Chinese believes that the navel is the window to one's health. Hence the erdoudou - underwear. In fact this unisex underwear was worn for 100 over years or more before the Western bra reached Chinese soils.

Male toddlers even have a hole cut in front of their shorts to facilitate their peeing. How practical. See pic in the following page too.
