    Women's cotton boxer briefs?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I'm so picky.

    I have three old pairs of women's cotton boxer briefs which I just love. They are starting to fall apart. (Made by Jockey, but not anymore.) I can find all kinds of lycra/nylon/non-cotton compression shorts and boxer briefs. UnderArmor are my favorites, and I'd wear them all the time but sometimes a girl wants cotton.

    Hanes makes a women's boxer brief, but it's got a fake "fly" on it. I don't need a fake fly. For that matter, I'd just get the men's at that point as they are better made and have longer legs. I could pretend the real fly is a fake fly...

    I might end up getting the men's anyway, as I CAN'T FIND WOMEN'S!

    Anybody know where I can get women's cotton boxer briefs without faux flies?

    I don't know about womens boxers but I found mens cycling print boxers

    Ladies, the holidays are near, let the shopping begin:

    www.bicycle-gifts.com/boxer.htm

    and these "I'd rather be cycling" mens boxers could get a guy (or gal wearing them) in trouble.

    How about boy-shorts in women's underwear. Typically they are shorter than the men's boxer briefs, but pretty darn comfy. I found some made by Barely There that are microfiber that I really love. http://www.barelythere.com/style.asp?cid=2&id=31#

    I wear the Hanes and they are comfy despite the fake fly. I do wish they made a longer version of them myself.

    I like the snug long legs, which is why I was looking at the men's boxer briefs just an hour ago in a department store and caused myself some embarrassment.

    Boy-cuts are cute, but don't work on my tushie.

    www.underarmor.com the women's compression short with 4 inch inseam is my current favorite. Someone should make a spandex cotton one like Jockey used to.

    Actually, the Ibex Roaster Boxer for women is also my favorite. But they are pretty expensive and can get very warm. (with an Ibex T-shirt, they make great pajamas too)

    They are cute, but i really like the longer legs (4 inch inseam sort of thing). I might just be out of luck. At least I can still get the UnderArmor and Ibex, even if they aren't cotton.

    I tried the SmartWool Microweight Boy Brief from TE. The fit wasn't good - they tended to dig in in the crotch. I tried hiking in them, but they got relegated to hiking pajamas. Also tried some Duofold women's boxers, but they dug in in the groin. Finally decided that I'm better off without.
    Oil is good, grease is better.

    Gee, any of you old enough to remember the long underwear style that was around in the 60's?
    they would go down to your knees or almost... they were warm and cute too.
    And I'm not talking about girdles.. barf

    I wear Spanx power panties a lot but they're definitely NOT cotton. But they do keep the thighs from chafing when I do deem fit to wear a skirt.
