A synonym for briefs . They are underwear worn for there support purposes, antonym of boxers. The pros of tighty whities are support in gym class and hiding an erection. The disadvantages are that if you are pantsed then your penis will appear smaller, and that they might strangle your penis.

Because of incidents in which prison inmates trousers started to fall down, many teenagers believe baggy pants are cool. Because of that, it became the cool thing to wear boxers instead of old fashioned tighty whities.

Advice if you're going to High School and male. In order to make your life alot easier, wear boxer shorts.
"Nice Tighty Whities, nerd!"

"... Tighty Whities are convenient and supportive"

"So? Boxers are loosy-goosy and cooler!"

White briefs that are supposedly tighter than other briefs and are mainly for "little kids". Many teenagers these days wear boxers or boxer-briefs instead of briefs (or tighty whities) because they think if they wear tighty whities they will be made fun of since they wore it when they were younger and it is supposedly for little kids. Why it's only for little kids and that every guy can't wear them, I'm not sure. However, they do offer more comfort and can hide something that boys don't usually want seen.
One kid in a class of 15 boys wears tighty whities. He goes to school and is seen wearing these. He is laughed at because many people think it's too babyish.

What nerds like me wear. boxer-wearers usually bully anyone caught wearing tighty whities a wedgie. They are good for support, and hold in that part of the body, but you are usually picked on for wearing them, i.e. wedgies, swirlies, pantsed, beat up, called names like nerd, loser ect..
Stephen's all smart and wears tighty whities. I'm gonna go give him a wedgie.

A word commonly used by adolescent girls to describe boys briefs. It is often a condescending remark intended to make the wearer of this type of underwear feel insecure. Wearing this type of underwear is often the result of a humiliating incident at your school. Most teenage boys wear these but keep it a secret because they are afraid that people at school will give them wedgies even though people dont even give wedgies anymore with the exception of Jocks, who are the prime
my girlfriend always giggles when she sees me in my tighty whities. she says there dorky but in a cute way.

i would get giggles from cheerleaders back in high school for them but it had nothing to do with cuteness it had more to do with being pinned down in the middle of the wet football field by the football team wearing nothing but your fruit of the loom briefs.

The simplest form of underwear available to men of all ages. Usually in the color white but briefs made for childen typically have colored designs on them. They fight tightly over the male crotch region (hence the name) and act as a cradle for the testicles and keeps the penis nice and snug with them. Young men are usually ridiculed for wearing tighty whities because of the simple fact that younger boys wear them in childhood. For comfort, these are the way to go, but don't get caught wearing them!
Tighty whities fit great on me, but I prefer the awesome feel of boxer briefs!

a tight white brief and flattering underwear style preferred by me and other heterosexual men. although often ridiculed they also have been know to arouse the opposite sex do to the visibility of the wearers genitals. A complementary part of my wardrobe and conveniently sold in a pack inexpensive at retailers such as target and wal-mart. Briefs are a popular style of mens underwear commonly white and made by fruit of the loom, hanes and other brands.
Girl: "you wear tighty whites?"
Guy: "yea i prefer them to boxers"

Girl: Do you like boxers or briefs?
Guy: mostly briefs

Girl: can you get for me?

Guy: sure (reaches to high shelf as shirt goes up revealing white waistband)
Girl: tighty whities? oooh fruit of the loom thats a good choice :)

white briefs
I wear tighty-whities everyday, and I like them, but everyone at school gives me wedgies. I recently received a flagpole wedgie by my "friends"
