I had a clear out recently. Of my knicker draw. Oo err missus.
But I really did and I was surprised by the amount of knickers I had that were not regulation post baby knickers.
I had many a frilly one, a few lacy ones and about 900 G-strings. Alright, not 900, but a fair few tiny weeny, barely there thongs.
I haven’t worn any of them for about 7 years and there are some very good reasons for that.
Firstly, at some point they stopped being very comfortable. Secondly, I think I may have caught a glance at myself as I turned in the mirror and realised that my beautiful arse (and I will convince myself that it is beautiful) was no longer suitable for such a flimsy piece of material. It is sitting a little lower than it was 10 years ago, it’s a little bigger and it’s quite dimpled. It’s not awful, but it aint pretty eihter and I felt I had reached the end of the road.
However, I’m a fan of a tight pair of trousers and I was raised in the glare of the celebrity VPL, so clearly I had to find an alternative.
So I’ve been slowly building my knicker draw back up with the delights of the no VPL shorts. Alongside normal short knickers which can be worn under less tight clothes. I have comfort and most importantly, no VPL.
So here is my round up of the best VPL shorts for those ladies needing a bit more cover but no longer want to wear thongs.
Here is the offering from M&S. I bought a pair like this back in 2003 to wear with my wedding dress (a slinky number) but ended up wearing a g-string without even trying it on. It’s only been in the last few years I found it again.
These ones below are the ones from H&M that I’m currently using and they are brilliant. Cheap too. I’ve been buying them up alongside their bras which are a revelation.
And here is one I found from Debenhams. Good reviews as well.
Go on, you know you want to.
