DRAWSTRING WAISTBAND

You are probably used to expecting drawstring waistbands for swimwear alone but a select few labels and designers have created men’s underwear that relies on a drawstring design. Mostly for appearances rather than function when it comes to underwear, drawstring waistbands can lend a fun and unique look to a garment when you might otherwise expect traditional waistbands. Due to the nature of a drawstring waist, you probably should not expect high-performance or function out of underwear using this style of waistband.

Most underwear items that use a drawstring are best-suited to loungewear, sleepwear or erotic wear. For more functional underwear that still has the look of a drawstring waistband, you will sometimes find hybrid waistbands that have a traditional elastic or microfiber waistband that is accented with a drawstring element for style purposes.

Pros: Adjustable fit, comfortable for loungewear or sleepwear and unique style.

Cons: Not as functional as standard waistbands and can be more difficult to quickly take on or off depending on how the string is tied.
