Men’s push-up underwear uses a piece of soft elasticated U-shaped material or a strap to lift the crotch upwards and outwards, effectively ‘pushing’ it up and out. Some push up underwear for men has straps which fasten underneath the package. These straps behave like a cradle, holding the package upwards and supporting it underneath. But the most common form of push-up underwear involves a piece of U-shaped or horse-shoe shaped material being sewn into the entrance of the pouch. Your package sits over this material, with the material supporting it from underneath, pushing it upwards and outwards. The material usually has soft elastic lining to make it more comfortable and to provide some flexibility.
The benefits of push up underwear technology are not only support, lift and enhancement. By pushing the package upwards and away from the body, these push-up systems reduce the amount of sticking, sweating and squashing, making it a healthier wearing experience. In terms of enhancement, push-up systems tend to provide the largest level of enhancement, although it can vary depending on your package size and the system used. The disadvantage of push-up underwear relates to the ‘feel’. It is not necessarily uncomfortable, but it is not natural for your package to be pushed upwards and therefore it can feel strange, requiring a little patience until you are used to the feel.
