Don't Get Your Knickers in a Twist

Me ball and chain is a limey, and wish I had a nickle for every time I hear "Shelley, don't get your knickers in a twist". To dummy it down a bit for us Americans (my husband is from England and what he means is "Don't get your panties in a twist".

Selling vintage lingerie over the years, I have heard so many variations for what people call undergarments. Sure, we Americans call them panties or panty, or the dreaded "underwear" ughhhhhhh, YUCK. Did you know here in America, the garter belt is known to the Brits as a suspender belt! Men's suspenders are knows to the Brits as braces.

Confused yet? It's ok, keep your pecker up.
