Just wondering?

I'm a C.
Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.

    I have to admit I have to match! I'm anal about this, I worry about being in another car wreck and want to look cute if I do!

    I have one matching set. It's seems pointless for me as everyday wear because I wear bras multiple times before washing but undies only once. My sets would get mismatched very quickly!

    The only time eveything matched was when it was all plain white cotton. I don't have the energy to worry about it. :D

    In anticipating a breast reduction, one of the things I looked forward to the most was matching bras and panties. I realized that was not practical, but at least now the colors can match (since industrial size bras don't come cute or in a wide variety of colors).

    nope, it's near impossible for me. it's hard enough for me to find a bra that fits me, but to find underwear to match, it's never happened.

    i wear the same brand/style # bra everyday and the same brand/style # of underwear everyday. but none of it matches :)

    oops.. just remembered i have one matching set. my bf got it for me a valentines day. the bra doesn't support well enough to wear in public, so i don't ever wear it out. but i do have one set, that he ordered online.

    I'm single, so I really really don't care if it matches because no one is gonna see it....but when I get married, my vote might change. However, I don't know if I will find cute bras that support me, so my situation might be like goldylocks.

    Finding a bra alone that fits me right and doesn't dig in and supports is hard enough, finding matching panties would exhaust me! :lol:

    I wore matching underfrillies when I was single. It's something I do for me. Now that I'm married, it's a bonus for my husband.

    Actually, it's not. He couldn't care less what kind of underfrillies I have on - he's more interested in getting me OUT of them. :D

    I only wear matched sets on special occasions. I like to wear cotton panties, but cotton bras generally don't offer me enough support or come in the right styles or sizes.
    I worry more about the underthings not showing under clothes. So if I wear light pants and a balck shirt, I'll wear a black bra and light panties.

    when i was thin and beautiful, one of my favourite things to do was buy lingerie - and i usually bought matching sets. i almost always wear black skirts and pants anyway, so the colour underneath doesn't matter.

    i always wear skin tone with white tops, however!

    now that i'm fat, there's very little that's pretty in my size. so everything is basic beige.... :(

    I match unless I'm working out. Speaking of lingerie, I love the new Pink line by VS.

    I try to match color and texture usually, but I'm too poor to be really anal about matching sets. I have a few nice matching sets that I reserve for special occasions though. :P

    PH--The word underfrillies totally cracks me up. I like that much better than the word panties.

    Me too. Is it short for pantalettes, maybe? Whatever, it's an outdated word. Underfrillies is much more my style. ;)

    Special occasions only. My situation is like goldylocks... finding matching sets in my size is rare. I mostly wear sports bras to get enough support, and finding one of those in my size that's something other than white or black is a thrill in itself.
  • Confused CurlyConfused Curly Posts: 229Registered Users
    I'll admit to being lazy and cheap. I also have the support problem. Now that I'm fat I'm a 38 D or even a 38 D.5!

    Actually, I'm more cheap than lazy. While I can bring myself to spend $30 or even $40 on a pretty bra, I cannot bring myself to spend $16 on the matching undies. TMI alert - what if Aunt Flo visits early and ruins them! :shock: I solve this problem by limiting myself to white, nude and black and buying color coordinating panties at Express or even Wal Mart They have new "fancy" nylon Hanes biknis at 2 for $6!!! I'm currently testing them. If they last a reasonable amount of time I'm stocking up.

    As for the problem with wearing a bra several; days per week while wearing the undies only once a week (obviously!), the practical - yet expensive solution is to buy one bra and several pairs of matching panties. That way you can wear the fuschia lace set 3 times/week. :lol:

    Mine don't always match, but they do most of the time. I also wear my bras a couple of times before washing, so I try to buy two or three matching panties. If the panties are 16 bucks, I go elsewhere and buy cheaper panties that match as closely as possible.

    *Plan* on matching, especially after just buying a cute set, but don't follow through.

    Isn't panties short for pantaloons? Underfrillies is a better word.

    Anyway to answer the question/poll, matching sets on special occasions.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
