Both men's underwear and women's underwear serve as the support for areas that are sensitive. They also make them feel comfortable and secure, given that it was made to protect your clothes from body fluids and discharges.
Men's underwear is usually worn to support the genital area since men tend to feel some discomfort during strenuous activities like sports and work-outs; women's underwear functions both as support and as a fashion statement with their lace and ruffles.
Men have at least three kinds of underwear while women have a range of color, style, size, types, and the like. As such, we have classified the three known types of men's underwear. These are the briefs, loose boxer shorts, and tight boxer shorts or trunks.
Being comfortable, especially in the most sensitive areas of our body, is a vital factor in picking out your underwear. Choosing the right type of underwear entails being comfortable with the underwear's material and its fit on the body. Men and women would agree that being comfortable down there makes a lot of difference while going through your everyday routine. Women, for the most part, wear fashionable underwear because they want to stay updated on the current fashion trend, and partly to feel sexy. Meanwhile, men wear their underwear because of practical reasons. Therefore, men only have at least three types of underwear while women have a wide range of underwear to choose from.
Now, let's tackle the three known types of men's underwear. First, we'll discuss the briefs. According to some, men prefer the traditional briefs than any other type of underwear. Why would they choose it than other underwear? People who wear briefs know that their choice provides them with comfortable support on the crotch area than most underwear. Their thighs also do not feel uncomfortable underneath their pants or any other outer garment. Although most of men's underwear are made of cotton, there are some of which are made of silk, nylon, and polyester, among others. As such, you have to be careful in choosing the right briefs if you have any allergic reaction to other materials such as these.
Another type is the loose boxer shorts. This, according to some people, is usually used by men as their sleepwear since the blood is able to circulate more freely than when using briefs or tight boxers while sleeping.
The last in the list are the tight boxer shorts or trunks. These trunks have presented themselves to be a huge comfort for those who are undergoing training like athletes and fitness fanatics. Trunks prevent friction between the stitches of the underwear and men's private parts when they undergo intense physical activity. However, if the trunks are ill-fitted, your sensitive area would feel restrained, causing a health problem.
The buyer still has the final say on what to wear underneath his jeans. What's important is that he feels comfortable in what he's wearing.
