Is He Keeping His Options Open?

If you read this headline and wondered whether my blog veered off course from our usual topics, fear not. It’s my tongue-in-cheek way to kick start the subject of today’s post. After all, this is a lingerie blog, and not a relationship column. My focus remains in the realm of undies. So, let me ask again: Is He Keeping His Options Open? By that, I mean, does he seem wedded to only one style of underwear or open to a little experimenting? I believe variety is the spice of life, and no single style can satisfy all needs. That’s why I’ve put together my Fantastic Five of men’s underwear basics. #1 Boxers

Whatever his shape, every man looks good in boxers. It’s also socially acceptable to wear them lying around the house. Traditional cuts hang loosely from waist to just above mid thigh. Most have a functional front fly and feature a full rise with 3” inseam. Full-cut boxers are often designed with a gore, the U-shaped panel between the legs, which reduces binding. This style comes in slimmer cut versions, too, with tapered legs. These typically have side vents for mobility. #2 Briefs

#3 Boxer Briefs

The boxer brief brings together the best aspects of briefs and boxers. The fit and fly design more closely resembles briefs while offering a longer, boxer-like leg. Design issues with early versions turned some men off of this style because the legs were too tight, too loose or prone to creeping up. New designs eliminate most of these problems, so if your guy tried them once and didn’t like them, they’re worth another shot. They’re also very forgiving of less-than-perfect physiques. #4 Trunks
