Butt enhancing underwear isn’t just for women, it can be for anyone who wants to get an instant boost to the way their butt looks. While you’ll probably find that butt padded underwear for men is a bit more difficult to find in physical stores, you’ll be spoilt for choice online (along with the advantage of being able to browse embarrassment-free from the comfort of your own home).
Can Men Wear Butt Enhancing Underwear?
Of course they can! We all know that women love a cute butt on a guy, so why shouldn’t a man dress up his derriere a bit if he wants that extra bit of attention?
It may seem a bit laughable at first, but check out these guys in the video below who tried out padded underwear. It’s not for everyone, but quite a few were pleasantly surprised!
Contrary to any ’embarrassment’ that you may feel for wanting to have a better butt, it is quite common for anyone, male or female alike, to want to have a nice figure. Shapewear is becoming a booming industry and more and more popular as people are realizing the benefits and ease of use of these types of products.
While a lot of women’s shapewear can appear very obvious in its function (the cut of women’s shapewear is usually very far from sexy and skimpy lingere, for example), men’s padded underwear doesn’t necessarily suffer from the same problem. This means that you can wear butt enhancing underwear as a man, without it being overly obvious that you are wearing shapewear instead of normal underwear. Not bad!
Another Purpose – Comfort!
Other men who might be interested in purchasing butt padded underwear are those who don’t have much natural padding on their rear and tend to find sitting on hard surfaces for long periods of time to be uncomfortable.
Padding in the seat of your underwear can be an easy and convenient way to cushion your butt against feeling sore in these situations – there is even an application to preventing ‘saddle butt’, if your butt gets sore from sitting in a saddle all day if you ride horses!
Of course, a pleasant side effect if you decide to go this way is the visual enhancement effects that padded underwear can add as well.
What Types of Men’s Shaping Underwear are Available?
There are heaps of different styles available, and different butt enhancing garments have slightly different purposes. The main types that you will come across are:
- Padded butt – adds extra inches to your butt for those suffering from ‘pancake butt’ syndrome
- Padded front – adds a bit extra to your package bulge for good measure
- Butt lifter – usually don’t come with any padding but are designed to lift your butt to give some extra volume
- Waist slimmer – may make your butt look better as a result of making your waistline appear slimmer
- Package separator – designed to separate your package from your legs, so you don’t have to be constantly adjusting things ‘down there’
In this article we’ll look mainly at the butt-padded underwear (which often come with an option for front padding as well).
Types and Styles
There are two main types of butt-padded underwear available – those with built in padding that is stitched or molded into the fabric and cannot be removed, or you can also get garments with purpose built ‘pockets’ that are designed to accommodate removable butt padding inserts.
- No messing around with changing or positioning butt pads.
- Security knowing that the padding is not going to move around during everyday wear.
- A ‘wear-and-go’ solution, with no extra work required on your part.
- You may need to hand wash these since you can’t remove the padding , check the care instructions on the garment.
- There are no silicone pad options available, these are generally foam padded only. Silicone is often favored because of its more realistic appearance and feel.
- Versatile. The underwear can be worn with or without padding, and some come with padding options for the front package as well as your butt.
- Different amounts of butt-boost are an option – you can mix and match different sized pads with different undies to create a variety of looks.
- Economical – one set of butt pads can be used with multiple pairs of underwear, so you may only need one set of butt pads.
- Can wear these with silicone butt pads for a more realistic feel, in case you are expecting any grabbing or slapping of your ass!
- You need to remove the pads before washing, so they will require a bit of ‘set-up’ before wearing again if you decide to use the pads.
- Butt padding can have the potential to move around within the pockets if you buy an inferior product, though this isn’t a problem with higher quality brands.
Butt Pads with Customizable Boost
With the removable padding option, you can choose your size of butt padding to cater to how much extra boost your want. A good vendor will offer several different types and sizes of pads, that will give you different levels of extra padding from anywhere between 1/4 inch to 3 inches of extra ‘junk in tha trunk’. It really makes for a totally customizable system.
