Q & As

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Boy-shorts aspiring to the discomfort of a thong? As another reviewer has commented, these shorts have a seam up the middle of the back panel -- which I found extremely uncomfortable. Avoid if you tend to be bothered by scratchy seams, especially in sensitive areas... 20 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Really comfortable and not showing too much under trousers. 23 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good when new. Good when new but tend to "ride up " after washing. Otherwise soft and comfy. 27 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, everyday, shorts These are well fitting, cotton plants so very comfortable for everyday use. They wash well and offer good value fior money. The skin coloured ones are great for under pale trousers. 17 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor quality i have had these for a while now. They have lost their shape and at the rear its all baggy and loose . Also these come up large. Usually v. happy with JL quality but on this occasion i feel its slipped quality control. Because they are so poor quality I'm actually looking for some new ones now. I'm surprises to still see them being offered. I felt compelled to write a review. Its been a while since I've bought them so i don't feel confident complaining. But i cannot recommend them. Didn't last long at all. Sorry JL, just being honest. 22 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable garment Comfortable. True to size. Washes well and keeps its shape. Would repeat purchase in the future. Would recommend this product to others. 26 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very Basic, not the best quality I was quite happy to find that Lewis's was stocking 100% cotton underwear again. However these are not the usual high quality you would expect from Lewis's. I agree with one of the other reviewers, the material loses its elasticity while you are wearing them and become quite baggy by the end of the day. Having said that, they seem to wash well. I doubt they will last long. I will not be buying them again as Sainsburys do a similar product for half the price! 26 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good value Good quality for price. They are what they are, basic. 10 June 2014
