Men’s Guide To Choosing The Right Underwear For Body Type

Boxer Briefs/Trunks

Every man has at least one pair of trunks in his wardrobe and that is because they are the most widely popular pair of underwear. However, they are not the ideal choice for everyone as they are better suited to men who have a slightly smaller frame.

This is because the waistband of this underwear is suited for smaller frames and may be uncomfortable for people who have a wide frame. This is why if your frame is small and you want comfort then go for trunks.


If you don't have a small or wide frame and tilt towards an average build then briefs are an ideal choice for you. This is because they are comfortable around the hips and provide the proper coverage. However, they may be too big for men with smaller frames and too small for men with bigger frames.

Boxer Shorts

The most comfortable type and best for men who have a large frame. This is because they have a lot of room and provide maximum comfort. So if your frame is wide and comfort is your priority then go for these.
