Microfiber Women's Underwear

I am looking to buy new underwear, but my favorite line has been cancelled. All the new ones that seem good are made of microfiber rather than cotton, and I have some concerns about that. Possibly gross discussion of lady parts ahead. [more inside]

Affordable sort of sexy underwear for allergy sufferer?

I don't know if it's my latex allergy or something else, but I've been better off down there since I switched to 100% cotton underwear on the advice of my doctor. Currently I'm wearing the Elance Bikini and French Cuts, but I have pretty wide hips and they look kind of granny-like on me. I'd like to find something allergy/sensitive skin-appropriate that's at least kind of sexy and that's under $15 a pair.

Seamless boxer shorts / briefs to avoid sciatica pressure point

I find seams on boxer shorts act as a pressure point for sciatic pain at the back of my thighs, when sitting. Can anyone recommend mens underwear that avoids the problem? Preferably, something available in the UK.

Are these running tights or underwear (or both)?

I received these compression pants and I would like to use them as running tights. To my mind, the difference between "running tights" and "base layer" is primarily just marketing, but similar models look like they are really just meant to be underwear. Assuming the ugly waistband is covered by my shirt or jacket, can the pants I received be worn as running tights (without shorts over the top), or will everyone think I'm running in my long johns?

Can Men's Underwear be "Fitted"?

Women can usually go to a good women's underwear store and be 'fitted' for underwear by someone with some training who understands support issues that apply, using two basic metrics plus some variables (strap size/position). Are there any similar services for men? Or even DIY instructions? A ratings system? Explain underwear engineering and design, please. [more inside]

Long leg undies to wear under yoga pants?

I cannot bear to go commando in yoga pants, but my normal bikini briefs cause pretty bad panty lines. I think what I want is something like Spanx, but with the following qualities: 1) absolutely no "control" whatsoever, 2) cotton crotch, 3) legs don't ride up and preferably have the little gripper strips like some skorts, and 4) come in XS. I don't want boy shorts--those are too short and tend to ride up on me. I want something more like men's long boxers, but in a super thin fabric. Any recommendations?

Cute Guys Underwear Please

As a guy I am disheartened by the apparent lack of supercute underwear for guys in normal stores. It's all boring plaids and solids. What are some good online stores for cute quality guys' underwear? I cannot overstate the cute factor here. Anonymous so my underwear-buying habits are not google-able. Thanks!
