Unmentionables

Fundies. This is what Ryder refers to as underwear. And that is what this post is about. So let this be your fair warning. Steer clear if you're gonna get your--dare I say--panties in a bunch.

I've been in denial since I've had my two boys. You see, I've always had a little somethin' somethin' around the middle. Call them love handles, rolls, whatever you want but you've always been able to "pinch an inch" on this bod. But now it's even worse. Since I've had my darling boys, I've held onto my cute little Victoria's Secret bikini undies thinking that I would just slip back into those puppies. Not happenin'. Never gonna happen again, I'm afraid. I remember hearing stories that your body never fully returns to its pre-baby look. Well now I can attest to that first hand. For all you non-stretch mark size 2's out there--I officially hate you.

So I've been holding out. Waiting for a miracle, I guess. But no matter how many crunches I do, this stuff just won't go away. Shoot--forget saving for college--I'm saving for a tummy tuck. But in the mean time, a girl's gotta wear undies. So I went to Walmart post-baby to get some Hanes to hold me over while I was in this "transition stage." It's funny how long that transition stage lasts. And up to about a week ago, I was sick and tired of wearing granny panties. Let's face it, people--there's nothing sexy about a girl in some white cotton Hanes jacked up to her belly button. So last Wed. I checked out Victoria's Secret website. "What are my options nowadays," I thought to myself. And let me just tell you what I saw. Here are the subcategories under panties:

Supermodel Essentials (Oh yes--this is exactly what I'm looking for.)
Holiday Lingerie Shop (Since we all have extra money to blow on some naughty or nice draws.)
Fancy Panties (Whatever happened to plain ol' cotton skivvies?)
"Hello, Bombshell!" (Umm...)

What is this world coming to? I just want some cute plain underwear! And then I found these.

Hey, they fit the bill. Cute, fun, cotton, mom-friendly. They're VS's high-leg briefs. And I must say, they are super comfy. No wedgies here. And they just happened to be on sale. Wed. was the last day to get them 7/$25. They're normally 5/$25. So I felt pretty good ordering these. Yes, I did have to go all "mom fit" on ya but at least I didn't have to order a larger size. I'm all about small victories. Is it time for you to "upgrade" to some new fundies?

  1. Your comment about size 2 made me think of my friend. She said that if you are going to be that small you might as well just be invisable and what fun is that?!

  2. Did you intend to have a pun: "victories" (vickie's/victoria's sectret)? ;)
    I love undies from the Gap. Victoria's Secret undies seem to not fit me so well. Just in case you were looking for another alternative to Hanes. And, they're often on sale at the outlets!
