Womens Cotton Boxer Shorts

Women have reached a point where all that matters is comfort. We are no more the classic ladies from the 80s who wore corsets to fit in dresses and torture their bodies to look what they were not. The same can be said about women’s underpants. Girls were laughed upon for wearing boy shorts as a dress in the 19th century. On the contrary, today women’s boxer briefs and Cotton Boy Shorts Underwearare the most preferred underpants by women.

Even so, there are still some percentage of women out there who choose thongs over the comfort of boxer briefs and cotton boy shirts. However, they are the ones who mustn’t have tried these men shorts, Hade they have, thongs would be the last thing they would think. To such ladies, we would recommend to try out women’s boxer briefs from Vlez and check out the luxury of wearing it. It is however, crucial to know what things to consider while buying boxers and boy shorts for yourselves.

We have enlisted some of the basic, yet important points to keep in mind while you shop for these ultra comfortable underwear. Let’s have a look!

1. Fabric of the underwear

Women’s boxers were inspired by men’s boxers which were initially made from the same cloth with which their shirts were tailored. Thankfully, we have a great number of options to choose from when it comes to fabric of the underwear. The basic difference between boxers and boy shorts is that the former is a bit loose while the latter is a body hugging underwear. Boxers being loose, they are generally not made from elastane. Boxers are a much appreciated pick for light wear among women for its comfort.

Boy shorts is a feminine version of boxers as they too are seamless, but have a body hugging fit. With always some percentage of a stretchable material needed in its making, boy shorts are highly found in lace and lycra. Choosing lycra over other materials gives you a benefit of staying cool with its moisture wicking technology at its work. Sports brands have researched and developed special materials using enhanced technologies for boy shorts which is highly breathable and suitable for women during workout session.

2. Align your choice with the outfit

The most relieving thing about boy shorts is that it helps us from the showcase of panty lines and can be worn under tight clothes as it fights tightly around the hips. Boxers on the other hand can not be worn under tight as well as short clothes such as skirts because of its loose fitting. A gust of wind could ruin the grace of your short dress by displaying the baggy boxers and may also alter your dress’s look. Thus, make boxers your night companion or wear under loose jeans to enjoy the ultimate comfort.

Although boy shorts is a perfect pick for tight and short dresses, make sure you don’t wear it under ultra tight fitting leggings. Also, take care of the color you pick to wear, it should match your dress to give a camouflaging effect in case of accidental show. Align your choice of underwear with the type, color, and length of your outfit to nail the look and comfort of boy shorts and boxers.

3. The right size according to your body shape

Body shape may not play a crucial role while choosing boxers because of its loose fit. You just have to pick the right size and you are ready to go. However, while buying body fitting boy shorts, you cannot ignore the proportional ratio of your thighs, waist and hips. For an instance, having a slender upper body including waist, but heavy thighs create a dilemma for women. Choosing a shorter size could be a better pick in this case. Sizes may be available in different dimensions depending on the country you live in. Make sure you pick the correct size as it is all that matters when you are pursuing only comfort.

In all, it is not an easy job to pick perfect boxer briefs and boyshorts underwear for women. Make sure you consider these things before you make a purchase. If in confusion, visit Vlez, a lingerie brand that only sells comfortable underwears.

Boyshorts and Girltrunks 102: Your Queer Underwear Guide

patterns and colors

Welcome to Underwear Week, a whole week dedicated to your favorite bum-hugging clothesthings. As we said many moons ago, we feel a lady is at her best when she’s not wearing pants. And while our last adventure around this neck of the woods took us only as far as boyshorts, this time around we’re exploring the vast and many-flavored land of underwear. From edible panties to hoopskirts and history, we’ve got you covered. Just like your underwear.

underwear week

You’re going to see a lot of underpants guides this week catered to specific body types or gender identities: a femme underwear guide, a masculine-of-center underwear guide, a plus-size underwear guide and so forth. This isn’t one of those guides, because my body type is already over-represented in fashion and I don’t have a strong sense of a fashion-relevant gender identity beyond my gender and sexual orientation. I’m just a queer girl who loves makeup and mens boxer-briefs, you know? You won’t find flowers or lace in my underwear drawer, but you’re also unlikely to find anything my butch girlfriend would be caught dead in. Oh and, there’s a lot of underwear in my underwear drawer because I’m obsessed with underwear. In fact, the idea of Underwear Week began when I suggested we do an update of our Boyshorts 101 post from 2009. We’re just all sitting here thinking about your inner thighs, basically.

So, today we’re gonna talk about my favorite style of underwear which falls under the loosely-defined definition of “boyshort” and is extremely popular within the queer-lady population.

