Big Girl Undies

A few months ago, I was shopping in mylocal Greenpoint, Brooklyn discount-mart and came across something new that I wanted to try.

Big Girl Undies


I always liked to browse through what we’ll call the lingerie section of my favorite closeout store on Manhattan Avenue. I happen to be a big fan of slightly-damaged men’s Hanes boxes when it comes to sleepwear, and they happen to stock tons of it.

While I sifted through the damaged men’s boxers, I noticed some lovely 1920′s-inspired ladies garments hanging on the walls. We’re talking high-waisted, supa sexy, lace-inset undies staring me in the face in all of their ballet pink and classic black glory.

After purchasing a few $2 pairs, I took them home only to have my roommate bring me back down to earth by reminding me that they were notsomuch sexy undies inspired by the 1920s but instead actual control-top granny panties.

Still, they’re actually quite cute, comfy, and make you feel much more confident when you’re wearing a short skirt on a breezy day.

Not to mention that they’re available from the department store to the discount store, wherever you’re more comfortable.
