Best Face Mask
Athleta Non-Medical Face Masks

Last year taught us that wearing a cloth mask can effectively reduce the risk of virus transmissions. It also taught us that not all face masks are created equal. This one from Athleta, however, is worthy enough for all-day wear. It has triple-layer protection and is highly breathable, even in hot and humid conditions. The adjustable nose piece and earloops help form a custom fit that’s right for you, making it a go-to mask you’ll want to bring everywhere. Read the full review.

Best Boxer Brief for Men
Adidas Sport Performance Boxer Briefs

A great pair of boxer briefs should be stretchy enough to maneuver in, supportive of the package, and soft to the touch. The Adidas Men's Sport Performance Boxer Briefs are all of that and more. These boxer briefs combine the traits of performance apparel, like moisture-wicking and polyester-enforced durability, with the breathability and comfort you’d expect from a pair made with super-soft modal.

Best Underwear for Women
Aerie Brand panties

After testing 54 pairs of women’s undergarments, it became evident that American Eagle’s sister brand Aerie reigns as the champion of women’s underwear undies across all style categories from panties to briefs to thongs. The seamless boybrief impresses with its full coverage support and buttery soft modal, nylon, and elastane blend. Its cotton boybrief makes that pair out of super-soft cotton—not the scratchy stuff of other brands—that stays in place with no bunch or rolling. The brand has so many options for fabrics, styles, and materials, you’ll find one that suits your preferences. No matter what style of underwear you lean toward, Aerie won’t do you wrong.

Best T-Shirt Bra
Natori Pure Luxe Underwire T-Shirt Bra

This bra feels like a luxury, with soft cups that are lightly lined with foam and covered in silky-smooth nylon and an upscale look that features decorative lace straps and gold accents. Despite our tester not being fond of underwire bras, the Natori Pure Luxe Underwire T-Shirt Bra was one that felt comfy and enjoyable to wear. The band lays flat against the body and is lined with a felt fabric that doesn’t stick to the skin, and the flexible wires don’t poke or dig in. Read the full review.

Best Strapless Bra
Victoriaʼs Secret Uplift Strapless Bra

The Victoria's Secret Uplift Strapless Bra helps the girls stay in place with all-day support, no adjustments needed. Comfy, seamless, and lightweight, its strapless design features a rubber edging around the band that holds it in place, yet is gentle against the skin and prevents it from sliding down the body. And even though it's a strapless bra, our tester found that it provided the slight effect of a push-up, giving it a subtly sexy look. Read the review.

Best Slippers for Men
L.L. Bean Venetian Wicked Good Slippers

If you’re seeking a plush, supportive indoor shoe in men's sizes that keeps your feet warm without sweat, you’ll want to reach for the L.L. Bean Venetian Wicked Good Slippers. The slipper’s uppers are made with a malleable sheepskin that contours to your foot and loosens up over time, while looking better with age as they become more wore-in. The inner shearling feels super soft without ever getting swampy or smelly, thanks to wool's antimicrobial properties. Read the review.

Best Slippers for Women
Ugg Scuffette II

Ugg proves that there's merit to the brand's popularity with its Scuffette II, available in women's sizes. It impressed our tester with a fluffy wool lining and the ability to warm the feet without creating sweat. These mules are the definition of cozy, with a supportive but thin rubber outsole, plush insole, and easy-to-slide-into backless style. As our tester wrote, they're "basically a giant hug for your feet." Read the review.

Best Winter Boots for Men
Sorel Caribou Boot for Men

If you're searching for a tough boot to sport throughout winter, the Sorel Caribou Men's Boot can do no wrong. This pair is built to survive the harshest of winters, rated for use in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit. The boots are equipped with a waterproof leather upper and throat, rubber soles, and a removable insulated liner, so they can be worn in warmer conditions, too. Despite being so durable, our testers discovered the boots require no breaking in and have a spacious toe box that leaves wiggle room for thick socks and added comfort. Read the review.

Best Winter Boots for Women
Sorel Caribou Boot for Women

Yes, the best boot for men is also available in women's sizes, and it’s just as superb. The leather upper is thick enough to keep your feet bone-dry, while the vulcanized rubber shell covering the bottom half of the boot offers excellent traction on snow, water, and slush. The removable liners can be pulled out, air-dried, and even replaced if they get too worn out. The insulation on these are high-quality and protective during even the coldest winters.
