Jockstrap Junkie recommendation: If you like meat, add some “prime beef” to your underwear drawer. All puns intended.
As a junkie of underwear, especially jockstraps, and also have a bit of humor in my personality, I purchased the Meat Classic Jockstraps purely for the novelty value. The waistband has “Meat” on the front and “Prime Beef” on the back of the waistband. The writing makes for a fun conversation jockstrap. I did take a gamble with sizing on this jockstrap, which I will discuss a bit later in this review; otherwise, this jock didn’t disappoint on the novelty factors.
Per my usual routine, I give a jockstrap an all-around wearing. I’m not a fan for wearing the Meat Classic Jockstrap for working out. My beef is that the pouch doesn’t breathe well due to the double lining. One of my main reasons for wearing a jock is for breathability. However, the pouch is very comfortable, has ample support, keeps form, and I would wear for a night out, lounging around, or every day.
For a novelty brand, I was expecting the quality to be “choice” however, Meat Underwear came thru, and “prime” is what I got. This was a pleasant surprise. The nylon/Spandex blend makes for a nice smooth finish on the pouch, the waistband is a soft material, and the leg straps don’t cut into the rump or hammies. I would describe the silhouette of this jock as a classic cut where the leg straps connect to the waistband at the hip, and the pouch covers the sausage & meatballs. Pouch support is pretty standard, no extra lift features, and the double finish seam creates a nice finish both inside and outside of the pouch.
Leg straps 1.”
Material 86% Nylon
Pouch Double Lined
Sizes S/M 28″ – 34″
L/XL 36″ – 42″
Here’s where I gambled and lost on the first try. With the sizing of S/M is 28″ – 34″, I thought I’d try the S/M as I have a 34″ waist. I was wrong as the sizing is close to the lower end of the range; therefore, my second order was the L/XL, and they do fit like I would expect a large waist jockstrap to fit. Guys on the XL spectrum, you will probably have problems with these jockstraps running too small.
If you like a bit of fun in your underwear drawer, get you some Meat! Whether your lean or a bit more marbled, these will definitely be a fun conversation piece. Life is meant to be fun, so go for it!
