Familiarity: I've used it several times
I like hipster style underpants. I wish someone made them in wool. Patagonia's bikini bottoms are a good style, but they don't make wool ones. I tried a pair of these, with high hopes. The fabric and color are great, but the cut seemed suspiciously steep to stay in place. The elastic was so tight, though, that they seemed to stay put initially. Alas, within 2 washes in cold water (no dryer) the elastic wouldn't dig into my upper thigh anymore (which was the only thing holding it in place since the bikini style is cut too sharply to stay put from cut alone) and they started to ride up. Busy nurses can't be adjusting their undies all the time, and nothing makes a long day longer like having your underpants shifting around under your scrubs. If these were cut in more of a hipster style, I would buy like 10 pair and get rid of all my other underpants.
