Everything is evolving.
With new changes almost every day, people are ditching old things and trying out their newer counterparts. This can also be said for underwear as people are saying no to pants and boxers and going for new options to wear beneath their outfits.
Here are some other types you should know and maybe try?
The mankini is a sling swimsuit designed for men. These are one-piece swimsuits which are supported by fabric at the neck. In practice, sling swimsuits provide as little, or even less, coverage (or as much exposure) as a bikini. They were actually designed without waistbands and a fly for sunbathing and spa purpose, but now a more publicly acceptable version has been designed.
The thong is a garment generally worn as either underwear or as a swimsuit in some countries. When it is viewed from the front, it typically resembles a bikini bottom, but at the back, the material is reduced to a minimum. Thongs are almost always designed to cover the genitals, anus, and perineum, and leave part or most of the buttocks uncovered.
A jockstrap is an undergarment for supporting the male genitalia during cycling, contact sports or other vigorous physical activity. A jockstrap consists of a waistband with a support pouch for the genitalia and two elastic straps affixed to the base of the pouch and to the left and right sides of the waistband at the hip.
The C-String is narrow but doesn’t have the supporting string around the wearer’s hips/panty line, leaving just a sideways C shaped piece between the legs. This is held in place firmly by a flexible internal frame. Since there is no material around the waist, the C-string completely eliminates the panty lines which thongs and other underwear create
A tanga is a pair of briefs consisting of small panels connected by strings at the sides. There are tanga briefs both for men and for women.
