Reverse Pantology

Back in August, when the sun was hot and the living was easy, we, meaning dh and the girls, made a stop at the local (and fairly new) mall for all their back to school needs. Well, not exactly all, they still need winter stuff, but enough to get them started.

One pressing requirement; underpants. We got them each six pair new.

But, poor Tehila! She found so many faults with her new ones; they were uncomfortable, they pinched, they gave her a rash. They were bigger than the old pairs, and I tried lots of things to make them more comfortable--stretching them and washing them and tossing in fabric softener.

But alas and alack to no avail. Comfortable undergarments are a must, imho, and I sympathised, so we figured another trip to the store. Then today I pulled out a pair of her new ones, handed it to her and she gave a cry...

Here, I said, and stretched them hard. It seemed to help somewhat but;

Look she said, quickly getting out of and then back into her panties, but this time with the back to the front.

The label, sewn into the back was scratching and irritating her.

Well, then wear them inside out."

"Inside out?" she asked me increduously.

Voila! Problem solved. They are as comfortable as her own pair.
The solution was there all along; easily solvable when we had correctly named the problem in the first place.

Like a lot of life's problems.

Poor Tehila that you're discussing her underwear issues with us, lol. ;)
