I dont know why, but I find I love buying panties now that I've lost weight. I guess I feel sexier for one thing,and love that I can buy all the cute stuff I see on the panty and bra shelf. I have several matching bra/panties now and I never had that before. I'm sure you could buy that stuff in the larger sizes but it always cost an arm and a leg. Now I can browse the clearance racks and get that stuff because I'm a "normal" size. It's a great feeling!
