Howdy folks. This is Phillip here, the new kid in town. Today, I bring you my review of the Joe Snyder Activewear G-String in blue, on of the many cuts available in the new Activewear line, to include the bikini, jock strap, and boxer. Having tried a few different items from Joe Snyder, I was a little apprehensive, as I never have been a huge fan of the brand. However, a pair of underwear never intimidates me, so in I jumped. Upon first glance, I noticed that the fabric was different than the other undies I’ve worn from JS. Made of 80% Polyamide, 20% Elastane, which felt smooth to the touch. The blue color that I received was very attractive looking as well, leading me to believe that the numerous colors and the camo print would look just as great. All in all, I was impressed on first look.
I chose to wear my review pair first thing, without washing. Spent most of the day sitting through classes, so pretty much casual type of environment. I then wore them to work later that evening, which doesn’t require a lot of movement. Once washed, I then took them for a spin at the gym. Overall, I didn’t have any issues while working out, or just sitting and walking, making the Activewear G-String a suitable piece for multiple uses.
I’m a bit of a large guy, in fact, that’s the size I usually wear in most brands. Joe Snyder runs a bit small in their sizing, it seems, cause it felt a little too snug for my personal preference in the waist. The tag reads that a large is 36-39 inches, which fits with the American sizing of a large being 36-38, for the most part, but it was just a little snug on me. I would honestly recommend wearing the next size up from what you normally wear in order to find an accurate fit.
Joe Snyder’s biggest plus, in my opinion, is their availability of colors for their underwear. I love the fact that, instead of the common black, white, red, and blue that you get with most brands, you also have options such as yellow, green, pink, purple, and even mesh, for the Activewear line of products. Everybody needs a bit of color to liven up his top drawer. I will also note that even though I expected it based on past expierence with Joe Snyder thongs, there wasn’t any “grinding”, as I call it, or rubbing of the area right above the crack. I’m also a fan of the waistband type of Gstrings and thongs, so bonus points for me. The biggest issue was that there was “gaping”, or where the fabric in the crotch doesn’t stay on the skin on the sides, instead leaving a little space between the skin and the edge of the underwear.
All in all, the Joe Snyder Activewear G-String was a decent pair of undies. Based on past expierences with this brand, I wasn’t expecting too much, and will say I was surprised to find that I liked them a little more than previous efforts from the company. Is this my all time favorite pair of underwear? Not by a long shot, but I will give credit where credit is due. Enjoyable and comfortable, with an appealing aesthetic that is sure to catch the eye.

Thanks for hearing me out. I’m very into not just undies, but to try and spread the word on whats good and whats not, and I only hope I can help somebody out there avoid a trap I’ve fallen into on more than one occasion. The most important piece of clothing is the underwear the put on first thing, and if I can help make that choice the best for somebody, I’ll consider myself a success. Until next time, this is Speedosoldier85, signing out.
