My OH has just come home with a couple of pairs of Sloggi Male Tanga and some very small tight briefs (CK), he wants to try something with a little less coverage in the summer to stay cool.

I like him in boxers or hipster shorts. What are your opinions on male underwear. What do you like your man in?

My husband prefers them loose, especially in the summer. He won't wear anything that's even remotely tight during the warmer months. Maybe he'll try them and figure that looser is cooler after all.

Ha, hopefully he will come to the same conclusion, the tanga looks especially daft on him, it looks far to feminine. I am half expecting him to purchase a thong next.

Less coverage eh? Promising grin

My hubby wears ten year old boxers.

I'd like to see him in tangas!

It could be worse, ex wore Y-fronts when we first met. They may have got burned

LOL at least its not Y fronts smile.

toffeeboffin do you seriously like the look of men in Tanga's? I love the way hipster boxers look on my OH bum

Boxers all the way. Even better if they fit me too smile

Tangas would be... Unusual.

i'm not even sure what a tanga is so.....

diamogs i once had an ex who wore Y-fronts.....that soon stopped as they are awful on any man!

They have no side panels, there is an elastic band at the top and then a piece of fabric front to back, It just about covers his front and bum, but thats about it.

Ugh. Poor you op. I don't know what to say without appearing prejudiced in some way.
Suffice it to say: no, just no. Is your dh in the throes of a mid life crisis?

LuluJakey1 Wed 18-May-16 22:04:34

Oh no! My DH would not suit a tanga, not at all. He is far too much on the big side - tall and solid - for a tanga. Suits boxers.

DH wears tight hipster style trunks which look much better than the baggy boxers he wore when we first met.

He has some tangas (at least I think that's what they are from your description) which he wears under shorts when running. I take the piss but they don't look too bad.

I once had a BF who wore briefs. Ick.

Eliza22 Thu 19-May-16 14:52:13

No. Not really. But then, I'm not a chap. Boxers for me.

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Thu 19-May-16 15:03:32

It sounds like things would fall out of tangas and he would be continually adjusting himself during the day which is never a good look.

Very thin loose cotton boxers are the way to go if he's worried about overheating. He can then have some air circulating. smile

I can't imagine getting involved with a man wearing such an item. Imagine them taking off their trousers to reveal a posing pouch or thong. shock Incredibly offputting.

VenusRising Thu 19-May-16 15:36:43

He's not Borat is he!!

He may find looser is cooler, and ditch the budgie smugglers for something a little less tight.

Are you ttcing? Looser is definately better if so.... Or commando.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Thu 19-May-16 15:42:28

My dad wears tangas blush I believe they are very comfortable....

HeadfirstForHalos Thu 19-May-16 15:43:28

DH wears hipsters. He doesn't like the loose boxers, he once said it was because bits end up everywhere and he ends up sitting on a bollock when he's driving.

I don't think I'd be able to not laugh if he wore tanga style 😬

sixinabed Thu 19-May-16 15:51:49

I agree that those types of pants are vile to look at (imo), but how much say does he get in what underwear you wear?
As long as he's comfy, presumably you won't have to look at them that much?

JennyOnAPlate Thu 19-May-16 16:45:19

My Dh wore y fronts when I first met him (although in his defence he was a student and his mum bought his pants!!)

I got him into boxers as soon as I was able!

Lol the Borat comment made me laugh, I like.
