I have a question about underwear. I wear knit boxers and they are very spacious. I like to feel the breeze sort of thing. I'm nervous about wearing them to school because I don't want anyone seeing my private area when I'm putting on my gym shorts. What should I do? Should I switch types?


if you have something on you, pulling on shorts on top isn't going to expose yourself.

What I'm talking about is my underwear. You see there is no fabric for the middle and so it would go to one side or the other. When I put on shorts it shows, so I'm worried about that.

What you are saying is that you are wearing boxers with a straight fly, like those shown to the right. The problem is that the fly can gap open. There are several solutions. One is to put on your shirt before putting on your shorts. If the shirt is loose, it will hang down and cover you as you bend over and pull up your shorts. Another choice is to buy underwear with a button fly. These usually have a single button in the center to keep it closed. You can also add a button to your existing underwear if you have a sewing machine and know how to sew. The third choice is to buy underwear with a different type of fly, such as a pouch fly.
