Also hideous on me. To get even up closer and personal: how many pairs of knickers do you own?
If I don’t count the fancy ones which stay in the drawer plotting their escape, maybe 30 pairs of pants.
How do you categorise them - do you have like a Monica ‘towel, fancy towel’ situation but for knickers?
My husband takes up all the drawers so I have one which has to handle pants, socks, tights bras and the rest. Every day is a scrabble.
I love that he takes up all the drawers! I want to do a whole interview with him and his bountiful pant situ now. How often do you purge your underwear drawer?
When I find a pair of lacy pants which I remember buying over a decade ago, I fish them out and say a solemn goodbye. Daily thongs probably have a one year shelf life.
I find I only purge mine when I have grown out of the knickers in question. Which is strange because aside from pregnancy I am the same size. I imagine the knickers change, not me, but that’s not a given. Anyway, I’ve got some fun underwear facts for you:
- King Tut was buried with 145 pairs of underwear.
- Carrie Fisher never wore underwear while filming Star Wars, because George Lucas convinced her there was no underwear in space
- 15% of women own underwear that’s between 5 and 9 years old.
Tell me a fun fact about knickers.
Paper knickers were a marketing thing for a while, advertised to women who travelled a lot. Rustling = sexy.
Oh yes that is good. Like wearing the knickers you get when (if) you get a wax. Now, I remember you once found a pair of knickers down the leg of your leggings. After you’d completed your run. Or was it a sock?
It was a pair of pants. Still amazing to me.
