I'd have to admit that I don't do that well with other brands of er, support pants. For a start, they look absolutely hideous - there just isn't another way to say it. Any woman clambering into a pair of beige pants that start somewhere under the boobs and finish just above the knee isn't going to look stunning. At least, not until you slip into your little black dress and find yourself as pert and curvy as Jessica Rabbit, and then the fight to get into them in the first place seems worthwhile. And a struggle it is. When they first unfurl from the packet, Bio Fir look staggeringly small and they're made from what feels like industrial elastic so the actual entry point seems like an impossibility.
