I've just bought 5 pairs of knickers in the La Senza sale and wore one pair today. I spent the day hoiking them out of my bum, then put them in the bin as soon as I got home. hmm

I'm sick of wasting money on knickers that I never wear because they are too uncomfortable. So, tell me, what are your most comfortable pants? I don't do thongs. I don't care what they look like, comfort is paramount!

Can you put them in the recycling bag or a charity bag in their packaging (the unworn ones) rather than in the bin?

Watching with interest, as all my most comfy pants are getting old.

I always size up in knickers - that makes the biggest difference

pepperrabbit Tue 15-Jan-13 20:21:59

Cotton, bikini style, as a minimum M&S quality (not their really cheap packs - just their nearly cheap packs grin).
Had some Asda ones trying to save money - had exactly the same problem as you!

GAP are very comfortable and not granny style. Got a couple pairs in a sale once and love them!

BornToFolk Tue 15-Jan-13 20:23:20

I'm not going to chuck them out without wearing Mintyy, as they are all slightly different styles so I'm hoping a couple will be good. I just had to get rid of the ones I was wearing today as they were like instruments of torture!

I wear big knickers from Asda I can't be doing with frilly flimsy lacy pants.

I buy m&s midi style. They are a bit 'granny pant' but so comfortable. They do them in a multi pack in various colours.

SoYo Tue 15-Jan-13 20:25:00

M&S bikini style with lace top. Ridiculously comfy & look fairly good too (plus still comfy while preggers when nothing else is). Very rarely wear anything else now.

Hanky panky thongs, they only come in one size, soft stretchy lace. They cling without digging in hanky panky

I thought La Senza had gone bust! At least that's what they told me last year when I spent money online with them and the goods never appeared - I didn't get a refund either! angry

usualsuspect Tue 15-Jan-13 20:25:34

Granny pants are the most comfy though.

Monty27 Tue 15-Jan-13 20:28:05

I've got little boxer shorts from Primark, I love them. They're almost like a lycra, although that sounds gross, I'm not sure what they are (will look later) but they are comfy

KerryKetosis Tue 15-Jan-13 20:28:43

oh man y'all need SEAMLESS knickers!

I originally bought them post section, but they are amazing!

Primark, tesco, m&s etc have them and they last really well. Very soft, plain black or white, bikini shape. Kind of like er, I can't explain the material it's some kind of magic fibre, soft and stretchy.

I bet my bum is the comfiest here grin

MrsSalvoMontalbano Tue 15-Jan-13 20:28:56

agree about the sizing up. most comfy ever are primarni thongs in 16-18 (my dress size is 10-12) grin i have a bad appendix scar, so anything with a low waist band - eg shorts style digs in uncomfortably

Mintyy Tue 15-Jan-13 20:29:19

I think the only thing is to go big! Its not glamorous, its not sexy, but it is comfy!

KerryKetosis Tue 15-Jan-13 20:29:55

monty I bet they're the same material that I'm trying to describe! I nearly said like lycra, but didn't because it sounded gross!

I like the naughty shortie types. I used to spend a fortune on Agent Provocateur but now I'm all about comfort.

neontetra Tue 15-Jan-13 20:31:44

Mine are massive.

whatyoulookinat Tue 15-Jan-13 20:32:10

M&s three pairs for £10 black shorts with lace detail & invisible pl.

starfleet Tue 15-Jan-13 20:33:16

Primark boy shorts. I buy them a size bigger than I would usually wear. No seams, no chafing and no riding up anywhere wink and no VPL. They are the best knickers I've worn and so very comfortable.

WildThong Tue 15-Jan-13 20:34:19

these in a size up for everyday/at work. Vair comfy and don't look too 'big pants'

ChablisLover Tue 15-Jan-13 20:34:44

I'll whisper my pants recommendation - sloggi

Only way to go - so comfy

Or Asda boy shorts

BeaLola Tue 15-Jan-13 20:35:01

M&S big knickers - full brief they call them - very very comfy .

Slogi pants

M&S Short style if I size up

BornToFolk Tue 15-Jan-13 20:37:01

I don't usually get on with short style (lots of riding up!) but maybe I'm just not going big enough.

FerrisBueller1972 Tue 15-Jan-13 20:39:11

Agree re Sloggi boxer short style, by far the comfiest and seamless etc, I have so many pairs of expensive stupid knickers that I never wear as they are so uncomfortable confused

landofsoapandglory Tue 15-Jan-13 20:45:18

these. They are so comfy I forget I am wearing them!

Maraki Tue 15-Jan-13 20:49:53

M&S seamless high leg or sloggi thai

White stuff pants are very comfortable, even more so in the sale!

Seamless are the most comfortable.

WowOoo Wed 16-Jan-13 09:17:28

I got some Hudson's for Christmas and they are the most comfortable knickers I have ever owned.
I think they are pricey per pair. But, I have been wearing them (got 4 pairs) all the time. So far washing well also.
I didn't know knickers could be so comfortable.

Jaeme Wed 16-Jan-13 09:50:51

Victoria's Secret cotton lingerie hiphugger and bikini are my everyday comfy undies. Not sure how their prices translate here though as I buy mine when in the US

101handbags Wed 16-Jan-13 10:49:27

Any of the Debenhams 'invisible' shorts - never buy anything in Debenhams, but when I'm passing I alway have to snap up a few more pairs as usually on a 3 for 2.

Cotton M&S bikini pants brought in multipack.
I have other knickers - they never get worn apart from the M&S full briefs - ahem - which get an outing under a frock occasionally.

Life is too short to wear uncomfy knickers.

dontyouwantmebaby Wed 16-Jan-13 10:57:57

another vote for Sloggi seamless knickers here (not the sexiest or the cheapest but they're super comfortable & very well made so keep their shape)

my years of hoiking up uncomfortable knickers are well & truly in the past blush

Floralnomad Wed 16-Jan-13 11:00:18

Sloggi , normal knickers, not remotely sexy but so comfortable and wash well and last ages .I replaced all of my other knickers with them last year .

BornToFolk Wed 16-Jan-13 11:00:20

Life is too short to wear uncomfy knickers

Amen! M&S bikinis seem to be getting lots of votes.

GraduallyGoingInsane Wed 16-Jan-13 11:01:23

I loved the M&S modal shorts. Seriously, incredibly comfy. So comfy that some days I would have a little panic and think I'd forgotten my underwear as it feels like you're not wearing them.

Then M&S in their wisdom decided that plain modal shorts needed sexing up. They now have a panel of lace down both sides, which has knocked the shape off and is scratchy. I am currently in the process of scouring every M&S nearby in the hopes that they still carry the old range so I can stock up.

The new version.

M&S - not ALL pants need sexing up. angry Please bring back my comfy pants.

lifeistooshorttodrinkcheapwine Wed 16-Jan-13 11:15:25

M n S High leg no VPL in a silk stretch material Multi packs

NickECave Wed 16-Jan-13 11:34:21

Debenhams pack of full briefs (ie granny pants), five pairs for about £7. I'm a size 12 but buy size 14. Every January I buy 3 new packs and chuck out last years smile

Twinklestarstwinklestars Wed 16-Jan-13 11:48:45

I got some from m & co they're shorts type ones but lovely and soft and comfy.
