I absolutely hate thongs. Wow, what a way to start off a blog post right? In high school, I remember my friends convincing me that I should wear thongs because other underwear were ugly and uncomfortable. Most of the time I was a pretty independent person, but when it came to certain things I was an impressionable teenager. Of course, I started to wear thongs not to look cool, but because I really thought a thong would be more comfortable.
Now, all grown up-ish and definitely less impressionable I would rather go without underwear than wear a thong any day! Just a few years ago, at 20, I would get the softest of thongs (mainly when I went out dancing) and still would feel uncomfortable. It’s crazy to think of how much has changed in just a few short years. Now I don’t even buy lacy, sexy panties let alone low-rise hipster boy shorts that do nothing but give you a wedgie.
You guys already know that I’m all about comfort and refuse to sacrifice it for style. There are so many ways to be comfortable and stylish at the same damn time…but that’s for another post.
I needed new underwear and I’ve needed new underwear for a while now. Next to shopping for jeans, underwear might be the most difficult garment to shop for. Why is there so much decoration and lace and giant seams that cut into your skin? Yeah, I’m looking at you Victoria Secret! Don’t get me wrong, I own VS and PINK underwear that have worked fine, but it’s definitely a process to find the super comfortable ones that are at least cute and aren’t some fluorescent loud color.
I’m sure you’ve noticed I said “needed” underwear and not need, so you know that I found some finally. Guess where….or should I say guess who? Calvin Klein of course. The only reason I avoided any name brand undies before is because everything always comes sold individually and it can easily be $20 for just one pair of undies. It’s not like undies are like a pair of jeans or leggings that you can wear four days in a row without washing. Eww.
Of course, I could have gone to Target or Walmart and gotten some Fruit of the Loom underwear, but even those somehow fit two sizes too big and always bunch up under clothing. Anyway, back to the Calvin Klein panties. They had a three pack of bikini cut for $30 at Macy’s. Of course, Macy’s was having a sale so they ended up only costing $17. Guess who purchased that three pack and ended up getting another pack a couple of days later? ME!
The Calvin Klein panties are pretty much everything I was looking for. They are comfortable, they fit well, and the seams don’t cut into my lady skin. I don’t even care about their giant Calvin Klein logo for the waistband because even that is comfy.
It’s about time that there is some simple yet cute underwear that women can buy again without breaking the bank. I know you are probably only seeing two pairs in the picture, but of course, I’m currently wearing a pair!
This whole post sounds a whole lot like a review, but really I’m just so happy to finally find undies that are comfortable that don’t lead to wedgies. If I wouldn’t have purchased these, I was seriously about to sew up my own pair which wouldn’t have been a bad idea. Hey, I still might make my own bras and panties… who knows?
Thanks for reading as usual!
