The waistband is one of the most important aspects of men’s lingerie. It works as a foundation hence without that its impossible to attain the shape of your lingerie. The stretchable waistband is further divided into three types, one is encased elastic waistband, second is the one which is sewn inside the elastic waistband, and the sewn-on elastic waistband is the third one. The first style, encased elastic waistband is mostly found in boxers. To create this waistband, the fabric in boxers is first folded over at the waist to create a casing and when we look at its casing , will find that its elastic is threaded through it which leads to the gathering of boxer fabric. This style of the waistband is highly recommended for those men who are allergic to latex. Encased elastic comes with the biggest disadvantage which is leaving vertical red imprints on the body.
Next, we have elastic sewn inside the waistline of a men’s boxer. This way, the boxer looks like an encased waistband, but from the inside, the elastic is exposed to the body. This style gives a smoother feel on the skin and also cancel outs the vertical red imprint marks on the body. Then we have sewn on the elastic waistband that is found in briefs and other men’s underwear styles. This type of underwear is comfortable against the body and leaves red marks in lesser amount hence keeping this disadvantage in mind, manufacturers have started crafting waistbands with a microfiber or inside brushed to give a softer feel to the body of the wearer.
