Re:AliExpress for products from China

Date Posted:08/09/2016 10:01:44Copy HTML

I have always been pleased with AliExpress purchases.  I like to maintain a collection of highly unusual styles that provide conspicuously less than full coverage in front, and when new such styles appear, an AliExpress seller will often be the first to introduce them for sale.  My most recent acquisition has been what AliExpress calls a "Japanese style mini bulge pouch."   That name doesn't tell you much.  Too scanty even for Japan and while certainly "mini," it is actually a G-string cut so narrow it covers only your shaft, and then not completely.  I love to wear it for backyard sunning.  Sometimes they will include in their name for some super-scanty item "jj bag," although I have no idea what the "jj" means to them.  So to find unusual items you just have to scan a seller's pictures for something out of the ordinary.  And when something turns up that is much too bare for any beach, the price is still right for limited-use swimwear.

 I recently decided to give AliExpress a try. My overall opinion is that the quality is decent for the price; but they don't compare at all to suits like MuscleSkins. I ordered three things:

Mesh Hole Thong

Gauze FishNet Mesh Briefs

Convex Crotch Bikini Briefs

I normally wear a size 33-34 waist pants. I heard that the sizing ran small so I ordered XL for the Mesh Briefs and Bikini Briefs. That turned out to be a mistake, I should've stuck with the sizing chart and ordered L instead. I probably could've even gotten away with M. Oh Well.

The fabric of the thong and FishNet Brief feel pretty rough and a little scratchy. But other than that the overall look and style were nice. Of the three I liked the Bikini Briefs the most. The fabric of these bikinis was super smooth and soft. Felt great against my skin.

 I am an avid buyer of Aliexpress thongs (and many other items as well.)Be sure to pay close attention to their sizing as it runs generally two sizes smaller than US sizing. Be sure to have your conversion in Centermeters. Take your time, read and re read the web page with the item you may want. Understand sizing and where it's coming from, if you have a question, generally, they are great communicators and will try their best to accomidate you (the buyer) be patient as shipping from China takes a long time but your patience will be rewarded with a quality product, well packaged and well made arriving at your door for an incredibly low (ridiculously low) price.

 I got my g-strings from Aliexpress.  They fit my waist fine but the pouch is a little on the large size.  I have a few Joe Snyder Bulge thongs and that size pouch fits me fine.  I'm pretty much average size.  The Aliexpress ones have considerable more room in the pouch.  The material is fine 85% nylon 15% lycra.  The are stitched well.  Because of the pouch size I wouldn't order them again.

I think it is hit and miss ordering from China.  Sometimes the photos are ripped from branded products and the actual item will be inferior.  There are knock off Aussiebum (should be made in Australia) and Joe Snyder (Mexico).  Official Aussiebum seems reasonably priced, so better go direct to them.  Joe Snyder is widely available so you should be able to check it is legit.  Pricing will usually give it away; if it is cheap then likely to be the Chinese copy (everything on AliExpress will be Chinese)

Sizing is always an issue, but if you read carefully you stand half a chance of getting it close.  You have to check if they are western or asian sizes.  If asian then go one or two sizes up.

That said, the Desmiit brand seems ok, the fabric isn't brilliant, but acceptable and the thong for example is reasonably well cut/made.  Brave Person fabric seems to be very lightweight - fine if you like that.  Both of these seem to be Chinese brands and often seen on ebay.  They can be got for under $10 including postage.

I've made several orders with AliExpress the past 3-4 years, ranging from soft goods like swimwear to hardware like plumbing valves and shower systems. If I'm not in a hurry and the product I'm purchasing is "made in China" anyway, I save about 75% of the price. Almost always, I click the "free shipping" option then sort by price.

Yes, you must pay close attention to the descriptions, especially material, sizes and brand names. Many Chinese vendors use a brand as a generic description (such as referring to a copy machine as "Xerox" or a tissue as a "Kleenex"). Especially watch for descriptions with more than one "brand name".

