Exploring the World of Women's Boxer Briefs

When it comes to underwear, women's boxer briefs offer a unique twist to everyday essentials. Despite sharing a name with their male counterparts, women's boxer briefs are a world apart in design and functionality. These form-fitting undergarments are all about comfort, support, and keeping everything in its rightful place. Amen!

To fully appreciate the benefits of women's boxer briefs, knowing how to wear them properly and choosing the right fit is crucial. The following article will help you feel more confident in your boxer brief choice so that you can live comfortably - something all of us deserve.

How to Wear Women's Boxer Briefs

1. Choose a Fabric

Selecting the ideal fabric is the foundation of comfortable boxer briefs. When choosing your underwear, it’s essential to find a material that’s not only soft and breathable but also has excellent moisture management properties. Generally, the best fabrics are cotton or blends of spandex or elastane, as they offer a stretchy feel that moves with you and your body.

2. Invest in a Style You Like

Your choice of boxer briefs should align with your personal preferences, daily activities, and fashion sense! There are many styles to choose from, including longer boxer briefs, high-waisted briefs, moisture-wicking boyshort briefs, or slip shorts with pockets. Pick the one that makes you feel confident, cute, comfortable, and suits your lifestyle.

3. Pick a Color You Want

Underwear isn't just about functionality; it's a form of self-expression! Choose colors and patterns that complement your outfit and reflect your personality. If you’re a cheetah-loving lady, make yourself happy, and don't shy away from that funky spot pattern. If busy prints make you uncomfortable, a nude pair of women’s boxer briefs will feel just right. No matter the color, just be sure it's one you’ll be comfortable in all day long.

4. Don't Be Afraid to Try a New Style

While certain underwear styles, like thongs and g-strings, work well for many, they can sometimes be uncomfortable and don't always fit as well as you'd like.

When it comes to this new style - boxer briefs for women - you won't know until you try it! Go ahead; get your extra coverage and support. Whether you want a shorter boxer brief or a longer boxer brief, we've got you covered figuratively and literally at Undersummers.

5. Consider the Weather

While boxer briefs are an excellent choice for colder days, they may not be the best option when it feels like a million degrees outside. That is unless you wear moisture-wicking slip shorts!

Tight-fitting fabric can restrict airflow to the skin and cause heat retention, so if it is summertime, pick a boxer brief style that is not too tight. This will keep sweat from getting trapped under your clothing and keep you cool. If it’s winter, grab a thicker pair of women’s boxer briefs to keep you cozy down under.

6. Selecting the Right Size

Getting the right fit is essential for boxer briefs. We suggest you measure your hip bone to ensure a snug fit around this area. This straightforward approach helps you determine your body's perfect size.

7. Air Dry Your Washed Boxer Briefs

Let your boxer briefs air dry after a wash to maintain their shape and functionality. We want you to wear your favorite undies again and again. By letting them air dry, you allow them to live their best life and give you the perfect fit every time. 

8. Pay Attention to Details

When shopping for boxer briefs, look beyond the fabric. Consider lining, stitching, and the gusset at the bottom to minimize chafing. Seek out flat seams to prevent them from showing through your clothing. For boxer briefs that won't roll up on you, with a gusset for flexibility and cute colors to help your personality shine, try our Undersummers intimates. We know you’ll love them.

Meet our founder: CarrieRae

Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution.  Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses.  Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable.  The idea of wearing a breezy dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem:  The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wear that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.
