Whether you spend a great deal of time at Victoria's Secret to ensure your underwear drawer is full of matching sets or take more of a nonchalant approach purchasing new underwear only when necessary, one thing is certain: Unless your going commando which is a totally acceptable option; underwear is part of your everyday wardrobe. And today is National Underwear Day! Because there aren't enough fake holidays in the world already!
Now of course boy shorts, cheekies, low-rise bikinis, thongs, and g-strings are all acceptable underwear choices. Actually, wear whatever you want to celebrate, even if it's a C-String or asymmetrical man thong. I'm not here to judge. And, if you're ready to take an even bigger leap with your skivvies selection, may I suggest you check out Etsy? It's a veritable treasure trove of underwear you never knew you needed.
Vintage undergarments, animal panties, and flocks of feathers are just the beginning for bizarre undergarments. So, if you want a break from boring old hot lingerie (or sexy nursing bras thanks to Dita Von Teese), then these seven pairs of underwear are the perfect way to break the mold.
