Okay folks, I thought I’d revisit one of my first posts from when IÃ‚Â started Housewifecafe. Ã‚Â As you can tell from the title of this post, I’ll be updating you on my bargain basement undergarment choices and offer you the best in panty consumer reporting.Ã‚Â And no, I can not furnish photos.Ã‚Â I have a rep to protect.
The bottom line:Ã‚Â Underwear purchased at the grocery store should be viewed as a solely temporary measure.Ã‚Â
For instance, let’s just say you head to a black tie affair and realize that getting out of your limo can’t be executed without introducing your privates to your faithful fans, you might say “Jeeves, be a dear and swing by the Giant Eagle, and grab me some underpants.Ã‚Â They’re in aisle six by the fishing poles.”Ã‚Â And then after you’ve saved face, you might as well chuck them into the garbage because that’s where they’ll find a home within a year.Ã‚Â Now I can’t say I know the life expectancy for undergarments, but I suspect it should be longer than 12 months.Ã‚Â
However,Ã‚Â considering the two for three dollar price, perhaps they are holding up to the manufacturer’s expectation.Ã‚Â Either way, after a night with Leo and Vince, feel free to chuck em in the can outside the soiree.Ã‚Â Don’t wait until you’re walking around with limpy wears–like men have been known to do without a thought.Ã‚Â
What IS it with men who wear tighty-whities to the point of torture.Ã‚Â First the sight of tighty whities is difficult for those who might see said wearer in his briefs.Ã‚Â Then the underpants grow tired and sagÃ‚Â like elephant skin.Ã‚Â But that’s not nearly far enough for the true tighty-whitey devotee. No, this guy wears the briefs to the point of invisibility.Ã‚Â Why, man?Ã‚Â Why do you go to these lengths?Ã‚Â
Even at my lowest undergarment point I had the brains to purchase aÃ‚Â set at the grocery store.
Onto undergarments that have kicked ass.Ã‚Â The Hanes brand is fantastic and only slightly more expensive than the grocery store set.Ã‚Â No, we’re not talking 5’10” sexy minx in a box, but if anyone remembers Ann Archer (in Fatal Attraction) sitting at her dressing table in her tasteful whites, brushing her hair, totally unaware of her rabbit’s pending death, well, you get the picture.Ã‚Â The Hanes are not a bad buy.
Now I know people swear by thong underpants but I don’t see it, I can’t get behind that for a plethora of reasons.Ã‚Â Feel free to sing their praises here if you choose.
And finally, to bring up the rear of the undergarment post.Ã‚Â Is there a nastier, uglier, undergarment than the jock strap?Ã‚Â Is there really no more attractive way to keep things together for a game of hand-ball?Ã‚Â If we can put a man on the moon, you’d think we’d be able to…
