Growers vs Showers When it Comes to Underwear

I've often wondered what guys think about underwear depending on whether they are a grower versus a shower. I am a grower and to me that seems more ideal when it comes to a lot of the specialty underwear that we all like to wear here.

So I'm especially interested to hear from any showers what they think of closer fitting underwear. Is it simply impractical or just too uncomfortable? Are most designs able to accommodate you? Is it a point of frustration?

Also just curious in general what day to day life is like for you showers, especially if you're particularly well endowed. Is the attention always fun or is it sometimes tiring? Is it ever in the way? I would have to imagine the pros outweigh the cons, but just curious what guys have to say about it.
 
I'm a grower. The majority of my underwear has a pouch that expands to accommodate me in the event of a spontaneous hard-on. I have a couple of g-strings & thongs that barely contain me flaccid and I rarely wear them because they're just too uncomfortably tight to wear. For the most part, I love the rest.

On occasion, when I wear athletic pants with a thong or g-string, I find myself being a little self-conscious about the fabric of my pants getting bunched up between my buttocks when I'm out running errands and getting in & out of my vehicle. Conversely, the same situation excites me when I'm around my girlfriend's mom, who knows, but seems unfazed, that I wear thongs & g-strings.

Same here regarding the pouches usually being able to accommodate me, even when I get aroused. I also don't care for anything too tight that can't accommodate me.

You just might have to show us a pic of these pants and them getting bunched up ;) Intriguing about the mom knowing...

Ok...first of all @musclethong, you are definitely a "shower"! Outside of absurd porn, your package is on the high end of average 🤩...
As for "close fitting" garments, I like my jockstraps, but otherwise lean toward briefs, boxer briefs, or square cut trunks. I prefer thin cotton with some stretch and free-form, rather than something with seams or a pouch. I like a VPL, but not overly constricting...and no-fly ever! It isn't my place to say if I'm a "grower" or a "shower", but I consider myself average and choose comfort over all else. Some of my undies happen to hug n reveal more than others, but I like them because they are comfortable as well as (hopefully) being somewhat sexy.

Grower here, but I still prefer roomy, bulgey pouches. I can't stand being squished flat. I can't stand my balls being squished into my thighs, and as a result, I probably wear a metal cock ring 4-5 days a week. As far as underwear goes, if it's not a bulge pouch, it's a no-go.

I'm at the point now too, where I freeball a lot more than I ever have. Especially in jeans now. Grey sweatpant season is fun, and I've long since gotten over the wedgie butt or some VPL. I try not to advertise, but I also don't care if people catch a glance either. If they're staring, then I hope they enjoy the sight.

Showers - Well, lucky you all!

Well thank you!! Sorry for the slow response, I either didn't get a notification for your tag/reply or I somehow missed it. I guess I consider myself a grower because my size between soft and hard is quite different, whereas showers I think have less of a difference. But it's certainly subjective and I will absolutely take the compliment! :D

I hear ya about comfort! If I'm doing anything physical for a while (working on the car, yard work, etc., except my workouts 😜) then I prefer something less wild and more comfortable. I tend not to wear boxer briefs or trunks because my thighs are larger and they tend to roll up. You can definitely find pairs that are both comfortable and sexy as you said though, and it's a big part of why I mostly where Gregg Homme; I find them quite comfortable while also being very sexy.

I will strongly second your opinion about pouches! Definitely my preference as well. Cramming myself into something tiny is a fun novelty for pictures or play but I can't go around wearing it, just too uncomfortable.

I freeball a lot as well in the summer, like strolling to the grocery store down the block in my shorts. Just more ease and laziness than anything because I don't wear underwear lounging around the house either. I'm the same, I don't necessarily advertise but I don't have a problem rocking a bulge in some tight pants or someone catching my dick swinging in my loose shorts 😜

I consider myself a bit more of a shower than a grower, due to this find it very difficult to find general underwear that completely holds me in. Everything I now buy is online and either pouch or known for its larger space. Ive spent alot of time and money trying different brand just to get the right fit.

Thanks for the reply! This is exactly what I was wondering. Seems like it would be difficult to find underwear when you are a well endowed shower. May I ask how endowed you are?
 
Fun discussion! I'm a grower but whether I'm hard or soft, I still like a snug fitting pouch that caresses my junk and keeps me "bouncy". This is why I love the bulge/torpedo/4d style so much. Roomy and loose pouches really don't do it as it make me feel inadequate and there is no support... Might as well wear boxers (which I do on days I have to focus on work) or tighty whities (don't wear them).

My question to the forum is how often do you plan to get hard in your underwear and for how long? I'd think the flaccid state was more prevalent for most folks unless you work from home and are in your undies all the time! That's my reason for focusing more on the flaccid state. Other than the occasional thongbate in the pouch, I take my cock out to jerk/edge
 
I'm a bit of both, so I like to have something with decent coverage at the front, ideally a pouch for my balls so I can put my cock kinda diagonally up and to the left. Then if (or when) I do get hard it just carries on in that direction!

The issue with this is that the pouch is usually too baggy for just balls, it needs the cock there too, but for me that get a bit cramped.

Still trying to find the perfect undies!

Mate! Your undies are just perfect! I love your style and your pouch choice, I just wish I had as many of the iSwim thongs / G’s as you.

Check out the Sheath brand then! Separate pouch for your balls and another for your cock!
Incredibly soft, fantastic fit for us growers and comfortable for all day wear! Various lengths of boxerbriefs, regular briefs and even longjohns too! Great colors and patterns!
