Joe Snyder


Joe Snyder is a favorite of many of our readers. It’s probably one of the most often mentioned by thong lovers. They have developed a secret formula for making the perfect thong. The perfect thong is something many of you are after as well. Most thong lovers on the site prefer the smaller ones. I think the skimpier the better. Today’s Thong Thursday, is made for you.

The new Sock It line emphasizes the pouch. This isn’t a bad thing in a thong. I have seen several readers of UNB posting pics of them in this thong. It’s super sexy in all the pics posted. Joe Snyder site says this thong is made with an enhancing pouch. One that is made to make your package look bigger. This is definitely true. The design of the pouch is to boost what you have and make it eye-catching! The site says it makes you more confident. We think all underwear you love gives you this, and this pair is not an exception to that rule.

The waistband is pretty minimal. I honestly don’t know the difference between this pair and the g-string. They look almost identical. If we are playing “What style is this?” I would go with a g-string from the look of the front. In the back, unlike a g-string, it does have fabric rather than a simple string. The material is a nylon lycra, similar to the other fabrics in the Joe Snyder line up.

The description also says you can wear it to the gym. I don’t know about you but Its not a pair I would wear to the gym. Not because it won’t pass our “Gym Factor”, rather it will show off too much when I am working out. That’s just my opinion and you can be the judge for yourself at your own gym.

This is a pair I want to try. I LOVE the Pride Frame line and this line seems super fun. Make sure you check it out in the brief and g-string as well.

UNB Ryan’s recommendation: As an avid thong wearer, I cannot recommend this suit enough.  I normally wear thongs for underwear and swimwear and was hesitant to try a different cut, especially in a lace fabric.  The way Joe Snyder coupled the two components of this suit together is unique.  I thought that the lace fabric choice would be much more effeminate than it ended up being.  The lace just feels completely normal and doesn’t look out of place on my figure to me.  I also thought it would be much more uncomfortable and itchy to wear all day long.  The lace used in this suit is very soft and stretchy and stays in place all day long, which is a complaint I have had with trying bikinis in the past.  I will be purchasing more suits in lace fabrics!

I have come to appreciate and enjoy the Joe Snyder brand both as underwear and swimwear.  They are one of the brands that are a “crossover” between underwear and swimwear and give you the opportunity to wear them year round.  I have many pairs of Joe Snyder suits and various cuts and colors and will continue to buy from them.  The pair I am reviewing today is the Joe Snyder Bulge Bikini in black lace.  I was honestly a little hesitant to buy these due to both the cut and fabric choice, but for the cost, I had to give them a try and see what the fuss was all about.  I am normally strictly a thong wearer and do not usually stray away from them to try anything different, but the Joe Snyder brand has made me more curious about different styles.  While not as much out of my “comfort zone” as say a jock or a normal swim brief they are certainly not the norm for me due to the style and lace fabric!  I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked the bikini cut coupled with the lace fabric.  The cut is well suited for long-term wear, and the lace fabric is very stretchy and feels gerat against the skin without being itchy like I thought a lace fabric might have been.

I have worn these on two separate occasions, once for a full day at work, and another on a date night to the movies.  Both times were an enjoyable experience, and I honestly forgot that I was wearing them.  These are not a constant reminder that you are wearing them, and just feel nice the entire time you have them on.  Even with the “bulge” feature they are not overtly pronounced under a pair of dress slacks or uncomfortable under a pair of jeans.  They hold your package in a semi-forward position without being so pronounced that you’d be self-conscious about wearing them under your clothes in public.  I liked the fit so much that I have already bought them in another color and will likely expand my collection further to include more in the future.

This suit is well constructed but didn’t live up to my expectations for the Joe Snyder brand.  I have bought many pairs of Joe Snyder underwear/swimwear, and this was the first pair I have personally seen that showed obvious signs of wear so quickly.  This pair started to unravel along one of the seams where the straps meet between the pouch and the back panel, and while I think it is partly due to the lace fabric, I still wasn’t 100% happy with the construction.  Putting the construction of this particular pair aside, I am in love with the cut of this suit, which is surprising, because I am a huge proponent of thongs!  The cut of this suit is super comfy for all day/night wear, doesn’t cut into your skin anywhere, and stays put remarkably well for a Brazilian style bikini and doesn’t ride up.

