Not a true fit
Not what I expected. I used their size guide but it was not right for me plus the leg length does ride up
Trunks are still quite long
Cannot fault the service or how soft and comfortable the fabric is but I still found the trunks quite long and thought at first I had been sent the wrong ones. Its just personal choice at the end of the day
- 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.
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

They do ride up
I find that they do ride up i brought them thinking they wouldn't. For that and only that im not satisfied. Everything else gets a tick though, not sure if i have thick enough legs which i think i do.
Sizing needs to be better. I picked my waist size, which fits me perfect, but around the leg and pouch area is loose. I find myself adjusting them all day. I won't buy them again. Too expensive for what they claim to work but doesn't .
Questions & Answers
I’m trying to order the new blue bottles but it keeps showing the smashed avocado picture. I’m afraid to order because I don’t want to get the wrong one. Is it just the picture which is wrong ??
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.
