I recently came across DiaryDoll – a creation of TV presenter Carol Smillie and her friend and business partner, tennis star Annabel Croft.
They’re pants. No, not Carol and Annabel – the product. It is pants, in the literal sense. Special pants with a secret waterproof lining. Perfect, apparently, for periods, pelvic floor and post-maternity problems.
As soon as I saw them, and read the excellent reviews, I realised that I need these pants in my life. No more fretting about Aunt Flo’s surprise visits, nor having to sleep on a towel for several nights a month.
I ordered my pants – and I wasn’t disappointed when they arrived.
They mostly look and feel like regular pants. Designed to be worn with your usual sanitary protection, their secret weapon is a lightweight, waterproof lining between the layers of fabric in the gusset, trapping any embarrassing leaks and providing extra reassurance.
They sit quite low on the tummy – so not exactly ‘granny pants’ – and the gusset is wider than other knickers, which helps to make them super effective.
They’re made of a breathable cotton modal fibre mix, which makes them easy to air dry after washing, and they’re comfy, too. They’re available in black, baby blue and pale pink – an option for every outfit.
Most importantly, they provide a level of reassurance that other underwear just doesn’t give if you have heavy periods or a sensitive bladder.
Those who know me will know that I don’t part easily with my hard-earned cash, but I even went on to order a second pair. That, in itself, speaks volumes!
