SUMMARY

PRODUCT INFORMATION:


Suggested retail price: $18.00
Line Name: Uncensored
Available Sizes: XS->XXL

Aussiebum has traditionally kept their underwear fabrics within the "safe" category with relatively modest blends or weaves that cover the body and avoid any particularly revealing contours or skin showing. Starting with the original "Catch Of The Day" brief and now the new "Uncensored" (formerly known as "Breeze"), Aussiebum ventured into the more risque and revealing world of mesh and net fabrics. Originally the mesh line of underwear included a variant called "Censored" but that has been discontinued just leaving the more revealing "Uncensored" version to remain.

I really liked several aspects of this jockstrap but as you'll read in the review there was a critical "miss" with the leg-strap engineering which collapsed the overall grade down to a less than ideal "C+". Read more to learn how I came to this final score.

TOP FAVORITE ASPECT


This jockstrap is all about the fabric and luckily it also happens to be my favorite aspect of this underwear item.

LEAST FAVORITE ASPECT


The leg-straps left me wanting more in terms of fit and durability so those would be my least favorite aspect of this otherwise fun jockstrap.
OVERALL GRADE
C+

MATERIAL

The key feature of this jockstrap is the new mesh fabric which is a highly stretchable cotton spandex blend. The weave on this material is very open and almost borders on "net" but not quite. Despite being mostly cotton the hand on the fabric is quite soft and comfortable without the roughness you might otherwise expect.

The finish of the fabric is matte with the white coming across as a bright white and the black a nearly pure black with just a hint of gray. The fabric net opens up wherever it stretches more so depending on your curves the material will be more revealing in certain areas over others.

One of the functional advantages of the open weave mesh is that this fabric breathes exceptionally well and makes sense as a warm-weather item or a sports jock to be worn when you want to keep cool.

FIT

Aussiebum underwear usually runs true-to-size and this jockstrap felt like it was in line with that precedent. The medium felt like the waistband had the right balance of both secure grip and flexible stretch. The waistband is a highlight of this jockstrap with a very soft and smooth finish on both the interior and exterior which makes for a comfortable all-day wearing experience.

The pouch doesn't employ any specific engineering to lift your package other than a simple seam at the base to provide some extra contouring. Thankfully the stretchable fabric does a good job of conforming to your penis and balls to provide an effortless fit.

There is one significant downside to the fit of this jockstrap, unfortunately which is the choice made for the leg straps and reinforcements on the sides of the pouch. Simply put, the engineering of the material and elastic combination doesn't do the job it's supposed to do. The material feels quite flimsy and the straps don't really have much stretch which might explain why the are cut so generously. With very loose straps the base of the pouch tends to not stay very snugly in place and consequently you'll get gaps and a feeling of uneasy movement. The sides of the pouch are also far too loose leaving potential for unsightly gaps.

Depending on the type of garment one mistake can make or break the entire fit and in this case because we're talking about a jockstrap a miss on the leg-straps is a huge deal that really brings my score down several notches. While not unwearable or uncomfortable, I would say the overly flimsy and loose leg-straps really limit the usefulness of this jock down to simple lounging purposes at home.

DESIGN & STYLE

There are two basic color available in the Uncensored line including a bright white and a nearly black color (just a hint of gray tone visible in light). The extra design touches come from the bold graphic waistband which is adorned with the modern Aussiebum logo and a kangaroo graphic both of which are repeated all the way around the waistband. Each basic color can be purchased with a red/white or green/white version of the waistband.

This is one of Aussiebum's newer items so it sorts the new woven tag in the back which does dual duty of conveying product information as well as covering the seam of the waistband itself. The tag is sewn as a patch flat against the interior-back of the waistband and does a nice job of including all the important manufacturing, fabric and care information.

Due to the previously mentioned issues with the leg-straps I have a tough time recommending this jock for one of its primary purposes: that as an athletic supporter. The loose pouch base doesn't provide the imperative support that a guy would want when moving around in athletic activities. I can best recommend this item for lounging inside the house or as an erotic item where it is a very comfortable if not terribly supportive garment that can be fun to show off in.

The minimal coverage of the pouch and the open weave fabric certainly categorizes this jockstrap in the "extreme" category as anyone viewing you in this jockstrap will be able to make out your full penis size, shape and color without much effort.

At $18 I would categorize this as a premium jockstrap with a price point that falls into a reasonable range for a well-known designer label.

CONSTRUCTION & CARE

Aussiebum is known for high quality manufacturing and durability and this jockstrap meets those established standards. I did not find any flaws in the stitching or overall quality of manufacturing in my jockstrap. The leg-straps are securely attached to the waistband with double stitching and likewise the pouch is expertly and precisely attached at the front.

This being a cotton spandex blend you shouldn't have too much issue with regular machine washing although I recommend you take some care given the open net fabric. Because the mesh can get easily caught on some other items in a machine wash and subsequently ripped or stretched it's a good idea to put your Aussiebum Uncensored items in a garment wash bag to help protect them from other items. Given the spandex content you might not want to run full heat machine drying on this item since that will degrade the elastic more rapidly than low-heat drying settings.
