Every man has to make a huge decision when it comes time to dress each morning; boxers, briefs, or boxer-briefs? This might not seem like an all-consuming type of decision, but deciding between designer boxer briefs or cotton boxers can affect how comfortable you remain throughout the day.
In earlier times, buying underwear was much easier than it now is today. There weren’t nearly as many choices in terms of style, color, fit, and fabric. Nowadays though the options are endless. Not only are there different styles like boxers and briefs, but there are so many different designers, manufactures, funky patterns, and design features.
To help make the decision-making process a bit easier on you, check out the reasons to make the switch to boxer briefs and why it could just change your life.
First, let’s cover the differences between boxers, briefs, and boxer briefs
- Boxers – Loose fitting men’s underwear that covers the body from the waist to mid-thigh region. There are tons of varieties in terms of design and overall fit. The main drawback is the lack of support provided by boxers
- Briefs – Only cover the genitalia and leave the thighs completely bare. Great for avoiding friction from fabric between the legs and providing support
- Boxer-Briefs – A combination between boxers and briefs. Long like boxers, but instead of loose fitting fabric they are extremely fitted like briefs. Provides all of the benefits of the two
Disadvantages of Boxers
We already mentioned that boxers don’t provide much support. But in addition to that, there are a few more disadvantages to putting on a pair of boxers. Since they are loose-fitting, boxers tend to bunch much than than boxer-briefs ever would. This can get extremely uncomfortable throughout the day, especially during workout sessions at the gym.
Disadvantages of Briefs
Of course briefs offer the most support imaginable, but some men feel that they offer TOO much support. They can start to feel constricting as the day goes on. You might start to feel limited in your movement if you wear briefs all day long.
Advantages of Boxer-Briefs
Opting for boxer-briefs combines the best of both worlds. You get all the perks of boxers and briefs, but without the disadvantages we just mentioned. The main drawback of boxers is the lack of support, but since boxer-briefs are snugly wrapped around the legs, you experience added support.
The main flaw of briefs is that they sometimes give too much support, but since boxer-briefs extend down the leg you won’t feel as constricted in the genital region. They are great for wearing to the gym since they won’t bunch like boxers and won’t feel too tight like briefs.
Another added perk of wearing boxer-briefs…
We know that all of your decisions aren’t based around women (just most of them) but you’ll be pleased to hear that the ladies love a man in boxer-briefs. Statistics show that women find boxer-briefs the sexiest men’s underwear of all. So if sex appeal is what you’re aiming at, you know what to do.
