What are Mormon garments?

Devout members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints wear sacred undergarments, called temple garments, as a physical symbol of their covenants with God. Members start wearing them after they have received their "endowment," a sacred temple ceremony that usually occurs when members go on proselytizing missions or get married. The garments are thin, white shorts and a t-shirt that come in a variety of fabrics. Both men and women wear them.
