Are women still wearing slips? Half or full? Does anyone wear girdles? What type of guy is wearing a thong ...and there must be a lot of you since there are a lot of them around. I met a guy who wore a jockstrap under a suit--regularly! HOT!!! I also met a guy who wore Fruit Of The Loom underwear! Perfect fit!!! It's not about the underwear but what's in them! I also met a suit and tie guy that goes commando! So! Let's talk about foundation garments! What's hot and what's not! What's still around and what has gone away!
I think that a skinny or swimmer's build type guy in a thong is a no-no. A muscled guy in one is HOT!!!
Can anyone tell me where to find a good corsetiere
Tee-Hee! I actually have an answer for you! Don't ask...
Uh, jockstraps, thongs and underwear are not foundation garments, OP. Think Spanx.
A foundation is the base for something. You often here about the structural foundations of buildings, but a good idea can also be the foundation of a successful business.
In the simplest sense, foundations support something else. Friendship is the foundation of a good marriage, and many svelte figures rely on girdles (known to underwear specialists as a foundation garment). But foundations are also charitable organizations. And in cosmetics, foundation is gooey make-up that's supposed to match your skin tone.
So...jockstraps, thongs and underwear can be foundations. They can be a "base for something" too.
No, foundation garments are "shape wear", which are designed to alter or enhance the body's shape. Girdles and corsets were early versions. It's not synonymous with underwear like you assume.
If you wanted to start a thread about underwear, why didn't you just title the thread "underwear"?
Foundation garments used to be a nonthreatening way to say bras, girdles, and other unmentionables.
@R9, the term makes me giggle a little because it's so genteel and southern. Underwear has been done before so I just bundled it in all together. Ya know... a jock strap under a suit can be just one of those unmentionable things!
There is a perfect movie quote to go along with this thread. Can anyone guess it?
Our full-length foundation garment... all lace... zips up the back, and no bones!
Are lots of men wearing Spanx? They sell Spanx for men at Brooks Brothers of all places. Guys must be buying the stuff.
You know what word makes me laugh? Underpants.
"Panties" makes me queasy, though.
A slip is not a foundation garment. The pretension of the ignorant shows up here again.
And if OP knows that there are a lot of thongs out there, he presumably knows what kind of guy wears them, unless he's seeing huge inventories in stores, which hardly means that they are selling or being worn.
Actually, R13's quote is incorrect: The correct quote is "Our new lace foundation garment - zips up the back and no bones"
Nice try though and thanks for the good laugh
The woman who invented Spanx is a gazillionaire
I've never seen something take off like that stuff has
@R23, relax. I'll admit that I'm ignorant. I call "it" all foundation garments. Shoot me. But, I do have a sincere interest. Do women wear slips anymore? Do they make them? No. I don't have an idea of what type of man wears a thong. However, as you noted, they are in the stores and have been around for decades. So, someone is buying them. If not, stores wouldn't carry them. What type of man buys this skimpy foundation garment?
r19, he looks like he's cast in a prison version of Swan Lake.
You know you're an old queen when you come into a thread looking for R13/R24.
Yes, an old queen am I .....
JUNGLE RED !!!
And here I thought it was "Our new one-piece foundation garment. Zips up the back, and no bones."
Of course folks still wear their garments!
oh wi oh wi oh
I wonder why the prisoner at R19 writes, "I am Italian by race and Christian by faith" and lists his race as "Other". Italian is a race?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
