Re-engineering the pouch on boxerbriefs.

Sewing Project, Re-engineering the pouch on boxerbriefs.

This is a typical front pattern for a boxerbrief. The pouch is kinda banana shaped and lots of seams in the crotch area.

I am going to re-engineering this to be more like a jockstrap pouch, with the crotch/gusset area with fewer seams and a more of a push-up pouch, to give a bit more fitting and support, kinda thinking like push-up bra but for man parts.

My personal preference is for a very snug boxerbrief, if you or you man likes a looser or baggy fit, don’t use this modification from the standard boxerbrief pouch.

Boxerbriefs are a crossover (compression shorts) from the sport world, they are not meant to be baggy like boxers, they are more fitted like briefs, I wish they would have never used the word boxer in the retail name of this style of undergarment.

The retail name should have been Sportbriefs

DId it, a much better pouch design for my basic boaxerbrief pattern. It is more of a jockstrap pouch, instead of the banana shaped pouch on typical boxerbriefs.  Hold your man parts better, and acts kinda like a pushup bra, but for man parts.  Much fewer seams in the crotch gusset area.  Only a minor tweak to patterns needs to done, increase the seam between guests and pouch, need to add about 1.5cm to it. So the gusset panel will be 1.5cm thinner.

More rounded pouch (like a jockstrap), moved the front gusset seam back 2cm, and increase the front thigh panel 3cm to one seam from gusset to bottom of the pouch.
