New underwear can revitalize your whole wardrobe! Getting your hands on the pair of undies that are right for you isn’t an easy task. Once you’ve found a pair that works, it won’t be set in stone forever. Underwear like all our favorite outfits, will wear down and wear out. Don’t need to feel down about it, you can find another pair of undies that you’ll love just as much or maybe even more.
One of the biggest and most obvious problems with old underwear is that the elastic is worn out. Elastic is an amazing material, it can stretch and shrink but it can’t last forever. Once it loses its elasticity you’re left with a sad wrinkly waistband. It sags, it bags, and it can’t possibly help protect your assets, not to mention, keep up with your latest fashionable choices. If you find that your waistband is always slipping, get rid of that pair and move on. New underwear won’t leave you hanging!
You’ve changed sizes
Whether you’ve been hitting the gym lately and shedding pounds, or you’ve been snacking while making friends with your couch, your body is subject to change and can go up or down in size. There is great, comfortable underwear for people of every size. Although you can stretch out a tee and hope it still looks good or wear your form-fitting jeans in a baggier style, it’s different for underwear.
If you’ve gotten smaller, your underwear is going to start bagging and sagging. There’s no elastic in the world that can shrink to save your outfit if you’ve gone down a size. Inversely, if there’s more of you to love, your underwear can last a little longer. Stretching the elastic will allow it to fit comfortably for a while--but soon that elastic is going to wear out, and you’ll be back to square one. If you know you’re a different size now, get new underwear ASAP.
Stains are never okay. Throw those puppies right in the wash and let the detergent work its magic, absolutely. But if they still come out with stains, just toss them. Do you want to be halfway through undressing and then having to stop to explain that, yes, okay, there are some stains, but it was just a case of spilling a drink on yourself -- No. No one wants to hear that. Toss ‘em and burn ‘em.
The total number of pairs you own is equal to the days in a week. Although, you like to live dangerously. If you have seven pairs of underwear because you do one load of laundry per week, please stop and rethink your life choices. Get some new underwear to serve as backups in case you ruin a few before your laundry day.
