Last week I had an underwear crisis. It had been a few months since my last update, so I went to the store to buy more of the exact same underwear I’ve been wearing for about 10 years. Except that when I got to there, the style had been changed. And I panicked. Do I try the new cut? What if it doesn’t fit? I decided I would ask for underwear recs, but then I worried that would be weird. I didn’t know what to do.
Eventually, I took a chance and ordered the same cut from a different brand that looked similar to what I always wore. But not before biting the bullet and getting recommendations from real women with real bodies (i.e. my coworkers). Yes, they were completely weirded out, but shared no less and I have to say they gave some pretty convincing reviews of their go-to underwear. So if you, like me, are on the hunt for new underwear, click through the slideshow to see what real women who commute and sweat and work real jobs just like you swear by. Promise it won’t be as weird as it sounds.
