I've been looking around for some new pants, some of my old ones need chucking, they are very old. You may already know this, I have mentioned it before, but I wear boys pants, not women's knickers, because they are more robust and last a lot longer. From my past experiences, many years ago, I found that knickers stretch and go baggy after a while, and they are too flimsy, and the lace falls off. I like to know that my bottom is adequately covered, and boys pants fit the bill just right.
My waist is 30 inches and my hips are 38 inches, so pants for boys age 13 - 14 are perfect. A lot of the pants now have a strip of wide elastic for a waistband, usually with the latest trendy name on them. I don't like those, and I don't need to tell the world that I am wearing the latest Kalvin Klines, or whatever that bloke is called. I want a soft waistband where the elastic isn't so wide, and covered with the fabric.
I found them in Tesco. Ten pairs of pants for £5.50, and they had 25% off so they cost me £4.12, an absolute bargain. Sadly they only had one pack left, or I would have bought more. I will look again next time I am in there, because I like to have a drawer full of them, then when it's wash time I can do them all in one load.
Blimey, it was nine years ago when Hunt for Britains Tightest Person was on the telly, and I told the whole world I wear boys pants. I stand by my claim, boys pants last longer than girls knickers, and I am still saving money, because I don't need to buy them very often.