I officially transitioned from thongs to boyshorts eight years ago (a sexual orientation switch occurred around the same time, suspiciously) and since then have seen my favorite brands and styles get discontinued again and again, or redesigned to totally suck, probably because of the patriarchy or else because of “how the fashion industry works.” The fact that awesome women’s boyshorts go extinct so quickly is why our initial Boyshorts 101 post has now become almost completely obsolete.

Boyshorts 1021

The Hanes Authentic Core Women’s Boxer-Brief we loved so dearly in the late ’00s are a thing of the past, and the new style doesn’t even cover your entire butt! The Calvin Klein Steel Gripper Trunk has discontinued the button-fly style in favor of it’s enormous penis-sculpting pocket styleUrban Outfitters, which coincidentally I hate now anyway, stopped offering its classic boyshorts with the white waistband and the three buttons in the front.

All of these discontinued models fit into my favorite style of boyshort, which I will refer to as “girltrunks.” Underpants who identify as “boyshorts” run the gamut, especially with respect to coverage, so when I say “girltrunks” I’m referring to “boyshorts” (and sometimes men’s boxer-briefs) that cover your whole entire butt and then some. Here, I made you a graphic to explain the different types of underpants!Boyshorts 1025

i stole the little blue boxes with white shapes from hanes.com, except the girltrunks one, which i made myself in photoshop!

As you know, we like to diversify the imagery as much as possible here, but unfortunately underwear vendors prefer to focus on skinny white cis girls exclusively, even when modeling plus-size underthings! So that’s how that is. [Sidenote: Also, whenever searching for imagery of plus-size ladies in their underpants — for a fashion feature, NSFW Sunday or a girl gallery — I find the vast majority of modeled underthings are super-duper-femme and exceptionally lacy. Have you noticed this? I think we need to start shooting our own stock photography or something.]

Let’s begin!

Boyshorts 1024-002

The most common style of boyshorts doesn’t, generally, offer full ass-coverage and subsequent freedom from panty-lines. What makes this style different from traditional women’s underpants is the cut — they generally reveal less of the thigh and ass than traditional women’s briefs and have short legs and generally a lower waist. They’re exceptionally flattering and also very sporty/sexy. Sportysexy, if you will.

If you’re crazy about avoiding pantylines (as I am), then you need a very special kind of boyshort: the kind that is really hard to find. The kind that covers your entire ass and then some, so that if there’s any bunching-up of the underroos, it’ll blend right in to the natural bunching-up that happens in your pants when you move around the world while wearing pants. I’m gonna call this type of underpant the “girltrunk.” If you’re wearing a good pair of girtrunks, nobody will know whether or not you shave your bikini line, and if you trip over a banana on the sidewalk, nobody will see your bits.

In the past, my go-to brands for this style were Hanes and Calvin Klein, but both of those franchises have let me down as of late. Presently, I obtain 75% of my girlshorts from the H&M boys section (size 12-14Y) because they’re completely a men’s style, but spandexy enough to wear under leggings. However, I recognize that 95% of the female population cannot shop the boys section so you’ll be happy to learn that Uniqlo’s seamless boxer-briefs are a popular choice for those seeking masculine style with a more feminine fit. Also, these:


1. Hanro Black Touch Feeling Low-Rise Boyshorts ($49), 2. H&M Boy’s Boxer-Briefs (3/$9.95), 3. Barely there® Flawless Fit® 2-pk. Microfiber Boyshorts ($13.99),  4. Shimera Seamless Boyshorts ($13), 5. Superfit Curves Seamless Boyshorts – $9.49, 6. Calvin Klein Concept Micro Low-Rise Trunk ($30), 7. Uniqlo Seamless Low-Rise Boxer-Briefs ($4.95), 8. Jockey Natural’s Seamfree Boyshorts ($9.45), 9. Under Armour Seamless Boyshorts ($30)



There will be an entire masculine-of-center underthings style guide so I don’t want to encroach on that territory too much, but fuck I love boxer-briefs! When you’re home alone, boxer-briefs basically count as pants. Depending on your between-the-legs situation, you may or may not be looking to avoid a generous penis pocket. I personally eschew boxer-briefs that offer “enhancing” or “sculpting” or even “support,” which means I generally stick to 95%-100% cotton boxer-briefs. Again I tend to loot the boy’s section for these (Fruit of The Loom), but also find the adult American Apparel boxer-brief to fit nicely under baggier jeans and look sexy without a shirt at bedtime. (And especially sexy with ‘Straddle This’ written on them!)

