While pride month is over in Toronto, pride in Ottawa is just getting started! So what is the one thing everyone should have ready for this spectacular event? Rainbow panties!
Even more exciting is that they are made locally in Ontario, Canada! The amazing human behind With Love Lingerie, Carrie Russel prides herself on having ethical business practices and keeping production in Canada.
It honestly brings me so much joy seeing the rainbow popping out of my jeans every time I take them off.
The fabric used is probably one of the most comfortable fabrics I’ve worn when it comes to underwear. It’s like a lighter swimsuit fabric. Super stretchy, and no itch. There is no worry about the garment falling apart when putting these on either.
They retail for $25!
The rainbow panties are available in sizes small to XL, as are most pieces made by With Love Lingerie. I am always worried when it comes to buying XL panties at my current size, but honestly, as soon as I saw these in person, any fear I had about them not fitting vanished in an instant. They stretch and hug my large butt like they were made for me. No awkwardly small leg holes either! So there have been no surprises of red marks around my legs after wearing them all day!
Where To Buy
I bought these amazing panties from Gigi’s House of Frills. They specialize in vintage and vintage inspired lingerie. They do carry a wide range of sizes and can even special order sizes if they don’t have what you need! Unfortunately they do not list these on their online website, but you can email and contact them through their instagram and have them set up a custom listing to buy them online. Otherwise, you will just have to take a trip to Toronto to check out this gorgeous little store!
This exact pair is not listed on the With Love Lingerie website, but you can find a great selection of other absolutely gorgeous pieces that you may just have to your wish list!
While it isn’t the most… tantalizing underwear, it does make me smile every time I take off my pants and unveil the rainbow butt I have always wanted. But really, can you ever have too much cute underwear?
UPDATE:: After wearing and washing them for the past few months, I will say the elastic has slowly started to have the strings that fall off. The underwear still is incredibly cute, colourful and comfortable to wear, so it still is one that I always will feel happy wearing. A few falling strings isn’t going to stop my proud ass.
