Shopping for underwear isn’t always the most enjoyable activity, but purchasing one that is not the correct pair would surely ruin your day especially if you are out or attending an important event. You would not want to spend your day feeling uncomfortable because your underwear is pinching, sagging, rolling, or rising up because that means you’ll have to keep tugging.
Once you already determine your size and you know which fabric works best for you, finding comfortable underwear isn’t going to be difficult. Knowing your body type is helpful when shopping for underwear since some styles may fit you more comfortably than others depending on how you’re built.
Find the right fit
Before you go shopping for mens underwear, you need to know your size to be able to find the right fit. Wearing underwear that is too big or little will cause the majority of your underwear issues. If the bands around the bottoms of your legs are too tight, it’s a blatant sign that you need to check the size again. If your underwear is tucked inside your pants, it is most likely that you are a size too large. Your underwear is the one item on your body that should perfectly fit you.
Find out where your sizing problems are if you’re in between sizes. Reduce the size if the legs are too big. When wearing elastic waistbands, the tightness will disappear after a few wears when the elastic stretches. Feeling squeezed on multiple levels? Scale up since you are already aware that things shrink in water, even an oversized item of clothing will fit more comfortably after a cycle in the washing machine.
Decide on the colour
White is more likely to exhibit stains than darker colours. Even though guys can wear any type of underwear, you’re best off keeping your bottoms in either black or blue since dark shades will cover up any potential problems you may encounter. Light coloured undershirts are what you should buy if you consider undergarments to include undershirts. The purpose of an undershirt is to be worn under a shirt and it should be something that isn’t going to be seen through the outer layer.
Buy a different pair for the gym
When you are lifting, your lower body needs support as well. You’ll be better off if you put a different pair of underwear in your exercise bag. Increased movement will cause chaffing and soreness in addition to avoiding torn muscles if you are wearing underwear that is not providing you with ample support.
Cotton is a breathable, practical fabric that is a no-brainer, but you’re better off choosing something that wicks away moisture, especially if your priority in the gym is to stay odour-free while wearing layers that support you.
When you go shopping for underwear, choose comfort over luxury. Don’t waste your money on underwear since they will quickly wear out no matter the price. Of course, nothing wrong with splurging on pricey underwear every once in a while, but it’s better to save wearing them on special occasions.
