As stated in my last Björn Borg review …some of the underwear brands out there have lines for men and women, and sometimes kids too. Björn Borg is one such brand that produces his and hers lines and more. When I recently reviewed a few of Björn Borg's men's line, they also sent pairs for my wife. I may be a bit odd, but it's kind of fun having coordinating underwear. 🙂
This review is on the men's short shorts in orange piquet and the women's Love All hipster.
Men's Short Shorts in orange piquet: Just like my earlier Björn Borg review, the piquet boxer brief is made from a quality blend of materials – this time 95% cotton/ 5% lycra. For those of you new to fabric terms, cotton pique is a medium weight cotton with a raised woven design, and the resulting pattern, in this case, is squares. Definitely a different material than the previous review, but still the same quality. I tried these boxer briefs (short shorts) in a bright Mandarin orange with black wide elastic waistband featuring the Björn Borg branding and contrasting white piping around the pouch. As for comfort and quality, the quality and workmanship are again very evident – when combined with the material plays into why they're so comfortable. The waistband was comfortable and the leg bands caused the legs to stay in place – snug but not too tight. For style, I find these to be more of a classic look with some fun injected. Guys who aren't ready for wild colors, patterns or cartoons may find these to be a nice segway from traditional black or white to something a bit more funky. All in all, a great pair of underwear that any guy should be happy with.
For the Women's Love All Hipster, my wife absolutely loved these. As I've said before, my wife usually refers to her Victoria Secret underwear as her “gold standard.” When asked how she like her Björn Borg, she said she had a NEW gold standard – Björn Borg. I must say, this is saying alot!! Usually, nothing compares.
For the hipster, she thought they were incredibly comfortable. She loved the super lightweight fabric (91% polyamide/9% elastane); seriously, these are some of the lightest underwear I've felt. The cut of the hipster is a lowrise, which gives it a great look, but it also has full coverage in the rear – which is sometimes missing with lowrise. We both liked the style of these hipsters – as a lowrise hipster with super lightweight material and available in bright colors. A favorite of hers (and mine).
For a little extra fun, you too can become a Swedish Export and submit pictures of yourself in your Björn Borgs. 😉
