Rated 4 out of 5Â by Laurel from Sunny Phoenix If you have sensitive skin....
I live in Phoenix where it is very hot (and sometimes humid) during the summer. The weather coupled with my sensitive skin requires me to wear panties which are cotton, and loose-fitting at the panty line (where my leg meets my trunk)(I am extremely sensitive to elastic at the panty line, even when it is covered with cotton fabric).
These briefs are comfortable, and solve my problems, but could be improved a bit.
When you first put them on, the briefs are snug around the top of the leg, but quickly loosen as you move about (they are comfortable, yet they do not ride up). The fabric is nice, good quality, medium weight, 100% cotton. I can wear them comfortably all day.
However, I wish they had a slightly lower rise...I am of average build, yet these briefs extend 2" above my belly button. I am 5'3" and 145 lb, and I wear a size 8 for a little extra room. Also, I wish they would offer them in Black.
Hope you are successful in resolving your own sensitive skin issues. These briefs will likely help.

...Just plain tired of binding, uncomfortable, undies.
Plus, to be perfectly honest, I have a chronic 'irritation' which is aggravated with all underwear I had previously tried.
I find these run large, so be advised; also, shrinkage is minimal. Suggest you order one size down, at least, from your OTC brands.
I'm about to order more, after I finish this survey!
Color me "comfortable"

I used to wear underwear like this years ago made by Carter. I especially love the leg bands. They are not binding. They fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bee Bee Way off sizing on a wonderful product. Order 2 sizes down.
First time buyer of anything from the Vermont Country store.
As I said the item is great but I have to give these away and order two sizes smaller in them.
Luckily I know someone who can use these and probably needs them so it works out fine because I can afford to buy more but these and your non covered waist band panty are really 2 sizes larger than they should be. So I am going to order 2 sizes down and hopefully that takes care of my problem.
Don't hesitate on the quality just ORDER SMALLER than the sizes listed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RI Customer Love the Non-Elastic Leg and Covered-Elastic Waist
I'm so glad that I was finally able to find a comfortable 100% cotton brief without any elastic in the leg. On hot days or when exercising, most elastic-leg panties will tend to chafe after awhile. I also appreciate the covered-elastic waist. So far I have only worn these once, but so far I am happy. I will write an updated review after they've been laundered.
One suggestion: I wish they came in BLACK and other dark colors so they would look a little less like granny panties.
They may not be the most inexpensive panty, but if they prevent chafing and irritation, it's worth it. And it's great that they come in Plus Sizes. Thank you, Vermont Country Store, for providing great products like this and for listening to your customers.

I was looking for underwear that covered in all the places that major brands didn't. I found what I was looking for at Vermont Country Store. The underwear fit and haven't shrank and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by R&D Looking for quality, go elsewhere
I needed a pair of good cotton underwear without elastic in the leg openings, yet with a band. This is NOT the underwear I wanted. Cotton is CHEAP. I always thought Vermont Country Store stood for quality...misconception. Also, large women are not shaped like pregnant women. This pair of underwear was cut for a woman who was at least 7-9 months pregnant. The butt of the underwear fit, but the front sagged. I pinched the fabric to fit it to my stomach, there was at least 5 inches too much fabric from waist to crotch. I will not purchase from Vermont Country Store again. This is the second time I have had to send a shipment back because of poor quality. Give me a decent product and charge me a dollar more.
