You are what you wear… And yes, your underwear defines you! I have mentioned in a previous post that I believe in great underwear, and not for obvious reasons like your husband or boyfriend or whoever, but completely and utterly for yourself!
No matter your mood, a good set of undies can cheer you up, increase your confidence and put the spring back in your step! I have noticed that it seems the older people get, the more “age appropriate” their underwear appears to be. I see absolutely no reason why a sixty year old women should wear granny panties. I have been having a bit of a browse and find in my personal opinion that some of the quirkier undies can give tremendous support contrary to popular belief.
Some really horrid underwear type include;
Control briefs – those are the ones than seem to end almost under your boobs and sucks the life out of you, and why are they always in the most horribly pale colors?
High cut briefs – the only place where they are “higher cut” is by the legs, other than that they also almost unite with your boobs 😦
Classic briefs – absolutely nothing classic about them. Fuller than the high cut briefs, not as full as control briefs. Comes in all shades of pale vomit colors.
So narrowing it down, I would say it would do you well to stay away from anything that has “briefs” in the name, unless you buy men’s briefs of course lol.
Some well balanced ones with good coverage and firm support – in my opinion – would undoubtedly be bikini, boyshorts,or hipster cut. Now these are available in all shade of bright colors, characterized, lacy in part or entirely, filled with frills or hearts and just about anything imaginable.
I have a sister that is nine years younger than myself, that has given me some very bright and fun pieces of underwear that I absolutely love. Who said Hello Kitty panties couldn’t be supportive? I love my boyshorts and they are an absolute must with a good pair of jeans.
There is such an expectation to be serious and dress appropriate as a grown up, so why not unwind and at least keep your underwear fun. I am going to make a point of buying some funky frilly or characterized undies for my close friends when their next birthday comes up….regardless of their age. Lol, yes mom, you are up next 🙂
And I vow to wear frilly, non frilly, characterized,lacy, pink, red, black, dotted, or whatever I feel like until I’m old and grey! Life is for living, and having fun…and if I’m forced to dress all grown up by society, then at least I’ll keep my undies youthful 😉
