If you look through the social media of UNB you think a muscle guy runs the site and that’s what we publish. Well, that’s not the case, I’m more of a bear than a muscle guy. Unlike other blogs we aren’t personality-driven, we cover the industry to put out pics that brands send us. Which I love to share with you guys.

However, there are many brands that do go above 36/38 waist sizes. Some of you reading this can’t imagine having such a waist size and that’s fine but guys are all built differently. I”m very tall and will never be a 32 waist again, a 36 waist is prob the smallest that would look good on me. Currently over the last few years I have gone from 42 to 36 and then anywhere in between.

From when I first started UNB there has been an improvement in the way underwear for bigger guys is handled. Many brands such as N2N Bodywear put in XL and other brands like Junk have gone farther and added XXL. All guys regardless of size should be able to wear what they feel sexy wearing!

On Instagram I have seen a lot of guys who aren’t considered twinks or muscle guys posting on the site. There are cubs and bears sharing their love of undies and gaining followers. This is awesome to see!

I do this post because over Christmas I was looking for something to buy myself and I was limited on which brands I could shop. I do plan on going back down on the waist but regardless I want to have the same picks of underwear no matter my size.

I just needed a little rant today. I hope 2019 brings more brands doing great work in underwear for all men.

  1. Thanks for the rant! I’m a 42-44″ guy and I agree. Your blog is the best!

  2. My complaint is consistency in sizing, one brands L may equal another brands M or inversely XL. Makes online ordering from new brands a crapshoot…and at upwards of $20-$30 or more, it’s an expensive error to order and L and find it’s more of a M for a twink. And don’t start me on pouch sizing.
