Rated 4 out of 5Â by Justine Only choice if you want all white, but it's good
My gripe with the other panties Hanes sells: color. You don't get much of a choice ("assorted"), and many of the colors are too gaudy and the patterns too ugly. I'm a grown woman now. I don't wear bright orange panties or hideous pattens--not a little girl!
The waistband on these is really solid. They are of higher quality than the similar looking No-Ride up cotton 6-Pack (see recommended products below), which I totally love but regret is not sold in whites anymore (see my review there), so the extra cost is somewhat justified. However, the cotton is not quite as soft. But if you want white, this is your only option at the moment, it seems.
One more plus of the waistband: no brand name on it. I don't mind the world knowing I wear Hanes panties if the top slips out, but not everyone does. There's also some glimmer in the pattern-thing you see in the picture. It adds a hint of high class to the panties.
They do run a bit small and tighter, if you're used to the No-Ride up bikinis. They rise a bit lower (especially in front, with a slight scoop), which is always good too. I can wear my usual size 5 without any complaints or discomfort.
However, I knocked these down one star because they're not as good a value as I come to expect from Hanes. With only 3 to a pack, I expect a bit more for the money.
