Whether you get someone lingerie as a gift, or you’re trying to impress your significant other on your anniversary, lingerie is pretty much foolproof. It’ll do everything you expect it to, and hopefully, more. *wink* That’s because there are styles of lingerie and underwear that suit different personalities and needs. Without further ado, here are some hilarious and obscure facts that will probably rock your socks (and bra!) off.
Bras Are Bad
Mammalogists claim that wearing a push-up bra for more than 2 hours a day could result in the development of tumors, some of which may actually become cancerous. Excuse us while we take our boob prisons off!
It’s In The Number
Did you know that the average American woman owns about 21 sets of lingerie but will reserve 2 for special occasions? However, women will likely wear about five different bra sizes throughout their own lifetime.
Good Luck Charm
While wearing lingerie of any kind may increase your odds of getting lucky, women in Italy have a custom that involves wearing red lingerie on New Year’s Eve, while women in Argentina choose to wear pink undies. This will allegedly bring them luck in the new year. Maybe it’s time to give this one a shot?
Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona, claims that the average pair of undies contain a tenth of a gram of feces, as well as bladder leakage. Oh, and if you’re using bleach, you’re not killing bacteria. Just an FYI.
