Disposable Undies

I was browsing around Mydin (the Emporium of Cheap Imitation Goods) when I chanced upon a pack of disposable briefs. A pack of 6 is only RM1.90, so I bought it. Why would I need disposable briefs, you ask?

Well, after I finish my exams I have a packed schedule of outings with friends in KL. And that might mean having to stay over for the night. Plus there's also the trip to Redang Island (more about Redang in a future post). I thought that having some disposable undies is a great way to minimize luggage, so that's why I bought them.

I understand the risks involved with paper underwear. They tear easily and they probably become transparent when soaked with water. So I was very hesitant to bring them to Redang, but I decided to try one to see how well it will hold up (pun intended) before making my decision.

When I unrolled the underwear I was surprised at how big it was. Now, I'm not saying my waist is small or anything, but I expected the underwear to be a little smaller since it is supposed to be a universal size. Even the elastic band is not very elastic! When I put it on it is as if I was going "commando". Now that can be a good or bad thing depending on the situation but it's mostly bad, because briefs are meant to be tight while boxers are the ones providing the "freedom".

However, breathability was the least of my concerns. There's a price we have to pay when each underwear costs only RM0.30. And in this case, the hidden cost is way too high. You see, the underwear is already transparent with or without water! Sure, it might make for some kinky play but it's obviously unsuitable for wear in public areas such as, oh, I dunno? Redang?

So it appears my disposable undies are REALLY disposable, after all.

Hey, I bought the disposable underwear before out of curiousity. Guest what? its too small for me... it was XL size but maybe it is for XL asian standard size.. still it tooo small for me. I recalled they dont have it in XXL size. bought it from Watson or Guardian. The transparent thing makes you feels.. err sexy I think.. hehehe.. kinky huh?

Yes, the kinky factor is there which I like but the one I bought is too big! If it was smaller/tighter then it would have been better. But with the one I have, it's like I'm wearing a puffy showercap.

ZemieN said...

moses: Haha, no offense taken. Yes, I do have to agree it resembles Pampers due to its paper material and puffiness.

Paper undies. How apt for the Seventh Lunar Month. :D

But if one wears them, REALLY make sure nobody will see you in it. Desperate situations only.
