There's a reason our high rise brief is a bestseller
Emily Cronin is a fashion journalist, writing for names like The Telegraph. Emily is also the creator of the 'Hello Girls' podcast - a fascinating, fun and body-positive series focused on the world of underwear.
“I spent my late teens and early 20s thinking that all of my underwear had to look a certain way, which was ‘sexy’. It had to be lacy or see-through or teeny-tiny. But one day I just found big knickers, and I haven’t looked back,” as another anonymous contributor to Hello Girls put it.
“It’s not just for the sheer comfort and reassurance; it also makes me feel like I’m scoring small points against the patriarchy in some way. I think the only reason we were led to believe that big pants were in any way unattractive or unseemly is because we were told that underwear was essentially just to turn men on, and it wasn’t about our comfort or what we actually wanted to wear underneath our clothes.”
