What the hell? Orthopedic underwear? (lol spoilers sort of)

#1ArcherFish1989Posted 8/29/2008 6:47:06 PM
So after so many years of playing this game (but never getting much farther than the end of disc one) the mysterious "orthopedic underwear" you find in tifa's house during the flashback bugged me enough to actually look up orthopedic, because I slept during english class the day the teacher taught us that word. here's what I found:

orˇthoˇpeˇdics Listen to the pronunciation of orthopedics
Variant(s):
also orˇthoˇpaeˇdics Listen to the pronunciation of orthopaedics \-ˈpē-diks\
Function:
noun plural but singular or plural in construction
Date:
circa 1853

: a branch of medicine concerned with the correction or prevention of deformities, disorders, or injuries of the skeleton and associated structures (as tendons and ligaments)

So...does Tifa have some sort of deformed pelvis...or something? And how the hell is underwear going to prevent/fix a friggin bone deformity? Uh....Final Fantasy...

Underwear can mean anything normally worn under some other clothing. So orthopedic underwear could just be a knee brace.

COMBINE THE PREVIOUS TWO POSTS!

Clearly it's a bra that helps her with her, uh, back problems. Yeah.

The answer is simple, TC.




Say what you want, but for me, TC stands for Tifa's Chest.

Any woman with a chest as big as Tifa's will have serious back trouble.

It's actually a pair of "slightly stretched" panties, not orthopedic underwear. And they are pink.

Ah, FF7 International. The things you show us, like the skin mags Cloud can find in Junon.

The way I understood it, Cloud was taking liberties with the story and "wrote in" that part about the orthopedic underwear, just to tease Tifa as he talked.

^ Apparently not. The slightly stretched Panties are as real as the smut elsewhere in game, or the Lustful Lali-Ho and Ninja Sutras in FFIV, and Cloud does steal them.
