I’m sorry y’all. This is a super boring one. It’s so boring. I know, I know, my goal in life is to bring you the pretty things, but hello, my name is Sweets, I am wearing boring knickers today, and they feel INCREDIBLE:
Okay, look, hear me out.
I have this awesome dress, see?
It fits my boobs, falls to my knees, hugs my waist, repels cat fur, and makes me feel super glamorous. I wear a scarf with it at the office and whip my cleavage out afterwards. It rules. The other thing it does is caress my tush without also caressing my belly. I love this, because it makes me look like I actually HAVE a tush, but all of a sudden my knickers are really in the spotlight. I’ve tried all the briefs I own. I’ve tried the really uncomfortable shapewear shorts that I hate wearing. I’ve tried thongs, but my feelings on thongs remain unchanged (newbies: thongs are the worst and I hate them). Tights help somewhat, but tights are slinky, and the dress is slinky, and tights make the dress’s lining ride up around my waist by the time I get to work. I don’t get THAT bent out of shape about visible panty lines, because I have other things I’d rather worry about, but in this case I really did want to find a comfortable solution.
Enter the giant cotton knickers above. The rise is high enough to sit right at my belly button and lie smoothly over my hips, the leg line is low enough that panty lines aren’t an issue, they’re black so they go with all my bras, and they’re cotton, so the dress’s lining stays put. Frankly, they’re comfy as hell. They’re SO comfy. I’m not switching to giant knickers exclusively, but I’m really, really glad I’ve added these to my rotation of bikini briefs and shorties. For the gym, for slinky dresses, and for certain times of the month, these are going to become my go-to.
