Why is it that we find underwear lines through pants so offensive?
I mean, sure, through the pants we are able to see the booty fit of their underwear (full coverage, boyshort, hipster, bikini, etc). And underwear! Heaven forbid we should even be reminded it is there.
The slightest hint of its appearance causes us to judge the most normal of people, we think “don’t they care?! Have they no respect for their dignity? Why can’t they be gracious for that sake of humanity?!!”. Okay, so that’s probably not exactly what goes through people’s minds when they see panty lines.
Granted, I hate it if my underwear even alters the shape of my butt through, my pants, even if the lines themselves aren’t visible. Is it an aesthetic thing or am I concerned that I’m insulting the fashionable world?
The whole panty line dilemma must be a somewhat recent happenstance. Before women wore big ruffly bloomers underneath infinite amounts of fabric, large skirts, metal, and mesh.
And what about men, some men out there wear “whitey-tighties” (unfortunately). We never see their underwear .
And for the record yes, this was prompted by a specific person who I ordinarily wouldn’t have mentioned, but boy did that panty line throw me a curve ball!. A curve ball of inspiration that is.
But going back to my time line. The thong’s only purpose was to prevent said panty line, no? Beyond that they’re completely impractical excepting of course their potential ability to build a lady’s confidence/sexiness. So perhaps if I research the beginning of the thong’s development (which must have originated from a convenient wedgie) then I can find out when panty lines really became problematic.
