Review of Zobha Boyshort Panties and 360 Shorts

Lulu underwear in black on top, Zobha in nude

Not that I love posting photos of my underwear on the internet but I wanted to show a comparison of lulu's laser cut underwear (not the latest version - but the ones before them) to the Zobha Boyshort Panties I ordered the other day. The Zobhas have a fuller cut in the back and a wider crotch so they stayed in place on me perfectly and the laser cut edges did not chafe me at all. I wore them under compression shorts to run three miles on the treadmill today. I know someone commented on here that their Zobha underwear hasn't lasted very well so I'll keep you updated if they start falling apart prematurely. For now, they're a winner as far as fit and function are concerned.



Some photos of the Zobha 360 short compared to a pair of lululemon Biker Groove Shorts, both are size 12. As you can see, the Zobhas are a little longer than the Biker Grooves. The legs are also slightly wider. I didn't really notice that when I tried them on and I thought overall they fit similarly to Biker Grooves. I included a photo of the interior label - the fabric content is 87% supplex, 13% lycra. I thought the material felt rougher and thicker than luon. I had my husband feel the fabric, too, and he concurred. I was hoping these would be more like compression shorts and an inch or so shorter than the Biker Grooves so they are going back. Since they are $20 more than Tall Reverse Groove shorts I don't know why you'd order these over the lulu version. I know I stated in a previous post Zohba has free returns but that's no longer the case. They now charge $5 for returns. I should have checked the return info before I ordered but live and learn.

Thanks so much for posting the panties. I'm looking desperately for a comfortable thong or other no-show panty for under my Lulu pants. I was looking at a Lulu boy short the other day, but not being able to try them on (over my own panties), I was unwilling to risk that steep price.

Please, commenters, share all your favorite brands for no-sho and no camel toe. Thanks! (I do yoga and barre, mostly)

I posted this before, but thought I'd do it again. I have tried lulu thongs, commandos and moving comfort thongs. I wear underwear for yoga and barre under my lulu pants. I have found moving comfort thongs to be the best. I don't feel a thing, no lines- very comfortable. For running under compression shorts I wear nothing.

I love Commando Cotton Bikini. Laser cut, totally no show, stay put and bum covering. They are 71% cotton, 29% spandex. Maybe not enough technical fabric for some but I have not had a problem. The only drawback is the price, but isn't it always?

Not a technical fabric but I swear by these from VS:

I live in Wunder Under Crops and I really like these hiphugger cut, no-show panties from Victoria's Secret. They don't last as well as Lulu panties do, but I like the fit MUCH better and at $10 each I'm OK with the quality.

agree 150% - VS is the best - 3 for $30 no show. lulu does not want to admit that the undys they sell are obsolete, not comfortable, ride and not friendly to woman's body. i stopped buying lulu underwear since i found VS. time for change, lulu!

When I asked on one of my running boards, other people have recommended Hanky Panky brand underwear, too.

On Gossamer Mesh Hip G thong. Never wore thongs until I took up yoga a few years ago and needed no show underwear for yoga pants. I'd gone 40 years without ever trying a thong so it was a difficult transition. Love the Hip G because you can't feel it at all, if you know what I mean.

Hanky Panky (available at Nordstrom Rack for $12 as opposed to their usual prices that are generally much higher) makes thongs in a lace style that is exactly like the Victoria's Secret Lacie but the full-price HP is much more expensive (you pay for prettier patterns). HOWEVER, HP also makes a lace edge full cotton thong that is also the exact same style as the Lacie and beyond comfortable. I've referred a ton of friends to these and all have chosen to switch from VS to HP. They are soooo soft in the cotton variety so I wear those with all my WUs and Lulus. I now save my VS just gfor work clothes/jeans.
