Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Interesting that the BBC should use the word 'underpants', rather than the more generally used euphemism 'underwear', or the more specific 'knickers'.

Underpants were exclusively male wear when I live in the UK. Maybe the meaning has changed?

For specificity, I prefer the acronym invented by a friend of mine (so she says). BGKs are big girls' knickers. VBGKs would accurately describe the Bridget Jone's variety.

"Underpants" is the word Bridget Jones uses.  If you have not read the book or seen the film "Bridget Jones Diary" (the original, not the sequel) you are missing out on a true literary masterpiece.  ... I'm only half kidding.  If was fucking brilliant!
