Most of us have that fun pair of underwear stuffed in alongside our more practical pairs, but for a clothing item that gets worn almost every day, wouldn’t it be nice if it pulled a little more weight in your wardrobe? I’m talking super functional, extra comfortable underwear that are kind of a little weird. And it’s out there! Amazon — home of everything that is unusual and wonderful — has a slew of
strange but genius underwear that you never even knew you needed. And there is something for everyone.
Wearing a super tight dress? There are panties for that. Traveling and don’t want to worry about your valuables? Stick them into a zippered pocket in your undies. Are you a runner, yogi, or kick boxer? You can find underwear that’s designed specifically for workouts. Heavy period? You guessed it, there is
a pair of underwear that can help you with that, too. Want a pair of underwear with a cushioned seat? That’s right, you can actually purchase a pair of padded panties.
No matter what you’re looking for when it comes to your undergarments,
there are undies out there for you. So toss out those old tattered whitey tightys and add a few of these bizarre briefs to your top drawer.
Make Your Period A Little Less Stressful
Keep Your Valuables Safe While You Travel With Secret Pockets
Clever Travel Companion Underwear With Secret Pocket (Sizes XS-3XL) , $30, Amazon
As an avid traveler I can get behind these
undies for overnight trains, bus trips, or long layovers at the airport when you want to keep your valuables secure. They have pockets that can fit your passport, cash, credit cards, keys, and even your cellphone. The pockets are both lined and zippered so you know your belongings will be safe.
Super Stretchy Panties For When You Need Them
Add Some Oomph To Your Look
La Reve Butt Lifter Padded Panty (Sizes S-L), $10-$15, Amazon
Skip squatting and lift and shape your backside with
butt padded undies. The removable butt lifting pads can be placed into individual pockets on the outside of the panties, and they're designed to look good under any fabric or type of clothing. But I think the real question here is: will the cushioned seat make sitting more comfortable? I'd like to think the answer is yes.
Filter Your Farts With A High-Tech Pair Of Panties
Flatulence Filtering Briefs (Sizes XS-XL), $38, Amazon
Filter your farts with
a pair of underwear that uses the same carbon filter that’s used in chemical warfare suits. The undies feature a "Zorflex” activated carbon panel in the back. The material is very porous so it traps and neutralizes the odor before it can escape and fill the room.
Easy To Remove Underwear
Slick Chicks Bikini Brief Panty (Sizes XS-XXL) , $26, Amazon
Slick Chicks panties makes changing underwear easier. The
underwear, which was designed with pregnant women, older women, and women with disabilities in mind, has two side fasteners that make changing simpler and faster. Instead of having to bend down to slip on a pair of panties, you can fasten them around your waist. Young and able-bodied? You'll be glad you have these if you ever break or sprain a limb — believe me.
Always The Right Temperature, No Matter What
Prevent Chaffing With Underwear Shorts
Jockey Underwear Skimmies Wicking Slipshort (Sizes S-XXL), $15-$33, Amazon
Prevent chafing from happening with a pair of
slipshorts. They’re perfect to wear under activewear or your regular, everyday clothes. The seamfree undies have longer legs and wide bands which help get chafing under control and keep them in place. They’re made with quick drying microfiber and mesh panels to keep you cool and dry all day.
No More Stubborn Pantylines
Stay Dry And Comfortable While You Workout
New Balance Breathe Thong Panty (Sizes S-XL), $9-$14, Amazon
Hit the gym in a pair of underwear that works as hard as you do. A pair of
moisture wicking underwear will dry quickly, preventing bacterial growth and keep you comfortable. These are made out of breathable mesh and are also seamless so they won’t show through your leggings. They have a four-way stretch which allows you to move the way you want, making them perfect for yoga or pilates.
Don’t Judge This Pair Of Performance Underwear On Looks
ExOfficio Give-N-Go Lacy Thong (Sizes XS-XL), $14-$20, Amazon
There’s more to this pair of
lacy underwear than meets the eye. The highly breathable panties are made with an antimicrobial that helps eliminate odor-casing bacteria in fabric. Plus they’re quick drying, which makes them excellent travel panties, you can wash them in the sink, dry them overnight, and wear them the next day.
Find Unmatched Comfort With Bamboo Undies
Boody Organic Bamboo EcoWear G-String (Sizes S/M-M/L) , $11-$25, Amazon
Finally, a super comfortable
thong. Made out of bamboo fabric, the smooth and hypoallergenic undies won’t irritate skin and they won’t ride up.
