There isn't a lot to say about these pants other than that they're absolutely heavenly. If Eden began carrying lingerie like this for women, I would most definitely be spending a lot more time browsing through. They're comfortable, help control your body temperature and can easily be adjusted to fit many different body types. An all-around five-star!

extremely useful review
Let me preface this review by saying that I had super high expectations for these pants. I've had my eye on them for about a year now, and have only just managed to catch them while they're in stock. I snapped up all that Eden had in a size small, and one pair in a medium as well, as a gift. I also plan on going back to get another pair when I can in a larger size for my mother - she'll love the soft, comfy feel of these as much as I do.

If the product picture of a muscle-bound shirtless man and the brand name - Male Power - didn't quite tip you off, you might like to know that these aren't exactly formulated to fit women. If buying these as a female or for a female, please consider this before purchasing - they do come up a little bit baggy in the front on a woman. This is not a huge issue for me, because they're not made to be form-fitting in the least and I actually prefer my lounge pants to be looser. For someone who wishes to specifically flatter their form, these do not fit like yoga pants at all. Something you don't find in a lot of women's lounge pants (that I think is sorely lacking) is pockets: these pants have two pockets at the side seams, and they're a super convenient feature. The waistband, which is about an inch and a half thick, stretches easily from about 28"-38", though it would likely be most comfortable between 28"-32". Down the front, the length is about 41", and closer to 44" down the back, which means that there is a bit of bum room. The waistband can easily be rolled if you're a shorter wearer because there's a ton of room at the top of these pants, or alternatively, you can hike them up pretty comfortably.

These pants are very easy to care for, though I washed them first with cold water and salt to set the color just in case. I don't know that this was necessary, but it's helped keep my bamboo socks from fading in the past. These pants, which are 95% bamboo (with a little Spandex for stretch) are machine washable and can be tumbled dry on low heat. This makes them by far the easiest-to-care-for lingerie I've obtained through Eden. This, when combined with bamboo's antibacterial qualities and absorbancy will make these my go-to summer housepants. I cut the tags out for comfort, which was easily done (no complicated stitching to deal with).

Rather than a plastic bag, these come in a small cardboard box, which would make them easy to wrap if you desired to give them as a gift. The box bears the same photo of the shirtless hunk on the front and back, so it will be super clear that they're meant to be for men (if you're gifting to a woman), but once the recipient gives these a go, I can guarantee that they won't care what's on the box.
Follow-up commentary
I still wear these rather frequently, and they material has held up well through washings. I haven't experienced any of the thinning that I have often gotten with other bamboo clothing in the past, which I suspect is largely due to the loose fit, as I have encountered it with the tops. None of the stitching is loose, the elastic is still full of life and they're still pretty comfy.

    I don't think that I've ever written a review this short, but I'm trying to be a bit more readable - please let me know if I've left out any details that you might like to have!

    Awesome review! You've got everything covered! I prefer reading short but precise reviews any day -- I tend to skip those super long reviews with lots of useless information -- they bore me senseless!
  • Wicked Wahine
    What a wonderful review and you didn't miss a thing, even throwing in the advice about using a mordant (in this case table salt) to set colors in dyed clothes, smarty-pants! I love reading your reviews and I am sure glad you're a mentor so you can maybe some of the fabulousness can rub off!
