(Scroll down for video) If you cannot decide if you are a man or a woman, there is one less thing to worry about.
New York based “Play Out,” is selling what is believed to be the first gender neutral underwear.
“The initial concept behind the briefs and boxer trunks, was to take what is good from what is traditionally men’s underwear and make people with a feminine body carry it comfortably,” Abby Sugar, co-founder of Play Out, said.
“We have not found what we wanted out there, so we set out to make it ourselves,” Sugar added. “No matter what the gender identification, out underwear appeal to every gender,” the company’s website states.
“At Play Out, we offer two different styles of underwear, the boxer briefs, boyshort, cut and the trunk cut. We would love to upend the standard language surrounding fashion and gender, but not everyone would know what we are talking about. As a start, though, we have given our two cuts different names in order to differentiate between them,” the company also states.
“Our Boxer Brief cut is slightly shorter and has a flat stitched front. In fashion, this cut pattern is most often designed for women or female bodies. Our Trunks are slightly longer than the boxer briefs, and offer a fabric pocket in the front. This design is most often marketed towards men or male bodies,” the company’s website concludes.
