Popular styles of boys' underwear 2-16 years

If you're shopping for underwear for younger boys, for example in the 2-8 years category, your considerations when purchasing are likely to be very different than when choosing underwear for a 16 year old. Fashion and cut are likely to be less of a concern, with young boys generally finding briefs a comfortable and easy to wear option, especially when it comes to potty training. They are also likely to favour bold colours and bright patterns. Think about a pair that feature a favourite cartoon character or superhero, as these are sure to be well received.

As boys grow older, they may start to consider underwear that's more functional than fun. From 8 years upwards many boys start to prefer boxers or jockey style briefs and want underwear that will be comfortable for everything from daily wear to school to wearing under sports clothes. Bright colours tend to remain in vogue, but different styles may be on the cards.

Fashion, fun or function?

Once boys reach high school age, typically your comic book heroes and novelty designs tend to be less fashionable and most boys will be wearing boxer style underwear. Try browsing underwear from designers like Calvin Klein if you want a fashionable and comfortable option, or if you're buying in bulk consider Primark or non branded options. Multi packs and bundles are useful, especially if there may be a growth spurt on the cards.

To help care for new underwear and help it to last as long as possible, even when it's being put to the test in tough conditions like rough play and lots of sporting activities, there are a couple of simple tips to bear in mind. Use a quality fabric conditioner and wash at 30, whilst taking care when using the tumble dryer.
