Underwear 101: boxers or briefs?

Loose boxer shorts, tight boxer shorts or briefs – what is the best type of men’s underwear? Some prefer looser underwear often seen worn by low-pant-wearing rappers, while others prefer good-old-fashioned tighty whities. Personal preference plays an important role when determining the best type of underwear for men, but below we’ve listed the biggest benefit and downfall to each.

Briefs
Benefit: Old-fashioned means practical. Unlike loose boxer shorts, briefs provide more support down below. If you’re sitting for long periods or playing sports, briefs will be more comfortable – they wrap your butt tightly and remain in place.

Downfall: As a kid, you may have thought old-fashioned Fruit of the Loom briefs were silly looking underwear, and now, well, you still think they’re silly looking.

Loose Boxer Shorts
Benefit: Loose boxer shorts are the most comfortable underwear to sleep in and they look good – most high-end brands have a line of loose boxers shorts.

Downfall: Providing poor support, loose boxer shorts are not recommended for long periods of sitting or physical activity/training. They don’t mold to your butt, and as a result, sometimes end up it – wedgie!

Tight Boxer Shorts
Benefit: Fashionable and comfortable, tight boxer shorts are becoming the underwear of choice for men across generations.

Downfall: Some brands fit better around the waist, and others around the thighs. Try several brands to determine the best fit for you.
