Girls knickers

I think it is time that manufacturers made girls knickers, mainly age 2 to at least 8years, full size instead of Bikini briefs. I am fed up of my grandchildren showing bare backs because their pants are so short in the body that their vests will not stay in, resulting in their backs getting cold, not good for the kidneys.
What do others think please?

ok well, obviously there is no danger of kidneys getting cold. They are inside the body and temperature is controlled from within. A thin layer of cotton makes no difference whatsoever.

But of course you were joking about that.

On the issue of little girls pants being little more than thongs, I agree. They should be far more substantial.

If I scratch my arse, I need to wee.

I've had kidney problems and I love a big pair of knickers to keep them tucked in and warm smile

Big knickers are a treat.

Clearly a hairy handed trucker with small bollocks...hence the sweaty peas. QED.

My sister once complained that she couldn't find knickers to cover my niece's nappy. I still fail to understand why you would need knickers if wearing a nappy.

This thread reminds me of an old Victoria Wood sketch [shows age] in which Julie Walters was playing a slightly bonkers woman who pointed out that a friend had 'just got over that chill on her kidneys'.
Although being cold can lower the immune system's ability to fight infection, I'm not sure that the kidneys themselves are particularly vulnerable!
Am guffawing at 'you do know the kidneys are located on the inside of the body?' . Hahaha.

I prefer knickers to cover both sets of cheeks. I don't want to get cold gums.

I like Gap knickers for my dds. They are comfy come in both plain and patterned style, a sensible kidney covering size and nice thick material that lasts.
