this is no laughing matter - my knickers keep rolling down, have checked with a couple of friends and they have this trouble too, we have all had 3 children, but are all different shapes and sizes, but we all have that left over mummy pouch.
Do i need those granny pants that come up over the belly button? not wanting those tummy sucking pants, they gave me belly ache. Any suggestions?
pmsl I have this too! Not with all of my pants, but here are the circumstances that lead to me having pant-roll-syndrome. 1.I am an apple shape so tummy naturally sticks out 2. Wearing those 'boy-shorts' type pants. 3. when the pants in question are slightly too small and finally 4. all of the above combined with the fact I am water-retaining just before a period!!
Possibly granny-style is the way to go; you can cut out eyeholes to look out if you pull them up really tight.
Sizing's the thing. When I was last in the UK I found M& S size 12 knickers to be too big - no - I am not a size 10, but their size 10 was a little snug. Comparing them to some original size 12s, I can see they're doing that thing of making us all feel slim by upping the sizes but not the label.
It's like shopping at Target in Oz, which I do for gym-type stuff, I can drop a size just by buying their clothes. What's not to like?
