National Underwear Day
At first glance, National Underwear Day seems like a strange holiday, but it is based on the good idea of promoting a positive body image. Women and men can take advantage of this day to demonstrate love for their body and meet the understanding of like-minded people. National Underwear Day reminds: you should not be ashamed of your figure, even if it does not fit into modern beauty standards.
The holiday was established in 2003 by the company Freshpair, which sells underwear. At that time, the initiative was very unusual: it was quickly picked up and distributed. Today, this holiday has become even more relevant and in demand.
Familiar to us sets of lingerie became widespread in the 30s of the 20th century. By the same time, the emergence of men’s underpants. Both inventions were a real breakthrough, as they turned out to be much more comfortable than old-fashioned underpants and pantaloons. Thanks to them, we can move more freely, feel less discomfort and wear revealing clothes.
- When the first women’s underpants went on sale, they met with a lot of attacks: it was believed that they pinched the blood vessels and interfered with the blood circulation of the pelvis.
- The average US woman has 20 pairs of underpants.
- Most women wear the wrong bra size because they don’t know how to choose the right one.
How to celebrate
Strip down to your underwear and admire your body in the mirror. If you have trouble loving it, try to accept it, thank it for how well it functions. Take photos in lingerie or a swimsuit and post them on a social network. Give yourself a new set that you have long dreamed of, focusing not only on beauty, but also on convenience. If you have brave friends, you can throw a party that requires you to show up in your underwear.
