Are boxer shorts good? No, they are great!
If you’re doing something active, then yes, they’ll be more comfortable than regular underwear. If you’re just sitting and watching TV, then you can let the air in and boxers will help you feel better as well.
Boxer shorts are made out of cotton, so they’re cool in summer and warm in winter. They also have a lot of venting holes that keep your legs from getting sweaty and hot. If you’re wearing them for an extended period of time, you’ll want to make sure there’s enough airflow so that your legs don’t get too hot or too cold. You can do this by rolling up the waistband about an inch or so before putting on your pants or shorts so that it sits lower on your hips and doesn’t create any tension around your waistline (which can cause chafing).
Boxers are great for travel, or when you want a little extra coverage in case you get caught in an awkward situation.
