You Can Now Buy Underoos in Adult Sizes and We Want Them All

If you’re old enough to remember Underoos, we’ve got some good news for you. These popular underwear sets featuring characters like Batman and Superman are now available in adult sizes, so you can relive all of your childhood underwear dreams.

Even if you didn’t grow up with Underoos, you can still appreciate these fun costume-like underwear sets. They were designed in the late 1970s by a marketing and licensing expert named Larry Weiss, who was convinced there was a market for exciting underwear that helped boost kids’ confidence.

Who wouldn’t feel more confident with a pair of Spider-Man underpants on, right?

Weiss struggled to get his idea off the ground but eventually found success with Fruit of the Loom.
