An anonymous admission:
I want underwire. I want velvet. I want cute frills. I want to look like a
C-cup. Yeah, like I’m ever going to go *there*
Velvet? Well… maybe for special occasions. But while we’re on the topic of feminine underthings, I’d like to take a moment to plug the concept of reusable cloth maxipads. I got a bit hot and bothered over the idea back in February, and wound up ordering a set from Many Moons.
They’re fabulous; the only fun part about menstruating. Sure, that whole “soak ’em in cold water and they won’t stain!” bit is a huge lie, but they wash up better than one might think. And they’re comfortable! I’ve stopped itching for the last couple days of my period. Yeah, I’ve got finicky skin and a couple chemical sensitivities, but this is the first time they’ve ever saved me money on consumer products while granting me the moral superiority of a righteous environmentalist. I’m totally fucking thrilled.
Evangelical ecofeminist out.
