The Victoria’s Secret Runway Show: A Sneak Peek At The Crazy Outfits

Surely, there is nothing that says “America” like the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Every year, a posse of well-known (and some not so much) and drop-dead gorgeous women parade up and down a runway wearing underwear paired with totally strange costumes. It’s like Halloween threw up on Christmas and then someone threw a pair of… More »


Blast Boxers: For The Guy Who Is Really Protective Of His Privates

We understand that guys hold their private parts in the greatest of esteem (hence the term “family jewels”), but perhaps some men might be a bit too overprotective of their junk. Which is probably why Blast Boxers exist. Originally developed for men in the military, the underwear features a special high-strength material that acts as… More »


Padded Underwear Gives Men A Bigger Bulge

They’ve already created a Spanx-like tummy-tucker undershirt for men, and now Marks & Spencer, the British version of Target, is introducing “bum lift” underpants, that claim to lift men’s bootays by about a fifth, and “frontal enhancement” underwear that uses an “integral shelf,” to give men what the company describes as a “38 percent visual… More »


Behold, A Sculpture Made Out Of Underpants

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:… More »


Are My Panteez, Sheer Waistband Undies, Necessary?

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… More »


Team Edward Fans Have A Reason To Get Their Panties In A Bunch

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. More »


Male Power Underpants Will Scare The Pants Off You

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… More »


Would You Wear Super-Complicated Underwear?

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? More »


Blast-Proof Boxers Protect A Guy’s Junk From Explosions

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… More »


WTF! Dirty Underwear Is For Hiding Your Valuables?

The folks over at Sears sure do have a sense of humor. You see, carrying your cash and valuables when traveling adds another level to an already stressful situation. Will the hotel maid go snooping in your luggage? Can someone on the plane slip their hand into your carry-on bag while you’re asleep? Will TSA… More »


Maternity Shapewear: Wrong Or Just?

Most of us wear shapewear to try to eliminate any hanging belly. But what if your pooch is something you really can’t get rid of? As in, you’re seven months pregnant and there is definitely a living person in there waiting to come out. Apparently, there’s quite a market for maternity shapewear. Take this getup… More »

We Tried It: ShaToBu, Calorie-Burning Shapewear

I’ll just come out and say it: I wear really ugly underwear. We’re talking, like, epic granny panties here. As a basic type of girl, I’m just not into the sexy thing, so a lot of the time I figure I might as well add some ugly on the inside by wearing some slimming underthings… More »


New Kylie Minogue Video, “All The Lovers,” Features A Lot Of People In Their Underpants

In Kylie Minogue’s new music video, “All the Lovers,” the pop star says all she wants to do is dance, but for Kylie that means floating on a giant mound of half-naked people pawing at each other and her. Maybe this is some sort of new dance? We’ll call it The Love Pile. More »


Walk It Off (Literally) In Fat-Burning Underwear

Losing weight is actually quite a simple mathematical equation. All you have to do is reduce your calorie intake, increase your energy output, or both. However, thanks to the powers of human imagination, a propensity towards laziness, and the invention of Oreo cookies, weight loss has become a rather complicated endeavor, but only of our… More »

Head To Space With Jockey’s New NASA-Approved Fabric

My grandmother always credited undershirts as the key to staying healthy in the winter, and Jockey seems to share her sentiments. The company is reinventing their products with a special fabric originally developed to keep NASA astronauts comfortable during temperature fluctuations in space. For spring 2011 Jockey International will launch a new collection called Smart… More »


Get Stella McCartney’s Fancy Panties At Gap Prices

Remember days of the week underwear? (We were the girls who could never get it right and were always wearing Tuesday’s panties on a Thursday. So rebellious.) Stella McCartney has famously brought back the cute idea with her beautiful lace knickers of the week that come in a charming chest of drawers package. Problem is,… More »


Spanx To Celebs Like Beyonce, The Shapewear Market Is, Uh, Expanding

Shapewear: we used to call them granny panties. And maybe you still do (granny-chic is in now, anyhow), but tummy-tucking undies are no longer for the geriatric set. We’ve seen the signs coming for a while—first with the Spanx explosion (or implosion, if you will), and then with the underwear-as-outerwear trend that began coming down… More »


Phillip Lim’s New Lingerie Line Is For Sweethearts

We love Phillip Lim’s signature 3.1 line, but generally can’t afford too much of it. Lim’s first undergarment collection has just hit boutiques, and we’re a bit ambivalent. On the one hand, the $80-$195 price range makes owning a Lim piece closer within reach; on the other, 100 bones is a lot to drop on… More »
