Q: What is a jockstrap?
A: A jockstrap is a supportive undergarment worn by men during sports or other physical activities. It typically consists of an elastic waistband, a protective pouch for the genitalia, and two elastic straps that run from the base of the pouch to the waistband at the back.
Q: What is the difference between a jockstrap and a thong?
A: A jockstrap has a protective pouch for the genitalia and two elastic straps that run from the base of the pouch to the waistband at the back, while a thong typically has a narrow strip of fabric that runs between the buttocks. Jockstraps are designed for support and protection during physical activities, while thongs are typically worn for aesthetic or fashion purposes.
Q: What size jockstrap should I get?
A: It's important to get the right size jockstrap to ensure proper support and comfort. We recommend measuring your waist and referring to our size chart to find the best fit for you. If you're unsure, feel free to message us and we'll be happy to assist you.
Q: Are jockstraps comfortable to wear?
A: Yes, jockstraps are designed to provide support and comfort during physical activities. With the right fit, you should hardly even notice you're wearing one!
Q: How do I know if I'm wearing my jockstrap correctly?
A: The elastic straps of the jockstrap should fit snugly around your buttocks, while the protective pouch should be positioned securely over your genitalia. If you experience any discomfort or shifting during physical activities, adjust the straps or pouch accordingly.
Q: How do I care for my jockstrap?
A: We recommend following the care instructions on the label, but generally, it's best to hand wash your jockstrap with mild detergent and air dry it. Avoid using fabric softeners or bleach, as these can damage the elastic and fabric.

A: Yes, we offer a variety of colors and styles to suit your individual preferences and needs. Check out our website or message us for more information.

A: While jockstraps are primarily designed for sports and physical activities, some men do wear them for everyday use. It ultimately comes down to personal preference and comfort.
Q: Can I wear a jockstrap for swimming?
A: Jockstraps are not designed for swimming and may not provide adequate support or protection in water. Instead, we recommend wearing a swim brief or swim trunk specifically designed for swimming.
Q: Can jockstraps be worn for weightlifting?
A: Yes, jockstraps can provide support and protection during weightlifting and other strength training exercises. However, some weightlifters may prefer to wear compression shorts or briefs for added support and coverage.
Q: How do I know if I need a cup in my jockstrap?
A: Cups are typically used for high-impact sports such as football, hockey, and baseball, where there is a risk of blunt force trauma to the genitalia. If you participate in these sports, we recommend wearing a jockstrap with a cup. Otherwise, a regular jockstrap should provide adequate support.
Q: Can I wear a jockstrap under my compression shorts?
A: Yes, you can wear a jockstrap under your compression shorts for added support and protection during physical activities. Just make sure that the waistbands of the two garments don't overlap or bunch up.
Q: Can jockstraps prevent injuries during sports?
A: Jockstraps can provide support and protection for the genitalia during physical activities, which may reduce the risk of injury. However, they cannot completely prevent injuries and should not be relied upon as the sole means of protection.
Q: Do jockstraps have any health benefits?
A: Jockstraps can provide support and reduce friction during physical activities, which may be beneficial for athletes and those with sensitive skin or medical conditions such as varicoceles. However, there is limited scientific evidence to support any significant health benefits.
Q: Can jockstraps cause infertility?
A: There is no scientific evidence to suggest that wearing a jockstrap can cause infertility. However, prolonged and excessive use of tight-fitting underwear and other restrictive clothing may affect sperm production and motility.
Q: Can jockstraps be worn by women?
A: While jockstraps are primarily marketed towards men, women can also wear them for sports and physical activities. Some women may find them more comfortable and supportive than traditional sports bras.
Q: Are jockstraps appropriate for children?
