I just bought Men Gymnastics shorts from GK Elite. Like these pictures,

In Women's Gymnastics, they don't wear undergarments underneath leotards.
However, I assume Men wear undergarments FruitLoom/Hanes (boxers, underwears) with Gymnastics shorts, correct?

I just started gymnastics and some of these shorts go lower than my Hanes boxers, etc.

My son has always just worn boxer briefs. He does buy shorter, but never worried about it.

They wear underwear. GK makes a longer short as well. Be careful of underwear. If you can, match the short colors. When my son was little he wore green boxer briefs under navy short shorts, and when he did a handstand, you could see the green undies

My son wears briefs specifically for meets, just to be sure that nothing shows.

My level 9 son wears briefs for practice and competition…says they keep everything in place better. He used to wear boxer briefs, but once he started doing crazier stuff as an optional, boxer briefs weren’t providing the security he needed. Haha, fun to be a boy.
