Can anyone recommend nice but comfy pants? Sounds ridiculous that I have to ask this in my 30s but I used to love the kind of lace hipster hot pant type ones and lots of other barely there jobs but since having kids only want to wear full coverage cotton m&s granny pants,they may be comfy but i catch sight of myself in the mirror and just feel bleugh. I went to h&m and bought some that I thought looked a similar shape to what i used to like,they would not stay in the right place iykwim and also appeared to have a booklet of labels sewn into each pair.Plus I hate my stretch marks so hipster was not the way to go! I used to like la senza but it got cheaper and cheaper quality and i went off it and now have no idea where to shop or what I'm looking for-help please!confused

Marking place but I think I might try m&s

You want high leg I think. They cover the hips and tum but not too frumpy.. I'll have a little search..

M&s high leg. With lace top. Pack of five for £12 I think. They're lovely. Comfy, fit with a post baby (and section) pouch. But still look a little sexy!

Hmm I m the same since having last DC (no 3) and I m still on the way to losing the baby weight so not willing to spend lots on pants! I have a few primarni Brazilian no seam ones that are nice yet give good coverage

It s a bit trial and error TBH though
I found some nice ones in h and m too but lol at the leaflet sewn in, you re so right!!

I swear by these. I have a lower wrinkly stomach and the sides sit on my hips rather than an overspill..

I have the M&S boy shorts with a lace top. Come in a 5 pack.
They kind of look like a rectangle when you've got them on and keep my overhang tucked in...

I bought the H&M ones too. Came in pack of 5 or 6, I got them in the blues and in pinks. They felt a lot smaller than the advertised size blush very pretty though.
I can't imagine what information they need to include on all those labels though?!

OP I'm mid thirties and can't tolerate anything less than full coverage these days but wear skinny trousers mostly jodhpurs every day so hate VPL. I am wearing these at the moment. No nonsense, full coverage, no adjusting and no VPL. Really soft and comfy. And cheap! Matalan 3 for £7...
