PiKante Glow Thong Underwear

November 10, 2012 Comments off


Sorry for slacking off recently as a heavy workload and the flu bug wreaked havoc through this house….finally getting back to normal now. Caribbean vacation in t-minus 4 weeks! A beach chair, cold beverage, bikini sunning, and hours of nothing….ahh!

If I had a underwear preference for everyday wear, I normally go for the bikini or brief first. But PiKantes Glow Thongs are extremely comfortable and with the added hint of shimmer, the definitely caught the wife’s eye that morning.

The majority of metallic shiny underwear or swimwear that I’ve encountered tends to have one drawback….too tight! When its underwear for the day, that’s an even bigger gamble with a thong. Not the case here as PiKante uses the perfect Nylon/Spandex blend for a thong that provides roomy pouch and stretchy T-Back that doesn’t chafe. As with most Latin producers, they run a little small on us Americans so consider sizing up for comfort and definitely hang-dry all shimmer-style underwear.

I found them at a compression apparel website called Healing Enhancements, Compression Garments.




Good Devil’s Zoom Carnival Bikini

September 18, 2012 Comments off

Known primarily for their novelties, Good Devil’s Zoom Carnival Bikini serves as a reminder that they still make a damn good pair of day-to-day underwear. Brazilian-cut is always a good call on warm days under shorts or work clothes, especially office days. The polyester/spandex ratio keeps you dry and is extremely comfortable. “Won’t these will crawl up my butt?”….No! As long as you get the right size, I’ve not had a problem with it. The front pouch has a little lifting feature too, so if you get called to the whiteboard at the office. Check yourself before you hop-up….

Reputable places I’ve bought Good Devil: Mensuas, Underwear Station, Steveneven

Joe Snyder Bikini Underwear

Joe Snyder Bikini Underwear

Before I bought these, I was a little hesitant because I thought the pictures made the fabric look like thin, cheaply-made, spandex. WRONG! Joe Snyder’s material is a premium Lycra/Spandex that perfectly contours the body. The seams are interlaced stitched, so nothing runs or snags. I have bought many pairs of bikini underwear over time and these are about as well constructed as I’ve found.

The fit me perfectly, but I think you would need to have at least an average-to-athletic body frame to truly enjoy these. The back coverage is slightly moderate and exposes a tiny bit of lower buttocks. If you were a larger guy, these probably would create a constant wedgie feel (unless you’re looking for that). The 1″ sides make this ideal for short-to-normal height guys, but since they stretch well it’s a non-issue for taller guys but they would sit really low on your torso. The molded frontal pouch provides a little lift and accentuates my average crotch. I think a “well-endowed” guy may have an issue of tucking everything in because the pouch is closer to being flat-fronted than a sack.

My wife was “wowed” by these and thought they were a little on the risqué side. I think the freak factor was a little higher than normal since this bikini underwear is some of the first I purchased years ago.
