LOL, finy, we may be wearing the same cotton bras!! Hahahahaha. I try to have cotton as much as possible and I have not had synthetic knickers since a small window of time in the 70s when Kayser had some gorgeous silky ones. My friends and I are all finding it harder and harder to get cotton things. It's almost worth a trip to Walmart to stock up. My thermals are banlon too, finy. I did get a few cotton things at Best and Less recently.
I wear natural fibres like cotton or silk next to my skin! Have done so ever since I can remember, I do like the cotton undies(as in knickers!) I am able to get at Best and Less as they are much cheaper than the lovely underwear outlets such as Figgers or Bras'n'Things where I would love to shop when I had a much larger budget to play with! Good silk underwear is simply a treat,but I have not spoilt myself with any for many,many years! As for bras I do love cotton but I need to really shop around for these. It is very sad that cotton underwear is getting so much harder to find,but I shall continue to go on the treasure hunt as it is so much better for the skin.
Oh...this is secret business....but, the question did remind me of all the funny names I've heard for undies....witches britches, bombay bloomers, knickers...funny to give such a small item of clothing these names!
I've always worn cotton undies from Target from packs of 8's or 10's. I have them in all the colours of the rainbow plus b&w. My cotton bras are also from Target, but are not very comfortable! In winter I always wear black marino thermal long sleeve spencers, under my cotton large print dresses, with black marino thermal leggings. I've given up wearing bras under my dresses now, but it still looks like I'm wearing a bra! I also buy a daughter in Melbourne, 5 or 6 black marino thermal spencers a year, beacuse hers were always getting holes in them,
I have to confess I like silk and lace undies. Have quite a big collection of all the colours imaginable. I prefer sets and my favourite set is bright red lace bra with red lace panties - gorgeous! My late husband appreciated them too!!
I absolutely have to have cotton pants in summer. Can't utilise cotton bra because I need elasticity - well I think every woman does unless you want to wear the girls very low slung !
I like a little elasticity in the pants as well but the most important thing is cotton. Like my pants white as well.
In clothing I love linen.
In Australia I think cotton is the way to go, if you can afford it. If you can't afford it, you just have to get used to washing your undies a whole lot.
