Yes, this is another ranty post.
I was hanging up my lingerie to dry after being washed when my friend (male) made yet another comment about the outrageous amount of lingerie I own. This is not a new thing coming from him, he’s actually my ex boyfriend and he made many comments when we were living together about it every time we were out shopping and I was perusing the lingerie section (looking to see what was new and if there were any good deals).
I’ve asked him to stop making those comments before, but he is very outspoken and opinionated (gee, I wonder why he’s my ex).
This is so confusing to me. No matter how many times I try to explain to him (or like minded people) that buying articles of clothing like lingerie is ok (Even when you already have quite a few), they just don’t get it. To them, it’s just one frivolous purchase after another. Never mind the fact that I get $30 bras for $10-$15 because I look around when I have time and bargain shop.
I don’t criticize people for buying video games, movies, guilty pleasure food, etc. So why should I be criticized for buying more bras than someone (also, a man who admits to knowing nothing about women’s clothing) thinks I should? It would be different if they were concerned that I was overspending or racking up credit card debt, but I’m not. Thus the bargain shopping.
So please stop criticising me for buying items that I love to wear, love to look at, and just make me feel better about myself in general. I love lingerie. I love bras, panties, stockings, garter belts, corsets, robes, teddies, the whole nine yards. Looking at them makes me happy. Wearing beautiful ones make me ecstatic. I even see my own sometimes!
By the way, there are 16 pairs of panties hanging here and 9 bras. Also, I had seven bras when these annoying comments were made. I bought two more while waiting for a table for dinner! You can’t stop me! :)
PS. If you want to see pictures of my bras and hear where I got them, let me know!
