I love when a pair of undies can be used for multiple purposes. Like wearing a jockstrap for the fun and sexiness but yet have it be functional at the gym. I had the opportunity to review a pair of undies that I would not only wear everyday under a pair of jeans. But wouldn’t mind laying out by the pool in these guys either.
I had the opportunity to review the 2(x)ist Black Light SLIQ micro truck in a size medium. I have to admit, I was a little confused when I first opened these up. They looks like a sexy pair of square cut trunks and heading into winter. I was a little concerned that I wasn’t going to be able to give these a fair review. But as soon as I took them out of the package and tried them on, I was SOLD. The fit is amazing, the fabric is amazing, the overall construction is amazing. These are just an all-around great pair of undies.
The fabric on these is a 88% polyester 12% spandex blend. The polyester gives them a little bit of a sheer look to them. Which is what made me think they were swimwear when I first got them. The spandex adds for a great amount of stretch and movement. This fabric is lightweight but yet seems very tough and would hold up to even the craziest gym workout. They design of this trunk is very minimalist with a screen printed logo on the left hip and pattern on the fabric extends all the way up through the waistband. The inside of the waistband has a great logo design and also is very soft. The pouch is great as well. It roomy and I had no issues with feeling cramped at all during the day. The low-rise cut is awesome and fit perfectly below the hip, right where a good pair of trunks should!
The color/pattern is kind of hard to describe, but it wouldn’t be my first chose. It is a very random almost “tie-dye” look to it. I wasn’t a huge fan of it, at first but it is growing on me for sure.
- Great fit and true to size
- Great construction and attention to detail
- Great fabric for everyday wear, stayed in place all day!
- Not a big fan of the color. These look great but would love to see more pattern options.
