3 Great Occasions To Wear Rainbow Boxers

From thongs to bikini cuts, boxers, and everything else in between, there are so many options to pick from. Different events, moods, and needs will call for certain types of underwear. Even when it comes to choosing between boxers, briefs, and boxer briefs, you’ll likely want to switch it up from time to time. 

What’s the difference between boxers and boxer briefs, you may ask? Boxer briefs are form-fitting and hug your shape. Boxers are looser. Both boxers and boxer briefs offer more coverage than briefs (no shade to briefs, we love them). 

But we don’t just want to talk about just any pair of boxers. Not every pair of boxers are worthy, so we’re here to share one near and dear to our hearts: Rainbow Boxers. When you wear rainbow boxers, it’s about more than wearing underwear. You’re making a statement, and we’ll tell you why.

1. When You’re Celebrating Pride

As you can assume, the rainbow design on our Boxers is so much more than a fun design. TomboyX is all about supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, and one of the ways we take a stand for them is by making products that celebrate Pride. 

For so many members of the LGBTQIA+ community, Pride colors embody who they are as people. It unites a group that knows what it’s like to suffer from seclusion and judgment because when expressive their authentic selves. That can be anything from who they do or don’t love and how they identify.

There’s more meaning behind Pride colors than what the average person might know. Each color of the six-color rainbow flag represents something important to the community. Red symbolizes life, orange represents healing, yellow portrays sunshine, green is nature, blue is for harmony, and purple symbolizes spirit.

Now that the LGBTQIA+ continues to grow and find more people that identify with the movement, dozens of flags are dedicated to each community subsect; each person can find a sense of belonging.

Celebrate Pride All Year Long

No summer would be complete without celebrating Pride Month. It’s an entire month to uplift their voices and call for more and more progress until there’s nothing but love and acceptance for their community. It’s a time to remember the lives we lost to HIV and AIDs and memorialize them.

But it would be wrong to limit the enthusiasm for their movement to just one month. Every single day they get to enjoy being with their partner of choice, and living out the lives that make them happy is a day to celebrate and continue to fight for them. 

That’s why, in reality, every day is an occasion for a rainbow boxer. Rainbow pride apparel is a simple reminder of the progress that the world has made and continues to make. 

2. When Fighting Gender Roles

Boxers are relatively new in the grand scheme of underwear history. This base layer was invented in 1925, but the threads finally came together just after WWII. Boxers were traditionally marked to men, but we think it’s time for everyone to get in on this trend. It’s time for everyone to get a seat at the table. 

Gender stereotyping is a serious problem in the way of full and total gender equality. Unfortunately, there are still preconceived notions that specific characteristics, traits, hobbies, and interests are associated with one gender and one gender alone.

But that’s just not how the world works. You don’t have to be a certain gender to enjoy certain things or to wear certain clothes.

That’s why TomboyX has a plethora of products that are for everyone. And rainbow boxers are just one way to start rocking some inclusive underwear. Regardless of your gender, experts designed these boxers to fit everyone. When we aim for equality and inclusion, we mean it.

So, any day you want to make a statement and take a stand against sexism, and the harm gender roles do to us all, wear your rainbow boxers. Break the norms and create new ones.

3. When You Just Want To Be Comfy

Let’s talk about the main thing we all want in a pair of Boxers: comfort. Everything about TomboyX Boxers Briefs, from their incredibly soft (and environmentally sustainable) material to their flatlock seams, are supposed to bring you total relaxation.

As Underwear

If you’re wearing rainbow boxer briefs as your first layer over your bottoms, then any discomfort will be the furthest thing from what you experience. Here’s why:

The specific kind of fabric that we use (95% OEKO-TEX certified cotton and 5% spandex) makes for a soft but stretchy material that does everything underwear is supposed to do. That’s to give you the freedom to move every which way you need to without restriction or irritation.

If you want to go tumbling and do a roundoff back handspring back tuck, in these boxer briefs, you can. If you want to spend all day on your couch, you can lay in any and every position you want, totally chill. 

You’ll have none of the irritation or chafing that can sometimes happen with underwear. The boxer briefs will never bunch up on your legs or give you a wedgie. In fact, you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing them at all.

As Shorts

You can even wear rainbow boxers as shorts on your comfy days, too. Almost like biker shorts, which everyone has been loving during warmer months, our boxer briefs have a mid-rise fit and 9” inseam. That makes them appropriate for just about any casual occasion, whether public or private. 

We can see these looking great with a crop top if you’re going out to run errands or have lunch with friends. Maybe if you’re going to get a workout in at the gym, you can wear a Rainbow Pride Stripe Essentials Soft Bra. There’s nothing that screams Pride like a matching Rainbow Pride Stripe set.

Under the Rainbow

When we talk about the importance of inclusivity, we don’t just mean gender or sexuality. We want to be inclusive to people of all shapes and sizes. So, if finding clothes is a hassle that is familiar to you, it won’t be when it comes to TomboyX products.

TomboyX makes sure to fit test products on all body types. That’s why there’s such a large selection when it comes to sizes you can choose from. For these Rainbow Pride Boxer Briefs, in particular, sizes range from XS to 6X. And there’s a sizing chart available for anyone unsure about sizing.

At TomboyX, we are here to support everyone, including our planet. That’s why we use (and love) OEKO-TEX Certified cotton. That means that our cotton goes through testing by experts to be certain that it's free of any chemicals or substances that can be harmful to you or Mother Earth.

And that’s all the more reason to grab your own pair of rainbow boxer briefs. You’ll love them so much that once you put them on, you’ll never want to take them off.
