5 Tips to buy underwear

In the past, we’ve covered the different underwear styles and what they say about a man’s personality. We’ve also discussed the do’s and don’ts of underwear for both men and women.

Therefore, we figured it was time to share some tips to buy underwear that you can follow whether you decide to get them online or at a store. Scroll down for more!

5 Tips to buy underwear

1) Choose the right size

As we said before, is a common mistake to use underwear that is either too big or too tight.

To help you, many brands (including us) offer size charts on their website that you can use for reference to make sure you buy something that fits.

Even if you’re usually an M or an L, we would advise paying attention to what every brand says about their sizes since they can be slightly different.

2) Start with the basics

Similar to most things in life, it’s important to cover the basics when it comes to undies.

If you’re a girl, you’ll need white, black and nude underwear since those three will go with pretty much every outfit. When it comes to styles, you’ll need bikinis, G strings and comfy full briefs along with supportive bras for any occasion.

If you’re a guy, go for boxer briefs, boxer shorts, and briefs in colors such as black, white, gray and navy blue.

Once you got the basics, you can start adding fun, colorful options for special occasions, if you know what we mean.

3) Invest in high-quality

The quality of your underwear is important to guarantee its overall durability.

Whether you buy separate pieces, sets or packs, make sure you invest in high-quality undergarments that will stay with you for longer.

However, keep in mind that you can find great undergarments at a good price since both things are NOT mutually exclusive (go to our shop here).

4) Keep an eye out for online deals

Online underwear shopping offers you the possibility to get special deals that you won’t find at the stores.

Look out for free shipping, coupons, and discounts to make the most out of your shopping experience.

An extra tip? Subscribe to mailing lists to be aware of special sales.

5) Look at online returning policies

Last but not least, don’t forget to read the returning policies before you decide to purchase underwear online.

Most sites won’t allow you to return pieces if they were not what you expected or in your size, so it’s important to know what to expect.

On the other hand, we make it possible for you to return sets to us or exchange them if you don’t like the underwear, which you should keep in mind.

Top 5 Underwear Scenes

It’s not a secret that we love underwear, but movies and TV are also among our favorite things. Therefore, we’re very happy when we get to have both (#NetflixAndChill anyone?), like in some iconic underwear scenes.

Here’s a list of the best cinema and television moments revolving around undies, in our humble opinion.

Top 5 Underwear Scenes

1) Bridget Jones’s big panties

The ladies have a lot of choices when it comes to undergarments. Some are more risqué, while others are all about comfort, but most women have a lot of different kinds of underwear for every occasion.

Whether they admit it or not, a girl’s underwear drawer is not complete without (at least) a stomach-holding panty, to keep it all nice and tight.

In Bridget Jones’s Diary, our beloved leading lady is in the middle of a make-out session with her lover (Daniel Cleaver) when he notices her comfy (or “enormous”) knickers.

The result? A hilarious, unforgettable “hello mummy” moment.

2) Salma Hayek in From Dusk Till Dawn

Director Robert Rodriguez knows a thing or two when it comes to picking sexy leading ladies, but he outdid himself when he chose Salma Hayek for the movie From Dusk Till Dawn.

The Latina actress plays a seductive vampire queen whose steamy dance routine with a snake is still as charming these days as it was when the movie was released.

Fun fact: Some believe that this iconic underwear movie scene inspired Britney Spears for her memorable 2001 MTV Video Music Awards performance.

3) When Joey wore women’s lingerie on Friends

On an episode of Friends, Phoebe tells Joey that she’s wearing her (at the time) boyfriend’s underwear and that he wears hers. A curious Joey decides to give it a try and ends up loving it, perhaps a little too much for Phoebe’s judgment.

The pair discusses the different choices women have when buying underwear, with Joey going crazy over fabrics like cotton, silk, and lace. Can you blame him?

4) Christian Bale in American Psycho

Who would’ve thought that someone with such immaculate white boxer shorts could be so evil?

