St Andrews Day will be upon us soon and many Scots men will be wearing their kilts. They have to suffer the jokes about what a Scotsman wears under his kilt etc but do you know ladies wore nothing under their skirts a few centuries ago. I can't imagine what that was like! I like to know my knickers, pants, briefs, undies or drawers or what ever you might call them are going to stay in place and feel comfortable.
I'm too old to wear thongs that look so uncomfortable and I hate seeing them show above the waistline/hipline of ladies trousers as they bend down - the feminine equivalent of Builders bums! I always wore Marks and Spencers pants but a few years ago, fed up with the cotton losing it shape and slipping down I bought a pack of 4 Sloggi briefs and have continued to buy them until recently when I tried a few pairs from Marks once again.
Sloggi briefs were launched back in 1979 believe it or not and designed briefs that would be comfortable and keep their shape. There are many designs now and even some for men! There are Tai, Midi, Maxi and although these are fairly plain in style there are some really pretty ones in the Romantic range with lace panels and sheen to the fabric.
The classic styling and comfort is a winner in my mind and the mixture of 95% high quality cotton and 5% Lycra works really well. The Tai range is in sizes 10-20 but other styles range from 10 -26 and the colours vary from white only to white, black, poudre and champagne. For those that like hipster briefs, they are available and also a longer length leg. There is high leg cut too and a sporty short style.
Sloggi is probably more popular for older ladies but they do try and make some briefs that may attract the younger market. I think because they fit well they don't show a knicker mark on tighter trousers and skirts.
They are available from many shops like Debenhams and Figleaves and catalogues like Empire and Daxon. It is worth looking out for offers as quite often you get a free pair in a pack of 4. I have seen them on sale for £12 for 2 pairs of Tai Control briefs, 4 Midi briefs for £17.50 and 7 maxis for £29.50. Seems expensive? Well yes and no. They last well, wash easily and keep their colour and looks for ages, I have pairs over a couple of years old, eventually the Lycra goes and I have put my finger through near the waistband but I would say they are very old ones!
I would recommend any lady to try them, apart from the Romance style they are plain and not glamorous but they are comfy and stay in place!
