... with Marcus in black lingere attests to.
Looked like regular blue underwear to me. A bra and panties.
Women's underwear in general is referred to as lingerie.

Lingere on the other hand (in case mos6507 didn't know) means "licking."

Freudian slip much?

Kirk says in TVH: "They're still using money, we'll need to get some."

Not "they're still using physical currency, we'll need to get some," and it doesn't make sense to interpret it in that way, either.
But Kirk's statement came just after the group witnessed a woman using coins (i.e. physical currency) to purchase a newspaper from a vending machine.

Lily asks Picard "How much did this thing cost?" Picard responds "The economics of the future are somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th century."
And Picard dialog there is the sole reference to there being no money in the future.

In the double episode Reunification, a woman solicited a gratuity from Riker, Riker doesn't respond with "Sorry dear, money doesn't exist in the 24th century." Instead he said that he doesn't carry money, indicating that Riker associates "money" with something you carry. Something physical.

In 'Tribbles, Uhura went to the K7 station to do some shopping, and at one point offered to purchace a tribble, asking how much one cost. Now wait, Uhura wasn't carrying a purse and her uniform possessed no pockets, where was her currency? She was going to be paying yes, but not with physical "money."
