It has always been my personal philosophy that clothing should be optional.
Naturally this includes underwear.

I beg....politely.

Default Bra etymology.

Thanking you in advance for your elucidation of undergarments.
Bra is just from the name of the old froggy dude Brassiere, (I am of French extraction), like the crapper. The garment itself is not more than 150 years old. Before that, I guess folks flopped around. Or up and down.

You get into someone else's bra only by invitation!

Mom used to say wear your drawers and make sure they're clean in case you ever have an emergency. I stick to that advice. Example: A guy on a motorcycle slid out of control and the EMT had to pull his pants down to check his leg. No drawers. I felt so bad for the guy sitting there, half-conscious having everyone see his stuff.
And... who can forget "There's Something About Mary" when the guy gets his stuff caught in his zipper. Another reason why I always wear my drawers.

I like to have something between me and whatever I am wearing.

I dont do pantyhose, theyre too binding!! Thigh highs work great.
I have known guys in my life where boxers dont offer the support that briefs do. But Im, sure there are men out there that prefer boxers though.On the other hand, I wear boxers in the summertime, to sleep in, they are comfy and a person can move around in them.
Women should, though, always wear at least something underneath, no matter if they wear a skirt, jeans, sweats, formal dress, whatever.

That old rumor is true: My mom was a nurse and she also said that kids should always wear clean underwear. If a person is brought to the emergency room with dirty underwear the medical personnel go "tsk, tsk!" So, yes, it is true. Emergency room people do check your underwear and they think less of folks with dirty linen.

I'm also a firm believer that not only do we need nice undergarments, we also need to be properly groomed in the nether regions.
