Ladies: Have you tried boy shorts underwear?

Asked by tinyfaery (42693points) November 11th, 2016

How do you like them? Do they tend to roll down?

I find they tend to become too loose as the day goes by. It’s really uncomfortable to have your knickers shifting around all over the place under your clothes.

@Seek Do you think that’s more the material/brand or in general?

I don’t like how they feel on. I don’t like that they come down my legs. I haven’t found they roll down. I can’t remember which brand I bought.

I am not certain. Could be a bit of either or both. Cotton does ease with body heat and movement, so unless there’s a lot of synthetic in them that’s likely to happen no matter what.

I wear my son’s AE underwear boxers with the cute
little dancing bananas etc on them! I love them and
ended up with quite a few pairs as both my sons
decided at one time they were too “mature” to wear
AE anything since that is what they wore in HS!

Maybe I’ll just buy one pair to try them out.

That’s the only type that I wear, cotton only touched my privates, and material matters, so I don’t recommend wearing the cheap ones that you buy in a pack, it recommend buying the individual one’s. I have only had a problem with rolling and wedgies and them coming loose with the ones in the pack.

I’ve tried the long boy briefs, but that little flappy thing in the front made my pants too bulky. I have tried the “boys style” underwear that are similar, but made for women and I like those. Like These.

Never tried. them. I don’t plan to. Anything bigger than a thong feels like a diaper to me.

When I was down to 110 pounds they were really comfy. Now that I gained, this baby got too much back to wear them.

I’d like to try ‘em.
I did have a pair of boy’s swim trunks and I loved those things but the Borrowers evil counterparts, you know the little gremlins responsible for making your favorite items disappear got ‘em. :(

They usually curl up on my thigh. I think they only work well for very thin women unless the leg is quite long. I have some boy shirt bikinis that worked fine. I guess it was the fabric, and I was thinner when I owned those bikinis so I’m not sure if I could wear a bathing suit like that now.

I do have a couple of pairs of 100% cotton from Jockey that the leg stays down, but they are a little large on me, and terrible to wear under slacks or jeans that fit right against my body. I just wear those underwear at home with long t-shirts, that sort of thing.
