I wear compression shorts while working out (under regular shorts
). I had several pairs of Brooks cotton (prob 90/10 blend with a stretchy synthetic) ones that have all blown out. All I can find now are 100% synthetic and I find them far less comfortable. Anybody know of a cotton compression short? If so, please let me know brand and model name/number so I can hunt them down.
Thanks

Have you tried under armour compression shorts? It's not cotton, but it's far superior to others. The slick fabric resists chaffing better. If you don't want a shiny fabric, the best you'll find is a polyester blend with a matte finish (I find those too constricting).

If you insist on cotton, try the underwear section of a department store. Some of the major brands have boxer briefs with spandex which hit mid-thigh.
