The Vine: May 18, 2012
Over the years I've seen the Vine readers come through for many people on hard-to-find or discontinued items, so I'm hoping they can help me. Basically, I need new underwear!
For years I was a bikini-underwear girl, but once I started working in the professional world and began wearing dress pants and skirts, I didn't like the visible panty lines they gave me. I then discovered Hanes women's boxer briefs, which were really, really comfortable and didn't give visible panty lines or wedgies. Of course, over the last year or so they phased them out, and now don't seem to make them at all. Bummer (don't even get me started on my favorite things being discontinued!). So now I have a drawerful of boxer briefs that have seen better days, and I'm getting desperate.
I've tried several other styles of underwear, but they all feel really strange on me, give horrible panty lines and the dreaded wedgie. I figured "boy shorts" would be a close match, but those seem to be the worst fit. I'm a normal-sized woman with a normal-sized butt, so I don't have any issues there. I prefer all-cotton undies, or maybe cotton with a touch of spandex/lycra, but not much. Hopefully yonder Vine folk can assist.
