Fashion First Aid Underwear: The Thong That Wasn’t

For some, thongs are a natural staple, either for their sexiness or utilitarian panty-line reduction value. The rest of us can’t stand butt floss, but make our cracks endure it when need be. The latter may want to check out this solution: seamless boyshorts by Fashion First Aid. With heat-sealed seams and some sort of…

Show Your Eco-Support: “Green” Underthings

As of today, there’s no excuse for wearing those holey, chewed-up underoos we all own. Not only are they not cute, they are slowly and silently killing the planet. (Well, kinda.) Pact, a brand new line of eco-friendly underthings by famed industrial designer Yves Behar, is upping the, er, (p)ante on Victoria and her secrets.

Cellulite-Busting Undies Restocked, Mass Hysteria Ensues

It’s a good day for thigh-obsessed Londoners. Why? Because their beloved cellulite-busting panties are finally back in stores. Scala Bio Fir Anti-Cellulite knickers, which sold out completely within 24 hours when they first reached stores in May, have now exclusively returned to John Lewis, a British chain store. The “miracle” undies promise to help wearer…

Crave: Lululemon Ta Ta Tamer II Sports Bra

When it comes to exercising, rarely do we expect fun. But getting our asses to the gym is bad enough without having to stuff the girls into ill-fitting sports bras, cutting off circulation and inspiring fits of anger while we’re operating heavy machinery. Large-chested girls everywhere know what we’re talking about: sports bra feels more…

Fundies: Underwear For Two

I am a big fan of “alone time” and “space,” which is one of the many reasons I will not be buying a pair of Fundies underwear anytime soon. Some things in life were indeed built for two: See-saws, cats cradle, thumb war, patty cake, etc. Underwear, not so much. Perhaps I am just a…

Fight Farts With Anti-Flatulence Underwear

I was trying really hard not to mock the daylights out of Under-Ease, the anti-flatulence underwear from the peeps at Under-Tec, but I failed. You gotta admit, the name does not inspire confidence. Still, the eau de fart, or more officially referred to as malodorous flatus, is a literal bummer. If you think about it,…

Online Lingerie Sale Listings

We love fancy undies here at The Frisky, but when it comes to a decision between some good ‘ol cotton briefs for $10 and a lacy, do-me-now pair totally taking advantage of our wallets for $100, granny panties sometimes win. But in a world where pretty much everything is on sale these days, pretty pantie…

iPanties: Unlock Your Crotch

Apple’s ubiquitous “i” has found its way to our nether regions — or, at least the fabric that covers them. iPanties are the latest in a long list of products to get “i”dolized. With a “slide to unlock” guide along the crotch, these panties are cute and helpful…and the possibility for downloadable applications are endless.

Tricky Bras For Tricky Dresses

I’ve always been a bit envious of friends who could go sans bra without feeling crazy self-conscious. That level of hippie-esque chest freedom, I figured, has to be awesome.

So, I tried it and going braless is definitively not awesome, if you ask me. That said, being married to a bra shouldn’t kee…

“Miracle Bra” Saves A Woman’s Life!

Another reason you bra-less babes should wear a brassiere … Super-supportive underwear saved the life of a 57-year-old woman in Detroit when it deflected a bullet. A group of men broke into her neighbor’s house, and when she spotted them, one of the men fired a gun at her. Little did he know, she wa…

A Little Emancipation For Your Crotch

The great panties debate — thongs, boy shorts, or granny panties — just got a new contender now that Wacoal, a Japanese lingerie company, is selling loincloths for women. Loincloths, called “fundoshi” in Japanese, are traditionally worn by men, but are rare nowadays. Women, however, could bring them back into fashion since they’re more liberating…

Seven Ways To Say I Love You Silk Boyshorts

Normally I’m skeptical of any messages across your bum (juicy?), but Mary Green’s Seven Ways to Say “I Love You” Silk Boyshorts ($173 for the set at figleaves.com) are just too adorable to ignore. (It doesn’t hurt that the silkiness of the fabric offsets the boyishness of the boyshorts!) Each day of the week you…
