Know How to Buy the Right Kind of Jockstrap
When you buy a jockstrap, it is important that you select the right size jockstrap or athletic supporter, particularly if the jockstrap is to be worn for sports, the gym or for any other athletic activity. Even if it is a fashion jockstrap you are searching to purchase, you will want it to fit correctly so it not only looks good but it is at ease. The jockstrap sizing recommendations are a bit different for sports jockstraps than fashion jockstraps but there are a few basic rules that apply for both.
How to Buy the Best Personalised Jockstrap?
The most significant thing to consider with any jock is to look at each jockstrap manufacturer’s recommended size chart. Each jockstrap designer’s sizing is distinctive. Jockstrap sizing is determined by the actual length of the waistband plus the tautness and stretch ability of the elastic which will be different based on the elastic used. Contrary to popular belief, the size of the jockstrap is not indicative of pouch size.
How to Measure Jockstrap Size?
Your waist size is not your jeans size. Do not assume your actual waist size is the size of the last pair of jeans you bought. Some jeans fit low on your hips and other high on your waist plus many clothing designers are now including vanity sizing – essentially lying about the actual waist size to make you feel good. Measure your waist size to be definite.
To determine your actual waist size: go to the store and get yourself a soft fabric measuring tape and measure around your actual waist.
Sizing Tips for Sports Custom Jock Straps:
Jockstraps for sports offer support and protection, they are meant to keep your genitals in place when you run or jog and in the case of a hard cup supporter, they guard your genitals from impact. To offer this support and protection, sizing is of utmost significance. The waistband should be cozy, the leg straps taut which in turn pulls the pouch down to keep your penis and testicles from moving around. It is recommended going with the manufacturer’s recommended sizing. If you are in between sizes, then for sports you are better off going down a size. If you are planning on wearing your sports jock as regular underwear, consider going up a size.
How Should a Jockstrap Fit?
Even though once strictly for sports, jockstraps are now a very popular and sexy form of regular everyday underwear. Sizing fashion jocks is no different sizing regular underwear. You are generally safe choosing the size of your fashion jock based on the jockstrap designer’s recommended sizing, however there may be a few exceptions. Some men prefer a looser fit and find a loose jockstrap more comfortable while other prefer the look of a tight fitting jock. If you are muscular and have larger than average upper legs and thighs you may want to consider going up a size as the leg straps will be tighter, flattening the pouch.
Ultimately, do not be frightened to buy your first jockstrap. With the above information and each jockstrap brand’s suggested sizing, you are going to love you first jock. Experiment with the individual brands and styles, the company offers and finds the jockstrap that looks perfect and makes you feel good because that is what it is all about.
Underwear should not be uncomfortable. At the same time your underwear will leave you feeling confined and unable to move freely and carefree. Jockstrap is known to historically provide the right amount of fabric for breathability, superior support, and improved mobility during athletic activities ‒ but these days, more men are experiencing the adaptability of jockstraps in and out of the gym.
