Disclosure: I purchased these items myself. All opinions are my own. During isolation for COVID-19, I realized I was running out of basic cotton panties. Like, literally running out. I had just tossed a bunch of pairs that were beyond repair and all that was left was a drawer full of very fancy panties. Which is all fine and good, but sometimes you just need simple, breathable underwear to run […]
