Today, there's an array of fabric types when it comes to men's underwear. Most men don't really bother looking at what their underwear's fabric is. The most common type of underwear fabric is cotton. The natural fibers work well to keep your business feeling fresh. Have you heard or seen "Micromodal material" on one of your underwear, or even saw it on ads or read it in a magazine?
Micromodal is a man-made fabric spun out of wood pulp from beech tree chips. This natural composition makes it a breathable fabric, suitable for wearing close to the skin. The silky, shiny look of Modal belies the fact that it does not trap perspiration and therefore leaves the skin freer to breathe.
Modal fabric in underwear keeps its shape and finish, even after frequent washing. These properties make it useful as an underwear fabric. Its silky texture also makes it comfortable for close-fitting intimate wear. Modal underwear is also often blended with a stretch fiber, as well as cotton, but it stays breathable. Unlike garments made from synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester, Modal underwear does not trap perspiration and odors. Modal is up to 50 percent more absorbent than cotton, so clothes never feel sweaty and sticky. ©leaf.tv
Cotton isn’t as smooth as man-made modal which means it can bunch up underneath clothing. Not comfortable for working out at the gym when you need things to stay in place. Consider this a con.

How to measure my natural waist?
To measure your natural waist, measure at your belly button. If your waist is larger than your hips use the narrowest part of your torso to measure your waist.
