Underwear in brief(s)
The first thing you pull on in the morning, the last thing you take off at night, your underwear is the closest thing to your skin, the base layer of your whole outfit, so it’s important to get it right. Whether it’s men’s boxer briefs or ladies’ knickers, a pair of long johns, a vest or a bra, they’ve got to fit right, feel right and (hopefully) even make your day better!
Let’s get comfortable
Yes, for most clothing, being fashionable is important, but when it comes to underwear, style is great but comfort is definitely top of the list. We stock a range of underwear sizes from extra small through to XXL to keep everyone happy, and also a big selection of cuts and shapes, from mini briefs, to midi and maxi briefs, because not everyone is built the same.
Just talking pants
When it comes to covering your backside, your underwear cut is king... or queen! While some of us like a low cut hipster style, for others it has to be a fuller brief that sits smoothly across your waistline rather than under it. And then next comes the leg length. Go minimal with a thong. Choose a leg-lengthening high cut, like a tanga, bikini or Brazilian, or go for more coverage with a maxi brief or boxer, also known as boy shorts. You could even opt for the fullest of coverage and go for long johns!
Lacy or plain? Tight or loose fit?
Fill your underwear drawers, because we’ve a warehouse full of choice!
Pretty through to practical, we’ve got you covered. While women generally want a luxurious look and smooth, comfortable fit from their knickers, men look for support and convenience, choosing between stretch fit briefs, button fly fronted styles and y-fronts, and loose-fitting classic cotton boxers. From plain block colour briefs to patterned pants, striped shorts and novelty knickers, there is an-almost endless array of underwear designs.
Show what you’re made of
Material choices are important in underwear. Most fabrics for underwear are designed for softness, with some even feeling silky, or lacy. Bamboo and cotton briefs will keep you cool, and some sports shorts styles use performance fabrics that can wick away sweat quickly. At the other end of the scale, fleece-lined thermal tops and bottoms can make sure you stay warm, indoors or outdoors, when temperatures plummet. Microfibre underwear can be made without seams for an invisible look that feels like your own skin. And, just a few words about shapewear - the underwear that makes your curves correct and bumps barely there - why shouldn’t you look your best? If those added control panels make you look like a million dollars, what’s a few pounds between friends?
