I just knew this had to be from Muffin or her alterego!

Now, Peeky to further confuse things, did you know there are things called "All in Ones"? They are quite the fashion statement and in a pinch can stand in for a swimsuit. I promise, you will be the talk of the beach club, especially if you wear a handpainted teeshirt with rhinestones as your coverup

Why wear a girdle under your swimsuit? Look into buying a Mirclesuit or Trimshaper swimsuit. They are sold in many dept stores and I think Travelsmith has them. I bought one this year and it works just as well as a girdle.

I remember my mother chastising me for not owning a girdle, saying "after I had my first baby, I never left the house without wearing my girdle."

I occasionally wonder what common garment or grooming apparatus, will disappear in the next generation. (like garter belts and slips have done). I imagine myself at age 85, sitting in my rocking chair, shaking my head as my great-granddaughter goes out the door, and saying "I can't believe you girls don't ________ anymore."

Garter belts and slips have gone out of
style!? I wasn't aware. I never leave
the house without my black lace slip
and red garters.

I think Peeky is Muffin's second cousin, once removed.

My sister doesn't wear a girdle = sharpei - need I say more? Ladies I need to wear a girdle to enhance my wasp-like waist - true hour-glass I am - when I take it off I fly around the room like a deflated balloon.

No fodorite is wearing a girdle on airplanes? my my - you are all wonderful for telling me this

If you're wearing a girdle on the plane and you start to retain fluid and begin to swell, does that mean your boobs get bigger? I mean it has to have some place to go doesn't it? Maybe that where the "hour glass" figure comes from?

Too funny! Even saying the word 'girdle' out loud is funny.
Just be sure to warn everyone around you when it's time to take it off. Oh Gawd, all that bloating about to be released!

The girdles you have to fasten are
called corsets and they REALLY have gone
the way of whalebone stays and hoop skirts. But I dont understand this:
why would anyone wear a girdle (under or
over)a swimsuit? I have to shoehorn
myself into my TrimShape swimsuit...
what more could a girdle do?
