Some traditions are hard to break. I remember my mum buying new pyjamas, clothes and shoes for me every Lunar New Year. It is always with much anticipation that I await the first day of the Lunar New Year to break them out. This is in accordance with the Chinese belief of 'in with the new, out with the old'. New things equate to fresh good luck for the new year. Of course, as I became financially stable, buying new clothes became a monthly (sometimes weekly, oops!) affair instead of yearly. Of course, undergarments are part of the buying list, especially for each new year. Nothing beats feeling confident from the inside out. Have you heard? Many believe in the importance of wearing new, red underwear during CNY. It is supposed to help with enhancing romance and ushering in prosperity.
Whether you subscribe to such Chinese beliefs, nothing beats wearing new undergarments and feeling great. In this article, we sieve out top-selling undergarment brands for the gentlemen, be it boxer shorts, briefs or even thongs and period panties for the ladies. For the uninitiated, period panties are primarily worn during the menstrual cycle in place of sanitary napkins or tampons and for those experiencing incontinence. It is not uncommon for ladies to complain about sanitary pads chafing the skin or general discomfort. Period panties (a new and welcome introduction) come in a variety of absorbency. Not having your monthly cycle? You can still wear them! Don the low-absorbent ones when the cycle is close, and wave goodbye to embarrassing and smelly discharge. Now you can have a blast during your CNY visits to friends and relatives without worries!
