I feel conflicted about linking you to this product, the Nylon Spandex Stretch, Floral Lace High-Waist Brief, because it is by American Apparel.
Is it wrong for me to use this image (the only one I could find that wasn't entirely sleazy) from AA's site, without doing so? I mean, I am accrediting the brand with this new product, a very flattering, retro style of panties - perfect for underneath tight skirts because the seam line runs beneath the curve of your butt. I'm happy to tell you that it's incredibly reasonably priced at $17.00 CDN. I've seen undies like this that cost $80.00. There is no skimpage on fabric peeps. I know how much lingerie fabric costs so I'm amazed by the price point. (Please, don't say anything that may force me to think to0 hard about how this can be.)
I bought a large, without even trying them on*, because I know how small everything runs in that place. They fit perfectly. Dare I suggest they are a lot more flattering on me than on the model from the website (not the one in the photo above - the drugged out looking one I will not link to).
The item comes in 6 colours - the lilac (or dusk) shade being particularly lovely. I'm on a black kick right now - and I don't buy panties that won't match a bra - so that colour isn't for me.
Anyone tried these? Whatcha think?
* I'm in and out of that place - and very infrequently. AA does stock a variety of cotton thong in beige that is a wardrobe staple though. I've tried to find an alternative but there's nothing quite like it, and sure as hell not for 12 bucks. Can't wait to figure out how to draft my own version.
