Panties. There’s something that’s just not quite right about that word. Maybe it’s that I want to announce it out loud in a robust Scottish accent (parrrnnteees), or that it reminds me of a Bridget Jones-esque big, beige control pant(y), or maybe the term is just a little shudder-inducing.
Australians are all mad for a good knicker-euphamism. Bloomers, briefs, spinnakers, scungies, thongs, floss, Granny pants, grundies, fundies, undies, daks. Might just stick to the good old ‘knickers’ and ‘thongs’ for now.
Although, if panties are as gorgeous as these ones, we’d call them that too!
