I find myself wondering what BGPs look like exactly.
Are they like Spanx that help you suck it up? You may look polished on the outside, but you'll probably feel somewhat constricted.
Are they like granny panties that cover you up? Unsightly, but functional, they hide your ugly spots, but in turn make you feel grotesquely worn.
Perhaps they are like a thong? You may look hot, but they're a pain in the butt.
What if they were a nice cotton blend – comfortable, breathable – that hugged you in all the right places and gave a little just where you needed? What if they had a pattern that no one knew was there but you? What if they were your favorite pair of underwear instead of the dreaded bottom pair in the drawer?
What if, instead of your nemesis, they became your best friend?
What if, instead of representing keeping it together, they came to represent taking care of yourself?
What's your favorite pair of underwear? Label those your BGPs and wear them with joy.
(And don't forget to wash them from time to time!)
