underpants with glasses

underpants with glasses, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

It is true that new underwear is a big thrill for me.

Here is photographic proof.

Now, don't get me wrong.
It isn't the kind of thing that I do as a "pick me up" or anything. I don't have that kind of relationship with intimate apparel.

Rather, I don't tend to freshen it up often enough.
Once I was folding laundry and was saddened to notice that the waistband seam had finally given way on my "newest" pair that my Mom had bought me four years before when I was 18.

It isn't always that bad but it is one of those things that I don't think much about either.

This time, I had no choice but to deal with it.

My body has changed shape over the last few years and in particular over the last few months and the stuff I had wasn't even functional anymore.

Here is a small glimpse of what was purchased - all on sale!

None of it matches, but it is all comfortable and fits.

I am particularly pleased with the bright yellow happy bunny underpants - they are so dang cheerful.

My kids are horrified.

Great picture, and for what it's worth, I live to horrify my kids.

I love those rabbit pants and am off to see if I can get some online! I'm the same with underwear and am still wearing some that I had with my first pregnancy - they're not exactly sprightly!

I can just imagine the reaction of my three teenage boys if I posted photos of my underpants on my blog ....

I love those happy undies! For years I worked in a very uptight corporate office and had to dress 'professionally' so to balance the blahs I wore wild and crazy undies and HotSox socks...

Wonderful! I want some too.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
