It’s February, and you know what that means? I bought new underpants, and now we’re going to talk about them!! Woohoo, I know you’re SO excited to discuss my knickers.
So I got some of these:
Ok, not exactly these. Mine are cuter. Pink with lavender trim and vice versa. I was going to take a picture of them, but that seemed weird. I mean, I wasn’t wearing them or anything. In fact they hadn’t been worn yet at all. Still weird though, right? So you’ll just have to imagine the cute colors. It makes them look all retro. Less Granny.
But helloo….SO COMFORTABLE. And bonus they were on super sale. 60% off the lowest clearance price. I am so in love with my new skivvies, in fact, that I did a Google search for “retro lingerie” to see if I could find more.
And what is important about that, dear readers – hello…readers? Are you there? Can you hear me over the sound of your head banging into the wall? Seriously, I’m done talking about my own personal underpants now. I’ve moved on to lingerie in the more universal sense. Ok? Do you need a brain wipe? Ahem. Anyhoo…I found this really cool collection of retro looking lingerie. Like pinup girl material.
So fun! And now, I am a little fixated on just who it is who buys (and presumably wears) this kind of thing.
I mean, I don’t even have a matching set. My rule has always been underpants have to be cotton, but bras cannot be cotton because they itch. And black cotton jockeys with a grey bra doesn’t count. (Oh, sorry, that was about me again…my bad.)
So if one were to own some fancy lingerie like this, hypothetically speaking of course. When would one wear it? Underneath stuff? Or just on surprise birthday trips to Vegas for hotel nookie? (Hypothetically.) I’m thinking my garter belts would be gathering a lot of dust.
So if you are a totally liberated lingerie wearer please inspire me. And if you aren’t living with 2 small children who have not yet embraced the cat bell, give me a timeline on when I can hope to unleash my inner calendar girl.
(Can we get some smelling salts in here? I seem to have lost a few faithful Clover followers. Brian…? Jim…? Dad…? It’s over now. You can open your eyes.)
