To ask you how many pairs of knickers you have?

Sounds kinky, but really isn't.

My DP says I have an obsession with knickers and I think he has too few pants because as far as I can see he always ends up having a pants crisis and he hurriedly has to put a wash on so that he an have a clean pair to wear. I have 35 pairs of pants. I only had 3 pairs at any one time as a kid and young teenager. One in the wash, one drying, one to wear. Ugh! I get stressed just thinking about it. When I left home, I bought knickers, clean white ones, lots of them so I would never run out of them.

I told my DP I would ask you lot to show that I don't have an obsession. That I have a normal amount. He has 6 pairs, btw.

I have about 10 pairs

MissCellania Tue 18-Dec-12 19:27:09

about 25 maybe, plus a few that I don't wear and should chuck out. DH has about the same.

also this should be in chat

MrsKeithRichards Tue 18-Dec-12 19:27:29

About 15

i must have about 25 too

let's just say it's never a problem packing for a hol - the knicker drawer is always full

Montybojangles Tue 18-Dec-12 19:32:05

About 30. OH far less and always in same boat as yours re pant crisis!

Yoghurty Tue 18-Dec-12 19:33:29

I have:
10 pairs basic black with lace trim everyday knickers

6 matching sets- with 2x matching knickers

5 pairs of 'fancy' knickers (trim/satin/sexy)

3 pairs of BIG pants grin

3 pairs of 'period' pants

= 33 pairs

I have about 18 pairs I think, DH probably has about 25.

Theicingontop Tue 18-Dec-12 19:34:27

Not enough... I honestly never get round to buying them. Maybe I'll treat myself and get some for Christmas blush

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Tue 18-Dec-12 19:34:54

Around 100-120... blush

I like knickers.

PeachTown Tue 18-Dec-12 19:36:38

I have about 100 - I even counted them a few months back so I know. I am a magpie for them and can't resist a pretty new pair when I see them. 35 is very reasonable IMHO.

That fit in now I'm pregnant? About 7. In total - over 50. When I was at uni I had so many I could go for a whole term - 10 weeks - without needing to wash my knickers (although I did wash them I hasten to add) I made my DH buy more pairs for our 3 week holiday as he only had 14 pairs for 21 days shock. When I asked him what he thought he was going to do he didn't seem bothered about wearing the same pair twice... I took him shopping and we bought 6 new pairs (if you do the maths that still leaves 1 day...I never asked which day it was!).

hatgirl Tue 18-Dec-12 19:37:49

loads - too many to count but not all of them fit or are fit to wear!

nokidshere Tue 18-Dec-12 19:38:51

I have no idea - but they fill two drawers in the chest so its probably lots! grin

OttilieKnackered Tue 18-Dec-12 19:40:03

About 60.

Although I still never seem to have ones that are suitable with whatever it is I'm wearing.

SilentMammoth Tue 18-Dec-12 19:47:13

I have four.

I love pretty underwear and will happily pay eighty pounds for bra and knicker set. So I buy one bra, two matching pants in one colour and another set in another colour. I wear a bra two days in a row (judge away) and obv clean pants daily.

I buy two new sets each year because I find bras don't really like washing machines and I really don't have the time to hand wash.

I also hate having more stuff than I need.

Wow, you do like knickers grin

SilentMammoth Tue 18-Dec-12 19:48:09

Just re read that and realised I sound like a control freak.

lljkk Tue 18-Dec-12 19:49:22

About a dozen and that's the minimum I can get by on. Nearly ran out the other day (eek)

MissCellania Tue 18-Dec-12 19:49:47

Four? How can anypne manage with 4 pairs of knickers?

Isabeller Tue 18-Dec-12 19:50:15

Loads. Loads and loads. Including some disgraceful ones I should probably throw out.

DP beats me by a long way though I reckon he has shedloads grin

35 is a very sensible number. divisible by 7. and 5. You could have a bag permanently packed for a two week holiday or other unforseen emergency without any undue loss of service in the knicker department. If there was a world shortage of knickers you would be literally sitting pretty.

Nice knickers are lovely and good for self esteem and all that. Wish we could have a secretniceknickersanta I love the idea of (nice new) knickers winging their way from mumsnetter to mumsnetter around the country...
