What Are the Benefits of Wearing Underwear Anyway?
Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who have a real aversion to wearing underwear. They just can’t stand the way they feel under their clothes. They can’t stand riding underwear, and some women hate wearing a bra. They may tell you that it’s completely unnecessary to wear underwear and they may be right. However, there are reasons why most people wear underwear.
One of the reasons is that we just grew up wearing underwear. The idea of girls running around without underwear was shocking. Many women prefer not to wear underwear under blue jeans and other appropriate pants due to the lines that can sometimes be seen under the fabric. It’s not attractive to look at most of the time, but there are ways around that. Either you buy underwear with legs that don’t show much or many women wear leak-proof panties.
The same can be said about men who wear blue jeans without underwear. Some doctors believe that the dye can be absorbed into the skin of the testicles and can cause potential problems. Some guys like boxers and some just wear underwear. Both styles are probably popular these days. In the old days, most men would wear undershirts, but many never wear them. Of course, many businessmen still wear them under dress shirts and men who work outdoors often do so.
Ladies used to wear corsets and camisoles before the invention of the scary bra. The corset was strictly meant to enhance the figure, but the camisole was an upper-body covering under dresses and waist-knitted shirts. After the invention of the bra, the camisole was often left by the wayside unless the lady was wearing a blouse or a thin dress that required extra coverage.
Underwear definitely serves special purposes and most people own at least a few pieces. It is not uncommon today to see girls wearing bras or boys wearing boxer tops. It’s a strange fashion statement, but each generation has its own.
