Long-leg panty girdles were sooooo chickie Kool! No matterHow they might hurt! Until that is a certain number of hours Passed and they started to feel exquistely femme........Do you remember getting your first department store 'Bra & Panty Club'Card? Now there are many stories to tell!
I guess either the Bra & Panty Club was before my time or not in existence where I shopped.
By the way Alan Shepard wore a long-leg panty girdle on his first sub-orbitalSpaceflight, as did several of the first Mercury astronauts did on their out of this World jaunts! NASA forgot that the guys would need some way of taking a peeinside the Spacesuits. The nurse that was the personal dresser and the regular prime medic to all the astros for their flights, realized the problem on the lastpractise exercise for Alan's flight, and while the NASA geeks went ape trying to solve The Problem which took over a year to design a collection system; she went out to a department store and bought several girdles and then sewed a male medical collection tube into the garment, then it was Blast off Time!The only problem heard from the flyboys was that the system sure held their boys tight!Proper tucking was not practised......The Movie the Right Stuff launch scene where Alan Says we are all Wet ..... Now, that was a Backhanded joke at the real thing, which Tom Wolfe knew about from the Astros and the Nurse!
One of my favorite films!
