The Sumo Warrier Princess
I don't know about you, but I’m getting tired of the same old boring product line at Victoria's Secret.
Sure they sell Cheekies, Cheekinis, and V-Strings.
But I have not seen one stinkin' fundoshi on their shelves.
Even the Japan Trend Shop, which is not exactly your go-to source for lingerie, sells Fundoshi Panties Loincloth Underwear for Women.
Traditionally, fundoshi are worn by sumo wrestlers, but there is a growing movement in Japan to "reclaim them as the undergarments of choice for regular folk too."
Maybe Victoria's Secret didn't get the memo. You don't have to be a sumo wrestler to wear a fundoshi!
Unfortunately, fundoshi are not cheap: $100 for 2-pack set on the Japan Trend Shop web site.
Way out of my blog budget.
The good news is that I had the perfect purple pillow case in my linen closet waiting for the opportunity to be transformed into a piece of sexy lingerie.
I was able to replicate the Fundoshi Panties Loincloth on the Japan Trend Shop. And my Nerdling Fundoshi is, indeed, quite comfortable.
But, I'm sorry. I do NOT feel at all like a sumo wrestler while sporting my fundoshi. I needed the real thing, not some girlie clone.
To that end, I googled "how to make a fundoshi" and found these step by step instructions:
So I cut up another purple pillow case and went to work.
It was like a damn IQ test. But after 2 Advil and a glass of wine I was successful.
Lou. Sumo-Warrier Princess.
I'm way too sexy for my fundoshi.
Oh. I heard Victoria's Secret is looking for new models. Don't hold breath, Victoria.
I'm not sure you can afford me.
