U is for Underwear

Ten things about underwear.

Calling them "underpants" is funnier than saying "underwear."

Women own something they call "period panties." Men don't know this, and they don't need to.

The Victoria's Secret 7 pairs for $26 panty sale is one of my favorite ways to spend $26.

I can get 16 preschoolers to wear their underwear to bed backwards by telling them it will give us a snow day the next day. I only say this when it's a sure bet that we're going to get snow.

Contrary to popular belief, thongs are NOT uncomfortable, and those who think they are have never tried them.

It makes my heart happy to be in the bathroom with my preschool boys, most of whom think they are pretty big stuff, and see their Superhero underwear.

Boxers are sexy.

When putting on my underwear, I always put my left leg in first. Always.

Static cling being what it is, sometimes people find a pair of rogue underpants lurking inside their clothes. Sometimes they find this out when they are getting dressed, and sometimes, they don't find it out until the underpants fall out of their pants leg, or so I've heard.

Life is too short for ugly underwear.

  1. Yes!!!

    I agree with wearing that life is too short to wear cute panties, but I always say comfort comes first.

    My dad (of all people) gets free Victoria Secret panty coupons in the mail and gives them to me. I have a legit theory why he might get them, but either way it cracks me up every time. But because of this, I haven't had to pay for a single pair of underwear since I have been like 15.

    I got back and forth on thongs. I think it depends on the fabric, to be honest. Some are way better than others. A pair of favorite undies for me for a long time was a silky thong. But now I opt for the VS hipster panties.

    One big question I have though is, how the hell did we come up with a pair of panties, when the pair is only referencing one?!?

    2. I NEVER get free panty coupons. Love it that your dad does!

      I HAD THE SAME QUESTION. Maybe that should have been #11.

  2. Underwear, huh? Firstly thanks for the tip on 'period panties'. It reminds me of a story about one of my students a couple of years ago...and secondly, I'm not sure ugly underwear matters unless you want to impress some one. Although I must admit to preferring sexy underwear.

    1. It's been 21 days; I'm getting desperate.
      Wearing pretty panties is a girl thing. It's like a little secret only you know. Unless your pants ride too low, then everyone knows.

    2. IT IS A GIRL THING. But when your significant other finds out, then it is a perk for the both of you. If the rest of the world finds out, then well, for that day, they know you were sporting the pretty panties. :)

  3. No, I've worn a thing and it was awful and I won't do it again.

    funky underwear is fun, and plain underpants are functional.

    And I wish they did superhero pants for girls, because I WOULD SO HAVE THEM!

    Not tried boxers.

    1. Plain underpants have their place when you need functional.

      Boxers on MEN are sexy.

    1. Agreed.

      I don't think I would be comfortable in them. I like stretch.

      It takes a couple of days to get used to them. But well worth it.

  5. I'm with Zoe on the "panties" thing. (I also don't like to use the word "purse", preferring "pocketbook.") This is one of your best posts!! :)

    1. Thanks, Gail!

      What about "moist"? Does that word bother you, too?

  6. I so agree with the rogue underpants falling out of the pants leg. It happened to my son as he and my daughter-in-law walked in through the entrance of a posh restaurant where he took her for a birthday meal - she grabbed them quickly and stuffed them into her evening bag, hopefully before anyone else noticed!

    1. I recently stuffed a pair in my purse after finding them in the back of my pants, catching them before they traveled down my leg. But then I forgot that they were in my purse, only remembering when I was pulling out my billfold and nearly pulling them out as well. It took me 2 weeks to remember to take them out of there.

  7. I feel out of place here, with you talking about your panties and all. But I do like and prefer boxers, so go me! Also, I put mine on right foot first. Not sure if it's "all" the time, but pretty damn close.

    I never object to women getting their panties from Victoria's Secret :-) I can't attest to the comfortability of thongs or various women underwear. Though, I can say women are sexier with them on than going commando!

    I'm just... I'm just going to stop and be done for now...
