With today being National Underwear Day and all, we thought we'd use the so-called holiday to find out which brand really warrants a lifelong commitment. We scoured Refinery29's New York office, asking real women about what they look for in a comfy pair of underwear. From thongs vs. boyshorts to Hanky Panky vs. Aerie, see what your favorite R29 staffers have to say about undies and shop their end-all-be-all pairs in the slideshow ahead.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
