COTTON no VPL knickers?

Why are these so hard to find? There are massive ones at M&S and teenyweeny ones at Topshop - ideally I'd like briefs/shorts-style ones - these are the best I've found but look at the price!

Anyone seen any reasonably-priced ones in a comfortable-but-not-grannyish style anywhere? I would've thought everybody needed these!!

Oh Thanks OP...I like cotton knickers but so many have zigzaggy elastic which irritates I had looked at VPL (so no nasty elastic on the legs) but they tend not to be cotton..

The granny pants will do me fine

M & S do their no VPL cotton/modal knickers in high leg, Brazilian, bikini and short-style as well as granny pants. confused

Thanks MrsS - I did a good search on M&S but couldn't find shorts-style cotton pants with no VPL

Maybe not helpful, but I have some from Carrefour. They are briefs but not massive. They are cheap at 12€ for 5 pairs and totally invisible even under the tightest or flimsiest trousers in any lighting. I bought them last month. So if you're on holiday over here any time soon have a look in your nearest Carrefour. (The manufacturer is Tex).

I put vpl in m and s and got loads of options..?

Ahhh just realised the 'cotton' that you are also looking for.... Sorry!

I have these
I also have the big cotton full briefs in your op. They're comfy but do give me vpl and I think look unflattering under jeans. The lace shorts are far better and more comfortable.

Any chance of a link lockedout.? I'm off on to Carrefour tomorrow!

I've had a quick look and can't find but I've never been on Carrefour website before, sorry, it isn't the most comprehensible (to me). They are in a multipack along with all the other ladies' pants in my local store (a medium sized Cf). Sorry not to have found the link.
