hi all. Am googling and hunting but with no luck so thought I'd consult you lot. Am in urgent need as I am wearing thigh high support stockings (to prevent my new varicose vein growing), which squish thigh out at the top, coupled with my support belt (for spd) which squeezes legs together....resulting in v painful chafing, ouch. I have got a couple of pairs of non-maternity support pants from m&s but I bought size 18 and they're now tight round my bump so don't think they'll last much longer.
I have a friend who had this problem and she bought some 'Comfort shorts' from Evans. Guess a pair of cut off tights might work the same?? I googled them for you and they are £6 on the Evans website in lingerie and then shape wear. x
I remember when v pregnant with dd that knickers just didn't work anymore. Especially as dd engaged early, my bump was low and the dratted things just rolled down. I wore dh's short longjohns, some of his boxers and some leggings that I butchered with the kitchen scissors. Not all at the same time mind.

They stop thighs rubbing and are very stretchy. They don't ride up like cut off leggings would and are breathable which is a must in this weather. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much for all the advice. I have a new look and an evans in my local town so will be checking them both out this week. Yep, the spanx looked good but I seem to be spending so much on hideous underwear at the moment that I couldn't bear to shell out that much.
