News flash fellas; the same thing goes through the minds of women when they see you wearing the same ratty old nasty boxers from high school. To really boost your confidence and come across as a responsible, sexy, well put together man, you gotta start wearing the underwear that women find most attractive.

The Different Types of Men’s Underwear

Just so we're clear on the different options so you know which ones to avoid, here's a quick list of the different types of men's underwear you can choose from.


Pro-Tip: For a more thorough explanation on this topic, check out our Men's Underwear Explained guide.

Boxer Briefs

Men's Boxer Briefs are the snug fit men's underwear that reaches about halfway down your thighs. They're versatile, breathable, comfortable, and most importantly, look the best.

Boxers

Also known as boxer shorts or loose fit boxers, these are baggy versions of boxer briefs with shorter legs. These are the type of underwear your dad wears - not sexy.

Trunks

Trunks are similar to boxer briefs, but have much shorter legs. They have a snug fit that gives off a feminine sexuality and display man-ty lines, not the best choice for attracting ladies.

Briefs

Commonly called tighty whities, briefs stop at the groin and have negative sex appeal. Briefs represent either immaturity or a lack of a sense of style; if you want to scare the ladies away, wear these. The only place that tighty whities should be is in your granddad's underwear drawer.

The Type of Underwear Women Find Attractive

Countless online surveys show time and time again that men's boxer briefs are the type of men's underwear women find most attractive. Women view them as undeniably sexy seeing as they're manly, stylish, and like how they accentuate thighs, a guys butt, along with other "assets".

How to Choose Attractive Boxer Briefs

There's three key things to look out for when choosing Men's Boxer Briefs that women want to see; fit, color, and design.

Fit

When it comes to finding the perfect fit, first you want to choose the right underwear size. Putting on boxers that are too tight will first and foremost make you uncomfortable, but can also make you appear less toned.


Conversely, loose men's boxer briefs can make you look sloppy or disheveled.

The right pair of men's boxer briefs should feel secure, not tight, around the waist and thighs, while also providing more support with breathing room for the boys. You can learn more about this topic in this How Should Men's Boxers Fit guide.


When it comes to fabric, women want undies that feel smooth and soft to the touch. With that in mind, choose boxer briefs with fabric made out of either cotton, micro modal, or nylon. They'll all feel great on your body, and certain nylon boxer briefs will actually feel like you're naked underneath your pants.

Color

While color does play an important role, there is no right or wrong color to wear when trying to be more stylish for the ladies. Instead, wear colors that match whatever clothes you have on.


This displays a sense of style and self-respect that she'll notice and will very much appreciate.

Design

This point is similar to color, but with a little caveat; go bold with your designs so long as they match your drip.


We dedicated the entire Expressionz line to have bold styles, women frequently write in saying they buy them for their man all the time.

The caveat here is to not wear juvenile or immature designs like cartoon characters or music personalities. These were cool and fun in middle school, not as an adult man.

"I love the new color! It’s so vibrant and eye catching! My Man has every one of the Drawlz that was launch out! I hope they continue to go outside the box and bring more outrageous prints/colors."

Girls prefer men's boxer briefs over boxers and briefs. Boxer briefs are stylish and mature while boxers and briefs are viewed as something your dad or granddad wears.

Does brand matter when choosing underwear for attracting women?
