5 Types of Underwear Every Man Needs in 2021

With so many styles of underwear for men to choose from, it can be hard to decide what you actually need. 

We’ve done the hard work for you, and compiled a list of the best mens underwear that everyone needs in 2021, and narrowed it down to 5 categories. 

1. The Classic Boxer Brief

Malebasics Boxer Brief

The first type of underwear every man should have is the classic boxer brief. This underwear style combines all of the great qualities of boxer and brief styles, maintaining support while also being breathable. 

The boxer brief is great for everyday wear, as well as physical activity. 

Trunks

Malebasics Hipster Trunk

Trunks are similar to boxer briefs, but a little shorter. While boxer briefs are longer on the legs, the hem of trunks will stop above mid-thigh, at the widest part of your leg. If you like the fit of boxer briefs, but don’t love the length, trunks are definitely a style you need to have in your drawer!

2. A Comfy Boxer Short

A comfy boxer short is an essential part of your underwear drawer. Boxer shorts are typically looser than styles like briefs and trunks, and are thus great if you’d prefer to ditch the added support for increased airflow. 

Whether you want to pick up a pair of cheap boxer shorts, or go all in with a pair of silk boxer shorts, this underwear type is a must-have. Another perk: length is up to you! If you don’t like the typical boxer short length, try a pair of short boxer shorts.

3. The 2-in-1 Swim/Underwear

There’s nothing better than buying one thing that serves multiple purposes, and that’s why a pair of 2-in-1 swim/underwear are a must have in 2021. Joe Snyder is one of the most recognized men’s underwear companies in the world, and their 80% Nylon 20% Lycra/SPandex blend makes their underwear perfect for everyday wear or poolside lounging. Not only are they comfortable, they’re convenient.

4. For Men on the Go: Moisture-Wicking Underwear

Malebasics Performance Titanium

If you’re active, it’s essential that you have moisture-wicking underwear. Whether you opt to get dri-fit or performance underwear is up to you, but this underwear type will help prevent chafing and uncomfortableness while on the go.

Moisture-wicking underwear will keep you comfortable while you’re sweating or damp, and is the best underwear for the gym! 

5. Something Sexy

Joe Snyder Lace Underwear

Last, but certainly not least, every man needs a pair of underwear that makes them feel sexy. The style that achieves this will be different for everyone, but MaleBasics’ options are extensive and bound to have something that makes you feel good about yourself. Whether you want to stay subtle with a pair of mesh underwear, be brave with lace underwear, or be bold with a jockstrap, there are tons of options for you.

The Sexiest Styles of Men’s Lace Underwear

If you have yet to take advantage of Malebasics’ exclusive line of men’s lace underwear – now is the time! Seriously, a pair of lace boxers will change your life. Soft, sexy, and supportive, there is nothing quite like slipping on a pair of lace boxers at the end of the day.

For a little inspiration, check out this list of the sexiest styles of men’s lace underwear.

Open Boxer

Boxers aren’t sexy? Think again! This men’s lace open boxer short is sure to change your perception of the ever-popular boxer. Say goodbye to flannel plaid and hello to sultry black lace. This style features the same snug-fitting cut you love in a boxer brief, but combines it with the sexiness usually reserved for thongs and g-strings. The lace offers a peek of what’s underneath, while still providing full coverage and support in the front and rear. To top it off, MOB Eroticwear’s Lace Open Boxer short features cut outs on the sides that will leave you feeling as seductive as ever.

Pouch Thong

For that barely there feeling, consider the pouch thong. This men’s thong style takes things to the next level. The soft lace fabric (available in red, black, white, hot pink, and turquoise) helps give them a sexy and romantic edge, while the triple string waistband offers a unique design you won’t find anywhere else. Another thing we love about MOB Eroticwear’s Pouch Thong? The fabric is so luxurious and stretchy, it won’t even feel like you’re wearing a thong. Seriously, they’re that comfortable!

Crossed Back Bikini

If this is your first foray into the world of sexy men’s underwear, we think the Crossed Back Bikini is the perfect place to start. This trendy style provides all the comfort of a men’s bikini, but with a literal and figurative twist in the form of the cross back. The transparent nature of the lace will already boost your confidence, but the peekaboo style on the back truly knocks this sexy style out of the park.

Mini Cheek

Think of the men’s lace Mini Cheek as a cross between a bikini and a boxer. If you’re after the support of a boxer with the fit of a bikini, then the mini cheek is for you. Plus, the mini cheek, with its slightly exposed rear, will make you feel sexy and confident all day long.

Jockstrap

A jockstrap should be part of every man’s wardrobe, but here’s why we love the lace men’s jockstrap in particular. Lace jockstraps are an ultra sexy version of the traditional style. They conform to your body shape, enhance and protect your manhood, and leave your rear fully exposed. However, unlike a thong, the lace jockstrap frames your buttocks and even lifts it up slightly, making it look better than ever. Finally, the soft as silk lace fabric fits smoothly under any types of bottoms, making it suitable for everyday wear, as well as the bedroom.

