Caitlin Moran has the right idea when it comes to pants. Sometimes, indeed most of the time, I just want some comfy pants that ensconce my backside in its entirety and don't require yanking out of my arse crack numerous times a day. Of course we like pretty knickers that we wear for special occasions, or to match outfits, or just because we fancy wearing some frilly kecks that day.
But really what I would love, about 95% of the time, is panties that don't get in a bunch or a wad, that don't give me a wedgie, that don't feel like cheese wire, and that actually COVER MY ASS.
I have just spent the last hour searching online for some new pants because mine are looking decidedly old & past their best, but unfortunately all I can find are;
- boy shorts - which my arse will stick out the bottom of, and really I don't particularly enjoy wearing something that looks & sounds like it was made for my sons.
- french knickers - too fussy & lacy for every day wear, I'm not expecting Christian Grey to come bursting in to ravish me at any minute so really quite unnecessary.
- thongs - again... really? Okay for occasional wear & to prevent VPL of course but I'm not anticipating a visit from Sisqo so I don't think anyone else really cares.
- and some weird strappy belt-like bandana style that, if my ass had eyes, would make it look like it was wearing a disguise.
Wish me luck, because failing that I will have to resort to apple catchers.
