These are briefs with a cloth-like outer cover which is comfortable and gentle against the skin. More and more companies are now bringing out this type because they are discreet and breathable. The soft, non-woven backsheet is less noisy under everyday clothing. They feel more like a regular underwear and have skin-safe closures with hook and loop tabs for fastening and refastening. Because of the outer cloth-like covering, there is no damp or wet feeling when the brief is saturated and the risk of irritation and rashes is minimized. These types of briefs have more breathable zones due to an increase in air circulation and the user stays dry and happy.
