The Big Man’s Guide to Underwear

As bigger men, we tend to take what we can get. Sometimes this means pants that are a little too snug, or that shirt that just won’t stay buttoned around the gut. We wear these things because we like the style and it’s all we can find. This doesn’t stop at shirts, jeans and outerwear – we can give our underwear the same treatment. If you’re like most guys, you don’t think too much about your boxers and how they fit. After all, they (usually) stretch to fit you. There are options for big and tall men who are looking for all around comfort and fit when it comes to boxers, briefs, and the like. Here are a few options you should consider next time you’re picking up new underwear.

Hanes Big & Tall Section: You know Hanes – the company that has been making underwear and undershirts for 110 years offers a men’s big and tall section. You’ll find everything from old school tighty whities, to fashion briefs, boxers, and longjohns in sizes up to 4XL. Be sure to take a look at the sweats and t-shirts also available in the big and tall section; you can always use a new shirt or two.




Rochester Big & Tall: Rochester is another company that has been in the men’s clothing game for over 100 years. With that kind of experience, you’d expect quality and they don’t disappoint. With a wider selection than Hanes and sizes up to 10XL, you can find something that fits well and looks good on you. Choose from Polo, Ralph Lauren, and Jockey boxers, briefs, tanks and more.



King Size: When it comes to big & tall men’s clothing, King Size has a little bit of everything. You’ll find underwear here you never knew existed, such as mesh breathable briefs, elastic back support boxers, and cotton/spandex compression tanks. Sizes available to 9XL.



If you want something a little more adventurous or exotic, try FreshPair. From old school drawers, to bikini briefs, to the Big Man Mesh Wonder Thong, there’s something here to support, keep you cool, or titillate. Take a look. Sizes to 50 and 4XL in select products.

There you have it – 4 resources to help you find underwear that actually fit. Do yourself a favor and take a look. I recommend boxer briefs – they allow for comfort while giving The Boys the support they need. Where do you shop? Share with us in the comments.
