This is my second review of Pikante this week. I will say Pikante is becoming one of my favorite underwear companies. The pair I am reviewing is the 9220 Jockbrief. This isn’t so much of a jockbrief as a jock bikini. It’s a smaller cut then usual jock briefs from other brands. I have one other jock brief and a pair of boxer briefs from Pikante. The other jock brief has a great fit and I hoped this one was going to have a simlar fit.
The Pikante 9220 Jock brief is available in four colors. Those are white, red, blue and black. Each pair has a contrasting trim around the waist, legs and back openings. Made out of 94% Cotton, 6% Spandex blend fabric. Which felt good through out the day. The waistband is a smaller waistband that had me worried if it would hold up through out the day.
I wore this pair to work and when I first slid the pair on on it made me feel a bit naughty. I haven’t had too many jock briefs and the opening in the back, didn’t feel odd but felt nice and did I say naughty because everything was hanging out! The waistband issue I mentioned above didn’t cause problems. It held me up as I ran around work and did some errands. I received the red with black trim. I loved the color combination
Sizing in Pikante is pretty well matched to the sizing chart. I received an XL and it fit my 36-waist fine. This is definitely smaller then typical US sizing but if you follow the chart listed on websites you shouldn’t have a problem getting the right fit.
Some things I liked were the smaller size of the brief. It fit me just right and felt great through out the day. Next, I love the color combination with the trim. They could have made it a solid color but added a bit of pop. My suggestion for improvement is minor. The Cotton/Spandex blend felt great but I’d love to see this with a nylon/spandex blend. Some other pairs I have with this blend just fit so well. The nylon/spandex could make it more form fitting.
