I really wanted to love these, but I find that the thick, extra-strength waistband is both a little too tight (I'm a bit thick-waisted) and tends to fold over during the day. At the end of the day, I have actual elastic marks in my skin from it. I think it both runs a little small and is just not great for my body type, which is too bad, as I love a good pair of high-waisted underwear and I've had better luck with more minimal designs. For reference I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs and I ordered a small.
First things first, these ran extremely small. I’m a 24 waist and should have sized up to a medium. I can’t imagine these underwear are size inclusive/fit properly for anyone over a size 10. I guess I was expecting the waistband to be a little more stretchy. It was very structured and ‘hard’ and had minimal movement. The cotton part of the underwear was great however and I love the fit of the boy short overall. I would buy more if the waistband was changed to cotton as well but I can’t do the thick elastic band.
I think I would love these if they fit correctly. I ordered my usual size, xs but find them to be too tight in the waist for comfort. Recommend sizing up.
Women's High Waist Brief
I’ve been eying the boy shorts for a while but decided to grab a few pairs of these high waist briefs as well. So glad I did! The fit is very comfy, and the colors (a muted orange, blue, and green) are lovely. I don’t love the thickness of the band around the leg opening, but I’ll mostly be wearing these to bum around the house, so I’m not as worried about VPL in this case. I’ll definitely snag some more of these if I order again.
