I am so happy to be having this conversation regarding panties! I've been wondering how soon I'll be able to start putting pressure over my stoma...it'll be two weeks on Friday since my surgery and though I'm pretty sore the swelling that gone way down. I no longer look five months pregnant...just 3 1/2 maybe 4. : )
I've been thinking about what panties would work the best...as once my bootie back down to normal size I have about size, shape and form of panties...in fact, my mom and husband have been going through baskets of clothes in our basement (when I was pregnant and moving out of my every day clothes and into the big, stretchy and maternity clothes, I just threw things than no longer fit into baskets, shed my tears, and put them aside. : ) So, I became super excited to see all my beautiful under garmets that I have long since forgotten!!! Most of which I purchased pre and post wedding...so lots of fun silky lacy things!
As for the bras...I am jealous about the C, D, and DD cups. Boo-hoo!!! I used to be a full C and trickled into some D's, but I nursed my son and alas...the Bs are new my home. I'm looking forward to losing my weight and going to VS and getting sized and splurge on some super cute and comfy bras! Not to mention some nighties that are flattering to my permanent accessory. : )
Anyway, I do enjoy this chat!
