Is it too much to ask?

This isn't a full-fledged rant or anything - it's really more of a pondering. I had to buy new underwear the other day, because well...I needed them really bad. So here's my question: when selling six packs of undies, is it too much to ask for underwear companies to put in more than two remotely decent colors in a package?

In the six pack I bought there were the following colors:

White
Beige
Pepto Bismol Pink
Mint green
Dull, almost dirty looking peach
Geometric pattern including all of the above mentioned colors

I genuinely like the beige and I'm fine with the white but the others offend my delicate sensibilities. I don't do pastels. They make me uncomfortable - even if nobody sees it but me. I'm guessing that other people feel that way too since I can never find an packages of just white or just beige undies. Clearly, the other women whose delicate sensibilities are offended got there first.

If it make you feel any better. I don't do pastel undies either.

Oh yeah, this is peeve of mine. Really, can I just buy a 3-pack or 6-pack of black underwear, please?

I'm getting tired of my pink and purple ones:)

Last batch I bought were white, gray, and black. I'm going back for another bag, since these are the 'stay put' kind!

Molly: Oh, there's another peeve. I don't think the same style (even if it IS allegedly the same style) is ever in stock two visits in a row, making those "Oh! These underwear fit great! I must buy more!" trips very unsatisfying.

Ladies, ladies...

The solution is soooo simple.

GO COMMANDO.

You'd be surprised how much you save on underwear, and now I don't have to worry about trying to get the camo pair to match anything I might actually wear!

Hey, I'm just saying....

hugs

LOL Chris:) That's when, the last time I bought bras, I bought several of the ones I loved, since it's hard to find my size!

I have the same problem with multi packs of socks.

Mia Watts said...

Hm. Yes, I noticed the same problems. I can rarely even find white which totally pisses me off. I DON'T FUCKING WANT DAISIES ON MY ASS! Or the representation of picasso-y eyeballs and lips. I'm not 12.

Mia Watts said...

Kris, I can never find my camo pair. I hunt and hunt, but no panties. Nope.

And I'll tell you something else, the larger size you need, the worse it gets.

Black. Black is all I need.
Just black, thanks.
I'll wear the black until they make a darker color.
