• Same reason I wear a pair of glasses. A pair of eyeglasses is literally a pair of glasses. A pair of scissors is a pair of knives. A pair of pants is a pair of pantaloon leggings. (We don't call briefs, boxer shorts, or undershirts of any kind a pair of underwear so I don't know what you're talking about in that regard.)
  • They all have two of something. two blades for scissors, two legs/holes for legs in others. Mind you, we only refer to wearing one bra, so the theory doesn't really work there.
