HI Im used to wear boxer shorts for my undergarment and i wanna change for briefs is there any halachic problem with it?

Nidda 13b regarding the michnasayim of the kohanim that was made in a way that that area should not be snug. Additionally, see O:CH 74-5, and M:B 74-20, Piskei Teshuvos 74-9, Orach Ne’eman 74-13.
