Not a fan of these. Compared to AE's other cotton low rise panties, the material is quite thin, the elastic band at the waist is considerably thinner which makes them feel less secure and like they're not staying up as well. The crotch material is wider for some reason? Without going into too much detail I find this makes them trickier to wear with pads with wings at that time of the month. Definitely not buying anymore. AE, please bring back the ones that have the diagonal banding.
