10 Funny, Interesting, and Weird Facts About Your Underwear We men love ladies' underwear - particularly when they are wearing them, or when we get to remove them from you. Knowing how to take them off is pretty much the extent of most men's knowledge of women's underwear. To save our lives, we probably couldn't tell you the difference between a thong and a G-string, or between boy shorts and cheekies. All we know is that they're great to look at. For all the dudes out there wanting to know more - and for the ladies who just find the topic interesting - here are some weird, funny, random, interesting, and OMG! facts about underwear:

1.     Underwear let us know how high-maintenance you are

Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner, PsyD., says that women wearing white cotton panties are usually easier to deal with.


In an interview in Modern Man, Dr. Baumgartner- author of the book You Are What You Wear and clinical researcher - explained that women that prefer simple white cotton undies tend to be lower-maintenance, no-frill types. The simplicity of their underwear show that they're comfortable with themselves, and they can feel sexy without labeling their bottom with bold statements like "This Way to FunTown" or "Sexy Gurl". [1]

2.     Underwear make a lot of people a lot of money

It's estimated that over $30 billion is spent on underwear each year!


It's expected that the market for knit underwear and nightwear (the fancy name that encompasses everything we men know as "lingerie" or "something a little more comfortable") will exceed $70 billion per year by 2015. That's a whole lot of underwear - most of which will end up being paid for from our credit cards! [2]

3.      Everyone has their own unique underwear choice

Out of 125,000 women surveyed: 37% of women prefer Bikini Briefs 23% of women prefer Briefs 19% of women prefer Thongs 17% of women prefer Boyshorts 4% of women prefer other styles


4.     Underwear can be used to make tea

Well, not really, but there is a type of tea called "pantyhose milk tea".
6a00d8341c78d753ef0120a4fddb1c970b-800wi It is a tea found in Hong Kong, and it's actually surprisingly popular there! Made from a mixture of black tea leaves, it gets its name from the cloth through which the tea is strained - it sort of resembles pantyhose, thus it's names of "pantyhose milk tea" or "silk stocking milk tea". [3]

5.     Underwear are often designed by men

The first thong was actually invented by a man - former NYC Mayor Fiorello La Guardia.


It seemed the mayor was offended because the nudie dancers in NYC were showing too much skin, so he had the thong created to cover them up for the World Fair of 1939. Since then, the G-string/thong - and thereby the whale tail that women and men both love to hate - have remained a pretty standard part of women's outfits. [4]

6.     Women own a LOT of underwear

A 2012 study showed that women in the UK own an average of 34 pairs of "knickers", while American women own about 21 pairs each.


If you compare that to the average man's underwear drawer, that's like 5 pairs of underwear for every one that he owns. Plus, if you look more closely, you'll probably find that his have more holes than hers do. Women tend to have a certain number of "everyday" underwear, plus a few extra pairs for those special occasions when she "happens" to take off her dress/pants/skirt. Boy oh boy, do we love those "special" pairs! [5]

7.     Underwear last longer than pets

A survey conducted in 2008 showed some pretty alarming facts: women own underwear that have been with them longer than their boyfriends/husbands.
NONE_FA12_MNWUW004_FWH_Moskova_Fushia-White_MG4Polyamide_WomensUnderwear_0--3d499-XL Research turned up evidence that 15% of women own underwear that were between five and nine years old. (9% of men own pairs more than 10 years old). I don't even want to think about the condition of those poor underwear! They definitely deserve to go to a good home, or maybe to a farm upstate where all of the other underwear go when they get old…

8.     Women don't wear underwear all the time

A USA Today survey found that 1 out of 10 women will avoid wearing underwear to avoid VPL (visible panty lines - for any men that are reading this) and whale tail.
article-1392789-0C58DF8F00000578-571_468x650 Hah! They say that men are the only ones that go commando - and they usually say it with a sort of "Ugh!" look on their faces - but they'll skip out on the underwear too if it suits them. If they're stuffing themselves into an LBD or just want to feel comfortable, 10% of women will just leave the underwear in the drawer! [6]

9.     Underwear can be as annoying as a clingy boyfriend

The USA Today survey mentioned above reported that 27% of women claim that their mood is affected if their underwear are uncomfortable or poorly fitted.


You know how men are always "adjusting" things when they're wearing an uncomfortable pair of skivvies? Well, women can't really make those adjustments, but they'll certainly be as grumpy as a man in a pair of tight jocks. It's not just the poorly-fitted ones, but it's the unattractive ones as well. A lot of the women surveyed said that wearing old, worn, or unattractive underwear can make them grumpy. I 'd say it's a good reason for women to always be wearing beautiful underthings. Hurrah!

10.The color of your underwear says a lot about who you are

Black = practical, courageous, ambitious, strong White = emphasizes natural beauty, self-confident, calm, tender Blue = mystique, pleasant, creative Yellow = cheerful, loving, adventurous Green = relaxed, complete, independent Red = naughty, crazy, full of life tumblr_lqoio5NDyd1qcf25xo2_500

Bonus: Underwear on New Year's Eve

The color of your underwear on New Year's Eve determines the way your year will go - or so the old Spanish superstition says.
For a year filled with success, prosperity, and wealth, wear YELLOW. For a year filled with a whirlwind romance and a passion to make the gods blush, wear RED. For a year of luck in your romantic affairs, wear PINK. meh.ro5891 For a happy year of harmony and peace, wear WHITE. For a year of rockstar health, wear BLUE. For a year of the luck of the Irish in your personal and professional life, wear GREEN.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 1-2 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
