Pros: Perfect fit, fun design, conservative cut but edgy style
UndiesRock recommendation: If you’re looking for swimmers with a conservative cut. But like edgier, youthful designs then this is all you! I can’t stress how much I love these swimmers, and I know you will. By far my favorite swim brief of 2016, hope you enjoy my review as much as I dig these spot on swimmers
Hey fellow underwear fans. It’s UndiesRock reviewing another unsurprisingly awesome pair of N2N swim briefs. As we start to hit the brakes on summertime. It’s important to have a great pair of transition swimwear to help cruise into the cooler months. These MB3 Milan Sport Swim briefs by N2N are the way to go! First off, let’s take some time to applaud N2N. They debuted some of the coolest and innovative swimwear designs we’ve seen all year. I mean, these Milan swimmers are just impeccable. Grom the sporty, tight, classic full-coverage fit, to the trendy color options and clean stripes. We have ourselves the ultimate sport swim brief.
Ok, we all know that comfort is the ultimate criteria for reaching swim brief nirvana. The comfort meter on these suckers is off the charts. The 83% nylon/17% spandex material allows for liberal stretch with sustainable form. I own a medium sized pair which is made for a 32-34″ waist and it definitely fits true to size. The fit is snug in all the right places but does not restrict or pinch any areas of the body. The fit on the butt is textbook; snug and tight, which doesn’t become baggy when wet. In my experience with other swim briefs, the leg openings tend to be quite tight with little give which then allows for the hem to dig into the skin. This Milan pair does not do this whatsoever! This pair is equipped with an inner draw chord. Which provides the option to conceal the strings so they are not visible. But also allows for unlimited adjustability. Also, one thing that everyone should be aware of is that this swimwear is unlined. So be prepared for some transparency post swim. I personally don’t mind the single layer of material. It allows for almost underwear-like comfort. It can definitely be revealing if you are in public situations. Even though the pouch is single ply. It still retains the right amount of support for the package. but with a little extra freedom of movement. And I cannot stress this enoug. For sure your package will have a little more definition. Which is totally cool.
The design on the MB3 Milan Sport combines a classic cut with an edgy appeal. This swimwear is substantial so if you are looking for a pair that is full coverage. Then these are the ones to purchase. But don’t be fooled by the conservative cut. Because these bad boys are far from mundane. They have so much character with the three-panel, tricolor, gradient, color-block design. That is offered in blue, red, and green (the option I own). The sides of the swim brief are roughly 2.75″ in length providing a mid-rise waist. I cannot write this review without giving a shout-out to the seamless pouch design. As you all know, I am a sucker for seamless fronts because of the clean/sharp aesthetic and added comfort points. So this pair definitely hits the spot in this department. Although the front is seamless, I think it’s important to mention that there are horizontal seams where the colors transition. At first I thought this might bother me. But honestly it didn’t faze me the slightest, but I could see how this could be bothersome to some dudes. N2N can definitely level up with a fully seamless design, but I feel like I’m getting too nitpicky. One aspect of this pair that was a little disappointing to me is that the material tends to wear down rather quickly after just a couple washes. Here is an image to show you what I am talking about:
As you can see the material tends to fray and get pulpy – I don’t know if this is an accurate adjective, but you get the point.
Those who have been following N2N throughout the years know that the brand has legacy cuts that are reissued with different patterns and material each season. But these N2N Milan swim briefs are brand new to the lineup. For this being the first generation, N2N hit a grand slam with these swimmers and I hope these are here to stay! Definitely a huge success of a style. I applaud N2N for these tasteful and flattering simmers. Right now you can catch these directly from the N2N site for $30 large. At this price point this pair is a total steal and a no brainer purchase. You definitely get a whole lot of swim brief for 30 bucks. Which is a small price to pay to turn heads at the beach. Especially when you can easily drop $100 for a decent pair of swim briefs in this day and age. Personally, I haven’t had much of a summer due to my work life. My August is starting to free up. You better believe that I will be out on my paddle board with my girl soaking up the sun and salt in these perfect M83 Milan swim briefs from N2N.
