I used to go to thrift stores to buy my lingerie. I had bras, panties, garters, slips, camisoles, stockings, and nylons in black, white, red, and nude. I would wear the lingerie to purchase stiletto shoes, having a female wait on me. I would try the shoes on and walk around the store prior to buying them. Many times when I traveled, I wore the lingerie under my suit. Sometimes, I would take off my coat, not sure if people could see the bra straps or not. My thoughts were they did not, but when I would look at women, I could see their straps, so now I wonder. Did they see mine? Three times, my wife found my stuff and threw them away. The last time I bought any lingerie, I went to a store and purchased everything from bras, camisoles, panties, garters, slips, and nylons. My wife found them in a duffle bag two years later and threw them in the garbage, before I knew that she had found them. Since then, I have been able to get her to wear a shelf bra, crotchless panties, and stockings during sex. Someday, I want to surprise her. I will wear her crotchless panties. I haven't gotten the courage yet, though.
