I have this theory that when I talk about underwear I get more readers that day. We’ll see. And I am going to talk about underwear again today. My secret underwear. Since October I have been secretly wearing a certain type of underwear:
I don’t have a pair of women’s thermals and I desperately wanted to wear layers when we went to Boston in October. And since I’m hopelessly cheap frugal I stole them from Du. What is it with me and men’s underwear? I couldn’t believe how much of a difference they made. I was actually not freezing while walking around Boston all day every day in the freezing wind and driving rain. You think I’m exaggerating. I was hooked.
Ever since then, if the temps dip below 50 I’ve got these babies on under my jeans. Skinny jeans that have a low rise. If you can see that dude’s waist up there you’ll see that the thermals rise pretty high. And look at all of that…extra fabric. So now I’ve got a thermal muffin top that billows out above my jeans. It’s like a whole pack of muffin tops.
I’ve also become a fan of wearing really long tops. I’m layering the northern end too for warmth so usually my undertank is long enough to cover the thermal muffin. I can feel the muffin though and it makes me constantly readjust my shirts, pulling up the muffin and pulling down my three or four tops.
Every once in a while I think about getting proper ladies’ thermals. But would they be as warm? There definitely wouldn’t be as much fabric. Also, much less adjusting of my package…pack of muffins. Maybe I’ll try my hand at alterations and try to shorten the fabric and extract the manhole.
