Fun Fashion Fact

Did you know that fuller style panties are popular with millennials and Generation Y consumers. According to research company NPD Group “Sales of thongs decreased 7 percent over the last year, while sales of fuller styles — briefs, boy shorts and high-waist briefs — have grown a collective 17 percent.” Erica Russo, the fashion director for accessories, cosmetics and intimate apparel at Bloomingdale’s, adds “that indeed there has been a ‘shift in the business’. The trend is in line with the higher-waist and roomier pants styles that have dominated fashion this season. Perhaps motivated by the same kind of contrarianism that helped elevate Birkenstocks and fanny packs, young women are embracing ‘granny panties’ — and not just for laundry day.”
