    I see London, I see France, I see Polly’s white cotton underpants. Welcome to Polly’s White Cotton Underpants, a true story about growing up in the Midwest during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s when white cotton underpants, full cut with elasticized waists, symbolized the most important girl rule of all: Never, never, ever take off your white cotton underpants—until you get married. Join Polly as she shares the first thirty years of her life, and learn how she finally traded her white cotton underpants for a pair of black silky panties.
