America has voted. The ballots have been counted and the results are in! Women and men have cast more than 20,000 votes for their favorite underwear by type, brand and style as part of the 2009 Undie Awards. Winners were announced via the awards' website, www.theundies.com.

Over a one-month period, voters of all shapes and sizes anonymously participated in the awards, which cover bras, panties and shapewear for women and boxers, briefs and t-shirts for men.

Now in their third year, the Undie Awards are designed to celebrate all things lingerie. In addition to encouraging voters to nominate their preferred pair for greatness, the awards also seek to educate consumers on how to best pick out underwear that is right for them.

To this end, voters in the awards were asked to “let (their) body type do the voting” by entering their age range and height and then characterizing their body type, based on – (for the women) – bra and panty sizes as well as bust, tummy and bottom type OR – (for the men) – chest, waist and leg type as well as waist size.

“Participating in the Undie Awards provides women and men with real peer-to-peer information they can use to select the right fit and style, in tops and bottoms,” said Tomima Edmark, lingerie & undergarment expert. “What's more, the awards introduce voters to brands they might be unfamiliar with, especially via the 'select' winner categories, which are determined by our staff as a way of highlighting smaller brands.”

This year's Overall Favorite Bra (Average Figure) is the Vanity Fair Body Sleeks Contour Stretch Bra 75-266. This bra is claiming highest honors for the second year in a row, due to its simple style, comfort and cleavage. One voter wrote, “hands down the most comfortable bra I've ever worn.” Sizes range from 32B to 42C.

The Overall Favorite Bra (Full Figure) is the Panache Superbra Tango II Underwire Balconnet Bra 3251. Women chose this stylish bra for its fit and comfort, not to mention its support. One voter wrote, "I love this bra. For my size it has THE BEST support!” Band sizes range from 30-44 and cup sizes from D-JJ.

The Overall Favorite Panty is the Olga Secret Hug Nylon Scoop Halfpant Panty 913, which features a “scoop” design with a center back seam that keeps the panties where they belong while providing natural definition. This brief wears well and is the perfect everyday panty for sizes 5-9.

The Overall Favorite Woven Boxer for men is the Calvin Klein Slim Fit Woven Boxer U1513. These boxers are not only elegant and slim fitting, but also address men's often-overlooked preference for underwear that doesn't drown them in excess fabric, yet doesn't cling like boxer briefs. One voter described them as “well-fitting, comfortable, and… dare I say, elegant boxers!”

The Overall Favorite Knit Boxer for men is the Calvin Klein Cotton Knit Boxer U3008. This solid, basic undergarment is mindful of thelines of a man's body but has enough additional fabric to keep from being constrictive. Designed for durability and comfort, they have a devoted following. The fabric is soft, smooth and airy 100% cotton.
