How to Avoid Showing Panty Lines - Are Panty Lines Okay?
What's Wrong with Having Panty Lines?
Women wear panties. At least, they do much of the time. But they work so hard at hiding the panty lines. Why? Does the world want women to wear panties or not? Don’t answer that. I guess it depends on who you are. And the situation. Let’s face it. There are some skirts or pants that will show panty lines. You know the material—that slinky, clingy (even if not tight) material that just makes those lines shine. So, I ask you, what’s a girl to do?
Panty lines or not?
Those Pesky Panty Lines
I’ll admit it. Up until a certain age, I was a victim of society’s “You’ve got panty lines” guilt. I brainstormed on how to stop those horrendous tell-tale signs of panty-wearing. I tried different clothing, different panties….
Again, what’s a girl to do? I fought trying the thong panty for a while. For years I just knew that nice girls didn’t wear thongs! That archaic notion eventually turned into the “The thong’s not professional” premise. Ha! Well, then leave it off the resume! No need to show your boss your underwear! (No comments, please….)
So What Do You Do About Panty Lines?
Okay, so now with all the excuses shot down in my early to mid-thirties, I decided to buy the panty-line free thong as a new, liberated, hopefully panty-line free woman. The results? I had a permanent wedgie--both embarrassing and uncomfortable--ALL DAY LONG! Perhaps there are women who can handle that feeling, or maybe I bought the wrong kind, but, for me, the thong, as for other women I know, was not the answer to this age-old dilemma of panty lines. I guess I could wear pantyhose without panties. But in 100 degree weather? No, thank you. I had to make a decision which didn’t involve going bare under a skirt.
If You Must Try to Hide Your Panty Lines....
Accept Your Panty Lines!
Sisters, I embraced my panty lines. It took years! But I finally broke through society’s expectations as well as my own self-consciousness, deciding that, if I had panty lines, then so be it! I mean, if someone were to notice my no panty lines look, then what would a person think? That either I’m wearing no panties at all or I’m wearing a thong? I wasn’t comfortable with either (physically in both cases).
A few years down the road, I did make quite a find with some panties advertised as panty line-less. How is that? They had thin material and a lack of hem that made them smooth. The panty line was minimized. What a find—the best of both worlds! But now I don’t remember what kind they were. Hanes, I think. You might look for some of those.
Why, I ask, is having panty lines even an issue? With panty lines, at least people know that you are wearing underwear. Is that so wrong? Otherwise, does the mind wonder? Or wander, even? Who knows? I say to heck with society's fashion expectations and any subsequent judgments on your derriere. Be free with or without your panty lines! You're a grown-up. Go with what makes you more comfortable.
