It is New Year’s Eve. A time when people start saying “out with the old and in with the new!” Usually we think of bad habits but I’d like to remind you that your undergarments set the foundation for not only your clothing choices but, often, for your mood for the day. This is why, historically, women bought undergarments in the “foundations” department. Think about it. Have you ever heard someone say, “Don’t get your knickers in a bind?” Everyone knows how uncomfortable it is when your underwear gets all bunched up. All you can think about it getting to the nearest private location to make adjustments. So, in the spirit of today being the last day of the year, I’ve decided to create a new holiday, Throw Out Your Underwear Day, so you can set the proper foundation for the new year.

Now, I’m not talking about throwing away all of your underwear for Throw Out Your Underwear Day. Going commando has some inherent risks to it. Although it is doubtful that your own “good china” will be photographed and published around the world, you may have to see the people you’ve accidentally flashed again in the future (Click here for Anne Hathaway’s terrific response to Matt Lauer’s leering line of questioning about her own unfortunate incident).
The soul of Throw Out Your Underwear Day is about making sure that you only wear undergarments that enable you to feel confident and ready to face the world. Make sure you feel good in all of your undergarments–whether those undergarments are lacy and silky or pragmatic and cottony. It is up to you to determine what makes you feel confident and poised. Everything else is just wasted energy and space.
So, what do you say, Glam Pack? Are you ready to say goodbye to the old and ring in the new by participating in Throw Out Your Underwear Day?
