the perfect knickers...

So pre baby i used to like the seamfree style knickers - mini or short style, lacy or smooth. Didn't create bulges on the seams and looked pretty.
Problem is since baby I seem to only be able to wear cotton, otherwise after a few hours its a bit whiffy and not pleasant. (Have checked with GP and I don't have a full on infection but apparently my balance of bacteria isn't what it used to be.)
So here's problem - I've bought various cotton multipacks from M&S, supermarkets etc. but they just aren't as nice - they either seem to cause bulges or fall down.
Can anyone recommend nice cotton knickers they've bought that are like a seamfree style and/or flattering?
thanks

Have you tried the M&S seam free no VPL full briefs? I think that's what they're called in a pack of 4/5 I've just discovered them during my pregnancy and finding them greatsmile

As well as the pants, you might want to try addressing the issue with some of these: www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Balance-Activ-BV-Vaginal-Pessaries-7/321749224519?_trksid=p2141725.c100338.m3726&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20141212152715%26meid%3D68c2876ba2924a2984749de80289854f%26pid%3D100338%26rk%3D8%26rkt%3D27%26sd%3D161600860182

You can use one a week for 'maintenance', very useful if you have an IUD or something else that can throw your vaginal PH out of whack.

Thank you - i knew there would be an answer on mumsnet! I like the look of the Italian ones - not cheap but maybe worth an experiment! But do I go there after trying the m&s/John lewis/sloggi options... decisions!

I second the sloggi option, very comfortable, but not that glam sadly, smile
