Now that I've got a baby (dd is 4 months) I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time sitting cross legged on various floor or crawling about on all fours. I've been living in my maternity jeans but would really like to wear skirts and dresses especially whilst it's hot. I would like to do this without being in constant fear of flashing my unkempt bikini line. I thought the solution would be shorts style knickers but having bought some from M&S they seem to be more like the 'midi knickers' my mother is fond of. I was hoping for something which came further down the thigh. Do any of you know where I might source such items or do you have an alternative solution? Thanks!
I have some Calvin Klein shorts which I got in the sale and they are great. Word of warning though I bought some cheapie ones that were 100% synthetic, it was a hot day and I sweated so much and I was wearing light coloured trousers it looked like I had an "accident"........
I favour a completely covered bum cheek and my pants of choice are from uniqlo. Two pairs for £9.95 so not mega cheap but they are big! And they don't look like bloomers. Highly recommended if you like your pants to the thighs
Thanks! Will give those black spade numbers a go Murinea; they are 95% cotton so should avoid an incident of the type zara mentioned. They do, however, have a 'towelling gusset' which may take some getting used to!
Uniqlo don't seem to do the double pack any more and the only non patterned numbers are grey.
Art a fair point but I don't own anything above knee length and maxi dresses/skirts I find hazardous on stairs.
I find women's boxers expose just as much bum cheek as any other knicker. I just buy men's tight boxers. They're very comfortable and bottom covering and you won't get VPL as they sit under the buttock curve. And you can get all sorts of fun patterns. I need to get some more actually, I used to wear them mainly for martial arts, as high kicking in a lacy thong is not recommended!
