UPDATE: What about other countries:

India – The flag should never be used as a cloth to cover tables, lecterns, podiums or buildings, or be draped from railings. There is no mention of use in a fashion attire.

In most of the countries there is no restriction to use flags in under wear. I stumbled upon a site where flag underwear of most of the countries are available to purchase. I was surprised to find one with a Nepali flag too.
