Las Vegas, NV (PressExposure) November 21, 2009 -- Mens underwear is not discussed by men compared to women discussing lingerie. Men know which style of underwear they prefer and not much conversation is needed.
Make it briefs
Mens Briefs are characterized by a large elastic waistband that lies on the waist. The Y-shaped front fly with approximately 4 inch of material from waist to upper thigh is the construction of this type of Mens Underwear. Full-cut briefs are typically made of cotton and are white. In contrast, low-rise and mid-rise briefs have more color and fabric options; they can be offered in varying colors and with fabrics such as silk.
Mens Briefs offer outstanding support for the genitals and is a good choice for men who sit all day. There have been design advances with Mens Briefs. In action to silk, they are also made of Lycra, chiffon and microfiber spandex. The design alternatives range from solid colors to more bold selections of camouflage, striped, "wet look", zippered, leather front and fishnet.
Another style of Mens Underwear is mens boxers. These are the loosest and unofficially described as the most comfortable of all underwear for men. Boxers are constructed with straight-cut leg openings and a front fly. The length of boxers range from 8" to 16". Boxers give limited genital support and are not a good choice when a man is physically active. Boxers have one distinction that other types of mens undergarments do not have; they can be tailored. Boxers have a wide selection of fabric and color choices. Some unique features offered in some boxers include snap-off back pocket, button fly front and even UV protection.
Thongs are another type of Mens Underwear. The construction of a thong is very minimal which equates to poor genital support. A string acts as the waistband and genital are placed in a small pouch. The comfort level of thongs depends on the man. Some men have adjusted well to this current trend while others still prefer boxers or Mens Briefs. There are quite a few creative thongs available such as leopard, skull and cross bones as well as stars and stripes.
