TRM's Christmas Gift Guide :: Charlie Banana Organic Boxers {Review}

Gift giving traditions in your family may include some delicious candy, fuzzy new socks, or even underwear! For your young little boys, consider giving organic boxers!
You may recognize the brand Charlie Banana if you are familiar with cloth diapering, or other reusable cloth products like cloth pads, nursing pads, and underwear styles for toddlers. This luxury brand delivers premium quality materials, outstanding quality and great style. I still enjoy using their Double-sided Cloth Wipes to wash my face, and be sure to check out my Organic Cotton Underwear review from Charlie Banana that I did in June.
This time around I received the 3-pack Organic Cotton Boxer Shorts for Buddy in the medium size. This size is for ages 3-5 and Buddy's current measurements are exactly what is shown on the size chart. They actually have plenty of room for him to grow up and out, and yet they fit fantastic on him right now too (yay for extended use!). They are made from the same luscious 100% organic cotton as the underwear we own from Charlie Banana which I absolutely love. It's a beautifully safe, healthy material against their skin that really feels amazing to feel. These boxers also have the pocket opening right in the front for easy bathroom breaks for boys, especially when out in public and you just want to get out of there as soon as possible! Sometimes I think of boxers as more comfortable than briefs for boys anyway, but whatever your son's preference, with Charlie Banana you can't go wrong!
Something that is always a pet peeve of mine on any bottoms for my son is the waistband. Often they are not wide enough, too thick, and just too tight which everything else hangs in a baggy fashion. No so with these boxers!!! Not only is waistband a generous width, but they're this really thin, super stretchy elastic that is the best I've seen on any underwear, ever. The elastic's softness also coincides with the organic cotton for the ultimate cotton boxers for any young boy this Christmas.

Charlie Banana is without a doubt a wonderful brand when it comes to Eco-friendly reusable cloth products. They also give back by donating 1% of all worldwide sales to Operation Smile. This amazing organization provides life changing surgeries for children around the world suffering from facial deformities such as cleft lip. It's awesome to know that your purchase is not only keeping your children safe and lowering the impact on the earth, but also affecting children around the world in such a positive way. I definitely recommend Charlie Banana for all your cloth needs for yourself and your children!
