We check to make sure we have everything we need before working out: the right attire, the right location, and the right pre-workout meal, but what about the right underwear? Most individuals only consider how important it is to pick the right pair of boxer briefs before working out until they get a wedgie, feel their boxers slide down, or experience the dreaded chafing.

It's easy to tell if your boxers don't fit properly all around, but selecting a pair that can withstand your rigorous workout routine is not that simple. To save you time, we've compiled a list of the characteristics you should keep in mind when searching for the best boxer briefs for sports.

Are Boxer Briefs Good for Sports?

The underwear known as "boxer briefs" is a cross between boxer shorts and briefs; it is long in the leg but has a snug fit. While boxer briefs are traditionally considered men's underwear, they are also popular among women, so you'll see them marketed for both men and women.

Boxer briefs are popular among athletes because they offer a close fit without sacrificing comfort or support during exercise. They also provide a good balance between keeping everything in place and allowing for freedom of movement. The best boxer briefs for sports are those that provide compression, sweat-wicking fabric, flat seams, and a secure waistband.

At the end of the day, it's important to find underwear that feels comfortable for your specific body shape and size.

Qualities that Make a Boxer Brief Good for Sports

When picking out the best boxer briefs for sports, keep in mind that you should look for something that won't ride up during your workout (hence why it's important to opt for shorter styles) and won't bunch up or irritate your skin. Besides, you'll want to ensure that the material is breathable and moisture-wicking so that sweat won't become trapped between your skin and fabric.

Now let's talk fabric because it's among the most important qualities regarding boxer briefs. At SHEATH, we craft our boxer briefs with a signature 92% Modal / 8% Elastane fabric blend.

Modal is a beech tree-derived semi-synthetic fabric that is incredibly soft, has a smooth, glossy finish, drapes nicely, and resists creasing. Additionally, it's antimicrobial, breathable, and very flexible, making it perfect for working out.

Once you've found a pair of boxers that meet these criteria, it's time to put them to the test! So go ahead and hit the gym to see how they fit and feel. With the right pair of boxer briefs, you'll be ready to take on any workout.
