Fruit of the Loom® Sure Fit Review

I was very excited when I got asked to give my opinion on the new Fruit of the Loom® Sure Fit line. I am a boxer brief type of a guy and nothing drives me batty more than when my boxers ride up my leg. Annoying.  The same kind of annoying as a drippy faucet when you are trying to sleep… yep, to me, it is that bad.

When I had my “real job” I wore an undershirt everyday with my fancy shirt and tie. Well, now, my attire is a little more…. relaxed shall we say. About the only time I wear one now is when I take Mrs. CD out on the town.  At any rate, an undershirt that doesn’t stay in place is annoying too.  How annoying?? As annoying as automated phone systems.

So I went to Walmart… okay, okay, Mrs. CD went to Walmart and grabbed me the Fruit of the Loom® Sure Fit V-Neck Tee and the Fruit of the Loom® Sure Fit Boxer Briefs.  They are only $9.97 for a 3 pack,  that really has 4 in it.

This photo was taken before the shirts were washed. The fit is great. It fits good under the arms and through the shoulders too. I even tucked the shirt into my gym shorts and played fetch with Murphy. Both the tee and briefs stayed in place.

Now before you get all excited, I thought I would provide my awesome readers a great service.  Instead of photographing myself in a undershirt and boxers, I decided that Patrick, my assistant’s husband, should be the model since he is a personal trainer and all. You’re welcome….LOL. But I look pretty close to that…promise :)

As you can see, Patrick’s arms are rather large and the Fruit of the Loom® Sure Fit V-Neck Tee fits just right.

Now the photo below was taken after the shirts had been washed. As you can see, exactly the same fit. No shrinkage! I mean who likes shrinkage, LOL. The boxer briefs had the exact same results. No shrinkage, they fit great,  and do not ride up!

So there you have it. If boxers that ride up and tees that don’t stay put are driving you insane, I recommend you give the Fruit of the Loom® Sure Fit a try and have your day start happy™!

The photo above shows the before wash and after wash on the Fruit of the Loom® True Fit Boxer Briefs. As you can see, no shrinkage. However, Mrs. CD informed me I took a photo of a blue pair and a purple pair. Stupid colorblindness!

Alicewinks Interactive eBook Review

If you enjoy reading with your kids, you are really going to like this Alicewinks interactive ebook! This ebook brings the illustrations from the classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland story to life!  Alicewinks was released in celebration of Alice’s 150th Anniversary!  This ebook is a fantastic combination of the 19th century fantasy, 20th century illustrations and the 21st century technology!  Kids these days sure seem to need a lot of stimulation to hold their attention and this ebook does exactly that!  We really liked how the integrity of the classic book is completely intact but today’s technology allowed it to jump to life on the pages! This is an ebook you will definitely want to grab for your kids or grandkids!

My kids are teenagers, so a little old for this, although they still thought it was pretty cool. My assistant sat down and read this ebook with her kids, and they went nuts over it! Anything that helps get your kids interested in reading is a winner in my book!

There were several things we enjoyed about this book! For starters there a bunch of different voices reading the story, so that keeps it interesting and makes the characters come to life even more. Then the wonderful classic illustrations move around the screen while the story is being read! If those things aren’t enough there is music that goes along with the story too! This Alicewinks interactive ebook has got to be one of the coolest classic stories ever! Talk about making a book come to life! They knocked it out of the park with this one!

We’ve always enjoyed reading books together. Reading this ebook, with the illustrations moving around the pages, different voices reading the story, and the music, takes reading books to a completely different level! You know how sometimes your kids can lose interest when you’re reading a regular hard copy book? We didn’t run into that problem at all with this Alicewinks ebook! The kids couldn’t get enough of it! To be honest we’re excited to see if any other interactive ebooks like this come out.
