Review: Skinzwear M77 Stuffit Thong
Skinzwear has been on my list for a long time to try, but the price has held me back. I was able to acquire a new M77 stuffit thong from a twitter friend who happened to have a few pairs to part with (Think they were duplicates in his collection). Again I was drawn to the pair that has an animal print look of the 3 pairs I was able to choose from. I know Skinzwear advertises their items as swimwear over underwear, but I know plenty that wear them as underwear with them being unlined. I also lean towards swimwear being lined in the pouch for my wearing, so I’ll be reviewing them as underwear.
This M77 stuffit thong is made of a blend of nylon and lycra. I don’t know the percentage of the blend though. It features the center seamed contoured pouch. The sides measure in at around 3/4“ and the tail measures about the same at 3/4“. They describe the pouch as low volume hence the stuffit name for it. It’s also a low front and back design with higher rise on the hips. I’m not sure of the care instructions, since I can’t seem to find the instructions. I’m guessing probably hand wash and hang to dry with them being considered swimwear.
I typically go with a size medium when buying from most places, but this one is in a size large. I kind of float on the border of the size line. These do fit well in a size large. They advertise the fabric as a tricot 4 way super stretch with a stretch value of high. I like how it molds to the package and snuggly holds everything. It offers great support, which I think would work well for doing active things. I’ll call it a moderate cut pouch, which is what I like with the pouch cut. Now I’m having issues with the tail. I’m not sure if it has to do with it being a low back and front design making it not having enough length front to back for me. I’ve tried to wear the front lower so the back would rise higher, but not resolving the issue. I can’t find the sweet spot to make it comfortable all day without having to adjust it. It can become more bothersome in the sitting position over standing.
Overall I like the cut of the thong. I love the fit of the pouch and the feel of the fabric. It seems to be well constructed. The tail just doesn’t want to cooperate with me. Maybe one of these days I’ll figure it out. For me the full price for a pair is too much even if it was comfortable. Maybe it is because I am cheap, but $30 plus for a pair is too high in my opinion. I do plan to try other styles, but I’ll be watching their sale items for a deal. Then I did pick up a gift certificate at 25% off before Christmas. Going that route I think makes it an option for me to find a style that works for me, since many of you really like their stuff. Which styles do you like best? With it not being comfortable for me for all day wear I’m hesitant to give the pair any thongs up.
|Recommendation:||No thongs up|
Pros: Good support, good selection of prints and colors
Cons: Tail doesn’t stay comfortable for all day wear
