Where do granny panties come from?

I'm confident nearly every woman owns a pair (though one of my friends denies this... she is obviously weird :p) Like wire hangers though, everybody seems to have them but no idea where they came from. I don't remember ever going to a store picking up a big ugly pair of panties and thinking I must have these. Yet somehow they are in my drawer. Mystery of the world.

    i dont actually own any granny pants :p

    unless girly boxers count? thats about as big as my pants get.

    the rest are french knickers and thongs!

    The only big pants I wear are Rich's boxers (which I am wearing today because I had chaffage yesterday and they're way more forgiving). I also have girly boxers (basically all I wear) but they're not 'big'.

    some pants have turned into granny pants because they have been in the wash many a time and the elastic has gone and it's gone a bit grey, but i dont want to throw them out

    Sometimes, when a great-grandpa panty and a great-grandma panty love each other very much...

    i have not so big knickers, but they're black...and thus i believe that discounts them???

    you're so right you know, i found a couple of pairs when i was going through my underwear drawer a while ago and i remember thinking what the hell, i never bought those! i think sometimes it just happens to brief style knickers when they've been through the wash a few too many times. i never wear them through the day but you cant beat putting a nice clean pair of comfy granny knickers on to sleep in at night :thumb: or is that just me...only when im sleeping alone though haha.

    Ohhh we used to have to wear granny pants to do athletics at school - as in over our real knickers as it were.

    I think any other random pantage i have can be explained by christmas presents from my mother who is convinced i'm a size 14 when i'm not at all so anything she buys is always big and saggy - nice....

    Yep I think there from Christmas, I definetly didn't buy any but I bet if I went through my drawer I could find a pair. I prefer girls boxers.

    Imagine if they came back into fashion... Where they ever in?:chin:

    I have girl boxers and french knickers, they are the biggest ones i've got :) Now i don't have periods (yey!) I don't need any 'period pants' hehe

    I have a few pairs of granny pants that are mega comfy! I don't wear thongs, french kinickers or girly boxers as they are just so uncomfy. And thongs are just a pain in the arse (literally!)

    I just wear comfy knickers, ever so practical and un-sexy, ha :blush:
