Four and half month after surgery, mostly dry, just small squirts. Want to let go of the pads and the one size to small, whitey  tidy's.
Who makes a  thick pair of shorts that could help me out, do'nt think I want to double up two pair.

I've heard some guys talk about some underware on some internet site on HW, but haven't seen it for a while. It was a little on the expensive side as I remember.

Timm,
Champion makes some shorts with thickness. You can look at their collection online or even better visit a sporting goods shop. Good luck.

I'd go with a thicker pad to avoid ending up with shorts I'd never wear again.

I've got a dozen breifs left over not being used since I'm a boxer guy smhair
