Today, in this video, I want to dive into the topic of undies.
I have a challenge for you at the end of this episode so stick around until the end.
Underwear, lingerie , bras, panties – knickers if you are across the pond.
First off I am going to be referencing bras and panties. But this concept includes all lingerie, slips, camisoles, body suites, garter belts- all intimate apparel.- the lot.
There are bras and panties that come in all
fabrics- silk. polyester, cotton
They can come at all price points.
First, let me speak about the,,,
There are bras with what we would call the normal straps and fits PICTURE and then there are those that adjust to the outer clothing that you are wearing.
There are bras that have that underwire piece that lifts and supports you in that quite frankly can be quite annoying.
Then There are panties that come in all shapes and sizes including :
High rise briefs
Cheeks types and for the brave things… although to me they are also very uncomfortable.
Undies come in all
For me this is a range of colors. As you know. In my SImple Life there are a limited number of items but in terms of colors this includes, black, white,neutral and I go against my trend with red, and neutral. Oh and yes a blue sports bra.
Here is where , in my opinion, this all gets interesting.
You can go to a big box store and purchase bags of undies in cotton and cotton blends. IMAGES. Buy 3 get one free, buy one get one free….
And then there is the satins, silks, the laces and other finery.
WIth the cotton and cotton blend you can typically wash in a machine.
With the finer pieces you can still wash in a machine on a gentle cycle – I USE THIS. or you can wash by hand. It is a toss up with me.
Underwear has many roles, in most cases to keep our bits and pieces in check. They also keep you clean and tidy.
The challenge I offer you comes in two parts:
How much do you really need?
You can only wear one pair of undies and one bra at a time.
How many colors do you really need?
How many styles?
Go through and get rid of those items that do not fit, you have not worn in a while, those that are worn, those that you do not like.
Get rid of your granny pants and bras
Take a new perspective. on your inner wardrobe.
We tend to think that our outer clothing is what really matters- you know, how you present yourself to the world..
How would you feel wearing something more feminine? Something that would make you feel “appealing “ and I am not saying to someone else but to yourself.
But I challenge you to take a new perspective and start looking at your undies. Start wearing
the items that make you feel good, make you feel filled with confidence. As I have tried to
impress on you – in order to live a Simple Life you should surround yourself with the things that you love… and that starts my friend with what you put on under your uniform, your underwear.
How do you lead a Simple Life when all around you is physically in chaos?
Many of us have been living in our current homes for a while. Perhaps you have downsized to a smaller home. In both cases, you might find that your home needs updating, a “few renovations”… some tweaking.
So the question is how do you live with a mess in the interim when all around you is upside down, so to speak.
When the kitchen is in the living room
When the living room has a toilet in it.
When there is plastic sheeting on your dining room walls.
In this video I have a few suggestions for you, ways to cope and get through the mess. MEMO TO SELF
