The Panty Pyramid
Not all panties are created equal, and panties, like many other elements of the world, have a natural life cycle. As wearers of panties, it is our responsibility to organize our panties in the most advantageous fashion possible.
As this diagram demonstrates, all panty drawers have a natural hierarchy. In order to truly understand the way of the panties, one should learn the intricate ways in which they relate to each other, and to us, their human masters. The panty pyramid is a simple way of beginning to understand, and is the first step along the path to the 'way of the panty'.
You bought these and didn't wear them for a while, so they became 'special panties'. You're just waiting for a suitable occasion to wear them. If they've been there for more than six months, its time to break those babies in regardless! Most new and unworn panties become 'pretty panties' very quickly, or else are discarded for being too imaginably uncomfortable to stand wearing for even a short period of time
The pretty panties category refers to items of lingerie that have been worn, but only very rarely. These are the items of lingerie with the power to turn you into a seductive beast just by slipping them on. Every lingerie aficionado should have several items of lingerie like this.
Favorites are every day wear, the ones that you'll pick first if given the choice. They may not be the sexiest items of lingerie, but they make you feel good. Favorite panties tend to fit well, be flattering to your figure, and though you might not pick them out for a sexy date, you wouldn't die if you were caught with them on.
These are the comfy panties, the ones your mother bought for you, or the ones you bought when you were feeling particularly bland. These are the ones you reach for on workdays, when you know there is no chance that anyone will see what you're wearing underneath the bland workaday clothing you're forced to climb into before commencing your daily toil.
Oldies are ex favorites which have begun to lose their charms. Loose elastic, worn patches, discoloration in key areas are all factors which can turn a favorite pair of panties into 'oldies'. Only favorite panties or pretty panties will turn into oldies, as the 'here nor there' panties are thrown out when they become a little damaged. Oldies tend to have fond memories associated with them, and will often remain lurking in panty drawers for years after they have lost all practical application.
