More on the vests and pants issue.

Now. Just wait a minute there, campers.

There seems to be some disagreements in terms of what is acceptable, underwear-wise.

The comments section from the bras-and-knickers-based post has revealed that some people think that:

a) red underwear is slutty and whorish.
b) white underwear is unacceptable.
c) both are fine.
d) it's not the underwear, it's what's beneath the underwear that counts.

Well. I think:

a) sometimes it's a fun to be a bit slutty and whorish. In the right context. Not perhaps when standing on a street corner and twinned with a pair of patent thigh-high boots.
b) white underwear is fine, and can be sexy, but you have to wash it separately and that is just HASSLE and I am not a fan of hassle, you know I'm not.
c) um, yeah.
d) absolutely. That's why I go to the gym every morning and do yoga every night before bed.*

My FAVOURITE kind is black and lacy. But I would like fun and racy, as well. Leopard-print, maybe. Or sparkly. Or made from the hides of sparkly leopards.

I have two things to say in regards to two specific comments, though.


"Boyshorts (as they are called here in the States) are wickedly hotttt.

In my express personal opinion."

Yes, I agree. If there ever was a good use for a sparkly leopard, it would be this.


"I picked black and/or white because they are the standard classic colors. I would have never said red. Red just screams "Leave the $50 on the nightstand before you go"."

Um, I don't pretend to know much about this sort of thing, right, but FIFTY DOLLARS? Isn't that like...not that much money?

(starts to do some maths)
(gets distracted by a pretty flower and/or own hand)

Twenty-five or thirty pounds?

That doesn't seem right. As I said, I'm not massively experienced in this area, so correct me if I'm wrong. I just would've thought it would cost more than that.

Then again, London prices are high. You can hardly get a pint of beer for that nowadays.

Well, let me know what your opinions are on this subject in more detail. What would one choose if one wanted to come across (ahem) (oh I am so sorry, that was filthy) as being, I suppose, racy and naughty but actually nice as a person and with dignity but not so much that it gets in the way of the fun stuff?

Adam, don't say bloomers, please.

*Some parts of this sentence may not be strictly aligned to what is true in real life.

(ALSO: I'm sorry I haven't done links on the names but my Blogger is funny and won't let me do anything, and frankly I can't really be bothered to work out why or how to fix it. Come on, I can't even be bothered to separate my whites, give me a break.)

Satiny thong with matching satiny bra. Doesn't really matter what color. Go crazy with blue or purple or whatever you like.

I like the idea of purple that dawnie proposed. That would be something sexy and fun. Maybe you can even get one made out of a purple sparkly leopard.

As for the $50, I have no idea how much that would cost (since I have never been in the market for a street woman) so i just used some random number. Keep in mind that in the US it's all illegal.

Bloomers! Awful word!

Now, I don't know much about ladies under garments, but I do know that you should wear what you feel comfortable in and what makes you feel like a sexy lady!

Here is my pictorial guide:

It goes, (Left to Right) Sexy, Sexy, NOT sexy

Black lacy - good. Sparkly leopard print - very good.

As for the other matter I guess you get what you pay for. I was once offered a blow job for a tenner off a gammy toothed crack whore at King Cross (I should quickly add that I politely declined).

I have ones w/ squares, polka dots, plain black or plain cream, pinks, blues and greens.. I have 2 very sexy bras - one red and one black and grey.. but have yet to wear them cuz they really aren't for under things if you know what I mean. But the last boyfriend was fine w/ the every day stuff - basic can be very sexy.. frills were cute, but the black basic did the trick w/ just a tiny glance every time.

Um yes.

90% of my underwear is black, plain but fairly slinky. And upholstered. (It's all about the support)

Not wildly exciting, but not, like, embarrassing either...

Hi. I still lurk here lots, very funny blog. :) I had no idea that red lingerie was perceived as trashy. Maybe I need to change my shopping habits? I say just about anything from Victoria's Secret is a safe bet. Although a guy friend of mine recently said sort of absent mindedly, "My girlfriend doesn't have anything like that, because she's not slutty." And I was like, wait, what are you saying? Oh well. Also, you can never go wrong with black, I think. Unless it has the word 'bloomers' in it. Eek.

In my effort to find a picture of "boyshorts", I found many pictures that would be, (for lack of a better word), pornographic.

While some readers might not mind that, I settled with this pic here (you'll have to copy/paste the URL yourself):

Please note also that I came across this pic via a Google Image search. I swear.

But like you said, its whats underneath that really matters.

My flatmates (all boys) say dark purple is very sexy. I have a lovely matching set, which they have dubbed *the lucky set*. I call it my date underwear.

Try Rigby and Peller - surprisingly not as expensive as you'd think, free fitting (does wonders!!!) Very pretty, classy and delicious without being slutty...

I love red underwear. Make of that what you will!
