It’s not an accident that when I rummage through my underwear drawer on laundry day, the only pair I can find is a lacy red thong or a silky black G-string. I wear my favorite intimates first, and am then left with the rest as a last resort. But in my case, the last resort is what other people would call “sexy lingerie.”
Yes, I’m a lover of granny panties.
Back in high school, I joined in with the rest of my friends were trying on tiny undies and thong shopping. This is the only reason I own “sexy underwear” to begin with — they’re left over from my experimental days. As I grew up, I came to two conclusions. One, granny panties are fucking comfortable, and two, the only person I should worry about impressing is myself. Keep reading »
Ladies, if you want to wear granny panties, boy shorts, period undies, sexy thongs, go for it. A woman’s panties are her business, and if we’re being honest, guys don’t notice them anyway. The most you’ll get is a “Hey those are cute, can I take them off now?” And that’s on a good night, when you’re wearing the ones without the holes. However; there are a few types of panties that will catch his attention, but not necessarily in a good way. I’m fairly certain that these eyeball panties aren’t going to get you the kind of reaction you want. Actually, he’ll probably run away screaming. These exist somewhere. And someone wears them — I’m hoping only at Burning Man. Click on through to see more undies you probably shouldn’t wear.
Watch out for the big girls! A survey of 2,500 adults revealed some surprising statistics about the kind of underwear we buy depending on our size. Size 8 women are more likely to wear granny panties (referred to as “sensible cotton pants” in the study), while size 14 ladies are more likely to go commando. And those size 16 gals? Well, they’re busy “working it” in sexier matching sets. When it comes to making underwear choices, it seems like big girls do it better or at least “sexier.” Keep reading »
I’m not a particularly girly-girl when it comes to underthings, and thongs scare the crap out of me. I prefer full coverage on my butt, thank you very much. But just because a girl wants her ass to be fully swathed in fabric, doesn’t mean she wants to forgo sexiness. That’s why I’m totally feeling this underwear set from Pins and Needles. Cute, but not too frilly, retro, but not to the point of looking costume-y, this floral bra and panty set feels totally fresh. [Bra, $24; Panty, $16, Urban Outfitters]
There were a lot of things I knew I’d have to think about when we decided to get married. I don’t just mean the lofty “What is marriage for?” questions. I mean the practical questions about the ceremony and party. What I’d be wearing underneath my dress for the big day wasn’t, however, one of the things on my mind.
That is until I watched an episode of “Say Yes to the Dress” in which a former beauty queen is lectured by her father about not wearing a thong to her dress fitting. “Thong” is not a word I would ever want to hear come out of my own father’s mouth, but I guess if that’s their relationship, who am I to judge? Prior to that, however, I wasn’t privy to the entire world that is bridal undergarments — a world wherein you’re not just expected to wear something stain-free and seamless, but sexy too. Indeed, “bridal underwear” is its own species in the genus of undergarments. Keep reading »
Whoa boy, these panties. Perhaps I just don’t live the kind of lifestyle that warrants fringed underwear. After all, underwear that accentuates the mons pubis isn’t for everybody. Or most people? On the upside, I suppose you don’t need to do much shaving and waxing when you wear these guys. [$32, Sugar Kitty Corsets]
