Boxers were originally worn by prize fighters as underwear. They have square cut bottoms, and a high elasticised waistband. The length can vary from 20 to 40 cm at the side. Boxers have an advantage in that they won’t ride up. They are looser with less support, but you may forget you’re wearing them. Boxer shorts are probably the most relaxed type of undergarment to wear while sleeping. They offer poor support and are therefore not recommended for sports, or for those who remain seated entire days. When sitting down, loose boxer shorts will wrinkle along the thighs, and most of the time will result in a bumpy feeling under your pants. Wearing loose boxer shorts often gives you a wedgie sensation, because the loose fabric ends up where it is not supposed to. Boxers are best when wearing loose fitting pants like khakis.
