Comfortable underwear for everyday life

Brief: the cut of the brief is very adjusted. It perfectly fits the body shapes for optimal comfort. The front pouch holds your parts perfectly and leaves them in place all day long. The brief can be presented in different forms: in a tanga brief version with beautiful side notch, in an empty bottom version cut at the back like a jockstrap or in a mini and ultra-low-rise version for a more sexy look, it’s up to you.

Boxer: The boxer is very elegant. This is the ultimate male underwear. Just like the brief, it encompasses the body shapes but still remains less adjusted and therefore more visible under clothing. Its cut which goes down on the thighs makes it possible to emphasize the muscles of the legs and to be ultra comfortable avoiding any risk of frictions. It is therefore perfectly adapted to the sports practice. The plus is that it is adaptable to all morphologies. Whether you are ultra thin or more chubby, the boxer is for you. It’s a classic and a timeless.



Seductive men’s underwear

Thong: Initially dedicated to women, thong is more and more popular in the men’s wardrobe. Its minimalist cut allows it to be ultra discreet and almost invisible under clothing. It reveals the buttocks which gives it a great seduction power and emphasizes your forms. The front is only dedicated to the pouch that supports your parts. Although considered very uncomfortable by men, the thong continues to evolve. Men’s underwear specialist brands are continually bringing new improvements for more comfort. The front pouch offers more and more space and support, making the thong popular among men.

Jockstrap: come from the sports universe, jockstrap is characterized by one front pouch placed to support your front parts and two elastic bands at the back placed under the buttocks for more roundness and push up effect. The jockstrap ensures a very good maintenance, limits frictions and doesn’t hinder the body for greater freedom of movement. Its opening at the back gives the impression of wearing nothing for an ultra sexy effect, a bit provocative. If you have doubts about the front pouch, know that you will feel as comfortable as in a brief or a boxer. The front pouch remains the same. It’s the back comfort that will be different.



Underwear adapted to the sports practice

For a good sport practice, we obviously advise you to wear briefs or boxers. The front pouch offers space, cuts provide optimal support without friction for an excellent freedom of movement. Both models are available in a wide variety of materials, colors and patterns and are offered by many brands at a varied prices. Finally, you can also bet on jockstrap. As we mentioned before, this cut was originally intended for the sport. In any case, choose a cut or a front pouch which doesn’t compress your parts and in which you feel good, with space to move.

Of course, think about the fabrics you choose for your underwear. The pouch comfort depends on it. Choose lightweight and breathable sports materials such as cotton and microfiber and more sensual and sexy materials for a seductive look.

The different shapes of men’s underwear front pouches

Pouch are diversifying, becoming able to meet the simplest needs as well as the needs of the most demanding of you. For brands, this is the asset not to neglect to convince customers.

Most men’s underwear as we know them don’t have a particular front pouch. They are fairly flat and rarely preformed, leaving little space for your assets. This is the case of many models from Emporio Armani, DIM or Diesel. The pouch meets simple comfort and maintenance needs. They will not meet the requirements of men who would look for something more specific to their morphology or their desires.

On the other hand, if you don’t like to be compressed or you like to have more space without wearing briefs or boxers with a push up system, there are more advanced front pouches. The Californian Andrew Christian proposes “basic” pouches, quite plunging, loose and worn forward for example. But you can also find men’s briefs, shortys and boxers with preformed pouch or with an integrated basket system. Front pouches that are more ergonomic to wrap and preserve your privacy as you wish.
