Happy National Underwear Day!

Hope it’s not laundry day!

No need to get your panties in a bunch, but in case you forgot to mark your calendars, today is the day we celebrate boyshorts, bikini cut, thong, silky, cotton, and polka-dot! It’s National Underwear Day.

Freshpair founder and creator of this glorious holiday, Michael Kleinmann, said,

We created National Underwear Day because we are passionate about underwear, and we wanted to create a day where everyone could celebrate underwear the way we do each day. After all, no one just reaches into their underwear drawer in the dark and grabs the first thing they see. Most people match their underwear to their mood or to their outfit.

I wonder if he knows some people don’t wear any at all!

However, if you’re lucky enough to be in the New York area at the moment, don’t be surprised if you spot hoards of male models walking around the streets in their skivvies, it’s all part of the day’s festivities. What a treat!

You’re skeptical. I can tell. You’re all like, “We’re celebrating a day dedicated to undergarments? WTF.”

Well according to a UK Study, underwear happens to be the most important factor in choosing a mate. You wouldn’t go out and buy a six-pack of Hanes with the little bows from Wal-Mart (please say you wouldn’t) just like you wouldn’t grab the first guy you see on the street and make him your boyfriend! You care about your boo just as much as you care about your boo-ty, right? It makes sense.

So, the next time you’re stressing over the fact that he’s always late, or eagle-eyeing his possible bald spot that might not be a bald spot you’re not sure yet, just pants the innocent sir and see how you feel. It gives new meaning to boxers or briefs, eh?

Freshpair also recently donated over four hundred pairs of pretty panties to homeless shelters, the first installment of what’s to be more than 10,000 pairs over the next year. After all, you might not have food, water, a roof above your head, or a president that cares, but a clean pair a day keeps your problems away, no?

Either way, I deem this cause worthy of a national holiday, so while I lobby that legislature, you make sure you slip into your favorite pair. Today’s not the day for commando.
