Women's White Cotton Knit Pettipants
100% cotton - but with NYLON lace
I was delighted to find VCS since they have a large number of 100% cotton clothing items, and I am allergic to synthetics. I was disappointed to find that the lace that adorns the legs of the pettipants is nylon (and a very scratchy nylon, at that), so not a good choice for me.
Should I have read the details more closely? Sure. But I find it somewhat problematic that a great point is made of calling these "100% cotton" when they have an elastic waist and tons of synthetic lace. VCS, not everyone shops here for modesty clothing - some of us just want old fashioned 100% cotton or other natural fibers.

Make them in black I beg of you!!
For those of us who like to wear darker colors, the white can show through or peek out. GIVE US BLACK VCS! (I vote for black in the cotton slips as well)

I am buying a new pair of these only because my 20-year-old pair is getting dingy! Elastic and lace are like new! These are so comfy and the cotton versus nylon helps minimize perspiration. I have yet to find the material these would cling to.
A great buy!!!

Cool and Comfortable
These cotton pettipants are great. Yes, as other reviewers mentioned they do have an unusually long rise. However, after washing, they do shrink a bit, and I find that because they sit higher, the fabric glides over and camouflages the muffin top created by my underwear (or, perhaps, created by too much chocolate?). Anyway, they are cool, they do not stick to my skin in humid weather, they keep my thighs from rubbing, and they do not ride up under my skirt. The fabric is thin, but not see-through. The three-tiered lace means that I can order another pair to cut and hem shorter without losing the border lace. Very happy.

These pettipants have solved my problems with wearing dresses. They are light weight, made of cotton and very comfy. I wish they came in more colors, like black and nude.

cool and comfortable
Hard to find 100% cotton slips and the like these days. These are perfect for the summer months. I have been buying these and the cotton slips for years. Only complaint I have about the pettipants is that the stiching seems to come out very easily, otherwise these are great!

The waistband comes up to your ribs. If you're 90, you might not mind that. If you have very thin thighs, these might not ride up. If you are an average woman whose thighs touch, these ride up. The pair I bought lost their shape completely after two washes. Junk.

Replacing all other panties....
These are comfortable, feminine -- I wear mostly dresses and these are perfect. A little like a slip.....they are cool, true to size, all cotton, but I do not use a dryer so don't know if they shrink.
They're good to sleep in with an undershirt and just wear around the house with a t-shirt on a lazy day.
I'm thinking I'll replace all the 'others' and only use these - maybe keep a few others for pants.
Would like to request different colors in the future.
The price is too much, but cannot find the same/quality anywhere else so far.
