Covered-Waist Comfort-Leg Cotton Briefs (Package of 3 Pair)
Wish they were better
I have to wear this type of underwear because of skin allergies. I tried two previous style numbers from Vermont Country but they were not cut well and did not fit well. This style number fit, so I am keeping them. I have a 29 1/2" waist and 39" hips and size 7 fits well. I would like to order more, but my size is gone. They do not shrink much if you take them out of the dryer when still damp and hang dry them. They could be so much better if they used a finer quality cotton fabric that was softer and smoother. It would be worth additional cost.

100% Cotton and comfortable
Been looking for 100% cotton briefs that are comfortable and don't ride up and USA made. Seemed impossible until we found these! No elastic at the legs and only a small amount that's covered at the waist. Thanks again for great products!

For some reason elastic has started to bother me, so when I saw these briefs with the covered waist and comfort leg, I decided to give them a try. I an very happy with the comfort.
It would be lovely if a similar style in a mid-waist or bikini option was available.

Just what I wanted!
Soft and comfortable and they fit and did not shrink up when washed. I will buy more!

Best cotton panties I have ever had.
I love the covered waistband and the banded legs. Other brands have the elastic which always seem to cut me. I have been buying these for years. After I lost weight I found two unopened packages in my dresser and I was able to return them for a smaller size.

Love the covered waist . . .
These panties are really comfortable; I love how they "hug" me, and I really appreciate having my skin protected from all elastic. But I wish they came in various torso lengths, like some of VCS's other offerings. As it is, I have to roll the waistband down several times to be comfortable. Actually, I'd love a "hipster" version of these panties, with a slightly wider covered waistband . . . now that would be perfect!

not what expected
The cotton was not nearly as soft as expected. Actually kind of scratchy. Expected more from 100% cotton. Band on leg comes out very wrinkled. Don't like waistband either.

VCS goes the extra mile in comfort!!
I can't wear polyester or other man-made fibers. These wonderful all-cotton panties remind me of the kind my mother bought when i was a child. ALL the elastic is covered---YEAH! If you need a little more here or there (i need a shorter crotch-length in front, and longer in back) you can slowly, gently and CAREFULLY stretch these for a more individualized fit. I'm sure neither the manufacture nor Vermont Country Store would condone this--please don't sue me! I wear mine wrong-side out so that the seams don't irritate my skin.
I'm a very short petite but have been on serious steroids for several years. The same size has accommodated over a 30lbs. weight increase!! I put them through the washer and dryer-which shrinks them just a little, as one would expect, and "adjust" as mentioned above. You could do this when pants are wet from the washer, and line dry, too.
I haven't been so happy in my undies since i was a child! Thank you, Vermont Country Store, for caring about my comfort, and providing excellent variety in cotton underwear!!
