To want to wear big knickers all the time

Hello there!

Well ladies, my other half (English) - I'm Dutch - says only his Mum and other 'old women' wear these! Found it crazy to say the least as he says he hates me wearing them. I always buy white M&S ones. So AIBU or not?wink

I'll let you ladies decide!

Yanbu, life is too short for uncomfortable knickers! Plus they're less likely to show VPL.

ShatnersBassoon Thu 28-Mar-13 18:58:10

YANBU. He's a barefaced liar.

How big are his pants? I bet he has full bum coverage, the selfish swine.

Crawling Thu 28-Mar-13 18:59:25

YANBU I only wear small knickers if im on a night out.

josine32 Thu 28-Mar-13 19:00:39

Thanks so far ladies! Well he wears boxers so pretty big I would say!

Lueji Thu 28-Mar-13 19:02:29

How big are they, though?

Tell him you'll start wearing small knickers (or does he mean thongs?) when he wears these

grin

Wear whatever is comfortable, I'm liking my low rise shorts from M&S latey. but some days I like my granny knickers, so long as they don't poke out the back of my jeans.
Buy him some of those awful tiny mens bikini things and tell him he now has to wear them all the time he'll change his tune.

ParmaViolette Thu 28-Mar-13 19:05:44

Of course YANBU, you can wear whatever you want. IMO I'd feel a bit frumpy wearing pack of 5 underwear all of the time, but it's not for him to dictate to you what to wear!

But if he likes to look good for you (and I hope he's not a grotty holey dirty bloke who still thinks its a women's job to look pretty) and you do want to please him when you're undressing- you can still have comfy and pretty.

I have lots of full coverage pairs in nude, black and white with pretty bows, entire lace backs and little frills on the legs. M&S is usually good for pretty practical knickers.

But if he makes no effort for you, I wouldn't be going lingerie shopping any time soon.

Don't scroll to the bottom of that page, though.

You have been warned.

Toasttoppers Thu 28-Mar-13 19:05:50

I think you should go out and buy the biggest knickers you can and a girdle and start wearing bed socks in bed.

Toasttoppers Thu 28-Mar-13 19:07:30

Lueji, you made me scroll to the bottom of the page!

Yanbu. I accidentally bought a pack of massive pants. They are so comfy, I don't think I can go back. grin

SoMuchToBits Thu 28-Mar-13 19:10:11

Big pants rule! They are so comfortable and don't pinch you in the wrong places. And FGS most of the time no-one is going to see them, and if you are going to get undressed you might as well whip the whole lot off!

Lueji Thu 28-Mar-13 19:10:55

Toast. <shakes head>

shock

That was not my intention at all. grin

Varya Thu 28-Mar-13 19:11:22

Big pants or thongs just where what you like and feel comfortable in.

Mrsrobertduvall Thu 28-Mar-13 19:15:50

I love big pants.
I have big pant shopping moments twice a year, when I replace my 12 nude and black no vpl big pants with identical ones.
There is no room for frothy little numbers in my knicker drawer.

Similarly I have 3 nude and 3 black seamless bras. I do have some very pretty Empreinte and Prima Donna bras, but they are too lacy to wear under most of my toos.

Mrsrobertduvall Thu 28-Mar-13 19:16:16

tops

mumofweeboys Thu 28-Mar-13 19:19:26

I gey sucked into big pants every pregnancy for at least a year after birth as they are so comfy. I the usual move onto shorts or bikini briefs so still quite big lol

Angelico Thu 28-Mar-13 19:21:43

I nearly started this identical thread about a week ago shock Got some M&S belly warmers in advance of my CS and can't quite give them up even though DD is 6 months blush I did buy some lace-topped high legs a couple of weeks ago so at least it was a reluctant step in the right direction wink

Psh, your fanjo=your choice of wrapper.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 28-Mar-13 19:25:54

Had to back on the site to scroll to the bottom of the page...totally worth it grin

BabyMakesTheBellyGoRound Thu 28-Mar-13 19:31:09

I love big knickers. Don't know or care what dh thinks of my knickers.

Lueji Thu 28-Mar-13 19:31:27

Or check any other of the following 2 pages, actually. blush

grin

I need some brew

Regarding knickers, I don't wear thongs. End of.
(unless with the specific purpose of removing within the following 5 min)

NuhichNuhaymuh Thu 28-Mar-13 19:32:03

You also made me scroll to the bottom Lueji You are awful <shakes head>

I agree if he's wearing boxers nowt wrong with equally sized pants. If he thinks you should be in a thong tell him to start wearing penis gloves....

louisianablue2000 Thu 28-Mar-13 19:32:43

Tell him they areen't big pants, they are shorts. Just like he's wearing.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 28-Mar-13 19:32:59

Oh, so now I've got to go back to the site... <sigh>

Lovecat Thu 28-Mar-13 19:33:57

I scrolled.

WTF are those straps all about? DH only wears boxers, I feel like I've delved into a whole other world of men's undies looking at those... contraptions!

FarBetterNow Thu 28-Mar-13 19:34:20

One hot day (long ago), I decided to go to work wearing silk french knickers under a flowing skirt.
I thought they would be airy and comfortable.
By lunchtime they were cutting me in half so much that I took them off, (in the loo).
But even being knickerless was not as comfy as my big sloggis that just have one seem at the back.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 28-Mar-13 19:34:37

Oh my!! blush

bedmonster Thu 28-Mar-13 19:39:10

Oh YANBU, another one here who got sucked into the big M&S pants (just high leg brief types but full bum coverage, they don't have that massive tummy panel thing) and now can't go back!
I have loads of pretty, sexy, glamorous, knickers for various occasions, or if i'm going out, just cos I like getting dressed up, but the majority of the time, i'm in my sensible pants. Nothing quite like 'em. Thongs are a complete mystery to me. I wore them as a teen as that was what everyone did confused but there wasn't much of a purpose to them apart from discomfort.

Lueji Thu 28-Mar-13 19:59:47

I think for the most part those jockstraps things are not used by the type of men that we (women) would go to bed with... IYSWIM.
But I could be wrong, of course...

ooer Thu 28-Mar-13 20:22:30

YANBU. Big pants rock. What is wrong with wanting that degree of comfort all the time? [I also don't wear pointy-toed shoes!]

LetMeAtTheWine Thu 28-Mar-13 20:28:45

I scrolled too. Now my eyes hurt wink

Noren Thu 28-Mar-13 20:29:00

Start wearing boxers! They are great.

iZombie Thu 28-Mar-13 20:30:36

I like big knickers. They're my bum cheeks and if I want them warm then it's my decisiongrin

OrangeLily Thu 28-Mar-13 20:36:06

Wear what you want but you can get comfy thing too. I generally wear comfy thongs and don't have any issues with them but they have to be cotton.

I can kind of see his point because I like DH in nice tight boxers because he has a very good arse and don't like when he wears other stuff. He used to have a few old man loose boxers but they've gone.

WillYouDoTheBunnyHop Thu 28-Mar-13 20:44:52

Today is my first day in french knickers since DS was born 14 weeks ago. I'm going back to the belly warmers tomorrow grin
