BUILD: SlimWAIST: 30″
BRIEF WORN: Small, Black / yellow
The Look: Comfortable, basic, eye-catching.
The Design: The design is simple: black fabric with the aussieBum logo in all caps, embossed on the waistband in silicone.
The Fit: Super comfortable, but the cut of the brief seems to be a little off. The waistband is larger than most, and the cut over the hip is slightly lower on the leg than we’d like. The result is a little too much fabric – but points really are deserved for the feel of the fabric. The aussieBum Flame brief fabric is definitely sturdy – perhaps these underwear really were made for firemen.
The Construction: Superior, as is all aussieBum underwear. They manage to, pair after pair, make underwear that looks like it came off a conveyor belt, but feels like it was hand-made. Even, sturdy stitches and confident seams hold this underwear together, even if the proportions are slightly askew.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: This isn’t our favorite aussieBum pair, but we appreciate the underwear and the marketing campaign that accompanies it. These aren’t new to the market, so they must be somewhat popular– perhaps our expectations are just a little higher for this Australian brand, which in itself, is a very high compliment.
