You may feel uncomfortable in your boxers simply because you’re wearing the wrong size. The next time you buy boxers, buy a couple different sizes so you can try out a different size than you’re used to. The nice thing about sizing with most men’s boxers is that it is pretty standard, so sizes shouldn’t change much from brand to brand. Size small boxers are usually for guys with a 28- to 30-inch waists. Medium boxers are usually for guys with a 32- to 34-inch waists. Large boxers are usually for guys with a 36- to 38-inch waists.

There are many options for fabrics when it comes to men’s boxers. You’ve got materials like cotton, nylon, silk, Spandex, and much more. Deciding what fabric is best is based primarily on personal taste and what you feel is most comfortable. Generally speaking, silk boxers tend to be more lightweight and feel cooler when you’re wearing them, so if you’re in a warm climate, you may consider silk or cotton boxers. If you’re somewhere colder, wool boxers may be the way to go.

People say “boxers,” but they could mean briefs, boxers, or boxer briefs. If you’re looking for something that is tighter, then briefs are going to be what you want. If you’re looking for something very loose, then straight-up boxers are your friend. If you’re looking for a hybrid between the two, then boxer briefs are it. Boxer briefs are the combination of the comfort of boxers and the tighter fit of briefs.
