Review: Intymen Sports Thong
I’ve been eyeing the Intymen sports thong for quite awhile. I liked the idea of the sports mesh and Bikinis ‘N Thongs on twitter seems to be pretty fond of it. I’ve actually have had this thong sitting around waiting for me to give it a try for quite some time now. It has finally gotten it’s chance to do the job it was intended to do and show me it’s worth.
Sometimes when you slip on the pair you know if it is going to be a winner or a loser. Other times some seem to need some time to grow on you. Well this one from the get go felt like a winner. The sport mesh fabric is a really soft material with a silky feel and feels great. All around it is a comfortable fitting thong.
With the sports mesh and the white piping the thong does have a sporty look. I can see it being a good choice for sports. It has pretty good support and with the fabric they’ll allow you to breath. A feature of these that I didn’t see mentioned is at the base of the pouch. It has the white piping with elastic sewn along the bottom of the pouch that lifts the sack up and forward some. There is only one thing I don’t like about the pouch, which is just aesthetical related. The pouch is contoured, but it is centered seamed about half way up. It gives a little bit of a pucker look where it stops. Maybe stopping it a little lower would do the trick. Going with no seam or a full center seam would do the trick for sure. Now that isn’t going to stop me from buying another pair of them.
The thong is made of 78% Nylon / 22% Spandex. The blend does well with giving an overall great comfortable fit. The sides of the thong are a little wider than a lot of pairs I go for with measuring in at about 1 3/4”. The tail is at a nice width of about 3/4” of an inch, which I find to be very comfortable. The pouch is pretty much a full front coverage cut. The instruction say to hand wash cold and dry flat in the shade. I have been putting mine in the wash and so far so good. I do hang them to dry.
I’m happy with the thong overall. I do like the way the pouch is made with the elastic at the base that gives a bit of a boost. I feel it is the right way to give a little lift. To me this what I see as an equivalent for us guys as the push up bra is for the ladies. I do see myself adding at least another pair of these.
|Recommendation:||Two thongs up|
Pros: How the push up pouch is done, overall great comfort
Cons: Wouldn’t mind the seam of the pouch to be done a bit differently, hand washing
