This post is about underwear. That’s right, I’m talking about panties. We all wear them everyday, unless you’re one of those that likes to go without (which is a whole other post in itself). We all have our “sexy” panties that we spent a fortune on at Frederick’s or Victoria’s Secret, as well as a ton of regular ol’ cheap panties that we picked up by the pack somewhere like Walmart or Target.
After they’re worn and washed several times, you end up with a stretched out, faded mess that hardly represents the cuteness you originally purchased in the store. Some of us (*cough* me) are sadly still wearing the same stuff we bought 10+ years ago. And then of course there are those unmentionable garments known as “period panties” that we all hide away in the drawer, and well…..you know.
Anyhow, a few months ago, I went through some crazy fit and threw out most of my “ugly” underwear with the plan to purchase more over the next few months. And what happened? I didn’t buy a damn thing. Nope. I’m down to about 10 pair and those are fading fast, both literally and figuratively. I was doing laundry the other morning and realized just how few “good” pairs of underwear I have left.
So I’m putting my foot down and making this promise to myself: I will invest in nice panties every month. I know, you’re thinking, “investing in underwear, what?!” That’s right, I’m investing in undergarments. I’m promising myself that I’ll spend $10 a month on new panties. A nice pair this month, and some practical comfy ones next month, and so on. So maybe no one else will see them other than me or my husband (or my kids that won’t give me two minutes to go the bathroom by myself). But that doesn’t matter. Because it’s worth it to get dressed and look in the mirror and see your tush in some down right sexy panties.
Forget the Wheaties, Special K, and Cheerios. Sexy, comfortable panties are the BEST way to start the day.
Because every woman should be able to look at themselves in the mirror in the morning and think, “damn, my butt looks good!”
So ‘fess up, do you have a drawer full of ugly unmentionables? How often do you treat yourself to new underwear?
