Girls knickers

I think it is time that manufacturers made girls knickers, mainly age 2 to at least 8years, full size instead of Bikini briefs. I am fed up of my grandchildren showing bare backs because their pants are so short in the body that their vests will not stay in, resulting in their backs getting cold, not good for the kidneys.
What do others think please?

Least I know its not my mum but only cos mine don't wear vests. Nice long jumpers is my answer so it doesn't matter.

I think Boden's big thick pants were rated by a poster on here. So much so they were handed them down several times to younger siblings & cousins. I would guess such large/thick hate to say absorbent would provide ample kidney insulation.

We must demand that retailers only stock polo neck knickers!

Kidneys? You are nuts.

H&M or pretty much any high street chain will sell you cheap practical pants for children. I genuinely don't see the problem (and I have all kinds of other gripes with the high street). Also, still giggling at the kidneys.

If your grandkids' backs are cold, maybe buy them a jumper or a thermal vest.

Asda sell big pants.

I tuck DDs vest in her pants, she will get a draught otherwise, doesnt everyone get tucked in? confused

MummyDuckAndDuckling Thu 17-Oct-13 21:48:01

grin Polo neck knickers!

You could always cover their lower backs in goose fat, wrap in brown paper & tie with string, before adding pants & vest. That certainly protects the kidneys.

Even the Next knickers are so skimpy in the crutch they might as well be things. DD2 (3) is wearing the age 5-6 ones that didn't cover DD1's 6 yo Crutch!

Thongs, not things, blasted auto correct

reelingintheyears Thu 17-Oct-13 21:52:47

The kidneys do need looking after.

I like them devilled.

Are you really a granny talking about little girls knickers?
Or are you a hairy hander talking about little girls knickers?

reelingintheyears Thu 17-Oct-13 21:55:43

I always thought thongs went between one's toes.

Like with flip flops.

I nearly bought 3yo DD boy pants the other day. They're bigger, the elastic is totally encased which must be more comfy and she's really into Batman right now smile

Mothercare pants are cut nicely imo.

mrsjay Thu 17-Oct-13 22:07:00

anyway you can get proper pants for little girls just must be their mum who buys those ones you dont approve of

hobnobsaremyfave Thu 17-Oct-13 22:07:08

When I were a lass <hums Hovis ad tune> I remember my aunt buying my sister and I a pair of knickers each for Christmas. They came to our arm pits. I was about 6 and my sister was about 8 but I can remember laughing for ages about them!

Well as a grandma I agree. A chill on the kidneys is very nasty and to be avoided at all costs smile
