A jockstrap is a piece of clothing that many people don’t know the purpose of. In this blog post, we’ll tell you what it is and how to wear one. Jockstraps are typically worn by athletes who participate in sports such as football, wrestling or lacrosse. It’s a strap that goes around the waist and provides support for the genitals during physical activity. A jockstrap can also be used for guys who have problems with their bladder control while they’re sleeping at night.
The most common type of jockstrap is really just fabric sewed together into a belt shape on three sides and then open on the side where it covers your private parts (usually made out of cotton).
Jockstraps are useful for men who want to avoid the hazards of “free ranging” and reduce chafing. Men with a fragile masculinity may wear jockstraps under boxer shorts to reduce the risk of chafing and avoid injury.
In response to this demand for more supportive undergarments, men’s underwear manufacturers have introduced jockey-style underwear. These tight boxer briefs are designed with a pouch that is meant to accommodate male genitalia and provide support when sitting or wearing physical activity clothing such as bike shorts.
If it’s breathable, supportive and comfortable underwear you’re looking for then the new modern jockey briefs are what your searching for.
So-called tighty whiteys have been popular for centuries. These briefs, typically made of cotton and with an elastic band to prevent the garment from riding down during wear, provide full coverage in front and back as well as some added support usually found in traditional jockstraps.
