SUMMARY

PRODUCT INFORMATION:


Suggested retail price: $12.95
Line Name: N/A
Available Sizes: S->XL

Cover Male is a brand of underwear that came on the scene a couple years ago with a range of cuts and color options very similar to Joe Snyder. There is very little information about the company itself despite the wide-spread distribution of their line across almost every major underwear website store. The popular g-string style from Cover Male takes on what I consider one of the more challenging underwear styles to get right for men.

TOP FAVORITE ASPECT


Besides the affordable price I think my favorite aspect of the Cover Male G-String is the vast range of colors to choose from. It's always fun to be able to venture away from the basic black and white and into some bright and eye-catching options like lime and pink.

LEAST FAVORITE ASPECT


The logo tag on the inside of the pouch is huge and obstructive to the wearability of the g-string so I consider it a weakness of the design.
OVERALL GRADE
B+

MATERIAL

The fabric of the pouch is a smooth nylon spandex blend that is comfortable for all-day wear and feels decently durable. There is a noticeable sheen to my red g-string and it offers an extra eye-catching element to the solid colors. The color saturation of the fabric appears very good with an even hue and high-quality finish.

The material stretches a good amount thanks to the spandex in the blend with a bit more stretch offered in the vertical direction.

The colors offered in the Cover Male line are diverse ranging from simple basics to neons and camo print. All of them include color-matched elastic strings for the waist and back strap.

Overall I'm happy with the quality of the fabric material and believe it warrants a solid "A-" score for wearability and selection.

FIT

You'd would think that I'd be a fan of g-strings since I like thongs and jockstraps but historically had a pretty tough time finding g-strings that I felt fit correctly. They always seem to be ill-fitting in the pouch or the waistband is too loose or the back strap isn't the right length or tension etc.

The Cover Male g-string runs true-to-size for the most part with the medium I ordered for myself fitting decently. I think given how flexible the elastic is for the waist and back strap I could have ordered a small and it would have fit pretty well. I have found that G-Strings in general seem to favor ordering a size down to help keep the right amount of tension in the elastic bands.

The pouch is about average in size with a good curve shape to it aided by a center-seam design. Not surprisingly, I didn't encounter a significant amount of lift or shaping from this g-string which doesn't seem to be a common feature for this kind of underwear item. I think the pouch could have been designed a little better with more room at the base since it seems to get narrower than it should. One of the upsides of a g-string is that it can feel like you're wearing nothing at all and the Cover Male g-string does indeed feel very weightless while wearing it.

Overall I would say the fit of this g-string is a solid B which means it is functional and scores well as an underwear item given the affordable price point..

DESIGN & STYLE

G-Strings are typically minimal in design but there's still room for interesting fabric and accent choices to be made. I always enjoy plenty of options and this g-string from Cover Male can be purchased in a broad array of fun colors from the basic black and white to the bright neons of pink and lime.

The elastic strap colors are all color-coordinated tot he pouch with technically accurate hue and saturation between both types of materials. The back string is anchored to the waist string so you won't experience any unusual shifting of either elements when wearing.

The one design aspect that affects the score negatively on this g-string is the very large logo tag which is anchored to the inside of the pouch. This tag is absolutely huge and even though it's made from a premium flexible synthetic fabric material I still find it mildly distracting when wearing and ultimately overkill.

Depending on what your activities are for the day, it's entirely plausible this could be an all-day wear item although I'd primarily categorize it for erotic and night-out activities.

CONSTRUCTION & CARE

I found the construction on this g-string to be very good with clean stitching on the seams and no errant threads or roughness on the edges of the fabric. I liked that the joins on the pouch and the elastic string were suitable reinforced which gave me confidence that the garment wasn't going to break apart under normal wearing conditions.

According to the wash/care instructions you're supposed to hand wash and only air dry this garment. I'd assume it would be smart to follow those directions although I think you might be able to get away with a machine wash on low agitation and use a garment wash bag. There's always some gray area regarding how strict you have to follow the wash instructions so I'd leave it up to your own choice depending on how much wear you want to get out of this item.
