The Beeb gives this one.
It states it's non-vulgar. 'Pile', tho', has connotations in AmE that edge
it into that direction, as with the initialism, P.O.S., where P stands for
pile or piece, the O for of, and S for the s-word.
'Pile' also evokes the alternate name for hemorrhoid, and in the context of
underwear, well, of 'skid-marks'.
Whatever the Beeb says, it sure looks vulgar to me.
