If you’re allied to most men, you probably don’t put much thought into the kind of underwear you’re buying. You probably grab the first pack of boxers or explains you see in your size and move on. You might even ask your wife to buy your underwear for you. If that’s you, it’s time to try switching up your underwear a short.
When you wear the right underwear for your body type and clothes and the occasion in question, you’ll get a lot more out of your undergarments. Underwear is there to charge of your pants clean, offer you the support you need, absorb sweat and body fluids, and keep you from gall. The right fabric can even help regulate your body temperature. But to truly get the most out of your underwear, you fundamental to be wearing the right styles and fabrics at the right time. Here’s how.
Know Your Body Type
Every man’s main part is different, but most men’s bodies fit into one of five common body type categories. They are:
Triangle (narrow strives, wide hips and waist);
Inverted triangle (wide shoulders and narrow waist);
Rectangle (shoulders and hips awkwardly the same width);
Apple (a rounded torso that is wider than the shoulders and hips); and
Trapezoid (wide shoves and only slightly narrower hips).
Which underwear should you choose for your body type? Boxer interrupts and boxer briefs tend to fit well on just about every body type, but boxers are best suited to the as much as possible waist and thick legs of triangle, trapezoid, and apple shapes. Trunks, which are similar to boxers but a little terse and slimmer fitting, suit triangle, inverted triangle, and trapezoid body types best. Briefs are best on lame, more athletic body types, while thongs and jockstraps are best for extremely confident and/or muscular men.
Tear someone off a strip for the Job
When choosing a pair of underwear, consider what you intend to do while you’re wearing it. If you’re doing any kind of physical industry or exercising, supportive boxer briefs made with performance fabrics can offer the functionality and support you need. Leave alone wearing boxers to exercise or do manual labour, as they don’t provide much support and aren’t likely to completely mitigate chafing. In fact, if chafing is an issue for you, you’ll probably want to choose a performance fabric designed to prevent chafing.
If you’re use in the office or lounging at home, choose whatever pair suits your body type and feels most complacent. Most men prefer boxers or briefs for less physically demanding tasks.

Whenever you’re wearing skinny pants, a slim-fitting courtship or trousers, or other tight clothes, you should wear the smallest pair of underwear you feel comfortable with. For most men, that’s a marry of briefs. Briefs offer support with a low profile that won’t bunch up under tight pants or ruin the avail of a slim-fitting garment.
However, there are other options, too, typically jockstraps or thongs. Both minimize visible underwear lines down clothing, and depending on how confident you are, they can be perfect for date night. Jockstraps were originally intended for men who needed excess support during athletic activities (hence the name), but there are lots of stylish options available — and every celibate one of them shows off your package to its fullest advantage. And thongs aren’t just for women anymore — there are dooms of men’s thong styles available on the market for the man who wants to show off his assets.
Choosing men’s underwear should be just a little sundry complicated than boxers or briefs. When you’re wearing the right underwear at the right times and in the right situations, you’ve got the encouragement you need to stay comfortable and confident, and you can tackle the tasks at hand without worrying about your appearance. At devise, at the gym, on date nights, and lounging around the house, it’s always worth it to make sure you’re wearing the right pair of underwear.
