Comfort is the fundamental basis of any kind of underwear. Therefore, underwear will be comfortable for the owner if it has been properly selected and cared for.

The reason why your underwear is uncomfortable is most commonly the wrong size, bad fabric condition, and incorrect maintenance. You should know that wearing too small underwear causes skin bulges, and too big underwear may slide or drop from your bum. If you do not care for your underwear properly, it can quickly become deformed or have holes in them.

Can underwear be uncomfortable due to the wrong size?

Let’s start with the correct size of underwear. The most popular problem with uncomfortable underwear is the wrong size. Naturally, everyone has different, and the most common practice is buying and wearing the same size regardless of what brand they are. Maybe it’s not obvious but, every single brand has its dimensions of underwear even if they are marked by the same sizing as everyone else.

How to avoid it? Simply, always check the measurements of your future underwear in its specification before you buy. Don’t stick with the size you know o you just to wear. Your real underwear size may be bigger or smaller than your current one, especially if you are going for undies from a different brand. You can be a regular customer, and you are buying only one model of briefs or boxers all the time, you should check next time you shop if the sizing remains the same. 

What is the most common side effect of wearing tight underwear?

The most popular sign of wearing too small underwear is having skin bulges. I don’t have to explain how uncomfortable is to wear too-tight underwear, especially boxer briefs. Just imagine that the boxer leg fabric can put pressure on your thighs and restrict your movements and the waistband is strangling your waist. As a result of wearing tight underwear, you will have skin bulges and painful days.

My advice is to act instantly, if you discover that your underwear is too small for you, definitely you should throw them away. Wearing too tight underwear can lead not only to sin bulges or pain. If you will wear underwear like this for a long, you can have a problem with your fertility.

Is it bad to wear loose underwear?

You know that you should not wear too small underwear, but what about too big underwear size? So you won’t have any problems with too big undies unless you lose some weight or you have bought the incorrect size of briefs. 

First of all, wearing too-big underwear is nothing new, many guys wear them on purpose or they don’t care what they are wearing. Wearing too-big undies may manifest themselves while you walk, jump, sit, run, or bend down. Your briefs or boxers may slide or drop from your bum, and each time you have to pull them into the correct position. That can be exhausting, and for sure is not comfortable for anyone. 

In that case, you should not wear them, not only because of that they are sliding from your bum, but most importantly they are not giving you any support for your manhood. Without this comfort, it’s pointless to wear underwear because you can also instead go commando and skip wearing underwear. Is the same result when it comes to protection and support.

You may have chosen the correct size and your undies fit you just right. However, there can be something that can disturb your comfort, but it’s not a bad fit, it’s damaged. You can damage your underwear at any moment. This can happen during an unfortunate fall and also due to poor care and washing. 

Why is it bad to wear torn underwear?

Many things can happen to your underwear, especially if you are wearing them often and you are ignoring signs of wear or you are not taking care of them properly.

If your briefs or boxers have some hole in them or they are torn, there is nothing that you can do. I can imagine the discomfort of wearing underwear in that state. You should immediately throw them away.

There are many other signs on your underwear that are making them useless. I have already written an article about the time when men’s underwear has to go. If you are interested in that topic, I highly recommend getting familiar with it. That can prevent you from inconvenient moments while wearing damaged underwear. 

You should know that Men’s underwear maintenance affects comfort too.

How does underwear get holes? How can this be prevented?

Holes in underwear are normal, they can appear after some time of scratching the fabric because of itching. Holes in your undies can appear as well from wrong maintenance. 

Generally, the proper wash is key. You should never wash or dry your underwear in high temperatures. You should avoid fabric softeners and ironing. Avoid at any cost dry clean as well. Underwear is made with soft fabric that’s why you should take care of them wisely. 

I have already written an article on this topic. In this article, I am explaining what you should do and do not do with your underwear to last longer.

Improper care of underwear may cause not only discomfort but may affect your condition dramatically. A moment of inattention or long exposure to underwear to unfavorable conditions may cause irreversible consequences. After a wash they can shrink, they can have unwashable stains or the fabric can be hard and scratchy. If you encounter such a situation, be sure to throw such underwear into the trash.
