I have got more knickers than I know what to do with.
This weekend I threw away all the bottom creeping, narrow gusseted,high waisted and generally horrible knickers.
I was left with not enough.
So I went shopping with my favourite pair in my bag, they are pretty, not too big and the perfect shape.
I found the same shape fabric etc and bought 9 pairs.
I am thrilled.
I did get some off looks though as I lay the shop knickers on top of my “ handbag” knickers😬

I have a preference for “midis” sago and have bought loads of them from Sainsbury’s in many different colours, they have some lace at the front, a “proper gusset and don’t come up to my armpits and….. in my size, so Yay! know just how you feel. …..Just hope they don’t discontinue them because I just can’t do thongs, Brazilians or shorties.
The hunt for the perfect bra continues though.

I buy my knickers from Modibodi. A bit expensive but a perfect fit and with added protection from little leaks.
I had found perfect M&S bras too until they discontinued them. The alternatives are more expensive and uncomfortable.
My Eureka was when I found Maybelline brow mascara. I had never found a mascara that didn't give me panda eyes. My brows started going grey so I bought a brow colour, tried it on my lashes and Eureka....2 birds one stone!

I did the same a year or so ago, Sago chucked a load of ancient, faded ones that refused to wear out, and treated myself to a dozen new (3 for 2) pairs from M&S. 🙂
They still look like new.

I've just looked at Modibodi Pittcity they certainly are expensive, out of my price range I'm afraid.
