How Women Pick Their Panties
I thought it might be of interest to the male panty wearing crowd to get an insight as to how women pick their panties, and for women to perhaps find some inspiration in future panty purchases. Most women have three types of panties in their panty drawer, though there may be a crossover between the types and it is quite common for panties to transition from one category to another over the course of their life times.
These are the panties we choose when we have something or someone special in mind. They are likely to be colorful, ornate and sometimes a little bit naughty. How many pairs of naughty panties a woman has will vary wildly from woman to woman depending on her interest in fashion and her budget, but almost every woman will own at least one pair of panties that make her feel sexy. Oftentimes these will come with a matching bra, which will almost always be worn when the panties are.
These are the panties which we wear to work, school, sports etcetera. They're pretty tidy panties we wouldn't mind being seen in and they're the panties that most men will see their wives and girlfriends wearing, except if it is some kind of special occasion. These panties may or may not come with a matching bra and every now and again, yes, we'll wear a clearly non matching bra.
Granny panties are a lot like sexy panties, in that the number of this panty type will vary greatly from woman to woman. These are panties we would be horrified to be seen in, but which are usually very comfortable and suitable for 'that time of the month.' Granny panties may be actual granny panties (full brief, high waist,) or they can be more subtle, perhaps an older bikini cut panty in black. Granny panties are often retired comfortable panties, but are very rarely retired sexy panties. Once sexy panties outlive their usefulness they are generally discarded as they're not a woman's first choice in terms of comfort.
The Panty Lesson
The difference between men, who buy panties purely for the aesthetics and feeling of the material and women for whom panties are essential, is that men have no need for Granny panties, and many men only keep what we'd call 'sexy' panties around. Is it any wonder then, that men tend to love and appreciate their panties more than women do?
Women, depending on their existing perspective on lingerie, could take a leaf out of a lingerie loving man's book when it comes to choosing panties and perhaps pick out a few more sexy panties next time they're shopping for lingerie. If you only have one or two pairs of sexy panties, it is easy to get stuck in a rut and forget how good nice lingerie can make you feel. Think of it this way, if panties are capable of making some men feel feminine, then imagine what they can do for a woman's sense of femininity.
Just because a woman is a woman, it doesn't mean that she feels ultra feminine all the time. Pretty lingerie is a nice way to remind yourself of just how lovely and feminine you can be, whether you're male or female.
