    Default Girl's Underpants??

    Hi all!

    Just wondering if anyone can help....

    Both my daughters (6 and nearly 5) are adverse to wearing underpants. They will wear them if they "have" to (eg. going to town/visiting/school) but day to day around the house they generally wear none. I'm getting tired of seeing bare bottoms so I'm trying to get them to wear them more regularly.

    I usually buy bikini briefs for them but they complain about them creeping up their bottoms. I've tried "Monkey Bar Knickers", but the legs aren't very elastisized so the same thing happens after they have been worn a few times. I reckon the ideal thing would be something like those men's undies you see that look like short bike pants. (The ones that come about half way down the thighs.)

    Does anyone know if something like that exists for girls and/or where I'd get them from? Or any other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Yep i'd just buy them boys undies like the ones you mentioned. Nothing wrong with girls wearing boys undies imo if they want to, and if they don't, just get plain ones and don't tell them they are for boys.

    Target brand girls are a very similar cut to their boys cut.

    Big W has the girls netball ones that you would wear under a skirt

    they had longer leg ones too.

    Bonds do little girl undies in the style you are after. They are pretty pricey though at around $8-$10 a pair.

    Thank you ladies. I'll have a look around when I go to town this week.

    I thought DD1 might be a bit disgusted about having to wear boys undies but when I asked her tonight, her response was "so long as they don't have something like Ben 10 on them!". She's a frilly, pink, flowers and fairies girly-girl!

    if you get plain ones you could always put a fairy iron-on transfer on them.

    I buy DD (almost 4 years) the Rio brand ones from Big W, with the thin sort of frilly elastic and little bow at the front. They are a bit wider across the bottom and crotch so don't creep up her bottom as much. She has the same problem with knickers, even the Bonds ones, as she's quite fussy with things like that. The Rio ones have been the best for her so far.

    She doesn't really like the boyleg style ones as they seem to still creep up.
