National Underwear Day
National Underwear Day was celebrated annually on August 5th. Underwear is the layer of clothing worn closest to the body and under the outer clothing. It protects the clothing from sweat and provides the wearer protection from chafing and cold. Underwear also provides support and shape of the body. Underwear is designed for both modesty and to look alluring. Fabrics allow underwear to be intended for particular climates and sports. It is not all about lace and leather. Neoprene, cotton, spandex, velvet, polyester and so many materials are used in many different types and styles of undergarments.
“Wearing underwear on the outside of your clothes can turn a tedious trip to the store for a forgotten carton of milk into an amusement park romp.” – Patch Adams
History of National Underwear Day
To publicly shine a light on unmentionables Freshpair founded National Underwear Day on August 5, 2003. Underwear didn’t always use to call underwear, Middle ages men wore linen shorts called braies, but women didn’t wear knickers until the 19th century before that they wore a garment called a shift underneath their dresses. In Britain, the word pants were used to mean long drawers that covered the whole leg and the garments worn over the top of pants were called as trousers. The word pantie for ladies was created as a shortened version of the word pants. While underwear was originally meant to protect clothing from sweat stains, it is not always about just the bras and panties. Included in this celebration is the corsets mentioned above, as well as bustiers, boxers, sports bras, briefs and yes even some swimsuits, fit into National Underwear Day.
