To wonder if I'm getting old...

I'm a massive fan of some big comfy pants. Like I swear they actually bring me joy.

My underwear drawer is full to the brim so today I thought I should just throw everything out & just keep all of my big granny pants, and just one pair of lacies for 'special occasions'

Tell me straight, I'm turning into my nan aren't I?

Embrace the comfort.

I love a big pant!

How big a pant? My gran wore bloomers, I've a photo from about 1967 where you can see them... grin

I love my seamless shorts from Primark, I must have about 20 pairs of them.

I've got a couple of pairs of sexy pants but nothing beats my shorts.

Haha if they were a bit more snug then I probably would!
I'm talking almost up to the belly button big pants, like big Bridget jones ones but just cotton so they're not squeezing me in, heaven

I wouldn't even bother with the token lacies so you are doing better than me!

I'm 22 and just bought 9 pairs of comfy big gap pants ... my bum deserves comfort

I love the big pants.

Sloggis. Maxi pants. In a size bigger than you normally take. You will thank me.

Autocorrect tried to turn that into Slobbish ( no, just comfy )

JonSnowsWhore Sat 08-Apr-17 00:17:26

I can't see the lacies being worn any time in the near future!

Oh it's great, I go out big pant shopping if mine are getting too shabby. Now I'm pregnant I buy bigger sizes to get them even further up my belly grin

Ooh I like the m&s ones, little bit classier than my cotton primark ones. Fancy big pants

Oh yes I love having pants up to my waist, I feel they give off a coquettish, 1950's vibe wink Well that's what I tell myself.

JonSnowsWhore Sat 08-Apr-17 00:25:49

I don't think my OH sees them that way Darla 😂

I love my apple catchers too.

I'm not spending 15/20 quid anymore on matching my knickers to my bra just for 12 quids worth to be stuck in the crack of my arse.

Pants are like shoes. If they are not comfortable it will be shown on your face.

elephantoverthehill Sat 08-Apr-17 00:33:10

Sorry, it will be shown by lines on your face.

JonSnowsWhore Sat 08-Apr-17 00:36:55

That is so true, I can't stand the uncomfortableness of small pants. Bits hanging over the edge, rolling down etc. Just tuck it all in some nice massive pants & feel comfortable all day

I only wear multi-pack cotton briefs. I guess I just wore them through childhood and it's never occurred to me to buy anything else! grin

I have the old c-section overhang hmm so teeny-tiny sexy pants are invisible pointless.

You don't find me sexy in M&S Sensible Pants? You ain't ready for this jelly.

elephantoverthehill Sat 08-Apr-17 00:41:01

They have got to be made from natural fibres only though, whatever the size of pantage.

shitgibbon Sat 08-Apr-17 00:41:03

Life's too short to wear uncomfortable underwear.

I only own big knickers and don't plan on changing.

JonSnowsWhore Sat 08-Apr-17 00:47:30

Loving that I'm not alone in this!

TheElephantofSurprise Sat 08-Apr-17 00:52:53

Sshhh..... shapewear...

elephantoverthehill Sat 08-Apr-17 00:56:58

Two Elephants may be going into battle now. Surprise Elephant are you suggesting what I would call 'push me pull me' type pants?

TheElephantofSurprise Sat 08-Apr-17 01:07:02

Big pants, tight pants, full of delight pants...

Ah, Hill Elephant, if you like your knickers loose and dangly that's just fine, but if not, check out Primark's excellent range of tighter than tight shapewear. grin
