Hockey players wear a piece of equipment that multi-tasks very nicely. It's basically compression shorts with a jockstrap built in. On the outside is a pouch that you can easily put a cup in and then take it out for washing. On the legs there are garters or velcro to hold up the socks. In the old days they wore a cup protector and a separate garter belt.
Just slipping a cup in your shorts isn't going to work. It has to be held in place or it will move around and that's no good.
