2nd Trimester

Why is my underwear falling down?

My bump just started popping out a bit, enough to be in maternity clothes but not enough for people to look at me and tell I'm pregnant. My underwear are all bikinis, so they are all lower than my bump. But now they keep falling down? They aren't even going over my bump and they won't stay up? What's the deal??

  • Huh - that is not a problem I'm having! If anything my hips have spread a bit, making my underwear more secure than I'd prefer.

  • I don't know, why ARE your underwear fallling down?
  • Maybe you need larger bikini underwear now? Otherwise go commando if you can.

  • Haven't the clue.... 

    I say join my club and go commando....  

  • My underwear roll down too. I'm sure it's time to go up a size.

  • Are your pants falling down too? Maybe your undies are just along for the ride?

    Yes this! I just bought some more pairs of my more full coverage underwear that I don't normally wear (because they were a little big before) so that I'd have enough to wear for awhile. I never thought these Hanes and Fruit of the Loom cotton 'hipsters' as they are apparently called would be my go-to underwear, but here we are. They sit low and they fit comfortably under my super-low bump. :)

    I don't understand why I would need bigger underwear when they already seem so big they are falling down. My pants aren't falling down, I'm actually having a really hard time wearing my pants now (I guess I'm carrying super low?) but I'm always having to pull my underwear up. I wore a dress today and kept having to adjust! I wish people would tell me these things..."by the way, your underwear will fall down" lol

    Oh please. Before you make a crack on grammar you don't quite understand maybe you should check your spelling and punctuation. I'm not going to waste my time explaining why what I said was correct.

    Thank you for that. 
  • Will come out of lurk-dom for grammar!  OP, if you refer to one piece of underwear, you could probably squeak by with using "is."  However, you seemed to imply that all of your underwear were falling down, which requires the use of "are." 

    All of this, of course, is moot if you follow the mindset that since we refer to a single piece of underwear as a "pair," as we do with pants, the plural is always required.

    I'm a grammar geek. Embarrassed

    As to your actual problem...no idea.  I'd say if they are sliding off, then they probably are too large, but if they are rolling down, then they are probably too small.  Buy a size larger and a size smaller so that you can experiment with what fits best.

  • Oooo girl you are lucky! Ha! My panties have been not looking so hot for about a month 1/2 now. I wear the thongs from Victoria's Secret that have that lacey band thingy?around the waist part and those are the only ones I'm brave enough to put on. I don't look sexy at all. They totally do a dip in the front. I crack up everytime I put them on. I'm too afraid to even put my other cute thongs on.... do not want to se that right now. Hahahaha!

    ha-ha Yeah, I had to take an office poll & a co-worker explained it to me that way as well. I was going with the "pair" aspect of it all. Anyhoo, I apologized for being a #/ & I think all is well now, no matter how many "pair" I wear.
  • Of course all is well!  Who could hold a grudge against a girl with a dig bick?  Wink

    LOL you took a poll? eafogel, I am a language specialist. The word underwear can be used as a collective noun, which almost always requires a singular copula. In addition, since I wear only one pair of underwear, it is also to be used with a singular verb.

    As far as the "pair of" thing goes, when you say "My pants ____ falling down", you have to use ARE. But when you say "My pair of (socks, pants, etc) ____ on the floor", you actually use IS, not ARE, because the subject becomes PAIR, and the socks, pants, etc becomes part of an adjective phrase.

     

    AHHHH I still don't have staying-up underwear!!!!

    OK, now you've really peaked my interest.  I've never heard it explained that way before, and I graduated with a degree in English.  Your argument makes complete sense.

    When you say you are a language specialist, what do you mean?  Is it a hobby or is it something you do for a living?  I don't mean to pry, I'm just fascinated.

    And, in reading over my prior post, I think (OK, I know) I came across as condescending.  It truly wasn't my intent, I'm just a nerd!  And apparently I'm a nerd who needs to go back to school.... Wink

    I didn't feel you were condescending at all. I work with children with a low-incidence disability that directly impacts their ability to develop language normally. In order to do this I have to have regular teaching credentials, credentials in my field, and a certified language specialist. It's a special certification for people in my line of work (sorry I don't want to give any more personal info publicly than that). I do a ton of language analyzing in addition to other stuff and our meetings at work will sometimes be nothing but a discussion of a language construction. I also translate Latin for fun. How I got someone to marry and procreate with me I have no idea!!!

    I agree with rakle. Also, she "piqued" your interest, not "peaked."

    I had to laugh at this!  That's a mistake that regularly gets on my nerves when I see it done by others, and look at me... ::shakes head at self::

    I agree with her too.  Thanks for the correction.Smile

    What an awesome job!  You get to do something you're clearly passionate about and help children as well.  Your child is going to be so lucky when it comes time to write papers and learn grammar, since you'll be able to explain the trickier parts of language so well.

    I think you are now officially my Bump hero.

  • I had the same problem today with my bikini style.

    Yet I have others that make it apparent my hips have grown because they are a tad sung.

  • Somewhere along the line we went from underwear to grammar! Holy tomatoes! BAHAHAHA!!!!! I think this would fail in the area of continuity!
  • I went commando most of the time before getting KU, but now that's not an option.  Too much moisture.  My thongs stay up fine, but if I wear bikinis, I notice I have the same issue.

    I wear legging at work most days and noticed yesterday that I had to keep yanking them up, which I thought was weird since I figured they'd have a snugger fit now.
