My Buying Underwear Disappointment…
I have told you guys that I’m working on losing weight and getting healthier. I have a few things that could cause long-term issues if I stay a beefy boy for a while. So I decided to be proactive and take off weight. I am 20 pounds down and a lot more to go to reach my goal. It’s a long process that is about a lifestyle change not dieting.
To celebrate this feat, I was going to buy me some undies. There were a few pairs from a brand I had my eye on! I went to the site and selected the size. But that little voice in my head said “check the size chart.” As I clicked it. The XL was at least 2 inches smaller than my current waist size. “WTF!” went through my mind. I won’t say what brand it was, but I know they had 38-40 as their XL in the past. I’m right at a 40.
I pretty much said “Fuck it” and closed the browser. At first, I was depressed, but then I got angry. You think the editor of an underwear blog would have no issues in underwear. Or I could reach out and voice my frustration. Well, unfortunately, I don’t have a contact with that brand. So I decided to get some singlets instead, that fit!!
We need to get underwear lines that make underwear for guys larger than a 36 waist. If you’re tall like me, 6’4″, even at a healthy body weight, it’s easy to have a 36 or 38-inch waist. But regardless, if I want to buy something to make me feel sexy I should be able too, no matter what size I am.
I looked through more brands and a lot of them end about 36 inches. We have a lot more work to do to get bigger, tall and beefy guys in better underwear. I am going to start running posts of brands that carry XL and cater to beefy guy! Stay tuned.
