I am seeing VPL everywhere this week. It’s like it’s taunting me. On the lady in the elevator, on the Congresswoman on the tram, on the intern in the cafeteria…I cannot escape it. So to those of you still wearing full seat underwear with a seamed edge, step into my (metaphorical) office.
Full seat underwear is the enemy. Underwear with seams is the enemy. If you are wearing cotton full bottom underwear, then you need an intervention. And don’t believe Victoria’s Secret for one second, those underwear they sell that promise to eliminate VPL, don’t.
1) Buy a thong. Hanky Pankys are actually comfortable. If they weren’t, every retailer on the planet wouldn’t be copying their one-size-fits-most design, would they?
2) If a thong is beyond you–baby steps and all–try a lace boyshort. Hanky Panky is my go to brand. Full coverage. Cute colors. No panty line. And, I bet your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/hookup will like them a lot better than your Granny Panties too.
I need to beat back this scourge before my big mouth leads me to stop someone in the hallways of the Capitol for an in person intervention. Your cooperation in this matter is deeply appreciated.
If you are going to spend $35 on underwear–and I am recommending that you do–buy an intimates bag (or three) and wash them with Woolite on the delicates cycle. These are an investment, treat them accordingly.
