Top 10 Women's Boxer Shorts

Women Are Wearing Boxers As Shorts, And These Are The Pairs They're Buying

Women’s fashion has long been borrowing inspiration from menswear, but this year there’s a trend that’s taking things to the next level: boxer shorts. And while there’s certainly nothing new about stealing a comfortable pair of bottoms from your beau’s underwear drawer before bedtime, this is different because we’re talking about taking boxer shorts to the streets

Recently seen on celebrities like Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber, the underwear-as-outerwear movement is picking up steam. And honestly, what’s not to love? Boxer shorts are usually made from lightweight, breathable materials and feature relaxed silhouettes—meaning, you can enjoy a level of comfort that’s usually only achievable in the privacy of your home. Plus, they don’t require much effort to style despite the high-impact looks they can create. Simply pair them with an oversized button-down shirt or a tank top and a baseball cap, and you’ll be the pinnacle of easy-breezy summer style. 

So, are you ready to take advantage of this trend while it’s hot? If so, look no further than our roundup of the internet’s best fashionable boxer shorts below.

Best Affordable Women's Boxer Shorts

THE STYLE
Speaking of preppy, Gilly Hicks has entered the scene with their own take on the boxer trend. Their boxer shorts are also available in blue and white vertical stripes (as well as two other options), but they're hemmed a little shorter than the prior pair and have a contrasting waistband.

WHAT TO PAIR THEM WITH

Best Women's Silk Boxers

THE STYLE
How about this for luxury: The Eclipse Boxer shorts are made from 100% washable silk. That material is what gives them their drapey, relaxed silhouette, and although they're technically sleepwear, we have a feeling you're not going to want to take them off.

PROMISING REVIEW
Listen to this one, insomniacs: "My wife absolutely loves these new pajama shorts! She literally thinks she sleeps better when she's wearing them, so I'll be buying some more."

Best Unisex Boxers

THE STYLE
One unique thing about Oddobody's Woven Boxers is that they're unisex. While that does increase the chances of your partner stealing them out of your drawer, it also means their construction is more forgiving and relaxed than some other styles.

Best Short Women's Boxers

THE STYLE
Cute and simple, the Aline Boxer Shorts look like they just walked off the set of a coming-of-age film. They have two itty-bitty buttons and an elastic waist designed to hit just below the belly button.

BEHIND THE BRAND
Edikted is one of those up-and-coming clothiers that makes high-quality, trend-forward styles. And while they primarily serve a Gen Z audience, anyone can embrace the "booty off-duty" attitude of their Aline boxer shorts.

Best High-Waisted Women's Boxers

THE STYLE
Craving some Green Juice? If so, you're in luck, because that's the only color Z Supply's Stripe Boxers are available in. Luckily, it's a lovable shade of green, and there's a lot more to like about these shorts (such as their high-rise waistband and lightweight material).

GOOD TO KNOW
According to one reviewer, these are slightly see-through. The good news is that they still make for a fantastic pair of shorts to throw over a swimsuit or snuggle up on the couch in.

Best Cuffed Women's Boxers

THE STYLE
Sunday morning has long been recognized as the coziest part of the week, so the fact that these boxer shorts are named after that sacred time bodes well for their comfort level. They also have a rolled hem, a high-waisted fit, and come in two playful patterns: Pink Stripes and Aqua Gingham.

GOOD TO KNOW
A handful of reviewers mention that these shorts run large, so keep that in mind when selecting your size. And on the topic of sizes, this style is available in options from XS to XL.
