Got a favorite type of underwear? Sure you do.

Show your support by voting in the fifth annual Undies Awards, sponsored by and

OK, enough with the commercial message. Here’s the deal.

The voting categories are tilted heavily toward the female side, likely because females tend to wear twice the amount of underwear as men. Female categories include — and dear sweet puppy, there are seven listings just for bras: padded, push-up, minimizer [what?], T-shirt, strapless, sports, plain, and peanut — plus shapewear, panty, brief, bikini, thong, boyshort, and g-string.

Guys, our choices include tighty-whitey and other. OK, not really, check the list and vote your conscience.

Voting runs through April 30, and, if I correctly read the release, ladies vote on ladies categories and men vote on menswear, which might explain why there’s no “strapless bra and g-string lying on the floor” category of favorite underwear under the men’s heading.

Anyway, check out last year’s winners to get a feel for the competition.
