My almost-four year old Hollis is awfully picky about his clothes and being comfortable. When he was 18 months old he started complaining about his clothes, although half the time we couldn't figure out the problem. As soon as he was old enough, he started demanding we cut the tags out of his clothes. He hates scratchy socks, tight shoes, and heaven forbid his shorts get a spot of water on them. That requires an immediate strip down to the skin. Well, maybe he just does that because he's in his nudist phase. Who knows.
Anyway, when PBN gave me the chance to review some of the Hanes Comfort-Fit Underwear line, or should I say, when PBN gave Hollis the chance to review the Hanes' line, I jumped at the chance. You see, Hanes has a Comfort Fit Promise. The leg bands on the briefs won't ride up, the flies won't gap, and the socks will stay up and feel like new all year long. No wedgies, no gapsies, no itchies. So I said, "bring it on!"
Hollis received a package of the No Ride Up Briefs, the most adorable little plaid No Gap Fly Boxers and the Boy's Crew Socks.
Let's start with the socks. They feel nice and thick, the ribs on the crew socks feel tight, but not too tight, and they seem to be well constructed. The actually testing of the socks was a bit difficult, but let me explain. My boys only wear socks for about 6 months of the year here. From early May to late October, it's sandal weather here. I can only get my kids in socks by force in July. But I did get Hollis to try out the socks by telling him he could skate around on the hard wood floors. He had a grand old time and told me the socks were "comfy, cozy, Mommy!" That's a ringing sock endorsement from Hollis.
The briefs were next on the list. Hollis normally wears briefs every day, but he will not hesitate to strip like the little nudist he is if his underwear is the slightest bit "itchy." I was a bit worried about the briefs when we got them. While the tag in the back is firmly attached to the back of the briefs, with no hanging tag or gap, the material where it was attached was consequently a it stiff. I worried that Hollis would declare them itchy and strip. All was well though. He's kept them on with no problems. And if Hollis keeps them on, in favor of his normal naked from the waist down mode, it's great. That's a ringing brief endorsement from Hollis.
We tried out the boxers last. The three pairs we received are absolutely adorable. They're in blue and green plain, yellow and blue plaid, and a red plaid. My little guy had never worn boxers before, so I had no idea how this would go. Hollis loves them! He was a bit confused at first, but I reminded him how Daddy sometimes wears boxers and he got right on board. He was strutting around like the big boy he is and telling everyone how he had "shorts under his shorts" just like Daddy! Plus, the boxers are tagless and nice and "comfy, cozy." He asks to wear them to bed (we're night time potty training), so that's a ringing boxer endorsement from Hollis.
I'll definitely be buying more of the Hanes Comfort-Fit line for both of my boys.
