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: 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 »

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 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 »

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. 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 »

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 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 »

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? Is all of that really necessary? Is it even all that attractive? Would you wear underwear this complicated? [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

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 women in uniform! Kevlar thongs, anyone? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

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 somehow grab something out of your tote while scanning for explosives? (I still think airport security in Vegas lifted a pair of Cavalli sunglasses when I wasn’t looking.) Well, Sears is selling the perfect solution for hiding your money and valuables while traveling. Dirty underwear! These specially designed drawers have a secret compartment in the fly for stashing whatever you like. But the real kicker is the strategically placed skid marks. Here’s what Sears says about the Brief Safe: “Even the most hardened burglar or most curious snoop will ‘skid’ to a screeching halt as soon as they see them. (Wouldn’t you?)” Um, yes, but I don’t go snooping through people’s stuff anyway. [$12.99, Sears] Keep reading »

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 by Blanqi, for example, an over-the-butt tank top shaper meant to smooth out lines. It also claims to lessen baby weight with its belly support and its “x-shaped back anchors and lifts reducing belly stress.” The question that remains: is it really necessary to wear shapewear when pregnant? Is it useless to try to make yourself seem slightly thinner when you’re obviously carrying? Or, have you tried pregnancy shapers and know them to make having a bun in the oven more comfortable (or more sexy in a dress)? Sound off in the comments below! [Bare Necessities] Keep reading »

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 since it’s already bad enough. Unsurprisingly, my “lingerie” drawers are packed with Spanx and bodyshaping accessories. (OK, so I might have a bit of a body image issue as well. I’m a girl. What else is new? Sigh.) As someone who is already accustomed to hideous underwear, and who prefers the comfort of bed and TV to most physical activity, I was curious when I read about ShaToBu, the “calorie-burning” shaper that’s advertised as “the workout you wear.” ShaToBu might sounds like a Japanese delicacy, but it actually stands for shaping, toning, and burning. These underthings claim to burn calories with their resistance band-like construction, which makes your muscles work harder when you walk. I decided to give these babies a walk myself and here’s what I found… Keep reading »
