You saw this one coming, right? When temperatures are in the 90s and 100s across the country, pants seem awfully silly.

Underwear parties are all the rage in NYC (IYKYK), so why not throw your own?

Out with the old to make room for the new.

We all have those pairs of underwear that have lived their lives and need to retire. Use National Underwear Day as your motivator to get rid of any tattered and old undergarments that are clogging up your intimates drawer.

What we wear—even undergarments—has a big effect on confidence. And nobody has ever felt unstoppably sexy in a pair of five-year-old, faded undies. It’s time to let go. 

Treat yourself to fresh new undies:

If you've never tried it, now is the time! This is a fun way to explore nudity with extremely low stakes.

The only danger is hot items cooking on the stove, so make sure to accessorize your cooking undies with an apron. Otherwise, enjoy the freedom of cooking and eating in your underwear!

Still hungry? For dessert, dig into underwear you can eat.
