Joe Boxer Thong Review

Joe Boxer Thong ReviewTo my surprise I found this thong at Kmart probably 10 years or more ago and based on their website they still carry them. They’re about $10 for a package of 4 thongs. It’s an excellent low cost standard thong that is a great fit. It has a centered seamed front pouch with two layers of 100% Cotton fabric (Note: Kmart’s website say they are 60% Cotton and 40% Polyester, but mine are 100% Cotton by the tag). They have the Joe Boxer name on the left hip. It offers excellent support and could be worn for active play. I normally wouldn’t, since I’d rather wear underwear that is less absorbent when I’m going to be breaking a sweat. The thong has 1 1/4″ sides and the tail is about 1″ wide. You do seem to notice you are wearing a thong most of the time, so you may want to be use to thongs before trying this one. There are better beginner thongs out there, but if you are on a budget then you probably would be alright trying this one. I machine wash and dry them and they’re still holding up.

Update 5/15/16 I haven’t worn a pair of these in a long time, so that is what I did today. I still think these are pretty good for the budget price. A bit warm in the pouch with the double layered fabric. Also the pouch isn’t real roomy, but keeps everything nice and snug for me. Can’t really complain about them much other than the warmth. They felt great on all day. I might just have to pull them out of the drawer more often.

My Rating Overview

Support Rating: 5.0
Overall Comfort: 4.5*
Tail Comfort: 4.0*
Recommendation: Two thongs up*

*I knocked a point off for tail comfort, since you do notice you have a thong on and it could be bothersome to a new thong wearer. Overall I find it comfortable, so I just knocked a half point off. The two thongs up is because it is a solid thong for the price. Yes, there are better options out there, but you’ll be hard pressed to find them with such a budget price.

    These look like good everyday cotton thongs which sounds like what you wear them for? My go to everyday thong has been the Jockey seamfree thong which I think are super comfortable to wear and I would definitely recommend checking them out if you haven’t already.

    • I don’t really wear them too often. Typically, I like non-cotton underwear, so I go for other thongs first. I’ve had a few people tell me they like the Jockey seamfree thong. I’ll have to put it on my wishlist and give them a try.

    What do you consider a “beginners” thong? Do you go by price to keep someone from spending a lot in case they don’t like them? Do you go by fabric or cut? Please do explain, Thank you…

    • Thanks for your comment. Basically I go by overall comfort, which the fabric and cut can effect how comfortable a thong is. I figure if I don’t notice I’m wearing a thong then it will probably be a good beginners thong. If I do notice I’m wearing one, but it is still pretty comfortable then I’d probably lean it more towards a person use to wearing one at least some times. Only time I’d recommend a pair based on price is if someone was on a budget and asked. I’m not one to spend $20 to $30 on a pair, so most things I review are fairly reasonably priced in my opinion especially if you catch a sale. Hope that helps explain my thought process some to you. Have any more questions let me know.

    Thanks for the quick reply it’s appreciated. I’ve been wearing thongs now for at least the last 15 years. I totally agree with your thought process. I don’t like spending a lot per pair either, after all they are less fabric than a bikini…. A past girlfriend actually got me to try one of hers on. To my surprise it had plenty of stretch for the boys and looked about as normal as a thong can look on a guy. Bought it the right color and only someone well versed in the male thong would know the difference. Plus they are 3 for $30 all day long, cheaper on sale.

    • Never tried women’s though I suppose the flat front pouch of men’s would be similar in theory. Always good to hear a woman encouraging their guy to try on a thong. I’ve noticed that women’s underwear is typically cheaper than men’s too.

