Figuring out what to do with old or unwanted undies is quite the conundrum, am I right? You can’t take them to the Salvation Army; you can’t use them as dishrags ’cause that would be weird, but it feels wrong to throw them away. Swiss-born artist Pipilotti Rist figured out just how to recycle undergarments: turn them into art. Though I kid, “Massachusetts Chandelier,” featuring undies collected from the artist, her mother and friends and hung in tiers illuminated by video light projections, is actually quite beautiful … Keep reading »
I thought unintentionally exposed thongs and butt cleavage were things of the past for most women. Through trial and error, we’ve learned that low-rise panties and long tops are best for low-rise jeans. And speaking of low-rise jeans, most women I know have given up on that teeny-bopper look, choosing jeans and pants that have a rise closer to their belly buttons. So the reasoning behind My Panteez, thong underwear with a sheer waistband, is a little confusing. Those women still walking and sitting with their thongs exposed probably desire that look, and My Panteez is lost on them. I can, however, see My Panteez working under skin-tight dresses or skirts. You know, the kind Kim Kardashian wears. [My Panteez] Keep reading »
To add to the ever growing list of vampire-inspired products, Marks and Spencer designed a line of underwear based on “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, called R-Pants. And though these are technically men’s underwear, it wouldn’t be shocking to see girls all over buying them to be closer to Robert, in a weird sort of way. The undies are a low-rise style that fit under skinny jeans to accommodate the latest trend of slim pants, clearly a nod to the hipster style that’s taken over men’s fashion. While Pattinson won’t be starring in the campaign, the line is sure to sell out once it hits stores in September. We just don’t think that men will be the ones buying them. [Guardian] Keep reading »
I can’t remember how I came across the website for Male Power underwear, but once I was there, everything that came afterward was a blur. So many strange pairs of underpants for men. Butt-less underpants. BVDs with wang hammocks. And that oh-so-special pair for the holidays. So … disturbing. And yet titillating! But in a deeply disturbing titillating way. Check out a few of our favorite freaky guy underpants after the jump. If you can handle it, girlfriend. [Male Power] Keep reading »
For some of us (by which I mean me), mustering up the energy to wear a thong is no small task. The whole dental floss in the arse thing just feels a little unnecessary, amiright? So when I saw this picture, I kind of got exhausted just looking at it. Straps, lace, mesh, clasps, what? Is all of that really necessary? Is it even all that attractive? Would you wear underwear this complicated? [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
Men in uniform know not everything that explodes in your underpants is a party. That’s why a British military accessories shop is selling blast-proof boxers made from knitted Kevlar. These powerful manties can stop shrapnel in its tracks and save a soldier from a painful groin injury.
But hey, don’t not forget our women in uniform! Kevlar thongs, anyone? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
