I am so cross. Went to M&S to treat myself to a new 5 pack of practical black midi knickers in a large size grin What do I find - racks and racks of size 14 in every style but no sensible black knickers for me. So I thought I'd go off piste and buy something frivalous - but the same problem. Size 14 in abundance and naff all for anybody else. Then I saw the brazilians...not just thongs, thongs for the brazilian beareres amnongst us - a whole wall of the blithering things - in size 14. So what I want to know is - where is the size 14 woman that gets all the good pants?

surely it means there are no size 14 women where you live? thats all the leftovers?

It's me. I go and buy size 14 knickers from M&S just to enjoy the banks of frustrated other-sized women staring hopelessly at the racks.

I meant to add wink. I do have other things to do.

There are no many to be left overs. It's a deliberate conspiracy of over ordering just to annoy me. After a hard week at work and accompanied as I was but dd2, fresh from her farm trip with school and therefore lugging half a ton of fresh veg, it was all I could do to stop myself plucking the arm of an assitant and saying 'What's a woman of my rubenesque proportions supposed to wear if she doesn't want her arse sliced in two by a piece of lace'

But I was scared I'd be arrested restrained myself

They won't feel it if you do twang their knicker elastic. All that hot wax will have destroyed the nerve endings in their skin and numbed their pudendae (pudendas?)

<<faints at though of hot wax and nerve endings>>

<<revives because am still cross>

I just don't get it - even if you have the afore mentioned topiary why do you need special knickers - you can still wear your old ones can't you? Why does M&S need a whole wall of things? <<stamps foot>> Why? Am I missing something here and is the Brazilian now alarmingly common? Or worse - will Labour be making it obligatory by 2015?

Its the same as all the D+ cup women who M & S seem to think would like extra padding hmm

MrsGhoulofGhostbourne Fri 02-Oct-09 17:58:57

NL - don't get me started - since M& S stopped their order instore I have stopped bothering to shop there - used to be you'd go in - they'd only have desirabne item in size 22 and size 8 and so you could order it in 14 ( yep, that's me grin). Now you can't, so they lose out.

MrsGhoulofGhostbourne Fri 02-Oct-09 18:00:28

Oh, and I forgot to say - the reason is that we size 14 brazilian women don't wear knickers, so they will never sell...

i do want extra padding in my booby wrappers - its instead of breast pads.

i always find only size 8 and size 16 fanjo bandannas in M & S - so maybe all them size 4 biyatches live near me?

StealthPolarBear Fri 02-Oct-09 18:07:13

hangon, so M&S sell knickers called "Brazilian" (like Mini/midi/high leg) and they are for women with that erm hairdo?
So are the others all related to your ladygarden too? Have the women in M&S been sniggering at the fact that I'm a "full" at the moment??

Stealthpolarbear yes, I'm wearing my new M&S 'Brian Blesseds' today grin

FlamingoBingo Fri 02-Oct-09 18:20:41

I like extra wrapping in my bras - stops the frustratingly embarrasing ENS suffered by the big-of-nipple [blush[.

FlamingoBingo Fri 02-Oct-09 18:22:35

grin @ grumpy

I have a new pack of 'cousin its' I'm looking forward to trying.

FlamingoBingo Fri 02-Oct-09 18:23:16

And WTF did I mean by 'extra wrapping in my bras'??? hmm I think it's meant to be 'extra padding'.

FabBakerGirlIsSURVIVED Fri 02-Oct-09 18:25:57

Those are nice herbietea but do you have to have a Brazilian wax to wear them? Who is going to check????

Smithagain Fri 02-Oct-09 18:40:57

It's a fundamental law. Whatever size you are will be the one that has sold out.

I used to think it was size-ist (never having the big sizes). Then I lost three stone - and ta-dah! they never had the small sizes either hmm.

StealthPolarBear Fri 02-Oct-09 18:41:03

pmsl at the Brian Blesseds and Cousin Its!
Can I throw in a ZZ Top?

Actually I think that all pants are becoming one size, and that size is 14.

I did lose some weight last year but I've stayed the same weight for about 9 months now and I bought new knickers. Size 18s just fell down. I was pleasantly surprised and bought some size 16s, which also fell down. hmm I'm now wearing some very comfy size 14s which are a little roomy. There is no way that I'm a 14, which is why I think that size 14 must now be cut to fit up to about a 20.

Northernlurker Sat 03-Oct-09 08:20:11

hmm let me think shall I try to fit in to a 14 then?


Maybe not!

Perhaps I should branch out from midi though. Full briefs are like arapping your torson in a insulated lining though and high legs are not so much high legs as high-cut-you-up-the-backside. Bikinis - no definately not and thongs - don't make me laugh! What are those short things like for comfort?

Northernlurker - they are ok unless you have a bit of a belly like me which then hangs over the top blush not a good look
