Men's Underwear Dos and Don'ts: A Comprehensive Guide

In today's world, underwear is more than just a basic necessity for men. It's an element of style, comfort, and hygiene. As simple as it might seem, there's quite a bit to know when it comes to choosing and wearing the right pair. In this guide, we share with you the essential dos and don'ts of men's underwear. Dive in to make sure you're making the right choices for your comfort and health.

1. Understanding The Basics

Type Matters:

  • Do choose the type of underwear that best suits your daily activities and preferences. Boxers provide freedom, briefs offer support, and boxer briefs combine the best of both worlds. Shop all of these and so much more at the main collection
  • Don't stick to just one type for all occasions. Adjust based on your needs.

Material Selection:

  • Do opt for natural fabrics like cotton, which allows the skin to breathe and absorbs moisture.
  • Don't go for synthetic materials for daily wear, as they can trap moisture, leading to discomfort.

Fit Is King:

  • Do ensure that your underwear fits snugly, but not too tight that it restricts movement or causes chafing. Our best selling King Fit is the go-to-underwear for anti-chafing. 
  • Don't wear loose underwear that bunches up, as it can lead to uncomfortable adjustments throughout the day.

2. Hygiene Habits To Follow

Daily Refresh:

  • Do change your underwear every day. It’s a non-negotiable hygiene rule.
  • Don't think skipping a day is harmless, especially if you’ve been active or sweating.

Wash with Care:

  • Do read care labels and wash your underwear separately in cold water.
  • Don't use harsh detergents or bleach, which can degrade the fabric and cause irritation.

Dry Thoroughly:

  • Do ensure your underwear is completely dry before storing. This prevents bacterial growth.
  • Don't leave damp underwear in a pile, as it can become a breeding ground for bacteria.

3. Styling Your Undergarments

Color Coordination:

  • Do consider the colour of your underwear, especially if you’re wearing light-colored pants.
  • Don't wear dark underwear under white pants. It’s not the best fashion statement.

Rise and Shine:

  • Do choose a rise (low, mid, high) that complements your outfit, particularly your pants or shorts.
  • Don't let your underwear peek out from your pants. It's not a polished look.

Patterns and Prints:

  • Do have fun with patterns and prints for casual settings or personal preferences. The Feature Fit range contains many unique and stylish designs
  • Don't go overboard. Sometimes, classic colours are the best choice.

4. Special Considerations

Workout Wonders:

  • Do select moisture-wicking and breathable underwear for workouts. For your gym sessions, Compression Shorts are a must have 
  • Don't wear cotton underwear for rigorous activities, as it retains sweat.

Health Considerations:

  • Do opt for supportive underwear if you're facing any health concerns or post-surgical scenarios.
  • Don't ignore discomfort. If something feels off, it probably is.

5. When To Say Goodbye


  • Do check the elasticity of your underwear regularly. A good grip ensures comfort.
  • Don't wear underwear with a worn-out waistband. It’s time for a replacement.

Tears and Holes:

  • Do inspect your underwear for any signs of wear and tear.
  • Don't cling to that favourite pair if it’s clearly past its prime. Letting go is essential.

In conclusion, choosing and wearing the right underwear might seem trivial, but it's a daily decision that impacts your comfort, hygiene, and overall well-being. Making informed choices can elevate your daily experience and ensure you're always at your best. And remember, as with all things in life, quality trumps quantity. Investing in good-quality underwear that fits well and meets your needs will always serve you well.
