Tradition. Underwear (and sheets) used to be made of linen, which didn't hold dye well, so they were left natural colored. Took a while for colored cotton to gain popularity.

I wear colored undies, but make sure I've got flesh tone to wear under white pants.

Color doesn’t matter to me but it does make it easier to wash when you have one color or similar colors. I prefer black or leopard print but like I said color doesn’t matter it’s whatever I have clean lol.

I generally don't wear clothes that you can see my underwear through, no matter what color they are, so yes, I wear colored undies.

All different colors--mostly solids. But around one-third of them are beige. I have lots of beige because it blends in with my skin tone and doesn't show up underneath light-colored clothing.

I have a few colored panties (red, blue, green), one is gray, but the most are just plain black.

Don't wear bras.

Thus I generally choose a pack with black and grey as I feel underwear should be subdued and not clown-like in appearance.

I am pretty sure I have overthought my underwear purchases.

Overthought, nothing; so right you are!


Besides the clowny colors, I don't like black tighties either. Reminds me too much of the chicks that used to appear in my dad's girlie mags 50 years ago.


Like my aunt always said - "Make sure your underwear are in good repair, just in case you wind up getting taken to an Emergency room." I think the same goes for those goofy colors you described.

Yes, I like panties in pretty colors and they donít show through my clothing. I donít wear white anyway.
