Put your rocks in a Thunderbox! Like that? I just made it up – maybe they’ll use it – but seriously you should, it’s fun.
Many of you underfans probably haven’t heard of Thunderbox, I hadn’t. I learned about this fun brand from the owner of UW4MEN, an online underwear store, who is an avid promoter and distributer of the brand.
I asked him about the company and he told me “they really aren’t a company just a one-lady operation”. UW4MEN also carries a lot of big name brands but I like the fact that of all the brands they wanted to support this smaller business, every giant in the underwear world had to start somewhere.
A few days ago our newest reviewer, Lee, wrote about another small one-man operation in South America. We love the little guys right along with the big guys. Anyway back to the underwear, Thunderbox has a very flashy fun style of underwear that can double as swimwear or club wear.
The pouch shorts come in a huge variety of colors and even a PVC black short. I have been looking at the metallic designs made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex material.
The shorts are well made, they have a thin elastic waist band covered by the fabric so that the whole garment has a solid complete look. The awesome thing about the fabric is that the metallic quality stretches and wear with the material and doesn’t flake off or lose it’s shimmer with wear, at least mine haven’t so far and I tested that.
The shorts really come across as show off wear, great for the beach, swimming, clubs or anytime you want to get some attention. They can be underwear and are marketed as underwear but I don’t know if I would use them as everyday underwear, even though they are comfortable enough and supportive.
However, I do find it funny that for being called a “Pouch” Short there is not much of a pouch, maybe you’re supposed to stretch it out so it’s more form fitting, which it is. The whole short really fits snuggly to your body and the shimmer of the metallic shine draws attention to your form.
It is comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time, I wore it all day. I chose the Metallic Blue Storm Pouch Short, it looks awesome and instantly becomes the center of attention I can’t wait to show them off.
|Style and look?||The style is showy, sexy and fun. It is definitely a pair of underwear you will want to be seen in. The look says confident and embodies a sense of coolness and flair. Its cut highlights your manly assets and shows off your legs and trunk in a masculine fashion. This short is all about the look and style.|
|Suitable for?||Showing off! Great as an eye candy beach suit, or lounging around the pool. Wear it to your local clubs underwear parties or just to show off in. Wear it on a romantic date or to flaunt it in front of your friends. This is a pair of shorts made to be seen.|
|Fit and quality?||The fit is snug but good, not one you would probably want to wear all day long, but you could. It’s designed to be contoured to your body. The quality is good, the coloring stays bright and shiny even after several washings.|
|Is the price right?||The short is priced at $24.99 on UW4MEN. That price isn’t bad for a pair of shorts that double as outerwear and can be used in so many situations.|
|Best thing about it?||The shinny shimmering look. The shorts are a great compliment to your body and will without a doubt have all eyes on you.|
|Overall grade||★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
The “one-lady” operation of Thunderbox has scored three stars with this loud flamboyant short. Even though it’s almost too showy to be underwear it still is a great pair of shorts to own, especially for attention-grabbing. Thank you Thunderbox and UW4MEN for introducing us to the sparkly world of metallic underwear!

Check the website for available colors, there are a lot but not all are always available. They even have dual colored styles.
This is an exciting review! Not only is it a hot pair of underwear but we’re taking you to a new on-line underwear store: UW4MEN, which has a lot of great styles like Joe Snyder, animal prints, PPU, PVC underwear and Thunderbox brand Metallic colored underwear.
This site is so new it’s still a work in progress, but you can shop there now, just check back for updates and new styles. Today let’s look at one of the many hot styles featured on the site, the Thunderbox Trident, a metallic colored bikini.
This is a bikini that immediately will grab your attention the moment you take it out of the package. The fabric shimmers and shines as if it were foil or a PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride, a soft flexible plastic), though it is a stretchy fabric of nylon and spandex.
However, I’m sure it’s due to the shimmer effect but it’s not as stretchy as most spandex yet it does flex to fit your form well. And the metallic shimmer definitely will bring in a high contrast, really showing off your contours and assets.
I don’t think this is underwear that was made to be worn as your average everyday underpants but I wore the underwear for a full day’s activity and it held up well. It comes in many colors, I chose a red.
At first I noticed the pouch was not as roomy as other bikinis I have worn, but after a little while I didn’t notice since I didn’t feel cramped in the pouch. I think this is purposely designed this way so that the fabric will mold to your package, after all this is a pair of underwear made to show off.
The quality of the fabric is good in that it can stretch and bounce back keeping its metallic glow. However, because of the sparkling texture of the fabric they don’t breathe as well as cotton or other spandex blends, but it wasn’t uncomfortable nor did it make my groin area feel hot or sweaty.
The elastic around the waist and legs can feel a little rough at times, but overall is not bad, and I only felt that roughness after a long period of wear and it wasn’t overly coarse or uncomfortable.
But let me clarify here, this hot bikini is made for show not everyday wear. This would be a great eye catching swimsuit or posing suit for a physique competition. This is a pair of underwear you would want to wear to get attention, great for underwear parties or holidays like Valentines Day, or Christmas (although maybe a little late now).
But to reiterate I did wear them all day and they held up fine for the most part, I would wear them all day again. The construction seems durable and I washed them in my machine although Thunderbox recommends a hand wash – they came out in great shape.
I did air dry them as I would any fabric like this. After a few wears and washes the color still is holding up great, no peeling or flaking like I’ve seen on other metallic clothes. This bikini has held its flashy style. I did notice after several wears and washings a slight fade in between the legs, but it’s very slight.
This garment is one of those that’s hard to classify, it’s sold as underwear but fits, feels and looks more like a swim or posing suit. It definitely does not seem to be an article of clothing you hide under pants.
Yet, over all I think it’s a great article of clothing to own, you never know when you’re going to need a red hot shinny bikini to flaunt what you got! And as a side note it comes in many other colors like black, blue, green, purple and more.
|Style and look?||The bikini is 80% nylon 20% spandex giving it a great fitting stretch to it. The look is amazing, and impossible not just to be noticed but to stand out. The fabric makes the bikini work here. The cut is pretty basic it has a snug pouch in the front, to hug your package, and the back has a slight contour with a seam down the middle. It is your standard bikini cut and comes in a wide variety of colors.|
|Suitable for?||Flaunting! Showing off! And getting attention! This bikini is better suited as a suit than underwear, although it can serve as both. It’s not the best all day anytime underwear but it obviously wasn’t made for that. It’s snugness makes it supportive so it could serve as a fancy athletic brief. But it’s definitely a pair you want to show off.|
|Fit and quality?||I wear a medium and received a medium pair to try. I found it fit well around my legs and waist like a standard medium. The pouch was a little small but I think that’s done to contour your pouch area. The bikini is a good quality and the material maintains its color well and holds it even when stretched.|
|Is the price right?||The bikini is priced at $24.99 which is a good price for this particular garment because it is much more than underwear it’s an outfit!|
|Best thing about it?||The shine! That alone will get looks, and it creates a contrast that really highlights your body’s shape. And this bikini can be worn as beach or pool wear and is a perfect posing suit for a bodybuilder.|
|Overall grade||★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
This is an amazing bikini and you bikini lovers will adore it. Although it is not the most practical, functional or comfortable pair of underwear it is the perfect suit for the man who wants to show what he’s got! Keep in mind this overall grade is looking at the bikini as underwear, it would probably be higher looking at it as outerwear.
