mormon girls and their underwear
i had to laugh when i saw this post on the pioneer woman . it made me think of my own teenage battles with my mom over underwear. my mom, a garment wearing, faithful lds woman, believed in the old school technique of teaching modesty which basically meant that i was only allowed to wear clothing that would accommodate garments. this was to prepare me for the quickly approaching day that i would be married in the temple to my own personal rm. every year under the christmas tree was a sears box lovingly wrapped by my mother that contained that years supply of appropriate underwear. white granny panties. yep. thats what my mother thought every young woman should wear. but all my friends wore cute bikinis. in a rainbow of colors. some even had the days of the week printed on them. i wanted some of those cute bikinis! i was tired of my old fashioned white underwear sticking out of my super cool looking 501 jeans and ruining my whole look. i started using my babysitting money and buying cute underwear. my mother was not happy(i think she was calling the bishop to counsel me and my wicked ways), but i was able to talk her down from the cliff and prevent her from throwing them away when i explained that no one but me sees them and what was worse-bikinis that no one could see or big ole white underwear sticking out from my waistband? she reluctantly agreed, but made me promise no string bikinis. she drives a hard bargain. i remember when thongs started getting popular and you could actually pick them up at target instead of having to wear a wig and dark sunglasses and sneak into fredricks of hollywood to buy them. i was married at this point, so i got a few. of course msof LOVED them. men are so silly sometimes....yet we indulge them. why is that? i hope this isnt too personal, but i hope all the good lds(married)girls got some thongs and other racy stuff at all the showers that were thrown for them. dont hide them in a drawer!! break them out and break them in. they wont stay on for long anyway.
