These used to be the best panties, amazing infact, but some genius obviously decided to change them, now making them the worst panties ever. The fabric used to be thicker and held it's shape beautifully after many wears and washings. The fabric now stretches out after only a short time on (we're talking 1 hour or less), and starts to slip down because it's stretched out so much. The elastic along the waist and legs was terrific. It helped the panties stay in place and didn't dig into the skin. The elastic now, is useless. It doesn't hold anything up and ends up stretched out and loose. It boggles my mind why you would change a sure thing, but I will continue my search for good underwear everywhere and anywhere else, except Addition Elle, AND cross my fingers that the 10 pairs of older panties I own in the older style, last me a long, long, loooong time.
