I'm on the lookout for a pair of comfy pants! What do you think are the most comfiest?

Boylegs. ETA I always find knickers are undersized - ie I usually wear a size 12-14 in clothing but I need to get a 16 in underwear to be comfortable.

Yes, the Jockey no pant lines are great.  Very comfy and don't ride up your butt.

My mum bought me some Aldi ones and they are surprisingly comfortable too.  I've worn them on occasion and to my horror thought I had no underwear on they are that comfortable.

Bonds slinky ones.  Not sure what they are actually called, but they are, well slinky.  Dry in about half an hour so are great for travelling and take up no space in luggage or your undie drawer.

Bonds hipster or bikini briefs. The black ones make my bum look tiny lol. I also prefer the black because, for some reason, i find that the white or skin coloured ones lose their shape quicker.
I have a few pretty/lacy sets but i generally only wear bonds.
Might try jockeys though.

I bought a pack too.  They were cheap and I needed new underwear and they were surprisingly comfortable.  It's just a shame they are special buys and you have to wait for them.  

Otherwise I quite like the Hot Options brand from Target - their hi cut bikini and there were a couple of pairs of Bonds (hi cut bikini) that were okay but a lot more pricey than the other brands so not sure if they were worth the money.

I've tried boylegs and they rode up and also some mens trunks but they all rode up.  I hate buying underwear because you don't know whether they are suitable until you have worn them for a while.

Another Jockey fan here. No visible panty lines, they don't creep and are very very comfy. And DH says they look good too.

I find Calvin Klein undies really comfortable.

Do you mean brands?  I love Jockey.  They have 'no ride up', 'no pant line' and just the regular type - all in hi-cut, boyleg, full brief, bikini, etc.  I love the microfibre.


Yep, these. They might be expensive but they are worth it.

I'm a big fan of any knickers made by marks and spencer, especially their midi and full briefs (aka granny knickers)  laugh.gif

I have some Coles brand hipster bikini knickers. Omg they are so comfy. I bought two packs because I was going on holiday with a friend and I wanted a new pair every time I changed so just bought them on special. I now find that I search through my draws looking for them !

Def Jockey Parisienne - although Target do a $6 version which is just as good.

I can't stand anything bikini, as my backside always hangs out, no matter the size.  So boyleg all the way original.gif


Also, underwear is still based on traditional dressmakers sizing - not vanity sizing.  So although I'm an 8 in shops, in underwear I'm a 12.

Another vote for Jockey Parisienne. And I'm glad to know it's not just me that has to wear size 12 undies when I'm an 8 in everything else! wink.gif

Bonds don't last as well now that they are made in China, but I still mostly wear them. Mum bought me some cheaper ones that are suprisingly comfy as well, but I can't remember what they are.

I second the Bonds microfibre undies as the comfiest undies I've ever owned.  I bought them specifically for a trip to Africa as I needed undies that could be washed & dried in no time & they were perfect.

You must have a small butt! Tounge1.gif I'm pear-shaped, so I tend to be bigger in my hips and thighs.

Anything boyleg where the elastic around the waist is covered.

I do have a small butt so I'm the same in undies as clothes size.

I actually dislike bonds!! I mean they look and fit great but I don't find them breathable at all. Maybe I'm just strange.

Haven't found the perfect undies yet, might try jockey.

I am also the same size in clothes as I am in undies.  shrug.gif
