This may or may not actually be Step 2 of Foundational Issues, as the more I think about it, it should probably be Step 1! But, similar to investing in a few good bras, all the more reason to invest in a few other unmentionables wouldn't you say? I think sometimes we switch around the priorities of what should and shouldn't cost us a little extra. We get so excited about that slinky wrap dress, and forget to wear the right undergarments. By all means, wear the dress...the pants, the skirt, but be aware of what's um...behind you.
I personally discovered the wonders of boy-shorts years ago and found that with my choice of clothing, I needed a variety of them to ensure I did not have to resort to any other options, showing the world the dreaded VPL (and in case you haven't gotten that yet...that would be the Visible Panty Line).
those that actually cover your tush, and not seaming that rides up 'mid-cheek' (remember Baywatch lifeguards? I never understood how anyone could be comfortable in such a shape bathing suit or bikini bottom...ever!)
It all seems a lot to be happening under there (under-wear? under there!), but it's all worth it to walk around appropriately and confidently in the body that YOU are presenting to the world each day. The power is pretty much in our hands to not give people a reason to look away. They should be looking right at us, admiring, taking cues, wondering "Amazing...how does she look this good?!"
