We know, we know: you’re not going to buy a pair of cotton boxer shorts. You’re going to go with your tried-and-true cotton boxers, or maybe even your favourite pair of silk boxers. But we’ve got good news for you: there is a difference between your favourite pair of boxers and a pair of cotton boxers that will make you feel like you’re walking on air. We’ve done the research, and we found out what it was!
According to our research, there are only two things that make cotton boxer shorts so special: moisture management and breathability. That’s right—nearly all human sweat is made up of water and salt, so if every bit of your sweat evaporates faster than it can be absorbed into the fabric of your garment, then it will leave your skin wet and uncomfortable. Cotton is known for its ability to absorb up to 100% more moisture than other fabrics, which means that no matter how much sweat you have after working out in those boxers—you’ll stay dry!
