Bamboo Adds BAM! To Your Booty (Black, S)

If I could have an entire wardrobe made of this fabric...well, I'd be very tempted. It is some of the softest, most comfortable stuff I've ever felt on my sensitive skin. If you own and love the Bamboo Lounge Pant, just be aware that the boxer has a much slimmer cut--you may want to size up.
Wide waistband; Super-soft; Stretchy; Breathable; Antibacterial; Nice packaging.
Boxer fits smaller through hips than bamboo pant.

extremely useful review
The Bamboo Boxer Short is made by Male Power, a men's specialty underwear company. Despite being marketed to men, the rich fabric and relaxed shape of this boxer will complement people of any gender, and the wide elastic waistband can be rolled down to adjust the rise. There are no side pockets, like on the Bamboo Lounge Pant, but there is a covered, single-button fly opening for convenience in the middle of the night, or for giving your partner an opportunity to reach in and tease you. This garment is made in China.

Look & Feel
This boxer short is topped off by a 1.25-inch-wide black elastic waistband, which feels thick and durable, and has a lot of firm stretch. This band is decorated with an alternating pattern 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 trimmed with narrow gray stripes.

The rest of the boxer is composed of a scrumptiously soft and silky fabric, which drapes beautifully over curves and/or angles. It's on the weighty side, but isn't too thick for summer wear. The fly opening is located on the front center seam, beginning an inch down from the waistband, and is 3.75 inches long. There are three layers to this fly, and each layer is made of doubled-over fabric: the inner layer has a single button in the center; the middle layer contains the button-hole; and the outer layer covers the whole thing. This is a high-quality design. The legs have a flowing shape, made to accommodate variously-sized thighs.

Sizing & Fit
Male Power's size chart simply states that a size Small should fit waist sizes from 27 inches to 31 inches. I purchased this boxer 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. This boxer short fits me, but is a little smaller on me than I'd like; it should have a more relaxed fit on my partner, since her hip measurement is a couple of inches smaller than mine.

The boxer's measurements are as follows:

Waistband*: 28" - 40"
Hips*: 42"
Front Rise: 11"
Rear Rise: 13"
Inseam: 4"
Leg Opening*: 26"
Total Length: 14" (13" side seam)
*Measured flat, then doubled; waistband measurement from unstretched to comfortably stretched.

The longer rise offers plenty of room for those whose genitalia requires some space between the thighs, while also allowing those without such equipment to roll down the waistband without creating the infamous camel-toe effect.

Content & Care
The fabric content is 95% bamboo, with 5% Lycra spandex added for stretch. The printing on the box says that the bamboo is "100% naturally grown and 100% biodegradable." Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, which helps to prevent unwanted odors when wearing. It's also a breathable fabric that wicks away moisture, helping to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable.

The care tag recommendation is to machine-wash in cool water with no bleach, then tumble-dry on a cool setting. Personally, I suggest hang-drying to preserve the elasticity of the spandex in the fabric and the waistband. Be sure to wash it with other dark-colored items to avoid any chance of darkening your light-colored laundry.

The box this item arrives in is the same size as the one for the lounge pant, at about 10.5 x 6 x 2 inches--really much too large for this small boxer short. It is nicely decorated, though, with an image of a man wearing the boxer next to some bamboo plants. It has a matte finish, and gives the impression of a good-quality product. Inside the box, the boxer is neatly folded in a clear plastic bag with an adhesive flap. A paperboard tag is attached to the care tag in the waistband: one side of this tag shows a man modeling the item, and the other extolls the virtues of bamboo fabric and lists the company's website.
I ordered this boxer as a gift for my partner; we're taking a mini-vacation trip in just a few days now, and I've collected a nice box of goodies with which to surprise her, including vibes, dildoes, lingerie, and massage accessories. I had ordered the Bamboo Lounge Pant first, and when it arrived, I tried it on, and didn't want to take it off! It was cool, soft, comfortable, and looked sexy on. I managed to exercise some self-control and remove the pant, repackage it, and save it for the trip. I then quickly ordered this boxer, and I plan to order both the pant and the boxer in the teal color as well.

The boxer feels just as fantastic as the pant does, but fits a little smaller. I think I'll order the Medium in the teal boxer for myself, but this Small should be fine for my partner, as her hips/backside are a couple of inches smaller than mine.

Follow-up commentary
I was right--this boxer fits my partner well, and looks great on her! She was very happy to receive and wear it, and loves how comfortable it is. She nearly always sleeps in boxers, and this one is now her favorite. As for me, I love the way she looks in it, and I love to touch it/her when she's wearing it. Win/win!
