Just okay...not sure these are 100% cotton, also buy at least one size smaller than indicated on sizing chart
on September 25, 2014
I've been buying hanes girls underwear for at least 10 years (adult underwear is much too large for me..), and for as long as I've been buying them, the size chart has been off. In the past (at least 4 years ago), the chart would recommend two sizes too large. Currently, the chart recommends one size too large. So while these HAVE gotten smaller, they still do NOT run small as other reviews have indicated. Many people mistakenly believe that the sizes are supposed to correspond with age (ie: size 10 for a 10 year old), but this is not true, and is probably a contributing factor as to why so many reviews mistakenly say these run small. I would buy these 2 sizes smaller than the size chart if you line dry or 1 size smaller if you use the dryer.
Sizing aside, the ones I got are labeled as 100% cotton and pretty much as expected. The stitching has actually gotten better/stronger since I bought them last, but the elastic & other materials are just a smidge thinner - still thicker than many other brands though.
UPDATE: I do not believe these are actually 100% cotton - they have already started pilling up (a month in), which has never happened to me with 100% cotton! :(
