Ways Instagram has tried to sell me underwear

It's RELENTLESS

Alone in my room one night, in the silence of my own heart, I felt the slightest impulse: I should buy some new underwear one of these days. And The Algorithm heard, and it knew, and it smiled, for it had found the way to trap me.

Since then my every waking moment is an advertisement for underwear. These ads follow me around like a pack of hungry dogs. Here is a taste of my digital life.

Every caption from every underwear ad that has plagued me on Instagram
  1. You’re a sexy little minx and need the lingerie to match. 💕 Beautiful girly underunmentionables for a beautiful girly girl. 

  2. You’re a sexy little minx for YOURSELF because owning your sexuality is FEMINISM. Buy lingerie even if you don’t have a partner to appreciate it. YOU’LL appreciate it, in the office, with an outfit that announces “Boss Bitch” and undergarments that whisper “Slutty McLaceass” because WOMEN 👏CAN 👏HAVE 👏IT 👏ALL

  3. Comfy bras for comfy ladies! 🙌 Pass the eff out in our hideous monstrosities that feel like a dream 😴

  4. It took a team of 400 SCIENTISTS almost 30 YEARS to develop the SOFTEST, STRONGEST, BETTER-THAN-COTTON fabric. ALMOST 300 OF THEM DIED.
