Review: Cover Male Daring Slip Thong (CM169)
The Cover Male brand has been on my list to try for quite some time now. The style offering seems comparable to Daniel Alexander and Joe Snyder. Fabric weight is lighter weight than Joe Snyder, but similar to Daniel Alexander. I consider the fabric the right weight for underwear. To start my journey into the brand I went with their Daring Slip thong (CM169).
What makes it daring (a little) and something different in my underwear drawer is the pouch. It’s constructed of four pieces of fabric. The two outer pieces are sheer while the two inner ones are opaque. So from the right angles a sneak peak of what is underneath is available for viewing. Then you get some breathability up front, which will be nice on hot days. The pouch would be considered a center seamed one. It offers good support and I have used it for somewhat active activities.
These are what I like to call a cross between a g-string and traditional thong design. Or guess they are similar to the design of thongs that have the elastic waistband typically with branding on them. The daring slip thong has about a 1″ waistband that the pouch attaches to along with the traditional thong back tail. The tail measures about 1/2″ wide. The thong is made of a blend of 85% Polyamid and 15% Spandex. They are to be hand washed and hung to dry. I typically still machine wash ones that say to hand wash, so I’ll see how they hold up. Something minor I noticed is their sizing/care tag is sewn in horizontally, so it runs with the waistband. Guessing to avoid the sticking out the side of the tail as you can get with some thongs and their wide tags.
Overall this is a very comfortable thong. I haven’t had any issues with it. The fit is great and I’ve been happy wearing it for a variety of activities already. For me thongs made of this fabric type are fairly consistent with comfort, especially the tail. I think the tail width is just right too. I am satisfied with this purchase and will continue to wear Cover Male daring slip thong regularly.
|Recommendation:||Two thongs up|
Cons: Like a lot of pairs very limited in color choice. Pricey when not a sale.
