Method 1 Getting the Right Fit

    1

    Measure your waist and hips. You’ll be able to find the proper size for your underwear across brands if you know your waist and hip measurements. Use a tape measure to measure your natural waist and the fullest part of your hips so you can choose the most comfortable size for your body.[1]
    • You can find your natural waist by bending sideways. A crease will form at your waist to help you identify it.
    • Keep the tape measure parallel to the ground when you measure your hips.

    Double check your measurements to consult sizing information. It’s a good idea to measure both your waist and hips twice to make sure that you get the same measurement both times. Once you have your waist and hip measurements, you can consult the sizing information for any underwear you’re considering to ensure a proper fit.[2]

    Look for firm elastic. No one wants to to be pulling at their underwear all day to keep it from slipping or falling down. Choose underwear that has firm elastic in the waistband so you know it will stay in place.[3]
    • While firm elastic at the waist is helpful in underwear, avoid styles with elasticized leg holes. They have a tendency to bunch up, which can be uncomfortable.

    Avoid underwear that’s too tight. Underwear that’s too tight doesn’t just lead to unflattering bulges and lumps beneath your clothing; it can also cause skin chafing and irritation from the friction. In general, any underwear that’s tight enough to leave marks on your skin is too tight.[4]
    • Underwear that’s too tight also doesn’t breathe as well, so it can lead to health issues and leave you a little sweaty.

    Check for bunching, rolling, or sagging. Before leaving the house for the day, it’s important to make sure that your undies are lying smoothly against your body. Any pair that bunches, rolls, or sags under your clothing is going to be uncomfortable because you’ll be tugging at them to keep them from pinching your skin or falling down.[5]

Method 2 Picking the Right Fabric

    1

    Look for cotton underwear. Cotton is king when it comes to comfortable underwear because it is breathable. That means moisture won’t be trapped in the fabric so your undies won’t get as sweaty and you won’t have to worry as much about bacterial and yeast infections.[6]
    • Because of the possibility of yeast infections, cotton underwear is a particularly good option for women.
    • Cotton underwear is also less likely to cause chafing or rashes.

    2

    Go with synthetic fabric for a slimmer fit. While cotton underwear’s breathability makes it more comfortable, it doesn’t always look smooth under clothing. For a slimmer, fit, opt for undies made from a stretchy, synthetic material, such nylon, Lycra, or spandex. Make sure that the crotch is lined with cotton, though, to ensure that you’re comfortable.[7]

    Save silk underwear for special occasions. Silk underwear definitely has a luxurious, sexy feel, but it doesn’t breathe as well as cotton. That means there’s a greater chance of moisture being trapped in your underwear, which can lead to infections. Only wear silk underwear on special occasions for the most comfortable feel.[8]

Method 3 Finding the Right Men’s Underwear

    1

    Go with boxers for breathability. If you tend to sweat a lot or are prone to rashes or chafing, boxers allow for better airflow. For the best fit under clothing, choose a pair that has shorter, slimmer legs and a stretch-band waist.[9]
    • Boxers aren’t the best choice if you wear a lot of slim-fitting pants, such as suit trousers or skinny jeans.
    • Boxers offer little support, so be sure that’s not important to you before choosing them.

    2

    Opt for briefs if you have larger thighs. If you have thicker thighs, underwear styles with legs, such as boxer or boxer briefs, tend to ride up during wear. That can cause rolls that show through your clothing. Instead, choose briefs to keep the extra material away from your legs.[10]

    3

    Pick boxer briefs if you have a large backside. A cross between briefs and boxers, boxer briefs offer a slim fit and more support than boxers. They are especially comfortable for a larger backside because the stretch allows them to provide more coverage than briefs do so you won’t be tugging at your underwear all day.[11]
    • Boxer briefs are also a comfortable option if you are tall because their higher waistband doesn’t slip down beneath the waistline of your pants when you bend over.

    Select boxer trunks for a slim build. Boxer trunks, or hipsters, are a shorter version of boxer briefs, which usually sit at the mid- to upper-thigh. They are a comfortable option if you have a slim build because there isn’t much bunching under your clothing.[12]
    • If you have thicker thighs, boxer trunks aren’t usually a good option because they can ride up as you move.

Method 4 Selecting the Best Women’s Underwear

  1. Image titled Choose Comfortable Underwear Step 13

    1

    Choose bikini briefs for everyday. With their lower waistline and moderate coverage, a bikini brief is usually the classic option when it comes to women’s underwear styles. They will be a comfortable option for most body types, so it’s a good everyday style of underwear.[13]

    2

    Opt for high-waisted briefs if you have a large belly. If you carry most of your weight at your stomach, underwear with a lower waistband can be uncomfortable because it may bunch and roll. Choose a high-waisted brief style, which will cover your belly so you don’t have to keep pulling your undies up all day.[14]
    • High-waisted briefs can also be a comfortable option if you are curvy or have an hourglass figure.

    3

    Wear a thong if you prefer slimmer fitting clothing. There’s nothing more annoying than tugging at your underwear to keep it from bunching under skinny jeans and other tighter fitting bottoms. A thong can be the most comfortable option because it has a barely there feel in the back that won’t add any bulk under your clothing.[15]
    • Thongs can be uncomfortable for some people, so test a pair out at home before committing to wearing them out for the day.

    Grab boy short underwear if you have a larger backside. For a pear shape body, where most of your weight is carried in your lower body, boy shorts provide plenty of coverage for a large butt. Opt for a seamless pair, and you won’t have to worry about them showing up under clothing.[16]
    • While they’re especially comfortable if you have a large backside, boy shorts work on nearly every body type.

  • Is it weird to have to press my underwear to my crotch to feel comfortable enough to wear them? It isn't a sexual thing, it is just an uncomfortable feeling when the discharge come out.

    wikiHow Contributor

    It is perfectly normal to need to adjust undergarments for this reason! However if you are experiencing a lot of discomfort due to your natural discharge, consider using a small panty liner to help ease the problem so that you can continue with your day. Many women make use of panty liners for this reason, particularly prior to menstrual cycles.

    Thanks!

    Yes No

  • Will not wearing a bra cause any problems like breast sagging?

    wikiHow Contributor

    It's actually the opposite. When you regularly wear a bra, you weaken the muscles that hold up the breasts, and that results in sagging.

    Thanks!

    Yes No

  • My underwear develops holes in the crotch. What does that happen and what type should I buy?

    wikiHow Contributor

    It's totally normal for holes or bleached spots to develop in the crotch of women's underwear. Vaginal secretions can be fairly acidic so they can wear away at the fabric or bleach dark colored undies. In general, higher quality underwear will be less likely to wear out than inexpensive pairs.

    Thanks!

    Yes No

Tips

  • To make your underwear last, be sure to consult the care instructions when you wash them. Some may be delicate and require special washing techniques.
  • Check for moisture wicking. If you sweat a lot or are in active work all day, consider moisture wicking fabric for your underwear. This type of underwear should wick away moisture and dry quickly.

Warnings

  • Always wash underwear after purchase before wearing. You don't know who has been trying them on "au naturel" contrary to fitting room regulations, and it’s a good idea to wash them to removing any residue left over after the manufacturing processes.
