How great a word is that?! Brigtened up my day that has!

Is it one word or two though?

desperatehousewife Tue 19-Apr-05 12:11:54

2 words, but 1 funny thought.

my gran always wore one.
Did they have lycra or was it all elastic engineering.
We have bridget jones big knickers these days don't we.

what is a panty girdle?

My mum who is 72 still wears a panty girdle and my daughter who is 9 thinks it is very hilarious.
When my daughter was smaller she asked why it took nanna so long to go to the toilet and my dad replied ' well it takes her ages to pull her saddle (meaning her girdle) up', so in our house that's what it's called much to my mums disgust.

Panty hose is another silly phrase.

desperatehousewife Tue 19-Apr-05 15:59:57
