It seems to be that women’s underwear hasn’t actually been designed for women. If the powers-that-be had deigned to make cheap lace comfortable, then you might be able to convince me otherwise — but for a long time (much longer than my lifespan), women have had to adhere to someone else’s wish list for their bodies — even when shopping for their most basic garments. (Looking at you, Miracle Bra, and you, corsets). 

It’s odd that despite the marketing of men’s underwear as comfort first, ie always “the most comfortable pair you’ll ever wear,” the same can’t be said for women. Comfort, for us, is often an add-on of sorts — ‘It’s XYZ (waist-defining, love-handle-erasing, sexy) — and, also, comfortable!” For most of our underwear options, comfort is an afterthought.

Another indicator was the splash that bra company Thirdlove made when they debuted comfort-first bras that come in half-sizes — acknowledging the natural fact that women’s bodies probably have failed to evolve into an A, B, C sizing system on their own.
