As far as all-day comfort is concerned, investing in the right pair of underwear is the most outstanding make-or-break factor. For men, especially, always needing to adjust throughout the day is a problem that can make you a bit self-conscious. With this in mind, it’s important to scope out the most comfortable men’s underwear to keep everything in place all day.

While there are countless men’s underwear brands that are comfortable, soft and breathable, only a handful maintain the right amount of support you need from the moment you put them on to the moment you take them off.

To make your shopping experience easier, we’ve listed eight of the best options below from brands we know and trust. From Shinesty’s Black Ball Hammouch Pouch Underwear that comes with a pouch at the crotch to prevent the family jewels from getting crushed throughout the day to the cult-favorite Hanes underwear that surprisingly provides more support than expected, we’ve covered all bases.
