Underwear Dream Meaning

Some underwear hangs on a clothesline to dry.

Similar Dreams: Naked, Jeans, Intimacy

Underwear appearing in a dream is a symbol of many possible things.

If you are seeing it on its own, your subconscious is working to point you in the direction of something in your situation that is hidden or out of your sight.

You need to go through many layers of the situation at hand to get to the bottom of things.

Underwear dreams also highlight issues with being self-conscious, issues with self-confidence, or even repressed/confused sexuality.

Dreaming About Wearing Underwear

If it is you wearing underwear and only underwear in your dream there are a few possible interpretations.

One is a literal translation where intimacy issues are concerned, and the details in your dream will help you to come to that conclusion. This may even point you in the direction of a love interest that has been “hiding” from your plain sight or that you have overlooked.

Another translation is that you are feeling exposed in some area of your life. You may be feeling suddenly vulnerable, or you may have issues opening up to people.

The feelings around this type of dream interpretation will be very important. Sometimes peeling away those layers is more liberating than we feel.

In this case, underwear in a dream can also symbolize the freedom you feel when you open up, expose yourself, and face the world with confidence not caring how other people perceive you.