When I find a product I like, I grab the "model number" from the description, then search for other vendors selling the same item.  Often, other vendors provide a better description, more pictures, and/or a lower price. There are occasions when a vendor is selling multiples of a product for just a bit more than the price for one, so watch for that, too.

Regarding swimwear, I've ordered some of the "Joe Snyder" product and have been very pleased with the quality. I'm pretty sure it's a copy, but the price represents very good value for the product.  'tiggerix' mentioned Desmiit.  I purchased one of their men's thong and it's the closest thing I've seen to a Speedo-brand thong, with the exception not being too much fabric. To me, that makes it the perfect "conservative" thong.

 Not sure about the fabric but like JM said earlier DEFINITELY order the biggest size they have. From my experiences? Even as large as they have still might be too small, and I'm skinny. It's almost like TM thongs are made for kids (but they aren't).

 My experience with aliexpress resulted in never receiving the swimsuit I ordered.  I contacted them about it and they said that they will conduct an investigation, that lasted three weeks.  Their response was that it is the fault of US Postal Service and therefore they would not resend or refund.  Essentially, I am out of pocket money for the swimwear that I never received.
I don't trust this company.

Afterwards, I did find that the founder of aliexpress admitted that he started the company based on deception.  Now that is their corporate culture.

From what I can tell AliExpress is just a site that has many sellers on it - like ebay and Amazon.  You can find different prices for the same item from various sellers.  Some will have reviews and photos from customers.

Some are poor copies of other brands, others such as Desmiit seem to be a brand of their own.  I have bought some stuff from the site with no issues.  Don't expect high quality fabrics though.

You have to trawl through a lot of items to find what you want.

First:  AliExpress is not the company you are buying from. They are a listing and transaction agent, abit like ebay.  If you buy 6 thongs it is quite possible you are buying form six different suppliers. 

Second: I have ordered many items through ebay and through AliExpress.

I have purchased more from ebay. My feedback rating is 100% with a feedback number of over 2,000 so I think I have some experience and credibility with the ebay process.  Recently I have ordered from a number of vendors through AliExpress. 

With AliExpress you are almost exclusively buying from vendors in the far east, at low cost, often with free shipping.  Like all buys from China, the sizing tends to run from very small to ridiculously small. Quality also varies. This is not a function of AliExpress, but the vendor who actually lists the item for sale through AliExpress, and who ships the item.

There are some issues with AliExpress, like the sort by "price" does not do a sort by "price and shipping", or ones ordered products list is more difficult to manage than Ebay, or that you cannot see actual item or the tracking number on a shipped product from the purchased items list, but have to open the image of the sale. 

Having said that, AliExpress is sometimes able to deliver products for less than the lowest price for the same thing on Ebay, and they have some items not listed on ebay. 

If you have a problem with a vendor I find AliExpress is MORE active and more prompt in sorting out the dispute than ebay.  Not all disputes were resolved in my favor, but most were. They also have a system for you to make an offer, for example if it comes in the wrong color, you can send a picture to the seller with the item, showing the wrong color, and offer to keep the item and split the difference. I find most sellers will take you up on that offer. 

If you buy enough through the web, as I have over the years, you are going to get the wrong product sometimes, or get burnt sometimes, but not often.  If you buy a thong for $2 with free shipping don't expect Olaf Benz quality. Do expect very long shipping times, especially during the Chinese new year. 

Hating on Ebay or AliExress is like blaming the mailman for delivering the wrong color: You are focusing on the wrong party. You need to resolve the issues with the actual seller of the product.

The most recent purchases I've made have been from AliExpress. This season I have been rotating between the below styles to tan in, each of which line up nicely with my developing tanlines. All are super comfortable and supportive.

Royal Blue TM thong. Lite weight material however can become transparent when wet. Pouch size is not too bad, able to keep everything in and covered (with or without cockring, though again can be transparent when wet). Only down side, becomes a little loose after swimming.

