    I ran into that with my youngest. She wanted Monsters Inc., Toy Story and even Nemo. So we bought from the boy isle for a couple years. :) I mentioned it to some friend and several of them had bought “boy” undies for their girls

  2. Underoos were excellent. I had R2-D2 and C-3PO as well as Wonder Woman sets. *sigh*

    When I was at uni I had a female friend who was a huge Harry Potter fan. She discovered that a department store were selling a range of boys’ underpants with the Hogwarts house logos on the front. She absolutely loved them, and eventually decided to buy a pair of Slytherin. She confessed to me one day that they were actually extremely comfortable! I’ve always wondered why boys’ and men’s underwear are designed so differently – they’re actually designed to *cover* the bum, and little ‘short’ styles are really common, whereas the majority of women’s undies are designed to be skimpy, and unless you wear Spanx or ‘granny’ pants, it’s virtually impossible to find ordinary undies that actually cover the bum! I’ve often looked with envy at the coverage possible from men’s underwear.
