Who knew your underwear could be so revealing -- about your personality, that is!, and Arizona State University have it all figured out. Remember, your underwear doesn’t dictate who you are, but instead expresses your personality.

For Women:

High-cut briefs

Ladies who wear “granny panties” tend to be perfectionists, except when it comes to style. They care most about comfort and function.

Boy shorts or thongs

Women who don these are confident go-getters who enjoy a challenge. (The challenge is not to let people see you picking your butt) They like to show off their curves, are outgoing and open to new things.

Matchy matchy

Some women must have a matching bra and panty set. These confident women are quite fashion-conscious and enjoy pampering themselves. Some might even call them spoiled or high-maintenance.


For Men:



Wearing boxers is all about comfort, but men who prefer boxers are generally laidback, not too flashy and light-hearted. Boxers are the No. 1 choice in underwear for men.


Nicknamed tightie-whities even if they are red, blue or some other colour, briefs are worn by men who are inhibited and like the restricted feel of this kind of underwear.


Can you say the best of both worlds? Men who opt for boxer-briefs are very good at committing in relationships. Hey, they already know how to compromise since they’ve done it with their underwear!


Men who wear thongs are tremendously outgoing and even exhibitionists at times.

Going commando

Either someone forgot to do the laundry or he is very down-to-earth and embraces a natural way of life.
