Do longer boy shorts tend to ride up?

Do longer boy shorts tend to ride up?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Jesse!

I think this may actually come down to anatomy.
If you scan my review and those of Amber and Jessica, you see that none of us experienced riding up or bunching.

Rosanna however DID find them to ride up and she didn't like these at all. However scanning these reviews you see most people were pretty thrilled, so I would conclude that in most cases they don't ride up. I've never had problems with mine.

Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are worth the high price tag, especially if you are going to be active all day. Extremely comfortable, breathable, fits me perfectly, and they don't ride up at all.

My favorites!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have some other Icebreaker boy leg underwear that I like but I like this style even better. I have some other cotton boy leg hipsters that I don't even want to wear anymore now after purchasing these undies. So much so, that I probably have bought 10 pairs to add to my other icebreaker underwear. These are the ones I gravitate towards when I open my underwear drawer and one of the best features about them is that they don't show a panty line. I am 5'10" and 130 lbs and the M fits me nicely (icebreaker sizing not 100% accurate though).

No ridding up or twisting. Nice.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are great for athletic activities because they don't ride up like a lot of boy shorts and the waistband doesn't twist up. Soft fabric too.

Good, but not worth the price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These underwear work fine, and the cut is pretty good. And merino wool is nice and all that. The band at the top is tighter than I'd like it to be, but honestly there's just nothing about these that impresses me enough that I'd want to spend $30 on another pair. I got these after reading about the wonders of merino, but really I'd rather just keep my Patagonia Active Hipster Briefs. They're $20 a pair, and I don't think these Icebreaker underwear really do anything that the Patagonias don' t do.

New Favorite!

These are my new favorite roos! Comfy breathable and if I'm jumping into a lake I don't feel like I look like the crazy woman in her panties. They are well made and I need another pair! pronto! in another color! just cause! - I wash these in the washer then hang dry in my bathroom on a hangar. They are dry and ready to roll when I wake up the next day.

Best underpants ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I love these. My fave underwear, hands down.

While I also own some merino undies by other companies, this style/brand is my fave due to fit. I am a small, but not tiny, 5'4" 130lb woman and my thighs are more substantial than average. Many pairs of underwear are too tight around the thigh if they fit my butt properly or, conversely, if the thigh holes fit, the underwear is too baggy around my ass. These are *perfect*.

I also think they look pretty cute (which isn't usually the case for me with boy-shorts) and the colours are nice. Bonus: the merino feels fab. Whenever I am heading out for a ski or overnight winter adventure, I make sure these are my first layer.

These ain't your grandmas underpants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have bought 5 pair now (over the course of a year and a half). I, like some of the other reviewers, am a strict lacy thong type of gal, but when engaged in sports they just don't cut it. So I decided to give these a try and am loving them!!!
The merino wool ensures that my most important parts are dry and warm. The fit is also perfect for being active as they have more of boys brief feel with thick waist band and wider hip material. For me these are the only things I put on before going on a ski tour as I know I wont be spending my day trying to pick a wedge through my ski pants, getting chafed by my thong, or cold and damp where it counts most.
While they aren't my husbands top pic in the sexiness department, when I a dry and comfortable and kicking his ass up the skin track I win my sexy back :)

Good but not great

my wife says: they're nice. they fit well and merino wool is great. however, she wishes it had a liner or more material. also, she hasn't noticed them performing any better than her Patagonia synthetics. that being said, she's a very not sweaty person.

Love

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are so comfy. I bought the medium and i am 5'8 and weigh 155lbs with strong legs, i usually dont like this fit because it ends up being tight on my legs but these have enough give to allow me to move and the material is great.

So Nice I bought it TWICE - then THRICE

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Ok - yes. These are expensive.
Are they worth it? YES!!! (emphatically Yes)!

I got one pair over 1 year ago thinking it would be an 'investment piece'. These were in the wash every single week - they were the first choice every time I opened my unmentionables drawer. I bought 2 more pairs. Then I bought 3 more pairs. I would say my collection is nicely rounded out at this point.

Some reasons why these are amazing:
* Merino is silky soft!
* Durable, I've had these 1+ years, no major issues, waistband is still in great shape as is the fabric.
* Comfortable, yet also 'cheeky' and flirtatious.
* Naturally moisture wicking, so great for ski touring or other outdoor endeavors, especially in cold OR hot weather.

I know it's ridiculous to spend this much on underwear, but it's absolutely worth it. I've given these as gifts for the past two Christmases, and get nothing but raves from the recipients. They ask for one more pair every year.

Break the bank and go break some hearts because these things are hot hot hot.

Icebreaker has reinvented "delicates"

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Before the day of "performance underwear" I didnt think I would ever plan my athletic wear all the way down to my "delicates" But that is now no longer the case! I have a few pair of Icebreaker underwear, and when I need to stay cool and dry, I always make sure to have a pair ready. Fishing, hiking, skiing; These guys do the trick. I didn't think I would like boy brief style, but no wedgies and a comfortable fit, I am sold! I also have the hipkini and I love those too! Recommend Icebreaker underwear to all!

Cute!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have had a really hard time finding full coverage underwear that actually looks cute! this pair fits the bill- breathable, stylish, stays in place and looks hot! Yes, please!

annoying!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

the style is really cute but after a while they tend to ride up your butt, the slide a lot and it's just an awkward fit.
Not a favorite...

Change your underwear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a lacy panties kind of a gal, but I loved Icebreaker's tank tops so much that I thought I'd try covering my whole body in the stuff. Right when I put these on, I was hooked.(On here to buy more pairs, in fact!) Super comfy, and super good looking. Stay in place, nice fit, and maintain their stretch. My only complaint is the name on the band: really, Icebreaker? I want people to be thinking of other things than your company when they're checking out my panties.Get rid of the branding and I'd buy a whole drawer full. Sorry, no pics-- (I've been told I'm no fitness model...!) But take my word for it, these panties look hot.
