A few weeks ago when I was on spring break in the suburbs, a couple of friends and I embarked on a spontaneous trip to the mall, where we proceeded to enter a Victoria’s Secret. It was frightening. Bras and panties in every shape and color. To most women (my friends included), this sight is probably fairly commonplace, but to me it was like walking into landmine after landmine of embarrassment for my puritanical eyes. I realized then that I’d never properly shopped for underwear before.
Before you get me wrong, this doesn’t mean that I go commando every day. I just don’t feel the need to be “sexy,” (Is that weird? It is, right? Especially for a “fashion person?”) which I think is the point of all the undergarment hype. That’s why underwear shopping for me is usually a 5-minute affair at Target. No frills. No nonsense. Done and done.
But lately, I’ve been feeling the need for nicer underthings, perhaps because summer is the time when they are most prone to exposure (accidentally or not) or perhaps because I’m nearing graduation and being forced to think about having to be a grown-up (kinda scary). I don’t know. All I know is that cute undergarments have suddenly become a must-have for me.
And once I looked into it, I realized that cute underwear is freaking everywhere! Seriously. Walk into any women’s fashion-ish store and just look around. Ruffles, lace, and bows galore, right? How can anything in this category not be cute? Oh, how blind I was.
Anyways, I’m not sure if any of this is relatable at all, but the above is basically a really long way of saying “Here are some pretty underthings I like for summer!” I’ll let the lingerie speak for itself now and run off to buy that adorable lavender set… in the name of facing my fear, of course.
