This doesn’t happen with Prinitfy and print on demand, because you don’t need any inventory. Once the order is placed, like the document on a printer, it is printed, packaged and shipped from the printer. Nothing for you to touch or hold, or even invest in!
Men’s and Women’s underwear market
Underwear for him
According to Grand View Research, the men’s underwear market in the world in 2018 was valued at $29.41 billion. That is an absolutely monstrous number, and it means there’s room for nearly everyone to try to sell more custom underwear into.
Men are usually a bit more basic with underwear than women, but that doesn’t mean that you can find a creative way to sell a lot of underwear. Remember too that a lot of women will buy underwear for the men in their lives, and even most men are purchasing custom boxer briefs, or at least underwear with some kind of design on them, rather than just a solid color.
Underwear for her
If the men’s market is huge, check out the women’s market. The global lingerie market for women was valued at a similar $29.9 billion. In the US, the whole women’s underwear market is valued at $13.1 billion, according to coresight.com.
This is another huge sales opportunity, and of course, women are buying lingerie and underwear for themselves as well as for others. Take advantage of the custom women’s underwear market and propel your sales to new heights!
Women buy men’s underwear
Want to know who buys men’s underwear? It’s women. Women buy the bulk of the underwear for the men in their life. But why? Men are creatures of habit, and don’t always keep up with the shopping. This, for the aspiring custom underwear salesman, is powerful information.
According to Sainsbury, the British underwear manufacturer, women shop for the men in their life an average of five times a year, buying underwear an average of three pairs at a time.
It’s not just wives though – girlfriends and mothers are also buying for the men in their lives. What they’re buying is also very interesting.
Women aren’t buying traditional underwear for their men, they’re buying colorful patterns and unique looks. Women have decided to “banish” the white brief, and replace it with something they like, in what is fast becoming a deal breaker in some relationships.
Take advantage of this trend and get some colorful, custom printed underwear in your store fast!
Custom underwear sales season
Often given as jokes or novelty items on birthdays or other special occasions like a bachelorette party, there’s a huge sales opportunity for the clever marketer.
Custom underwear has a sales season just like all clothes and garments. According to jumpshot, sales of underwear online are mostly flat between February and September, then ramp up for the holiday selling season. And, sales of men’s underwear has grown every month for the past two years.
Women’s underwear sales show the same seasonality, with sales growing nearly every month for the past two years. Interestingly, sales over the holiday selling season of women’s underwear have remained nearly constant.
Jumpshot also makes the point that these sales are indicative of a high amount of consumer confidence, meaning people are replacing at a faster rate because times are good. Men are especially notorious for hanging on to older boxers. Armed with this sales information, you’re sure to push out some custom underwear over the holidays and throughout the year!
Custom Underwear Ideas
Valentine’s Day underwear
Valentine’s Day is intimate opportunity for some custom underwear sales. Hearts, personalized names or cheeky sayings or quotes – this is the time to use all of your knowledge of puns and pop culture to drive some sales with your most creative designs.
Custom underwear is the ultimate in novelty sales opportunities, either for men’s custom boxer briefs or women’s custom underwear – because of it’s – ahem – very personal nature. The only ones likely to see your customers wearing these items are their partners or themselves.
Custom Christmas underwear
Christmas is the biggest sales season for underwear, so it makes sense to push out some Christmas themed underwear. From trees to stockings and Santa, these should sell during a part of the year that people are giving gifts, cold and have the time to enjoy them together.
International Women’s Day started controversially in the United Sates, but it’s fast becoming a widely recognized day of Women’s unity. Women are celebrating womenhood and sistershood. What better way for your customers to show the women in your their lives appreciation then with some killer, female empowerment underwear!
Custom underwear and Printify
The best part about the Printify platform is that you get to choose which printer you’d like to use for your products. Pick whichever printer you like, based on location, price or rating. You can even experiment, and order a few samples from different printers to see which one you’d like best. Some providers may have more options for size and color, depending on the product.
Another strategy is to keep an eye on shipping and production times and change to a different printer if you feel they’re running extra fast. It’s up to you, and you get the flexibility with Printify to make it happen!
Ok, here’s where the creative journey begins, our famous Mockup Generator. Once you’ve chosen your provider, you’ll be taken to the Mockup Generator. From here, you get to see how your custom underwear will look with your design. Is it blurry? That might be the DPI or a measurement of the image quality of the graphic you’ve uploaded.
Take a look at the minimum DPI that’s required in the bottom right – this way your design doesn’t get too stretched out or warped. We recommend a DPI close to 300, but usually, anything over 200 looks good.
Now check out preview mode to get a better idea of what your custom underwear might look like on a person. You can also look at some of the variants at this point. If you’re happy, that’s all you need to do. You won’t have to carry inventory – your custom underwear will only be produced once you’ve got an order from your store.

We’ve got some great options for you to sell here at Printify. We integrate with famous partners like Etsy, eBay, Shopify, Wix and Woocommerce. Let’s go quickly through the advantages and disadvantages of selling your custom underwear on each platform.
These are great platforms for shop owners that want minimal fuss and also would like to get the traffic that comes with a big name platform like eBay or Etsy. That’s a huge advantage – getting customers to traffic your site is one of the biggest challenges to running an online business. However, you’ll pay higher fees for transactions with these sites – that’s the price that comes from using their brand to sell your products.
You could also consider platforms like Shopify or Wix. These platforms offer ready-made templates and designs and charge you a monthly fee to get it. This means your upfront investment is a bit higher with Shopify or Wix, but you’ll be able to leverage their great looking and eyeball ready designs to save time and effort to get your sales rolling in.
Whatever platform you choose, we’ll integrate your shop with our system, and you can expect the same high-quality results from Printify. If you are more technical and would prefer a different web host but still want to use Printify, then the Printify API is a great option.
