I threw away all my underwear today. Scratch that. Today, I threw away all of my underwear that would be classified as “lacy little things,” “thongs,” or, in Victoria’s Secret parlance, “cheekies.” Scratchy, itchy, barely-there? It had to go.
I have never lived alone,… More »
Warning, the commercial for Liquid Lapdance, the world’s first male undergarment designed specifically for lap dances, is very NSFW and it contains a simulated lap dance that looks nothing like any I’ve ever seen before (and I’ve been to a few strip clubs in my time). But, let’s watch it together and try to make sense… More »
Forget that cotton scent. Thanks to Le Slip Francais, men will soon have the option of wearing scented underwear that smells of musk and pears, France’s The Local reports.
The French undergarment company has raised more than 19,000 euros (about $25,000) on a crowdfunding site to launch its “Indomitable” brand, which promises afresh scent for up… More »
So many tacky things come from Australia (see also: “Crocodile Dundee”), and Durex’s new “Fundawear” collection is no exception. The condom brand spent countless R&D dollars to create a new kind of underwear with sensors attached that allow lovers to touch each others parts from far away. Yes, technology!
The company employed technology… More »
French retailer Inderwear describe their String Latéral Flash Bleu Alter underwear as “original and ultra sexy” one-sided g-strings that provide “comfort and lateral support by the [fabric’s] high elastane content.”
I would like to hear from the guys here. Is the one-sided banana hammock thong a comfortable cut? Just curious. I would like… More »
Spring Cleaning Week is forcing me to confront my hoarding tendencies. I know that hoarding is a serious mental illness that causes severe problem for many people. I don’t mean to use the term with any disrespect. I’m not a hoarder by any stretch of the imagination. But let’s just put it this way: I… More »
High school students wear underwear. Middle schoolers, even!
Crazy, I know. That’s who Victoria’s Secret’s new line, Bright Young Things, is targeting: the girls who are a little too young for the Pink line of mostly cotton panties, thongs, sweatpants and tees.
This is making lots of people upset.

We’ve all heard/seen/experienced that moment of horror when there’s a blood stain on your pants. Whether it happened at the grocery store or in front of your besties, it’s kinda embarrassing. But have no fear, a new line of underwear has been developed to prevent that from ever happening again! Enter Thinx: a “period underwear” company… More »
A few weeks ago, we asked readers to vote on a post they wanted me to write. The winner was BS facts about panties everyone thinks is true. Here it is!
It’s weird how we learn stuff about how to be a woman, isn’t it? I don’t know about you, but my mom… More »
Transgender women make up an ever-growing demographic, so it would make sense that new businesses would crop up to attend to their specific needs. Chrysalis Lingerie is special lingerie marketed to trans women, and it comes complete with a power-mesh panel that’s designed to create a seamless effect, so that those who wish to “pass” More »
Clicking around the Dear Kates website after I saw someone post about it on Facebook, I was dying to know what made these plain-colored panties so special that they could get away with charging roughly $35 a pair. It was on the FAQ page that I finally got my answer: Dear Kates are three-layered panties that… More »
Timed to coincide with tonight’s telecast of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, some activist types launched “PINK loves CONSENT,” a Victoria’s Secret parody peddling anti-rape panties. “To win back customers it has alienated with its ‘rape culture’ styles,” an activist who insisted she worked for Victoria’s Secret told Jezebel, the brand would replace apparently rape-friendly slogans like “SURE THING” with rape-thwarting… More »
I hate wearing bras. Ugh. My full C cup ta-tas require the utmost support. Whenever I start complaining about how girls have to wear uncomfortable underwear I just remember my foremothers who had to wear all that full-bodied corset BS that I am pretty sure was damn close to torture. In order to quell my… More »
I bought a pair of these panties in black lace for the same reason anyone buys anything at Target: I was there to buy a box of Luna Bars and saw them hanging on a rack under a big $5 sign. I knew they were cute and cheap, but I didn’t know they would quickly… More »

The ’90s brought us the blessed thong, which eradicated our panty lines forever. But then low-rise, skinny jeans became a thing and the combination of the two make a very unhappy marriage. Gravity makes the thong rise while skinny jeans descend creating the perfect environment for thong slips to occur. Miranda Kerr experienced this first… More »
I don’t know about you all, but my lingerie budget is really cramping my everything-else budget. So I’m always thrilled to find a new outlet for my lingerie fetish and I am obsessed with Lace, the new lingerie line at ShoeDazzle. Yup, ShoeDazzle, the shoe-of-the-month club that you’ve probably seen Kim Kardashian promoting, sells sexy… More »
When I first saw these Stella McCartney panties, I thought I was staring at pubic hair sculpted in the shape of the Weezer logo. It was a very confusing moment for me. [$52, Revolve Clothing] … More »
