|This new underwear category is primarily for boxer briefs that are designed to improve, and perform along with, your athletic output. Its main function is to add additional support to your muscles, but the exceptional wicking technology that most of these undergarments feature have made them the day-to-day choice of men of all ages. In fact, compression boxer briefs are often rated the highest in terms of customer satisfaction. Compression underwear is typically made of a Polyester/Spandex blend that makes for a lightweight and sleek fabric that works with your movements, while closely adhering to your body. As a result, it can offer some of the same benefits as shapewear, such as lower back support and a streamlined physique. |
Under Armour continues to be a leader in this field, but other brands, such as Russell and Bike, have been able to find loyal followings of their own boxer briefs. Leg lengths can vary within manufacturers, but most tend to extend down to the knee to ensure maximum muscle support in the area where most of your athletic output will be concentrated, as well as ensuring that the legs will stay in place. Compression is certainly a category that continues to grow, and with new innovations being introduced with each new season it seems that this firmly established trend will continue for quite some time.
