I got some new smalls from Sainsburys the other night. Washed and dried them and looked forward to wearing them today (been in maternity pant hell for too long) but I can't tell which way round they go.
They feel ok both ways, all I can conclude is I should have got size 12...

AIBU to think they should put the label at the back to avoid confusing people like me?

Noooo. I hate hate hate labels in underwear. They really irritate me and when they are sewn into the seam I end up cutting a hole in the knickers when trying to get the label off.

Is there a label?

My labels are all on the left.

I wouldn't know. I only have six pairs for that time of month.

On the left? I'll try that. The legs say one way but the waistband says the other. I suppose I can't complain for £4 for 5 pairs really...they're much nicer than m&s ones.

This morning DS1 said to me, 'Mummy there's a massive bit for your bum in the back of your pants'...

Think as long as they feel comfortable it doesn't really matter which way round you wear them??? PS Just checked own smalls & labels def on the left too if that means anything !

M&S don't have labels in some of their pants/bras. The details are printed on - much better....

All my pants have labels on the left.

If the were in the back, the label would end up going up your bum crack!

I hate labels in pants - they all get cut out very carefully using nail scissors

BarbecuedBillygoats Fri 16-Nov-12 21:26:15

Just a thought the tops I bought from sainsburies have them printed on. Is there any small print?

all the labels in my knickers are on the left, all the labels in DH's boxers are on the right. like buttons.

On the left definitely smile

Labels on the left - it's how I've taught DD to put on her pants as they only seem to put bows on the front of half the pants in a pack for some reason hmm

You learn summat new every day!

Oh yes, labels on the left. And also some kind of decoration on the front.

Hellooooo ! Tidy
Had any takeaways lately grin

Runs to check knickers - prefer no labels but it causes a problem if DD 6-8 pants get in my drawer - am 12-14 !

Girls pants-bows at the front. Boys pants - spiderman or bob the builder at the front. Them'a the rules.

oopslateagain Fri 16-Nov-12 22:33:00

All my thongs knickers have the label on the left. All, that is, except for 3 pairs from a multipack which all have the label on the fecking right. Meaning that at stupid-oh-clock in the morning when I've got half an eye open I end up with a front wedgie.

Now, that wakes you up pretty damn quick.

AlanMoore Fri 16-Nov-12 22:50:02

I checked, the label is to the left...they are just very very high at the front compared to the back, iyswim. I do have a big JLo style (if she was a fat northern woman) arse though.

Takeaways, MrsBaggins?! What I done/missed/forgotten?!

Columbo solved a murder once because he noticed that the body was wearing pants with their label on the right hand side.
