I in turn remember the suggestion for paper knickers, more for women as cheap, disposable underwear during periods. Maybe it was meant all the time to combat infections, it's too long ago to remember fully.Paper Knickers
Let's talk about bikinis
My first bikinis briefs were Hang Ten Micro bikini underwear. I was 15, it was 1986
JustSomeDude71, the brand of your first pair sound cool. How micro were they? Did you buy them on your own?
Actually, my mother bought them for me. We were at K-Mart in the menswear section and she asked me if I wanted to try them. I quickly answered yes. That was in June of 1986 and I never went back to tighty whities ever again!
They were just basic bikinis, cotton low rise brief looked much like the Jockey Elance Bikini Brief
