The same thing men want: comfort, durability, and stain resistance.

Can this become a women out of their underwear thread?

You mean which women.

Having not RTFA I can only comment that within minutes of getting home my wife takes her bra off - so I would like to add this critical piece of anecdotal evidence to this highly relevant scientific study.

Cortez the Killer: Can this become a women out of their underwear thread?


I would be amused to see what Farkers can come up with that fits the topic without being NSFW.

Pornomancers, do your thing!

On the one hand, wife has always preferred bland, mom-style, old-lady undergarments even prior to becoming a mom. On the other hand, what goes in those undergarments has always been exceptional, even after becoming a mom, so glass has to be more than half full. I guess you can't have everything.

Your fellow scientists request that you submit evidence of this curious phenomenon so we can review its validity. And we mean the entire data set.

Yes, on the other hand there's a lot of flabby floppy hairy lumpy asses in the most sexy lacy thongs out there. Mostly half visible out of too small sweat pants at fine retail shopping locations.

Okay, I kinda don't want lunch now.

At sexy-time: Whatever he finds most appealing. It's going to come off anyway, don't care. (Note: this applied back in an earlier era)

At all other times (in order of importance): Comfortable. Not visible. Cheap. Readily available. Bonus if also cute but gave that requirement up to meet other, more important requirements.

Special note on bras: The person who designs a bra style that is actually comfortable and supportive will easily become the richest, most admired person of all time.

Second special note on bras: Anyone posting that women don't know their own bra size can eabod and diaf. I challenge that person to take any bra of any alleged, highly subjective dimensions and then compare it to other bras of the "same" alleged dimensions and then you can weep with the rest of us.

Several can be labelled the exact same size and one has straps that are too short and won't go longer, one was built for cone banana boobs, another thinks boobs should be far apart and in your armpits, another one thinks boobs should be squashed. etc.

so what you are saying is that jeans made to fit the curves of Kim Kardashian may not fit well on gwennth paltrow?  I agree that boobs come in all wonderous forms, sizes and shapes, but each bra manufacturer can only make so many models I would imagine.  Maybe a study should be done to define the shapes of boobs, then engineer bras for those shapes and have a more defined sizing metric.  Instead of 36C you now have 36C-banana, 34B-wide eyes, etc.

any bored engineers want to help me write up the grant application for this 'research'?

Had this discussion on FARK before, but what I truly do not get (but do not mind, as a guy) are women who work in the financial district / office drone jobs who you KNOW (due to thin pants etc.) are wearing thongs, g-string underwear etc.

Seriously, for your work-a-day job (assuming you are not a prostitute or a stripper), why would women wear something that clearly would give you an all-day wedgie?

Can I rescind my book marky-mark? This thread blows.
 
2014-02-14 03:08:59 PM
nope. do not want.

underwear is horrible stuff.

I wear a bra when I teach a class where there might be someone under the age of 20.

Other than that, NOPE.

some women like the feel of them and I imagine having a string as a wedgie may be better than when a pair of panties bunch up and give you a wedgie.  less cloth in there may be preferred.

Gotten out of any low cars while you're wearing a short skirt lately?

It's nice to go without underwear and no one is aware that you're doing so.

Hooray for bulky sweaters.

a) They like to feel sexy
b) They know you can see, they're attention whores
c) They like anal, and a wedgie is like foreplay
d) All of the above
e) None of the above
