What a way to start a post, eh? Straight in with the underwear talk! And what are you wearing today then? Ok, so that is probably taking it a little too far – but this is going to be a post about underwear and I don’t want to hide it from you, only for it to jump up and bite you in your (underwear clad) arse at the end!
The thing about pants, you see, is that they are undervalued. I can’t be the only one who gets from day-to-day with horrible underwear – grey limp oldies nestled amongst cheap holey pairs, and even pretty lace examples that have seen better days. I have a few sets of pretty underwear – but even they were looking a little faded and sorry for themselves.
Because I believe that underwear can set you up for the day ahead, I decided to make a move. To make a stand for underwear around the world, if you will. I have had an underwear purge! It was scary, it wasn’t pretty… but now it is done I feel a million times better.
You know what I did? I threw it all out. With the exception of one bra and my super stretchy skinnifying pants, I chucked it all! I then went out to the sales, and bought three new, perfect fitting bras. One was from M&S, the other 2 from House of Fraser – and all were in the sale. Knickers-wise, I tripped to La Senza – and bought 10 neat pairs of smart whites, smart blacks, with a couple of colours thrown in. Nothing garish, this is me growing up!
Now, I have the perfect amount to tide me over between washes, my draw is organised, and I feel lovely! Simple!
