PACT Underwear, a brand which launched in August, 2009, is making a name for itself as an eco-friendly underwear company. For PACT, being eco-friendly is not just a saying, they live it. Aside from being made from organic cotton, PACT ships its products in a compostable envelope and every pair is inspired by a social or environment cause with 10% of the sale going to their non-profit partners. So, before even trying a pair on, I’ve been impressed and hopeful they’d be as good as their company is eco-friendly. To my delight, they are.
I had the pleasure of trying out their Oceana Trunk. Right out of the cloth packaging, it’s evident the fabric is pleasantly soft and quite stylish in their 95% organic cotton/5% elastane blend. The fabric, as I said, is quite soft and the elastane gives it just enough stretch and memory to make these trunks extremely comfortable. Sometimes 100% cotton underwear stretches during the day and doesn’t bounce back to form. With the added 5% elastane, you enjoy the comfort of the cotton without having them stretch out during the day.
As for the cut, the pouch was rather comfortable and held things in place nicely without being binding. The seat, being a trunk, was full coverage. There was a seem between the cheeks which added to a flattering look in the rear. It’s important to know that the rear seem didn’t bother me at all – couldn’t even tell it was there – which is sometimes a problem with rear seams. I liked how the stitching on the sides is strategically placed to hold where it needs to while providing comfort. The legs on the trunk stayed where they should and didn’t ride up at all – something which often happens with traditional boxer briefs.
While I tried the PACT Oceana Trunk, they also come in a traditional brief, boxer brief, and boxer in a plethora of patterns/causes. AND, all of the patterns come in a matching women’s boy short, bikini or thong.
I really must say that these are truly one of my favorites for comfort and style. The added bonus of these being incredibly eco-friendly make buying these a no brainer. Really, you need to check these out.
