Underwear Dream Meaning: From 14 Different Sources


Hanging out underwear may be a sign that you are exposing your underlying beliefs, attitudes, and feelings to the world. Looking down and seeing yourself in underwear may be a response to an embarrassing situation in waking life in which you felt exposed.

Ariadne's Book of Dream | Ariadne Green

All clothing represents our self-expression on some level. Additionally, clothing can be thought of as protection against the elements. Both of these concepts are reflected in the symbolic meaning of clothing. Underwear takes these concepts to a level of privacy and intimacy because they are worn under your outer clothes, make direct contact with your body, and act primarily as covering for the sexual areas. In this way, underwear represents your desire to keep a lid on your sexuality. Also to be considered is the layered desire to protect yourself from being completely vulnerable; if you are in your underwear in your dream, you are certainly exposed, but are not as vulnerable as you might otherwise be. Your mother always warned you to wear clean underwear in case you got into an accident and had to be taken to the hospital.

This element of being prepared for exposure also relates to the shame associated with our most private experiences of being human.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous

In olden days, underwear was related to wealth but today it is interpreted according to how it appears in the dream.

If it is clean, you will receive an unexpected sum of money; if it is dirty, there is danger of public humiliation; and if it is black, it is a sign of deprivation and unsatisfied desires. To wash it shows insecurity and excess attention paid to the opinions of others; to dry it manifests a desire for novelty; and to put it away, the arrival of economic gains in the long term.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Something that’s not intended for public knowledge (personal matters, thoughts, feelings, motivations, etc.).

Vulnerability or emotional risk.

Discovering you’re wearing only your underwear in public can represent a feeling or fear of judgment, embarrassment, or other negative attention.
