Weird question of the day (Iím curious about yíallís answers)

Yesterday I had to go out and replace all my underwear. Iíve totally shrunk out of mine so it was time. I couldnít decide how many pairs to buy. Finally I got 16 (two boxes). Iím thinking of going back and buying one more box because they are so stinking cute and comfortable.

How many pairs of underwear do you have? All the looking at them yesterday made me wonder how many pairs the average person owns.

I have about 2 weeks worth of pairs that I like. After that, it's wearing pairs that don't fit well or aren't comfortable for one reason or another.

I have a lot of underwear, but even with losing 36 lbs, it all still fits.

I like having a lot because I live alone and don’t do laundry often and I like to choose cute ones daily.

I keep about two weeks worth of comfy undies. After that, I have to wear the uglies. Since I live alone, I do laundry about every two weeks. It takes that long to create full loads.

I have around 45 pairs, probably.

I have different colors, materials, and styles for different outfits. Thatís why I have so many.

I completely threw out all my old underwear and bought new when I had my hysterectomy. I said Iíd never wear ugly underwear again. . Well, I donated it, not threw it away. Most looked like new. The womenís shelter takes donations. I take them underwear, socks, toiletries, and grocery bags.

I have about 20 pairs.

When I was helping my dd pack up her dorm room she had to leave to take a final and i got bored so I counted hers. 102! She didnít like using the laundry so she would buy new when she ran out.

I have about 3 weeks worth.

The kinda I used to wear changed their manufacturing and I had to buy a new type. So then I found some I liked and bought the buy 6, save $5 or something. Then they had their semi-annual sale and stocked up because they were changing the lace pattern they were using. Whatever. They were cheap and no one is looking at my underwear.

Same as Pepteach and Arsabl, I have enough for about two weeks, then I have to break out the uncomfortable or ugmo ones. Funnily enough, I usually do laundry within the two week time frame, so I rarely have to wear the B-list unders, so I don't know why I keep them around.

Underwear

Maybe 30.

When we were first married, DH asked if I was going to do laundry because he was running out of underwear. I looked at him and said ďIíve been living on my own for 10 years. I have enough underwear to last a month.Ē

And that is when he started doing the laundry.

I haven't counted exactly, but I'd say about a months' worth...a good 25-30 days. I don't know about everyone else, but I don't care to do laundry too often. I have enough underwear, towels, & DEFINITELY clothing to do laundry about once every few weeks.

Week and half maybe?
Old 07-13-2019, 12:16 PM

I think maybe have a week and half's worth?

I personally hate underwear shopping! I never remember what cut/style I like. I know there are some I tolerate, some I love, and some I can't stand. I just can't always remember which is which, and it's not like you can return underwear after they are open, can you? I guess I never tried, but that seems gross. Anyway, I can't tell you how many times I bought the wrong cut/style!

were you stalking me early this morning???

i could NOT sleep late last night so i continued to organize and purge--dumped my "can't close it all the way" underwear drawer on the bed and sorted.

i think i must have had 100 pair. i threw several brand new that i've never worn because i'm too big for them (but mostly the style doesn't cover the area i want covered anyway, regardless of my size) in the donate box. then i threw out about 50 pair--elastic stretched out, don't quite fit, "old" and i'm better than that.....

so i'm left with about 30 or so. (i like to grab up NEW underwear at the thrift store for $.99 or $.50--you can tell they all came out of the same package because the style and size are the same and the color/pattern is similar--sometimes the little tape is still stuck on there) so it's not like i paid $7 for every pair of underwear!

i can close the underwear drawer now--wheeeeeeee!

Iím honestly kind of shocked how many people have answered me. Itís inretesting, all the different answers. I literally laughed really loud when I read hifiís post.

Someone asked what I got. I ended up getting the Secret Treasures brand in hipsters and bikinis. I like cotton panties because itís so hot here and they just feel cooler to me, so I found the prettiest patterns I could.

I had to go count - I have about 26. I wear 2 a day (one all day and then take a bath and wear a clean pair to bed), so that would require 14 just in a week - and I only do laundry once a week. Sometimes I need lighter colored ones depending on what I'm wearing so it takes a variety.

Enough for 2- 3 weeks, probably. I still do laundry weekly. I'm a little obsessive about doing laundry though, I will freely admit!

I have about 20 pairs of underwear. I wear 2 pairs everyday because I shower in morning and put on clean panties then after work and workout
I shower again so put on another clean pair. I do laundry frequently so I rarely have fewer than 10 in my drawer. I can't imagine having 2 weeks of dirty underwear and socks in my laundry hamper.

As a guy, I have somewhere around 30. I have mostly boxer briefs, of different brands and some materials (athletic wear). I do have 4 pairs of colored briefs that I do wear on occasion, which isn't often. And I do have a pair of boxers from years ago that look brand new. I don't know why I have them as I never wear them.

I know some women that claim to have over 100 pairs. I have a male cousin that owns over 100 pairs. He has just about every single style of men's underwear made and by different brands.

I am amazed that so many people answered this thread. And how many pairs of undies many of you have!

Then I thought about my own. I did just purge a bunch, but kept many that I do not wear because I never liked them. I have about 2 weeks of the kind I like to wear but they are often spread between 2 houses. I have at least 2 weeks of ones I could wear in an emergency, but I don't like to. Emergency? What if my washer broke?

I didn't count, but I might when I get home.

Another thought - I did purge a bunch recently and I am wishing I hadn't. I purged the oldest. Might have had some fraying or stains, but honestly, if I had an emergency, I would rather wear those than the ones I kept. Waaaaah! Hope no emergency comes as I was ruthless.