Joe Snyder suits and underwear have always been true to size for me.  I have bought numerous thongs, the current bikini, and various brief and boxer-style suits and a size small always fits the same.  This suit was no exception as I bought it in size small and it fit me perfectly.  From the waist sizing to the pouch, it fits very similar to any of the other Joe Snyder products.

To summarize, this is a well-constructed suit that can be worn year round.  The construction falls a little short of what I’ve come to expect from the Joe Snyder brand, but I’m hoping that it was an isolated incident and I won’t let it stop me from buying another pair.  If I could ask Joe Snyder to change anything I would say that I’d love to see more color or design choices in their lace fabrics.  Different, brighter choices and pattern variations would add a lot of diversity to this line.  Give this option a try in your rotation, and I am confident you will be surprised at how much you find yourself liking them!

One of the biggest trends in men’s underwear, we are seeing, are pouches. Pouches made for guys to feel great and have amazing support. Joe Snyder is a company that has been known to have some smaller pouches. When I talked to them in Vegas a few years ago, they acknowledged it and said they would be rectifying the pouch situation. It started with the Pride Frame and now the SK Collection, aka Mini Cheek Sock It

When I first saw the collection, it caught me a little off-guard. Why? Because it’s so not what I expect from Joe Snyder. They have a look and style that they have been known for and it’s worked well for them. The SK Bikini, I thought was from another brand. I did a double take when I saw it was Joe Snyder.

I applaud them for stepping out of the tried and true designs. Doing something different and taking a risk. I think it is one that will pay off big for them in the long run. The pair to me is super sexy. I want a pair now! The pouch looks amazing. They look like they can fit the bigger boys and still have plenty of room left over!  As you can see from the image above, the pouch looks small. However, from the side, you can see how big it is.

The minimal waistband will be a welcome addition by guys who aren’t fans of big waistbands. Another plus as far as I’m concerned is the full back. From the looks of the front, you would assume that its got a half back or less. The full coverage and great pouch makes this a win!

One thing I have always loved about Joe Snyder is the use of colors. They always release their pairs in amazing colors. Their well-known purple, pink and navy are all included. As are others such as the white and black mesh. Regardless of your color prefernce, you will find your perfect color.

tt-joe-snyder-pride-frameI don’t consider myself a thong guy. Well, not to the extent of many of you guys out there. It’s not my go to style or even second style. This past weekend I set out to look into the thongs I have loved and still do. Many of my first favorites are no longer being made. But, there are many more pairs that are still being made. One of them is the Joe Snyder Pride Frame Thong.

I loved the Pride Frame bikini and of course the next step was the thong. Back, when the line came out I got to review most of the line. From the Trunk, bikini and thong. The Thong has become one of my favorite thongs in my underwear drawer. The reason is the pouch. The Pride Frame pouch, is made to be a big bigger than the traditional Joe Snyder thong. The way it is made it is, as the name suggests, frames your pride. The trim goes around the pouch. This thong is the perfect mix to me of a great pouch plus an amazing back. Sometimes you have one or the other but when you can find both it’s gold!

Another thing that it scores points for is colors. It’s in really bright fun colors. White, Yellow, Turquoise, Pink, Purple, Red, and newsprint. My favorite is purple but any color in this bunch would be amazing. I may have to get a pink one shortly to match the purple and white one I have currently in my drawer. They also have a neon line that is black and the trim is a neon color. It still frames your pride nicely.

If you have tried Joe Snyder in the past and the pouch is too small. Definitely give the Pride Frame a chance, I was pleasantly surprised in the bigger pouch! It’s available from the Joe Snyder site.  Also, it can be worn as swimwear!

Pink Underwear is one of my favorite colors to wear. Its not because it’s bucking the masculine color or its wild. But, because I look great in pink. Guys have been wearing pink since the 80’s and men’s underwear has incorporated the color in their line up in the last 10 years.
So if you want to wear pink, what are some choices right now? I have a few favorites that you should check out that feature a variety of styles. So there is one in here for everyone.

I am curious to know what pink pairs you guys love. Leave a comment and let me know


One of the biggest complaints I have heard about Joe Snyder underwear is that the pouch is too small. I too have experienced this and have to be careful which styles I buy. The newest collection is call the MaxiBulge collection. Which has a bigger pouch and allows you show off what you have in the great Joe Snyder colors.

