"Aye bruh, how often do you buy new drawers?"

Right after, pause, what's your answer? Once, twice a year? For your birthday? You put it on your Christmas list or you wait until Father's Day? Some studies say underwear should be replaced every 6-12 months, others say every 90 days. 

There is no definitive answer, but below are some tips to help you through.



Unlike food with a clearly printed expiration date (even though that might be a great idea *noted*), that favorite pair of undies you own with the stretched-out waistband and the small holes have a way of feeling “still good” for one more month—and then another, and another. 


HOLES — When you’re seeing holes in your underwear, it’s time to say goodbye. Holes can be frustrating because they may pop up six months after wearing a pair of underwear or within two weeks of purchase. Holes can happen from heavy wear, improper washing, or from low-quality fabric.

TEARS — Similar to holes, tears in your underwear won’t give you a solid answer for the question, “how often should you buy new underwear?” Tears in underwear can happen unpredictably, but if your current underwear has tears from your pants, the wash, or flimsy fabric, it’s definitely time for an underwear upgrade.

STAINS  — When your underwear is stained, it’s a no-brainer that you need new ones. That

STRETCHED-OUT — Stretched-out underwear may be the easiest of these out-of-date characteristics to get away with. Your old stretched-out underwear is like sleeping on a metal spring mattress. New, fitted underwear is like sleeping on a luxury memory foam mattress.




Once you’ve spoiled yourself by purchasing some new underwear, you should know how to take care of these good-quality garments. The best way to make your underwear last is to treat it well. 


Hand Wash

Hand washing your underwear can prevent wear and tear brought on by frequent wash cycles. You can wash a handful of your worn underwear in the sink by adding a drop of laundry detergent to cold water. Once complete, hang to air dry. 

Machine Wash on Delicate

If you don’t have time to hand wash your underwear every week, you can machine wash your underwear. Throw your underwear in a netted garment bag for protection, add detergent, and wash on the delicate cycle. Once complete, tumble dry on low.  

Don't Overdo It

Wash your underwear after every use and do not wear the same underwear you used throughout the day to bed. If possible, have a washed pair of underwear for each day of the week.
