I have a pair of knickers that I like to call “The Lucky One.” I wore it to an interview when I applied for a scholarship for grad school, to an interview for a career-boosting job, and on the day I brought my dog to the vet for a diagnosis. To keep it short, in all the occasions that I really needed good luck on, I wore that lacy, red and black seamless panty and the results were better than what I hoped and prayed for. I felt like my knickers were a sense of security for me and when I put them on, I got something more than just covering my rear end. I was awarded the scholarship, my dream job, and my dog turned out to just have food poisoning with no serious illness.
That pair made me feel like I owned the world. Like my self-confidence was sky high and that I was the queen of the world, ready to conquer the challenges life has for me. When it came time to retire The Lucky One, I learned to carry that self-confidence with me all the time. All my endeavors have been peachy after. Needless to say, it was the best purchase I ever made with any pair of underwear.
I’m pretty sure that out of superstition (I don’t know how this works with lingerie or underwear, but there’s got to be someone who believes in it), sheer luck, or opportunity, we all have had a pair of knickers and bras that have seen us in our successes. Tell us about yours. What’s your story?
