Editors Notes

In 1978 Sloggi was launched under the slogan 'the cotton revolution.' Sloggi designed and manufactured soft, smooth, easy care briefs in an innovative new fabric 'core spun cotton Lycra®, and quickly became a household name and the best selling branded brief in the world. In fact, in just 25 years, over 1 billion briefs have been sold in more than 30 countries.

Today, 550 briefs are produced every minute to keep up with the demand. The annual production of Sloggi weighs around 3,300 tons, which is about the weight of 18 jumbo jets, and if a year's worth of Sloggi boxes were laid end to end, it would stretch 12,000 km - which is the world's diameter!

The secret of Sloggis’ enduring success are the numerous innovations in fabric – the main one being core spun cotton Lycra®. This process wraps fine combed cotton around every single Lycra® thread, giving you numerous benefits, including: superb two-way stretch for a fantastic fit; the comfort of cotton next to your skin; good shape retention even after constant washing; and it’s easy to care for. This, coupled with on trend colours and styles, ensures Sloggi underwear looks as good as it feels.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good fit. Wash well and tumble Expensive but probably worth it as my husband won't wear anything else! As the official laundry person in our house I can testify that they wash well and tumble well without shrinking. Also they look good on! 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most comfortable underpants Glad these Sloggi Basic trucks are stocked by John Lewis & are available in store & on line. Very difficult to find other stockists. They are the most supportive & comfortable underware I have found. Although they are restricted in colours to only black & white ,they last the test of time tried many other products but these are comfortable all day long & launder very well. 10 February 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Baffled by sizing Good quality but as with so many similar products the sizing and use of elastic is puzzling, through experience I ordered the largest size, extra large, to hopefully get a comfortable fit but they were still far too snug and the elastic waistband nearly cuts you in half. I'm only a 38 inch waist and don't consider myself 'extra large' so quite what you do if you are I don't know, they went back. 27 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants My husband has been using another well known brand for many years, and was put off trying Sloggi when he saw the price. However based on a recommendation from a family member he was persuaded to try them for himself, now he would not go back to the other type at any price. I was fortunate that I purchased these when you had them on special offer, so therefore made a saving. Husband says they are most comfortable to wear and from my point of view they come up well when washed. An excellent product and well worth the cost 13 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by He's happy at last! My husband gulped when he saw the price of these trunks but I urged him to try them, given that I had been shelling out for Sloggi pants for myself for years and wouldn't dream of wearing anything else. He had also been complaining for quite a while about the M&S cotton pants I'd been naively continuing to buy, but was unable to explain quite why they were uncomfortable (men can't talk about pants, obviously). The minute he put these on he LOVED them: perfect fit, neat and comfy and, er, wonderfully supportive. So it's only taken me 40 years to find the right sort of pants for him? If I'd seen a notice in the lingerie department saying "Guess what! Sloggi do pants for men too!" I might have been quicker off the mark. 03 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sloggi fan I have used Sloggi trunks over the last ten years and their performance has been fully satisfactory. Those supplied to this order were described as Basic model but as they were at a good price I ordered them. They were little different from the standard model eg the supporting elastic waist band was narrower. Nevertheless they have proved comfortable to wear and in my view are a good purchase on price/performance judgement. 18 December 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by they come in a small size nice looking and well made, but oh how I wish I had ordered the next size up. Went for large, but they are far too snug - would recommend going for a size larger than you would normally 24 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pants Husband reports that these do the job. They hold firm rather than being too relaxed. 16 May 2012
