That was a great article, really well-written and had some very good points.
Sadly, I feel uncomfortable when I'm not wearing a thong! I have to wear trouser suits to work every day, which means it's VPL central if I'm not wearing a thong. Also, my boss, who actually has a great body, has permanent VPL and it's really noticeable. I can't be the only one who notices it. So I'm paranoid whenever I run out of thongs and have to wear full knickers!
I love matching underwear though. Whenever I buy a bra I usually buy two or three matching thongs, a matching pair of bikini knickers and maybe some french knickers too. Bras don't need washing so often.
