This post is on behalf of a lot of people, and I'm guessing it's a bit different than what anyone expected for my first post. A lot of guys have the same problem as they go through high school or college: They just don't have the confidence to wear what they want to.
So what am I trying to say? Many people are wearing boxers when they don't even want to. They'd rather be wearing something else such as the many varieties of underwear shown on this site. So here are a few tips to help you stand up for what you believe in.
Just wear it! I was nervous this year too as I would wear my briefs (and later in the year, my low-rise briefs) to gym class. The truth is, nobody should be looking at you change anyway! If they do comment, tell them you aren't afraid to wear what's comfortable rather than what "the trend" is. Also, you can wear a slightly longer t-shirt to cover up your undies if you're afraid of others seeing them. Change your pants first, and then switch the shirt. This should prevent anyone from seeing what you wear. A final suggestion (And my least favorite idea) is to wear boxers over the underwear you want to wear. I would only recommend this if you wear something like a thong. Otherwise don't be afraid to show it off!
So, the point of this message? Wear what you want to. Don't be afraid of what others say. You're brave enough to wear what you want to unlike the rest of them. I honestly think that if we all wore what we wanted to, there wouldn't be many people wearing boxers at all.
Question: What specific underwear is your favorite? Give the brand name, the style, etc.
