Never thought I'd be turning to a forum for underwear advice, but I'm lost. I've got a frame that doesn't really fit into anything well: 5'9", 130 lbs. So pretty skinny. For some reason it seems all underwear makers think people who wear smalls have a huge butt that can fill out underwear (and pants). The best fit I've found is Hugo Boss mini briefs in stretch cotton (5% elastane or whatever). I bought a pair of Calvin Klein Air FX in small, but they ride up pretty high in the back and are a bit loose. I want to try some full synthetic, but can't find anything that fits.

I need something that can be worn for at least two days camping and still hold the shape.

This should probably go in the small questions thread, but...

Uniqlo for cheap, slimmer cut options.
Icebreaker and Ibex for merino. I swear by these. No funk and they have a good cut.
Patagonia might be worth a shot...but IME their cut tends towards boxy/large so underwear may veer the same.
