review: Pikachu Oops! underwear

I meant to write this like a year ago but didn't have time, and then I figured it was pointless, but now that these are back in stock at the PokéCen (yeah... idgi), why not!

Stock images, for obvious reasons.

size: I have seen these advertised on eBay as "men's" "regular size" "boxer shorts". Let me assure you, they are not. There's no specific numbers on the tag to indicate exactly what is meant by "M" and "L", but in my opinion, I think the L size would be too small for someone with a hip size larger than 38 inches. The fabric is perfectly stretchy enough, but the thread used for the seams isn't.

quality: Not bad, but not as good as I would expect from the price. It's mostly just that the stitching is not as even as I feel it should be. I haven't had any problems with anything falling apart.

style & fit: These are boy-style shorts, but they don't cover as much as they look like they will. The waistband comes up a little less than halfway to the navel. There are legs, but they are super short. The inseam is like literally 1 cm. Maybe less. If you were thinking of using these as cheerleader shorts, you're probably going to want to reconsider that.

From the front, they're pretty basic underwear. From the back, they are very flattering. The placement and design of the artwork, shall I say, makes one appear more shapely than one might otherwise. Plus, it's a cute Pikachu, which is just plain fun. In my opinion, the style is best suited for a slender body type without a lot of natural curves. (Basically, your typical Japanese woman.)

verdict: I personally would like these better if they had more coverage and more give in the stitching, but all in all, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
