How often should you replace your under garments

I think you should change out your undies once a year. They have a tendacy of looking horrible.. especially if they are your period undies.They are washed to death and sometimes do not withstand good life. Well, unless they are good cotton.How often do you replace yours? I'm only curious... we are ladies right?

  • When they start looking dingy. If I see a cute pair, I might buy them, but usually I go commando =p

  • I haven't bought new undies in years... I should, but I just never get around to it... I don't have any with "period stains" or anything like that, I've never understood how people let their stuff get messy like that... I really only wear Haines Cotton Bikinis... So it's not like replacing them would be hard to do, I just never seem to get around to it. Plus, I keep waiting for my weight to stabilize before I go by more clothes... But between pregnancy and other things my weight has been all over the place.

  • I buy new undies all the time. That's always what I look for lol. I don't know why but socks and undies are my favorite thing to shop for. Whenever I have a spare 25 I get the 5 for 25 deal at victoria secret...I have some that i've had for years but nothing older then the end of 2007

  • When I do laundry I pull out any undies that look worn, stained or have a hole. I have a ton of undies. I could probably go 2 months without wearing the same pair if I put my mind to it. Some I have had for a long time, some are new. I throw new ones into the mix all the time. When I am doing a Salvation Army run, I will go through and donate any that are not that comfy.

  • I only replace them when they start having holes. I have certain under wear that I only wear "during that time of the month" and I replace those more often.

  • I'm not sure. I recently bought some cute undies from Aries with my daughters. I love them so much I will have to go back for some more.
    I wish I was as perfect as other posters. But unfortunately my period is unpredictably heavy and so I have special underwear I use during that time because I just know they are getting messed up.
