Last week, I offered up a challenge to myself…to dig through my old (and often uncomfortable or ill-fitting) lingerie and begin purging to make way for newer, fresher, better, more comfortable, more “me” pieces that I will wear, instead of falling back on the boring (though comfy) beige/white/black things that I have now put through the wash so many times they are starting to look like things the dogs may have dragged in out of the rain.
I actually did purchase a few new things (some with myself in mind and a few with Him in mind – ahem…let’s keep those a secret, shall we?). But, I’ve still got quite a few old things to fumble through, and you get to see their last run here (or our reunion, if I decide to keep them).
Though I love the look of last week’s set, I just couldn’t handle it. By 5 pm, my ribs hurt from the underwire, and I could. not. wait. to get the damn thing off. And the panties kept sliding because they were too loose. So, that one is being purged. I made sure to replace it with some more black and red, though – since those are definitely two of my favorite colors for lingerie (or anything, really).
This week’s set, however…
Even though it’s not terribly comfortable, I do love the lace pattern. The panties are little high-waisted for my taste. I’m not usually into briefs (I prefer hipsters b/c they flatter my bigger hips and ass and don’t squeeze in to create a muffin top at my waist), but they match, and I’m not sure what else would go with this bra.
Imma gonna keep this one.
For those interested: I’m a size 16 and the set was purchased from adoreme.com – 40C bra and 1X panty.
P.S. I’m not allowed to wear panties on Fridays (per my rules); however my Husband has made an allowance that I may wear crotchless panties or slipshorts under skirts (as I tend to chafe if I go completely without). Since I don’t have anything crotchless (umm…wtf? right?), I had to make do by cutting the crotch out of an older pair of slip shorts. I sent Him a photo text from work in the middle of the day to show Him what I’d done. Just thought I’d share that here…as it seemed fitting per the meme. (I was quite aware of how “exposed” I was all day. So I suppose the rule is rather successful. In fact, I was more aware of it with a skirt and these slip shorts, that I would have been with jeans or leggings on. There’s just something about the air having access to my most private places that keeps me “present.” I do have some crotchless items on the way, so I won’t have to modify anymore of my under things.
