I want some nice big pants

Just that really. They need to be comfy, not hideously frumpy, and high on the waist because I had a c section 11 months ago and I still can't bear to have knickers sitting on the scar. Where does everyone get their pants from?

Marks and Spencer, of course.

Sainsburys. I accidentally bought the huge, high waisted ones a couple of years ago and they were so comfy I've bought more packs since. They're about a fiver for five.

Marks and Spencer's with added Lycra for stayupability.

I picked up a 5 pack in waitrose. A tenner I think.

M&S - they actually do some nicer high waisted ones - if you get the individually sold ones they have lacy bits and imo aren't that frumpy. I started wearing them for the same reasons as you, that was 5 years ago now. I wear nothing else now and can't believe I was ever comfy in tiny pants. grin

I second Sainsbury's.

I've got the high leg ones which are really good quality. They do the high waisted ones too.

M&S. I bought them to wear during pregnancy and have kept them as they go over my C section scar.

I've got some lovely teal lace ones from M&S

Right, I'll pop to both m&s and Sainsbury's tomorrow then. Was just worried that m&s was going to be frumptastic but I'm glad that's not the case.

Marks & Spencer. Always.

John Lewis maxis completely cover my belly button. And are comfortable.

M&S, specifically the Brazilians. They are comfy and high-waisted but flatteringly cut on the bum to give a bit of peachiness.

Gap have a range called "body" and do then in shorts and high waisted. Exceptionally comfortable.

I bought some in Sainsbury's at the weekend - just grabbed a five pack as i wanted some bigger ones to prevent chafing at the gym. They are so comfortable I'm totally converted. They were called lace shorts or something like that - not totally ugly but def high enough for c section coverage and bum coverage.

I've always bought M&S big knickers but the quality has gone down in the last few years....the John Lewis ones, proper big knickers, are wonderful but I size down as they are generous!

Debenhams, they have this extra soft fabric that is heavenly, so comfy but still look nice.

Destinysdaughter Mon 24-Apr-17 21:48:22

Ooh I love BJ pants! grin

Debenhams 'invisible' pants (full brief) are really comfortable and soft material.

Cakescakescakes Mon 24-Apr-17 22:30:08

M&s midis

silentpool Mon 24-Apr-17 22:34:45

I agree, M & S midis are great.

QueenMortificado Mon 24-Apr-17 22:37:36

M&S midi are amazing

Ugly as fuck. But my god they're comfortable
