The behind status...

Today, I would like to address a very sensitive issue in dressing and that is panty lines. Here is the problem....They look bad. But more than that; they actually look really, really bad and they do a disfavor to your bum-bum. The person in this picture actually has a very cute body shape and a very cute bum-bum, but with the underwear that she is wearing it looks like she has what I call "the 4 butt cheeks". This look is not flattering on anybody and can ruin the look of any outfit. You don't want to pinch, pull or emphasize any area of your butt. The butt area should always be smooth.

The solution to "the 4 butt cheeks"
1. The thong- It comes through the middle and has full coverage in the front. But be very careful with the thong because I myself was wearing a too tight thong once upon a time, convinced that my bottom was a smaller size but all I was doing was actually showing bulge all around the edge of the thong. It wasn't until a sales lady at Victoria's Secret insisted that there was no more of my size that I had to buy a bigger size. I didn't think she was telling the truth, but I left it alone. Maybe because part of me knew that she was right. It was only then that I understood the difference the correct size of a thong made...and that was on accident.

2. The Boy Shorts- I love this type of underwear. I mostly love the boy shorts from the Pink Collection @ Victoria's Secret. They are girly, innocent and sexy, and just perfect for me. They provide full coverage and create no lines. It's the best of both worlds. I use them with jeans and work slacks and they are comfortable with both. I bought one pair of boy shorts at The Gap and they would ride up every time I pulled up my jeans and then I had to adjust them. I gave those up quickly becuase I thought they were too much trouble.

I hope I have created awareness to a common problem.
Also, If you have any other solutions, please feel free to share...

I super duper agree!!! Really hate VPLs... I wear Marks & Spencer low waist boy shorts and I am comfortable with it.

Not only does a too tight thong create bulges in certain areas, IT'S EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE!! OMG is it ever! Learned that when I put on a little too much weight.
