|Microfiber fabric is a fantastic invention that can be as lightweight and thin as silk with a barely there feel, or just thick enough to give the feeling of sturdy support, but microfiber truly sets itself apart from all other fabrics with its unparalleled softness. The secret is in the blend of fabrics. Only the smoothest synthetics, such as Nylon, are used to create the unique velvety feel that microfiber is known for. It really is like nothing else you’ve ever worn. It’s also surprisingly durable and doesn’t exhibit pilling, even after multiple washes. |
Because of the stretchability of the fabric you’re unlikely to find a microfiber boxer brief that doesn’t have a contour pouch, but with the softness of the fabric it seems like a fair trade-off. Underwear manufacturers have also found microfiber to be a useful alternative to exposed elastic waistbands, and will often take advantage of its sleek, soft texture by making the waistband for a pair of cotton boxer briefs out of it for an extra boost of comfort.
