When my sister was pregnant she said “It’s so nice not to have to worry about sucking your stomach in all the time”.
I replied with “the only downside to that is afterwards you need to buy a pair of knickers to do it for you!” Thank god for Spanx ek? Underwear NOT for the faint-hearted!
I have to be honest, pre-children I never really knew about “magic knickers” In fact my only knowledge came at a wedding when a colleague announced to the table: she was going to have to go to the bog and take her fucking awful knickers off before her legs turned blue.
But post-babies I have learnt two things about knickers:
1) You should always carry a spare pair if you are going to jump on a trampoline
2) There are certain outfits that require sturdier underwear.
