Daniel Alexander Risky Boxer (510) Review
By the name of this pair you would probably wonder why I’m reviewing it on a men’s bikini and thong blog. Maybe you are still wondering, since these aren’t along the lines of the narrow sides I like and review. What intrigued me to try this pair of underwear is the back styling. This pair is what is called a cheekie most of the time. I don’t know if it should be called a brief cheekie or a bikini cheekie. I’ll be categorizing it under thong, since there is some between the cheeks action. My wife seems to be a fan of wearing cheekies over a thong, so I wanted to give one a try. On a side note, I do find the cheekie look a sexy one.
This is my first try at the brand Daniel Alexander and my initial impression is a good one. Their designs are in line with Joe Snyder and Cover Male, which I’ve only tried Joe Snyder so far. The Daniel Alexander fabric is thinner than Joe Snyders, which I like. Joe Snyder’s is more a swimsuit thickness while Daniel Alexander is more an underwear fabric in my opinion. This pairs’s fabric content is a blend of 85% polyamide and 15% spandex. I like the clinginess of the fabric and it helps hold the goods nicely in place.
I’m not one that really talks about pouches. As long as they are snug and holding everything nice and secure I’m happy. There is something about the pouch of these that just stands out to me. I’m not 100% sure what it is. It says they are an anatomical pouch, but not like others I’ve tried that just have too much room and let you hang/flop down. These pull your sack up and is snug fitting. It does seem to have a pouch created to hold the goods. Whatever it is I do like the pouch of these. Maybe someone can explain the pouch to me and others better.
The back is described as a 1/3 covering, but cheekie is the way to go. They show off the base of your butt cheeks. These are going to give you a wedgie feeling, but with the cut you’re not getting a lot of fabric between the cheeks. I find them very comfortable and are reassuring me I have some sexy underwear on. The sides of these are about 2 3/8″, but they can be scrunched up on the sides some if you like. They are made in Columbia and are to be hand wash and hung to dry.
To wrap things up, I was pretty excited to try these so called boxers even more so after my short try on of them when they arrive. They are a nice in-between of a thong and a bikini. They’re a new way for me to change things up a bit with my underwear. These exceeded my expectations and the plan is to add a couple more of these in some other colors when the time and sale is right. These could be a good stepping stone for those that are thinking about trying a thong.
Update 4/27/2017: I did recently add two more colors of the risky boxer to my drawer (See image below). I went with the sale colors of beige and royal blue. Finding them to be a fun pair to add in the mix. One thing I didn’t mention is they can be a bit warm, which seems to be the case with Lycra as underwear. At least Daniel Alexander’s Lycra is lighter than others I’ve tried.
|Recommendation:||Two thongs up|
*I wouldn’t exactly call the back of this having a tail. But with it having some in-between the cheek factor, I thought I’d treat it as a thong and give it a tail comfort rating.
