Vote of Undie Awards
Apr '11
Women and men of all shapes and sizes can weigh in on their favorite underwear, lingerie or shapewear by voting in this year's Undie Awards. Beginning April 13 through April 30, underwear aficionados and average consumers alike can anonymously cast ballots for their best-loved underwear by type, brand and style by visiting.

The Undies website asks voters to “let their bodies do the voting” by selecting age range and height and then characterizing their body type, based on bra and panty sizes as well as bust, tummy and bottom type (for the women), or chest, waist and leg type as well as waist size (for the men). The site also features drop-down menus which enable voters to quickly select a preferred underwear brand and style. Voters also have the option of writing-in an underwear brand, if it's not listed.

Now in their fifth year, The Undies are an annual awards program designed to provide consumers with a forum for sharing what their favorite undergarments are. The results show a fascinating array of underwear preferences, based on the wearers' ages and body characteristics. The Undies cover: bras, panties, thongs, G-strings and shapewear as well as boxers, briefs, t-shirts and men's underwear.

“Over the past 5 years, I have been fascinated by each year's Undie results. Like the Oscars, there are some predictable winners, but also some terrific surprises,” said Tomima Edmark, lingerie & undergarment expert.

“Ultimately, the Undies are a great place for us to track and analyze trends, particularly among women. The first year we launched the awards, the thong silhouette was the runaway choice for most of the ladies. Now, the trend has shifted and more boyshorts are winning votes. It's also fun to see a return to women wearing comfortable 'granny panties.' In the bra category, there has been an increase in sports bra voting in recent years, which suggests that more women are purchasing sports bras. We see this reflected in the variety of sports bras that are now on the market.”

The full list of Undies categories women can vote on include:

Favorite Bra, Favorite Sports Bra, Favorite Strapless Bra, Favorite T-Shirt Bra, Favorite Minimizer Bra, Favorite Push-Up Bra, Favorite Padded Bra, Favorite Shapewear, Favorite Panty, Favorite Brief, Favorite Bikini, Favorite Thong, Favorite Boyshort, Favorite G-String

The full list of Undies categories men can vote on include:
