Ask the Expert: Hang Free Pouch w/ Skinny Jeans


Jon from Liverpool: I prefer anatomically correct and pouches from brands like Andrew Christian’s and Obviously’s, but they don’t really work all that well under my skinny jeans. What else is out there that could provide hang-free support but still keep its place under my tight pants?

The Underwear Expert: Jon, we feel your pain because some of us here at The Underwear Expert have found ourselves in the exact same situation, a constant need to choose between comfort and looks. The anatomically shaped or hang free pouch is one of today’s best technological achievements. An anatomical pouch is basically a pouch that offers plenty of room while still offering support, so your package is suspended without being squished. The only kicker is, because this type of pouch holds your goods slightly away from your body, it ends up being quite enhancing as well.

As far as a solution goes, believe me when I tell you, there really isn’t a good one. You can’t have your cake and eat it, too. Either you go for this amazing pouch and walk around looking extra confident or you settle for less-than-amazing underwear that confines your natural endowment.

There may not be a concrete answer, but there is hope. Which Andrew Christian styles have you tried, Jon? We’ve found the Andrew Christian Almost Naked Infinity Brief gets the job done without being as “out there” as some of the other styles. Also, even though the 2xist Shape: Maximize Brief is intended to enhance, the pouch gives you the slight separation and incredible comfort of an anatomically correct pouch without going overboard. It definitely plumps the package, but it keeps things in place under your skinnies.

One more thing–make sure you’re wearing the right size. You may think a size smaller hang free pouch will give you more lift, but it ends up just making the bulge look bigger. Stick with your size and enjoy the spare room.
