If you've never given birth, then you have no clue what I'm talking about. If you HAVE, then you may share the excitement and joy that gauze panties bring into my life. First of all, I Googled this and there are absolutely NO pictures of these beauties anywhere. Maybe some similar versions, but not the real deal. Once I get mine, I'll be sure to take a photo or two and be the first to enter them into the Google hall of fame.
If you're totally confused, let me explain...
Gauze panties are probably one of the greatest inventions ever created. I grew up being a VERY picky child about what I would and wouldn't wear. Most things with tags, seams, uncomfortable material, weird patching or even scratchy edges made me CRINGE. Kora has inherited this gene from me which, although is annoying, I understand. When I was a kid my panties were the biggest issue for me. Most had elastic at the top that I HATED. Most had thick seams on the side that would dig into my hips and leave horrible red marks. Although I found some I could live with, I've always hated clothing that I can FEEL on me.
When I had Jake a miracle occurred. I was given my first pair of GAUZE PANTIES by the hospital staff. At first glance I was embarrassed that I was even being told to put them on, but once on, my world changed. Imagine, if you will, panties made of gauze with NO SEAMS, just all hooked magically together! When you wear these you feel weightless, like you have nothing on at all!! It's the greatest feeling ever!
You of course don't wear these panties forever. Only until you heal or if you're like me, when the gauze starts stretching so much that areas of your bum are hanging out of what used to be tiny holes. The gauze panties DO have a shelf life which is the bad part. The other bad part is that they aren't attractive at all. You wouldn't want to wear these to be sexy so don't even think about it. With Austin gone, I may enjoy my gauze panties even longer than usual!!
Before Amy had her first baby, I told her about the joy of gauze panties. She too enjoyed them. I'm not sure as much as I do, I'm not sure ANYONE enjoys them as much as I do. They're like Heaven for your bottom and they are in my top three of my most favorite parts of giving birth.
(number 1 is the baby, of course and number 2 is the drama...those who know me KNOW I love drama!!)
Dear Gauze Panties,
Gosh, I don't know where to begin. It's been about 5 years since I've seen you last and BOY have I missed you. I don't know if YOU know this, but I'm about to see you again in just 3 days. I can't wait to hug you and squeeze you and put you on my bum. You've always been so great to me and I don't think I've ever told you thank you. I'm posting this on my blog to publicly tell the world how much I appreciate all you do for bottoms around the world. Thanks for being YOU gauze panties.
See you soon, can't wait!