Navy Blue Mesh Micro Thong. Nicely put together, approx 3/8" string sides. A little more on show with this one, mesh does make shape of package visible. Large pouch, which holds everything in, great with C-ring if you want everything up and out. Holds up well to swimming.

Navy Blue Slim Cut G-string. Similar cut to the above however the pouch is cut a little narrower. Great fit, 3/8" string sides. Provides enough pouch coverage with or withouf a c-ring. Holds up well to swimming

Black Bulge Pouch Thong. Similar size pouch to the Navy Blue Mesh Micro Thong, same 3/8" sides, slightly smaller 'v' at top of rear string. Great with a c-ring.

I recommend, if you are buying multiple items from Aliexpress that you request (when ordering) that they include the order number on the shipping/postage label... Some sellers will do this, but most don't seem to bother. This means that if you order an item and receive something in error, you won't know what happened as you won't be sure if it was sent in error or not.
Worse, if you order multiple items from multiple sellers at the same time you won't know which one sent you something in error. It does happen, it is very frustrating not to be able to correlate a package with an order number and seller.

In addition its worth putting a notification in your calendar for a heads up a day or two before your buyer protection runs out. If the buyer doesn't ship something before the buyer protection expires, you will have no recourse for a refund. I have in the past automatically submitted a full refund request when items are not received within a day or so of the buyer protection limit... and with few (if any) exceptions have received full refunds.

In addition, I generally don't trust sellers who ask me to wait beyond the buyer protection limit to receive something either. Although things can arrive after it expires, it is more likely IMO that they don't. My philosophy is, if they can't get it to me in what is a buyer protection interval they control, they are incompetent and should pay the price of the item.

Most of what I have ordered from Aliexpress have been low priced men's thongs... IF enough people pester me, I may highlight a number of men's thongs I have bought through ali-express that I really liked and would recommend. I have only bought a few that I thought were true beach wear - i.e. would likely be compared well to 'western' swimwear expectations for longevity and robustness. 

As an example of a nice value buy from Aliexpress I would recommend these:

They reflect my personal preference for thongs with more prominent pouches... Mostly cotton (I think) fabric, so they should hold up to some abrasion.

As someone with a 34-35 inch waist, I invariably order the XL (eXtra Large) size THONGS from aliexpress.Non cotton items generally stretch a bit more. I generally don't order the metallics or shiny pseudo leathers because I don't expect them to stretch as much either...

I am about a 32" to 33" waist and order XL or XXL if available. 
I have never heard of anyone ordering the largest size available and finding it is too loose. 

Even after ordering the largest size available some are still too snug around the waist.
As MBareAs suggests, unless you are skinny it is a good idea to stay away from metallics and faux leather as they don't stretch. 
However if you are planning on the fabric stretch to allow for fit, the thong is probably too tight to start with.

Most AliExpress thongs come in Chinese sizing, and they are a lot skinnier than us. 
Even when there is a size chart, for thongs go a size or two larger than the inch conversion suggests.

I have a section of a closet where a some of my newly acquired thongs hang, with a 10lb weight on the other side of the waist. 
With luck, after several months, the waist elastic eases up a bit.
Once they fit without grooving my body then they get transferred to the ready boxes.

(Less than 10lb and there probably will not be a change, more than 10lb and you risk breaking the stitching on lighter thongs.
although 15lb can be used on shorts or thongs with wide elastic waist bands)

Some AliExpress products have been a disappointment, some have been good.  Many are a lot more transparent than shown in the pictures. 
I suggest buying several at once, from different vendors. Like gambling some will pay off and some will not.

Wear the ones you like to SunSplash, and bring the ones you don't to donate to the lines. At SunSplash we have ropes strung between the trees like washing lines. People donate the thongs that did not fit, or they don't like anymore. Others pay a nominal amount for them and the funds go to help with the expenses.

