How to Select Muay Thai Shorts?
Hi guys! Are you about to buy a new pair of Muay Thai shorts but still having trouble which brand and style you should get? You might find that there are so many choices and types of boxing shorts but if you ask me if you’re not in a tournament to fight professionally, any Muay Thai boxing shorts will do just fine. Any styles or designs are good for the sports but what you have to concern about is the material used to make those shorts.
The most famous and most recommended for a pair of Thai boxing shorts is Satin. However, it is also possible to find Nylon, Cotton or Polyester Blend Muay Thai shorts these days. Just like your normal clothes you might want to find out what are the differences between each material and what are the advantages and disadvantages of these fabrics? Satin for example give the smoothness and lightness to the boxer. The fabric is cool which really suit the fighting combat sport that always make you feel hot and sweat. Satin will dry the fastest comparing to the other fabrics.
Look for boxing shorts that come with elastic waist band with tie down or with drawstring inside or outside that will allow you to adjust the size to fit your waist. And for this modern world, all clothes you choose should be safe for machine wash. So make sure the Muay Thai shorts you are buying is machine washable.
Good Thai boxing shorts should have wide legs just your boxers that not only give you the most comfort but also the freedom in movement. I can assure you that all Muay Thai shorts you will get from Thailand will mostly be made by Satin with wide legs that won’t disturb you in any type of boxing training and fighting.
However, it is hard to purchase clothing product from Asia because the sizing is quite confusing. In Thailand we define the size by measuring around your waist in inch unit not centimeter unit. So if you regularly buy clothes or in this case Thai boxing shorts, I want to suggest you to get a measuring type like the one that tailors use.
Every store that you want to buy the sport shorts should provide the size table for you to help you choose the correct size of apparel. The size should come from the factories or manufacturers of Thai clothes like Raja, Twins, Top King or Windy.
Today there are some customized shorts available online that allow you to design your own shorts which most customers really dig. That is a really good idea for boxing shorts.
