The first lot 7 I ordered where nice fit but a little tight on the waist. I wrote but go no reply. The next 7 I purchased I thought i would try a firmer leg and the trunks are to tight on the waist. they are nice in the leg. My wife has come up on the account.
Stitching is coming apart after only a couple of months. Very disappointing!
Only bought one pair to try them.
Glad I did.
Disappointed is an understatement!
No chafing - wrong!
No rolling up - wrong!
No more adjusting-wrong!
Only good thing about it is the quality of the material. Such a disappointment

too tight around waist
Ordered large as that's my normal size but found them to tight around waist
Extra large would have been better for me
Not as good as first thought
The quality of these step one bamboo trunks have really let me down.
The elastic waist bands quite simply suck sorry
After 6 months... holes?!?
I'm a fairly large fella that has big needs. Underwear has gone by the wayside long ago due to being very uncomfortable. That changed with step 1. Yes they are amazingly comfy... however I've noticed that after as little as 6 months after I have begun wearing a pair, they're developing holes in the coloured parts, especially around the butt end. This has really sadden me as I thought if found a solution to my underoo needs. But with the price I'm paying per pair, to only get as little a 6 months out of them before they begin falling apart? Sor...ry but that's not good value for. Money in my book. I can't afford to keep buying these if they're gonna fail on my fat butt. I'll have to go back to freeballing on a daily basis and deal with the extremely painful swear rashes. Pity really, I was enjoying the pain free period.
I bought these for my partner. He works outdoors and walks all day. They were good to start with but as time went on, (only had them for about 5 weeks) these trunks gave him major chaffing in the groin area, worse than before I bought them.
Not good, and hurts like hell.
customer service was nice enough to send me a size up as i needed a bigger size than usual. but stil these trunks have the tightest waistband and it always feels like im being suffocated and im not even large. my legs always feel sweaty and wet when wearing this i simply cannot wear them. the leg on the shorter trunk is so long that it is annoying. it should be way shorter. again customer service was great y sending me extra pairs but nope. cant wear them
- Bamboo Trunk (Shorter)
Cannot Recommend - Expensive & Uncomfortable
After reading numerous positive reviews of this product, I recently purchased a pair of Step-One trunks in 'Juicy Plums' colour. (Order #515301) I was initially impressed by Step-One's site and their claims about the bamboo material the they were made from.
Unfortunately, as I only purchased one pair as a trial, and of course they're now in a worn condition, I can no longer return them and/or get a refund. This is of concern to me, particularly as at $29 these trunks are very expensive compared with the cotton Jockey trunks I usually buy for...half that price. I'm also concerned that no mention is made of the Step-One's bamboo production process; are the toxic chemicals sodium hydroxide and carbon disulphide, which have been linked to serious health problems, used in this product? From a wearer's perspective, I was also disappointed. The waist band tends to roll over at your abdomen (and no, I don't have a beer gut LOL); the fabric has a "slimy" feel, unlike the softness of cotton; it feels as though you're wearing pantyhose (I imagine); the so-called comfort pouch tends to let the family jewels bang around; the fabric itself is very thin; and after repeated sitting/standing movements, the legs gradually sneak up your thighs. I used Step-One's sizing guide, which 'seems' appropriate, and purchased the 2XL size for my 112cm waist. I can only think that their sizing charts are overly generous, as I now believe that the Extra Large would've been a better fit, and possibly negate the leg creep.
Elastic waist on every pair go weird despite cold washing also seem to get tighter thought they were good new but I am spoon changing my mind after wearing and washing
Overpriced and not nice to wear
At first I was impressed with how they felt, that’s where it ended. The legs rolled up throughout the day, the waist band kept folding over. And worst of all, kept getting wedgies all day. Thank god I only purchased one to start with. I have now reverted back to my old ones.
Therefore I can not recommend these at all
- Bamboo Trunk (Shorter)
Product is ok! Just disappointed that they release a new colour but don’t that one as a stock item.
The website is user friendly.
Definitely not impressed with product range. Would be good if they could expand colour options permanently.
Average quality, we bought 15 pairs for Christmas, 9 of them have seams coming apart.
Not as good as made out
I purchased one pair as I was sceptical about them and felt they were rather expensive, but decided to give the benefit of the doubt. I put them on the day I received them, and noticed the legs DO ride up. I find them no better than any other Trunks I have purchased.
Make sure you order the right size and the claim they don’t ride up.
I ordered the wrong size, sent the unopened pairs back in return for the correct size. It has been over a month and I still have not received my replacement. I wonder if they would have let me pay for the items a month after receiving them.
In addition, the claim they don’t ride up when you squat is complete crap!
Questions & Answers
What waist size is a medium and large please.
Hi James, we actually have a size chart on our website that indicates the recommended size for each waist length. You can have a look here: https://stepone.life/pages/sizing-chart :) It states that a size M is recommended for those with a waistline of 81-86cm or 32-34in and a L for those with a 90-95cm or 36-38in waist.
Do you do bigger sizes
Hey Janet! We currently cater for sizes 2XS - 6XL.
