Jockstrap vs Thong for Sports
Which is a better choice for sports: a jockstrap or a thong? I say it comes down to personal preference. For me the thong would be the winner.
I’ve been turned off with jockstraps, since being forced to wear them in middle school gym. Back then it was the Bike jock with the mesh like fabric pouch and thick waistband. Today there are fashion jocks and even jock briefs. Even with the improvements in the looks, neither is a style that interests me. Since I haven’t tried the fashion ones, it is hard for me to compare support of one verse a thong. If it is like thongs then it probably varies between brands and even styles from the same brand. It’s strange but I feel more exposed with these styles over a thong.
Why do I think thongs are better for sports? First off I like them better! Straps on jocks have more places of contact, which means more potential points of rubbing. A thong is going to be in one place right between the cheeks. It’s not going to be moving side to side like a jock could. Yes, with a lot of different movements with a thong it is possible to get a wedgie pull feeling. If you like to wear tighter workout clothes then a thong will give less visible lines. My other thought is a thong is more back to front, so should give better lift and support over the jock. Plus the straps of a jock are just elastic, so they can get more stretched out than a thong’s that is stitched in fabric normally.
Like I said I don’t wear jocks, so hard for me to compare. With either a jock or a thong, it is going to come down to the specific one. Some are more comfortable than others when doing certain things. It’s just a matter of figuring out the ones that are best for each activity you like to do. Guess you could always go for the jock thong and not have to decide between the two. Do you wear both jocks and thongs? Do you prefer one over the other? What’s the pros and cons of each in your mind?
