Greetings from Idaho. OK, what do we all wear under our stuffiy planner clothes? Briefs, boxers, panties, or thongs?

I wear briefs (Calvin Kleins) during the winter. But I let my junk hang free now that it's summer (and I've left the profession).

Since I'm the only planner with insomnia that is sick enough (or geeky enough) to hang here, I get to be the first chick to answer this one.

Sorry to say guys, but it's just bikinis here... no thongs to be seen. You'll have to wait for the G.R.I.T.S. or those D.C. metro planners to get the info on that ;)

I'm with PG (Hey, maybe that's a sign!) on this one.
I wear bikinis/boxers/nothing depending on when I last did my washing and who slept over :D

I'm throwing my lot in with Danie and Jo, I'm a big boxers fan - my husband has a whole drawer of tighties that I've never see him wear, but he insists on keeping them for the 2 times a month in the summer that we play tennis, and after just one disastrous hysterical laughing fit on my part, he now changes in the bathroom for tennis.

As for me, I think like most women we have a wide variety of underwear to fit the different occasions. I don't think there are many women who *love* to wear thongs, but when the outfit calls, you just have to.

Uh...interesting thread.

Boxers, sports-boxers, and some briefs. I go Commando at home or on the weekends if it's really hot out.

Thongs....that's all I ever wear.

No seriously...boxers. Does anyone wear tighty whities anymore?

Mike - my dad does. he's about 5'4", looks like a little bald freckled leprachuan and he sleeps in his tighties and will forget when his children are home visiting for the weekend and comes to breakfast in his underpants.

ah, danie, if you even knew the extent of it. His favorite bathing suit to don when my teenage friends would come over to swim was his electric blue speedo. and he's a furry little guy. god bless him. I'd direct you to his web page, but I'm afraid el guapo will email him and tattle on me. :)

Boxers, I used to have a specific model number that I liked with a snap fly. Don't you just hate it when junior makes a break for freedom when your walking down the street? What do you do?

Boxers - White Cotton

I like the ones with the one snap on the flap. It keeps him from looking around the room first thing in the morning. Kelly, your Dad and I have been in touch for sometime now. See you Christmas!

Eek! I cannot even imagine a world with El Guapo and my dad together - both are big gun afficionados, both are big pot stirrers. Unfortunately, my dad is a flaming liberal, so any meeting of the two would probably result in a Potato Cannon Duel (my dad's favorite homemade toy).

I don't know if I agree with this... I'm dating a guy that wears boxers, TW, and the long sports TW (what are these called?)... I think if someone has a kickin' bod, they can pull off the TW (I meant figuratively, but I suppose literally works too). If a guy has nice legs and a good bum, TWs can be quite attractive... look at all those Calvin Klein billboards.

Around here they're marketed as 'sport briefs' or boxer briefs'

I bet he forgets to cut his fingernails, too! :)

Dad -- gotta' love him -- has Fruit of the Looms that date back to the Eisenhower administration.

Every year, the 'rents buy me pajamas for Christmas. I never, ever wear them, instead wearing boxers or just going cowboy.

Boxer Briefs....my wife like's them, and they're not as loose as boxers so that I don't have the "breaks for freedom" that giff spoke of.

Wow NH - another thing we have in common!

My fiancee likes'em too. Actually she prefers TWs, but I find them a little too...constraining :)

i certainly prefer the boxer brief...the security of the tw with the look of the boxer...keeps the beans with the frank and vice versa...i can't believe i just said that...

and i am particular...only jockey will do, but FoTL isn't bad when laundry day isn't in the near future...

Ok, point to Nerudite. However, how many of us are dating or married to Calvin Klein models.

Note: although I think my husband is a stone cold hottie

True, Kelly... I'm not dating a Calvin Klein model either. But my BF is a stone cold hottie as well... and I kinda like him in TWs. At least he can get away with it. Maybe in a few years, now that he's eating home cooking, I'll change my mind ;)

Nothing.

Why waste good money buying underwear? If you, erm... shave, even the jeans with zippers aren't a problem.

Or was that too much information?

ah ha

Kel, I'd have to agree, you gotta wear what fits the outfit. I could rattle off the types, but I'd sound like Bubba from Forrest Gump.. See, you got your lacies, cotton, silk, PVC, ones with strngs, ones without strings...

But for the men, please.. keep Vinny and the Hitmen under control. And if they have holes, please throw them out. Now that i'm actually living with the BF, I find I have to throw them out secretly if I do the wash and replace them with the ones I like (the boxer briefs). So far, I think I've gotten away with it-

Sheesh... I'd just tack them up on my headboard. None of the girls here would mind. In fact, they might like them, too!

That is what your bicycle helmet is for when you are off the bike, or just coast for a second.

I'm a 99.9% TW guy. The only time I don't were them is when I am wearing tailored clothing (lines) or on a date were I know the girl prefers boxers.

Being new to this game, obviously I'm jumping in a bit late on the action! To answer the original question -- thongs without a doubt. During the hot south FL summer....no one has to know what's under there -- I gotta BREATHE!
Let's talk pantyhose -- an evil plot designed by men. Girls, definitely do the thigh-hi's. Not only sexy but most comfy.

blargh. panty hose. makes me really miss my job where i wore jeans every day. but in the summer, the hose only gets brought out for meetings. otherwise i boldly break the dress code and wear my nine west sandals. take that, fascist dress code nazis!

as for thigh highs, the jury's still out. i think the panty hose depends on the situation - sometimes you just need that extra little security that control top provides.

Hmmm...I never thought of that before. Maybe I should get a new username before the rumours start flying. Just for your info,

NO! I'm not that kind of tranplanner

not that there's anything wrong with that...

Sport briefs. But made from micro-fiber.

Light. Comfortable. Snug, but moves with you. An outstanding breakthrough in the fiber market.

I don't think I'll be posting a picture after that response...
