How can I have survived 35 years without this knowledge? :

The other day, I had to run an errand through an unfamiliar part of town. Unfamiliar because, well, it's rather unsavory, you know? So I'm driving along, when I spot the sign for this business:

Ideal Garment and Scientific Panty

Given that name, anyone care to guess what I might find inside? I was too chicken to stop and look!

Wow! I can't even imagine. What would a scientific panty be? You know science covers a lot of territory so it could mean so many things. I'll get back to you when I have an answer.

I am in LOOOOVVVEEE!!!!

Ideal Garments are just that: ideal. They love you and make you look lovely all the time. They are happy to do anything with you, whether it is gardening or going to a ball. And they don't make you spend money on dry cleaning and don't make you want to go home to get out of them. They want you to have fun and be happy and safe and know that you look good all the time.
Quote:
Ideal Garments are ideal. If they are not, you must bring them back, either to be adjusted or for a full refund. In any case, no garment is to be left unworn, an error of judgement languishing in the back of a closet. No. It ruins the experiment, destroys the science, and shatters hope that we will one day be served by our garments, our whole delicious selves, rather than be in servitude to them.

Give it back and let us make it ideal. Or send it back and go on your way without us. 100% guaranteed we'll kick your butt if we find out you kept a garment that was not ideal for you.
AND - they'll be putting up directions to make your own - how fun is that?

Quote:
The keys to making an ideal garment are to be willing to let the garment embrace the body or drape the body as is appropriate to the fabric and the garment, and to use wonderful and interesting fabrics. Picking out fabric that is good and not bad, and being willing to make skirts sufficiently tight and pants sufficiently loose is the trick, and that is the thing you will most likely not be able to do. Not from lack of skill but from lack of bravery. So it is for us to encourage bravery and free-thinking and to canoodle you through the frightening process of wearing a garment that does not seem familiar and even seems wrong, but to wear it long enough that you give it a chance to show you what it can be. Like allowing a new person to talk to you long enough that you come to understand who they are really, not just what they appeared to be on the surface and at first meeting.
