Hi,

there are no real medical reasons why you should wear underwear, it is a matter of personal choice and comfort. However, as sunshine rightly points out underwear that is too tight is not good for you. Although briefs/skants that are not too tight are not bad for you.

The only time you should consider underwear that provides support is during sporting activity so that you lower the chances of injury.
