What Undergarments Should You Wear?

By: Heather Colman

Undergarments are also called underwear and lingerie. These
garments are worn under the clothes, next to the skin. The
reasons for wearing undergarments can vary like warmth, comfort,
and sanitation. One wears underwear also for erotic display.
Many people may not be aware of the fact that an undergarment
also has religious implications. For example, Mormons must wear
special underwear each and every day.

Men' underwear

Men's underwear are of two types. The first type is boxer
shorts, which are short in length and have a loose fit. The
second type are called briefs, which have a tight fit and are
smaller in size. The British often call briefs as Y-fronts.

Women's lingerie

Women's undergarments are usually called lingerie. This term is
derived from the French language. In the medieval period women
used to wear tight fitting clothing known as a chemise and they
used to often pair it with braies-like leg wrappings.

western culture. It was to be the final barrier before nudity.

Types of underwear

Briefs-which can be traditional diagonal flap, pouch or low cut

Bikini-High cut, low cut or string bikini

G-strings-Thongs and athletic

In addition to these, there are other types of men's underwear
available. They include long underwear, union suits, etc. Some
underpants also have a fly. These typically do not permit
disconnection at the waist. Flexibility permits them to be taken
on and off. Generally the fly of underpants avoids revealing the
skin just by an overlap of cloth devoid of buttons, etc. Such
flies may be criteria for boxer shorts but is not appropriate
for outerwear.

Now days, undergarments, like edible underwear, are specially
manufactured for sexual purposes. These types of undergarments
are worn just to arouse the partner when involved in a sexual

Not wearing an undergarment:

In colloquial American, freeballing is a referral to men not
wearing underpants and freebuffing for females not wearing
lingerie. Many people don't consider underwear to be an
indispensable part of sanitation. There are certain clothes that
don't require any extra clothing underneath like cycling shorts
or kilts.
