On August 5th National Underwear Day provides an opportunity to wear their favorite undergarments. Whether boxers, briefs, panties, tighty-whities, our underthings provide a layer of comfort. 

If you’re like many Americans, your mother warned you to always wear clean underwear.  You never know when you will be in an accident! Although there are probably better reasons to wear fresh underwear, this is the one that most often comes to mind.

Underwear is the layer of clothing worn closest to the body and under the outer clothing. It protects clothing from sweat and provides the wearer protection from cold and chafing. Another benefit to underwear includes support and body shaping.

While some may see these intimate items of our wardrobe as necessities, others utilize them as accessories. Since fabrics allow underwear to be designed for specific needs, a wide variety are made for sports and specific climates. Depending on preference, select garments for both modesty or feel alluring.

A 2012 survey by reveals that the average woman owns 20 pairs of underwear – for every day. Then, they own 14 extra pairs for special occasions.
