Do you match the color of your clothes and underwear?

I have the habit of matching the color of my underwear and clothes. I always think that underwear is the extension of clothes, like if my shirt slipped off my shoulder, the strap of the bra will be the same color as the shirt so it will not be so obvious, the same as with the undies and pants. Do you also do it?

I am not really into a habit of matching my underwear with my clothes.for underwear,I prefer comfort over style.by style,when I am wearing tight pants,I prefer seamless panties over thongs.I am not comfortable with thongs.for bras,I prefer those with underwire.they provide support.

for me it's kind of automatic, even if i just stay at home, my hand would pick underwear that matches the color of my clothes hehehe...

hi elvieb, no,i don't always do that! when i'm outdoors of course i prefer to match my bra with tops,but i don't have lots of colors with my bra.i just wear bra which is more light if i used light tops and dark ones on dark tops.when on pants,i usually wear pants that is sure to cover my panties no matter how i move.so i can choose whatever color i would like to wear on panties.i don't like seeing women who wore white shirt then black bra. what a mess i can say! under garments should always be kept "under" not to make them turn or light up than what you wear on top,right?

Not always. As you said, in rare cases, the inner dress colour is match with exterior it will help for some extent. In my case, the inner dress always I prefer which I like more and best suited. Regards, Thank-s

i think men are not as particular as women when it comes to matching colors.

Hi, elvieb02. Yes, I do love to match my clothes and underwear together. I think that it looks very neat. My husband always tells me how I am always matching down to my socks and head scarf. I love matching and coordinating my clothing.

When I was younger I used to wear let's say white shirt and whote underwear but later my most favourite colour for underwear became black and now most of it is composed of this colour.However I also do take in consideration if I wear something which in a way shows my underwear as you said about straps and slipped shirt.

not exactly, maybe the undies like bra and panty with same color nor design but with dress then i dont match it with them, besides no one know what color now design im wearing inside so why bother. if its a spaghetti strap then i wear strapless bra coz i dont want my bra strap to show off.

Oh yeah I also do it especially with the bra which you stated can slipped above the shirt I am wearing, so I prefer a matching bra with my clothes, and for the pants I don't quite do the matching, if ever I am wearing a jean so I don't have to watch for the same color.

I don't worry so much about my underwear unless I am wearing white pants, then I want my underwear to be white so it's not as obvious. I had a pear of white capri pants I liked to wear until I ruined them, and I was always wearing white or as close to white underwear as I could. As for the bra, yes I try to have it match as well because I don't want the strap to show and it be a different color, unless of course it somehow matches with the outfit. For instance, say I was wearing a brown colored shirt, a black strap accidentally showing wouldn't be all that bad, but a white shirt and black bra? woah that's a no no.
