6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying New Underwear

Where do you buy your underwear? When was the last time you shopped for underwear? Do you even know where you got the pair you're wearing right now? If the answer is a little hazy, the chances are very real that you’re on underwear autopilot.

But here’s the thing. If you don’t put any thought into the underwear you buy, you’re short-changing yourself on the foundational piece for every outfit. And you might run into some underwear-related mishaps that can dampen even the best of days. So before you start picking out undies at random, ask yourself a few questions first to make sure you get what you need on the first try.

Am I Really Wearing the Right Size?

The answer isn’t always as simple as looking at the tag of your current underwear. Different companies use significantly different sizing. If you’re trying out a new brand for the first time, check the size chart and measure yourself. Underwear should fit snugly without causing any bulging or leaving any crease marks in your skin. Too tight, and it can cause irritation and cut off your circulation. Too loose, and it will be sliding all over the place.

What Style Should I Go For?

Finding your favorite style of undies for daily wear may require some experimentation. The different cuts offer varying levels of coverage, and each style is flattering for certain body types. While it’s okay to find a style you love and stick with it, some outfits require a little forethought for your underwear. You should actively try to avoid underwear lines and visible leg bands or waistbands - especially for your professional attire.

Consider how much coverage you need on your legs to protect from chafing, especially on hot days. And if you like to wear shorts in the summer, you don’t want your underwear peeking out the bottom! So whatever style you choose, it should be at least an inch or two shorter than your outerwear.

Do I Need to Replace My Old Underwear?

No matter how well made a pair of underwear is, all undies have a shelf life. If a pair of underwear has lost a little bit of give and doesn’t fit as snugly as it used to, you don’t necessarily have to toss it just yet. On the other hand, if it’s not providing the support you expect or staying in place anymore, it’s time to let go. If your underwear has holes or is smelly after the wash, ditch it. Tattered undies need to retire in peace.

How Many Pairs Do I Really Need?

Not everyone has the dresser space to maintain a diverse wardrobe of underwear, so if you’re running out of room it’s a good idea to conduct an underwear census before you
