one under your tights, and one on top of your tights to stop them falling down, your bum will look bigger?

no, but I think you will get thrush!

TYANBU (technically YANBU) but obviously the bum in question would only look bigger by the thickness of one pair of pants and the tights. I am assuming that one pair of pants would be worn.

The solution is to wear stockings. Much better all round.

can't hold stockings up with knickers though...

but your bum will look smaller. yay.

So if you wear no knickers at all your bum will look smaller?

How thick are your pants? hmm

fourkids Sat 10-Sep-11 18:28:21

M&S thickness

Not much bigger though. It would feel like you're wearing a nappy, but at least your tights will stay up.
I would just buy better tights.

I think if you wear no pants at all, your bum may look smaller, but it might wobble more?

I think if you need to wear knickers on top of your tights to stop them falling off, it's time you considered investing in a new pair of tights!

how saggy are your tights? maybe you need a smaller size!

Anyway, it is fact that most women's bottoms are smaller than they think they are... and most men like curvier bums anyway....

You have to be careful what you post about tights on mumsnet...just saying, like wink

LeBOF, are tights taboo? have I made a faux pas?

I used to know someone who ALWAYS wore their knickers over their tights to stop them falling down. Now, I thought that was a bit hmm, would be very uncomfortable, and probably wasn't very hygienic. But I have been pondering it for a few years and it occurred to me that two pairs might solve the problem...but simply cause another one to do with bum-size...

usualsuspect, I also used to know someone who went commando and I was always concerned when she wore jeans about a pube/zip related incident.

My friend's cousin did this on a night out. She was walking up some stairs, looked down and realised that the outer pair were round her ankles grin

usualsuspect Sat 10-Sep-11 18:38:17

I didn't know tights were taboo on MN

scuzy Sat 10-Sep-11 18:39:33

grin frazzle26 thats hilarious.

i would think alright that that would happen with the shiny layers. you also need to give yourself plenty of notice for the loo no last minute dashing.

plus would you not sweat profusely around there ...

reelingintheyears Sat 10-Sep-11 18:39:44'll get a sweaty fanny.

I always thought wearing knickers over tights was to keep them up because they were too small - not too big.

I just get extra large size tights and pull them under my armpits. It keeps everything in it's place grin

TrillianAstra Sat 10-Sep-11 18:49:15

How thick are your knickers? Mine are only a few mm, and a few mm on my bum would not be noticeable!

pretty thin mostly, but the crotch and the elasticated areas are significanlty thicker.

Also, I think one must take into account the extra air trapped between the layers.

LeBOF Sat 10-Sep-11 20:07:21

Does nobody remember the Tights Troll then? The perve who had 32 threads or something, going back years, every single one of which was an innocuous question about hosiery...just me then? grin

I remember the Tights enthusiast. Vair dedicated, IIRC
