Sounded nice, but...
on December 31, 2013
I chose these because of the description and previous five-star review. I formerly had been a Hanes wearer, but I have 3 children and a husband for whom I also buy underwear, and I've noticed in the past year or so that the quality of Hanes seems to have been trending down, whereas FTL has been trending upwards, so that was a consideration as well. In general, I wear only darker colored cotton underwear, but avoid "granny panties." The fabric on these is an alarming disappointment. The roughest cotton I have ever seen, and these are not dishcloths, but intimates, no less. They are a very loose, thin weave, and while the plastics may be covered, they are flimsy as well, and the sewing weak. The polka dots are not in the fabric, but merely stamp painted on, and the color is only on the outside, not through and through. Single layer fabric except for crotch. Never seen that before in grown up undies, but maybe it's cool in the heat? It's too bad, as the cut is nice. Even in a multi pack, they are so cheaply made, they are very expensive for what you get. Now that I think of it, they kind of remind me of very generic little girls' underwear, so may be good for a teen or tween, but if you are a practical woman looking for something "youthful" these still are a big step down from what you may be used to.
