Ever wonder why couples wear matching clothing? Now you may think they are just left of sanity, but there are some very real reasons why matching is a good thing. Not only does matching make couples feel closer to each other, but it also makes it easier to find your wayward loved one in the crowd. Either way, there is a certain amount of psychology to it.

For those that are not ready to go all-in for matching outfits or who are confident in their ability to identify their counterpart might want to dip a toe into the waters with couples underwear sets.

Matching Without Public Comment

You’ve probably seen couples in an array of ridiculous matching outfits. You might have even made fun of them. If you want to match your lover but don’t want the public comments, matching underwear sets is a great way to go. You get all of the benefits without the public ridicule unless, of course, you are in an establishment where your skivvies are out in public. In which case, a matching set can show your solidarity to others.

Feeling More Connected

Many couples report they feel more connected to their partner when their underwear matches. There is a feeling of closeness regardless of how far apart you are. It works as a reminder that you are in a relationship with someone who cares for you enough to wear matching undies. It is even better if you plan on seeing your significant other that day. You can spend time anticipating what they will look like in underwear that matches.

Matching Isn’t Always Direct

This is even more fun when you are waiting to see someone. Matching sets do not have to match directly. You can have complimentary underwear. Sets like hunting dog and prey can add some spice to your matching. You can also have fun with a mix and match set. Consider choosing mixed sets like puckered lips and mistletoe or Mr. and Mrs. Clause.

You can make a game of it. Pick out a single pair and have your mate pick a match. Then wait for the surprise as you unveil the look. On the flip side, you can choose themed underwear for each other and see how much fun you can have with a bit of creativity. This is a great way to find out what your partner considers sexy and fun. Making a game of it is a healthy way to let your partner know you prefer boxers or briefs.

Making It an Event

One idea to get you in the mood for matching is to make it an event. You can center it around shopping for the perfect matching set or something a bit more bedroom-related. This also opens a discussion about likes and dislikes in lingerie and other important topics. Your underwear is a reflection of your inner self. You can let your partner get to know you, and you can get to know them by choosing a matching set together.

Sharing Sets

If she is always stealing your boxers, matching sets can cut down on the drama at the closet. You can buy her a pair and then match while you are relaxing around the house. Matching doesn’t always have to mean different styles. You can wear matching boxers and t-shirts in the bedroom, and you don’t have to worry about whose is whose in the morning.

Getting Crazy With It

Since it is innerwear, the sky is the limit. You can get truly crazy with your selections for each other. You have the opportunity to express your partnership in private, or you can go public.

When you are contemplating matching sets, you can go all out or keep it simple and understated. Remember, you make the rules.
