Cotton underwear too hot to wear? Bamboo underwear is the breathable and eco-friendly option.
This summer my husband started to complain that he found his cotton underwear too hot to wear. He works shift work and works very long hours and just didn’t feel that the cotton was breathable enough. After buying several different types of underwear, the majority of his underwear is now made of bamboo.
After my husband decided to look for a different material for his boxer briefs, he first went to the local sports clothes store at the mall. They had some pretty high-tech bower briefs that looked like they were fit for a NASA astronaut.
The price was nuts; on average a pair of these breathable boxers were $30. Filling up an underwear drawer of these babies would almost be the equivalent of a mortgage payment, so he only bought a single pair. He didn’t care much for the design of the underwear and said they felt too tight. I didn’t like how they looked on him, they were just too long – I want to see a bit of my man’s leg haha.
He absolutely loves his Texeresilk bamboo under shirts, so I decided to check out if there were bamboo underwear available in the same brand. It turns out that there is. After reading hundreds of reviews online, I finally decided to buy my husband two pairs of Texere men’s athletic boxer briefs on Amazon.com.
- Odor resistant
- Eco-friendly material
My husband didn’t want to pose for a photo for the blog (you guys are probably relieved haha). Instead I have included a photo from Amazon (above), so you can see how the underwear fits.
Incredibly soft material
The material is thin, light and incredibly soft. It almost feel like there is silk in the material. My first thought when I felt the material was “Gosh, why don’t they make them for women as well? I want a pair of these!”
I love that they are made of bamboo, which is a sustainable material that is becoming more and more popular in the clothing industry. My husband says that they are so soft and very stretchy, he forgets that he is wearing them. He always wears them on the long days at work instead of the ones made of cotton. Bamboo is by far the best material for moisture wicking on hot days.
Holds up well in wash
After four months of wash and wear the first two pairs of underwear still look like new. The stitching and material is top quality, I think they will last a long time.
The sizes do run large, so you may want to order a smaller size than normal to make sure they fit. My husband normally wears large, but I took other reviewers’ advice and ordered medium. I am glad I did – the boxers fit my husband perfectly.
Perfect for travel
Because of the thin and breathable material, they dry very fast after they have been washed – perfect for travel. They pack very light and therefore do not take up much space in a suitcase.
Stays in place
There is a thin strip of elastic at the bottom by the thigh that prevent the boxers from riding up.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a non-constricting, breathable pair of men’s underwear, then you should definitely pick up some of these!
