So this has really been playing on my mind, my 13 y/o DS had a sleepover in our house last week. They day after my DS told me that his friend made fun of him because he wears briefs and not boxer briefs. It as always been his choice. I have been trying to get DS to wear them since he was 9 and now thought he finally decided. But he turned around and said he didn't care he got bullied over it because he doesn't like the other underpants type and likes to be "snug". I am proud of him that he is so Brave where most teenagers would conform to peer pressure but I am also worried incase he does get bullied in pe. What to do?

My boys (10) have worn boxer briefs since they were little. If your son likes briefs and doesn't care if he is bullied then let him wear them.

My boys wear boxers. If your son prefers briefs then he should wear them.

My oldest likes boxers, my middle son likes boxer briefs and youngest is 7 so he still wears briefs.  I hardly doubt that he will get bullied in PE for this as there are lots of boys who wear different things.  I'm sure he's not the only one who wears briefs.

Let him wear what he wants.  If he can ignore the teasing-more power to him.  :-)

This. My husband doesn't wear any underwear. and it never has affected his romantic life or his work life. Teenagers are cruel and if your son is going to succumb to peer pressure over what underwear he chooses to wear, he (and you) will have much bigger problems.

Quoting catevincesmom:

Let him wear what he wants.  If he can ignore the teasing-more power to him.  :-)

Sadly, boys will be boys no matter what the person wears. I would just have him ignore the comments and keep his head up. My boys wear briefs at the moment, but they're younger than your son. However, 8 year old recently asked  me to buy him boxer briefs like his dad.

I have 3 boys The oldest wears boxer briefs, my middle son wears only boxers and my youngest only wears briefs. Its their choice...not yours and not their friends.

My sons wear briefs....they are comfortable in them.  They have never shown their underwear to their friends....so we have no clue what any other boys wear.
