Wow! I'm so sorry I never checked back to this thread. I thought no-one ever replied since I was never notified of any replies.
The update is that I decided to go ahead and put her in regular panties. When we are at home this is all we will wear, so that she will be really aware of them. I explained to her that these were different panties, and that they would not absorb her pee so she needed to use the potty if she wanted to wear them. I also reminded her that she was wearing panties and would ask her if she knew what they meant, to which she would answer, "the potty".
Now usually she insists on getting dressed once she's put on her panties. This is not a problem because she will *only* wear dresses, much to my dismay, so I only try to encourage her to wear socks instead of tights which we'll change before we go out. She'll have the occassional accident, and needs more reminding, but she seems to be getting the hang of it.
We have now made a rule about going, or at least trying to go before we leave the house, and we almost always have to tell her when to go when she's out. I felt bad about this until I realized that she just doesn't want to miss anything when we're out and about, and that even as an adult I consider whether or not I should use the toilet before I leave the house, etc..
The good news is she asked to go to the potty today while we were out, and during the middle of our lunch, so that's great!
Thanks for all your replies!
