Default I Can't Find Comfortable Panties!

I can't find panties that don't pull up and make my skin raw where the leg opening meets my skin. I'm miserable all the time.
When I go to Catherine's, I buy size 15, and they are "OK" but always end up making me miserable eventually.

Does anyone know where to buy large panties that are comfortable? Maybe more stretchy???

I've always found Just My Size really good. You can get them in packs of 3 or 4 in Wal-mart or Target. For larger leg openings I get the high cut. They have really good coverage and I've never had a problem w/ rubbing.

I have chafing issues w/leg openings, too - the problem is the elastic around the openings (well, that and ridiculously sensitive skin, in my case). Just My Size are nice panties, but they don't protect my skin from the elastic and cause chafing there, unfortunately. I do have two suggestions, though:

These are awesome. They run large, and the leg openings and waist elastic are very thoroughly covered in soft cotton, so no chafing whatsoever. Cool cotton, and a couple of cute patterns, even.

These are also completely wonderful. Mostly I wear them around the house, but they're snug/close-fitting enough to wear under jeans, too, and they don't ride up as I feared they would. The waistband isn't covered in cotton, but it's high enough that it doesn't chafe, and because they're boxer briefs, the leg opening chafing issue is a non-issue. I love them.

Uncomfortable panties are the worst. Good luck getting into something better!

I have a few pairs of botton panties that are streamlined but have no elastic in the legs whatsoever. Very handy for this sort of thing. I don't know what the sizing is, but I'll try to find them and take a look if you think it'll help.

Carrie, I have looked at the panties that look like shorts. I was worried about them riding up under jeans. But you said they don't? My jeans are not tight, so that might help. I have been debating whether or not I should get them How about the boy cut?
thanks so much for your information.

Sandie,

I LOVE some of the blouses on that sight. Just what I'm looking for but they are WAY out of my price range. Thank you for the link though!

Hi Beth,

It really depends on the particular pair. I've bought "boxer briefs" before where they were much baggier and longer than I wanted, and those definitely wouldn't work under jeans. The particular style I referenced are snug, though, and are exactly the right length for me. Boy cut panties are fun, but I've found many of them to have an elastic around the legband and the ones from Roaman's and Woman Within tend to run small, in my experience. For instance, I bought the ones that are the equivalent of the hipsters I referenced in boy short style (same pattern, etc.,) and though they were the same size as the hipsters they were way, way more snug. If you're not in a rush, I'd recommend signing up for Roaman's (and Woman Within's) e-mail lists and wait for one of their specials (or google Roaman's coupon and see what you get) and use it to try a couple of pairs of panties to see what works for you. They occasionally have really good coupons that will save you a lot of money!

I wear Hanes boycut panties in a size 12. They do not have any elastic in the leg at all. I don't know what the largest size they come in, but I find them exceptionally comfortable.

Whut? Is NObody willing to suggest just going commando (california) style with a little talc or Gold Bond?!? If only just to titillate the random, lurking FA? Sometimes y'all just have ZERO consideration, y'know?

Some of us prefer not to go commando. I'd rather not end up with crotch pictures like Britney Spears all over the internet.

And there is NOTHING wrong with Sandie's panties....she likes comfort, not style.

Pssst....I think Ernest was teasing Sandie about the "wearing them for years" part, not the style of the panties.

I think the commando part was probably a joke, too.

Would it be too, too cute for me to suggest that nobody get their panties in a bunch in the panty thread?

I know you are all talking about big panties
But I very rarely wear the brief type preferring thong styles - I have bought most of my things in the last couple of years from Big Gals Lingerie - they are made out of the fabric of your choice so can be uuber stretchy and soft by selecting lycra - stretch lace etc - so I find these stretch with me and don't rub or chaff like so many thongs do
The rest of the time I get my other undies from www.shapelyfigures.com - cheap and if you select the right ones - comfy too

I wear the Hanes boycut(is that what they are called) very comfy cotton...I like that they sit below my waist (bellybutton) because I wear lower cut pants/jeans.

The first Roamans panties that Carrie mentioned are comfy but definitely run way big, so be careful! I got some in the biggest size thinking they might be small (my hips are definitely beyond 66-68 or whatever they say) and they are really billowy on me, even in the leg openings. The cut is really similar to a lot of undies from Torrid, except that they go a lot bigger.

I am not sure of your sizing in the hip/tummy etc area, but speaking of Torrid, if you don't mind wearing 'em under tummy if they're a tad small, they have some cheeky panties with a stretchy lacy trim that are really, really comfortable. I am also really loving the panties that I got from Avenue - they fit really nicely and are so, so soft. The sizing is pretty much just right for me, which I find confusing since a lot of their things are too small.

Thongs of course are great for leg room but not so nice for coverage. Bikini and string bikini are very comfortable for my really large thighs, and sticking with high cut instead of standard brief has always been the way to go for me as far as your average cotton comfies go I don't think I've worn briefs for.... at least a decade, probably closer to 15 years, because of the awful discomfort for my thighs.
