REVIEW: BUM-CHUMS PURPLE RAIN THONG

OAP TV

So I was on another retailer's web site one day when I saw the brand Bum-Chums. A quick Google search later and I'm on the Bum-chums.com website. As I suspected, there was much more to choose from on their own website. I made my way to the “briefs” page, and what do I find...

BRIEFS FOR GAY MEN

Low Rise, contoured pouches and plenty of uplifting support both front and back; the Brief is a certain winner with guys who like to show off their assets but don’t want them crushing like a neutron star.

Briefs are a staple part of gay men’s underwear and look great under suit trousers!!!

Finally! Our Very Own Briefs!

I knew this was the place for me. I picked out several briefs and came across one called the “Purple Rain Brief”.

This was shortly after Prince had passed away, and I was feeling a bit nostalgic so of course, I tried to buy one.

Unfortunately, at the time they were out of my size. So I did what I often do – went to see if they made a “Purple Rain Thong”.

I was not disappointed…and they had it in my size! A few clicks later it’s in my cart and I’m checking out.

Now, this is my first thong review, but certainly not the first time I’ve worn a thong.

I have to be in a certain mood to wear a thong…I wear them a few times a month, usually when I’m particularly horny.

Between having your ass bare and the string running up your crack, it just adds fuel to the fire!

So, I was feeling “that way” one day while getting dressed and was wearing a purple shirt and jeans, so the Purple Rain Thong was perfect.

PURPLE RAIN THONG

The thong is 92% Polyamide and 8% Elastane…normally not a favorite combination of mine.

I have other items in my collection that are some sort of Poly-blend and they are often times stiff feeling and tend to act more like compression wear.

Yet, these are very soft, pliable and slinky feeling; almost like a thick silk…very nice. What I didn’t realize when I ordered these is there is a VERY ample pouch in front…it’s hard to tell from the pics and they don’t say anything about it in the description.

Usually, I’d be delighted by an ample pouch, but I should have ordered a size down because of it. These were big on me, which in my opinion is WAY better than being too small, and I had to make adjustments from time to time to keep my balls from falling out the side.

That was the only time I had an issue with this thong. The rest of the time, I was barely aware I had a thong on at all.

DONATE

Slightly  disappointed considering the mood I was in, yet I will take it over being constantly reminded I’m wearing an ill made or ill fitting garment.

You’re probably thinking “he’s never happy with anything” and you wouldn’t be too off base.

Aside from the fit issue, which I will take exactly 50% of the blame for, this was a really great thong.

The fabric was actually light and comfortable, with a big pouch and what I really liked was the “string” part of it was a thin strip of fabric covered elastic that connected at the bottom of the pouch to a triangle of fabric that met the waistband in the back.

Some thongs will use a fabric strip that can be an inch or more in width, which just ends up bunching up in your crack giving you that “wedgie” feeling that so many guys fear about thongs.

This was the right width to lay flat and be unobtrusive.

This was my first Bum-Chums thong, but probably won’t be my last!

I’ll just be sure to get the right size next time.

Please note that the I picked up this garment on my own dime. Which means that I am beholden to no one to say anything nice. This is my honest opinion and nothing more.
