National Underwear Day August 5

National Underwear Day – August 5


If you’re like many Americans, your mother warned you to always wear clean underwear in case you were “in an accident!” Although there are probably better reasons to wear fresh underwear, this is the one that most often comes to mind.

A national underwear manufacturer has taken the idea of fresh underwear one giant step further. They’re inviting everyone to participate in setting a new Guinness World Record by wearing their underwear to Times Square on “National Underwear Day,” August 5.

If a trip to New York City isn’t in your travel budget, you can still celebrate by watching the 1983 romance comedy “Risky Business” starring Tom Cruise and Rebecca De Mornay.



Embrace your body image. Use #NationalUnderwearDay to post on social media and encourage others to join in.


Freshpair founded National Underwear Day on August 5th, 2003. This year they are reaching out to “… cancer survivors struggling to regain their lives, men and women suffering with poor body image, and young and old embracing their sexuality.”
