Great style but not the right material for me
The storefront was great. Easy to use, good info on sizing. Everything I wanted was in stock. Now to the product. Was really excited about the ethical statement of the company and I love the bamboo socks I have, so I thought I wouldn't have a problem with these. Wrong. I'm quite sensitive to artificial fibres. More than 30-40% artificial and I'm tearing it off before a few hours are up. These claim to be around 80% natural but after 12 hours wear I'm glad to get them off. My bits are getting sore from it and to be blunt smelling a touch. I've h...ad no problem with the FireStorms I have used for years. I've used those on multi day treks up to 72 hrs continuous wear. Not these StepOnes. If it is genuinely bamboo then it's been processed to death. They look great but I'll not be buying any more of them.
Not quite sure what all the fuss is about.
Material is nice and feels good against the skin
Briefs ride up, and become uncomfortable and sticky after a while
The elastic flips over under the waste - this is annoying and uncomfortable. I'm not overweight nor do i have a big belly, but these are really designed for someone quite slim.
Poor quality seams - I had the seam rip along the crotch after 2 wears. Wasn't doing anything dramatic in them, just shredded.
Can't recommend based on my experience.
Waist band is shocking
Generally I find the underwear fabric reasonably comfortable. The waistbands however are an issue for me. They roll up and cut into you. I have tried different sizes and it happens all the time. I wont be buying them again.
Fit great, look great then after 12 months fall apart
Love the fit, love the style and colours, then after 12 months it starts, a little thread here a little thread there and they just fall apart in front of your eyes.........very cheaply made..........
Not even slightly worth the hype or price
1. they're pieces of crap that are somehow being sold for $30
2. the whole, "anti ride up" is crap. they ride up.
3. wore them once and the seams around the little "cut before washing' tag just started to unravel. like as if they did even give enough of a crap to backstitch when they were sewing them.
4. The 'First Fit Guarantee isn't as great as they advertise it to be. first of all, you only get one chance to try out another size/style (which I mean I get because it's not like shipping is actually free) but its not just a matter of filling ou...
Hyoe store THUMBS DOWN
Hype store dont support good luck getting the colours you want. I purchased over 40 pairs most colours are the standard colours. Always miss out on the limited colours. I wont spend another cent on step one again. They don’t look after you. Never got a drop warning. Bonds are better. THUMBS DOWN TO STEP ONE. Throwing all my pair’s in the trash. So who do you look after Step One.?
My husband was surprised at how thin the fabric was he thought it’ll be more like cotton, very thin. Will first and last pair he’ll buy
It has now been over 4 weeks since I ordered and to date no one from step one knows where my order is. Rather than send me another order, they continue to inform me that they do not know where my order is but are content to take my money. I suspect that they do not carry stock and the delay is shipment from the manufacturer but they blame Auspost for the delay. It's also interesting that there is no contact number to call.
Quality has dropped in past 12 months
Quality has dropped significantly in the pairs purchased more recently. Considering I would only wear each pair a maximum of once a week, they are falling apart too quickly. I still have the pair I purchased 12 months earlier, with minimal deterioration. Unfortunately, as the standard has obviously dropped, they are no longer worth the price tag. A few started tearing at the seam, but the latest pair has torn in the fabric, not the seams. Very disappointed.
- Bamboo Trunk (Shorter)
I have 40-ish pairs, so this review may SHOCK you
I used to love this underwear. I have so many pairs. It’s comfortable, in all aspects and all places. But thing seemed to have changed lately, in the last year or so I’d say.
The quality of my most recent pairs seemed to have dropped off, and quite a bit.
Holes appearing after minimal wear and washes (I have always worn, washed, and dried all of my StepOnes the same way for years – cold, gentle, line dry). This is often a few wears only because I would wear each pair less than once a month given the amount that I have.
The waistband also seems ...
Still haven’t received first pair yet as they went missing in transit apparently which I wasn’t told without me chasing it up after 3 weeks since ordering. Then offered tracking on a second pair and nearly a week has past and still no tracking number….
Not as good as I had hoped
Very easy to find what I wanted on the website and a good range of products and colours but they didn't live up to expectations. The waistband rolled over all the time even though I ordered the correct size and I also found that whilst driving the right leg rolled up as well. I have previously purchased much cheaper underwear from department stores that didn't have those issues. I wouldn't bother paying so much more for a product that performs the same or worse than much cheaper altenatives.
Great product but last only 2 months before tears appear.
Bought 5 pairs. Sadly don't last over 2 months before holes appear at seams of the lycra and undie material.
When they are gone there will be no more
I have 8 step ones. They are comfortable for general wear but I operate machinery for 12 hours a day and by the end of the day I am itching. Back to the old Bonds for me.
- Bamboo Trunk (Shorter)
Comfortable but don't last
I have about 9 pairs now, switching from other premium brand underwear I've used for many years and while they are the MOST comfortable underwear I've worn, in less than 12 months elastic in the material is visibly breaking down. (not the waistband, the trunks themselves)
That's no good for such expensive underwear, and I don't have a budget to replace them every 12 months.
My previous name-brand underwear also did this, but it takes over 2 years to get to the state Step One's reach in around a year.
If they continue as my other premium underwear did, they will end up just another pair of expensive 'saggy-bum' underwear.
Questions & Answers
Why is it that we who buy trunks don’t get the option of a fly like the boxer boys do, we have to either undo our jeans or mess about trying to pull the side up to have a pee
Can you use the toilet without taking off your trousers?
