National Underwear Day: Celebrating Boxers, Briefs, Thongs & Granny Panties

National Underwear Day, lingerie, underwear, bras, thongs, boxers, briefs,

It's time to get personal. Aug. 5 celebrates those unmentionable garments we slip on first thing in the morning and the last thing we take off in the evening. It's National Underwear Day, an annual event launched in 2003 by underwear retailer, Freshpair.

Whether you prefer boxers, briefs, thongs or granny panties, Aug. 5 is all about intimate apparel. And speaking of comfy, if you’ve been thinking about going bare down there, you aren’t alone. According to a Vanity Fair and 60 Minutes poll, 25 percent of folks polled admitted to going commando. 7 percent of those went without underwear all of the time.

Today is the perfect excuse to go through your "drawers" and toss out those holey, stained and stretched out skivvies. It’s time to give those tighty whities the old heave-ho even if they are your favorite pair! Happy National Underwear Day! Today is also National Oyster Day.
