Frequently asked questions (Faq’s)
How to choose the best big and tall underwear?
Underwear Style: There are a few different styles when it comes to men’s underwear: moisture-wicking, including briefs, trunks, boxers, and boxer-briefs. For bigger individuals who have wide hips and thicker thighs, we recommend boxer briefs. These briefs offer more coverage. They are also made of stretchable fabric so that it won’t ride up.
Fabric: There are many types of fabric used for underwear. This includes cotton, jersey, lyocell jersey, silk, mesh, polyester, modal, and nylon. We believe cotton is the best since it’s both breathable and soft. Opt for natural fabric underwear such as bamboo or cotton instead of synthetic materials like polyester or lace. Natural fibers will aid in absorbing discharge and air out any odors or sweat.
Sizing: Ensure that underwear fits the waist size of your choosing. The waistband should be elastic and stretchable. In addition, it should not deform very easily.
Should underwear be tight or loose?
Choosing the right type of underwear can be crucial for health purposes. Wearing too tight underwear increases the temperature in your crotch area, causing you to sweat more. Try to find moisture wicking underwear to prevent sweat in your genital area. It should fit snugly without feeling tight. Too loose underwear can ride up, making it feel uncomfortable.
Should I size up in men’s underwear?
Underwear should fit you like a glove. If the bands feel too constricting, then it’s a clear indication to go one size bigger. If you tuck your underwear into your pants, it’s probably too big. Feel free to size up to accommodate for shrinkage due to machine wash. If the elastic bands feel tight, it may take a few washes for the elastic to stretch out.
