Seriously. Fuck an emergency pair. How old are those anyway? Go get some new ones, even if they're dollar store cheapies they're bound to be better than falling-apart drawers.

Why the hell my knickers always fall apart dammit! Stupid washingmachine.

Trayce, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:02 (thirteen years ago) link

(i has an emergency pair on right now. They has a big hole in them, hee hee)

Trayce, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:03 (thirteen years ago) link

I have, like, 15 pairs of identical black M&S knickers. Enough to get me through 2 weeks without laundry. I don't even think I have "emergency" knickers...

Oh wait, maybe I do. But they may be in better shape than the black ones, as they're the pink ones that came in the purple pack and I never wear them simply because I don't like the colour.

emergency knickers?!?

nathalie, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:07 (thirteen years ago) link

It's a Mormon thing, I think.

StanM, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:45 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh wait, that's Magic Underpants.

Don't know what they mean exactly: are they for when you unexpectedly soil yourself or when you unexpectedly wind up with a surprise bedpartner or something? (just guessing)

StanM, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:46 (thirteen years ago) link

No, silly, they are for when you haven't done the laundry in weeks and weeks and they are the last pair of pants left at the bottom of the bag, and rather than actually wash your clothes or run out to M&S and buy some new ones (I have actually done this instead of the laundtry) you put on the Emergency Knickers.

They are usually in a quite sorry state, more holes than actual knicker, really. Also generally HUUUUUUGE and in quite an unattractive colour. (See Bridget Jones.)

It is almost entirely guaranteed that if you wear your Emergency Knickers while on the razzle, you will end up pulling, and have a mad dash to remove said knickers before your pullee notices how awful they are.

Masonic Boom, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:49 (thirteen years ago) link

emergency underwear are the pair that don't really fit properly/have holes but that you keep around in case you forgot to do laundry.

xpost beautifully said kate!

Wow, I am A Girl after all! Hurrah!

Masonic Boom, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 12:52 (thirteen years ago) link

Brilliant!

(I may need some emergency underwear of my own to check out this "guaranteed to pull" statement, I think.)

StanM, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:04 (thirteen years ago) link

This only works for girls.

Masonic Boom, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:06 (thirteen years ago) link

Alas, no, I don't have any emergency knickers. I do have ones that are size small. I didn't check all the sizes when I bought my last bunch of knickers and apparently one's a teeny weeny size. :-(

This horribly otm argh.

Trayce, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:09 (thirteen years ago) link

Maybe I shd just go commando or something hey.

Trayce, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:10 (thirteen years ago) link

My "emergency pants" ended up becoming my "special pulling pants" - you know, back in the day when I still had sex and all. ;-) Or maybe because I associated them with getting lucky, they became my "lucky gig pants". And I was more likely to pull groupies after playing a gig.

Man, those were great pants. I wore them until they literally fell off me. (I think a particularly keen groupie ripped them with his teeth.)

Maybe that's where my mojo went. Destroyed with the lucky pulling pants.

i also have emergency socks (got them flying Virgin). my emergency knickers are boxer shorts with an xmas motif that i got for a present years ago. they are 'roomy'.

stevie, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:14 (thirteen years ago) link

increasingly commando appeals.

Ms Misery, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:16 (thirteen years ago) link

Them Virgin socks are comfy - I've got them pale blue and purple. But you can't really wear them with shoes, as they get eaten so quickly.

Masonic Boom, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:17 (thirteen years ago) link

... by keen groupies?

StanM, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:31 (thirteen years ago) link

Ah, I should be so lucky. By keen shoes.

Masonic Boom, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:32 (thirteen years ago) link

aye! they are fab to mix'n'match too, kate! they come in very nu-rave shades, i find...

stevie, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:33 (thirteen years ago) link

the socks, not the groupies, obv...

stevie, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:33 (thirteen years ago) link

I have the bright yellow Virgin Socks!

I once bought some boxers/briefs (dunno, made of stretchy fabric but in a trunk kind of thing) from I think it was Top Man and I really like them. So I bought some more and since then Top Man only seem to do underwear that bulges out at the front, is really really tight on one leg and loose on the other and hangs down showing off my arse crack. It's not a matter of having put on weight cos the old ones fit fine, and besides I tried buying XXL ones and even they were too tight on the legs. GRR!

the next grozart, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:35 (thirteen years ago) link

I wear men's white V-necks for around the house & pajamas, and they're getting totally disgusting from stains & wear. Thanks, Teeny, for the reminder: I'll toss them & buy new, and it'll be nice to have brilliantly white shirts for a few weeks!

Laurel, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 13:38 (thirteen years ago) link

don't throw them out! cut them up and use them for dusting and cleaning!

tokyo rosemary, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 14:10 (thirteen years ago) link

this thread is incomprehensible to me. i'd have to not do laundry for about 7 years to even come to the bottom of my underwear drawer.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Wednesday, 4 April 2007 14:12 (thirteen years ago) link

Actually, Zo, I'll probably use them for shop rags. :)

Laurel, Wednesday, 4 April 2007 14:17 (thirteen years ago) link

See also bras where the underwiring makes a bid for freedom. You don't realise. You put them on. And you spend the rest of the day trying to stop it goring you or making your right breast resemble a chicken shish kebab.

thirteen years pass...

thanks for reminder

I hate it when they lose their elasticity. I mean, come on, man!
