In brief: Support briefs
OK: If I understand your question, you are getting groin pain from loose fitting underwear? If so, first get examined by a physician to rule out hernia.
Next, buy several pair of athletic support briefs ( not just a jock stap). Use Advil or Aleve (naproxen) ( if not allergic ) for pain relief and "sub out"- speak to your coach.
