    The defination of undies from online dictionary is :

    Underwear, especially for women or girls.

    a. Does it mean we never use it for men or boys?

    1. bra
    2. underpants for girls and women
    3. undertops for girls and women

    c. Should underwears always come in plural?

    d. There is a kind of undies for men which is not tight fit but loose like a short pant?

    e. What should I call the little opening in the front on men's underpant for toilet visit?

    b. Does underwear include:
    1. bra yes
    2. underpants for girls and women yes
    3. undertops for girls and women I don't think "undertops" is a word, but I understand what you're talking about. Yes, it's unedrwear.
    4. underpants for boys and men yes
    5. undertops for boys and men yes

    c. Should underwears always come in plural? No. "Underwear" is an uncountable singular noun.

    d. There is a kind of undies for men which is not tight fit but loose like a short pant? boxer shorts?

    e. What should I call the little opening in the front on men's underpant for toilet visit?
    It's an open fly.
    d. Does the font I use for this message too big for you all or easy to read? It's just fine for me, thank you for your concern.


    Thank you.

    Ju.
    I think your "undertops" are what I (and my sister) have always called "singlets". I'm sure other folk will have other terms for them.

    Re: undies

    In BE, Ju, undertops are called vests.

    Confusingly, in AE, vests are jackets - not underwear at all.
