Lately, there’s been some talk on this site about lace underwear. I’ve never tried any, but the idea always intrigued me. I feel like I’m pretty open to trying new things with underwear and lace was no different. So when Andrew Christian debuted a line of lace and I was asked if I wanted to review a pair I jumped right in. This was my first time wearing lace, and as far as I know, the first line of lace from Andrew Christian. All I can say is what took us so long?!
I received the lace brief, but there’s also a thong and singlet available. They’re all constructed in black floral lace. Other than the black waistband with the signature ‘Andrew Christian’ logo in metallic silver this brief is constructed entirely of lace. Hold it up to the light and you get the full effect of the stunning lace design. There’s no lining or double layer anywhere. This means everything that contacts your body gets that awesome lace feel. And that feel is a huge plus when it comes to lace. This isn’t a cheap, scratchy lace material. It feels great against your body and has a nice stretch to it. The logo waistband and the pouch give no doubt that this is men’s underwear. I know some guys get hung up thinking lace looks like or can be confused with girls panties, but there’s nothing to worry about with these.
I wore the brief to work which included a lot of desk work. The beauty is I wore it with jeans and boots. The contrast of a masculine look on the outside and a lace brief on the inside was an exhilarating feeling all day. And the way I could feel the lace move against my butt reminded me that this was a special pair. Just wearing lace gave me a huge confidence boost, but feeling it against my skin was also a great bonus.
I’m about a 32-33 waist, and I got these in a medium. The lace has some stretch to it but not nearly as much as some rayon or bamboo blends. You may want to consider sizing up, especially since the pouch on this was just a tad on the snug size.
I was super excited to get my first pair of lace and you should too! In fact, I just ordered another pair. There’s no reason why guys shouldn’t experience the rush of excitement and feel of the fabric all day long. Knowing that I was wearing such a risqué pair made it that much hotter. If you’re on this site, you owe it to yourself to try a pair.
