15-for15 Challenge03 - When the flared billows...

Yeah, which panties shall we find???

Welcome to my third piece in the 15-for-15 Challenge themed woman; her body, soul and spirit. Guess what inspired this title! This morning I was on my way to work; walking yeah - for now though *loud Amen to that* As I walked through Motorways before Daystar Church, of course there were vehicles zooming pass carrying with them heavy breeze and the next thing I knew my peplum blouse was flying in all direction leaving my stomach bare to the scrutinizing eyes of all that walked past me. I tried severally to hold the flared part in place but as the vehicles wouldn't stop raising air, I just left the thing to fly and passersby to enjoy the show...nothing to be "unproud" of *winks*

This actually brings to mind something my mama used to say to us as growing girls (four of us). She would hammer on our wearing pristine white undies all the time. My mum would always check our panties to be sure there were no holes, no discoloration of any sort as a result of improper washing, no dark stains...nothing unappealing to the external eyes in short and do you know her reasons for doing all these? She wanted us to practice good hygiene, true but the point she emphasizdd was, "If you mistakenly get into a fight now or you fall and people try to help you and in the process rip your clothes, what do you want them to see you wearing underneath-dirty pants? Dirty brassiere?" I was never one to get into fights or trouble of any sort, but I used to have asthma attacks that went out of hand so I imagined being rushed to the hospital and the doctor needing to unbutton my shirt, what color of ***** will he find? So ladies, be intentional about the choice of lingerie you wear.

The original title for this post was "which panties" but this morning's experience made me tweak it a little bit so let's tow that original line now...

One thing I dislike for shizo as I am sure a lot of other people dislike too especially guys is to see panty lines through clothing of ladies. Yes they look and they see those visible, bulging lines too. Gawdammit!They ain't sexy at all especially when you have a pencil skirt on or a bodycon dress. How do you avoid this fashion faux pas? I'm just going to briefly summarize from knowledge I gathered through research...

1. Understand your backside shape. True, we always preach that before you can make progress on challenge, you need to understand the root cause of that problem. This better helps in the solution you proffer. The backside has cheeks and every pant's elastic causes some sort of indentation which results in the visible panty lines people see. So it is best you understand your shape to be able to decide if to wear a full panties (mostly suited for slimmer people) or a high cut panties (best for fuller people).

2. Use the right fabric. Spandex and elastic have proven to be the best choice because they firm your butt and don't show any wrinkles unlike cotton panties that squeeze up underneath causing some "unsmooth", funny look through your clothing.

3. To-match doesn't always work, choose a panty color that blends with your skin tone. If you are wearing light colored sheer fabric, it is important to really note this.

4. Just "thong" it. Do I get a yes? Let me make a confession, before now I never used to do thongs - days of flared skirts and oversize clothes but these days, with me in my huggy clothing, thongs is the way baby. This is what professionals use. I never thought I would get comfortable in thongs, but here I am. I don't even have to worry about any line visible through my skirts or dresses.

5. And if you are brave enough, go commando!

So that's my little bit in making the ladies more pleasant to look at *winks* Help another sister out, do share the information.

Lagos...yours en mine

What will I be without Chiboy? Today I got home and was still too excited to pull my sexy, slightly see-through tunic. I did a parade in front of my mirror for full 45 minutess bringing to mind every lovely comment I got during the day. From afar girls smiled, men whistled; old and new...all at my delectable look. What will Lagos be without "Chiboy tops?"

Wednesdays and Fridays are the perfect times to get good materials as they open bale. With less than N2000 I can get 4-5 beautiful blouses. Yaba is our spot, Chiboy is my scot and lot.

What will Lagos be without Chukwuemeka? 2a.m I am shivering and puking. No hospital in sight not even a dime to charter cab through the night. Great 'Emeka the chemist knows all the right drugs and I don't have to pay immediately either.

What will Lagos be without Alaba. Apapa. Idumota and all else? They do all the shady and all the unshady too. For my spec, I know I can get cool electronics not exactly "chacha" but close to "chacha" at a very reasonable price too. They have some exquisite grade A stuff some of us would buy and feel like kings and queens in our own right.

What will Lagos be without Iheanyi? Nna my guy knows all the correct money-making businesses - from transport business to commerce to building/construction materials. His hustles are real. His investment is big.

What will Lagos be without him?

I speak for that young school girl whose only shopping arena at the moment is Yaba, Westminster - Apapa, Vesper or any of such places she is confident of getting amazingly good deals. I speak for that man whose neighbor is the great chemist skilled in the art of giving the correct medicine (This is not in any way aimed at encouraging self-medication or over-the-counter drugs but truth remains some folks will never be quick to turn to hospitals first for any kind of ailment treatment).

I speak for everyone else who enjoys one benefit or the other from our Igbo brothers proudly known for their zealous and enthusiastic business skills...

We can argue who has created the most wealth in Lagos, that is far beside the point- do we even have to argue it? I mean do we ever argue which of the five senses is most important? Let no one sow discord or bitterness in our hearts. Lagos is yours as much as mine as we have the right to vote who we desire. Don't play ethnic or religious politics! Do your part, do it well and be sure to live peaceably...with all men.
