Men's underwear

Men's underwear refers to the types of undergarments specifically designed for men to wear. There are several different styles and types of men's underwear available, but one of the more popular types is boxers due to their comfort and breathability. They are typically made of cotton and loose-fitting, making them a good choice for everyday wear. Briefs and jockstraps are also other popular men's underwear as they are fitted and provide more support to the wearer's genitals. It is a great choice for men when doing activities that require more support, such as sports and physical activities. Boxer briefs are a combination of boxers and briefs, with the length of briefs and the loose fit of boxers. They are a popular style for men looking to balance support and comfort.

Women's underwear

Panties for women can come in even more styles, fabrics, and designs. Women's panties can be made from cotton, silk, lace, satin, and polyester. From thongs and g-strings to bras and boyshorts, there are also many types of women's lingerie for different outfit needs. Thongs and g-strings are narrow strips of fabric that sit between the buttocks and are great for women who want minimal panty lines and are often wearing tight-fitting clothing. Additionally, there are also special types of underwear that serve specific purposes. For example, there is shapewear worn by women to smooth and shape their figure and nursing bras for breastfeeding women.

How often does underwear need to be replaced?

Generally, the consensus is that underwear should be replaced every 6 to 12 months or when it becomes stretched out, faded, or shows signs of wear and tear. However, it is also important to note that factors such as frequency of wear, washing and drying method, and body type can also affect the lifespan of underwear. It is advised to regularly replace them when needed for hygiene and comfort purposes. For athletes and active people who engage in high-intensity activities and generally sweat more, it would be a good idea to change their undergarments more frequently or try moisture-wicking underwear than others. This type of underwear is designed to pull sweat away from the skin and move it to the fabric's surface, where it can evaporate. This helps keep the wearer dry and comfortable, even during intense physical activity. Moisture-wicking underwear is often made from synthetic materials, such as polyester, that are designed to be breathable and quick-drying. These fabrics typically have a special coating or treatment that helps to wick away moisture.
