Your inner comfort only translates to outer vagabondage, isn’t it?
Types of innerwear — Briefs, Trunks, Boxer Briefs, Boxers – which one should you pick? In theory, these are mainly the four types of innerwear to choose from; each serves a different purpose to give you comfort. Let’s read how.
Briefs (snuggle fit)
Perfect for: Thin, fit and muscular men
With tightness as their specialty, they come with an elastic band and are perfect for when you need ample support down there. This is the type of underwear everybody knows. It’s the antithesis to boxers in every way.
Boxer Briefs (secure fit with ample breathability)
Perfect for: All body types
This men’s underwear style combines the close fit of men’s briefs with the shape of men’s boxers. You get the best of both worlds with boxer briefs. There’s extra fabric that covers more of the thigh area.
Trunks (slimmer cut than boxer briefs)
Perfect for: Thin, fit, muscular and wide-hipped men
With a tight waistband, they are a good alternative if you find that the hems on boxer briefs are
constantly riding up your thighs. Trunks are one step above typical boxer briefs in terms of fit. Provided the quality is good, they don’t lose their elasticity for a long period of time.
Boxers (looser, versatile innerwear shorts)
Perfect for: Big, fit and muscular men
Good old men’s boxers were inspired by the loose boxing shorts worn by professional boxers. And what are boxers known to be? Fit and athletic. Boxers don’t have elasticized leg openings that are meant to stay close to the skin.
