Women's Drawstring Boxer Short ( 2/Pack | Natural )
Absolutely TERRIBLE redesign.
I ordered the boxer style panties, all cotton with drawstring front. They fit so well and actually look like just a pair of white shorts. Very soft and smooth under my jeans. Best of all, no elastic at all. Most important since my skin is highly sensitive. I will order again. Thanks!!
Fabric is comfortable, soft, mid-weight, very stretchy, white cotton. But the seams on all the Cottonique undergarments are scratchy (stitching is for stretch, but the thread is hard.) Boxer shorts are way too big (size 5 boxers are couple sizes larger than the same size briefs; waist is 5" wider and hips 2.5" wider), making them way too bulky to wear under anything else, and too white and short to wear outside; maybe OK for sleeping. Cost is very high and 'understandably' they are not returnable. Other undergarments from Cottonique seem better.
This is the only product of its kind on the market. For years, the women's boxer short (with drawstring) was reliable and essential for people with allergies before the redesign. The semi-detached crotch panel allowed pad wings to meet without going down the legs of the boxer and around. The seams in the middle were not bulky. However, there are several flaws with the redesign that's now being sold:
1. The sewn-on crotch panel is not feasible for menstrual care. It does not allow the pad wings to meet without going outside the leg of the boxer short--which would be highly uncomfortable and impractical.
2. The sewn-on crotch panel is heavy and bulky. Even the model's pictures show how it sticks out. What woman wants to waddle around with a bulge sticking out like that, either for comfort or appearance?
3. The size is larger, which makes the underwear bulkier and more impractical.
Please, please bring back the old design.
