Hmm you're making me curious, I might grab some full briefs to try out today original.gif

I'm in love with my new fridge, and will be even more in love with it when the water is connected.

Ha! I did that accidentally as well OP. I wear boy legs normally, and bought some of the organic ones from target, but didn't realise they were full briefs (same fabric design) - they are SO comfy. My hubby thinks it hilarious. I still like boy legs as well though.

I have discovered Paypal... best thing is it's linked to hubby's account so it's like I'm not really spending money wink.gif

Aaaaah..... scarfie

That, my love, is a sign of getting old.


A comfortable sign of a maturing bottom.

Congratulations.

I agree that thy are comfy, I'd never worn them before but had a Caesar recently. I would like to continue to wear them, but they look so unattractive on me I can't bring myself to wear them permanently.

Full briefs are the Crocs of the underwear world- ugly and to be scoffed at... but oh so comfortable.

I have worn full briefs for as long as I can remember, I hate anything that sits below my belly button. And they don't have to be ugly, I always buy the Jockey 'No Ride Up' microfibre ones, they're expensive, but the most comfortable undies I have ever worn. I really don't think they are ugly.  wink.gif

As comfy as they might be I just can't bring myself to wear them.

It would be admitting that I'm old.

What's next FFS? Buying Homy Peds at the Chemist???

I love Ebay....and Gumtree....and Paypal! Discovering EB has been an education I didn't know I needed blink.gif . Especially the Cstring! Aldi was a good discovery and coincidentally the 3pks of full brief undies I found there a few weeks ago.

Always hated the look of the 'cottontails' my mum has worn ever since I've known her, but these are a bit higher cut. DH rolled his eyes tho rolleyes.gif (apparently this is the 'eye-roll' emoticon tho I've always thought it was a 'smile'!)

#14 feralangel

Posted 03 December 2012 - 10:30 AM

I've been wearing them for years.  My husband calls them my apple-catchers.  Comfort for me over fashion every time. And who cares if they don't look sexually alluring - it's feeling sexy on the inside which counts!

I LOVE full briefs. I only ever buy All sorts from Big W and I don't feel old in them just very comfortable. wink.gif
I recently discovered how easy it is to make soap at home. We just started using my first batch of olive oil bars and I'm very proud of myself. I'm making more later this week. Waiting for some fragrance oils to arrive in the post. biggrin.gif
I have Samsung and I hate that silly tune at the end. Tounge1.gif

Posted 03 December 2012 - 10:32 AM

Hmmmm, i was just commenting yesterday that it might be time to hop into a full brief.

I have an unsightly twinskin that is causing my normal sized undies to roll down a bit sick.gif . I am forever hoisting them up which is a terrible look.

After reading this thread I am definately giving them a go!

#17 mal'occhio

Posted 03 December 2012 - 10:39 AM

I've been a convert to full briefs ever since my caesar - love them!! My most recent discovery is a bit controversial - Kraft whipped peanut butter - sooooooo good!!

#18 heffalumpsnwoozles

Posted 03 December 2012 - 10:44 AM

Oh good, someone who can explain the allure of whipped peanut butter. I don't get it. Although must admit I haven't tried it. It's more expensive than the normal stuff so I can't bring myself to buy it.

I'm going against the grain and saying I love my new Collette Dinnigan g-strings. So, so so so so so comfy, and sexy to boot. original.gif I don't think I have a single pair of pants that would actually cover the top of full briefs. ohmy.gif

#19 Guest_AllegraM_*

Posted 03 December 2012 - 10:45 AM

Full briefs never work for me and believe me, I am an all-comfort person, not all-style. Hipster briefs work for me best, both when pregnant and not pregnant.

#20 la di dah

Posted 03 December 2012 - 10:50 AM

Am I put together all wrong? I can't wear full briefs and pulled up to my navel would be up to my ribs on the side (the lowest floating ribs) and even if I only ever wore dresses and never pants that would not be comfortable.

I love my new sink!!

I got one which has 2 big square bowels and I can fit any platter or cutting board in it to wash, its amazing!!

#25 Beanbag Warrior

Posted 03 December 2012 - 02:20 PM

LDD, I would never buy full briefs for the same reason.  I run out of waist long before I run out of underwear to pull up.  Same reason I only ever buy hipster pants!!

I discovered we have a licenced brothel in town last week, but I'm not sure that's what this thread was after Tounge1.gif
