On average, how long do you keep a pair of panties?

From the time you buy them until the time you throw them away?

  • I seriously have some that are over 5 years old, lol.
    When they get holes, they get thrown away!

  • A couple of years probably. Once they fit too loose or the elastic is starting to wear thin or they have holes...stuff like that is when I toss them. However, that usually takes a couple of years or so.

  • A few times a year I will go through my panties and throw the ones that look bad out like if they are faded or ripped or whatever do it depends on that factor

  • i think it depends on how often you wear them I have 30-40 pairs some of mine are uh quite slutty and only get put on after I finish a bottle of wine lol so I'm sure they will stick around for awhile.

  • if they get stained, holey, or otherwise gross i throw them out, i keep them for maybe 2 years at the most. i have some that are reserved for...special occasions, they don't get worn often so they last longer.

  • Oh, wow. I'm just gonna be the oddball here, and will admit that I have some underwear that I wore in the 8th grade. :-/ I only throw them away if they are seriously hole-y or stained from periods.

  • I'm so glad I wasn't the first one to have to say I have some panties (probably only 2 pair or so) that I have had since high school. I have 4 kids to support. Who can afford to be throwing away perfectly good underwear?!

    I think I'll post anon anyway...

  • I am always buying panties--I love cute panties, but if they get stained or holey, I throw them out right away. I won't wear them like that so why have them taking up drawer space? They might last 6 months or they might last 3 or 4 years.

  • The packaged everyday ones- around 1-2 years.


    The pretty $15+/pr ones I try and keep around a little longer!!


    'Sides, half the time with those- you aren't wearing them that long anyhow!!! LOL

  • Until they fall apart or are too stretched out to fit properly.
