ME! I don't know when Joanna Goddard or the author of "Chasing Harry Winston" jumped on my bandwagon, but I declared utter disgust at the word panties during my very first post in 2003. I reiterated my stance in 2006, and yes, I STILL hate the word panties. <Shiver.>
Some of the alternatives offered in the article's comment section include "piddies" (really?), "chonies" (huh?) and the good old straightforward "undies." I still prefer my Gammy's Hungarian-influenced option: gutchies!
Thx to Skydiving in Stilettos for the heads up!
