Leap boxers were developed by a female firefighter who struggled to find the right underwear to fit beneath her firefighter's uniform and firefighting gear. After several years and many prototypes she designed the ultimate fit in a woman's boxer short. Leap offers two main types of fabrics: Silky-a stretch satin that glides over the body, and Soft-a blend that feels and wears like the softest stretch cotton. Traditional fit boxers are available in both fabrics and hip-hugger boxers are available in Soft and Silky. All boxers are made to be worn under clothes as regular under-wear but are stylish enough to be worn as active wear, anywhere.
