The patterns and style of these panties are very nice. It keeps them from looking like "granny" panties. My one complaint is that they seem to run a bit small after a wash. I'm usually a size medium so I thought a size 7 would be more than enough. I'm 5'2" and about 120 lbs and I should probably have ordered at least 2 sizes bigger. And since they fit a little tight they show a panty line, which means I can't really wear them with anything but jeans. I gave them 4 stars because they would probably be just fine in a larger size.
This panty gives good coverage in back but I found I did not like the wide sides and how the front was shaped/cut. I purchased my usual size; not sure if a bigger size might work better but I'd go with Joe Boxer next time for a few more dollars and a more true fit. Also do not think the fabric is the best quality or sewn well and frankly do not expect them to last very long. Not that it matters to everyone or should but 1 of my pair's bows was way off center - not sewn on in the middle at all, off by an inch or more!
