Lindsay Lohan & The Art of Going Commando


Going out sans underwear is an art form that many celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan, are ruining for the rest of us.

Skipping underwear is awesome for a few reasons, but the most important is avoiding the cardinal sin of fashion faux pas -- the visible panty line.

There is nothing more uncouth or less sexy than those tell-tale lines on a woman's backside. I will go to great lengths to avoid that myself and that includes going commando on occasion.

There are other reasons, too.

These include:

  • Men love it.
  • It can be quite comfortable.
  • No panty lines.
  • Did I mention no panty lines? 

Unfortunately, celebrities ruin it with their crotch shots and see-through blouses. They make something that should be a subtle secret known only by you and your man into fodder for Perez Hilton and his Twitter account.

But skipping underwear need not be a trashy move, especially on the bottom. Now, I will admit, going braless is simply not an option for me. It never really was, but especially after two pregnancies and three years of breastfeeding (still going!), the girls need all the support they can get.

But skipping underwear isn't something you tell others. If others know you have no underwear, then you have failed. If you're going commando, here are some tips:

DON'T wear: 

  • Low waisted pants
  • Short skirts
  • See-through blouses
  • White tops
  • Tight jeans

DO wear:

  • Pants with smooth, pocketless backs.
  • Longer skirts
  • Yoga pants
  • Tanks with shelf bras
  • Strapless dresses

Going commando can be awesome. Just do it right and no one has to know.

Do you ever skip underwear?

I'm extremely busty, so I haven't gone braless since I was 14. But I haven't worn underpants in 20 years (except for a week after I had my baby, when I had to wear that horrible massive post-partum pad). I have an apple-bottom....very round and wedgie-prone. No matter what kind of undies I attempt to wear, they always creep up my butt. And thongs are just irritating. So, I'm happily and discreetly going commando here everyday. Oh, and one bonus you didn't mention is that it's better for your vaginal health to keep the area well-ventilated. Personally, I've never had a yeast infection or UTI. Not sure if my aversion to panties is the reason but it certainly didn't hurt!

Occasionally. Always commando going to yoga, mainly because I hate thongs since the episiotomy and I like to meditate on something other than how I can discreetly move the fabric without putting my hand on my butt.

Hubs likes boy short panty lines.

I might erin go braless on a warm day with a ruffly shirt, never in winter. I'd poke an eye out, kid.


Trying doing that here in Alaska ... a bit cold ...
