I know, right? I wear underwear because my clothes look better when I do, and I feel more comfortable in my clothes when I do. No other reason. I choose underwear that looks best with my clothes. If that's getting excited about underwear, then I'm all for it.

PS - what exactly are "granny panties", and how did they come to be so hated all of a sudden?

Are they just plain briefs? If so, I've been a granny since I got out of diapers.

Yes, they're the briefs style your mother bought you when you were a kid, but in adult sizes.

Well, when you think about it, using a bedpan in the ER if you had to go and they wouldn't let you get up would probably be a bit easier if you didn't have to hoist the underwear around.

All this talk about underwear reminds me of a dream I had one time about a pair I still have. The underwear in question is a pair of Haines cotton high leg (or whatever it's called,),and has small pink and yellow flowers with green leaves on it, with dark pink elastic-a few years old and washed many times so faded to pastel by now. No holes in it though.

Anyway, in the dream I was attending a work meeting with lots of people there, and the speaker made an announcement. She said they had found a pair of ladies underwear (I didn't catch where), and were trying to find the owner. She held up a pair of panties that looked exactly like I described above, only they were so huge that she had to spread her arms full length when she held up those panties. She and a couple of the other speakers commented that the panties were so YUGE that they couldn't imagine the size of the butt they belonged to, but there they were, and they sure looked like my undies. I wouldn't admit they were mine, though, especially not in front of so many people, so I just played dumb.

I still think of that dream and laugh all over again when I come across those undies in the drawer.

Mom always told me to wear decent underwear in case I was hit by a car and had to go to the ER.


Yep we always had time to notice what kind of under garments you were wearing as we cut them off of you in the emergency room.

Old undies make great rags. I go through three or four pair when I deep clean the antiques.

Yeah, that's why I still keep the worn out ones. Haha for the record I don't buy ugly panties. They were nice at one point but stretched out so they look like granny panties. I also stained some of them because of the monthly thing. It seems like only thongs look sexy but I hate thongs. I only have a few pairs I love that look great and aren't thongs but sadly they're wearing out

I had threw out many lovely underwear because they are uncomfortable wearing. Some of them worn a couple times or still new. Unfortunately underwear(panties) aren't allow to try, so if after buying and not wearing them they just had to go

Who's paying for your underwear? If mom, wear what she buys you. If you, buy and wear what you like.

That's a great idea!

I completely reject the idea that daily underwear should be sexy, like in a stupid Victoria's Secret ad or a movie. When I was younger I was dumb enough to fall for all that marketing and spent a lot of money on uncomfortable lacy underwear that no one ever saw. Stupid stupid stupid fashion victim. Now I just wear what's comfort able and clean, and I only throw it out if it wears out or gets uncomfortable. I refuse to be manipulated by money-hungry fashion brands that promote unrealistic and unhealthy expectations of female beauty and play to our deepest insecurities to get us to buy that useless crap.
