I'm a grammar queen - as well as a ballroom diva, but I can't help you with your bra and panties!

Simple. "Panties" is a dimunitive form of "pants", which, as we know, have two legs and are a dimiunitive form of "pantaloons". In pantaloons the legs are long but in panties the legs are very short, in fact just about invisible. That's how one gets panties. How one gets into someone else's panties is the subject of many books and movies.

It could be worse: They could be called "britchettes".

Thank you for your clarification, but some of us have seen panties that were certainly not "diminutive". Since you seem like the person to ask, does "bra" come from a "bonnet" which has fallen onto one's chest while trying to bend over to make a movie about panties?
Thanking you in advance for your elucidation of undergarments.

Perhaps Manigault can enlighten us on how to get into one's bra???

(Well, not me specifically, I'm a girl!!!)

With a nom de plume such as "Twinkle toes" I surmised you are a girl. However, "dancing queen" might have kept em guessing.

Actually you previously posted me that you were a "ballroom diva", ergo lady.
I guess since you stated, "I can't help you with your bra and panties", it's time to state that I am a man. I have nothing against personal choice, but I would like to be clear that I do not wear my Trans-Vest Tight.

No No No!!! I wasn't saying you were wearing your trans vest tight! I just thought that since you were talking about how to get into one's panties, you might have some suggestions (for the guys ) on how to get into one's bra.
