Oh, and thongs are out.

It’s been decided that granny knickers are officially trendy now.

Yesterday The New York Times published an article announcing that young women are saying “no” to thongs in favour of “granny panties”.

The newspaper interviewed several young women, including fashion designers, about the surge in popularity of granny knickers. Designer Julia Baylis told the newspaper that she “only” wears granny panties and described it as “underwear you wear totally for you”.

Indeed, trends analyst Bernadette Kissane told the newspaper that thongs “have had their moment” and that it is now “considered cool to be wearing full-bottom underwear”.

The news quickly spread like wildfire.

Some women were pleased to learn that they were rocking the trend before it was officially in.

Although some objected to the term “granny panties” still being bandied about.

While some people defended poor ol’ thongs.

But you can’t really argue with this, though.

Our thoughts are with Sisqo at this troubling time.
