I seem to be on a fashion critic kick lately...
In order to buy decent, everyday underwear, you either need to be a super sexually-flirtatious teenager or a conservative librarian pushing 50. Or at least this is the case with Victoria Secret.
I went to VS the other day to replace my underwear -- nothing fancy, just the usual, routine, everyday, comfortable panties. I was drawn in by the 5 pairs for $25 deal, only to be very disappointed in the selection and a little stressed out.
Being the 20 something young professional that I am, I'm not interested in underwear that has bubble gum or that stupid dog on it and says "LOVE PINK, LOVE PINK, LOVE PINK" or "Kiss me, I'm a Bitch" on the butt in shiny silver. Nor do I want a scrap of lace 1 sq. in x1 sq. in. or boy-like briefs in high-waisted pastel floral patterns. Why can't I just get a regular low-rise pair of purple cotton "bikinis" or maybe something with stripes -- something NORMAL.
I could tell I wasn't the only one who felt this way because two women scanning the merchandise near me -- one looked like your stereotypical soccer mom in her baggy sweats and the other looked like she was a young professional in her late 20s/early 30s -- also picked up pair after pair only to say "ugh" or "bleck" and put them back. The young professional walked out. I am justified.
After about 20 minutes of rummaging through those drawers, I ended up just grabbing without looking and I ended up with let's just say some okay and some interesting choices. I don't think I'm being too conservative or uptight here. I just want to know where have all the good underwear gone?
