My DD has recently started having trouble with undies sizing. Every sz8-10 cut/brand I've purchased so far keeps riding up her butt (but otherwise they look to fit well). I bought sz10-12 but they are just ridiculously baggy.

Is there a particular brand or cut that has more room in the butt region but still fits to an average sized waist? Or perhaps is there a smaller sized 10-12 she could try?

Any advice would be great thanks

Maybe try boy leg cut undies

I’ve noticed a recent trend toward women’s bathers and briefs showing more butt cheek. All I can think when I see it is, how uncomfortable. As if women’s clothes aren’t skimpy enough.

Has she tried boy cut/ boxers?

Bonds seem to be quite generous in butt area.

Bonds boy leg undies.

We have this issue too! She doesn’t complain but it doesn’t look comfortable.

Thanks all. She's tried Tradie's boy leg but not Bond's boy leg. I haven't seen those in store anywhere but I'll keep an eye out. She complains about the regular Bonds cut - which otherwise look to be a perfect fit for her

My mum got me Bonds full briefs - now I love Kmart basic 5 pack

(not sure if they have the equivalents in kids but Target basic is ok but does not last as long for me and again not sure for kids)

Somebody on here out me on to H&M girls undies - they are boyleg but only seams up the side. DD loves them and they look very comfortable.

Oh do M&S do mail order underwear? I loved theirs when I was in the UK but not ordered online

H&M. DD hasn’t had an issue since she’s worn them. No more constant wedgies.

Boy leg or hipsters, tighter rather than loose.

I love the Jockey Parisienne boylegs, they go down to a ladies 8 if that might fit her.

I just found tx maxx boy leg undies for my DD in target. Maybe they will work?

I was wondering the same - that's all I wear now, and the first time in my life my pear shaped body didn't suffer wedgies. The only ones which didn't give me wedgies showed up seriously through clothes .

I wear their ten, though, so they're fairly generous, however you can but try.

They have this one in both colours in 8.

The picture makes it look like they come part way up your bum, but they don't, they've just got it styled that way.

H and M.

That might have been me Grumbles.
H & M for boyleg shorties, or cotton on kids for briefs.  Though my DD is a bit younger so the ctn on briefs might change for bigger kids sizes.

Another vote for H&M undies. DD has the same wedgie issues with her underwear but H&M seem to be ‘complaint-free’ from her.

FWIW, when she was younger I swore by bonds as everything else ended up with endless wedgie complaining. I’m not sure if DD’s growing or Bonds changed their cut, but they now result in wedgies on her.

PPs, make sure you leave reviews for the endless wedgies undies on the websites because if we’re not the only parents who’s kids encounter this issue, the manufacturers need to know because someone is following the wrong pattern!

I don’t get how we as adults don’t seem to suffer from wedgies.

^ idk, my sisters who do stopped wearing underwear 15 years ago.  Maybe that's the adult solution? Lol

thanks everyone. I'll pop into H&M today and see what they have. Hopefully they will be a success! I'll report back. And if not, I'll check out some of the other suggestions. Thanks again

I and my sister, and now my daughter absolutely do. Depends on your body shape and what the market is for that style of undies.


Every single year my apple shaped sister would buy me nice knickers to add to a birthday or christmas present.  It took me years to say to her that they never fitted, and she was happy to take back this considerable collection of new knickers.

I completely agree! Reviews are helpful when buying stuff like this. Even something like ‘they cause wedgies in my kid’s skinny butt’ or ‘fit my average sized X year old well’ or ‘my sensory child doesn’t like the tag/seams’ goes a long way in guiding some of my purchases.

DD reports that MAXX from Target (I thought it was TX MAXX but I was wrong) is good. She says its very comfortable. only first day of wearing them though!

I'm off to H&M tomorrow and ill grab a few pairs from there tomorrow too.
