The Most Comfortable Men’s Underwear
Seriously, these are cloud-soft, sweat-wicking perfection.
By Rachel Cavanaugh
Buying underwear may seem like a simple endeavor, but given that it’s the first point of contact with your most delicate regions, it’s something worth putting extra thought into. One of the biggest considerations for the most comfortable men’s underwear is material.
There are tons of fabric options out there, but comfort-wise, the three best typically include cotton, bamboo, and/or modal.
The advantage of cotton is that it’s naturally soft and breathable. However, it has a tendency to trap moisture. Bamboo and modal, on the other hand, are moisture-wicking and dry quickly. Plus, they help reduce odor and bacteria. Most of the time, all three have spandex or elastane mixed in for some flexibility and stretch.
In addition to material, there are a few additional comfort features to consider:
Support: This is typically achieved through a three-dimensional cup or pouch that holds everything in place and provides protection.
Lack of friction: Underwear rubbing against your skin is a recipe for discomfort. Features like flatlock seams, covered stitching, and tag-free designs will minimize irritation.
Snug fit: It’s hard to feel comfortable if your underwear is riding up all day or requires constant adjusting. Options that stay in place and don’t bunch up are the most comfortable, along with soft waistbands that don’t roll down or fold.
To help you find the perfect pair, I researched the factors above and made a list below of the most comfortable men’s underwear. Check them out below.
The Best Overall
The lowdown: Constructed with soft, lightweight bamboo, this pair of popular boxer-briefs deliver welcome ventilation where it’s needed, preventing them from getting sweaty while simultaneously lifting moisture and drying quickly.
They have an extra-wide waistband that gives you lots of flexibility, plus a snug fit to keep them from bunching up. The cover-stitch over the inside seam makes the design extra smooth, and prevents the material from chafing. A popular choice on Amazon with more than 800 five-star reviews, they come in a wide range of colors, too.
Proof from fans: “I will never wear another pair of underwear except for Cariloha! The bamboo material is incredibly soft, breathes amazingly, and the flexibility is amazing! I am active all day long and these are without question the best and most comfortable boxer briefs/underwear I have ever worn!”
Available sizes: Small to X-Large
