Boxer briefs are characterized by their short leg length – typically sitting at the top of the thigh – and their elastic waist bands that rest directly against your torso. They are essentially modified swimsuits, so they’ll keep you supported and in place.
The tight fit of these underwear make them a good choice for exercise or underneath tight-fitting clothing. Their length also makes them a smart choice for men who sit all day at work, as they won’t bunch up around your thighs.
However, make sure that you buy the right size and not a too-tight option – if you buy a pair that squashes you, you could have a lower sperm count.
