Rated 2 out of 5Â by MissLeopard83 Too small and scratchy
According to the reviews here, I knew it was best to order 1 size higher than usual but the size I got was still too small - it feels 2 sizes smaller than it is marked. Also, the lace is unbearably scratchy. I am returning them and getting the other cotton pettipants here. I hoped these would work since they are shorter whereas the others are longer than my knee. I plan to take them to an alterations shop to have them tailored to my length. I do not recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Youngster Good old-fashioned comfort
This summer's periodic heatwaves in the Northeast had me thinking about wearing pettipants in summer under sheer dresses. I knew VCS would have them and I appreciated that there were no surprises, just the cotton comfort I remember from the past. I'm on the short side, and I was able to shorten them to work under above-the-knee dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bolivarbabe Great when wearing dresses and skirts in winter!
No longer do I have goose bumps on my upper legs because I now have the knit pettipants. They are not only practical but wonderfully comfortable. Try them!

I'm not crazy about these. The elastic is exposed and they are long waisted. But, because they are long I was able to turn the top once and sew it over so the elastic doesn't touch my skin. The lace is pretty but it is stiff and uncomfortable. I will likely use these to make a
pattern and sew my next pair myself using cotton lace.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Linda M. This is very comfortable and does not ride up.
I am a square dancer and while we have pettipants that are full for wearing with the full skirts, nothing (until now) works with the prairie skirts. I will order more.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Allergic 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bbk 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!!!
