Getting My Panties In a Bunch
There are a few in the line-up that I kind of like. But they are from Victoria's Secret and they are not cheap. But they are kind of cheaply made and I seem to be going through them like water. I keep making holes in my underwear in the strangest place. Not on a seam, but right in the front. It can't be the washer because then all of my clothes would be ripped. And I haven't gained weight, so it's not like I'm busting out of them. I just make these weird holes. The material gets very thin only right there and then rips. I had a thought recently that maybe it's from the zipper of my pants rubbing on it. But it's not like I run around rubbing myself on things or running marathons in my regular pants, so I don't get it.
I used to love these really cheap things made by Rene Rafe. You could get them at Filene's Basement for like 6.99 for 6 pair. They were always by the checkout at the one here. Bikini briefs. No thongs for me. Sometimes they were solid, sometimes prints, but I always loved them. Then our Filene's Basement closed and there isn't one close enough to bother. And I can't find them ANYWHERE. When I went to help my sister a-ster move in Maryland, we actually went out of our way to go to a Filene's Basement to get them! (I really am desperate) They had the brand but not the style. The only style they had were grannie panties and I sure can't handle those yet.
My other sister e-ster was once near a Filene's Basement so she stopped and got some. But though they were THE STYLE I wanted, they were strangely tight in the elastic. I wear them, but not with anything that I would want to have panty lines show through(when would I ever want panty lines to show through?).
So I've tried others. I've tried fancy names at Marshall's but those were ridiculous. I've tried looking at K-Mart but they only have high briefs and the like. I've looked at VS but they want like $5 per pair and that is highway robbery if there ever was such a thing. I won't wear thongs, I don't love anything but cotton and I just want something normal.
So there I was in Benny's last week (kind of like a 5 and 10 with the strangest assortment of cheap things) and lo and behold there were some underwear I thought I would love. They are boy shorts but I had a pair of those once and really liked them. So, then I was stymied on the size. I chose small rather than extra small which claimed it fit size 4-6. I'm a 2-4 but sometimes feel bigger, so I thought these would be nice. They are Hanes, 3 to a bag, very cheap. Victory at last. Until I tried to wear them.
So, I hope all of you advertisers who are sneaking into my blog will take pity on my sad state of naked crotch and send me samples to try out and report on. I am so particular that if I can approve something, you know it will be good for the masses.
