Fleshing out the details

Katy Perry likes nude underwear. (Credit: Rolling Stone)

New York Magazine's The Cut recently discussed a British study found that 72 percent of women choose nude or flesh-toned underwear instead of black, white, and fancy colors or prints when they go shopping, and a British department store reports that sales of nude underthings are up 38 percent for the year. British pub the Daily Mail reports that stars like Eva Mendes and Katy Perry are the inspiration behind the recent nude lingerie trend.

My question is: Why hasn't buying nude underwear always been popular?

With flesh tones, you can be 100 percent sure that everything you wear - white pants, light-colored dresses, sheer shirts - will not be marred by unseemly underwear peeking through. 

If you don't own at least several pairs of nude underwear and two nude bras, you should go and invest in some immediately.

Hanky Panky thong, available at Nordstrom: $18

(Also, if you don't own any Hanky Panky thongs, you must buy some post haste. I swear, you'll be converted for life.)

Victoria's Secret plunge multi-way bra: $50
Spanx Hide and Seek strapless full slip: $72

And FYI: The Daily Mail also interviewed a psychologist who said that "A nude or flesh-coloured bra denotes a personality that is natural, easy-going, down-to-earth and transparent."

I feel pretty good about that.
