Big pants!

Recenlty i did a post on mens pants. So i thought it only fair i do a post on ladies knickers! Apprenlty thongs are out and big pants are in!


Thong sales down by 14%







Bridget Jones pants up 36%

Boy shorts are very in!






Control pants have also risen by 15%






Only 1 in 4 of us treat ourselves! Our favorite places in the UK are Ann Summers and Coco de Mer.

So ladies show me your knickers! Are you a Bridget Jones or a sex kitten?

Mmmm... is this a sign that as a population we're losing our 'sexiness' or are we just becoming very practical...??

Babaloo said...

I think more a sign of practicality and comfort. I'm with Bridget on this. With the occasional excursion into other realms.

Anne Brooke said...

But, m'dear, big pants have never been out of fashion! I swear by them, I tell you!!!

I've got several sets of sexy undies, but day to day prefer just ordinary cotton knickers from M & S or somewhere! I don't find thongs comfortable, and I don't particularly like boy shorts. One good thing, since losing a stone, I don't need my control knickers! but keeping them just in case!

Bettina said...

mmmmmm - in the middle - bikini style knickers lol

BenefitScroungingScum said...

No big pants for me! Ick. Brazilian style thongs, now they're sexy, comfy and practical, what more could a woman want? BG

motherx said...

Have to say I hate thongs! vile things! Im a fan of the bikini bigger pants. You know the ones that cover your bum and the wobbly bits of your stomach. Also Big pants are good too! Hate lacy things, they are too uncomfortable, although D always seems to bring some home...gross!

Marks and Spencer's . . . they last a long time. One tip I was given many years ago - always buy a size larger than you need - that way they will never feel tight and make you feel fat . . .and it works . . . except after Xmas . . .sigh . . .

Mima said...

I'm still a thong girl, but that now makes me seriously out of fashion! Still it was good while it lasted.

R.E.H. said...

So ladies show me your knickers! - I will second that, and I will mean it too ;)

But, really. Those granny panties are not sexy girls. Thongs and lace is the way to go. At least, that's what us guys wanna see.

the mother of this lot said...

This lot all swear by girl boxers. Worryingly, one pair has a band round the top which says 'I love boys pants'.

Vi said...

I'm more of a boy pants lady. Lacy ones of course!

Scarred4life said...

ROFL
Wont let you look at mine,but I like the shorts :D
Then again,Bridget Jones got it right ~some~ of the tme!

Inthemud said...

Me in middle too, bikini, can't wear thongs, too uncomfortable!
and don't like big pants either

Seamus said...

Frankly I think it should be comfort first. Just sayin'! ;)

Mrs. Fox said...

What about good ol' fashioned bloomers?!

Patti said...

No thongs here. Guess I'm showing my age. Just something soft and comfy.

Jen said...

Used to be thongs, now it's definitely boy shorts. And somedays granny panties, when I'm feeling particularly old and scuzzy :-)

Alin Steglinski said...

"Control pants have also risen by 15%"

Compression garments... count me in!!!

buffalodickdy said...

Reminds me of a joke! A guy is changing clothes in the locker room, when he notices a good friend of his changing clothes also- except his buddy is wearing a laced pair of womans' bikini panties! Says to his friend, "How long have you been wearing womens' panties?" Guy answers "Ever since my wife found a pair in my cars' glovebox"...

Joan said...

I'm definitely a Bridget. I tried a thong just once in my life and thought I was being strangled the entire day.

vivavavoom said...

I am afraid I am a very boring cotton bikini brief.

Ian Lidster said...

Knickers -- a favorite realm for exploration -- metaphorically, of course -- not!
What fun in all sense of the word.

lime said...

i tried thongs once long ago and hated them. i'd sooner just go commando than feel like i've got a perpetual wedgie. gimme a comfy pair or non-granny style but full coverage panties.

graceunderautism said...

thongs were fine when my hiney wasn't so big it swallowed them....that would be pre-kids. Now my fav is the ladies boxer briefs or bikini.

Jim said...

Wow.. seeing all of those behinds made me think. LOL

I don't care what my wife wears as long as I am able to take it off. he he

katy said...

me thongs are in the bin as i got fed up of them up me arse! now wear 'George' shorts in cotton, very comfy not very sexy!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Oh, that has cheered me up, Casdok!

leslie said...

Great post! Interesting how the younger women like thongs. However, they remind me of the "old days" when we had to wear a belt to attach the sanitary pad! ICK!!! SO uncomfortable!!! So I have to say I prefer cotton knickers that just cover the tummy but below the belly button. HATE HATE HATE lacy things - so itchy!

bullet said...

