Better than M&S Classics
on 12 September 2011
For quite a while I have been using M&S Classic briefs. The Classics are larger and therefore more comfy than these annoying hipster styles that feel to me that are sliding off all the time.
Over the last 12 months though M&S have introduced a serious quality issue in that the elastic will stretch and become totally useless after just a few months using the recommended wash temperature and program. Reviews over there seem to indicate this is due to the removal of latex from the elastic.
I have been searching online for ages for a suitable replacement as none of the other main stores stock anything large enough to cover you comfortably.
Having just received these recently and tried them for fit they easily match the M&S Classic briefs and the elastic seems wider and hopefully will last considerably longer and therefore will 'stay up'. They also have the benefit of being available in various blues instead of the M&S white only option.