Another one to be aware of is that there are different types of butt padding available – foam or silicone. The silicone pads are a bit more expensive but offer a much more realistic feel if anyone were to grab or slap your butt (a high possibility from us females if it’s looking fine).
Padded underwear for men primarily is in the form of briefs or trunks. You generally won’t find anything like loose fitting boxer shorts with padding, as the padding needs to sit close to your butt so that it doesn’t move around too much and look odd.
Where Can I Find Men’s Butt Shaping Underwear?
Your main problem will probably be finding where to purchase butt padded underwear in men’s styles, as they are rarely available in physical stores.
However, most intimate apparel online stores that specialize in enhancement or shapewear garments often have a separate womens and mens section, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find male garments to suit your needs.
Buying Online.. Some Things to be Aware Of
Because padded butt underwear for men is mostly found online and it can be difficult to select a product without seeing it physically, there are a few things you should look out for when purchasing a pair of butt padded jocks over the internet.
Detailed pictures – look for up-close photographs which show how the underwear looks, preferably on a model. This will quickly allow you to see how realistic the product looks, and save you from looking like you’ve stuffed a pair of socks down you jocks when you get your product and try it on.
Visible padding – inferior products have very obvious padding, which doesn’t merge well with the natural lines of your body. Think of a wad of padding sitting on top of the middle of your butt cheek and you can get a rough idea of how ridiculous you might look. While you might be able to ‘soften’ this look if you are wearing thick/heavy clothing like denim jeans, other clothes may not be so forgiving. Go for a quality product with good sizing that has padding that enhances your butt while still remaining undetectable.
Returns policy – always check the returns policy of the vendor you are purchasing through, especially if purchasing online. With underwear, returning items can have some restrictions or even be denied due to health and hygiene considerations. A good company will allow you to return a product if it is unworn and unsoiled. A good vendor should allow for you to try the garment on over the top of your own underwear and still be able to return it if the sizing is incorrect.
Sizing charts – if buying online, sizing charts will be essential to trying to pick your correct size, the more detailed the better. Even if there is no sizing chart available you should be able to email the store owner to ask further questions. Look out for unresponsive or otherwise ambiguous customer support, which may indicate an inferior company.
Reviews – look for product reviews of the specific product you are purchasing, as you can gauge how the product looks and feels to wear through other people’s experiences. Be weary of products that have no product reviews, or negative reviews, for obvious reasons.
My #1 Recommendation For Padded Underwear
Love My Bubbles by Bubbles® Bodywear is my preferred retailer for women’s butt padded underwear, but they also have a great product range for men. This company has been in business for over 10 years, have a great range, fantastic reviews, and an excellent returns policy. They also have detailed information on each one of their products, including great sizing charts, FAQs and user reviews, so that you can be exactly sure of what you are buying.
The best all-rounder I have seen that is hugely popular is the very aptly named “Jackpot!” boxer brief, which has hidden pockets for both front and back padding. Being removable pads, you have the option to wear with or without the padding inserts, so they are very versatile.
The Bubbles Bodywear men’s butt padded underwear range goes retails from around $37 – $69 US, which is a bit pricier but you can be assured that you are getting a high quality product that will last many years. The removable nature of the padding and the hidden pockets means you can use these as regular underwear without the padding if you so choose.
If that’s a bit out of your price range, then there are still plenty of options, a few of which I have listed below (available from Amazon), with prices ranging from around $20 – $40 US.
A few products which have good reviews can be seen below, though some of these appear to have padding which is a little bit more obvious than the hidden padding styles offered by Love My Bubbles.
Feel Foxy also specialize in butt enhancement underwear for both men and women and do a range of padded men’s underwear.
Butt padded underwear is a great product for men to enhance their butts, and many of the garments for men also come with the option to enhance your package as well which can be an added bonus you may or may not choose to use.
A lot of men suffer from having a flat butt which can be embarrassing or uncomfortable when sitting, and enhancement underwear is a great fix for those in this category – providing instant comfort and a huge confidence boost which can increase your success with women.
