Undiesfool here! I know UNBTim, The Bottom Drawer, Underweardude, and so many others at UNB (past and present) are huge fans of bikini briefs. I’m curious to know what are some of your favorite bikini briefs. Not just the brand name, but specific pairs if you can name a few. Thanks!

The Bottom Drawer: My favorite bikini is Prevail Sports string brief. It reminds me of a bodybuilder’s posing suit. The bikini has the right amount of noncoverage all around. They have a nice snug fit and holds everything in place. Good selection of colors and prints. Another bikini, I really like is Blueline Microfiber String Bikini. This isn’t a mainstream brand and nothing real fancy about it. It’s a great fit,the right amount of support, and comfort for everyday wear. I’ll wrap this up with another string bikini. Prevail Sports Rio Brief is another I like to pull out if the drawer often. A little skimpier of a string bikini cut. Another one I like the fit, color, and print selection. Great comfort for everyday wear also. The nice thing about all three pairs are they are available under $13 a pair. Hit them on sale and get them for less.

UNBSandy: My all time fav bikini. Style, comfort, look all excellent! N2N Bodywear Classic Cotton Bikini UN11. It’s affordable and not too extreme for the lockerroom! The pouch is incredible and covers my butt without riding up or bunching. Closest I’ve ever come to the feeling of wearing nothing!

Underweardude: Specific pairs..*begins rummaging through underwear drawer*..As always with me and bikinis the Ergowear X3D Bikini springs to mind, the suave edition is better in some ways and worse in others than the original. My favorite pairs that I purchased in 2016 were bikinis, the CockSox CX16N Bikini, with a pouch that is a little less pronounced than the one on the original Cocksox pair, which I like, and the N2N California Dreamin Bikini. It’s from a line that came out year or so ago, so if you don’t have one already you’ve probably missed out on this awesome pair. The fabric is great, the pattern is funky, and the pouch is supurb.
UNBTIM: Great Question Undies Fool! One of my all time favorite bikinis is the Cocksox CX01. It’s a classic and one of the most comfortable pairs I have in my underwear drawer. I have several pairs and have always enjoyed them. I am loving the new colors with accenting leg and waistbands. Also, the pouch is one of my favorites. I don’t think you can go wrong with getting a Cocksox CX01, EVER! Also, another favorite is the Ergowear Sauve X3D Vermouth bikini. It has amazing fabric that’s super soft. A great pouch for added comfort and did I mention great fabric. Lastly, it’s pink, which I love in undies.

I’ve been following UNB for some time, and was wondering if you could recommend your favorite hang free / anatomically correct briefs? I’ve seen reviews of various hang free briefs on the site before (Alex’s review of the CSX Sports Brief comes to mind), but I was wondering if you could do a consolidated post on your favorite pairs (or just email me what you recommend)?

I got a couple pair of AC Almost Naked briefs a while back, along with the CSX Sports Brief, and really would love to branch out a bit more. Honestly, after trying these, I can’t go back to non-anatomically correct pouch underwear.

I know this was a bit long, but I’d really appreciate any suggestions you folks have.


First, this question sparked our ASK UNB. I think it’s a good question as well. Ergonomically designed pouches are one of the hottest trends in men’s underwear. It’s a trend that I hope doesn’t go anywhere. I love an amazing pouches. We were asked about “hang free” pouches. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s a pouch that lets your boys hang naturally. There is no extreme pouch or lift.

One of my favorite brands over the years has been Ergowear. One pair that you should check out is the Ergowear Feel Vermouth Suave Bikini  – While the feel is not one of my favorites pouches from Ergowear I prefer the X3D pouch better. This is a more natural hang pouch from Ergowear. It still has great support but more of a natural feel. It’s not as restricting as some pouches out there.

Another company that does an amazing job with hang free pouches is Sukrew. They are still one of the new brands on the block. However, I have described their pouch as one that seems to have been on the market for years and refined. Unlike other pouches, this one doesn’t push up and show off. It lets you hang freely and feel great all through the day. This crosses all their designs. From the Sprinters, briefs, jocks and thongs. How they have done the pouch in all these is like witchcraft. If you’re a fan of briefs the Full Brief, you will like! If you buy the U-Brief, well, you won’t get any support. It has no pouch at all.

My last recommendation is anything from N2N Bodywear with the N-Hance pouch. This is a specially designed pouch from N2N. It comes on a variety of their styles. Right now is an odd time because they are closing out a lot of their underwear and a new line will be released soon. The pouch has been made in several different fabrics and styles. The briefs, especially the bikinis are made for this. Its similar to the other pouches, but hard for me to describe. Its a great mix of support and the way a guy naturally hangs.

These are my top three recommendations. There are way more pouches I could recommend. But you wanted hang free! And I think you would be happy with any of these.


The first ones to try are from the Australian designer, Obviously. They have gone all in, and their entire line is anatomical with many of their designs made of soft bamboo. Last year, UNBTim gave a rave review of the brand and it’s AnatoMAX line, saying “All the pairs I have ever owned have been amazing.”

Although not advertised as anatomical, I’ve tried the Baskit’s Energy Briefs, found the pouch to be quite roomy, and it comes in fun, attention-grabbing colors. It is made of nylon (90%) and spandex (10%), so these are perfect to wear during sweaty, physical activities.

As the reader notes, Andrew Christian, with its “Almost Naked” collection, makes anatomical cuts. But, you should also try their “Show-it” collection. They have an internal “comfy cup,” where you put your package, and as the name implies, you’ll show off more. More importantly, just like a kangroo’s pouch, your joey is lifted up and protected from potential leg crushing when you can’t (or shouldn’t) “manspread.”

Some designers have been very explicit with this design move. But, more and more designers have retooled their collection to be anatomically correct without much fanfare. I predict that this natural design may just become the new standard in menswear.
