What is ‘Boxer Bottom’?


If you have been browsing the A Star site for boys leotards, you will have seen the option to add a ‘boxer bottom’ – but what does this mean? Read on to find out…

We sell so many boys leotards every year and we want them to be as comfortable as possible. That is why we give you two options:

Option 1: Standard cut.

This option has a similar cut at the crotch to a brief. Is it the way most leotards are made and is comfortable to wear. Male gymnasts and trampolinists tend to wear shorts or longs over their leotard so this cut can aid keeping you cool during training.

Option 2: Boxer Bottom cut.

This option, as the name suggests, has a crotch area that is similar to boxer shorts. We have had feedback that some find this more comfortable as it fits around the tights. Shorts or stirrups are still needed to be worn over this leotard as they are designed to fit skintight.

So it really is personal preference, but hopefully this information will help you make a more informed decision. If you ever have any questions, you can always contact our helpful team to find out more!
