Men’s Talk: Understanding Your Underwear


Some guys will argue that the state of your underwear doesn’t really matter. Nobody’s going to see it, they’ll tell you, please do not listen to them. Every man deserves great underwear.

What a lot of guys understand as underwear is the popular boxer shorts, most men have only the boxer shorts in their closets.  Some men who think it is less masculine to wear any type of underwear apart from boxer briefs, you are so wrong. One thing we should understand is that men’s underwear comes in many styles and materials to suit various body types and outfits. Loose styles offer comfort for lounging, form-fitting designs provide support, and sexy cuts are preferred for intimate encounters. So men don’t have to stick to boxer shorts for all occasions.

1) Low-rise briefs


This type of underwear is a slightly cropped version of the full rise Y-front briefs which cover a larger area. When choosing this type of underwear please avoid bright colors.

Who should wear this type of underwear

Men of all body types can wear low rise briefs.

2) Full rise briefs


Full rise briefs extend from the waist area right to the end of the buttocks while enveloping the sides with a Y-shape that is less prominent than smaller underwear.

Full rise briefs are bigger than their low-rise counterparts but smaller than a boxer brief which covers a portion of the thigh too.

Teenagers and guys in their twenties should ideally avoid this style of underwear if they want to be trendy and not made fun off. White is the classic color for full rise briefs.
