This Is What Your Underwear Reveals About Your Personality

Fashion has long been a big part of people’s lives throughout history.  It was back in 1926 when economist George Taylor showcased something called the Hemline Index. It revealed that when a country was about to enter into a recession, women were more likely to wear longer dresses whereas during times of prosperity the hemlines on dresses would be reduced. 

But what we wear under our clothes is just as integral to our personalities as our outerwear. Whether it be a pair of boy shorts, or a thong, or some ‘granny panties,’ here are things that your underwear reveals about your personality.

Here are ten of the most common types of underwear out there. Pick one that you wear on the most regular basis and see if it matches with your most dominant personality trait.

The T-string is a scandalous piece of underwear that is usually reserved for those who are extremely comfortable in their own skin. People who regularly wear this form of underwear are confident, independent and not shy to show off what they have. There are studies to support this conclusion. 


For example, in 2005 a study conducted by Joseph Benz at the University of Nebraska found that men were more likely to exaggerate their financial independence and willingness to commit while women were more likely to be deceptive in regards to their body image. This meant that men were more likely to dress in a way that accentuated their wealth or status while women would dress in a manner that showed off their physique. 

The G-string is similar to the T-string but the characteristics differ. Someone who regularly wears a G-string is usually a person who can balance work and pleasure with ease. These types of people are comfortable in their own skin but also willing to reveals parts of themselves both physically and mentally.


Thongs are generally reserved for those who are ambitious, motivated and driven to succeed. Discomfort and being out of your comfort zone isn’t something that really bothers them and their motivation to reach their goals cannot only define them as a person but also inspire others as well.
