I walked into m&s this afternoon with my children in tow, I got what I needed and was walking past the lingerie and thought I'd grab a pack of nultipack cotton bikini knickers.
i obviously hadn't paid attention as when I got home I realised I'd picked up full briefs instead of bikins.
They are massive and yet i don't want to return them as they look so bloody comfy, would I be unreasonable to keep them and wear them?
DH would look at me say what the actual f are you wearing however he is a little too fond of his loose greying boxers that he keeps wearing so often so he can't talk.

Why would you be unreasonable to keep and wear underwear you think looks comfortable?

strawberrysparkle Mon 19-Mar-18 19:05:51

Absolutely not unreasonable. I thought we all had that one grey bra and gross pants that we hide but secretly love really?

His grey boxers mean you are long overdue your comfy pants.

You will never look back

I am a great fan of the big pant.

As per Danny's comment

They are the bomb baby

Nope. I'm onto full briefs after buying them to wear after childbirth. I'm a convert - there's no going back. So comfy!

I almost exclusively wear full briefs. Sometimes I wear men's trunks. I like full arse and belly coverage.

I bought some enormous pants from John Lewis and they are bloody lovely!

I bought big knickers for potential csec scar, they are so comfy, I’m still buying new ones 3 years since last baby.
My DH asked recently if I was gonna wear sexy ones ever again and I pointed out that he’s never worn anything scratchy, up his arse, gussetless etc and I still fancy him! They’re also better with trousers as there’s no bumps on my hips from the seams.

Keep them!

I bought a cheap pack for after my csection on advice of the midwife, DD is now 5 and if it weren't for the fact I've lost too much weight for them to stay up past my knees I'd still be wearing them. Sooo comfy!

I've only recently discovered should style and like them now. Let's face it they're just big knickers with a slightly more flattering cut grin

They keep my tum warm.
They don't crawl up my arse.
They don't roll down at the front.
I love mine.

kaytee because they are absolutely massive and go all the way up my waist, it's not like I've been wearing thongs on a daily basis but I didn't think i was at the 'big pants' point but they look like they'd be amazingly comfy.
Anyway come to think of it im a married mother of 3, who the hell cares what my knickers look like! I'm keeping them!

DSHathawayGivesMeFannyGallops Mon 19-Mar-18 19:13:59

I love big pants and I cannot lie. Don't wear that style every day but my Bridgets are damn comfy. Keep them!

Allthewaves Mon 19-Mar-18 19:14:17

I wear mine during the week when dh works away - bliss

ScreamingValenta Mon 19-Mar-18 19:14:23

They're lovely and warm when it's cold - keep them.

SweetMoon Mon 19-Mar-18 19:14:42

Keep them. I bought some once by mistake like you and I haven't gone back! Sooooooo comfy! Perfect everyday knicks.

Allthewaves Mon 19-Mar-18 19:15:30

My mum brought me them after ds3 - ob fat mums of 3 wear big pants in her view grin. Suprised to discover they are so comfy

I wear Sloggi maxi pants in a size larger than I really need. So comfy. I've been doing this for years. Keep the big pants, your bottom will thank you. In fact, get more. Throw out the skimpies.

I wear the midis almost exclusively. I mostly wear trousers and worry the full brief would peek out the top of my trousers, I feel they are for people who wear dresses.

I bought massive knickers after my c section and I love them lol. My husband gives me 🤨 but frankly I don't care. They have slowly taken over my entire knicker draw 🙈

NurseP Mon 19-Mar-18 19:20:32

Yes! They are definitely keepers! No pulling them out of your bum and nothing hanging over.

My husband regularly jokes about making parachutes out of my pants.

I don’t care. They are amazing.

I also accidentally bought ‘full briefs’ and never looked back.
In fact, they have only got bigger.

SO comfortable.
