How do women wear clothes without wearing underwear? (Adult, maybe)

AjidahkAjidahk Posts: 1,212Registered Users
Lately, I've been hearing that a lot of women go out without wearing underwear under their clothes. I was just wondering, how do women do that? I would imagine that it would be uncomfortable to wear jeans without underwear. Also, what do they do when they get their period?

    I have no clue how they do it. Even when not having a period, I'm a daily panty-liner addict. I like my clothing to stay dry.

    Tampons for periods.

    Doesn't the friction of jeans cause chafting?

    I never wear underwear with my jeans. :dontknow:
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    ive gone commando a before and its only when wearing (at least knee length) dresses or skirts.
    wearing pants with no undies seems uncomfortable and icky.

    I couldn't do it on my period even with super plus tampons for the first couple of days.

    I'm too jiggly to go out commando..alla this flapping around would get on my nerves..

    I remember there being a thread about this a year or so ago. I think it made an interesting turn. LOL! But anyway, they have inserts you can place inside of jeans to prevent chaffing and whatnot. And no...I don't go commando, unless I'm in the house(mostly when sleep). Never outside with regular clothes(or during my monthly).

    LiveGoldin-

    Your drawers are that tight that they keep stuff from jiggling?

    Edit: on the jean inserts for going commando, I saw them on the Today show. And the stuff sticks to itself worse than Saran wrap. KLG made a comment that it would be real bad to wear one and have it get stuck somewhere unless you're "clean as a whistle."

    I was like what's being clean got to do with it? Then I figured out "clean" was a euphemism for "hairless."

    Hee.

    If I went commando with pants, I could only wear them once. I like the idea of commando with skirts, but I would be too self-conscious.

    What are the benefits to going commando? Besides not having a thong riding high and pants riding low.

    No VPL and for some comfort. I think it also makes some women feel sexy.

    Doesn't daily vaginal discharge become an issue? If you wore pants without undies, wouldn't you have to wash them after one use?

    Wouldn't you normally wash most pants after one use?

    I wear most pants, especially jeans, a few times before I wash them. However, aside from my underwear I generally will check the "cleanliness factor" of something before I decide to wash it--I find I can wear most pants, sweaters, dresses, and skirts more than once, but everthing else I need to wash every time. I guess it can be a bit different in the summer and things need more washing.

    Yeah, the sniff test is my method.

    Same. To me, something isn't necessarily "dirty" just because I've worn it once. Though the day's shirt and underwear are all thrown into the hamper promptly.

    To OP: Hmm, I don't know much about the usual logistics but I can't imagine commando + period ever working out.
  • AjidahkAjidahk Posts: 1,212Registered Users
    Yea, I wear pants quite a few times before I wash them. I had no clue there were people out there who washed their jeans after wearing them once. Lol

    Jeans, not usually. But other pants I might wear only once before washing.

    Before I had kids, I would wear my jeans 2-3 times before washing, but in the past 10 years, I don't think a day has gone by that some form of crap has not magically appeared somewhere on my jeans. So I'm an "every wearing" washer.

    Doesn't that just trap moisture to your skin? I can't stand wearing pads during my period (bulky, moist) and the thought of using panty liners every day....*shivers* Not to mention the certainty I'd end up with a yeast infection every other week. But I guess my flow is light enough for tampons only, and I don't seem to leak is much as the rest of y'all do during the rest of the month?

    All that said, staying dry is the main reason I frequently go commando -- and always so in jammies, lounge, yoga and other workout clothes. Air flows and wetness evaporates much better. Just feels fresher.

    I sometimes go commando in longer skirts to eliminate VPL. I always laugh at people who say they wear thongs for that reason, because you just end up with a thong VPL. And it's not like a string up your butt is going to cover any more than no undies at all would.

    Jeans and work pants go with underwear though. Always cotton. Better than synthetic material for airflow.

    Pants are either too tight or too thin if a thong leaves a line. The vision of thong wedgies is a very uncomfortable one. They're too small if they go up the crack (Yes, RCW, I know your cheek issues ). Just go up a size than what you'd wear in grannies or buy some sports thongs. They sit well because they're better cut to allow movement. Not advocating thongs for everyone but that's what works for me.

    I have some ladies jockeys that I wear under a skirt. I can't stand the way grannies or bikini ride up to give me a wedgie and wouldn't want to wear a thong and risk too much exposure. I carry my excess weight in my thigh/butt area and grannies/bikinis never cover it fully and I end up hanging out and look like I have four cheeks. lol. No matter the brand or style.

    I only go knickerless when I'm in bed.

    I just hope people who go commando at least wear knickers when trying on pants!

    I've been known (well, not known, I don't tell!) to go pantiless to eliminate VPL, but never in jeans-painful-or a skirt. And to answer curlylaura's question, I ALWAYS wear underwear if I'm going clothes shopping. If I wear panties when I try on a bathing suit, I'm going to to try on pants, too.

    No, the pantyliners absorb moisture that would otherwise be on my skin causing chafing. It wasn't so much a problem in my youth, but after I hit my 30's, I found that I'm much too...um moist...to be going without panties or liners. My pants would just be wet all the time. Yuck.

    In the summer, probably yes due to sweating. In the winter, no because no sweating or excessive skin oil.
