    Help please.

    I translate 'braguitas de encaje' to be lace panties.

    But what are 'bragas de cuello vuelto' ?

    Gracias ante de mano.

    Huge granny ones. Hehehe.

    It's like a joke. They're so big they could almost be called 'turtleneck' panties: de cuello vuelto.

    That makes sense.

    On the next page of the book they are called ' bragas de abuela'.

    Muchas gracias.

    Gracias a ti por las risas. Sí, bragas de abuela es lo mismo, pero sin la exageración.

    Ha, ha, this reminds me of Bridget Jones Diary, here's the quote:

    • Major dilemma. If actually do, by some terrible chance, end up in flagrante surely these would be most attractive at crucial moment. (holds up thong) However, chances of reaching crucial moment greatly increased by wearing these; scary stomach-holding-in pants very popular with grannies the world over. Tricky. Very tricky.