1. Fruit of the Loom Men’s 2 Pack Active Ringer Boxer Brief ($14), 2. Calvin Klein Stretch 2-Pack Trunk Set ($34),3. American Eagle Outfitters Low-Rise Trunk ($12.50), 4. Puma Volume Boxer-Brief (3/$28), 5. Schiesser Cotton Boxer-Briefs ($60), 6. Hanes Men’s 3 Pack Comfort Stretch Boxer Brief (3/$12.50), 7. Mack Weldon Trunk ($22), 8. 100% Cotton Topman Branded Underwear 3-Pack (3/$30), 9. Emporio Armani Cotton Stretch Cotton Boxer Briefs ($26), 10. American Apparel Baby Rib Boxer Brief ($16)

The #1 reason I sometimes choose men’s underpants over women’s is The Waistband. If I’m wearing loose-fitting jeans that might possibly sag, I specifically select underpants with a prominent logo’ed waistband. (This is the only situation in which I proudly rock a brand name on my body, generally I avoid that because of commercialism and The Man. I don’t know, underwear makes me do crazy things.)underpantslesbians1

 Okay what are you waiting for, TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS!!!!


AliExpress is a massively popular Chinese online retail service owned by Alibaba Group. It was launched in 2010 and hasn’t stopped its journey to becoming the ‘biggest online marketplace of the world‘ ever-since. AliExpress stands toe-to-toe even with Amazon in terms of buyers worldwide. It offers wholesale goods at direct-to-consumer prices from Chinese sellers.


It also works as a great dropshipping model for a lot of e-commerce entrepreneurs. Along with a lot of good sides, AliExpress has some cons as well. The biggest problem is the shipping time of AliExpress orders, which is pretty long considering the goods come from China. Also, some orders can be very expensive after shipping charges and taxes.

So, it is a good thing to have some AliExpress alternatives whenever you don’t like its services. That’s why we are telling you about 21 best sites like AliExpress. Some of these websites offer cheaper prices and faster shipping on certain products. And, you can also use them to maintain a nice profit margin for your dropshipping business.


LightInTheBox is the perfect AliExpress alternative as it is also a Chinese e-Store. It sells hot and trending products across the globe. Their products range from phone and electronics to fashion, jewelry, shoes, bags, and many other items. You can find almost anything here at a very cheap price.

The delivery time of LightInTheBox is also similar to AliExpress as their warehouses are located only in China. But, you may get a faster shipping time due to having fewer orders to ship. You can pay for your orders with PayPal, Western Union, or your credit card.


Wish is a widely popular online marketplace where you can buy almost anything. From clothing to footwear, electronics, healthcare items, and many more things, you can get them all for an incredibly cheap price. They are also known to offer great deals and coupons to their new customers.

Their shipping time is also faster than AliExpress as their products come from sellers located in small countries. Wish also provides an advanced rating system that is very helpful for both the consumers as well as sellers. It helps promote good ones.


Overstock is a US-based online marketplace. It makes profit by selling wholesale products at a highly cheap price tag. A major portion of their stock is comprised of overstock from the major retailers or their seconds. You can find some really amusing deals here. The shipping time will also be lower as compared to the Chinese marketplaces. You can get your items within a week.

The product range of Overstock is incredible. You can find everything such as clothing, decor, kitchen appliances, and many more items. You can even find furniture and other big home items. So, you can use to fill your house with great stuff at a reduced price.


DealeXtreme, more popularly known as DX, is an amazing online marketplace. The website works in a very similar manner as ‘Wish’ and sells cheap products coming directly from sellers. It has partnered with many small businesses and sells its products to a wide base of audience.


The shipping time is a problem with DX also because their warehouses are located in China. Apart from this, you can get some really worthy deals on DX. You should always keep an eye on their clearance sales for the best prices.


Gearbest is the perfect AliExpress alternative if you are looking to shop for the latest gadgets or electronic devices. It works with over 5000 Chinese brands and top suppliers to deliver the best products. It has products from top Chinese companies such as Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, and many others. But, it isn’t just an electronic store.

You can also find a massive range of other products as well. The prices available on GearBest are reduced, and you can even reduce them with the available coupons. They also have warehouses in multiple countries. So, you can get faster shipping from the local warehouse.


BangGood is another Chinese e-commerce platform that provides worldwide shipping of cheap goods. You can find almost anything on this website, from clothing to electronics, and even home items. The prices available are marked down from their original prices. You can also get amazing deals during special clearance sales.

BangGood provides a free $20 coupon to every new user. The shipping time for BangGood orders is faster than AliExpress for certain products. However, the regular shipping time is similar.


ChinaBrands is a widely popular Chinese e-Store where you can buy products at wholesale prices. You can find almost anything on this website at a highly affordable price. Their shipping prices are also low but you will get a long shipping time. It is the perfect website for buyers who want the lowest prices but can wait for their orders for at least a month.

Most of the ChinaBrands sellers run their factories from China, and their warehouses are located there only. This is the reason for the considerably long shipping time.


Bonanza is a unique American online marketplace where you can find a great range of products. They have over 20 million items from more than 50,000 sellers. It is a growing e-commerce store where even you can sell your items. It is a preferred platform by more than 20,000 entrepreneurial sellers. You can find some really amazing handcrafted items and collectibles here.
