How Often to Replace Men's Underwear



When should you replace your underwear?

There is no real answer to this, but most experts believe you should replace your underwear every 6 - 12 months. This can depend on how often you wear each pair of underwear, how you wash them and the quality of the underwear.


Signs that your underwear needs to be replaced:

  • Holes - It's time to say goodbye when there are holes in your underwear. Holes can happen from low-quality fabric, heavy wear or from hot machine washing.
  • Stains - No one wants stains on their underwear. This is a sure sign to chuck them in the bin. 
  • Stretched-out - This is the most common sign that isn't easy to pick up on instantly. After constant wearing and washing, the fabric will eventually stretch and you will loose the support and comfort. 



Top tips to keep your Underwear lasting longer


Wash your Underwear correctly - A lot of us are guilty of throwing our underwear in the washing machine with the rest of the washing, am I right? But really most underwear requires hand washing in warm water for best results.  

Have enough pairs of Underwear - The more underwear you have, the less you will wear the same pair constantly. So make sure you have a fair few pairs in your underwear drawer to wear daily and wash. 

Store them properly - Store your underwear safely away from any household elements where they can't be ripped, torn or stained. When they are washed, pop them straight back in the drawer to keep them nice and fresh.

Buy the right size - This seems a very simple task, but it can be just as difficult as buying the right pair of shoes. If you buy underwear that is too small, the fabric will quickly stretch or tear, and you certainly won't want to wear underwear that is too big and keeps slipping down. 



How often should a man buy new Underwear?


A man can buy new underwear whenever he wants. We say, the more, the better! But it's worth having enough pairs of underwear for 2 weeks worth just in case you don't wash them frequently. Underwear is a huge part of fashion these days, so having underwear that looks good and feels good is very important. 


We recommend investing in your underwear just like your clothing. It makes a huge difference to your overall style and look and increases body confidence. Buy underwear that you are comfortable in, keeps you supported all day and looks great on the body. Why settle for anything less?!




How many pairs of Underwear should a man own?


No two men are the same and neither are their lifestyles, but it's recommended to have at least 14 -20 pairs of underwear in your underwear drawer so you can rotate them on a 2 week basis. It all depends on your lifestyle and how often you do laundry. You may have specific underwear that you keep for going on dates, playing sports, travelling or keeping a couple for backups.  



How often should you wash your Underwear?


Underwear should always be washed after every use. Boxer shorts are in close contact with your skin and sweat, so washing them after a full day of wear keeps them smelling fresh.  

Tips for washing your underwear: 

  • Underwear is best hand-washed to make them last longer. 
  • If machine washing, use the delicate cycle or cold/warm wash for all underwear. 
  • Put your underwear in a laundry bag in the washing machine for extra protection. 
  • Never put your underwear in the tumble-dryer.
