At Banglads.com we think we know a lot about men’s underwear, well after all we are underwear specialists! So we’ve taken a look at underwear trends for 2009 and made some predictions about what we think is going to be big news in men’s underwear during 2010. And the first thing we noticed is the trend for men’s designer underwear to incorporate the latest technological innovations in their fabrics and design – probably not so surprising given that guys love technology and gadgets! And that brings us neatly to our first two predictions:
Body shaping and contouring underwear for men
Our first prediction for 2010 is that body shaping underwear for men is going to be big news this year. It’s the instant way to achieve the body you want – no love handles, a flat stomach, plus it even promises to improve your posture. Body shaping undies started to catch on in 2009 but we reckon 2010 will be the year that guys are finally converted to the benefits of contouring underwear.
Designer brands like 2x(ist) and Equmen have made men’s slimming and contouring underwear that’s still fashionable and comfortable to wear – and that’s on top of making you look good! So our top recommendations for smoothing those wobbly bits and giving you that streamlined look are as follows:
Equmen Core Precision Undershirt – in Longsleeve or V-neck. These terrific Undershirts will visibly streamline your body, improve your posture and control your temperature, which means you stay cool and comfortable whatever you’re doing.
2(x)-ist Form Slimming Trunks – these are designed to make abs out of love handles and give you a more sculpted look that avoids muffin tops. Plus they also provide increased back support and posture help. The wide elastic waistband on these trunks is 6 inches deep and has the potential to trim your waist measurement by a massive 2 inches.
Men’s enhancing underwear
Hot on the heels of our body shaping prediction for 2010 comes men’s body enhancing underwear – it’s perfect for lifting and boosting your assets and just basically making the most of what you’ve got. Plus it looks good too! Our top recommendations for body enhancing underwear that looks good, feels comfortable and boosts your profile are from the Andrew Christian and C-in2 ranges:
Andrew Christian Almost Naked Flashback Boxers – the unique Flashback Technology lifts your buttocks making them look firm and round without the need for embarrassing padding. They come in a Bamboo fabric which virtually eliminates any sticking, sweating or chafing and they feature Anti-Muffin Top elastic to minimize the appearance of love handles.
Andrew Christian Shock Jock Extreme Frontal Enhancing Underwear in briefs, jocks and boxers – they feature a hidden padded cup to help shape and enhance a guy’s front package and add up to 2 inches (5 cm) onto your measurement.
C-in2 Core Sling Support Low No Show Trunks and Briefs – which feature the C-in2 patented sling support system that lifts and holds you and boosts your profile.
We think fabrics are going to be even bigger in 2010. Men’s designer undies just keep getting better and better, and with all the top brands incorporating the latest technology in their designs and fabrics we’re spoilt for choice. But some of our top favourites are:
C-in2 – their Bamboo perforated mesh sports fabric is naturally anti-bacterial, soft to wear, and eco-friendly too.
Equmen – use seamless stitching and targeted mesh undershirts that keep you cool with a breathable, second skin fit.
Gregg Homme – their use of mesh and net makes them an underwear range that’s sexy and comfortable.
N2N – use soft sheer net for men’s briefs, boxers and jocks. It’s a material that’s traditionally more used in women’s lingerie but N2N have used it to create an underwear range that’s sexy, fashionable and comfortable too.
Rufskin – because their denim briefs and jocks are totally original and strikingly sexy!
Lots of colour
We think the trend for colourful undies will continue in 2010. There was lots of colour in men’s designer underwear in 2009 and it’s time to embrace the whole colour spectrum in our briefs, trunks, boxers and jocks with colourful brands like Andrew Christian, Bjorn Borg, Calvin Klein and Diesel.
We also think patterns and prints are going to continue to be big news in 2010 – we’re talking designer brands like Ed Hardy, Ginch Gonch, Piss & Vinegar, and Replay. With their distinctive prints and stunning patterns, these really are brands to covet!
The waistbands on men’s designer undies have been growing increasingly colourful and adventurous and let’s face it designer logos definitely influence our purchases, so we’re convinced this is a trend that’s going to continue!
It’s Football World Cup Year!
Last but not least, 2010 is Football World Cup Year. So we reckon one of the biggest trends in men’s underwear this year is going to be the football world cup. So get ready for lots of footie inspired undies this year!