Why Every Man Should Own A Thong

Thongs have entered the mainstream of men’s underwear in recent years, to the point that the style is nearly as common as boxers or briefs. Whether thongs become part of your weekly repertoire or are only worn on special occasions or with certain outfits, there are plenty of reasons for men to rock this sexy look. And of course, there’s no brand that does men’s thong betters than Joe Snyder. Sexy and sleek, Joe Snyder Underwear are known around the world for their fashion-forward designs, made to act as both swimwear and underwear. The leading brand for sexy men’s underwear, Joe Snyder is the go-to online retailer for thongs. If you have yet to jump on the thong train, continue reading for a breakdown of why every man should own a thong, as well as a special spotlight on the bestselling Joe Snyder Bulge Thong.

Why every man should own a thong:

  1. Sexy & confident feeling

First and foremost, wearing a thong is an instant confidence booster. No matter your gender, slipping on a pair of underwear with a sexy and seductive exposed rear will give you a renewed sense of empowerment. A thong will put a spring in your step throughout the entire day, and can act as a major turn on in the bedroom. Joe Snyder’s Bulge Thong was designed to do just this, which is why the subtle design features an enhancing front pouch. If you’re looking to turn heads, this style is the pair for you. The sculpted front pouch ensures everything is held in place and looks better than ever before, while the open back exposes your best assets, leaving you feeling fresh and free. 

  1. No visible underwear lines

The minimal design of thongs means not having to worry about any pesky underwear lines. Thongs are therefore ideal when you’re at the gym and wearing tighter, performance bottoms. Alternatively, with the increasingly slim cut men’s suits in vogue today, wearing a thong to the office might be just the thing you need in order to ensure no bunching up beneath your trousers. 

  1. Prevents chafing

It’s as simple as this: when there’s no bulky cotton underwear going down your thigh, there’s no chafing. Thongs, due to their minimal fabric, eliminate the discomfort caused by the build up of sweat and moisture in this sensitive area. In addition, certain thongs, such as the Joe Snyder Bulge Thong, are made with moisture-wicking material. This Joe Snyder style is made out of a luxurious blend of polyester and elastane. The result is a quick drying and breathable pair of men’s underwear that actually promotes airflow in this area rather than blocking it.

  1. Comfort

There is a common misconception that thongs are uncomfortable. This is simply incorrect – as long as you’re wearing the right thong in the right size. Many men love wearing thongs because they find them the most comfortable style of underwear available. Other types of underwear, such as boxers, are prone to riding up, moving around, and giving you the dreaded wedgie. Thongs, on the other hand, are designed to stay in place no matter what activity you’re doing. If they’re made with the right fabric and a soft waistband, like all Joe Snyder products, there is nothing more comfortable and supportive than a thong. 

Everything You Need to Know About the New Malebasics Titanium + Collection

Titanium + has arrived!

Titanium + is the newest line from Malebasics, designed with athletes in mind. If you wish to take your workout to the next level, this is the underwear for you. The result of years of research and testing, each pair of Malebasics Titanium + men’s underwear was engineered for maximum performance. How exactly does this work, you may be wondering? Continue reading for a breakdown of the benefits behind the construction and design of each Titanium + garment. (Warning: By the end of this article, you’ll be wanting to buy a pair ASAP). 

Maximum Breathability

Breathe like never before. If you thought microfiber was breathable, you’ll be amazed by the Titanium + boxer. Titanium + combines three types of fabric into one pair of underwear to ensure maximum air flow during the most intense workouts. Each fabric plays a different yet equally important role in the design of the boxer. First, the material covering the legs and buttocks is made from nylon and lycra. This tried and trusted combo facilitates moisture release, minimizes humidity exchange, and ultimately improves breathability. The second fabric was used for the inner leg panels. These panels were created using Malebasics’ signature, ultra light microfiber, which not only provides a snug and supportive fit, but also prevents chafing and activates air flow. The third fabric, used for the nesting pouch, is perforated microfiber (more on that below, because this new technology deserves its own point!).

Perforated Microfiber Technology 

Titanium + uses never-before-seen micro perforated fabric for the ergonomic nesting pouch. This unique fabric truly takes this new performance collection to the next level. The flat lock seams on the pouch regulate temperature where you need it most, by isolating the front pouch from the legs. This allows for specific temperature control of this sensitive area. Combined with the perforated microfiber’s quick-drying properties, you can bet that you’ll remain cool and dry no matter how much you sweat.

No Ride-Up Guarantee

I don’t know about you, but my personal pet peeve is when you’re working out and your underwear keeps riding up. This is especially common during high intensity workouts like CrossFit. Malebasics’ Titanium + line solves this uncomfortable problem. In fact, the no ride-up guarantee is one of my favourite features of this new line. Malebasics added super soft and sleek leg bands to keep boxers in place. Each band prevents the fabric from riding up and bulging between the thighs, which also helps facilitate air flow. 

Each Pair is Ethically Made

With concerns being raised over the factory working conditions of some of the world’s major retailers, it’s extremely reassuring to know that each pair of Malebasics’ Titanium + underwear was ethically made. In fact, the Titanium + line was made in the company’s own factory in Medellin, Colombia under strict labor conditions. Meanwhile, the underwear was designed in Canada and tested by athletes in the United States. Thus, you can rock a pair of Titanium + boxers totally guilt free.
