair texture is coarser and thicker than before and my hair feels stronger than when I started/not as brittle. There's a lot less shedding in general from grooming activities like combing my hair and washing it. I also don't feel as self conscious after my most recent hair cut because I don't see it revealing as much scalp as before. That's all for now, I'll see you in another 4-6 weeks!
