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!

well my color is black so they dont show all my skidders. what does that say about me?
