Bump up that Rump

Fashion is, indeed, a fickle beast.

For most of the past several centuries, women have squirmed and twisted their way into full-length corsets, girdles, control-top pantyhose, and any other garments that promised to slim ample hips and backsides.  When those slenderizing promises didn’t exactly come to fruition, most pear-shaped ladies concealed their abundant assets beneath long and shapeless skirts, fervently hoping that no eyes strayed south-of-the-border to Nature’s plenty.

Are You Ready for Cyber Panties?

If you randomly poll 100 women  you meet today on the street, at the grocery store, at your kid’s pee-wee soccer game, or at the gym and ask them one simple question, “Why do you wear underwear,” I dare say you’ll receive a myriad of responses.  “Aren’t I supposed to?”  “So nobody can see through my white shorts, of course!”  “I want to feel sexy under these jeans.”  “I’m not quite in the same shape I was prior to having children so these panties rein me in.”  Well, here’s another one that’ll soon be added to that extensive list, “I need to monitor my blood pressure.” [...]

The End of Granny Panties?

Recently, I had the chance to spend some time at a hotel in the middle of Lancaster County – the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country.  I was able to see some sights I don’t normally witness at home.  For instance, one morning as I breakfasted, I saw an Amish gentleman driving his horse-drawn buggy along the side of the road.  Several minutes later, he was followed by three young girls garbed in traditional long dresses and bonnets, carrying their schoolbooks.  After I finished eating, I was depositing my empty plate in a nearby trash can when my eyes spotted a rather surprising, laminated flier.  “Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” it read.  I was shocked.  Why on earth was something about racy lingerie taking up residence in such an idyllic, old-fashioned setting?

Ladies, have you ever given much thought to the gender of the person who waits on you in a lingerie department or rings through your intimates at a big box store?  To be perfectly honest, I’ve always been more concerned with the actions of the other customers waiting to be rung up.  I try to avoid standing behind the harried woman who’s simultaneously trying to hold an infant, keep tabs on her toddler, argue with her “tween”ager, fumble with her car keys, and search frantically for her debit card (whose PIN she inevitably can’t remember), all while arguing with the sales associate over a pricing question.  When I pull the short straw and find that person in front of me, my already-simmering blood hits a full boil and I frantically scan the store for a less-congested lane, or at least one with no “customer issues.”  Needless to say, I’m not the type of woman who cares whether a man or a woman waits on me as long as I receive pleasant, prompt, and professional customer service.
