Mum on the Run – M&S pants; they can’t be beaten!

When I stocked up on new undies recently from M&S, I didn’t expect to feature them on here. However when I told my friend about my new purchases, and how good they were, she commented that she didn’t really like doing the leg work on those things and I could I write about them – so here they are.



These are the No VPL Low Rise Floral Lace Shorts which cost £5, or £10 for 3. There will never be one style of pant which suits all women but for anyone who likes the shorts style, these are great. They are more supportive than the lace version that I have worn for the past few years and the reviews that I have read (there are 82) are pretty good.

Personally, I wouldn’t ever rely on the no VPL assertion – these are pretty good but it does depend on the fabric of the clothes that you are wearing. Also, they do come up on the slightly small (ish) size too, so I would suggest going up a size.

When you find yourself choosing something in preference to anything else that you may own – that’s when you know you are on to a winner! So if you are ready for an underwear update, these could be worth trying. They do look like several other styles – as I found out to my cost when, having bought 2 pairs I went back for a whole load more and got the wrong ones – so it’s worth taking the “T” number – T618699B.

    My sister lives in Boston but was home recently and stocked up on lots of those very pants!! Even Victoria's Secret doesn't compete apparently. I've just emailed her this post as I'm sure it will amuse her greatly:)

    So true! They can't be beaten….if you are fortunate to get them in your size! The biggest gripe I have about M & S at least the Fosse Park store anyway, is they never seem to have my size. There are always really big or very small sizes. I don't think they replenish as often as demand dictates.

    First thing I stock up on when I'm back – I love their 'boyshorts' with jeans and their brazilian panties are lovely. Will never stray from M&S underwear even living here! x

    I like these. Also like the bikini style ones with the lace band…as the lace bit actually serves as a tum-flattener if you get the right size!

    Hello and thanks for dropping by. You will be pleased to know that I relied on all of your comments whilst talking about undies during my recent styling stint at Merry Hill. They resulted in lots of nods, smiles and some giggles too -so thank you for that! x