    They don’t appear to make them anymore (by same name at least) but the ones that work are The Calvin Klein seamless microfiber They have a ton of stretch to them, with a 34-35 inch waist I actually fit fine in a medium. Tired a large and it had so much stretch the boys moved around. I do have a few other women’s items but you would be very hard pressed to tell them different from a men’s version. All are microfiber or some other synthetic material as cotton doesn’t have enough stretch were needed. I don’t have anything pink, polka dot, lace,or flower prints. Just basic solids, black,gray, and one dark blue. Seamless, lightweight and with proper care last a long time. You already outside of the social norm as a bikini and thong wearer (I too have bikinis for when the possibility of getting busted with a whale tail isn’t an option.) and sounds like you are very fortunate to have a spouse that totally accepts them, give a women’s model a try some time… Just like the first time you tried a thong may be a little different, but find a proper fitting one…. You will be hooked :-). Enjoy your reviews keep them coming.

    suprised u like these thongs…i have tried them and they are horrible….cheap underwear and not comfortable….u should review ergowear or ac

    • For the price they are decent budget thong. Not ones I would go out and buy anymore. Some day I will try ergo, but probably not AC. Not really much that interests me there. Maybe some of his swimwear, but not on the top of my try list.

  6. Mike says:

    This was my first pack of thongs when I started wearing them 5 years ago. I know they’re kind of “boring” as far as thongs go, but I really like these! You do seem to realize you’re wearing a thong when you have a pair of these on, but in a way that can kind of add to the sex appeal of it. Overall I find them pretty comfortable.

    You’re right though, I do tend to turn to something else when I work out.

  7. Jason says:

    These were my first foray into men’s thongs about 7 or 8 years ago. I remember feeling how comfy they were and I was hooked. I have bought other brands over time, but this is a great everyday thong for both beginners and experienced wearers alike. I won’t stop buying Joe Boxer any time soon

  8. Black Stallion says:

    I have these, I wear these more in the winter, or if I’m wearing dress slacks, they’re not good for gym, running, or anything where you might sweat a lot.

    JOE BOXER MENS THONG UNDERWEAR @ KMART ARE A HELLUVA BARGAIN!!!! I know u say they are not a good beginners thong but i choose to differ. Yes, u do notice you’re wearing a thong with these on initial try-on, but that doesn’t last long at all. I wear my jb’s daily because they’re incredibly comfy, plus, i own more than 40 pairs. At only $10/4pk, these thongs are super affordable. Best part, my girl loves that I wear thong underwear. As for a good beginners thong, I believe Papi stretch cotton thongs are the best for newbs, $15-$22 / 3pk online (please review). AWESOME WEBSITE BRO!!!!

    • I wouldn’t say they’re not a good beginner thong. I think there are better options for a first thong, but when on a budget they would be good enough. Glad to hear your woman enjoys your thong underwear. I’m not usually into underwear with just the elastic waistband with branding, but will consider. Glad you like the blog. Thanks for the comment and your experience with the Joe Boxer thong.

    I’ve tried the joe boxer thongs and they are to inconsistent in sizing. They are a cheap option and would be an ok thong for new thong wearers but there are better options for more money. I’ve been wearing thongs exclusively for 10 plus years now and I’ve found 3 brands that make comfortable men’s thongs. Clever fits great and has a good selection with good waist coverage as not to show above jeans. Clever is also a more advanced thong wearers thong. You can feel the thong most the time but isn’t uncomfortable. PPU used to make great thongs and still own a few pairs that are older and very comfortable. Sadly PPU has moved more towards the novelty style thong and I’ve stopped purchasing them. Doreanse also makes comfortable thongs but you have to size up as they are European and tend to run a little small. They hold up well and most of the time you don’t notice them. I also forgot Covermale cheeky underwear. They are comfortable with lots of support and are good for men that don’t want to show to much butt. Thanks for your review on the joe boxer thongs.

    • I’ve only ever bought one package of them, so thanks for share your experience with the sizing of them. Doreanse is a new brand for me I’ve recently tried and really liked the one I got. I need to get more of their styles to try. Haven’t tried Clever, PPU, or Cover Male yet. Tried one of Daniel Alexander’s cheekies and find it to be a nice one to change things up a bit. Thanks for the comment.

    Look closely Kmart “Joe Boxer ” thong is not Joe Boxer brand today, some years back they were.
    They had a note that said late spring they will be.

    • The Bottom Drawer says:

      That is a good observation to note. I did notice recently that they were showing a no name brand of thong on their site that looks like Joe Boxer. Have you tried them to know if any difference?
