Avoiding Troublesome Mens Underwear

In a recent interview with movie hunk Robert Pattinson, he admitted that whilst filming the fight scenes in Breaking Dawn, part of the Twilight Saga, his bottom kept ‘hanging out’ of his boxer shorts. Although Pattinson blames his long back as the cause, as underwear guru’s we think it’s more likely to be ill-fitting men’s underwear.

Whether you’re filming a Hollywood fight scene or just going to the pub, there’s nothing more annoying than constantly having to rearrange your underwear. With that in mind, here are some handy hints when looking for men’s underwear that fits:

Firstly, check the size. Now this might sound very simple but as with many other fashion items, different designer underwear brands have slightly different sizing. Always check the label of the boxers or briefs to check that the size is correct for your body. Most underwear brands focus on small, medium and large sizing but some also offer extra small or extra large sizes whilst others opt to use waist sizes to ensure the correct fit.

Secondly, ensure the underwear you are wearing has a tight-fitting waist band. Designer underwear brand Calvin Klein styles feature tight, yet comfortable waist bands. But don’t rely on the waistband of a pair of boxer shorts or briefs remaining tight forever, whatever brand you buy, over time the elastic will wear and loosen so your trusty well-fitting boxers may become bottom saggers. Make sure you update your underwear regularly to avoid this annoyance.

Finally, ensure that you are prepared for underwear mishaps. If you are going to a formal function wearing black tailored trousers for example, try to wear a pair of dark coloured boxer shorts or briefs to ensure your underwear doesn’t stand out. A flash of funky pattern or colour might be amusing when relaxing with friends but at a wedding or important meeting, more contemporary underwear might be the better option.
