Review – BoyRio Full Brief

BoyRio is an underwear/swimwear company based in Rio de Janeiro, and you can tell because all of their pieces would look great on a bright sandy beach locale. I got a pair of their Full brief to review. Disguised as a basic pair of briefs, these undies are quite nice to wear, even though you’ll be a little surprised at the fabric.

The fabric blend is a 90% Polyester, 10% Spandex blend. The result is a cool forest green that has a slight luxe sheen to it. The brief is a pouch brief style, with the two-panel pouch inset into the front of the brief with deep brown contrast flatlock stitching. To finish off, the brief has black finishing on the leg holes, and a black elastic at the waist. The only wonky part of the fabrication for me was the taggage; there is a tag at the back center with the size and washing instructions, as well as a little hang tag coming out of the front hip with the brand.

In addition to that, the waist elastic seam (when the elastic is made into a loop) is set at the center front, so they added an additional brand label at the center front. For me, that’s a little too much, but the front two are at least on the outside, so it shouldn’t affect your comfort level. The leg holes are nice and stretchy without being too loose.

What I like about the underwear is it has a nice lifting effect to everything. The pouch isn’t a c-ring style lift, but it does keep everything up front. The elastic in the legs picks the butt up quite nicely. This is a very low rise brief. I would suggest ordering a size up as well, because my regular size is a bit too snug for my comfort.

All in all, a nice sexy brief, design wise, I wouldn’t say it’s anything special, it’s the sexy Rio version of a classic.

 

Pros:

  • Surprisingly nice fabric.
  • Snug pouch.

Cons:

  • Not too special in it’s design.
  • A little excessive on the taggage.
