Best underwear style to avoid vpl?

Says it all really.

Thinking of everyday wear rather than full on spanx style. Don't want to spend a fortune but I do want a better profile under dresses.

Have a hefty (size 16) bottom.

Pretty they aint, but my current faves are these as no vpl and a nice control without being impossible to wear

I like M&S brazillians

I've tried shorts before and not really got on with them. However I have only ever bought cheap. Does m&s make a difference?

The brazillians don't look comfy in the pic but will go instore and have look.

These are good and have no VPL and they are comfy for size 16s grin

Go commando.

Or have a look at the M&S styles, which are indeed lovely (and sexy believe it or not)

The Brazilians look v pretty, but don't they go right up your crack? Sorry to be vulgar ...

Sloggi Basics.

These are fab and cheap and don't disappear up your bum

Nah, don't have to fish brazilians out of my nethers very often and I find them very comfy. Though I used to always wear miniscule thongs so it's all relative I suppose.

PrimaBallerina Sun 23-Oct-11 18:51:08

They don't go up mine. I'm a fan, I don't really like the feel of thongs and only wear them occasionally as DH likes them.

Thanks! My best ever knicks and bras were bought at Monoprox in France after I realised I had failed to pack any underwear at all for a fortnight's holiday. The knickers don't creep at all and I am keen to replace them with something equally comfy.

Bluestocking Sun 23-Oct-11 19:13:59

Monoprix, even ...

Haha I did the exact same thing this summer, packed us all off to France for a fortnight, remembered everything except any spare knickers for me and ended up doing a lightening dash to monoprix in Auxerre. I needed some new undies anyway, and they aren't bad, but it would be a long way to go to get any more...
