In this review, we will take a deep dive look at one of BodyAware’s recent releases – the Iridescent Brief. Upon receiving one of their email alerts regarding a new product, I saw and fell in love with these briefs the moment I scrolled up and laid eyes on them. I knew I had to try them even though normally I shy away from the type of material these looked to be made of. The reason being is that in my years of loving underwear these types of underwear tend to look really good, but outside the bedroom forget it. I have had pairs you can hear while walking in the office as well as pairs that just felt like it was a cast. That said, when I saw the ruched back I was sold. Anything that draws attention to the rear is meant for me so I decided to take the plunge and bought both silver and purple, just in case I did love them and my size sold out – I have learned you can never be too careful lol!

- The ruched back gives your assets a life even if you sit for a living
- The metallic sheen is sure to get you noticed
- Great for lounging and tanning
- Front pouch has extra fabric that sags
- Tends to sit low and slide down if you are being too active
- Small frays have already started showing
If you are looking for something to show off in or draw attention then look no further. If you want to get aboard the ruched trend express then jump on. If you want a pair that answers those needs and can be your go-to for the chores, look elsewhere.
As you may already be aware, the obsession I have with BodyAware is very real, almost palpable. As of lately I personally think they have been on fire with their new releases. As I discussed above, it was a surprising purchase for me then when I saw these released primarily due to the material it looked to be constructed of. Remember the review I wrote about the Camo Corkscrew Brief and how ruffles are the new hotness? Well readers, I am ecstatic to let you in on another trend that is about to take men’s underwear by storm – the ruche. (If you haven’t read that review yet stop here and go read it. Promise we will all wait for you to finish. Ok, done now?)
So for me seeing how perfectly this pair executed the ruched back I immediately thought it was worth the risk of getting cuts from hard fabric; if my ass looked even a fourth as good as the model’s it would be totally worth it. Once they arrived I was excited to get going and immediately swapped out what I was wearing for them.
Overall I will guarantee these are unlike any other metallic or shiny pair of underwear you have. The inside lining is nylon and your boys will love you all day long. The first couple of times I wore these it was just around the house or to go grab coffee in so I had no problems or complaints. It was when I wore them while rearranging furniture in my house that I noticed myself pulling them up frequently.
Initial impressions were good out of the box and wearing them for the first time. I was giddy as a schoolgirl when I felt the inside too – reminds me of wearing a nylon or spandex type brief and it gave me no PTSD from previous pairs being too taught and scratchy. However, I have noticed after just a few washes my pair has already started to fray in places which is frustrating considering how much wearing I wanted to get out of them.
I ordered a medium and these seem to run on the smaller side of that spectrum. That said, I would still tell you to order your normal size as the pouch is where I think the most room for improvement exists. It works well if you walk around all day stiff or are very gifted, but for us normal folk you will have some extra material to contend with.
So gang what does this all mean for you? I would say if you are into any aspect of these briefs, be it color or the ruched, you will not be disappointed. I personally am using them now as more of a posing brief and tanning suit thAn anything, especially with the fraying that has started. While not in my daily drawer, I still love this pair of briefs and how good they make me look and feel inside. So much so that I bought the other color it is offered in!
