Women are constantly under pressure to look as perfect as possible, and now men are facing increasing scrutiny. When you are putting effort into looking good, it’s important to invest in quality underwear.
Why Is Underwear Important?
Most men think that underwear is a simple and small piece of clothing without any significant impact. But this is absolutely wrong. Poorly fitting underwear, as well as looking bad, feels bad. Underwear that fits properly without sagging and holes will make whatever you wear on top look better as well. Not to mention, the better you feel, the better you look.
What Makes Some Underwear Better Than Others?
Regardless of the pricing of the underwear, there are qualities which help it to stand out of the crowd. Materials that breathe, such as merino wool and cotton, feel better to wear than acrylics. The fabric should be soft and smooth, as it’s worn against the delicate skin. It should make you feel as pleasant as possible so you are comfortable all day long.
Of course, you also want to look good for your wife or girlfriend. No woman wants to have their man in threadbare, saggy, unattractive underwear.
What Are The Options Available?
Long gone are the days of white y-fronts. A variety of designs are commonly worn now and are available in a rainbow of colors and patterns.
Loose boxer shorts are generally either in satin or cotton. Loose, they allow freedom of air and body movement.
Boxer short briefs are now the most popular underwear style. In woven cotton or soft merino wool, these hold everything snug and prevent jiggling. With a thigh leg cut, these mean no visible underwear line in your trousers.
Y-fronts are the traditional kind of underwear. Offering the most support, they come in many colors.
What Is Best For Me?
Only you know what feels good to you. Some men like the airy feeling that loose boxers provide, some enjoy a snug fit. Once you have established what you prefer to wear, you can go shopping and minimize the choices you have to look through.
So now, you are educated and empowered. Shopping, whether in menswear shops or department stores, should be simple. Go and find the style and cut that you find most comfortable. Find the colors that are appealing and will look good with your existing wardrobe. Ensure the fabric is natural and breathable (you don’t want sweaty underwear). Sizing is simple, usually with small, medium, large, and extra large options available.
Then, go home, and throw out your holey, threadbare, cheap underwear. Your wife or girlfriend will thank you for it!
