Like TomboyX, but for bigger hips

TomboyX makes masc-style underwear for people with AFAB-type bodies — but their stuff doesn't fit my partner, who finds it either too tight in the hips or too loose in the waist. Is there similarly masc-coded underwear for people with bigger hip–waist ratios?

Check out Play Out Apparel. Their line is gender-equal and size-inclusive, and they have a pretty comprehensive and descriptive size chart. I have a bigger hip-waist ratio and their boxer brief style works for my hips and thighs.

(Full disclosure: Play Out is my friend's company. I am a paying customer and do not receive any compensation from them.)

I've just bought from GWBB and liked their boxer briefs. Maybe your partner can check their size chart to see if it will work for them?

The MeUndies Men's trunk or Women's Boyshort might work for them. Their product is a combination of micromodal/elastane that holds on well. Personally, I have big hips and like the boyshort.

The MeUndies men's underwear is pretty roomy in the front for people who don't have dicks (which may or may not be a concern depending on whether that might be a dysphoria trigger for them.)

Response by poster: Yeah, avoiding dickroom would be ideal.

If they haven't already, they might want to try the micromodal version of whatever tomboyx drawers they like. I have a pretty big hip-waist ratio, and in my experience, the micromodal fits a lot better and more comfortably than the cotton.
