The Best Underwear for Every Activity

The wrong underwear can ruin your workout. Smart athletes—like Cristiano Ronaldo—look for breathable and flexible fabrics so their skivvies won’t cramp their style or performance. Check out our round-up for four styles that get the job done.

Be More Secure

Why: Mesh zones in the crotch and back help release steam; when you move, elastic leg grips keep these cotton-Lycra trunks in place.
When: Training, cycling, yoga

Innerstatement Microfiber Trunk

Rule the Court

Why: The polyester-spandex blend hugs your business and manages your moisture. A pouch keeps your jewels stowed and protected.
When: Tennis, training, running

Jockey Sport Microfiber Active 1990 Boxer Trunk

Breath Easy

Why: Made of extra-thin microfiber, these feel more like a second skin than boxer briefs. Various ventilation zones keep your boys cool.
When: Training, running, spinning

Seamless Soft Touch Trunk

Stick it to Sweat

Why: Cotton is great for work, not so great for hot yoga. This polyester-rayon-spandex blend quickly wicks away sweat so you can stay focused.
When: Yoga, Pilates, training
