“I love Pansy for underwear,” says Alyssa Lau, the founder of sustainability-focused e-retailer New Classics Studios. She calls the California-based ethical underwear company’s pieces “sturdy and beautifully crafted,” and notes that they’re made from organic cotton that’s grown and milled in the U.S. “For me, wearing underwear that’s comfortable, easy to care for, made to last, and crafted with natural fabrics (for the breathability!) is very important,” Lau told us. “Pansy checks all those boxes.”
Former Strategist writer and editor Margaret Rhodes wrote an ode to these high-rise briefs, which she says are like “a warm embrace,” and akin to curling up with a hot-water bottle or a puppy. Part of the Elance’s magic, according to Rhodes, is that “unlike the chic — even slightly sexy — grandma-esque briefs from lines like Araks and Baserange, the plain cotton Elance leaves pretty much everything to the imagination. You don’t wear these undergarments — they wear you. More exactly, they swaddle you.”
I’m 5’3” 145lbs and the O/S plus fit OK. It’s big but I hate tight thongs. I’m going to cut the back and just sew it back together to customize the fit. I just didn’t think the other size would fit. Unfortunately there were only 2 choices and I really like the accessibility of this style! I’d only buy again if I can’t find more size options in a similar style.
In addition to our hosiery collection, we also carry leggings and socks that fit perfectly into any woman’s modern wardrobe. Leggings are a reliable staple that work in any woman’s wardrobe whether she is average or plus size. We carry an array of leggings that go from basic black spandex to cutting edge lace.

Change your thong on a daily basis. One of the problems that sometimes occurs with wearing thongs, is that they may spread bacteria faster than regular underwear, which can cause infections. Because the thong is touching both the anus and the vulva, bacteria can travel much easier between the two, especially when your thong shifts in position throughout the day. This isn’t a problem for most women, but if you experience yeast or bacterial infections frequently, you may need to switch thongs more often.
First discovered these bras years ago, and I wouldn't wear anything else. They are beautifully made, fit me perfectly, launder well and are comfortable. Love the ease of a front close and the wires never dig. I've always had a problem with straps slipping down until I found Strap-Mates. I have them on all of my bras and this handy, inconspicuous little item is truly a life-saver.
In 1953, Allen Gant, Sr., of Glen Raven Knitting Mills developed a commercial equivalent to these hose that he named "Panti-Legs", but these were not brought to the open market until about 1959. During this time, Ernest G. Rice invented his own design for pantyhose similar to those worn today, and in 1956 he submitted a patent titled "Combination Stockings and Panty". This design was adopted by other makers, and this caused disputes in U.S. courts for many years before the patent was upheld some time after Rice's own death.
