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?

Should also add i have tried buying a bigger and smaller size.

try a different style?

Low rise knickers might be better, M&S do multipacks. also (at the risk of sounding rude) are you sure you're wearing the right size? Try a size up.

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!!

What style of pants do you wear?

i keep trying different styles, and if i go any bigger they are baggy in the arse.

i'm an apple shape too.

Have tried shorts, high legs, minis, and those brazilian pants.

Granny pants it is then!

Granny pants are nice and cosy.

I think I might go back to grannies too,as I can't ind anything comfy nowdays. I have a large pouch too Maybe they should make some `pouch pants' for us lot.

yy sloggies

Indeed sloggi are the way to go.

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?

Another vote for Sloggi(I get Sloggi high legs as don't like the seam in the full briefs). I will never go back to M&S now that I've discovered them!

I like the ones in m&s that are proper knickers (none of that thong rubbish) but with string sides. They sit below my "pouch" and don't look frumpy :-)
