How Should A Jockstrap Fit?
If you are athletic, you have probably wondered "How should a jockstrap fit?" Well, it is essential to know how exactly a jockstrap fits so that you can correctly wear the cup, to prevent injury to the penis and testicles. A jockstrap is a type of underwear, only it doesn't have any any backing (resembling a thong). Though it is usually worn with a cup, it can also be worn without one, when hiking or running. This helps keep the scrotum from getting squeezed by the thighs during strenuous activity.
- When buying a jockstrap, always check the back of the box. This will usually have a sizing chart, which will help you determine whether it is made for you. The sizing chart usually takes into account your size and waist circumference. Buy the jockstrap that is made for your body, as it will protect your body against injury better.
- Take off your clothes before putting the jockstrap on. Take the jockstrap out of its box and hold it in front of you. You will notice that it has two openings, one for your left leg and one for your right leg. Place both legs through the corresponding opening, and then pull the jockstrap up. Adjust the pouch so it fits snugly.
- The pouch should feel supportive and snug, but not uncomfortably so. Take a few steps around the room and judge whether you feel comfortable wearing it. If so, then the jockstrap fits perfectly; if not, then you will need to buy another (in a larger or smaller size).
