Active vs. Sport Underwear: What you need to know

Between work, time with the family and get-togethers with friends, your life is full. It’s packed. It’s busy.

Enter: Active underwear. This newer genre of underthings is growing in popularity and for good reason. It falls somewhere in between your everyday cotton briefs and high-performing sport underwear. It’s the middle ground. The all-day, everyday, ready-when-you-are style.

If it’s not in your top drawer, it needs to be. And here’s why.

Active Underwear Uncovered 

Jockey® Active Stretch underwear wicks away sweat and fights odor to help you feel cool, dry and fresh as you go about your day. Plus, the cotton stretch fabric moves with you to provide around-the-clock, non-restrictive comfort.

Jockey® Active Mesh Underwear offers breathable comfort with allover mesh fabric for superior ventilation. A no-fly design enhances support, while a soft elastic waistband provides a snug fit.

Jockey® Active Microfiber underwear is made with lightweight, anti-microbial fabric that helps pull moisture away from your skin and fight odors.

These styles keep up with you all. day. long. They go from 9 to 5 at the office, to a casual game of hoops with the guys to playtime with the kids.

Simply put, they’re pretty awesome.

But, Wait…What is Sport Underwear

While Active underwear is really a do-it-all of styles, it shouldn’t replace your sport underwear. Why? Because there is a big difference between the two: the amount of support.
