Boxers or Briefs? Try Boxer Briefs!

Ladies’ underwear gets all the attention: big-budget commercials and fashion shows for a certain lingerie company, artistic black-and-white magazine advertisements, and even celebrity endorsements for iconic designer-brand underwear. But what about men? Opulence of Southern Pines thinks their underwear matters too!

SAXX Underwear is very popular with our customers! They are a game-changer.

SAXX Underwear is very popular with our customers! They are a game-changer.

First, let’s look at the three most popular options for men’s underwear by type:

    • Briefs – the classic “tighty whities” come in more colors than just white, although white is usually the staple. Briefs are tight and supportive, but are considered less fashionable than other underwear options.
    • Boxers – boxer shorts are loose, comfy, and cool temperature-wise. Boxers offer no support but are fashionable and generally flattering to all body types. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, which makes them a more fun choice over briefs.
    • Boxer Briefs – considered the “ultimate” male underwear, boxer briefs combine the best of both worlds. They offer the cozy supportiveness of briefs with the stylish comfort of boxers.

A recent polling from earlier this year found that 58% of men purchase boxer briefs a staggering majority over the 18% who buy boxers and 6% who buy “tighty whities” (16% opt for colorful briefs). The men polled stated that they want their underwear to be supportive, look good, and not bunch or hike up on their thighs. Boxer briefs check all these boxes and more.

Want to see what all the fuss is about when it comes to boxer briefs? At Opulence of Southern Pines, we carry Private Holdings Boxer Briefs and SAXX Underwear. Both are top-of-the-line, high quality brands that will give you exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to supportive yet stylish men’s underwear.

Pajamas Are Key to Good Sleep

Many people are aware that having high-quality, high thread count sheets makes for a better night’s sleep. But did you know that having luxurious, high-quality pajamas can also help you catch your most restful Z’s? Here’s what you should consider when purchasing the perfect pair of pajamas:pajamas-all-day-quote

Fabric Choices:

  • Cotton– This classic, all-natural fabric is lightweight, soft, and breathable, allowing for air circulation, and doesn’t tend to irritate the skin. It’s a great option for most seasons, however, it does a poor job of insulating and may not keep you warm enough if your climate experiences harsh winters.

  • Silk – This fabric is a multi-tasker: it can keep you warm when you’re too cold and cool when you’re too hot. That said, real silk is expensive and requires dry-cleaning. It also has a slippery feel that not everyone will love – but it does feel luxurious!
  • Flannel – For colder months, a pair of pajamas made from this soft and snuggly fabric is the perfect choice. The material is comfortable and provides warmth and breathability, so it can help you stay toasty without getting overheated.
  • Bamboo – This fabric, spun from fibers of the bamboo plant, feels soft and silky on the skin. A natural moisture-wicker, it keeps you at a comfortable temperature and is a great choice for those who experience night sweats. Plus, it’s hypoallergenic and may have anti-bacterial properties that are beneficial for allergy sufferers. Did we mention it’s 100% biodegradable? What’s not to love!

Types of Sleepwear & Loungewear

  • Pajama Sets – Pajama sets usually consist of a matching top and bottom, in whichever fabric and length you choose.
  • Nightgowns – Geared toward women, nightgowns are long, flowy, one-piece pajamas.
  • Robes – Perhaps they aren’t slept in like pajamas, but robes are considered loungewear as they are usually worn during that in-between time that you are out of bed, but before you change into your clothes for the day.
  • Slippers – You may not think of your feet when it comes to sleepwear, but comfy slippers are a good addition to your nighttime attire. Feet that are too cold can contribute to sleeplessness, so be sure to keep a pair of slippers by your bedside!
