I am pro underwear. After working for a uniform rental company for 12 years, I can attest that you can tell who does and doesn't use underwear. Those who go commando have garments develop what is referred to as crotch rot. The garments simply wear out in the crotch area.
Don't get me wrong, I do understand the freedom of being under garmentless. I loved to skinny dip in our pool. I sleep naked. But in every day life, one needs an undergarment to absorb moisture, to keep your clothes out of the cracks and crannies.
I understand the desire for sexy, silky, alluring underwear. That can be fun! In the right place, at the right time, but for plain old every day adventure, nothing beats breathable, bleachable cotton. And now days you can get it in all shades, prints, textures, styles. It's a beautiful thing.
And while we are on the subject, who in the world actually enjoys wearing thongs?! That's like having a continual wedgie! I've got a pair or two that go with little gowns for romantic evenings, but you could not pay me enough money to wear one all day long.
So, am I a disjointed old fuddie-duddie, or do you share my underwear observations? Have you gone commando?
