Trying to escape your boring, typical boxer brief routine? Admitting is the first step. Look no further than the bikini – the perfect cut to venture into the modern world of stylish underwear, offering optimal coverage, while still maintaining comfort. The Underwear Expert has selected the best bikini cut underwear to get you out of your rut. Model Matt O’Brien expertly shows us how to show off your best asset in seven looks from our photoshoot below.
For those of you not familiar with this style, bikini cuts, the predecessor of the standard brief, offer more material than a g-string and jockstrap. Often designed without waistbands and flys, this cut has remained a new standard in men’s underwear. At The Underwear Expert, we believe all underwear is created equal. However, we do know some men who think the thong holds no place in their underwear drawer. For those naysayers, we tell them that next to the thong, this cut is your best bet for getting rid of those pesky “manty lines.” Along with less fabric, these cuts offer more mobility than the common boxer brief.

Two of the more modern styles featured are brought to us by Rufskin in sleek styles with minimalist detailing. The Tristan bikini, in a low-cut solid navy, offers a concealed waistband and stylistic studded emblem. Juxtaposing the Tristan, the Owen bikini is possibly more waistband than fabric.
Gone are the days where thick waistbands are essential to the bikini with this featured BodyAware style. Classically clean and stylish in an always chic grey, the Cheeky Brief offers possibly the most coverage of all featured styles, guaranteeing this modern take on the bikini will be your new favorite pair.
If you’re looking for a splash of color to bring to this cut, N2N shows us how less is more with their barely-there interpretation of this cut with solid blues and reds along contrasting thick black waistbands. Cocksock takes the look to a sophisticated level by utilizing classic black styles with white accents for a look thats always chic and in style.
While many might think the bikini falls under the more wild and crazy styles in men’s underwear, we have noticed this simple, clean cut is trending and represents a sophisticated, modern look for a new take on an old classic.
