The day your husband buys you pants!

My relationship with my husband was put under scrutiny this weekend. The reason being, he returned home from a food shop armed with a pack of woman’s pant shorts, and said ‘I thought you might like these!’ in a rather pleased with himself voice.

He then went on to explain, that he had noticed that my underwear had ‘seen it’s best!’ as he put it.

Now I used to be a girl that prided herself on her underwear, never designer (I have never afforded that) but always pretty and hopefully matching.

The fact of the matter is I have become very lapse when taking care of my underwear drawer! Since having my first born I have become far too comfortable in big cotton knickers, and the thought of putting on a thong now actually fills me with dread! If on a night out, I always take a spare pair of comfy briefs so I can change during the night in true Bridget Jones style. How terrible is that?

The problem is I spend so much of my time concentrating on what to buy everyone else that I forget about myself. For some strange reason I always see underwear as a luxury, whereas in fact it is actually a necessity! It is not the sort of thing that your girlfriends buy you, deeming it too personal, and so it is left to Birthday’s Christmas and Valentine’s from your significant other, when, lets say, it is not always appropriate everyday wear. By that I mean, if, God forbid, I was ever in an accident, would I want the paramedic seeing what I was wearing? The truth, however, is I should be more embarrassed now, with my rather washed and worn briefs!

So there we have it, my underwear saga in brief (ha ha). I don’t really know whether I should have been worried, mortified, or really peed off, but the fact of the matter is, I was secretly rather pleased. So maybe my husband and I are a match made in heaven after all!

    Oh I love my 'big knickers' and am glad I am not the only one. My biggest underwear 'neglect' is never matching – if my Mother knew I never match my bra and knickers she'd freak and come at me with the 'what if you were in an accident' quote too!

    Ah I think that's really sweet and at least he bought you practical ones. My husband is getting better at buying things I will wear, he always used to buy 'sexy' underwear that I didn't like and was simply not going to wear, he would always be put out but then I would point out his baggy boxer shorts weren't too attractive either (he won't wear tight ones as they are uncomfy apparently!). I also admit to my underwear not matching :-/ With a set I usually don't get on with the bra so I do like plain ones, mix and match girl! x

    I think its ultra cute – (did think the picture was of your new knickers to start with and did start to question Nicks taste, but soon realised its Ms Jones.)
    Hope you enjoy the new found comfort that is big pants

    That is so thoughtful!

    I always used to be a thong girl but am so fat now it would be revolting! I like the bikini style. The most we go towards matching is both top & bottoms are black. I have a drawerful of matching underwear that I'm too fat :-(

    Well ladies, with you all thinking that he is really sweet, maybe I was wrong to question! I also think we should now start a pro cotton knickjker campagin!

    The Boy and Me – I don't believe for one minute you are too fat. x

    I recently got a few new bits, I swear mine were all grey!
    If Victor(Meldew as I like to refer to him as)had his way I would stay in grey for ever more, he is colour blind and a bit on the careful side (tight arse!)

    What happens to them in the wash to make them go grey? It is true though, they all do! Clearly the white washing detergents don't work! Or is that mine should not be 2 years plus old?! He he

    Hehehe. I have to say, I wore thongs until I was about 8 months pregnant… Then as soon as I could after, I was back in thongs! Just can not wear full-bottomed knickers! But they are the comfy cotton M&S ones now, rather than the lace ones I used to buy (though they're still at the bottom of the drawer there just in case!!) xx

  • Mrs R

    I'd happily wear matching sets if someone was kind enough to finance my shopping trip hehehe

    I stick to black knickers, somehow they don't seem as bad but mine have 'seen their best' too.

    Good on your guy for going for it. Was he a bit scared of what your rection might be?

  • Helen

    how funny!!! as I tweeted to you, I nearly spat my tea all over my laptop!
    I'm a shorts woman but they keep going missing….I think my OH puts them in my 10yr old sons drawer! Not that I have a backside the size of a 10yr old boy (unfortunately)…they are very stretchy!