Cotton with good coverage, but not too baggy.
No twee pastel shades
Or slogans
Or pictures.

blooming desertpea said...

I'm neither nor. My ones are called Jazz-Pants. They are black, reach to the waist but are cut high at the legs. Comfortable before sexy is MY motto!

Jennie said...

I have never been able to stand wearing thongs, I much prefer boy short type undies. Far more comfortable. I do have one of those hideous body shaper control things and it does knock inches off, but it's very uncomfortable.

Jocelyn said...

Never a thong! I'm a middle-of-the-roader on this...kind of a bikinis person.

Fun post!

FXSmom said...

well, right now I'm a bridget jones cuz of the surgery BUT I'm hoping once I heal up I can be a sex kitten on occasion. Normally I like my boyshorts or control tops :)

Cait O'Connor said...

Definitely big. Sloggis for me, they are heaven to wear and hold things in too!

Anonymous said...

There was a show on in the 70's called HEE HAW. There was a robust woman named Lou Lou Roman. I think I would find her 'Drawers' pretty comfy!

slouching mom said...

Sigh. Sad to say, I'm with Bridget.

Maddy said...

I'll wear more or less anything as long as there are no labels, seams or other itchy bits!
Cheers

QUASAR9 said...

Either way Casdok,
it's the peeling them off
that leads to the most fun!

Eileen said...

Seems all about comfort to me. Thongs are not comfortable, and granny panties are just too big. In the middle suits me fine. I agree that lace is itchy. silk of satin is best for me!!

Nancy said...

Bikini or boy shorts for me.

Special K said...

i have a huge problem
i think i had sex with gaylord from a distance now i am a sex zombie of him :( i had this idea about nuclear energy and sex. OMG. I mean i am soooo horny. I mean there are many levels of sensibility. Not that I wanna hurt anyone haha cause i couldn't!!!! Like in life there are certainties and one of them is i couldn't and can't hurt anyone. However i wanna find Gaylord again however cannot find him?????? His first message to me was 1) He rules and 2) I suck and 3) if i want more, i need to suck.

And as such i had tried sucking the best i ever could. Yes. I had this theory about opium and counsciousness and all their levels and ADN, and how information and the flow of information works. And there's nothing to stop the flow. However this is not true. I have found out if i could find Gaylord, maybe i could find the flow. However this might just be acting. I had been reading this book about counsciousness and art and autists, and one of them objects that could rust around him rusted. I think (and i am happy) to have his disease. However i need to learn!!!! I now know there are many many many many many many layers between the screen and my eyes. Talk about depth! I mean really. I mean God exists. However I cannot find him!!!! I'm blond!!! Anyone knows how it is best to listen to him? Does he exist thru frequencies? I have tried some paranormal musical frequencies on myself recently and got close to multiple orgasm. However i do not know it yet.. does it have anything to do with music .. i mean really i have read lots of books that say it's possible to have a multiple orgasm maybe (?) that can really send to other planets. I mean it's because Einstein invented a musical sex robot. And as such I am in love with Einstein however i cannot find him :((((((( And neither can I find Leonardo or the Mona Lisa :(((( I'm super blond :((((

Angela said...

It all depends on my mood
I don't like undies that cover my belly. I like it to stay around the hips

Chris H said...

I wear bikini ones. and sometimes contro ones. and when I'm feeling real sexy.. a thong.. but only around home!

Lane said...

lol! I love how many comments you have on this post.
I've lost my favourite pants. I know one of the dogs has them but they won't tell me where:-)

Odat said...

I just love sexy underwear! They make me feel sexy too.. I usually go with the bikinis or high thighs.
Peace

Poetryman said...

Up with lingerie I say. Whoops, I mean down with it.

J said...

Am a boy-short girl. They are just a tad sexier than Granny panties and just as comfortable. Didn't know they were popular. Thanks. I feel more fashionable now.

thecanvasgrey said...

Wee hoo, I'm free! Because I've been blessed with the multi-tasking gene, I've always bought whities for one and all so bleach and one load would do. But at Christmas I felt it was time for a gift to all and bought color into our lives(including moi). I feel as sexy as ever in my cotton flowered undies. They aren't thongs but they aren't Bridget britches either! I feel liberated! **snicker**

Joker The Lurcher said...

big M & S pants in black cotton every time! but if i want to give the other half a treat i wear no pants at all under a dress and spend the whole evening telling him...
