UPDATE: Okay, so, a few weeks ago, Monique Bowley decided to share with the world her love of these undies. It wasn’t sponsored, just a public service announcement.
And at the end of the story, she said quite cheekily – ‘Hey Jockey Australia if you’re reading this, firstly, give the person who designed these knickers a high five and a pay rise, and secondly don’t send me any knickers, send some to Catherine House, because they need them more than I do.’
Lo and behold they READ it and they did and they bloody sent those women TWO HUNDRED PAIRS of knickers and other delights! Thanks to Nadia at Jockey who we think was the gem behind it all.
We are so happy that a) these knickers exist in the first place and b) the women who need them the most are able to see how great they are for themselves.
Here’s to great undies and even better women.

"Big call" I thought.
But that was over three years ago, and she was right. I've never looked back.
It's become my ultimate life hack:
