Upgrade Your Drawers {Review}

Usually I blog about home décor and furniture, but today I am talking about different drawers.

Man drawers.

Manties, if you will.


I voluntarily offered to review the new men’s underwear line by Mario Lopez. It’s appropriately named MaLo (get it?) and I’m about to show you why I volunteered to review men’s underwear.


Yes, that is what I call hole in the crotch. My husband feels it is perfectly acceptable to hold onto underwear, socks, t-shirts, etc. with holes in them.

Enough of this nonsense! Why do men do these things? Seriously!

Unbeknownst to him, he was getting an upgrade. I am so tired of holey underwear. I finally got rid of the holey, faded Superman underwear. BE GONE!


My hubby, bless his heart, is pretty easy going so he was like, “Oh. Em. Gee. These are FOR ME?!” and then was super ticked when I told him I had to take photos and wash the underwear before he could try them on.



But finally, he got to try them on, and his response was, “These are actually pretty comfy!” and then he started playing video games.

In his underwear.

My life is so glamorous, I know. I know this.

So, my hubby is a boxer kinda guy, and these are more like boxer briefs. He thought they were soft, comfortable and they didn’t feel too tight around the waist or thighs. Who knew guys worry about these things, too?

I don’t know if these will convert him from his love of boxers, but they might. They look pretty cute, I’ll admit.

I convinced Daniel to let me take a picture of him in his underwear for you all to see how good they look. I can’t believe he let me do this.

Ok, no he didn’t.

But here’s a cute picture of him fully clothed.


If your hubby is willing to do a before/after shoot of his MaLo underwear makeover, you could win a trip to meet Mario Lopez himself. More deets over here.

And to see more underwear makeovers (or takeovers…depends on how you look at it), you can view more on Pinterest.

Overall, I think if Daniel enjoys the fit of these boxer briefs, this would be a brand we’d consider buying. They’re really soft, and the line can be found at Kmart!

Does a special man in your life need an underwear makeover?

    Oh come on… he wouldn't let you post a pic of him in his manties? My hubby likes them too… and he let me post a pic. Wish you had been out in LA a few weeks ago… I saw MaLo at K-Mart. Yes, I live such a glamorous life. Miss you!

      Remember when we saw him at BlogHer last year at the alternative tampon party? Ah, I had some amazing cocktails that night. 🙂

    I would say they are a winner if he plays video games in them. 🙂
