So freaking hard to find! I want cotton, not full briefs, normal knickers, in a 22-24.
Tell me you know where to find some!

Target has always supplied my knicker needs in the past (and the present) are they not so friendly to the 22-24? They have everything else in 22-24 ...

Sorry, no help here. But if you need to find a pair of totally unsexy, post-baby-belly exaggerating, bum crack crawling, thigh cutting panties - I'm your girl. I seem to be a magnet

All I've been able to find in target are full briefs and I don't do nanna knickers!

I couldn't find bikini briefs, but these are not labelled full briefs. They are all classed as Hi cut briefs. They might be too 'nanna' for you?
I usually get some hi cut ones and some lacy ones at target but they are kinda not ... cotton

See, they look ok, but then you look at the others and I get the distinct impression they'd stick out of the top of my pants! If you compare them to a bikini brief they look quite distinctly high waisted.
But it's a start..

Tried Myer? They might be a bit more expensive, but have more variety? Don't quote me on anything, I buy new knickers once mine get to the point where I refuse a friend's offer of help at the clothesline, and shove them underneath everything else at the laundromat so no one sees the shame.

Big W has beey saviour in this department. I can't remember the brand (but sing out if you need it as I have some put away) but they are great. Not much of a colour choice but the quality makes up for it imo.
Good luck, it is such a pain trying to find clothes to fit sometimes!

I was at Big W buying undies just the other day, I was actually getting annoyed with their lack of full briefs LOL I like full briefs, I want my tummy to stay in my undies not for them to roll under - Sorry TMI I know lol.
Anyway yes BIg W had plenty of plus size underwear that were not 'granny knickers'

Not sure about sizing - but I do agree Best and Less have the best underwear.

I bought some plus size bonds undies from Big W. It was about a year ago though so not sure if they still have them.

I buy mine from Target. Size 20/22 black high cut briefs in a pack of 4-5. They are usually mixed in with the size 22/24.

All my undies are from best and less. I found them better then the target and kmart ones. Super comfy and cute designs as well.
Posted 03 June 2012 - 07:33 PM
I wear these ones in a 20. They are super comfortable and although they are a full brief they are pretty. The lacey bit is stretchy but holds my tummy a bit. They are cotton where it counts! http://www.kayserlingerie.com.au/cotton-lace-full-brief

Best and Less have some great plus-sized cotton underwear. They're not expensive and they don't look hideous. A lot of the range comes in smaller sizes too, but these are not simply bigger versions, and are cut to fit a fuller figure rather than simply being a bigger version of something designed to fit a size 8 body.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll go check out best and less. I found some in target that were ok, but have more on my list before baby comes.
