A new study revealed that women now own an average of thirty-four pairs of underwear. Perhaps the Fifty Shades of Grey craze explains why the number is three times what it was in 1999, when the average was just 12 pairs.
The figure has increased because of a large desire for “special occasion undies.”
According to a poll of 200 women for Dr. Beckmann (Glo White), a woman’s typical underwear drawer contains 20 everyday pairs and 14 for the “best.”
56 percent of women said that they have separate underwear collections for special occasions and for everyday comfort.
61 percent of special occasion underwear retailers admitted that the Fifty Shades craze has made them more likely to purchase “special occasion underwear.”
I have a lot of panties though I have not worn panties regularly in a very long time. I would have at least 34 pairs, many more in fact. Nothing to do with shades of grey...I just loved panties.
My main problem was highlighted when visiting the doctor for a skin cancer examination the other week. I couldn't find a thing to wear! I was to be examined, top to toe, front to back and everywhere in between for the possibility of skin cancers. I text Sir for permission to wear panties as I was going to the doctor I revealed. He sent His permission almost immediately, not letting me sweat too much. Then the real task began. To find a pair of panties which was not see through was my dilemma. Anything that was not see through in the front, had no arse in the back! I began to panic as I made mental notes to purchase a pair of reasonably 'decent' panties which I could wear to such occassions in the future.
I eventually found pair. They were still filmy and see-through but the pattern on them was so busy and dark that I was sure he couldn't see what lay beneath!
