Today we welcome guest blogger, Holly from Underwearunlimited.co.uk, to GUB. With our recent fascination with men’s underwear statistics, we liked the idea of Holly’s list with 7 fun facts about the world of underwear that you most likely didn’t know. Que Holly!
We all wear underwear, don’t we? If you don’t you really should, as in some places around the world it is illegal. Did you also know that the US revealed that 9% of men in America have underwear that is at least 10 years old?
Underwear is fun and there are hundreds of facts out there about this intimate garment of clothing, many of which we can put money on you not knowing. Whilst many of these underwear facts are sure to never pop up on your favorite television quiz show, there will come a time in your life when interesting facts about underwear will be appropriate at the dinner table.
For example, did you know that Agent Provocateur and Puma underwear use porn references in their advertising to get people talking (maybe this isn’t a fact for the dinner table)? When that time arises, you will thank us for our infinite underwear knowledge.
Find below 7 facts you didn’t know about underwear.
1. In Brazil, you are expected to always wear brand new underwear on New Year’s Eve.
2. In the US, consumers spend more than $13 billion on underwear and lingerie every single year.
3. You can buy edible underwear in almost any flavor you like, with some made from sweets and others from chocolate (yes, chocolate that melts!)
4. Around 85% of men do not use the opening in their underwear to urinate, instead opting to simply pull the underwear down slightly.
5. When packing to go abroad, underwear is the most common thing which we forget to pack, leading to a trip to a clothing store.
6. You can buy boxers shorts from designer UNDER with two solid gold buttons on the front. They cost around £100.
7. In Thailand it is illegal to go commando and wear no underwear, despite the heat, and you can be arrested for it.
Do you know any other interesting facts about underwear? Have you got any fun underwear stories to tell us? Be sure to let us know!
It’s time for some fresh inspiration!
As you know, we LOVE introducing you guys to new and upcoming brands, and on such a dull Monday we can think of no better topic.
So, meet Bunker Underwear: A luxury underwear brand whose design philosophy is to maximize the sexy appeal without compromising classiness.
Specifically, they achieve this through the use of high-tech fabric such as bamboo fabric, modal, spandex, French Eylet Mesh, etc. Also, they’re trying to discover new underwear styles (who knew that was even possible in this day and age) such as their “hidden jockstraps”.
Bunker Underwear has been around a couple of years but already have a loyal fan base on the social media. You should check them out in Facebookland at facebook.com/bunker4men.
FYI, a pair of Bunker briefs is typically around $18 USD. Oh, and currently they have a sale going on over at www.bunker4men.com.
Nice, huh! Enjoy the pics.
Final day of Diëtz reviews! Today I look closer at the smallest of the three bikinis: The KOMFORTMOON!
Smallest. Komfortmoon Mini Slip.
While all of Dietz’s bikinis are small, the Komfortmoon Mini Slip takes “small” to another level. With its narrow pouch and tiny waistband, Dietz stripped down the bikini to its bare minimum, leaving as little as possible uncovered at the front, although there is decent coverage in the back. They are quite possibly the smallest bikini briefs I’ve ever seen, let alone tried on and curiosity prompted me to choose them.
The cut certainly took some getting used to. The slim front pouch does not leave much room and requires some careful arrangement. Although the website claims that they give you an “amazing front bulge,” I found that they were constricting. They are okay around the house for a little while, but I was not comfortable walking around in them and didn’t even venture to wear them under my clothes.
The fabric itself is 84% polyamide/16% elastane and smooth to the touch, but, frankly, I couldn’t even think about the fabric when I had them on since the cut felt so unusual. The Komfortmoon Mini Slip is definitely for a distinct guy who is going for a distinct look and may already be used to such a distinct cut. If you are going for “distinct,” though, this tiny bikini will not disappoint at all.
|Style and look?||Tiny bikini briefs with a slim pouch.|
|Suitable for?||Getting noticed.|
|Fit and quality?||Very distinct cut although small front pouch is a challenge; stretchy microfiber fabric feels like good quality.|
|Is the price right?||It might be worth $18 just to see what they are like to wear.|
|Best thing about it?||Dietz elevated underwear to an “experience”.|

Today I continue my reviews of three bikini briefs offered by diëtz. Today we go even smaller than yesterday’s PILA bikini brief!
Smaller. Milano Bikini
While Dietz might have named this style the “Milano Bikini,” the bright turquoise color made me think that the Miami Bikini might have been a better name. Bold, brief and beachy, I think that prerequisites for wearing them are a deep, dark tan and a Brazilian passport.
While I liked the novelty of the look and the overall cut of the briefs was sexy without bordering on the absurd, I had mixed feelings about wearing them. The fabric was very silky and felt almost a little feminine. The elastic in the waistband and around the leg openings provided the snap of a Speedo that I like when I put them on, but during the day, that elastic was noticeably tense and a little uncomfortable.
Then again, these bikinis are not for the guy who has “comfort” at the front of his mind!
|Style and look?||Bikini briefs.|
|Suitable for?||Any place you want to get noticed (but not arrested): underwear parties, hot dates, nights in.|
|Fit and quality?||Small cut; sort of a silky.|
|Is the price right?||If you’re looking to get noticed, then the $18 will be money well spent.|
|Best thing about it?||The bold styling.|
