Boxer Briefs


Compared to boxers, boxer briefs are relatively new – entering the market in 1990. A combination of the comfort and coverage of a boxer and the support of a brief, these boxer/brief hybrids have proven popular.

What’s more, the shorts part of the garment covers the top third of the thigh, but it is made from a material that won’t bunch. Another feature of this underwear is its freedom – tighter underwear trapped the genitals between the thighs rather than allowing freedom of movement.

Because of the style of this underwear, it can be worn under both tight and loose-fitting clothing. It also is supportive enough to wear during exercise.
