Thanks to Jenn, we're actually seeing fairly realistic representations of 20-something underwear — and despite what many print ads would like you to think, girls are more likely to be wearing color-blocked mix-and-match sets from Urban Outfitters instead of 'hand-wash"-only torsolettes from Agent Provocateur. Jenn offers a breakdown of the cast's underwear preferences (and our intro-to-psych take on what it says):
Hannah (Lena Dunham): "Hannah is definitely into cotton underwear. She wears cotton underwear with a classic fit [like Hanes, Jockey, GapBody]....We consciously release her bra straps to make a soft bralette....She doesn’t wear matching sets." Personality in five words: Insecure but making it work.
Marnie (Allison Williams): “I would describe Marnie as sleek. She’s into Calvin Klein and DKNY underwear." Personality in five words: 20-going-on-30 sophisticate.
Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet): "She’s not style conscious but she is a New York girl and wears Victoria’s Secret. Her color palette is a little softer in pinks, robin’s-egg blue, and teals to keep her girly and feminine." Personality in five words: A n00b with self-respect.
Jessa (Jemima Kirke): For her, undergarments are her accessories. She wears Cosabella in great colors and unconstructed shapes." Personality in five words: Lost free spirit (with cash).
