Are they uncomfortable? Do they go up your bottom? And/or do they cut into your belly?

I don't get out much. A new lingerie departure is a major event for me.

Boyshort pants, that should be obviously.

Sorry, are you talking boxer shorts for women here?

nippersnappers Fri 01-Aug-08 17:53:45

The most comfortable things ever invented IMO

motherinferior Fri 01-Aug-08 17:54:31

Yes, those big pant french knicker wossnames.

I've got some satiny French knicker type things and they do ride up my arse.

If they were cotton they might be ok. But then they wouldn't be French knickers.

Stretchy ones? You can get silk stretchy ones.

Rhubarbstalkingarsehole Fri 01-Aug-08 17:57:05

Can you?

I bought a new batch recently. Very comfy, look as sexy as any knicker is going to look on me.

ONly problem I have is that if I walk up a steep hill, they slowly fally down and I have to rummage down the back of my trousers and hitch them up.

I cazn live with that.

I am quite tempted, I have to say.

pointydog Fri 01-Aug-08 18:08:46

Mine are very neat and do not flap at all at the top of the legs. Fitting but do not eat into my flesh at all.

pointydog Fri 01-Aug-08 18:13:01

I got these, and some others very similar.

pointydog Fri 01-Aug-08 18:14:25

and these. Leopard lace. Very slinky

motherinferior Fri 01-Aug-08 18:18:53

I am somewhat yearning for the stretch silk....

now i find this shape kncker just look like great big granny pants on my arse. no sexy short shaped at all. perhaps only nice if you're small?

<pauses before feeding kids>
You see that is what worries me. Am a shortarse and a size 10 but not a wispy one iysiwm.

I find they are rubbish for people with fat stomachs/long bodies (speaks with bitter experience)

I love 'em

V comfy too

pointydog Fri 01-Aug-08 19:56:19

I am not small. Not small at all. I have quite a stocky figure, though, and they suit me. My hips are stoutish but not those huge wide womanly ones. Maybe they don't look good on huge wide womanly hips.

motherinferior Fri 01-Aug-08 20:54:57

I shall venture into shortitude, I think. What the hell. I like the idea of beneath my stalwart jeans being a secretly french knickered silk fox.

Botbot Fri 01-Aug-08 20:59:08

Moonshine, I hear you.

I have one pair, and they also murder my caesarean scar (two years after said caesarean was performed).

God I sound glamorous, don't I?

motherinferior Fri 01-Aug-08 21:10:13

If it's any consolation, there are certain pilates poses that murder my episiotomy scar a full 7 years on blush

They go up me bum.
