You left out:
__ Underwear? That just makes more laundry, and I'm more comfortable without.

:-)

(This is not my answer, just an answer that should have been there.)

On the last question- I hate white underwear, but I like buying the multi-packs of "high-cut briefs" or sporty underwear, and to get the fun colors and stripes I like, I usually have to put up with one pair of white ones as well. I wish they didn't always put white ones in those multi-packs!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has underwear reserved for emergencies.

I actually really like Victoria's Secret briefs, I think 'high leg cut.' They're pretty well made (e.g. don't deteriorate), and are comfy yet look (I think) good. I usually get the charcoal or heather grey, some black, occasionally the red ones, just for variety. ;)

Hrmm, I was referred here by another journal, and didn't really notice until the last question or two that perhaps men's underwear wasn't the subject. Oops. :)

Dark colors for my feminine side! Seriously, you've met me. I am extremely pale. Dark colors are more flattering and make a much more striking contrast. Pale colors just kind of make me look like I'm trying to have yuppie camoflage or something. (I do have pale colors/white, for the rare times when I'm wearing light-colored skirts or trousers. But only a few.)

I like to coordinate more than match exactly.

I have had a few patterns of skivvies one might accurately label "psychedelic." These amuse me.

I have one particular supercomfortable very cute kind of underwear I like, and I can find it very easily because I know exactly which stores do and do not carry it. I should buy some more this week when I'm out, actually. The wee dogbeast chewed through a pair last week when she was nervous about markgritter leaving. They're not string bikinis, they're double-string: more comfortable, still cute.

Bra and panties MUST match, too, except for certain occasions where I agree with rmeidaking.
