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.

  1. The Fundoshi is meant to be warn under not over cloths, or by itself.
