Many sports underwear are based on small briefs. The underwear designer of Unitex believes that during exercise, the friction between the scrotum and the inside of the thigh is more obvious, so more emphasis is placed on the support of the pouch part. Tighter underwear has better protection for people who are exercising. Bag of scrotum underwear has become one of the representatives of sports underwear. The sports bag of scrotum underwear has a three-dimensional scrotum support design, which completely supports the scrotum and makes the scrotum protrude from the outside of the underwear to avoid friction between the scrotum and the inner thigh. The scrotum is also placed separately from the penis, the ventilation and air permeability are also good.


2. Boxer of mens underwear

The Chinese translation is boxing briefs. Both classic and practical, it is a representative of British civilian style in the history of men's underwear development. It is the loosest type of men's underwear, but when buying, try to buy a slim fit. If a pair of underwear has too much fabric, it's bound to wrinkle and protrude under your trousers, making them appear bulky. Many foreign politicians and a few business tycoons like to wear boxers, and they feel that they don't need to deliberately promote their appearance and presence.
