Where do you buy your everyday pants?

My pants/ knicker drawer is looking rather empty after chucking anything that was too big/ old/ saggy/ grim. blush

Where's best for buying simple, cotton, everyday pants?
I used to do M&S but the last set were rubbish- poor quality, thin and not-very-elastic elastic! hmm

Thanks! smile

I only buy everday pants. M&S or Primark.

Sainsbury's ones are lovely. Nice and soft. Longer lasting than primark too.

Gap pants are fab. M&s are terrible these days.

I'm currently loving some I got in Asda, I found if I bought the ones 'with lycra' they fit really well and are v comfy.

The downside is having to buy size 20. Yes, size 20. I'm a 14 in everything else.

Debenhams pants for me and they last ages

MrsRobertDuvallHasRosacea Sun 30-Sep-12 13:39:46

Debenhams no vpl

I like M&S, just their bog standard multipack jobs

primark - their short like pants are great kinda hold you in a bit and last for ages you can also get similar briefs high and low legged
think they were about 4 pairs for a few quid

When I was a teenager with a tiny bum my Primark pants were size 16-18 , I was mortified.

The eternal quest for decent pants.

Recently I got some in H&M, 95% cotton, 5% elastane, sort of a shorts shape, so no vpl, not too old lady looking (no offence intended) and comfy! Buy at least one size up. Probably 2. They will be a bit bit big the first time you wear, but they shrink in the first wash. I bought 14, they were fine, but since washing a bit snug. And whatever you do, don't buy the Divided label there, they are for teeny-pert-bottomed 16 year olds.

I bought a multipack of lace trimmed Brazilians from Sainsbury and they were as good as M&S.Ditto,the Matalan ones that are 3 for 6 pounds at the moment.

sausagesandwich34 Sun 30-Sep-12 13:49:23

I get them from Asda

found the high legs/boxers the sizing is bang on

minis are are as described -tiny!

kaumana Sun 30-Sep-12 14:09:28

Went undie shopping yesterday and bought Brazillian no vpl from M&S, mix and match 3 for £10. Very happy with them.

I saw some nice cheapy ones in BHS the other day but put them back as I know they won't fit.

I wore that sort for years before finding Sloggis. I only get sloggis now. Seriously.

But I never get them unless they're in a very drastic sale!! There's some on Brand Alley at the moment.

EdMcDunnough Sun 30-Sep-12 15:29:55

btw I think I just have an odd shaped arse.

I've got about 16 pairs of Sloggis on order blush

They do last ages

and always buy in a size or two bigger than normal, it allows for shrinking and also they come up tiny.

daisydoodoo Sun 30-Sep-12 16:10:52

Best ones have been m&s lace trimmed ones on the 3 for £10 range. I buy one size bigger as I like them quite high on my stomach.
I brought some more expensive per una ones at £7.50 a pair and they are terrible and fall down all day.

Have given up on M&s now. Nothing lasts like it should do.