If you are not going to SunSplash but have thongs to donate to the lines put them in a ziplock and send to me or Luvnmythong who organizes the annual event.  

Since we are doing suggestions, here is one you can wear a the beach, if you get the darker colors:

Stuff you get from Aliexpress is going to be made in China and won't be an original brand that you might see elsewhere, so you are not going to get Aussiebum, Joe Snyder etc. - just copies, of variable qulaity.

Desmiit and Brave Person both seem to be Chinese brands and are usually fairly consistent in size.  Brave Person material seems to be very thin and unlined - it will stretch quite a lot on the fabric but less so on the edges, whereas Desmiit is a thicker material and usually lined.  The outer material is quite soft, but again edges are not going to stretch that much.  

The same item will appear under multiple sellers at differing prices.

Usefully there is a feedback section that buyers may post photos to - not always a pretty sight, but helpful to see what they look like in real life.

Both the suits I got have pouches that have very little coverage, so a C-ring can really hold things together, so to speak. First off is https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/2015-Hot-Cheap-wholesale-men-s-nylon-underwear-sexy-low-waist-Seamless-transparent-nylon-sexy-men/1873879_32460300167.html?spm=2114.12010612.0.0.58064a63ANu9md

The fabric is very thin and clingy, so it shows a lot by light and shadow, but is not real transparent (I got a yellow one). I'm looking forward to wearing it this summer. The other one is more interesting: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/2017-Bikini-gay-underwear-brand-gay-thong-men-s-thong-TM-brand-low-waist-nylon-breath/1873879_32799308059.html?spm=2114.12010612.0.0.58064a63n6coKc

The picture is not quite what it looks like. It is really more like the Tangaland24 Man Bag Ouvert [ https://www.tangaland24.de/de/men/men-bag-ouvert [ , sort of between the regular and the 'Extra Small' versions. You can really wear this two ways, "Through and Out", or "Tip tucked in". The latter exposes most of the shaft, and the pouch only goes part way around things, so I don't know how much I might be wearing this to the beach. Luckily, I have a few places in mind where I'll be able to let it fly.

Wake up time!  Far above the wait times from AliExpress is eBay.  Many Chinese manufacturers of boldly expressive intimate and publically acceptable swimwear vend their products at near identical prices (via auctions or immediate sales) with delivery within a practical and reasonable waiting time.  Over the past 2 months I have purchased over 50 3D bulge thongs from a particular Chinese (eBay) manufacturer/vendor after bidding and winning auctions. I've been astounded to receive the item(s) within a week and rarely much longer.  Of course this may not be typical. This vendor places each thong in a  clear miniature ZipLoc bag. The shipping is free (at least to my destination within the southern side of the middle of the contiguous USA).  These thongs are very well made and fitted to typical North American males but only in two sizes.  S/M and L/XL.  Being that my waist size is 32 inches which is equalivent  to a medium size (USA) the S/M is perfect fit.  As mentioned in earlier posts Skinz Suffit thongs are non-accommodating in package volumn.  (The plumbing meets and or exceeds maker's standard specifications). LMAO.  AliExpress has many great and "cheap" products but lacks the guarantees that eBay offers on most of it's sold offerings.  Now that I have overly infused my wardrobe of thongs I can visit Barton Springs public pool for the course of the forthcoming summer and have a different 3D thong on each visit.  My now choice Chinese thong manufacturer makes/sells/ships/ and provides shipment tracking for less than Dore used to when I first began buying 3D thongs from her back in 2003 !!!

A few more mens thong recommendations from Ali

I invariably order size XL, noting a few vendors on AE are starting to list 2XL and up...

I am avg height for a Canuk at 5 feet 9 inches (yeah - I know we are nominally metric-ians up here!)

So onward:
Here are some mostly patterned 'suits', synthetic materials though some definitely have cotton too...
single layer fabric, likely less 'robust' than most NA grade (or at least priced) swimsuits, but the price CAN NOT BE BEAT!
In very rough order of price: -because who doesn't like it a little 'rough'?









