What to do with underwear with holes?

Holes in your underwear are uncomfortable and unsightly. If you have been wearing your underwear for a long time, you may have seen the holes in your underwear become bigger and bigger until you rather just not wear them anymore. There is nothing to do with holey underwear really. Okay, you can try to mend them, but the seams on the fabric will be uncomfortable and irritate the skin with every movement. 

My advice is to throw holey underwear as soon as you notice a hole. Maybe don’t panic and do not throw away pair of undies just because you have found a tiny hole. Just keep an eye on that pair of underwear and if you notice that hole is getting bigger or the number of holes increases, you should definitely say “Goodbye” to them.


This is a question that many people have asked. The answer is that men’s underwear tends to get holes because of the friction of the fabric rubbing together. If a man is wearing underwear that has a lot of friction, then the fabric will wear out faster and will create more holes. The friction that causes wear and tear is created by friction between the fabric and the man’s body. The friction is caused by the man’s body moving as he walks, runs, or does other activities. The friction can also be caused by the man’s body rubbing against his underwear.
