To panty or not to panty? That is the question. Over the years, quite a few ladies have asked if they are supposed to wear anything under their skirts. This is a big time question; one that many women consider private. We are happy to talk about thigh chafing, our breasts, the ins & outs of active pregnancy, sneezing & peeing; but our undies are sort of personal. I think it's because the type of underwear we wear says a lot about who we are. Are you a g-string, sport brief, French cut 80s high-rider, lacey vixen, granny panty, boypant, edible variety, or “must always match my outfit” undie gal?
Panty transparency is a bold thing. Three days after we hired our Digital Marketing Manager, Janet Ehlers, we were slinging Skirts at the crazy-busy Tri for the Cure expo and for who-knows-what-reason, we started talking about our obsessive quirks. I think I may have mentioned nose-picking (come on - that dry Colorado air creates some serious crusties), and before anyone else could chime in, Janet blurted out, “Well, I wear granny panties!” She then lowered her waistband about half an inch to show us said grannies! It was a bold move that showcased both her comfort with the team and the height of her undies!
I've had a storied panty past. In my 20s, I was a commando gal. Whether I was lazy or poor (or both), I just didn't see the point of wearing underwear. Eventually I morphed into a thong girl. I was obsessed with Hanky Pankies, those low-rider lacey little things. I still have a few in the back of my drawer. When I got pregnant a couple years ago, I went to Target to invest in the first of many cotton 3-pack granny panties. These monstrosities nicely blanketed my expanded derriere.
When I pulled up my pregnancy grannies the other night (a year after having my baby) and snapped them into place, halfway up my back, Tim sarcastically said, “Sexy. So Sexy.” Today I am in no-man's land. I haven't figured out what “undies” I am as a 40 year old, working, active new mom.
While I ponder my current intimates conundrum, I find relief in the fact that when I wear Skirt Sports, I don't have to worry about undies at all. Our products are made to Go Commando. How's that for liberation? I am giving you permission right now to stuff those panties back in your locker and pull your skirt straight up over your skin. Talk about total freedom!
So in case you were wondering, it's totally acceptable to go commando around town in Skirt Sports. But we won't judge if you choose to wear panties under your skirts (and shorts), that's cool, but please check to see if your grannies are sticking out above the back of your Gym Girl!
If you must wear non-Skirt products from time to time that require underwear, the Panty Police want to know - What kind of Undies Gal are you? Head over to our Facebook Page to vote on your favorite style!
