UNDERWEAR

ExOfficio Briefs
You won't wear anything more often than these quick-dry, odor-fighting undies. The men's Give-N-Go Boxer Briefs ($25, S-XXL; pictured) are made from a stretchy synthetic fabric with a fitted, no-chafe boxer cut. Our female testers loved the Soytopia Bikini Briefs ($18, XS-XL); the soy/nylon/Lycra fabric feels soft as silk and breathes like cotton. exofficio.com. Reader service #121
