The new Model 355 'Shimapan' briefs from First4Legwear are a classic 'panty' design, based on the famous 'Shimapan' (short for 'shima-pantsu'; Japanese for 'striped panties') which are known and loved by fans ('otaku') of Japanese 'anime' and 'manga' worldwide, as they are famously worn by many 'anime' heroines. They are a classic 'brief' style, and come in the popular blue/white horizontal stripe, and simply ooze cuteness or 'kawaii'! Available in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL. They are made from soft, stretchy 95% cotton/5% Lycra, and are incredibly comfortable. Regarding sizing, a number have customers have informed us that they find the 355's to be a little on the small side, so we recommend you go one or two sizes bigger than you would normally choose.
So whether you are a fan of Japanese animations or comics, or into 'cosplay', or just like striped briefs, these are the ones for you!
