While the traditional women's white panties has gotten its fair share of reinterpretations recently, it would be remiss to say that its the overwhelming favorite of both wearers and fans of lingerie. The website Rakuten Infoseek Woman asked both men and women to weigh in on their underwear preferences. Many stated that they aren't opposed to receiving lingerie as a gift (60%) although they said it's difficult to gift such an item, out of embarrassment of purchasing such an item or the chance the recipient would consider it sexual harassment.

Anime and manga has had its own trends when it comes to depicting women's underwear. Popular styles include the white with a pink bow combo, shimpan or striped (usually blue and white), strawberry prints, and black, lacy variations used to depict more "mature" women.

The poll asked 93 participants, both male and female between the ages of 20-50, what are their favorite color and styles of underwear and bras. Men and women's tastes varied, with men more interested in "sexy" underwear with more exposure while women seemed more interested in comfort.

After discussing what they liked, the participants also offered some advice about how to quickly break it off with a potential partner. One man offered, "If you want to break up with your boyfriend, wear dirty underwear on purpose."
