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.

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.

These are underwear also known as briefs, usually white and is quite popular style of underwear. Although, when you go into high school it can sometimes be view as uncool but this is a rare event. I went into high school wearing white briefs and didn't get anything embarrassing happen to me. In the rare event you do go to a school where 'tighty whities' aren't approved off you can expect frequent wedgies, some spankings and most of all being pantsed to expose your briefs to the public, usually always happens during gym class/PE.
"Hey look! He is wearing Tighty Whities lets get him!"

"Today in school after gym I was hung by my Tighty Whities on a large hook and given a huge Hanging Wedgie. This was followed by Spanking and a Swirly which didn't feel too good at all."

"I usually wear tighty whities because they are the most comfortable underwear and the girls like them."

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"

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.
