Best Fabrics for Mens Workout Underwear
The Underwear Expert blog has a list of the fabrics used to make underwear. Of those fabrics, cotton, polyester, nylon, spandex, and modal are the best for working out.
There is a disadvantage to the use of polyester: It is one of the largest textile contributors to pollution.
