Most people or men rather, always focus on what women wear underneath their clothing and if it’s less than perfect then it’s a huge turn off. I guess that may be due to the fact that we women have to wear more, but do we ever take notice of what a man wears under his clothing? No one takes the time or makes the fuss when it comes to what men wear. I’m here to change that.
With everything like shoes or maybe jeans or even hats, they are different kinds of underwear.
Let’s start with briefs. They are the typical everyday underwear for men. They are comfortable gives for complete coverage of the backside and package, but leave the upper thigh and side of leg exposed making them comfortable to wear under virtually anything. Briefs are perfect for that guy who needs the extra support but can’t deal with the excess fabric that boxer briefs or trunks give.
Low-rise Brief: Low-rise briefs sit below the natural waistline
Mid-rise Brief: The waistband of a mid-rise briefs sits at the natural waistline
High-rise Brief: The waistband of a high-rise brief sits right below the belly button, providing a more traditional fit
Boxer briefs are the perfect everyday, sports underwear. A true boxer brief will cover about half of the thigh, but many boxer briefs now cover about 1/3. They offer protection from chaffing during workouts and sports, and often are made with a moderate rise on the waist. They provide just about the same amount of support as a standard brief, and provide complete coverage.
Trunks are quickly becoming a favorite cut for underwear among men in the know. Why? A trunk cut is a hybrid of a brief and boxer brief without the heap of fabric (in other words, they’re boxer briefs with short legs and a square cut appearance). Worn with anything they offer for a different choice in underwear. With many styles where can you go wrong?
Boxers are loose-fitting underwear with no support and more ability to breath than any other undergarment. Many boxer shorts have an open fly allowing the user an exit route with maximum ease. Boxer short styles are varied, spanning from the underwear you may associate with your Grandfather, to trendier, slimmer ones. Worn everyday, causal sports or even going out.
Relaxed Fit: Boxers are traditionally slightly baggy allowing for maximum leg movement.
Slim Fit: Boxer Shorts are now available in a slim fit, which provide for a loose fit
Jockstraps offer complete frontal support and protection, but lack fabric to cover the backside. They often lift the package up and away from the body resulting in a cooler and dryer wear than basic briefs. The pouch is harnessed with two leg bands that fall to the sides of the glutes on the upper thigh and connect between the legs to the underside of the pouch. Cups can be inserted into some jockstraps for protection during rigorous activities like sparring and martial arts. NOT your everyday underwear, it is advised to wear them only for rigorous sports.
Men’s bikini bottoms, often designed without waistbands and flys, are used mostly for sunbathing and recreation unless, of course, you’re a bodybuilder, in which case they’d be used as a uniform. Gaining popularity among women in the very early part of the 20th century, bikinis are a possible predecessor of the standard brief, originally sold in 1935. Bikini’s haven’t made much progress in design for most of their history, but Sasha Baron Cohen recently made a different take on the bikini famous: the mankini. A sling bikini that stretches to the shoulders and back leaves the hips and butt bare and very well could be the future of swimwear. Maybe.
These are the basics in terms of underwear for men. In my opinion the others aren’t worth mentioning. Why would a man want to wear a a g-string?
Take into consideration men, that if you want to see your wife, girlfriend in something sexy, appealing and not a total turnoff then you should offer the same for her. No woman wants to see you in underwear with holes or that is unflattering. So now with the new found information go do the right thing!
That’s all for today folks.
Cheers to all the guys out there!!! xoxo
