I ordered these panties after finding out that thongs were a terrible idea for camping and hiking. Wedgies are not an issue with these. The bikinis are easy to hand wash, and they dry practically overnight. The material is thin, so it breathes, and I can hardly tell I'm wearing them. The rise is low enough to stay below the waist of my shorts even while hiking. The texture is really pretty, too. They do not have a cotton gusset, but there's plenty of room for a pantyliner to keep discharge and periods from being a problem. Definitely my outdoor panties from now on.
Soft, stretchy and doesn't ride up. Feels like nothing, but covers in all the right places. Bought medium, 38"-39" hips, 147lbs. Fit is perfect. Looking to add more colors when I have more cash. Loved for snowboarding, will be perfect for backpacking too.
"Am I really writing a review for underwear?"
Yes I am! I absolutely fell in love with these bikini bottoms the first time I wore them. I did a 20 mile hike in them and didn't even notice that they were there. They didn't ride up like most underwear and were very comfortable. They do fit true to size also. My only draw back to them is that they took longer to dry than what I had planned for.
