Today, fashion as much as comfort affects our choice of men underwear. We not only want to feel comfortable, we want to look our best. In addition to these considerations we require support for our workouts and sporting activities. There is a lot of choice out there, but how do they size up?
Most of us fall somewhere between boxers and briefs. Most of us have several different kinds of underwear boxers, briefs, perhaps something a little more daring in our drawer.
Aside from jock straps there are three basic types of underwear men can choose from: briefs, boxer shorts and tight boxers, which are briefs with extra material covering the upper thighs. According to a recent male underwear survey 54% of men prefer briefs, 22% prefer tight boxers, and 24% prefer roomy boxers. This survey seems to clarify that men do express a preference and know what they like.
Boxer briefs are practical and more comfortable than loose boxer shorts. They offer the best support and are therefore good for training, or when your circumstances require sitting-down for long periods. If you site in front of a computer all day, boxers will be less comfortable, as they tend to ride up throughout the entire day. The same goes for guys who are into sports. You can't imagine playing basketball, jogging or even sitting on the rowing machine in the gym wearing anything but a good pair of boxer briefs!
