What Is It About Men's Underwear?

What is “Men’s Underwear”? I believe that men’s underwear is whatever undergarment a man feels comfortable wearing. It can be hot pink, satiny smooth, with a rouged back and sculpted front. They could be a simple pair of Trunks in a breathable fabric. Both are viable options. 


I have spent many years admiring the textures and fabrics of “Women’s lingerie” and wondered why there isn’t similar options for men. Why must “men’s underwear” be made of coarse cotton with multiple seams and pinch points? Body Aware has answered that question, the answer is a resounding NO. There are a multitude of styles, colors and fabrics to choose from. You can express yourself with a form fitted bodysuit, or a Lace Thong. All of these options can fit moods and occasions.

It really comes down to the fact that society has determined what is acceptable as men’s underwear and what is not. Men aren’t supposed to have pretty underwear, we are only allowed to have “functional” underwear. I don’t know about you, but I love pretty, comfortable, and functional underwear. I want to have underwear that can be viewed as sexy and makes me feel so. I want underwear that is supportive but still looks sexy.

“Men’s Underwear” doesn’t have to be boring and mundane. there are so many options to choose from now a days. The world of Men’s Underwear is not what it use to be. I hope you will join me on a journey through the different styles, fabrics, and pleasures of the new world of Men’s Underwear. We can dive into the pros and cons of different styles in different situations. Cover the pleasures of more sensual fabrics, and break the mold on what is standard for “Men’s Underwear”.

I encourage you to comment below where you would like this series to go next. What type of underwear do you enjoy wearing? What are your go-to colors in underwear? How does the perfect pair of undies make you feel?

I look forward to your thoughts!



I have to agree with the comments above , Mens underwear can be very boring , I love wearing these products especially floral shiny and cute ones , I was sceptical to start with but after I bought my first pair I loved em . I’ve been a straight guy for 50 years , but wearing these has made me question myself and my feelings and brought back feelings I had as a teenager which I suppressed , my partner of 5 years had always suspected I was gay , and just asked for honesty and openness so we had a conversation,
Thanks bodyawsre for giving me this opportunity, fun times ahead .

Men’s fashion is awful across the board. We get shorts pants. Long sleeves or short sleeves. Men’s underwear is no different in our society. Finally we have some options for pretty and sexy underwear. I originally found xdress.com first and started with bikini underwear. I have since moved to thong underwear. Sometimes that are woman’s “panties” and sometimes they are “men’s” thongs. As far as I am concerned, as soon as I put them on no matter who they were marketed to, they are men’s underwear. Now we need to start working on swimwear (swim trunks are awful), regularly clothes, and shoes!! Give us men more options!!

I am happy to have Body Aware provide different men’s underwear. Some manufacturers are getting into more risqué stuff but a lot is mainstream. You have to search for sexy underwear when it should be commonplace. XDress, Body Aware sister company, is another fun site for underwear but if your SO isn’t into Body Aware, they may not be into the next level. But, I will say that men need to open up and be more vulnerable with their SO on what they like in underwear. The glass ceiling is being shattered everyday in everywhere we look so be open and honest about your desires and your SO should support (they may chuckle a little but you have to stay straight on your desires). Who knows, it may open up more fun int he bedroom?

Unfortunately I think there is a stigma attached to men’s undies. If you wear anything other than boring black boxers or grim grey you must be weird or something. I’m very much a man’s man, or at least that’s what my wife calls me . I’ve worn body aware products since the 90’s and love the thongs and G-strings. I’ve had some great shots taken in the g-strings and people have agreed . XXL fits me perfectly . Although this can be difficult to get like shoes in a 13. I think some standard primary colors in the Gossamer string would be great. Maybe even a pack price of five . One fir each day of the working week maybe. I hope this helps.

In today’s times when everybody is fighting for equality, yes men deserve equal rights also.
Us men also should have the right to options also, options in clothes, options in fashion. Let’s face it. You’ve seen one boxer, you’ve seen them all. You’ve seen one suit, you’ve seen them all. They’re all the same. But when you start adding options, it gets more interesting. You peak more people’s interest. I personally have gotten tired of boring men’s fashions, style, and limited options. It’s boring as Fk. Yes, even men’s underwear. I say is men should have more options, more provocative for those of us that like to live in the very fast lane, and of course options will still be available for those who like to roll in the slow lane.
