Bloomers for Women

Updated on September 5, 2014

Bloomer Panties!

There are many reasons to love bloomers for women! These old-fashioned underpants can be either sexy or modest, even both at the same time!

In the bedroom, women's bloomers send a confusing mixed message that many men just cannot resist. They are straightlaced and virginal while also seeming wanton and risque.

Some women still wear them for modesty. An active woman can slip a pair under a skirt without worrying about showing more than she wishes. The longer underpants can also be worn for extra warmth during cold weather.

Then there are the gals who have taken the bloomer out of the boudoir and onto the streets! Often they are worn as a beach cover-up or for workout wear. Still other ladies have turned them into dressier attire by pairing them with leggings or tights and heels.

As you see, this garment no longer merely part of an old-fashioned costume! Many women who have tried bloomers say that once you have a pair you will wonder how you ever got along without them. It is such a versatile undergarment, you are sure to find many uses for them!

There are so many different styles of bloomers these days, you are certain to find what you need!

      Actually we used to wear them under our square dance skirts with lots of lacy petticoats. We dance in competitions for 4-H.

      I've never worn bloomers. My Mom did though as a child back in the 1920s.

      I have gone full circle. Bloomers were normal when I was a girl growing up and when I got married. I changed to the more 'modern' brief underwear but I still had an affection for the 'old-fashioned' underwear and eventually reverted to wearing bloomers. I do not feel self-conscious about it and hang them on the washing line and don't mind who sees them.
