Mom taught me at an early age to "always ware nice underwear for you never know when something is going to happen unexpected." She was always referring to a hospital visit or even death. I don't like the term underwear although proper. I think "Lingerie" is so much more proper. It started in Jr. High when all the girls like to have the best lingerie and show it off. That teaching and modeling has always been a part of me throughout my adult life. Nice lingerie makes me a different person wherever i may be at home or in the working or social world.
