The majority of contour pouch briefs are flyless. Their design makes them being flyless somewhat necessary. A contour pouch consists of two pieces of fabric joined in the center by a contour seam. This panel is then sewn into the center front of the body of the brief. Since it is sewn in on both sides it is only natural that many contour pouches are flyless, as flies are typically located to the side of a brief’s front. For many briefs the contour pouch’s contour seam is the only seam in the design. The contour seam is a necessary feature of a contour pouch because it creates a more natural shape in the front of the brief to accommodate the male anatomy, which makes for a much more comfortable wearing experience. The contour pouch also offers substantially more support than a typical flat front brief. So, the fact that most contour pouch briefs are flyless is certainly a trade-off, but the benefits are something you should consider. The kind of support and confidence and comfort you experience when wearing a flyless contour pouch brief is worth the loss of the convenience of a functional fly-front. Everything is contained and held in place and does not shift in a flyless contour pouch brief. For peace of mind and all-day comfort you should consider the flyless contour pouch brief.
