Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer BarginHunta
Novelty underwear is one thing, but the Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large from Shinesty add something new, a built in ball-hammock! This was something I had to try!
The Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large arrive packaged in a satin feel plastic bag with the Shinesty name frosted across the front of it:
Having unpacked the boxes, I was quite impressed by the quality of the Croc print on the centre section of the boxers. Not perhaps something that would be my #1 choice of design for a pair of boxers, but hey, these are quirky so why not!
So, what about that ball-hammock?
The website indicates that the front of the boxer has a “ball hammock to stop the family jewels from getting crushed in the grundle” – I confess, I had to look up “grundle”, but as you might expect, it’s the perineum area, basically where they tend to get crushed!
Within the actual Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large the pouch appears to be a lot smaller than expected, it also raised the question that if the family jewels go in the pouch, where does everything else go?!
At this point it is not clear quite how this pouch will work out, but I’m certainly going to try!
Washing & Composition
Looking at the wash instructions and composition in the back of the Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large leads to more queries:
This shows that the composition of the boxer is:
- 95% Modal
- 5% Spandex
What is Modal? – It turns out that it is a type of rayon fabric made from the fibres of the beech tree. It is, apparently, this material’s properties that give the boxers their absorbent and air-permeable/breathable quality.
The label carries on to state that they are made in China “In Artisanal Macrobatches”, and then also goes on to state “No MSG Added”!
I’m fairly sure this is a humorous comment, since I’ve never heard of MSG being added to clothing!
Next we move onto the washing instructions…
- Machine Wash Delicate with Like Colors
- Do Not Bleach
- Hang to Dry
- Do Not Iron
- Send Nudes
There are also the standard wash icons below the label, including an icon of a camera for the last point!!
– Someone is having a laugh here, and it did make us chuckle reading it.
How It Feels To Wear
The Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large are actually very comfortable to wear, I thought that there would be lots of difficult fiddling to put the ‘family jewels’ into the hammock pocket at the front of the boxers, but I was wrong. Although the hammock is quite small, it does actually sit behind a decent sized pouch at the front of the boxers, (where the Croc print is) meaning that everything just drops into place quite comfortably.
For the review I had the Large, which is sized as being for 34” – 36” waist, which should have suited me perfectly, and I’m pleased to say that they did.
The Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large fitted in all the right places, and due to the hammock and pouch everything nestled in comfortably, and thankfully without producing so much of a bulge in clothing. This is important because too much of a bulge can make them unsuitable for everyday wear.
A nice pair of boxers, which were very comfortable, lightweight, and cool to wear.
If the Croc style is not for you, there are a few other prints available on the website too.
However, these Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large are almost $25 per pair (~£20), which puts them in the higher price band, and they only seem to be available from the US, which means adding another $16 of shipping onto the price of the boxers.
Overall, very comfortable boxers, and I love the concept of the design.
I reviewed the Shinesty Croc-O-Dong Boxers Large in the winter, and I think that the hammock etc. would really come into their own in the summer to keep dear Betty Swallocks at bay, and for customers in the US they might decide to opt for them.
However in the UK, allowing for the relatively high price, and then the shipping costs & taxes pushes them out of my reasonably priced range.
Rating given based on the Croc-O-Dong Boxers themselves, at an available price of £20 (ignoring UK issues, and shipping fees).
Overall rating 7/10
