11 Things to Look for When Buying Your Briefs
Briefs Aren’t Basic Anymore
Learn everything you need to know about the most quintessential underwear silhouette – the brief. It’s a classic! We like it because both women and men wear it. Since you’ll want to express yourself in your own way, make sure to pick the one that’s right for you. That means it has to be a good fit aesthetically and comfort-wise. You’ve got to feel good in your briefs.
Let’s talk specifics. Luckily there are a variety of options out there from which to choose. Find the one that best suits you.
If showing more skin is your game, then the string bikini brief is the way to go. It will have you covered in the back and the front (that’s the beauty of briefs) but you’ll be going sideless which is comfortable and looks good too, plus it reminds us of being dressed for the beach, which is always a plus.
If you’re into the classic of classics, then the OG bikini brief is yours. It offers just the right amount of coverage and a refined aesthetic. Keep an eye out for the type of elastic waistband and the height of the leg opening when you're shopping. This can affect the comfort and overall look of the piece.
If you want to up your comfort 100% and also make a statement, then the boxer brief for women is a must. Guys were long ago treated to the comfort that the longer legged brief affords. Take what’s yours and get it! Longer leg means no “panty line” in the back and absolutely nothing around your upper thigh. It’s ironic that more fabric means it feels like you’re wearing even less, but it does!

Softness is a no-brainer. If it’s not soft, it’s got no business in your underwear drawer.
There a variety of options out there. From androgynous boxer brief cuts to more feminine bikinis, it’s important to find the ones that speak to you.
As your first layer, it’s got to look good underneath your clothes. Whether it’s briefs under a pair of your favorite jeans or your bra peeking out from the side of your muscle T, making a conscious choice about your underwear will always get you far.
Why have extra fabric and bulky seams when you don’t have to? Look for flatlock seams that lay smooth and don’t have extra fabric.
The waistband should be comfortable against your skin and not dig in. That’s why we choose special elastics that are soft, flexible, and smooth.
Pay attention, because it really matters. Wouldn’t you like to know your underwear is being made locally? It will allow you to support your community and leave less of a carbon footprint.
