Believe it or not, I’ve been looking for panties that come up to my bellybutton (I’ve had 3 kids & twins, it’s not pretty) don’t ride up my butt & are NOT cotton (that clothes cling to). I’ve tried so many different brands & am always disappointed. Till now. Maidenform is a name brand I’ve known all my life so I trust it. I figured I’d take a chance on these Flexees. They are the softest, smoothest briefs I’ve ever had. The sizing is perfect. They come right up to & just over my bellybutton. The waist band & leg bands are so comfortable I can’t even feel them. They don’t ride up my butt & my clothes glide right over them. I’m giving 5***** because of these fantastic features. However, the front of the panty is exactly the same fabric as the rest of it. Looking at pictures they make it appear as though the front panel was thicker & kind of like a shaper, it’s not, but that isn’t important to me. They do have a cotton crotch, but like every other brand I’ve tried for years, it’s short & set back too far so that it doesn’t cover the area most needed to be covered. I can live with that because these are the best fitting, soft, silky & most comfortable underwear I’ve found in 10 years. I definitely recommend them & will be buying more. The price is amazing, it comes out to just over $6 each (they’re sold in 3s), you can’t beat that!
