As a journalist, I’m trained to ask the hard questions, like “What are the hottest trends in wedding accessories?” or “What kind of country crafts will you sell at your new mall kiosk?”
So I pitched my Panel of Gentleman about their underwear preference on ladies, and the results were surprising. Only one person, went for thongs, and that was after “extensive research.”
That’s right ladies. You can go ahead and pry that string out from between the cheeks.
The majority of Gentlemen went for bikinis. One singled out “the kind with those little ribbons on the sides that undo them.” A few went for boy shorts, but overwhelmingly, bikinis won.
I’ll admit, I was surprised. I always sort of figured underwear was one of those things men had ideas about that they never broached. Like, “I wish my wife wore thongs, but all she wears are granny panties!” But that so many came out in support of a simple, easy to find and wearable type of lingerie made me have hope that maybe, just maybe, you can be pretty and comfortable at the same time. My boyfriend Ian summed it up thusly–“As long as they define the feminine shape and don’t look like you’ve packed two loaves of bread into your pants, they’re good.”
And thus, we conclude Panty Week.
