Review: Gigo Jockstrap
The perfect weather is when it gets warmer because the warmer it gets, the less clothes I have to wear. And, it’s obviously the perfect weather for a jock! That being said, I want to tell you about a very bold jock I recently had the opportunity to review. It is the Gigo jockstrap. Gigo is a brand from Brazil. They have bold and unique patterns and just the right amount of style. I will admit from a personal perspective that the pouches of the jocks are a bit loud and bold for me. Some of these patterns, however, I do like.
The first thing you should know about this jock as well as the whole line of briefs, boxers, and thongs from Gigo is that the sizes run small. This should always be kept in mind when making your purchase. Because of my “junk in the trunk” build and pouch requirements, I had to go with an extra large. At first, I was skeptical. As I was putting the jock on, I was thinking, “This isn’t going to fit!” After getting it on and realizing that it is meant to have a very low cut look, I decided to give it a try. I was also hesitant about the leg straps as they are a bit wider than I am used to. I gave the jock the benefit of the doubt and wore it for the day. The jock was very comfortable to my amazement. It wasn’t too tight or loose. It rode low on my waist but wasn’t uncomfortable. The pouch material wasn’t binding at all which is a necessity of mine. More room in the pouch would have been preferred. The waistband, leg straps, and pouch were soft and comfortable. The pouch itself was breathable and form fitting. I would say this jock is well put together. Once again, I have to say for the most part, Gigo underwear uses a smaller size scale and bigger guys like myself need to think about sizing-up from what you normally buy.
I love the look of Gigo because of it’s boldness and uniqueness. It has a large assortment of patterns from bold to exotic that should satisfy anyone’s tastes. I wore the jock all day and found it to be comfortable overall. I did not, however, get the opportunity to wear the jock to the gym. Based on the style and patterns, I would say this is more of a fashion jock than a workout jock. But, then again, who am I to judge what you wear under your gym shorts. Wear what you love because that is all that matters!
To sum up my review, I think the Gigo jockstrap is an exotic and bold jock with a lot of attitude. I give it an overall rating of 4.6 on a scale of 5. This is based on the fact that the overall sizing runs small and the pouch, at least for me, could have used a bit more room.
