There’s Julep for nail polish and BirchBox for beauty goodies. So it figures there’s a subscription of-the-month club for frilly underthings, too. It’s called [Enclosed] and you (or a manfriend who is otherwise terrible about picking out knickers) choose the size and style preference and they customize a different pair of panties to send every month. While the options change every month, there are always your favorite cuts to choose from — bikini cut, boyshorts, thongs — and they run the gamut from RRRROWWWW! to sweet. There are even bridal options if you’re looking for a bachelorette party gift. A one-time order from [Enclosed] is $50 or you join for three, six or 12 months for a few bucks less. But with schmancy brands like Eberjey and L’Agent by L’Agent Provocateur on the roster, [Enclosed] is an easy way to freshen up your lingerie drawer — and get a sexy visit from the mailman once a month. (Just kidding, the box is very discreet.) Do you really need another reason to toss those period panties to the curb? [[Enclosed]] [Image of panties in a lingerie drawer via Shutterstock]
I’m the kind of girl who wears a bra all the time. I haven’t gone completely bra-less since 1993. My version of going bra-less is a bralet under a shelf bra, with my arms folded, propped upon a pillow as I watch Netflix Sunday mornings. Unless I bring my pair to the party, good luck finding my goodies through a maze of mixed support.
To the annoyance of many women with big or small boobs whose bras are like a blankie of comfort, designers who create tops or dresses that are strapless, backless, or with cutout details are malicious. What the hell kind of bra am I suppose to wear under that halter crop top? I don’t want to have to worry about my tits going left when I go right. God forbid there’s a strong, cool breeze. Anyone else feeling a tad nippley?
To all the women who feel comfortable going bra-less, keep doing what your doing. For the rest of us, let me save you some time and explain the reality of each of these popular solutions. Keep reading »
Nylon stockings have an impressive history in the United States, dating back to 1939. Making a debut at the New York World’s Fair, affordable, durable, and sheer nylon stockings quickly gained popularity in the early 1940s before being rationed during WWII. Post-war “nylon riots” ensued when droves of stocking-deprived women descended upon the product’s return to shelves. Keep reading »
It’s National Underwear Day! (Yes, it’s a thing.) In honor of this obscure holiday, let’s all take a moment to appreciate our panties. Reflect for a moment about the pair you put on this morning, and say thank you. Thank you, panties, for getting us through the good times and the bad. Week after week, they’ve covered our cracks, not to mention we don’t know what we would do in a skirt without them. If panties could talk, we’re sure they’d have a lot to say, but luckily they’re our silent partners in crime… Keep reading »
Two of my favorite things in this whole world are peaches and butts. Put those two together, and you have the greatest lovechild of all time, not including Blue Ivy Carter. So what is a peach butt, you ask? Keep reading »
Three forward-thinking women have put their heads together to create the ultimate in lingerie — pretty, stain-resistant underwear meant to help you survive your period without ruined clothes and embarrassing moments. Why didn’t anyone come up with this sooner!?
The panties are called THINX, and they’re the brain child of twin sisters Radha and Miki Agrawal and their friend Antonia Dunbar. After facing one too many public period disasters, the ladies got fed up with the cultural stigma surrounding menstruation — and how that stigma has prevented innovation in the products we use to manage our time of the month. THINX undies are made with “four-layer technology” to prevent leakage, but are still thin enough to feel something like real underwear. They’re offered as hiphuggers, thongs, and even a fancy lacy variety. Keep reading »