Here is what Joe Snyder says to say “The front pouch enhances the look of your package thanks to its cupping action that gently lifts you upwards and outwards for a noticable bulge.” Also in the pouch is a c-ring that helps enhance your bulge and push it out.

I will say the picture of the pouch looks amazing. Being a guy who needs more room in front I am looking forward to trying this. As I said above I have tired some pairs of Joe Snyder and it just didn’t fit. And when I talk to guys who email and on social a lot agree. Starting with the Pride Frame line Joe Snyder has been paying attention to their customers and giving them more options. Which is awesome. The pairs of Joe Snyder I own I love. The quality is amazing and the fit is great.

We are just profiling the bikini in this post but the Maxibulge is available in a Kini, Cheek, Clip and Capri. The Kini is a super small bikini with string sides. The Clip is similar to the cut we show here but has a clip on the side. The Cheek is a boxer cut that gives you a bit of the cheek. Lastly is the Capri which is a thong cut.

Colors are one thing I LOVE about Joe Sndyer. They are never one for dull and boring colors. The colors are always bright and fun. The purple, red and blues are always a personal favorite. The colors for this line are: White, Black, Red, Royal, Turquoise, Yellow, Navy, Wine, Pink, Purple, White Mesh, White Lace, Black Mesh,Black Lace. These are all pretty much staples in the Joe Snyder line. Its also made out of Polyamide 80% Spandex 20% blend.

If you are interested check out the new line. Its in retail stores now or you can find it at the Joe Snyder site.

monday-fun-5Most people hate Monday. It’s the start back to a new week and back to the grind! While your week may not be awesome we think your underwear should be! It’s my personal opinion that “underwear makes the man!” I hear some of you saying, HUH? You underwear should be the most comfortable thing you wear, because it’s the one piece of clouting most of us wear for over 12 hours a day!

That being said it should be fun as well! We are going to give you five choices to wear on a Monday. Don’t worry we aren’t going to have 5 pairs of thongs but we will have a mix of styles. They also, will be in some bright colors because I always feel better when I wear something bright with an amazing fit.

diesel-yosh-trunkDiesel Fresh & Bright Yosh Low Rise Trunk.

I’m not a trunk guy but a large percentage of our readers are big fans. Diesel makes some great undies and what’s not to love about a red pair of underwear. Find it at the International Jock site for $27.00


C-IN2 Culture Club Lo No Show Brief

I think patterns are the new black in men’s underwear! I mean if you’re going to go with a pattern, you might as well go all out with them! This is the C-IN2 Culture Club Line. These prints were specially created for C-IN2 and this line! Its super fun and imagine if people knew this under you work clothes! Available at the C-IN2 site for $30.00


Full Kit Gear Premium Comfort Spot Jockstrap

Have you ever worn a jock to work? I have talked to guys who exclusively wear jocks no matter where they go. This is not something I would do all the time. I enjoy a jock but like to mix it up. A classic cut black jock from Full Kit Gear would be perfect. The original #10 Jock from Bike is harder and harder to find. Its time to find a new classic. This pair is available from Jockstrap Central for $17.95


Timoteo Rugby Super Low 

Timoteo has been rocking the underwear world for a few years. They have grown in the last few years and continue to constantly put out good undies/swimwear. The Rugby line was released a few years ago and I consider it a “classic” in the world of underwear. It’s made out of blue/gold/white and just pops. The fit will be great as well and it’s something a little more low key for those who don’t want something too bright! Find this at the Timoteo site for $22.00


Joe Snyder Pride Frame Thong

Now we couldn’t have a post about Monday without a thong! I asked our resident thong guy Kyle what would be a great pair to recommend. He said the Joe Snyder makes amazing thongs. And you know, he’s right, the Pride Frame is probably one of my favorite thongs! The Pride frame comes in bright colors. I chose purple because it’s still one of those colors you don’t see in men’s underwear too much. This thong will proudly frame your pride! Yes I had to say it! Find this in many different colors on the Joe Snyder site for $23.00

These are just a few suggestions we love to hear your how you make Monday a Undie Funday!
