My daughter is 8, tall and of solid build but not overweight... She always, despite what brand, size or style I buy, suffers with 'wedgies' and spends half her life adjusting her knickers.
Any tips?

Could you try the ones that are like shorts? Or try a ladies size 6? They may have more coverage on the bum.

Hi Lithlingo smile my daughter who is 6 always had the same problem until I was introduced by a friend to Hanes girls underwear. They are sold in stores in America however you can buy them online on Amazon U.K. They are brilliant and we haven't had any problems with public wedgie removals ever since!! grin

Thanks for the reply, tried the shorts even up to aged 11/12, same issue as pants. May go for ladies', that's a good call.
She plays a few team sports (football/netball/basketball) and when I go and watch she's forever fixing her knickers! It's embarrassing!

I'll check out Hanes, thanks very much! Off to get some now!

So, the pants arrived and they are great! Wish I'd bought more!

Perhaps you could send some to Nadal, he seems to have the same problem!!