MOSTLY CHEAPER!??? (CAN IT BE TRUE!???) Solid Colours: (Hey! In Canada-eh! we spell it 'colour' don't U know?).




For the more like swimwear and less like underwear crowd:These guys have a heavier fabric weight IMO...


And just in case you need to wear a T-shirt on the way to the beach, or perhaps an 'enhancement' aid:


Your mileage may vary, batteries not included, past experience is no predictor of future performance etc etc etc...

Oh yeah, here in the 'Great White North' Robertson rules over Phillips... (speaking of loose screw drivers!).

Invariably, with persistent searching one usually can find many items from alternate vendors for considerably less then the first vendor you find...I frequently search only for vendors that offer free shipping - noting this can omit some pretty nice looking suits!One trick is to consistently go down the 'More Products: From Other Sellers' links at the bottom of the 'Product Details' section.


The last item, is one of my favorites, given the shape conforms wonderfully to ones junk (in its 'resting state',) given the ribbed material is super stretchy and comfortable.

Best of luck fellow thong hunters!!!

NOTE about posting URL's

When you have a LONG website link, in the style of AliExpress, there is a point in the string where there is a ".html?
You don't  need to include the ? or anything that comes after the ? mark.

Example, using the link above :

Can be posted as: 

The part after the ? mark is to inform the server of other information, which might include a pointer to your personal user ID , or what website you linked from, or what web page you were looking at before.  

Some extra long links F-up the way Aimoo formats the page, and makes the rest of your post unreadable by many. So for brevity, formatting and general clarity try to only post the first part of the URL, the part that matters.

In general, I have found delivery times to the USA from Ali Express to be comparable to goods I've ordered from Europe, usually 18-21 days. A recent exception was an order I received yesterday, which I was notified had been shipped over five weeks ago. When I logged on to "Confirm goods received", order tracking showed them as not yet arrived in destination country. Another order from the same vendor a couple months ago had no such problems.

I have bought these from UM on ebay.  I didn't realize they were Asian sizing when I bought them so I ordered a medium.  The waist has stretched out to fit me.  Also losing 10 pounds didn't hurt.  The quality is better than the TM on Alliexpress. https://www.ebay.com/itm/273179225671

I have ordered a few items, and most are pretty obvious if they're going to fit well or if they're just novelty. I had high hopes for the teardrop shaped TM pouch but it does not work well for me. This is the one where the strings form a V at the top of the pouch, and the pouch flares outward making a (american) football shape. Perhaps the bag string is too long, but regardless there's no good way for this to cover all the goods. The fit is even worse when worn with a c-ring. Here's an example of the item I'm talking about: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Bikini-2017-Nylon-Low-Rise-Gay-Mens-Thongs-and-G-Strings-Sexy-Men-Underwear-Penis-Pouch/32814784274.html

brocker - I have one of those, and it fits well enough. I wonder what the consistency of cut is on these things. I agree on the length of the pouch strap. Just about every cheap Chinese suit Ive gotten seems to be cut for wearing very high on the waist, and I MUCH prefer low-rise. It really is hit or miss with these. I got one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Brand-TM-Sexy-Mens-Underwear-Gay-Penis-Pouch-Thongs-And-G-Strings-Lingerie-Men-Jockstraps-Underwear/1873879_32474150755.html and it has WAY more material at the top than in the photo. On the other hand, this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/2017-Bikini-gay-underwear-brand-gay-thong-men-s-thong-TM-brand-low-waist-nylon-breath/1873879_32799308059.html and it's just as shown. I often wonder how the original tXm Japanese versions fit, but most of them are not available in sizes that would fit westerners.

If you want to cut and paste from your word processor do not do it directly.
First paste it into notepad or other basic ascii editor so that the formatting codes are removed, then cut again. This will give you clean posts.
