Granny Panties!


Guess who’s bringing the granny panty back in vogue?

(buying via the affiliate links may result in Marcy and Penelope Kitten getting more treats)


Cynthia:  Millennial Girls are bringing back the granny panty,  Marcy!

Marcy:  Bringing them back? They’ve been on your butt ever since I’ve known you.

Cynthia:  Yes, but now they are considered trendy… and even a little… sexy.

Marcy:  Yeah right. In your dreams. Did you ask Freddy about that?

Cynthia:  As a matter of fact, I did.

Marcy:  And?

Cynthia:  Well, I had to explain that the trend is more of a full bottom look and not what one would consider a true granny panty.

Marcy:  And? Did he buy it?

Cynthia:  No.

Marcy:  Yeah. Guys like thongs and string bikinis.

Cynthia (suddenly angry):  Yeah? Well, so what! Who finally cares?!

Thongs are uncomfortable. And horrible. And they make me grumpy. And I have had the fashion elite and that nebulous thing called culture telling me since 1985 that thongs are in and I am a complete nerd if I don’t wear the nasty things and now Millennial Girls are saying that granny panties are “in” because they are smart and don’t buy into you have to look like a stripper under your clothes and be uncomfortable to feel sexy!

Cynthia pauses to catch her breath.

Cynthia:  I am much happier in granny panties.

Marcy:  And friendlier.

Cynthia:  Exactly. What do you think, Penelope?

penelope kitten:  totes TMI.



*Granny Panties Galore!

    Yay granny panties!!! I’ve always thought they were cute and of course you can’t beat the comfort. As I told a young lady a few years ago in defense of GPs, it’s confidence that’s sexy. If you’re confident the partner you’re after won’t care what type of underwear you’re wearing.

    I think the granny panties are meant to be a birth control option, but as a marginalized sexagenarian I’m always thrilled when the habits of my people become mainstream.

      Well – blue hair is now in style too! Those young’uns!

    Is that your ballet butt???
    Lookin’ fine, my friend…

    I’m a boyshorts kinda gal, myself, but for the same reason – COMFORT.
    (I’m so short waisted that the granny panties come up too high to feel good.)

    I think you just get to a point in life where it’s no longer cool or interesting to do the whole “beauty is pain” thing. Which is WAY sexier than the “put on” version, ya know? 🙂

    Also: cute strawberry panties!

    Wow, Cynthia! Your picture taking has really….changed. LOL At first I thought that was you and I was thinking “wow…she’s got guts!” Very funny 🙂 I’m a boy-shorts-girl and def prefer them to thongs.

      Boy shorts are awesome too! I wear those as well.
      So now I am definitely going back to make my disclaimer bigger. I WISH I had that butt. I bet it’s photoshopped though.

    Never realized that GPs ever went out of style. Floss is for teeth.

    And yep, I too was wondering about the pic, before I saw the disclaimer!

      At this point I want to pretend that perfect bum is mine! hee hee hee.

    I had to laugh when I saw this post’s title and the photo. Awesome!

    I guess I am the lone thong wearer in the group though…. *slinks away*

      LOL!!! Anyway – I am hoping that the moral of the story is – “to each her own”!!

    Haha! I usually wear hipster panties, and maybe they’re considered granny panties, too, but I don’t care. Recently I bought a pair of high-waisted panties, and I actually really like them! I wear my skirts high on my waist, and I recently discovered the magic of high-waisted jeans, so I’m guess I’m going high-waisted all the way now! I wore thongs all through high school for the same reasons you listed. Now I have one thong that I wear with my sheerest skirts, and I do so begrudgingly.

      Oh I so agree – high waisted jeans are magical. And a skirt that sits at the waist is super cute too. Those are my faves – I just feel so girly in them!

    Could it be the Mother Ship has arrived and I have found my people, that I no longer must walk alone is silence admiring and enjoying my high waisted jeans, that one must not feel part of the Moms jeans horror set, actually are seen as dare I say…stylish?!?! I come forth from the shadows, no longer pulling shirts over the waist of my jeans with shame– I have found my people!!
