Maybe you are tired of all the extra fabric that comes from pouches. Tomboy is by FAR the best! Maybe you are of larger size.
There were no bondage shoes at all. The shoes in Clarks had low, stumpy heels. They were visitors from a strange world. But were they in fashion again now? Not a single magazine article had proclaimed the death of the uncomfortable shoe.
At London fashion week, models continued to wobble along the catwalk in vertiginous platforms and there had been no reports in the financial pages of the decline of Manolo Blahnik who refuses even to make wedges or Christian Louboutin.
Yet the shop seemed to be minting money. I sat down next to an exquisite Italian woman in the kind of skinny jeans that are artfully folded around the ankle, requiring the centuries of visual acuity only granted to a country of people who can wear beige without looking like a geography teacher. She carried a Prada bag, and dozens of shoes lay all around her as she kept trying on more and more pairs. Every time she cast one off, I moved them towards me. But I had to ask myself whether it is possible to wear sensible shoes when you are no longer young.
But my God, those shoes were comfortable. It was like wearing slippers. I gave in and bought two pairs: By the end of the day I had totally forgotten about them. In Selfridges, I noticed a fashionable woman surreptitiously slipping off a pair of Clarks shoes and replacing them with heels.
Out on the street, women all around me seemed to be wearing shoes that had not been in fashion for 15 years, and they were doing so in defiance of the rules, those intractable fashion rules. Young and old, they walked up and down in boots, flats, sandals, trainers and Clarks clumpy shoes.
This act of collective fashion disobedience is pervasive. Friends tell me that they keep their heels in a drawer in the office, in case they have to look smart for a meeting or a lunch or are going out after work. Women in the City have said that they need heels to look their male colleagues in the eye, but they are getting to work in flats. Few are able to negotiate public transport in the shoes that are being sold in the shops.
Wobbling on to a fast-moving escalator during the London rush-hour in 6in heels? Running for a bus? Anyway, if anyone has any advice on where I can find, or the name of loose fitting women's boxer shorts, I'd love to hear from you. I am currently hooked on longer legged boy shorts which are generally snug fitting only because they seem like the next best choice but I wan't a loose fit.
Short or long does not matter, just so long as they're a loose fit. It's annoying we have to spend a lot of money just because we want comfortable underwear I have been wearing men's boxer briefs for years. Usually Jockey micro fiber. And women's boxer briefs are impossible to find that aren't too short, too long, or completely made of cotton. I like the micro fiber, moister wicking materials. I want them to come just above mid thigh and to not roll up, AND I would like some in white also impossible to find.
SO my search continues. Thank you for your research. Who invented these anyway??? I have a very strange body shape, my boobs and hips are about the same measurments but my waist is 10inches smaller and I have no gap between my thighs. This makes any kind of bottoms hard to fit and as a result I can't wear anything that sits on my hips cause they don't stay up.
I can only wear "granny panties" but it's impossible to find anything with a long leg to wear in summer under my skirts. I'm doomed to wear bulky bike shorts which actually make me feel hotter. Hopefully I'll find something from the brands you've suggest, if not I may have to try wearing guys undies. Perhaps you should make some suitable undies, I'd pay to get them posted to Australia: Very nice article, I have been in the same predicament, have you heard of Foxers, they have a bunch of different styles that are made of soft cotton.
Spent most of this morning looking for womens boxer briefs. It's hilarious to google and find so many womyn on this same quest. Can't wait for my TomboyX to arrive. I then found GWBB; so glad to find them reviewed here.
Thank you for your research! I'm going on a cross country motorcycle trip this summer and have been searching for real, cotton women's boxers that breathe and reduce the whole rash, infection war that is so common with the polyester 'pretty' underwear that were designed to look pretty- never functional! Then again, I'd like to not have to hunt for good underwear at all.
They should be easier to find! DT, it just got cold enough for it to be necessary to wear long underwear under my jeans and over my boxers now. It's obvious there are a LOT of us who are looking for this type of underwear.
Thanks for the feedback, Phantom! I have lost some weight over the last year and need to get some new sizes and see which styles fit me the best with my new size and shape. Thanx for this read.
I was really surprised when I searched this so much would pop up. I'm going to definitely look for these brands. I took the the challenge ordered a couple pairs of boxers.. I feel ir pain.. Lol I just don't understand why it's so difficult for women to get comfortable boxers lol. Thank you for all this research. I've been considering having some underwear custom made just so I could get all cotton and no elastic in the leg band areas where it causes a rash.
Boy shorts have worked somewhat but always ride up. I don't know which I'll try first, but since I tend to stay in pajamas just to keep from wearing underwear, I'm willing to invest in whatever I can to find comfy undies. Now, if you can only find me a bra that doesn't roll, bunch, ride, etc. I tried two of the bands that you recommended. The first one was the Comfort Choice boxer briefs. They feel more like shorts and are very comfortable to wear. I also tried the GWBB ones and was very surprised at how comfortable they are.
They are shorter than the Comfort Choice briefs but they were still very comfortable under the heavy duty tactical pants that I wear for work. I had been wearing spandex under my pants, but it was hot and I started looking for something cooler. I'll buy both brands again. That's exactly what I want to hear! And the fact that I've ground tested a few pair out in your precise neck of the desert sure can't hurt. By the way, I think have a line on a style variant with some elastic around the leg hole So check back in a few weeks.
I got online today expecting to do a couple hours of research looking for the same thing and was happily surprised that this link was in the first 5 that popped up. You have done the research and test sampling for me! I now have a place to start. And I actually live in Las Vegas- those chafing thighs are not fun under work dresses and slacks. I can't wear those spanxy things unless I want a very uncomfortable rash in a very inconvenient location. Finding a product that is lightweight stretchy cotton, not bulky, long enough legs to cover thighs but short enough to not show under a dress hem, and not roll around the waist- I thought it would be an impossible task and was trying to figure out how to make my own!
Thank you for a great place to start! On-body testing is the way to go! Plus I just have some great underwear now. I finally found a comfortable yet stylish pair of underwear! Wow, I had not heard of them. I just put in an order. I'm curious to see how these do Type GWBB in the google search bar.
It stands for girls will be boys. You will love the boxer briefs they have! I just ordered some They haven't come yet.. But let me know what you think!

Briefs - these often bear the nickname "granny pants" these days, as they refer to underwear that rises to the waistline and covers the entire rear and hips. Boxers - the male style of underwear that is like a pair of shorts. These used to be just plain white old school military or plaid and baggy yay, 80s! French-Cut - this refers to women's underwear that has a very high-cut leg opening, offering a very narrow front and leaving the entire thigh crease open.
