Cathy - Mai Thi Luu, HCMC

"Well definitely the weather. In a place like Saigon, you definitely want to dress cool. No bras - please put that in."

I love her cute graphic sundress and her adorned strappy sandals. Cathy is the force behind the salivating inducing Gastronomy blog.

A look at those sandals.

OK - Now I am curious since she brought up the subject: What are the style of panties of choice based on the weather?

Retail-wise the bras and panties are the same that we have in SF. Personally, I've been wearing the same bras and panties I did in SF. My housemates also wear the same type of bras and panties found in the states. The only thing I noticed that made me draw back was that some locals go commando when they wear short skirts. So, maybe the same with some individuals going bra-less or panty-less, but we have that in the US as well.

Wow..Apart from the celebs I haven't seen any girls go commando in "real" life; especially in SF (have you?)
I was wondering if thongs and/or g-strings are the comfortable choice panties due to the heat or is that more of a US fashion choice?

yep, i've seen a few in my time in sf. some people hate panty lines.

i actually wear boy-shorts type undies, but i've noticed (via laundry) that my housemates wear g-strings. they also wear lacy underwear, all of which seems like it would be uncomfortable in the heat.

then again, people wear pants/ slacks here and i've given those up to be a dress/skirt only person.

I'll have to pay more attention.... but, all in all soft pantie lines (despite being a fashion no no) are way sexier than going commando IMHO

Good for you for committing to dresses/skirts. Boy-shorts are cute, but bikini style panties are probably a cuter surprise under a dress if your not into g-strings.

Are you familiar with Cycle Chic? Interested to know if there is much around in HCMC as I venture to guess it is a big bicycle town.

hcmc is a cycle town, but not in the way you think. it's a vehicle for the every day man/woman and child to transport themselves, so either children/students or the poor usu. ride bikes. one day i'll plant myself somewhere and attempt to take photos of people biking and you'll understand.
