 If you’re revving up for a Thanksgiving Weekend full of power shopping, you probably have a game plan already in place.  You’ve researched the best sales, created an itinerary, and selected your shopping mate.  You know which pair of comfy shoes you’ll be wearing and what kinds of snacks you’ll be stocking in your purse.  If you’re one of those diehards who’ll be camping out in line, outside of a store, on Thanksgiving evening or during the wee hours of Friday morning, you no doubt are preparing to bring cold-weather gear, a chair, and a thermos of your favorite hot beverage.  You’re ready to go … or are you?  Have you given any thought to the panties you’ll be wearing for shopping’s version of the Olympic decathlon?  No?  Then you might want to spend a few minutes reading what follows.  Why?  Wedgies, VPLs, and Black Friday simply don’t mix.
