I don’t touch the snaps because when I tried on the first innerwear that I bought, the snap broke so it only seems to be a plastic rivet. I don’t need tighter band, anyway. I do pay attention to make sure that the smooth side is against my skin. Also, I was bothered by testicles sticking to my leg, but I solved this problem by wearing a no-show sock over the innerwear and scrotum. Sometimes the sock wants to roll off of my scrotum, so I bought “underwear bracelet” from Amazon to retain the sock.
