Barely There CustomFlex Fit&#153; Boyshort
There has to be better out there...
Purchased 3 pairs; black/white polka dot, the pink strips, and the soft taupe leopard. I am not very big, but these don't even begin to cover my back side. I purchased one size larger than my regular size in these, based on some of the other review feedback. If I pull the legs down to cover my cheeks, then the waist is below my hips and showing crack; and visa versa. They are also terribly thin. They work o.k. under pantyhose (because they hold them in place...), but not so good with pants or jeans. For the price per pair, I REALLY expected much more in terms of fit, comfort, and quality.

Nice Fit and Multi-functional
I have had not-so-great experiences with boy short undies before, but these were on sale so I thought I'd give them a try. I like the way these fit. They were a little more snug than I had expected but they stayed in place, not creeping into places they shouldn't. They also gave a smooth look under my more closely fitting clothes. No panty line under most of pants. Barely visible under my yoga pants. They were very comfortable to walk and workout in mostly because I didn't have to keep tugging them every 5 minutes as I often have to do with regular cotton panties. This was my first experience with the microfiber material. I like the smooth feel of the material, but I think that it does trap more moisture than the cotton I usually wear. Not as breathable as what I am accustomed to wearing.

Not worth the money
I have several pair, of a different style Barely There panties and love the material. I liked the look of the Boy Short and purchased 2 pair. Upon taking them out of the packaging and inspecting, one had a few loose threads, but nothing to be alarmed about. I wash my undergarments before wearing them, so I popped them into the washer on the hand wash cycle. The pair with the loose threads did not survive the first wash. The 2nd pair lasted 3 washings. Extremely disappointed in this product and certainly not worth the price.

Not quite seamless
The description says seamless, but there are two transverse seams at the front and back of the crotch panel where it joins the rest. I have experienced the fabric coming apart at these seams on about half the pairs I have. Not totally in two pieces, but the knit comes apart. If not for this defect, these would be perfect. I suppose I should return the defective ones, but I suspect that it's a design flaw not a manufacturing defect and any exchange would suffer the same problem.
That being said, these have a lot going for them otherwise. The size is good fit for me, and I love that they stretch in all directions. The description says a "hint of stretch" but I think they're more than that, and I like it. The microfiber yarns are really soft and silky.
