Underwear is picked due to suitability to what I'm wearing. If I'm wearing unlined linen pants, I'm wearing skin toned granny panties. I find linen revealing, although not see through, so bikini underwear seems visible.

Not comfortable in thongs...not wearing them. Not comfortable going commando.

I get the idea behind feeling pretty about my underthings, but pretty underthings when you're big busted don't really exist. But I've known women who do the matching bra and panty thing, it's a gift they give themselves that's like a secret weapon.

So toss the ugly ones. There are cute high waisted panties for the times you need them.

If you need emergency medical care, I would think your underwear would be the least of your concerns.

I have some "sturdier" pairs I save for that certain time of the month (I don't use tampons unless there is swimming involved)... they aren't that comfortable but hold pads well.
so yea I don't usually wear those...

I've held onto underwear waaaaay longer than I should have. Holey and worn out elastic. It's when they are falling down inside my pants due to non-existent elastic that I finally throw them out....

I did just buy a new pack of Hanes hi cuts. Now I cannot believe I waited this long to buy them! Bra and undies do not match - in fact, I usually wear sports bras, only donning "regular" bras to wear dressier tops.

You should definitely toss out underwear that you're not happy with anymore...

My style is pretty casual most of time (mainly fitted tees and snug jeans), so I love to indulge in sexy & fun undies whenever I get the chance. I do have have some practical ones (no grannies-ugh!) for that time of the month though, when I'm feeling blah and out-of-sorts and wanting to give some people the bird. Heck, even the practical ones can be fun if you get the right cuts.

Life's too short for depressing underwear...

I'm a granny 12 times over and I wouldn't be caught dead in granny panties.

OP, what the heck are you saving them for? Throw them out if they're old and worn out.

My undies never match my bra anymore either. When I was younger, yes, but now I don't really give a hoot. I feel lucky just finding something that will hold these puppies up without them hitting my kneecaps.

My mom used to say "clean underwear" .Certainly the same idea though. As a man I grab my underwear out of the drawer when I get out of the shower and give it no farther thought.

Just curious, do you love wearing all of your underwear?
"Love wearing" and "underwear" never come up in the same sentence in my mind. I don't think about my underwear. It's utilitarian; I don't care. Why would you wear underwear with holes in it? Can't you afford to replace your worn-out undies? My exes didn't care what underwear I wore, because by the time they saw it, it was coming off, right? That's all they care about.

I can't relate to being "excited" about underwear.

Back on topic...

Absolutely throw away worn out underwear. When the ugly ones wear out throw them out, too. Stop buying ugly panties. There are plenty of nice panties to choose from.

Why not buy Jockey or Hanes cotton multipack varieties? They're attractive enough if you get them in certain styles, e.g., bikini, French cut, high-cut. That's what I wear most of the time and I like them. They're cute enough, comfortable, look fine under clothing, come in a wide variety of colors, don't wear out quickly, easy to care for, and inexpensive.

The Jockey French cut have become my favorite; I think I have 9 of them now. I have a few sexy panties but they haven't seen any action in years. I just refuse to wear anything around the house that is so horrid I would be embarrassed if I had unexpected company or had to be rushed to the hospital. Nothing makes you feel blech more than wearing ugly, ill-fitting clothing or undergarments.

Life's too short to wear ugly panties or ugly anything for that matter. I have never owned a pair of granny panties (I'm 62) in my life other than maternity ones when I was pregnant. Right now Victoria's secret is having their semi-annual sale; you can probably pick up 5 panties for $25. Stock up when they are on sale. I used to wear matching bra & panties but since nobody sees them anymore I settle for being in the same color family.

Normally I wear G-strings and thongs. When Aunt Flo comes, so do the granny panties. I've ruined too many pairs of my pretty lacy ones when that time of the month rolls around, so that's one of the rare times when ugly is in/on
