I Wore Granny Panties For Two Weeks & This Is What Happened
The opening line reads, "A young generation of women is discovering a new brand of sexy in the most unlikely of places: their grandmothers' underwear drawers. Still, more and more independent brands are serving up silhouettes that provide high, full-coverage waistlines and no-nonsense fabrications.

That's super sexy. Underneath it all, your underpinnings are a personal choice—serving your specific predilections and preferences or determined by what you happen to be wearing over them that day.

Move over, thongs: Granny panties are back in fashion
I was in high school when thongs officially became a national obsession. Thongs had always been a thing, of course. People definitely wore them, but they were not the kind of thing you could buy at the local mall. Britney and X-tina wore them onstage or on the red carpet.
But when I wore granny panties for two whole weeks, my analysis was actually quite different. Switching my boy shorts and thongs for roomier, high-waisted granny knickers certainly required an adjustment in my mentality. But all in all, the experiment gave me more appreciation for the classic undergarment silhouette.
