Recommendations, please.

Ok, so hereís the thing..dh wears briefs. His waist is 40Ē. He has expressed displeasure at the lack of support in his underwear. I bought him some with spandex, but still, they do not give firm support like I think he wants.

Do I really need to pay $20. for one pair of underwear, and if I do, will he like it any better?

Not do be indelicate, but what kind of support? Maybe try boxer briefs? The longer legs might give him a bit more of what he’s looking for.

wear two pairs at the same time.

that used to work for us in high school,
when Somebody would forget Something
for the baseball game.

Google Kreuzer on Amazon. I do not know how many brands SO tried out and the boy shorts do the trick. Thin, stretchy, soft waist band and support where needed. Go for XXL!

For briefs, you can't beat Duluth Trading. I have been gradually replacing all of mine with Duluth (they are a bit pricey, but worth it).

Well, I've been pretty happy with regular old Hanes briefs from Kohl's. After a few years they do lose their elasticity, but at $20 for a package of 6 you can afford to replace them pretty often.

We are always happy with their products, but DH doesnít want $20. underwear. Heís test driving some Hanes with spandex and after theyíre washed heíll give the verdict.
