Underwear Support: Bikinis and Thongs
There is a wide variety of support you can receive from underwear. You know with boxers you’ll be getting none. I usually list one of my reasons for liking bikinis and thongs is because of the support. However depending on different factors the support really can vary. Probably the same for any styles beside the boxers.
I like to have good support most of the time. I want something snug so I’m not moving about throughout the day. I don’t want to be squished and jammed in the pouch, but firmly held in place. You’re not going to get that from most of the mainstream men’s styles and brands from the big box stores that a majority of guys wear. I’m sure some are better than others. Hard for me to really say, since it’s been a long time since I have worn any other styles from my preferred bikinis and thongs. I can however compare the string bikini styles that I have worn from the big box stores.
The ones I got when I started my journey into bikinis were better than the Life by Jockey and Hanes one that have been offered at Wal-Mart. My favorite was Brut string bikinis from Kmart. However hard for them to compete with the non mainstream brands. I’d say that is the case for the so-called norm in men’s underwear styles too. Support in underwear comes down to the fabric and pouch design. Maybe can also include in there the strength of the elastic for the waistband.
I think bikinis and thongs still are a better choice for support over other styles. What I like about them is you have the option of varying pouch width from just enough to cover you to a full frontal coverage. I prefer something in-between, which I refer to as moderate coverage. A narrower pouch reduces any left or right movement especially in the up position. I think it is easier for these styles to have different contour pouches incorporated into them over the norm styles. Then with thongs your getting better support, because the tension is front to back with the tail between the cheeks. I feel that gives better upward lift to the package.
All of that support could be lost if the waist band isn’t strong enough to hold you up. That goes to fabric too. If it is too thin or isn’t clingy then your not going to be held nicely in place. Now for me there are times I go for less supportive pairs, but I go for support more often than not. That means pairs with lycra like blends are what I go for. I enjoy pairs that kind of mold to you.
So what are your thoughts of support? Do you like a lot, a little or something in-between? Are you a bikini and/or thong wearing partly due to the support they can offer?
