Panty Lines


(It's sad that there weren't more attractive panty line images on google..)

Growing up in Dubai, every September my mother would buy me ten new white panties. The kind that is so big, in case of an emergency you can use them to cover tables. They were always white.

So the first thing I did when I got a job was to indulge myself in all sorts of frilly, colored contraptions that posed as underwear. Black, red, yellow, pink…I have every imaginable color and style. I swore never again to wear full back white panties.

I had an idea of being one of those hot working women who wear stockings and garters under their well fitted pencil skirts.

Then you grow up, and realize that garters though sexy in theory are incredible pains in real life. And stockings are nightmares. How come they’ve managed to repeatedly send people to the moon but can’t make a pair of stockings that don’t get holes…..that my friends is the real conspiracy.

I’m losing my fascination with thongs. It all started with the annual la senza sale, where this pair of white, micro fiber briefs was on sale. Despite my promise to never wear white full backs again, I decided to pick the pair up as part of my 10 for 10. A month later, and I’ve added 10 more to my collection. These are the most comfortable pair of undies I have ever worn. And there is something very sexy about a plain white bra, and white briefs. (Men do you agree?)

The only issue is the damn panty lines. All these years of being line free, it’s a bit grating to walk by a mirror and see the ominous line on a pair of well tailored pants.

I put the question to you, are panty lines back? Or is it that as you get older comfort begins to triumph the perfect look?

I personally feel that I'd rather be comfortable in panties that show lines through my pants than have a piece of uncomfortable fabric stuck up my ass all day. But that's just me.

As a man, I'm a little embarrased to say I prefer cotton briefs on women as compared to 2 rubberbands and a piece of cotton.

Yo, Rock It Granny-Panty Style!

Yeeeaaahhhh Booooooyyyyyeeeeee!

Peace.

I think there's a certain amount of sexy in well-fitting plain white undies, but I find it even sexier when women spend their free time snapping phone cam shots of panty lines. Seriously, nobody buys that whole "I Googled it" line.

lol@Blog Portland!

I got over the thong craze before the thong song even went outta style.

I prefer bikini briefs in as many different colors as I can find...including white! lol

I really like the look a woman gives without panty lines, just a smooth face of ... ass

Plain white is very nice and ... cough, cough ... pure

Using my secret agent deduction skills, I conclude that panty lines are a natural progression to old age and diapers.

Why don't you just go commando?

ms. complexity said...

A) boyshorts are the best
B) Stop wearing clothes that are too tight!

Crankyputz said...

OE: I think there was a hidden message there. But I am ignoring it...

Ms. Complexity: Not tight, well fitted...

Dyck, Brilliant suggestion...but somewhat uncomfortable...i know who wouldave though...but really I would wondering each moment if I was accidentally pulling a Britney Spears..

Not caring about panty lines is the first step to becoming old...just wait until you stop caring about your eyebrows.

i love la senza boy briefs and boy cut shorts. love em to death. i had a friend who worked there and teefed me a heap of undies. thongs are cool, but i dont sleep in them. thongs in my ass give me nightmares.

at any rate, i got my la senza discount card if you want 10% for online shopping.

Miz JJ said...

La senza has seamless panties that come in boy shorts. They are expensive, but is there a price you can put on not having a piece of cloth up your bottom?

ms. complexity said...

hahahah I'm with island spice... let's hear bout the blind date!

Leon said...

I've always liked panty lines. They act as a bit of a preview. Sometimes when I'm bored, I play a guessing game with the women that pass by.

Grant Miller said...

This is so naughty!

Shame!

GC said...

all this talk about La Senza
I went to their website and I think I might take the risk of buying a thing or two just to try.

anyway, you've been tagged back at my blog
hope you'll drop by and take the challenge
