Review – Bum-Chums Sneak Peek Hip Brief
The saying usually goes ‘Now you see it, now you don’t’ … but the Bum Chums Sneak Peek briefs let others see it all day long! This particular pair comes in black and features mesh-body brief with their signature, logo waistband. The Waistband is elastane, while the body of the brief is made of nylon and lycra.
I tossed these briefs into my gym bag, knowing that I would be heading out straight from the gym that night for and event before a late dinner. Upon first inspection, I noticed that the rise was slightly lower than a previous pair of Bum Chums I had reviewed a week or two prior. I preferred this lower rise, and also how thin and light the fabric was, fitting nicely under my ‘straight from the dryer’ jeans that night! I always enjoy knowing that I have a fun secret under it all!
Who couldn’t resist a pair of mesh briefs? Especially in a black basic cut like this particular pair! The briefs were quite comfortable, with a soft waistband and elastic trip. I really enjoyed the fact that these had a single-layered pouch; I have noticed that many brand double layer the front of mesh briefs for some reason or another. There is a center seam that runs down the front of the pouch, while the rear is constructed of a single piece. The cut of the brief accentuated my assets quite nicely, however, the pouch didn’t have much of a contour to it, squishing my ‘gents’ quite close to my body … This didn’t look right, I have come to find that for a mesh brief to achieve a certain level of ‘sex appeal,’ they have to have more of a pouch to properly present things up and out, as opposed to compressing them.
Like with all Bum Chums, my only real complaint it the large tag fixed to the outside of the wait band on most of their garments. This tag is far too large, and doesn’t have much of a purpose other than carrying a logo. There is a size and care tag sticker fixed to the inside of the waistband, which is meant to be removed before use, however, I am the first to forget such instructions. The pouch was also not quite roomy enough.
