Word Adoption 2017: Inexpressibles

Inexpressibles is another word for underpants. You may be more familiar with the term unmentionables. This is the same idea, but somehow even more likely to make you require a fainting couch. This word makes me fan myself and consider wearing corsets.

I encourage you to support Wordnik, particularly through word adoption. In 2016, I adopted boustrophedonic. In 2015, I adopted quiddity.
