What Are Boxer Briefs?

A pair of good' ol underpants only elevate your look from the inside out. They are designed to match your daily grind. Eat-sleep-work-repeat, they are always there to support and comfort you. 

From using leaves to the jockstrap, your underwear has had an evolution of its own. Being the modern man (lucky you!), there are innumerable options to pick to have fun with to show your sexy self. 

And one of the underpants - BOXER BRIEFS, a favorite of many has been doing a superb job at that.

Termed as ‘one of the greatest apparel revolutions of the century,’ let us see what the fuss is all about.

Did you say Boxer Briefs?

Putting it simply!

Take a boxer, take a brief, and put them in a blender. Hell yeah! You just created a boxer brief.

Boxer briefs are a mix of the two, with the length of the boxer and the fit of the brief. They snuggle around your thighs and private parts - Comforting you in the right way. The main components include a – tight waistband, mid-thigh length coverage, a form-fitting design, and sometimes a pouch. 

They come in different colors and prints – from kinky to cute, they give your boys whatever they need. They are made using different fabrics to make them worthy of every situation you might face - from office to gym.

Oh! Did you know they are liked by the ladies too?

Featuring Boxer Briefs

Comfort – Comfort mostly depends on the fabric of the boxer briefs. Cotton is the most comfortable but it absorbs moisture. If you are an active guy look for fabric like modal, nylon, spandex, or elastane which have moisture-wicking properties and save you from allergies. They are soft as well.

Fit - This can be the best part for some, while not for others. Boxer briefs are tighter than boxers and a bit loose than briefs. The pouch and fly give you better form than boxers. With the mix of freedom and the right amount of snugness, they are perfect for your office trousers.

Stretch – This is the added benefit of boxer briefs. The stretch in boxer briefs increases their lifespan and gives ease of movement. Increased lifespan equals saving bucks, another benefit of boxer briefs. Whether you choose a cotton blend or nylon for the gym the stretch will make you move smoothly in both.

Versatility – Boxer briefs come in different prints and colors, making them as stylish as boxers. The versatility of boxer briefs makes a great companion on the beach or in the gym. The different combo of fabrics with pouch makes them great for moderate exercise.

Length – As you know, the length comes to the mid section of the thigh in traditional boxer briefs. But the manufacturers are always experimenting, which means you can find boxer briefs of different lengths. They can be close to your mane or a little above your knees. It also helps you from rubbing your thighs, cuts and chaffing.

Support - The master of support in Boxer briefs is The Pouch. It attends to your jewels to keep them in place and close to you. This is what makes them different than traditional boxers. Unlike briefs, the added mid-thigh length covers your legs and prevents chafing. The sweat-proof abilities of the fabric used can enhance the support factor.
