Another pair of Bum Chums for me to try – this time a hipster. I usually stay away from hipsters/trunks/boxer briefs because they always ride up my legs and don’t support the way I like, but I love my BC briefs, so I went in with an open mind.
These were my pair for a short work day and some errands, and I have to say that I liked them from the minute I pulled them on. The fit was right, they had a decent pouch and nice fabric. They also stayed in place really well compared to other trunks I’ve tried, which was a big plus.
Sizing is pretty standard, but they mention that there is a right amount of stretch, so you don’t need to size up. (Fabric is 92% cotton and 8% Elastane) The size chart says a medium fits 32-34, which I would generally say was too big for me as a 31-32, but this pair was just right. If I wanted the fit to be tight, a small would work, but it was nice to have room up front. My biggest complaint with lots of underwear is the lack of room for your package, and since these don’t have an enormous pouch, the medium made up for that.
Overall, another great experience with Bum Chums. I might even be more open to trunks/hipsters after trying theirs. I do have one small complaint, and it’s probably due to my lack of humor, but I don’t love a silly brand name – especially when it’s emblazoned repetitively around my waist. It makes me just a bit self-conscious if my pants ride low or if the band shows when I bend down, etc. Bright colors and patterns are fun, but writing (especially a silly name) just isn’t my thing.
