Almost Better Than Naked (Teal, S)

After buying the bamboo pant in black for my partner, I knew I had to own all of the pieces in this line that would fit either of us. We now have the pant in both colors, and the boxer in both colors, and I'm considering getting one of the fitted styles for her! The fabric is THAT amazing.
- Super-soft
- Unisex

extremely useful review
The Bamboo Lounge Pant is designed and marketed by Male Power, a men's specialty underwear company. In spite of this male-oriented marketing, this lounge pant is not just for males. Its rich, silky fabric and relaxed shape will look amazing on people of any gender, and the wide elastic waistband is easy to roll down if you want to adjust the rise (and the length, to some extent). It doesn't have a fly opening, but there are two long side pockets for warming your hands, keeping your lip balm close, or giving your partner an invitation to reach in and tease you. This pant is made in China.

Look & Feel
The pant features a 1.25-inch-wide elastic waistband; it's thick and sturdy, but also has a lot of stretch. This waistband is detailed with an alternating pattern consisting of the "mp" logo in gray, and a small design of three black leaves chasing each other around a gray circle. The top and bottom edges of the band are traced with narrow gray stripes.

The rest of the pant is made up of a delectably soft, silky fabric, which drapes and flows attractively over both curves and angles. It has a nice weight to it, but isn't a thick fabric by any means. The pocket openings are hidden along the side seams; they start 3.25 inches down from the waistband, and extend 5.75 inches down. The pockets themselves are much roomier, though, extending 12 inches in length from the waistband and 8.5 inches out from the side seam--lots of room for playing pocket-pool, especially since the fabric is stretchy. The legs have a slightly tapered shape, but don't really appear tapered when worn.

Sizing & Fit
Male Power's size chart here on EdenFantasys doesn't show a lot of detail--it simply states that a size Small should fit waist sizes from 27 inches to 31 inches. I purchased the black version of this pant as a gift for my partner, who is 5'3", weighs 135 (rather muscular) pounds, has a 30-inch waist and 38-inch hips, and wears a size 30 or 31 when she wears men's pants. My own dimensions are: 5'5" in height, 140 pounds in weight, 28-inch waist circumference, and 40-inch hip circumference. I loved the feel and fit of the black ones so much that I bought this teal one for myself! The Small fits both of us very well, though the leg hems do spill onto the ground a little on her.

The pant's measurements are as follows:

Waistband*: 27" - 38"
Hips*: 48"
Front Rise: 12"
Rear Rise: 16"
Inseam: 29"
Thigh*: 25"
Leg Opening*: 17.5"
Total Length: 38.5"
*Measured flat, then doubled; waistband measurement from unstretched to comfortably stretched.

The inseam may sound really short, but it works well with the long rise; combined, they allow plenty of length and comfort room between the thighs for those who need it, while also allowing those with shorter legs to roll down the waistband without concern about creating a camel-toe effect.

Content & Care
The fabric content for this lounge pant is almost pure bamboo, at 95%, with just 5% Lycra spandex added for stretch. According to the information on the box, this bamboo is "100% naturally grown" and "100% biodegradable." (I'm not sure whether that means "organically grown".) Bamboo has some awesome natural antibacterial properties, which help prevent any unwanted odors when wearing; in addition, it's a very breathable fabric that wicks away moisture, helping you stay cool, dry, and comfortable.

The care tag recommends machine-washing in cool water with no bleach, and tumble-drying on a cool setting. Because it contains spandex, I recommend hanging it up to dry, because heat breaks down the elastic in both the fabric and the waistband over time. Be sure to wash it with other black items to avoid any chance of changing the shades of your light-colored laundry.

The box this pant arrives in is a little on the large side at about 10.5 x 6 x 2 inches, but it isn't really too big for the product; it's nicely decorated with an image of a man wearing the pant next to some bamboo plants. It has a matte finish, and gives the impression of a good-quality product. Inside the box, the pant is neatly folded in a cellophane bag with an adhesive flap. A paperboard tag is attached to the care tag in the pant: one side of this tag shows a man modeling the pant, and the other extolls the virtues of bamboo fabric and lists the company's website.
As mentioned above, I originally ordered this pant in black as a gift for my partner; we had a mini-vacation trip planned for the end of last month, and I'd collected some goodies with which to surprise her. I had to test each item beforehand, though, of course, to make sure it was worthy of coming along on our trip! When the lounge pant arrived, I quickly opened the box and slipped them on. I then discovered that I didn't want to take them off! They were cool, soft, comfortable, and looked so sexy on me! I managed to exercise some self-control and remove the pants, repackage them, and save them for the trip. They did look fantastic on my partner as well, and to make sure she could actually wear them (rather than having me borrow them constantly), I ordered the teal color for myself.

The teal is a beautiful medium blue with a hint of green--sort of a darker turquoise color. It looks great with my pale skin and red hair. I got the boxer in this color, too, which fits me better in Medium, and I've been practically living in both the boxer and the pant ever since receiving them!
