  • Underwear

    OK let's talk about underwear specifically men's underwear unfortunately. Ha Ha
    I am having problems with red lines/marks left by my underwear right where my leg and butt cheek meet. I've tried various types with out any success even changing cushions hasn't made a difference.
    I've tried up loading a picture to show what I'm talking about but haven't had any luck.

    Anyone have some suggestions on a good brand to use I'm getting desperate and somewhat scared I do not want A pressure sore!!!!

    No doubt you will get comments here that you should go without underwear. For some it is okay and works. For some, not. Have you tried the longer legged stretchable fabric boxer shorts. UnderAmour, Calvin Klein, Jockey, Champion etc., make variations on the style.

    All the best,

      I like these http://www.marks.com/shop/en/marks-m...nk-brief-30675 , no seam in the back. Or for longer leg ones http://shop.lululemon.com/products/c...rwear-everyday , the seam in the back is flat and doesn't leave marks. They are a bit pricey though.

        It's been 42 years since I had on my last pair.

              I generally recommend that men with SCI go without underwear. The wrinkles and seams can cause problems, and it makes both dressing and undressing more difficult and time consuming. If you do intermittent cath, you also have to mess with the underwear when cathing in your chair.

              On the other hand, without underwear you do need to be more careful in wheelchair positioning to avoid sitting on your testicles (which can cause major AD), and also be more careful with opening and closing slacks' zippers.

                I'm actually a big fan of these underwears. I got them 4 for $24 and they stay up when my pants slide down if my transfers aren't perfect and they don't cause me any red marks.

                  I think to wear or not to wear is a personal choice. Sizing is an issue also. You want it the size to be large enough to be easy to remove but not so large that you have too many wrinkles and bunches up.

                    Going without them has helped me get through 6o post injury years with out a sore on my butt. Save your money and your butt at the same time!

                      I did fail to add to my prior post that as long as I'm at home and in sweats I go sans underwear. But for going out I'm not comfortable with the idea of going without. And my suggestions are what I wear on those occasions.

                        I like the midway length briefs. Most have no seams on the back.

                          Thanks everyone for the suggestions I guess it's time to go underwear shopping. I wouldn't mind going commando sense that's how I sleep however I wear levi's during the day and it's rough material against my skin probably wouldn't be so good.

                            I've only had problems wearing cotton briefs. I switched over to a compression short and they keep the meat and potatoes right were I want them. The material is slick so sliding jeans over them is fairly easy. I just double check before I button up that everything is straight and not bunched up and wear a size larger than I would if I was AB. These are expensive but I've had the same 4 pairs for years now and they have held up to my pulling and tugging. I also have some Under Armour as well.

                              Without finger function it's a problem with or without. Was using jock straps for years because at least I can get my hands underneath the waist strap and fumble around until I get things close to where they are supposed to be. Without underwear of some type, trying to put penis and testicles in the right place after being lifted onto my Roho cushion is a challenge, especially when my penis ends up stuck underneath my leg.

                              Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
