I like white bikini cotton underwear. For some reason it makes me feel clean lol.  Hard to buy a matching set if your big breasted but small on the bottom :(  Not all big breasted women are big women! They need to let you CHOOSE the sizes you want to match, not put them together in sets!

I match bra color to my shirt and underwear to the skirt or pants.  But they are also matching in their own way.  And if I do not have a bra that matches a shirt - I wear a white one.  But never do I wear white underwear.

Well, most of the time, I don't wear any.

Pretty lame article.. Until recent weight loss, I wore only white because that was the choice in the store.. So to celebrate the weight loss, I recently bought 2 multi-colored packages.  If I happen to match my outer clothing, that's nice but I don't line them up that way.. Just glad I could buy new panties, three sizes smaller.

Well, to be honest, I wear my bra and panties almost always as a matched set (thank you VS) and always to coordinate with what I am wearing over them! :)

I wear the color of my outer clothes, I'm wearing a the time. really helps is you split your pants@

I think most women like myself have different colors, and the color they wear varies from day to day. I bought them in assorted colors in a package: pink, salmon, heather blue, and navy blue hiphuggers. I guess I live all over the US, according to the colors I wear. What a strange campaign Hanes is doing!

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days.
