Minor gripe: why use the word "panty"?!?!

OK, have to get this off my chest among fellow QVC/HSN viewers. Why must they use the word "panty"? Why not underwear? Even the slip shorts TSV was a panty. Yucky word. I can't watch them sell underwear. Thanks for reading my silly, but true, complaint.

That is all I ever say. I always call my purse a handbag as well.🤷

I find the word "panty" perfectly acceptable and very feminine.  I think of underwear as a bit more industrial term, great for men and children.

Panty is short for pantaloon which women wore a long time ago.

I like panties better than bloomers. 😆

@deedeeMEX    Is "panty" some kind of dirty word?  To me its just the name of a piece of underwear like a bra or slip.  You've got some kind of weird hang-up if that bothers you

Thanks for going negative on something I was trying to keep light. I don't like a word, so what? And I said so, I wasn't attacking anyone, but you feel a need to-- maybe you're the one with the hangup?

Sometimes they are called briefs.  Panties doesn't bother me though.