Christian Bale’s character on American Psycho (called Patrick Bateman) was an expert when it came down to hide his particular interests.

On the outside, he was a wealthy investment banker who would spend his hours among New York’s high society. However, inside the walls of his big mansion, he was also a murderer who enjoyed dancing in his underwear.

Fun fact: Finn Wittrock paid homage to this scene during the Freakshow season of American Horror Story.

5) Tom Cruise in Risky Business

Last but not least: There’s no underwear moment in cinema history as iconic as the infamous Tom Cruise dance in Risky Business.

The scene has been recreated several times in movies and TV shows, ensuring its legacy, and white briefs will always remind you of the routine, even if you haven’t watched the whole movie.

In 1992’s movie Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone plays Catherine Tramell, a woman accused of killing a rockstar during sex.

While her interrogation was in process, Catherine would do anything to confuse and shock the investigators. Her antics included smoking and crossing her legs while wearing and skirt and no underwear.

We know this moment is, technically, not an underwear scene, but that’s exactly why it’s so iconic!

Sharon Stone served another movie moment that’s been recreated over and over again.

6 Underwear Do’s and Don’ts

As with most things related to fashion, there’s a lot of underwear do’s and don’ts to take into consideration.

To write this list, we thought about what the trends are, what the underwear is going to be used for, and the kind of clothing that would go with it. We also talk a bit about the importance of choosing the right underwear for your body type, and how to take care of your undergarments.

Scroll down to find out what you can do to make sure you make the most out of your underwear!

Underwear Do’s and Don’ts

1) Do: Pick underwear that is your actual size, and fits you properly.

Don’t: Use underwear that is too tight.

It is a common mistake to buy undies or bras that are not in the correct size.

Using the wrong size of underwear feels uncomfortable, looks bad and can even damage your health, so please choose wisely! Learn more about this topic here.

2) Do: Pay attention to fabrics.

Don’t: Buy underwear without looking at its materials.

Whether you buy underwear made out of synthetic or organic material, keep in mind that the wrong kind of fabric can cause rashes, allergies and other skin issues.

It’s important to be aware of how sensitive your skin is before you move onto your next shopping spree. Here are some useful tips to find it out.

3) Do: Be aware of trends.

Don’t: Go overboard with what’s current.

Not every trend works for everybody. While it’s good to be aware of what’s going on in the fashion world, including underwear, you still need to make sure you’re buying things that fit you and your personality.

Furthermore, sometimes trends can be a little… odd. Sticking to the classics will never go out of style.

4) Do: Think about the whole outfit.

Don’t: Ruin what you’re wearing with underwear that doesn’t match.

underwear do's and don'ts

This one is for the ladies: Avoid wearing underwear that doesn’t go with the rest of the outfit. Before you leave the house, make sure that the color of your undergarments doesn’t stick out for all the wrong reasons.

If you’re going to wear something tight, take a look in the mirror to avoid camel toe and choose underwear that compliments your figure. Keep everything in its place!

 

5) Do: Hand-wash your underwear.

Don’t: Throw your undies in the washing machine (unless you have no choice).

Underwear is probably the most delicate kind of clothing and, if you want to extend its life, you need to take care of it correctly.

Putting your bras, panties, boxers or briefs in the washing machine can damage their overall elasticity, take a toll on the fabric and details, so we would advise you to stick to hand washing.

However, if you’re in a rush, put your undies inside a washing bag, use a special detergent for delicate clothes and start the washing machine cycle.

Don’t forget to air dry! (in case of doubt, look at the washing instructions).

Underwear do: Air dry your undies

6) Do: Change your underwear constantly.

Don’t: Keep the same pair of undies on after working out.

Last but not least, at this point, everyone should know to change underwear constantly, particularly after exercising.

However, it’s still a (sadly) common thing to keep wearing the same pair of panties or boxers after sweating, which can lead to infections.

Please, don’t forget to put on another pair of clean undies whenever you get a chance to!
