In April, a Theundies.com launched to award and recognize America’s favorite bras and panties.
You can vote for your favorite undergarments of all styles, categories and sizes according to your body type.
The first step is selecting your bust type (small, average, plus size, etc.), followed by tummy type and body type (no tummy, average bottom, fuller, bubble, etc.). On the right side there’s a little drawing of what you clicked. Then, you enter your bra and panty size. (There’s also an option to plug in your height.)
This all makes things body and size-specific
Next, simply choose your favorite bra, and vote. Once a selection is made from the 60+ brands, you find the style that you like and a picture of the bra-adorned by a model-is shown on the right. If your favorite is not listed, you can write-in your choice.
Step three: choose your favorite sports bra, strapless, t-shirt bra, minimizer, push-up and padded bras.
Step four: favorite panties.
Later, you can vote on your favorite brief, bikini, thong, boyshort and g-string.
The next step consists of finding your overall favorite shape wear (you know, the giant underwear or bodysuit that keeps you tight and looking like you don’t have that extra 10lbs of tummy or thighs).
When you’re done voting, you can add your email address to the system, after which you’ll be updated on The Undies winners, as well as receive a 10% off coupon to HerRoom, an online lingerie and men’s underwear retailer.
HerRoom was founded and owned by Tomima Edmark, the inventor of the Topsy Tail, an extremely popular 90’s hair accessory.
"Too many women just don’t know what really works for them and end up making bad choices,” said Edmark in a press release. “But when they find underwear that really fits the way it should for their size, they love it and are very loyal to that brand or style. We wanted to give women the opportunity to share their favorites and provide a comprehensive resource for consumers to get advice from other women in their size."
There is so much information about bras and underwear on these two websites.
The data varies from sizes to fittings to how to put on panties, elements of a perfect bra, the complete lingerie accessory wardrobe and how to choose the proper cup size. =
An additional feature on TheUndies.com lets you search for best-sellers in catagories such as backless, bridal, convertable, demi, front-closure, lace, maternity, minimizer, padded, plunge, push-up, raserback, seamless, sport, strapless, underwire and wire-free.
There are also celebrity picks pulled from research and Hollywood gossip:
"Beyonce graces the cover of the October issue of Blender magazine in EMI’s Coranto Contour bra in Jet — which is featured several times in her multi-page photo spread inside, and again in the November issue"
"Anne Hathaway in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ wore the Spanz power panties to transform from a size six to a size four overnight."
