Wear undergarments in ehram umrah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Abdullah ibn Umar (r.a.) reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "A person (male) in a state of ihram for pilgrimage is not allowed to wear a sewn shirt, a turban, a hooded robe, underpants, a cloth that has been dyed with sweet smelling fragrance (such as saffron), shoes or sewn slippers, unless one is unable to find regular unsown slippers, then one may wear his shoes provided one cuts them down to the ankles." Related by Bukhari and Muslim.
As for a woman pilgrim, she may wear all of the above. But she is forbidden to use perfumed clothes, a veil that covers the face, or gloves.
Abdullah Ibn Umar (r.a.) reported: "Allah's Messenger (saws) forbade women pilgrims in the state of ihram from wearing gloves, veils (that cover her face), and clothes dyed with saffron or warse (A sweet smelling plant that was used to dye clothes yellow). Besides these, they may wear anything else, any color, silk clothes, ornaments, trousers, or a shirt or shoes."

In light of the above quoted guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) the wearing of undergarments or any stitched clothing is prohibited for the males during their state of ihram for pilgrimage; but there is absolutely no such restriction on the believing females. She may wear her undergarments in her state of ihram if she so wishes, and she may abstain if she so wishes.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
