No Boxer Boxer
not like the game on boxer
I purchased a few pair of these looking for a replacement to the Game On boxer. They are not a good replacement. The fit is awkward, they are constantly riding up my legs and the elastic has already started bunching up in less than a month. I love the Game On boxer but these aren't in the same ballpark. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I was sent this pair by Lulu to test it out. All I can say is I will never go back to normal boxers again. I am very active and am on my feet all day. The fabric feels like I have nothing on, but hugs my thighs but loose in the areas that need it. I will be buying these for forever.

I have the same problem with MARYMARY2, elastic band is getting curly around the joint. I have at least 5 of them and they are all doing the same thing :( otherwise they fit ok.

Not an appropriate replacement for the Game On
I, like many others, liked the Game On boxers because of their comfort and being multi purpose. I wore them as every day boxers and for running.
I never bought any of these new boxers for myself due to the terribly negative reviews but received 2 pairs for Christmas. My overall conclusion is that these are not appropriate replacements for the Game On. Disregarding the length and fit, the material is far different. These replacement boxers are only appropriate for every day wear, not for working out and/or running.
As for my take away from the boxers. I've worn them the past few days, I don't hate them like many others, They are fine for everyday wear. I'll still reach for my Game On boxers before these for all activities including every day wear, but all in all they aren't bad
Just a sidebar. While I didn't purchase the No Boxer Boxer myself, I did purchase the longer version. Personally, I find them to be completely uncomfortable. They rode up pretty much all day and sat really low on my waist. I far prefer the shorter version despite being a long boxer kind of guy.

2 different pairs that are a waist (pun intended)
3 weeks ago my boyfriend bought a pair of these "No boxer boxer's" he usually wears a medium, so thats what he picked out. No one at the store said a thing about how weird the sizing was. When he put them on they were kinda baggy in the but. He works for a Police Department so he needs something comfortable to wear under his uniform. He wore them a few times but they rode up. So trying to fix the problem I went back to the store and purchased a small. This time I was told by a male employee that the shorts ran a bit big, so I should probably size down. This time when he tried on the new pair you could see how tight they were in the legs. Now after maybe 2 washes both pairs are warping in the elastic band. We both love lulu's products, but these are not up to lulu's standards.

waist band does not hold up
Boxer fit great you just have to buy a new pair after every wash. The elastic on the waste band falls apart. The plastic pieces in the waste band begins to pop out after the first wash and continues to pop out worse under each wash. These plastic pieces then rub against you as well as loose the elasticity of the underwear. Not worthwhile unless you plan to only wear a couple times and then buy a new pair. If that is the case and money is no option then they are great out of the box. Should seem like an easy fix to correct such a big issue.
I bought 4 pairs and have had the issue with all 4 pairs so it is not simply a flaw with 1 pair rather a design flaw.

Not as bad as other reviewers say
Like most of the reviewers of this product, I was a die hard fan of the Game On's, and was really nervous when Lulu decided to change things up. But I took a chance on the No Boxer Boxer. Overall, I have found myself fairly happy with them. They are definitely different in fit and feel from the old boxers, as they sit higher on your thigh and are a tad bit tighter. But they have not ridden up on me they way they have for other reviewers. It could just be a different body type, but I have become fairly fond of these boxers, and they are definitely my favorite in the new line. I have found "the longer one" version of the No Boxer to be a bit tight on my thigh, and once you get used to these being a little shorter, they still ring true to lulu quality in terms of support and material.
I realize to say this may be a bit blasphemous, but the Game On's were not perfect. Every pair I have owned eventually developed holes in high friction areas. I believe that lulu did a better job reinforcing these areas in the No Boxer, which I am hoping will lead to a longer lasting product. Overall, these boxers are worthy of the lulu name, and I will not be jumping ship to go find a product that will never measure up.

Bad move lulu
The original Game On's were awesome. Best boxer I've ever worn by far. I turned so many of my friends onto them; each one loved them.
Recently, Lulu stopped producing Game On's and transitioned to these No Boxer Boxers.
DO NOT BUY THESE. The difference between these products is unreal. Huge downgrade: they ride up, are too tight, not comparable in terms of comfort.
Lulu, please bring back the old ones.

Way too tight and uncomfortable
I am so extremely disappointed in these boxers! I loved the Game On boxers and was told at my Lululemon store that the No Boxer Boxers were replacing them so I bought a pair. They ride up and are way too tight! I wore them once and will not be wearing them again- huge waste! Would not recommend these.

First, I was a big fan of the Game On boxers. LOVED THEM. I've got two pairs that have held up well. I had high hopes for these despite reading mostly negative reviews online. Yesterday, I bought two pairs at the local LuluLemon. I'm currently wearing one pair, and the No Boxer Boxers are tighter and terrible. They keep riding up and feel as if they're cutting circulation in my thighs. Had I known underwear purchases were final sale and unreturnable before buying them, I wouldn't have made the purchase in the first place. Now I just wasted $50 since I can't return the other unworn boxer briefs I bought. Never again.
