    Hi all,

    Got my gym membership yesterday and am starting working out after a long time of not doing anything at all.

    I'm 5' 11", and 245lbs. My gut is pretty big and I've discovered that jock straps just aren't made in my size and the waistbands tend to drop under my gut while the waistband feels like a corset. No way I can work out even my X-Large Bike jock. That's too bad because I like jocks but there we are.

    So I'm looking for something to wear under my shorts. I sweat a LOT and when I wear regular briefs they get soaked with sweat and start chaffing very quickly. They're too uncomfortable.

    Any suggestions as to what I can wear until my jocks don't feel like they're crushing my kidneys?

    I'm a girl... but maybe some compression shorts that wick away moisture?? I know my brother and all his friends loved those for sports in high school... he always wanted my mom to buy him Under Armor ones...

    I have no idea if this will work... but it's a suggestion.

    got a buddy in your size....with the same problem (guy has a set of nuts that would make a moose blush) anyhow- he has the same problem with the waistband 'collapsing but think he found his jock at penneys online...it has a 'wider' waistband that he wears 'over' his belly (for lack of abetter word) not 'under' his belly line/flap

    he says it works a lot better (gotta say I love watching him take if off- he has the furriest crack) but he is a good friend and straight and...well, off limits.

    good luck with the work out- its folks like you that make ME go back to the gym- if YOU can do it we can.

    Hey man, are you hung? if not you can always try going comando. If thats not an option, try the tighty whities or shorts with a jock built in (Iteck).

    Nope. I'm completely UN-hung, one of the smallest guys on the board. Problem is if I'm on a bench or using the leg press machine or some such, there'd be a great view of everything.

    I haven't found any shorts with a built-in jock. I'll take a look for them. Thanks!
