Today's review is on the Bum-Chums Illuminati Hipster. The Illuminati collection is part of Bum-Chums Autumn/Winter 2015 release.
The Illuminati Hipster is made from a decent blend of 92% Polyamide and 8% Elastane. The result is a softer, smooth material. The Illuminati Hipster comes in black or white.
What We Liked
The contrast binding and detail provide a striking look. I liked that the hipster was lowrise and had short legs – a very attractive look. The leg bindings are a bit tighter than normal, but the tighter opening kept the legs in place without riding up. I found the pouch to be rather comfortable for all-day wearing. Rounding out our likes 🙂 is the rear center stitching on the butt. This really helps define the look and appeal from behind.
Suggestions for Improvement
Perhaps a bit more work on the pouch. It was comfortable, but felt a little bulky – perhaps because of the center seam in the front. The only other suggestion I can think of would be an upgrade in the material. For the price, though, the material selected is certainly in line with what you pay – creating a good value for the money.
