White Trousers - just don't

I've been looking at women in white trousers recently.

None of them looked good. I could always make out their knickers, whether it was a thong or whatever. Bum cheeks too detailed for comfort.

A white pair of jeans arrived for me yesterday - slim at top, kick flare- they look bloody great on!

come on, now. I've seen your posts re problems fastening buttons. You can't be the one person to look good in white trews

Gobbledigook Sun 27-Jul-08 21:21:44

Me or the fish? I've made no posts about buttons.

It is unplesant, isn't it whizz.

White jeans if you're skinny, maybe. I suppose I was thinking of thin cotton ones.

I don't get the see-through ones, even on svelte teens.

I have a pair of denim-weight white jeans which do not show anything and I think they are fine. I only wear them sparingly as I want them to stay pristine white.

The Wrong Arse
The Wrong knickers
