I keep reading all these articles about French women and how they prefer to buy two or three "really good pieces" of clothing rather than 10 crappy little shirts and some jeans from Kohl's, and they just get their five wardrobe items laundered or cleaned and wear them over and over and that's why they're so chic. Similar articles say that French women always, always wear beautiful underwear (bras and underpants, chemises, whatever), even if they're just staying at home watching old reruns and chasing after the kids. Never boring old plain cotton bikinis like American women. I am wondering: Do French women only buy two or three "really good pieces" of underwear? And, I guess, rinse them out in the sink every night, since they're made of silk?|
And if they do this, do they do it all month long? Or do they get a legitimate break from always wearing beautiful silk underwear, for that week when they might stain and ruin it? Or if they take a break from it, is that like their guilty little secret, that they're wearing plain boring underwear?
I would love if some actual French women could answer this! It has puzzled me for a while.
