Cotton is the best choice for boxers in terms of comfort, quality and durability. There are many reasons for this, but we've listed the top 10 for you:
  1. Comfort: Cotton boxers are very soft, comfortable and gentle on even sensitive skin.
  2. Breathability: cotton boxers allow the skin to breathe freely. Since cotton is naturally breathable, it also effectively keeps the skin dry and cool during regular everyday use.
  3. Durability: High quality cotton fabric is strong and highly durable, which allows underwear to withstand repeated use and washing for a long time without losing its fit or softness. Depending on the product, it can also withstand higher temperatures than many synthetic fibres, around 40-60 degrees, making it more hygienic.
  4. Natural: Unlike some materials, cotton does not contain harmful or skin-irritating chemicals, such as pesticides or dyes. However, this is only true if there is a OEKO-TEX certificate.
  5. Hypoallergenicity: cotton does not normally cause allergic reactions, even for sensitive people. Cotton boxers are therefore considered a safe choice for people with atopic skin or polyester allergies, for example.
  6. Moisture wicking: Cotton effectively transfers moisture away from the skin and stays dry as long as moisture evaporates faster than it is absorbed. This happens when there is no excess sweating. Therefore, Tencel is a better choice for long periods of exercise and for people who are prone to excessive sweating during the day. To others, cotton boxers are a comfortable and functional choice for regular wear.
  7. Versatility: Cotton underwear is made for almost every occasion, so there's surely a look and feel to suit everyone. One of the most popular variations is, of course, the classic boxer.
  8. Affordability: Cotton boxers provide usually the best value for money. There are plenty of options available that are cheaper, higher quality and more durable than other materials.
  9. Renewability: Cotton is a natural and renewable material that is relatively easy to recycle and reuse (especially 100% cotton fabric), and a good quality cotton boxer (100% cotton or cotton blend) will outlast synthetic fibres.
  10. (Almost) all-weather choice: Cotton boxers can be worn every day of the year and in all seasons, as they provide some warmth in cool weather and breathability in warm weather. However, they are not the best choice if you are facing heavy perspiration, for example in sub-zero temperatures.

In summary, cotton boxers are not only highly comfortable and practical, but also an extremely durable and sensible choice for most people's everyday use.
