    LOL! This thread was just kind of making me feel sorta sad until I came upon this awesome question. It is true. Mormon chicks CAN show a lot of rack while still wearing them.

    Oh, the garment can reveal quite a lot of cleave. To compensate, it covers up erogenous areas known to lead to promiscuity like the collarbone and the upper shoulder. Zowie!

    Seems like the longer they wear 'em, the better they are at using them to exentuate...at least that's how it was with the older ladies in the DC singles ward I was in several years ago.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    We have an expert in the area. We should just wait and see what napper says.

    Seriously, I find the cut so strange given the intent of the garment. The things just plunge in the Cleveland, OhiO range. But, you see rack, get horny, and then want to multiply and replenish. I mean, that's God's plan, right?
    So Russell...what do you love about music? To begin with, everything.

    Oiy! Here it comes... church vomit from the depths of my stomach...

    First of all... The "extra" material from the crotch to the waistline... What the hell is all that for? If I pull my G bottoms all the way up, they ride midway between my boobs and my hips, NOT my waist. It is like they are compensating for the portly women who work in Beehive Clothing with a FUP.

    I do not wear my G bottoms all the way up, I roll them down so they rest on my hips, and it is not so I can wear low-rise jeans.

    Second... The tops... Ugh. I am currently taking a break from the tops because I am nursing. I just don't want to deal with them because it can make an awkward situation become a frustrating situation. I totally recommend to any nursing mother to scrap them for the first little while.

    Third... The tags... When did they change the silky tags to those plastic-y ones? Those plastic-y ones poke and are a nuisance. I have ripped every plastic tag out of my Gs and now have a hole... Which my three-year-old loves to point out and tease me by sticking her finger in there... Don't worry, she doesn't get any crack.

    Fourth... Mrs. Funk. I have found the dry-silk Gs to be my preference. When I wear my street clothes, they flow more easily and you don't feel like you have so many layers. If you wear cotton Gs with cotton clothes, there is too much friction. It seems like the Gs and clothes tend to stick together.

    Thank you Lord, that we have two-piece Gs instead of the one-piecers...

    I like the dry-silk bottoms for dresses because they tend to be a bit shorter. They don't work so well for me under jeans, so I end up wearing the new Carinessa bottoms. They are an improvement, but still reach up to my ribcage. If I wear the cotton or Dri-Lux and need to wear an undershirt on top of it, the result is nearly unbearable.

    The humanity!

    I am totally on this band wagon. I thought I would eventually get used to them, but it is still hard to do every day.

    True, the silky g's are the easiest to wear on the bottom. I don't think they come in petite so I always end up rolling the waist line down so I can wear normal pants. I actually started wearing the capri length so I wouldn't have the hideous line on my thighs or the roll-up to my butt. The length works great unless you are going to spontaneously get a pedicure and the foot scrub ends up going to your knee. That was fun. My girlfriends were clearly expecting an explanation, but I never gave one.

    The silky tops are much harder to wear on top. I am very particular about my bras and they are meant to fit my bare skin. It can't get a grip and things could potentially slip out. I like the t-shirt style tops in theory, but they don't work for me. The top is doesn't give between my breasts so I end up with a shelf. I like the cotton tops with the cups the best.

    Holy crap the world has changed since I was married. There is no way I would have let my wife talk about her bra in public.

    this thread is the closest we'll ever get to a Mormon Penthouse Forum.

    What ever happened to the one piece? Do they still make them? The bishop does ask you if you wear the authorized garment day and night. And every tr interview I gone too was told about wearing it.

    Not to not wear it when you work in the yard lounge or other times. When you can wear it. Wear it. Was even told to put on sweats when you jog.

    The garment can help you keep the law of chastity as you have to break a lesser temple covenant to break a bigger one. But I don't think people that violate the 7th commandment care.

    If you don't wear them like you should can't go to the temple. May be urban legend but heard of someone in testimomy meeting mentioning kid conceived through the Holy Garment. You don't talk about that in church.

    I think when you can wear them wear them. I have no problem with them. Second nature now. What I hate is when people walk around there house in nothing but there G's. They are to be covered I think.

    People who state that you should jog with garments aren't being respectful of the family jewels. In fact exercising with G's can end up being a horrible experience as they really aren't designed for it.

    For the record I hate G's. I wear them but that doesn't mean I have to like them.

    agreed, our Stake Pres tried saying that in a ward leadership meeting once, when it is painfully obvious that he has never tried exercising with g's before.

    I absolutely can not sleep with the tops on. I have enough trouble sleeping as it is. So that is the only time I don't wear them.

    I am sure I could get a note from my Dr. saying I can't wear the tops at night. I don't feel like doing that or discussing it with the Bishop. I feel like I answer the question honestly because I know I could get that note.

    I don't feel a bit of guilt, should I.

    This was the toughest part for me as well. I had just slept with a shirt off for so many years that it was tough to get used to. I do better these days, though in the summer when it warms up it's always tough.

    1. The outline of Women's garments show through many shirts. It looks silly. Maybe in Utah where everyone wears them you don't think about it. But outside of zion, it's weird.

    Also, since breastfeeding, I stopped wearing the bra over the top. So white shirts are totally out. Either you can see that I am wearing a bra over an undershirt (which is weird) or I wear the bra underneath the markings show through.

    2. Like you said, garments prevent me from wearing even modest styles. For example, I have tried on several modest dresses (with sleeves and a skirt passed my knees) that I cannot wear because the arm holes were cut too large and when I lift up my arms you can see garments.

    3. May through October in Mississippi--another layer of clothes is the last thing I need.

    4. Don't even get me started on "that time of the month." It is impossible to keep a pantyliner in place while wearing garments.

    5. They do not fit right and the sizes and quality are inconsistent. I always buy the same size but it's a crapshoot. One thing I can always count on--the waist will be way too high.

    Serious question: Who would you write to complain? I wonder if enough women complained changes would be made to their design.
    My wife has a good friend that got so fed up with the length between the crotch and waistline that she wrote the first presidency a letter. She couldn't bring herself to use the word "crotch," so she substituted the phrase "perineal area." HA! Anyway, to my best knowledge, I convinced her to amend the letter to not talk specifically about the crotch. This was years ago. In retrospect, my wife and I should have signed our names to her letter and fired it off as is.
